    Yes! Definitely one of their most demanded games. I haven't played it in far too long, but maybe in honour of this news, I'll start it again soon.

    edit: woo, first reply

    Yes! It's about time Super Mario RPG was released on VC! Now if only they could add Yoshi's Island...

    Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    With Super Mario RPG finally available, I now have a reason to buy a Nintendo Wii. Thank you, Nintendo.

    Any predictions for Virtual Console game #300?

    I'm going to make many people angry by saying this but.. I think Earthbound or Mother might be the 300th game.

    Mega Man 2? That's a very famous NES game, and it's supposed to be released on the VC before MM9.

    I like the idea of Mega Man 2. I would buy it just to play it on Normal (AKA the version I always played).

    In the end, Mario RPG was the only game I wanted on VC. They could release Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde and I would still be happy with the current lineup (I see 41 games I would like to download, not including titles I own/never heard of). But I wouldn't mind seeing titles like Final Fight 2, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Mario Kart, Illusion of Gaia, and Turtles in Time in the future. And I never played Earthbound so I'm not in a hurry to see it.

    I think (hope) they're saving Yoshi's Island or Majora's Mask for the 300th game. Earthbound isn't big enough to make the 300th game.

    Nothing special probably. I don't recall a celebration for game #200, so I suspect we won't get another special prize until game #500. Let's hope they don't purposely hold something back that long just so they have something special, as we won't get game #500 for two and a half years at their current pace. Plus, with the dwindling number of first party NES, SNES, N64, and Genesis games, they are running out of games to publish.

    Which is exactly why it wouldn't be #300, a number we won't reach until sometime early next year. I predict Mega Man 2 will be more like #254.

    Be careful who you say that to. I think it's the best RPG ever made, and I'm no where near as into it as some crazed fans. NoA reportedly got 2,000 calls over the weekend from an organized group calling for it to be released on VC; that's how into it they are.

    Well, I know about the whole community and whatnot, but I just don't think it would sell more than a Zelda or Mario/Yoshi title. Earthbound is one of my favorite games too, just check out my avatar.

    Since it was rated within the last few months, it'll probably show up before the 300th game. Or maybe after.

    I just wonder if they'll consider Mother, as it was completely translated but never released before.

    Well 300 isn't that long of a wait if they go back to releasing 3 games a week but even at 2 games a week that's not that much longer to wait for Earthbound.

    At any rate... SMRPG is mine at last.

    Would Nintendo still have the code to the localization? I know the prototype cart was sold on eBay years ago, but if they could retrieve the code, then they could put it on the VC.

    It's unlikely Nintendo would just trash all their localization work. Plus, there was surely more than one prototype cartridge. Even if all is lost, the fully translated version is easy to find (illegally) online for those looking for it. As the copyright holder, Nintendo could just download it legally. They'd probably have to strip out the text files and put them in a fresh copy from Japan (I've heard the rom dump is glitchy - one of the reasons I've never pursued it), but that's well worth the effort considering the possible sales and that's worst case scenario...

    Just got SMRPG. Tried to get that secret chest at the beginning and failed.

    Then I died at the crocodile boss and was sent back to the start of the game. Is he supposed to be able to kill me in two turns? (I've fought every enemy on the way to him, so I haven't been ignoring leveling up.)

    Eh it has its moments and its puzzle nature is unique, but its for the majority part a shallow game to some extent that isn't worth the 500 points of purchase. If ye have Animal Crossing on the GC you're better off trying to find it there and play it as such.

    The battle's a bit difficult, but TWO turns? What level were you at? :confused:

    Thanks. I usually ignore the defense option in rpgs.:sweat:

    Level... 2... 3? I dunno, lol. I might have exaggerated a little, but I still lost embarassingly quick.
