Dataminers Found More SNES Titles Possibly Coming to Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console

As I discussed with the March 2016 Nintendo Direct, Bill Trinen announced that SNES games will be coming for purchase for the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console exclusively for the new Nintendo 3DS XL. Dataminers searched the game files of Super Mario World on 3DS Virtual Console and found hints of other SNES titles that could be possibly coming to Virtual Console. The hacker, who goes as Normmatt, believes these titles will arrive to the Japanese Virtual Console, but is unaware which of these will come to North America or Europe.

The list of games that were found are listed below. I have bolded and written in red the titles which have already been announced for North America at the present time.

  • Super Mario World
  • Mario’s Super Picross
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Sim City
  • Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
  • F-Zero
  • Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack)
  • Pilotwings
  • Hercules III
  • Sutte Hakkun
  • Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • Street Fighter II
  • Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Secret of Mana
  • Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 2
  • Ganbare Goemon 4
  • Banshee’s Last Cry
  • R-Type III
  • Final Fight
  • Torneko’s Great Adventure: Mystery Dungeon
  • Gradius III
  • Populous
  • Otogirisou
  • Digital Devil Story
  • Shin Megami Tensei
  • Actraiser
  • Super Bomberman 3
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario Collection
  • Super Metroid
  • Mother 2
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Donkey Kong Country 2
  • Donkey Kong Country 3
  • Hajimari no Mori
  • Der Langrisser
  • Wrecking Crew 98
  • Mini Yonku Let’s & Go!! 2
  • Kirby’s Super Star Stacker
  • Power Soukoban
  • Picross NP Vol. 1
  • Picross NP Vol. 2
  • Picross NP Vol. 3
  • Picross NP Vol. 4
  • Shodai Nekketsu Kouha Kuniokun
  • Treasure Hunter G
  • Marvelous: Another Treasure Island
  • Glory of Heracles IV: Gift from the Gods
  • Super Wagan Land
  • Final Fantasy V
  • Final Fantasy VI
  • Clock Tower SFX
  • Dragon Quest 1+2
  • Dragon Quest 3
  • Kunio Kun no Nekketsu Soccer League
  • Majin Tensei
  • Majin Tensei II: Spiral Nemesis
  • Tsukikomori
  • Kyūyaku Megami Tensei

The thought that all these games will come out, especially in North America, is highly unlikely in my belief. I can foresee, as the hacker states, how the titles are believed to come to Japan; certain titles will be more attractive to Japanese consumers and are named under their Japanese title, such as Earthbound is titled under its Japanese name, Mother 2. But we can all hope, right?

What do you think?
