    You'll cope.

    It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

    let him be lol

    So that would be Super Mario Bros. 2 as in "The Lost Levels" as it was known outside Japan, right?

    No SNES games on the list either, which seems unusual considering the sheer amount of games on that thing. Many of them good ones at that.

    There's not much there that would interest me though.

    It was not even a Mario game to start off with, it was another game called Doki Doki Panic. LS

    No LS, you're thinking of our SMB2, i.e. SMB USA or indeed the other Nintendo game Doki Doki Panic, which was not seen fit for release as it was since it was a TV-show tie-in (or something like that).

    The real SMB2 is indeed what we know as The Lost Levels, and is the game hitting VC next month in Japan Smilie

    Right of course, silly me, the super hard released only in japan version, and not the one in this mould. LS

    Yes great news, really great news when you think about it, this will be special. Smilie

    Bingo, that's the one Smilie Nintendo reportedly thought the proper SMB2 would be too similar and far too tough for the Western world...and it was probably a wise move as the variety between SMB, SMB2 (USA) and SMB3 really helped the series' development in 'our' eyes more. That's what I reckon, anyway! Smilie

    Back on topic, strange indeed about the lack of SNES games. Makes me think Nintendo's working out something big for June. Perhaps more S-E content (not DQ/FF, as we now know from Hashimoto's recent interview).

    Well i recall from the last japanese list posted we have yet to Street Fighter 2 Turbo on the SNES, that's as big as they come, that has to be coming very soon now.

    This summer in particular may see some very big titles coming our way due to the Wii software release dates during these summer months.

    You can be sure Nintendo will release their VC games accordingly, and also pop in Miyamoto new extension to the Mii phenomena -Mii gallery. LS

    F Zero X (64) never played it so i am happy about that one.

    No Snes games...Seriously when the fuck are they gonna release Super Mario RPG?!?!

    HELL YES!!! CAN'T WAIT FOR F-ZERO X!!!!!!!!
