    With Nintendo's current stance on game censorship and artistic expression, should we cross our fingers for long-awaited re-release of Hong Kong 97 on NSO?

    For information the Wii Shop Channel is not anymore accessible so hacked Wii's VC is quite legal in this case
    even Nintendo somewhen acknowledged that Wii hacking is an option now

    I question the point of making a whole new controller given that the Pro Controller has a d-pad, the same layout, and everything. Sure, maybe it will make it more "authentic," in as much as playing an emulation can be argued to be "authentic."

    And this is just one of the many benefits of emulation: using fan translations that DESTROY Ted Woosley's efforts!

    Cool, can't wait to buy the controllers and almost never use them like the NES ones.

    Some people like ted woolsey translations. I mean It doesn't make me any happier or excited to play the game or not, the game does. Playing chrono trigger on snes vs ds isn't debatable to me cause of how the script is, though I prefer the "not sounding like thor" script of the frog character but the quality of life changes is why I prefer the game. The names of some items being changed to be less common and more unique like Athenian water and such was also something to get used to.

    Still I prefer the game with the most working, less glitches and reworked script to play with. Just like playing final fantasy 4 on gba cause you can run vs the snes. Same for breath of fire on GBA. Auto dash feature and quick save helps the pace of the game, even if it has to sacrifice the graphics and sound quality. :ninja:

    Hoorra!!!! at least they will do it!!!
    hopefully it won't charge extra for those. But better don't push my luck, at least there's some WORTHY games to play, and I imagine it will be online multiplayer as well, so it's gonna be wild. Mario Kart either this next month, or the other.

    The pro controller doesn't have a real d-pad, no pivot and tons of false diagonals. Almost by design, as if you stick first party these Nintendo Online controllers are the only Switch wireless d-pad. (I say wireless because Switch Lite *might* have an actual pivoted d-pad, but we will have to see.)

    There's nothing there about BSnes. These traces actually pointed to Canoe, the emulator used in the SNES classic.

    This is going to be expensive knowing Nintendo.

    I can’t believe it’s taking them this long for SNES titles. Nintendo really needs to make their online “service” better. 2 NES games a month with P2P WiFi is unacceptable

    Honestly NES/SNES shouldve been the least important games...they shouldve started with GBA and N64 and a little later GCN. They couldve saved NES/SNES/GB for the end of the systems life.

    They should have started with dedicated servers for online play and nothing else
