Nice. At least someone's supporting the Virtual Console. There are quite a few games on this list I'll be picking up, if not all of them.

Agreed.  This is pretty fantastic.

I'm glad Capcom realizes how much easy money the VC can be. Very little work involved, so easy to profit.

Retro DeckadesJune 09, 2014

This is excellent news. All are solid titles, and there are a couple of rare gems in there as well. Looking forward to finally being able to download the original Breath of Fire!

oh Jonathan Metts, yoohoo, I got some exciting news for you old buddy old pal.

This is literally the best news that will come out of E3 for me.  Being able to finally play Demon's Crest and MMX3, after 20 years of waiting is just to good.  Those were two of the SNES games I wanted to play the most as a kid but none of the stores around where I lived carried them.  Then when I finally became old enough to start buying older games online, the prices for both games was just too insanely high.  Same reason I never got Chrono Trigger until it hit the Virtual Console as well.

Yeah Smash Bros and the new Zelda will be nice to see, but those two games won't require me to sell a kidney just so I can buy them like Demon's Crest and MMX3 were before this wonderful news.

Mega Man X3! Be still my heart! I thought we would never see that game released on VC because of the difficulty emulating the extra chips that were included on that cartridge. This makes me so incredibly happy, because I never got a chance to fully experience this entry in the series. Will buy day 1, and I might go ahead and buy MMX2 just to complete the trilogy on my Wii U.

And this summer would have been the perfect time to release it, thanks to the World Cup. What a bummer. Oh well. I'll just play MMX3 instead.
