I would love to see Nintendo release more SNES VC titles for the 3DS. I want Kirby's Dreamland 3 and Super Mario RPG, which are probably being held back because of their special on board chips, but anyway!

once again, no real sale..

and this is getting ridiculous, the art of balance sale on PS4 is FAR greater than the 25% shin'en always do on nintendo platforms. please do not moan when you do not sell on nintendo consoles thanks.
