On the Wii U virtual console?

Tewi-Inaba1965d ago

No, 3DS. You didn't say anything about console...
you specifically said JRPG

TheEvilWithin1965d ago

oh sorry meant the Wii U virtual Console lol My bad... They got Secret of mana and FF3 (North America number) I think. I want those and Earthbound really really bad.

It's still easiest to call it FF6.

In terms of Virtual Console releases, I was looking at this last night. And, with the exception of Earthbound, most every game that's been in all 3 regions' Wii VCs has been brought to the Wii U VC within 1-2 weeks of it's initial release.

I.E. Super Mario World released in the Japanese WiiU VC one week prior to its release in the North American WiiU VC.

The exception is Earthbound, which -may- be an "exception to the rule" due to the fact that, unlike the games I examined, it isn't simply being ported from one VC to another, but being introduced to the North American/European eShops for the first time.


So, with that in mind, I think it very likely (though not completely certain) that we'll see Final Fantasy 6 and Secret of Mana hit the eShop in North America either next week, or the week after.

Great observation, plus both games would make a great addition to the VC for the Summer vacation.

Could of sworn we were supposed to get Pilot Wings this week and what's with D & D pulling another no show on eshop. I might have to just buy it on the PS3 since Nintendo can't seem to get their act together. Smh

Pilotwings was never confirmed for release this week. did display a June 27 release date, but it has been changed to next week. It could come next week, but we won't know for sure until the Nintendo Download press release makes its rounds.

I know this will sound silly, and it does, but - despite it being an official source - has never been 100% correct with eShop/VC release dates. That is, until Thursday's Nintendo Download is made available.
