Nintendo Planning To “Enrich” Its Lineup Of Virtual Console Titles

Posted on Tuesday, November 5 @ 12:42:12 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Nintendo classics have been rolling out at an incredibly slow pace for Wii U and 3DS via Virtual Console. Fortunately there's reason to hope that the Big N's snail-like speed will be gaining some momentum in the near future.

Company president Satoru Iwata addressed the future of Virtual Console in a recent financial Q&A, admitting that "while Wii U and Nintendo 3DS already offer Virtual Console software, I feel that we have not been able to take full advantage of our assets yet, so we would like to enrich our Virtual Console lineup."

With regard to stepping further into the digital space, Iwata then went on to add, "As the ability to digitally offer our products has given us greater flexibility in offering new propositions to our consumers, we should naturally consider these possibilities in the future."

However, as far as smartphones and tablets are concerned, Nintendo has no intention of expanding its IP quite that far. "At the moment, however, we believe a more balanced approach would be to use our content to increase the value of our hardware as opposed to distributing it on smart devices, and therefore, we have no plans to release Nintendo content on smart devices."

Back me up, GR community. Isn't it about time GameCube games are added to Nintendo's online store?
