Future VC Games List

I figured I should post the list of future game releases from Wikipedia. As with all things Wikipedia, take everything with a grain of salt, but it's still nice to take a peek.

Here's one crucial thing to notice - the "lost levels" edition of Super Mario Bros. Otherwise known as Super Mario Bros 2 on the Japanese Famicom. This is the first import release on the American Virtual Console. It's being released on NES, so it's the real game, not the SNES Mario All-Stars version.

Interesting that the American Super Mario 2 isn't scheduled for release. It was one of the launch titles for Gameboy Advance many moons ago. Perhaps Nintendo is treating Famicom Mario as a testing ground for future import releases. Successful sales would inspire them to continue with other import games.

Do you want to see other import games, like Sin and Punishment for N64? Then you better pick up The Lost Levels when it's released.

I'd love to see games from other systems, specifically Sega CD, NeoGeo and Arcade.
Great site, prevented me from a couple of dumb VC purchases.

We already have Mario Kart 64 in the UK! Gonna have to get me some points, me thinks.

As for other systems, the master System would be nice if the games were he same price as NES ones. Alex Kidd would be especially nice.
