Wonder if NOA will do something similar, but the NA anniversary wont be for another 9 months or so, right? That would put it well into the Switch's life, so I doubt it would be just for the 3DS at that point.

Personally, I'm holding off on buying any more VC games until they announce if the Switch will be compatible with Wii U/3DS VC games.

All those games except last two are already available on NA eShop. They can't do something similar because there isn't much else left to release. Capcom and Konami already released their SNES library and anything else would have license issues.

Potential releases: Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy II (IV), Final Fantasy III (VI), Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Koei stuff (Nobunaga's Ambition, Liberty or Death etc).

Japan has been getting SFC games in periodic bulk lots for a while now, don't expect a similar bulk release elsewhere.

On June 26, 2013 FF3/6 and Secret of Mana hit the Japanese Wii-U virtual console.

What's taking so long NoA?

Quick off-topic question: do the SNES VC games on the 3DS use the same button layout as the original titles? I've only tried Gameboy games so far, and I really wish the main button was assigned to Y and the secondary button assigned to B.

Square Enix's lack of releases on both 3DS and Wii U VC in the west is baffling. Yet somehow we got FFTA on Wii U and they were totally on board for NES Classic Mini.

Those are some really nice games to add.

Was there a new thread for this? For the second round Japan got:

Live A Live
- fuck yeah!
Super Famicom Wars - if Advance Wars is never gonna come to the system outside DS BC then this'll do nicely, but i've never played it. Fuck yes!
Mario's Super Picross - oh shit fuck yeah!
Kirby no Kirakira Kizzu (Kirby's Super Star Stacker?) Dunno about this.
Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 - hell fucking yeah!
Pop n' Twinbee - fucking yes, so good!.

Egh, didnt see the thread update.

Only one of these games I bought before on VC is Mario's Super Picross. It's a good update for me.
