    Nintendo's revamped games catalogue on its website is nothing new as it allows you to search for games and purchase them there. However still as of right now, when you visit the games page you can see 4 incomplete listings of Gamecube games. The games are as follows:

    - The Chronicles of Narnia
    - Doshin the Giant
    - Sonic Adventure DX
    - Tony Hawk's Underground 2

    All listings show a TBD release date and unknown platform. This opened up speculation among fans about a potential Gamecube Virtual Console service on Switch. Of course it may as well be a simple database error from a recent maintenance.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    It's 90% likely to be an error. Why would there be no Mario game? Kart could probably not happen (30% chance), Sunshine could not happen (40% chance), but Party would definitely be there.

    I'd Highly doubt that those four games would be on the hypothetical Switch VC, especially before games like Super Mario Sunshine and. Super Smash Bros. Melee.
    The only one of those 4 that I could see coming to Switch is Sonic Adventure DX, but again probably not before some of Nintendo's own games.

    Wait just a gosh darn minute. It just dawned on me.
    I am sorry Nintendo, I did not mean to call you out if we're getting a Chao Garden on the Switch.

    My bad amigos, no disrespect here.

    I don't know what to make of this. It seems real enough, I don't see how they could have mistakenly added those games to the Switch catalogue if they have no intention of ever releasing them for Switch. Though I doubt their intention was to leak the news that GameCube VC is coming to Switch, if it's listed on the official site, I can't really cry "hoax" or "fake".
    But that's a really odd choice of games.
    I can't really think of any good reason why they would pick those 4 games specifically. Maybe they're the only 4 games that work perfectly in their in-house GC emulator right now? That's the only thing I can think of, but it still seems a bit far-fetched.
    It might be that those 4 games are just a test of their GC emulator, and they have been able to get them working well and secure the licenses for their re-release. If they are indeed coming, I doubt they'll be the first GameCube VC we see, they might just have been the first ones to be confirmed fully working and with the necessary licenses secured.

    @WiiUBricker There's a typo in "underfround" by the way, might want to fix that if you want this frontpaged ;)

    Agreed, though I was never a huge fan of the GC controller, if GameCube VC is indeed coming this would be the best way to play them.
    The only thing I don't like is that the buttons are at the wrong angle. It might not affect use but I feel like it would throw me off since I'm used to playing GC games with a real GC controller.

    Notice that while the other three say "undefined" under "type," Doshin the Giant actually has GameCube written there

    The just when you thought the mentally addled dog controller couldn't look worse.

    I hope this happens but I would rest easier know that I could purchase VC games on the switch...

    They can always add it later.
    Hm... There's that Kirby racing game right? I would love to play it on my future Switch.

    still i don't know about half of the games here
    i hope they won't just release a vc port, and they'll actually make a port with all of the wishes of melee players for a perfect version of the game (standart rules being the competitive rules, fixing unquestionable unfair banned glitched like the freezing glitch, gcc support, and maybe even nintendo hosting their own shit)

    Horrible idea. Melee purists will want the pure game experience, and even then I doubt they'd even bother with a Switch VC version, since it'll never be the original Melee.
    I just can't get behind a Melee HD or Melee VC. Really, unless you were playing it competitively, it wasn't all that great a game. While Brawl was horrible for competitive play, it clearly outshines Melee as a casual experience, and Smash 4 is the better game to introduce new fans to the series. It just doesn't have a place in my opinion.

    no shit. and sf5 is the best game for casuals, isn't it? still supported by capcom
    i don't say they need to make their new entry of the series just melee. they need to release it alongside a new smash.
    and just lately melee players have been discussing memory card mods to make inconsistent techniques on most of the controllers out there, consistent on all of the controllers. melee starts to change, and if nintendo actually listen to the fans once, they can do the same like capcom imo
    im from the melee community so i know the shit im talking about. TODAY, the 20XXTE mod programmer released a new mem card mod and will be used in the next major, shine 2017, in all setups.
