...well, in Japan anyway. But it'll probably make its way over here sooner or later. Good news for anybody pining for the Woolsey translation or the ability to play it on the big screen, as God intended.

And Mega Man X!

Anyway this is pretty cool. Hopefully they'll release it on the US/Eur virtual console soon after.

About damn time!  :wink: the same for Megaman X. Now to wait for the american release. Both games are in the list of my favorite ones from the snes, now if they ever release Terranigma for the Virtual console(sigh, yeah right...) I would be the happiest wii owner ever.

Thumbs up for this!

Let's hope an official translation of Radical Dreamers follows suit!

(not that I'm dissatisfied with the super amazing fan translation)

Are they just going to keep re-releasing it in every way/shape/form? I mean... Chrono Cross hasn't been re-released several times. They need to take a hint and make another game.

I like to think that the fact that they keep re-releasing the games is a sign that they are still interested in the franchise, and thus in making new games, in near future. Maybe just a wishful thinking but...  :?

I'd rather buy this than the DS version, actually. Paying twenty-one dollars extra for new content that ties into a sequel that I immensely dislike is not worth it.

Still, I hope the VC version sells better than the DS port did.

I don't think it's a sign that they're still interested in the franchise. Heck, interest may not even be part of the equation. If anything, it looks more like they're pulling in as much profit from what already exists of the franchise.

If they truly were still interested in the franchise, wouldn't they show something more of it than just re-releasing the same game on a different console/port? If this were the case, then I could argue that Nintendo is still interested in the "Mother" franchise.

This isn't to say that I'm cynical about all this. I just wish they'd actually show a more obvious commitment to the franchise.

From the point of view of the producers profit=interest  :P but, yes... I guess it was just my wishful thinking, you know... the fact that the first port of Chrono Trigger (for PSX) was realeased the same year Chrono Cross was, that actually made me expect some news on Chrono Break the year they realesed the Ds port, but we weren't that lucky, sigh  :picardno I still have some hopes every time I hear of a new port.

I shouldn't buy it...

I have the snes cartridge, the psx remake and the DS remake.

...But I will probably buy it anyway !

If I had a Wii system I might have bought this Virtual Console copy as well. Thankfully I never had any interested in the Wii and this isn't going to make me want to buy one.
