    What's going to happen after all 26 of these games are released? We in NA, only need Mega Man X2&X3 and then all of the planned games are released. What about other games like Super Mario RPG and ActRaiser? Those two games get the least amount of releases and are the hardest to re-released compared to the basic ones like Super Mario World and F-Zero. It's a real shame, too because ActRaiser hasn't been re-released on the Virtual Console, outside the original Wii. Not even Japan has it, yet. I'm still waiting for more SNES games, like these:

    Super Mario All-Stars (This was released on the Wii as a disc, but that was a waste!)
    Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (There is the GBA version on the Wii U VC and 3DS Ambassadors)
    Star Fox
    Wario's Woods (Superior to the vanilla NES version)
    ActRaiser 2 (They took out the city building gameplay elements, boo!)
    Soul Blazer
    Illusion of Gaia
    Pac-in-Time (Better than the mediocre Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures)
    Ms. Pac-Man
    Super Bomberman
    Super Bomberman 2

    Let's also not forget the ones on the Wii and Wii U VC:

    Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars
    Kirby Super Star
    Kirby's Dream Land 3
    Kirby's Avalanche
    ActRasier
    Aero The Acrobat
    Aero The Acrobat 2
    Ogre Battle: March of The Black Queen
    Axelay
    Cybernator
    Demon's Crest
    Castlevania: Dracula X
    Gradius III
    Super R-Type
    R-Type III: The Third Lightning
    Duris Twin
    Metal Marines
    Pac-Attack
    Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures
    Harvest Moon
    Wild Guns
    Natsume Championship Wrestling
    Super Adventure Island
    Super Adventure Island II
    Super Bonk
    Genghis Khan II: Clan of The Gray Wolf
    Romance of The Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire
    Nobunaga's Ambition
    Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
    Vega Stakes
    Final Fantasy II
    Final Fantasy III
    Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest
    Chrono Trigger
    Secret of Mana
    Breath of Fire
    Breath of Fire II
    Super E.D.F.: Earth Defense Force
    The Ignition Factor
    Zombies Ate My Neighbors
    Ghoul Patrol
    Street Fighter II: The World Warrior
    Brawl Brother
    Rival Turf
    The Contributes
    Prince of Persia
    DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's Doki Doki Adventure

    I just got them and we still need the Mega Man X sequels, while EU still needs Super Castlevania IV and Super Ghouls'n Ghosts.

    Pretty much the only game that I want to see come to VC. It'll be perfect on N3DS.

    It sucks that we'll probably never get Tetris Attack since the assholes at Tetris don't want people using their trademark, other than Ubisoft!

    some games like "Super Mario RPG" will probably never be officially released on 3DS since they use special chips like "Super FX", which I think are more powerful than the SNES itself. given the current SNES VC games can lag already, these would just be unplayable.

    Then how the hell did Mega Man X2 and X3 get released? They used special chips, too!

    I actually manage to run SMRPG on my phone, about 2 years ago and beat it, without any lag whatsoever! Not only that, the sound effects weren't glitchy either and there were no graphical issues with the graphics, backgrounds, or layers. It played just like it did on the Wii and Wii U but on a small phone.

    well your phone's hardware is different than the New 3DS, and probably has better optimized emulators too. it's not a good comparison.

    Smartphones have like a PowerPC processor and the 3DS only has an ARM9 processor, right?

    you tell me, each phone is different. I don't think phones would be using PowerPC though.

    still doesn't really mean anything, different architectures/emulators/etc and things make it hard to compare your phone to 3DS.

    I think the NX will have a powerful enough processor to run SMRPG and KSS. They probably won't show up on the 3DS and the NX is just around the corner and is "rumored" to be a console/handheld hybrid but it hasn't been confirmed.

    Those 26 SNES games were only released, so they could tie us over until the NX comes out. I do think the NX will be a console/handheld hybrid since Nintendo is releasing DS VC games on the Wii U and SNES games on the N3DS.

    Gambia, The
    the thing with vc is, its a licensing nightmare when you go beyond original nintendo ips. and nintendo by now has a good measure of which games sold good on the wii, so they probably dont go for the bad selling ones at all

    You always inject as many SNES games as you want it n N3DS.
    Super Mario RPG is running good on N3DS.

    Both smartphones and 3DS use ARM derivative CPUs (with quite different performance), not PowerPC.

    I think he is saying PowerPC as it a RISC processor while ARM processors are also RISC.

    I'm sure someone tried to inject it. I wonder how that went.
