Am I correct that you can't get the lost levels on VC?

It's there, it is 600pts instead of the standard 500pts, and of course only in Japanese.

I wish they would just sell a "bundle" of those games in the VC for that price. I don't want to put a disc in to play these games...

It is cheaper to buy them separately from VC than this disc bundle. Mario 1, 2, and 3 are 500pts each, and Lost Levels is 600pts, for a total of 2100 pts ($21). And of course you don't need the disc to play when buying from VC.

This collection is only for people who want the le add-ins.

Went ahead and preordered and found that I had a $5 promo I didn't even know about! :D

$24.99 - $20.02 trade in credit I had on my account = $6.47 whenever it ships. (darn sales tax)

Don't have any of these besides the old cartridges so this is good news for me.

As someone who just ridiculed the set, I will point out that you never really OWN anything on the virtual console. Had I not already fell for Nintendo's trick and bought Mario 1, 2 and 3 on VC I might buy this disk. But this re-releasing is getting out of hand.

Why isn't this collection made for the DS? I haven't turned on my Wii in months but I play my DS almost daily. Is this going to be truly limited? Anyone know how many copies were made for the Japanese release?

^ Looks like it's not out of hand.

If whores like us keep buying and getting excited about these collections they'll keep doing it. 25th Anniversary set is special though as most of us here probably got into gaming with Mario.

I haven't bought the games on VC yet, so this a perfect opportunity for me to pick everything up AND on disc too! YAY :D

Because Nintendo already has a SNES emulator written for the Wii.

Just to play devil's advocate... Technically you don't own it on a disc either, you just purchase the rights to use it; but I get what you're saying. ;)

great post OP, as always! :)

Getting this is a no-brainer! I already have all these on the VC anyway, but damn, this package will look really nice on the shelf!

I don't know how many copies they released in Japan but Nintendo is notorious for discontinuing LE sets (Metroid Prime Trilogy), and even some regular games from time to time. The description from the press release says it's while supplies last so I think it will truly be limited

Limited Edition will be available for purchase while supplies last.

How could you not want this? $30 is way cheaper than the average new release Wii game and all this bonus content on top of that? Yes please!

Yeah they likely will. Nintendo's official page for the game listed the following retailers:

Amazon
Best Buy
Gamestop
TRU
Walmart

Wow, I can't believe I am going to buy these same games again. I don't want to buy them just because I have bought them so many times before (NES, Mario All-Stars, GBA, Virtual Console), but I just can't pass up this limited edition.


Seriously. Already own multiple physical copies of all these games, yet I'm still compelled to buy this. Damn you, Nintendo.

When is the Zelda 25th anniversary? Maybe with that they will include the Gameboy games, since there are only 2 NES games.

The series began in 1986, so next year is the 25th.

I can easily see them re-releasing the LE collection they had for Gamecube.

Have they announced the Zelda 25th anniversary collection? Or are you just guessing they will based on the Mario one?

Dang, I just ordered using one click and it charged me shipping. So I had to cancel it and I'm going to reorder using regular checkout method. I want the price gurantee thing though but I doubt it will go down in price anyway.

Nintendo is amazing, 25 YEARS of the same game being released. Quite an achievment. Must make other companies marketing teams green with envy! And we buy it everytime! :lol:


Guys, Nintendo isn't the only company to do this:

  • Final Fantasy, 1987, NES
  • Final Fantasy, 1989, MSX
  • Final Fantasy I-II, 1994, NES
  • Final Fantasy, 2000, WonderSwan Color
  • Final Fantasy Origins, 2002, Playstation
  • Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, 2004, GBA
  • Final Fantasy Mobile, 2004, Mobile
  • Final Fantasy Anniversary Edition, 2007, PSP
  • Final Fantasy, 2009, Wii VC
  • Final Fantasy, 2010, iPhone
And, honestly, Final Fantasy wasn't as good.

If this game is widely sold it won't be worth anything so why are some people buying 2 copies? If it was only sold at one retailer or through Nintendo's website then it might actually be rare but this won't be. I'll wait for a price drop.

How the Fuck is this the 25th anniversary of Mario? Super Mario Bros. 1, perhaps, but Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong were out well before 1985...1981 or around there. Too lazy to go look it up.
