Mega Man X and Chrono Trigger Heading to Japanese VC

If you have been lacking some SNES classics in your gaming diet recently, you might be in luck soon. Japan just announced its Virtual Console line-up for the next month, detailing three titles; the NEOGEO title King of Monsters 2 and the SNES classics Chrono Trigger, and Mega Man X.

 

You would expect normal prices for these, no? 900 points for a NEOGEO title and 800 for SNES title. While that’s true for Mega Man X and King of Monsters 2, Square-Enix is charging a premium price of 900 points for Chrono Trigger. Not an unfamiliar price point, other than the fact it is usually reserved to import titles. Interesting to see Nintendo budge on that stance.

SEGA Announces Five Game Gear VC Titles

As we heard earlier this week at GDC, Nintendo will be offering platforms outside of Nintendo’s on the 3DS’ Virtual Console. Naturally, the Game Gear is one of them.

While these titles are only confirmed for Japan, we are probably likely to see all five hit North America. SEGA in their collection of titles has two starring the blue hedgehog: Sonic Drift 2, and Sonic Triple Trouble. Puzzle fans will appreciate Columns, and action adventure fans might wanna check out GG Shinobi. And last, but not least, Dragon Crystal: Shirani’s Maze.

Nintendo hasn’t detailed the pricing structure for the 3DS’ Virtual Console yet, so who knows how much the titles will cost. But this is a great opportunity for those of us who never picked up SEGA’s battery eating hand-held.

Final Fantasy VI Finally Heading to Virtual Console in Japan

It’s been a long time since Square-Enix announced that all the Final Fantasy titles would be heading to the Virtual Console. And the final 16-bit entry is hitting the service next month in Japan.

Unlike a lot of early Final Fantasy titles, Final Fantasy VI did get a US localization under the name Final Fantasy III. And with the Virtual Console staying relatively up to date in North America recently, we can probably expect to get it fairly soon after Japan.
