Japanese VC Gets MSX, NeoGeo, and Ocarina
« on: February 22, 2007, 07:43:36 PM »
Nintendo announces MSX and NeoGeo support on the virtual console.

Japanese Virtual Console lovers have quite a month ahead of them. The final Tuesday in February sees the release of the much-vaunted Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and March doesn’t look so bad either, even in the shadow of Zelda. Fondly remembered games like Excitebike, ActRaiser, and Ganbare Goemon fill the Japanese release schedule. In addition to these titles, Nintendo announced that MSX and NeoGeo games would be appearing in spring and summer respectively. Only two titles were listed, Eggy and Aleste for the MSX at 800 Wii points apiece. No games were listed for the NeoGeo.    


March Japanese virtual console games:    


NES:    


Lode Runner
 Yoshi no Tamago (Yoshi/Mario & Yoshi)
 Valkyrie no Bouken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu
 Excitebike
 Donkey Kong Jr. no Sansuu Asobi (Donkey Kong Jr. Math)    


SNES:    


Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyuushutsu Emaki (Legend of the Mystical Ninja)
 Heracles no Eikou 3
 ActRaiser    


Genesis:    


Puzzle & Action: Tant-R
 Sonic Spinball
 Dyna Brothers
 Wonder Boy V: Monster World III
 Virtua Fighter 2
 Alex Kidd Tenkuu Ma Jou (Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle)
 Alien Storm    


Turbo-Grafx 16:    


Double Dungeons
 Fire Pro Wrestling Combination Tag
 Galaga '88
 Kaizou Chounin: Shubibinnman (Shockman)

It was a sprite based remake for the Genesis.

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Ha, I love how the japanese spelling of Hercules/Heracles doesn't allow you to tell whether it's the Greek or Roman name...

The final Tuesday in February sees the release of the much-vaunted Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Wait, this means Europe is actually the first territory to get OOT?

Warukyuure no Bouken

I wonder what that's about (if it is what I think), I know Namco makes loads of cameos with that game, e.g. the third costume for Cassandra in Soul Calibur 2 and inclusion into practically any figure collection for Namco games.

"DK Jr. Math? Will people actually pay for that?"

Well it's kind of a non-game isn't it?  Maybe Brain Age fans will dig it.

I hope Neo-Geo supports makes it to North America.  I can understand if MSX stays in Japan because it was only available in Japan but Neo-Geo should be available here.  Plus it's good to see new systems being supported.  That means that someday Master System or Gameboy games could be available.

I haven't bought a VC game yet, but Actraiser and Mystical Ninja are both on the list when I do.

NAMCOT?

The Turbografx games were released in Europe, MSX games could be released in other regions, too.

It's way to early for so much Zelda.

Totally confirms Nintendo is having a drought, and that TP is performing below their expectations.

NEO GEO! w00t w00t!

They have to release Neo Geo support here. They have to. All has to to do is go to Japan and make them do it.

If there is any indication though, they'll release their first round of forgettable (read:Crappy) games. But once Samurai Shodown and the rest show up, its on motha $$%##, its on.

yay, Neo Geo games!

let's hope they release the KOF and Garou series soon... (I'd ask for Metal Slug, but those have been released already ^^)

anyways, arcade goodness! (I wish Capcom would follow suit...)

Now am I correct in understanding that te only thing that prevents us from downloading other regions Virtual console games is the region of the unit itself?  Does this mean that if I buy a second Wii from japan then I can download Neo Geo games?  Or would I not be able to use my credit card to buy points off of it?
To err is human but to really F@*K things up takes Sony.
