Oh damn... That's a convincing argument for them to not bother working out a deal with MS for Rare games.

If Nintendo signs off on MS getting the HD Remaster they can use Rare games for this...

An N64 Mini would be insane to me... in the best way possible. If only they could get Body Harvest on it -- so much nostalgia with that game. At least we'd be likely to get OoT and MM.

What's the fucking point. I'll stop at the Snes

We got DK64 on Wii U VC with Jetpac still in it, which is 100% owned by MS now. MS is doing Minecraft crossplay with Nintendo and showed a Switch at their own conference. I think the MS/Nintendo relationship has thawed out.

If this means what we all think it means, and it gets the Rare games on it I will weep openly with Joy.

You can almost guarantee it'd be missing Conkers Bad Fur day either way though, which would be a damned shame.

I think it's possible we might see Rare stuff on an N64 Mini, but I wouldn't count on it. So with that in mind, here's what I think we'll get:

Super Mario 64
Mario Kart 64
Mario Party 2
Paper Mario
Super Smash Bros.
Ocarina of time
Majora's Mask
Star Fox 64
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
F-Zero
Donkey Kong 64
Yoshi's Story
Pokemon Snap
Sin & Punishment
Castlevania 64
Megaman Legends
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (?)

= 17 games? Maybe that's being too optimistic though. I do think we'll see some third party games in there (possibly not the ones I listed) but I wasn't really sure what they'd be. Maybe Goemon, Ogre Battle, Harvest Moon, or something like Glover, haha.

I feel the opposite. I love the NES/SNES minis but feel like N64 games have aged terribly for the most part (not just N64 to be fair - PS1/Saturn also didn't age well, since that gen was largely developers getting used to the shift from 2D to 3D).

Of course there are some games from that era that still hold up, like Mario 64. So I'm not hating the whole generation.

Fully expect Rayman 2 from Ubisoft to end up on the console and to a lesser extent Mischief Makers as the only viable Square Enix game. I just dont see any Eidos title like Gex or Fighting Force taking the Square spot.

I still feel like they're weakening the long term attractiveness of their newest console by continuing to hamstring its backward compatibility capabilities in order to push these other classic consoles out.

Id rather they released Goldeneye for both switch and xbox one and this actually being fair for both sides and have the exact same content, except maybe giving extra controller options.

Microsoft has played ball with Nintendo on Rare franchises before (see the Banjo spinoff on GBA, etc). People said Nintendo wouldn't include Super FX chip games in the SNES Classic — and nobody expected Star Fox 2 to be included — so let's not jump to conclusions about Rare here. It's entirely possible Nintendo will find a way to include those titles.

After the N64 Classic has its time-limited run, maybe they'll take all of the games for all of the Classic editions (NES, SNES, N64) and make them the effective launch lineup for the Switch Virtual Console.

Up to 3 Mario Party games

What good 3rd party stuff would they be able to get? The Rare games would be out of reach, right?

Beetle Adventure Racing or GTFO!

It had better not take them that long to launch the Virtual Console on the Switch. N64 Classic isn't likely to come out until like September, 2018. Fuck that.

What if Nintendo had multiple versions of the N64 mini both with two controllers. One would be the kid friendly Mario 64 edition and the other had titles with a higher age ratings like Doom 64 and Mortal Kombat.

A Gamecube Mini would be doable if Nintendo feels the interest is there. Its miniDVD-based discs offered just 1.5GB of space.

I don't think the most important question here is when we're getting VC, it's if we're getting VC on Switch, at all. We know there's a subscription service coming next year that will include some NES games, but as far as what we actually know right now, that's it.

They should include Goldeneye 007, but work a deal with MS to allow the release of Goldeneye XBLA on 360/XBO as a trade. And give a cut to Activision or whoever currently holds the Bond license.

They could do a Game Boy Mini.

Ideally, it would compile games across all generations of GB, from the original to Advance.

Stuff like Link's Awakening, Oracle of Seasons/Oracle of Ages, Advance Wars, Golden Sun, Metroid Fusion, Zero Mission, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, etc, all on one system.

The AKI WCW/WWF games are almost definitely not going to happen. I imagine likeness rights would be a hassle plus there's the fact that WCW/NWO Revenge and WWF No Mercy have this man on the roster

I imagine they'd probably do Game Boy (including Color) and Game Boy Advance separately. The original Game Boy design is too iconic.
