And its to spread out the money earned over a period of time. Wouldn't it be just as bad to get all the old games you wanted at once and then never get any new ones? Granted, most people spread their purchases out over a period of time, but there would still be some who buy all at once and complain later that its never updated.

I just downloaded F-Zero and when I went to play it, it said I needed the Classic Controller even though it says I can use the GC one. I'm so pissed b/c stores don't even have the classic one.

So when you were about to download it had the Classic controller icon and GC controller icon? Send an e-mail to Nintendo maybe they'll do something. Seems like a stupid ****up to have. I thought the GC controller was occasionally used on non-Nintendo consoles but could be used for the SNES.

That's strange. I've been playing it with a GC controller for the past few days.

What did you do when it said "You Will need the Classic Controller; Plug it into P1 Wii Remote or Press A to return to the Wii Menu" ?

SNES surprises for Virtual Console
Monday 11-Dec-2006 3:15 PM Super Probotector, Castlevania IV and R-Type bound for December UK release. Oh yes!

If you're as big a retro Nintendo fan as we are, December 29 can't come soon enough because a December release schedule for the Virtual Console on the Wii has revealed that Super NES classics Super Probotector: Aliens Rebels (AKA Super Contra) and Super Castlevania IV will be made available for download on that day in UK.

That's not the only surprise - the Turbografx version of R-Type will also be out on that day too, which is awesome. On December 15 Alien Crush, an amazing pinball game on the Turbografx will also hit the virtual console.

These games come as a pleasant surprise after Nintendo's initial December release list made no mention of these titles - which is particularly sweet in a era where we're more used to great games being delayed, not released unexpectedly.


Meanwhile, the US Virtual Console servers will be graced with Ice Hockey (NES), Gunstar Heroes (Mega Drive), Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (Mega Drive) and Alien Crush later today.

The full European Virtual Console release schedule for December 2006 is as follows:

Virtual Console games available from 15th December 2006:

Cool, thanks Slinger.

I tried to look up the updates this morning before work and nothing was there, so I figured it was later in the day.

You know, it's nice that the VC is being supported so heavily with Sega and Turbo Grafix 16 titles, but shouldn't it start being supported more heavily by Nintendo.

I mean we need some updates on the NES, SNES, and N64 aspects of the VC.

As a side note, I really am glad Sega is supporting it so heavily, because I adored the Genesis and the games it had on it.

Have those been submitted to the ERSB yet? When that's announced then you'll know to expect them.

Yes. All the games I list on my first post have been re-submitted to the ESRB.

Now that I finally got my classic controller they need to show the SNES and N64 love.

I hope something gets updated worthwhile today. Toe Jam & Earl would be very welcome....make sure you update please Spidey.

I'm at work, so I can't check myself.

Check the first post. 2007 is probably when you'll be playing the games you want.
