Come on, this is the one GBA game I've asked since GBA VC was announced for the Wii U. I don't care about anything else, give me this.

This is the one thing I want from Square on the Wii U. I've never managed to finish VI, but the gamepad would be the perfect device to do it on. Unfortunately I have an NA Wii U...

It's amazing how little Nintendo seems to care about the eShop overall this generation compared to the Wii VC.

Or maybe I'm just bitter because Metroid Zero Mission STILL isn't on the eShop in NA. There is literally, LITERALLY, no excuse for this!

Maybe it's SE not interested in publish them outside Japan? I don't really know how VC releases work tbh. But yeah, if Nintendo were more interested in make VC robust again they would probably worked with SE to release these outside Japan.

They care alot more about the eshop, its massively improved since it started. They care less about the Wii U & 3DS VC which is a shadow of Wii's.

Nintendo didn't even see great returns from the massive Wii VC investment. Its not hard to see why they are being picky and slow with their releases on the Wii U since it has a tenth of the userbase. Don't forget fan favourites don't always mean lots of sales.

Man, why the fuck are we not seeing these S-E releases in NA??? I had FFIV, FFVI, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger on my Wii VC. My Wii crapped out before I got a Wii U, so I was never able to transfer my games. Is S-E making the decision to not release these games over here or is it the usual and expected incompetence of NoA? This shit is ridiculous.

So why would you donwload this version over the super famicom version?

Maybe for the extra little bits but yeah, a sane person would just grab the SFC version that's already there.

Terrible music and the colours are going to look so bad on the TV.

Seems like they read yesterday's thread

Yesterday's thread was based on this actually.

It's amazing how bare VC on Wii U is. Nintendo really doesn't give a fuck haha.

Well Nintendo can't release SE's games on it.

The music on this version is awful and you can't patch it like the GBA original. But the new localization is nice, it puts everything in line with modern FF standard nomenclature.

It also has 4 new espers, new ultimate weapons and armor, two new post game dungeons, and a Mega boss.

Can't get this with the botched music. Even with all the extras.

Music plays a huge role in Final Fantasy for me.

Took them long enough. I'd rather have this on the 3DS. Here's hoping though this releases in North America.

This doesn't make any sense in any context. A highly prized high quality Zero Mission isn't released but Pinball or other crappy NES games are financially viable?

So why exactly is it that great titles like this don't get released in NA? The WiiU isn't exactly swimming in releases, you'd think these would be easy money.

It quite shocking. WiiWare was full of amazing games, even rarities like Castlevania Rondo of Blood. And it still working...

WiiU vc was supposed to improve not being bare bones.

Oh well

Wii U sales must be enough to satisfy Reggie at the moment. We know how they play this game. They'll release this kind of stuff over the summer to fill gaps in the release schedule. VC is like their reserve tank.
