Japan Getting Super Mario RPG for VC in June

Japan Getting Super Mario RPG for VC in June

by Steve CullumMay 30, 2008

Now even though some argue it is the greatest game of all time, I’ve got to admit that I’ve never played Super Mario RPG.  I know, I know!  But maybe I will soon get that chance again.  Many of you have been waiting for this game to be released on the Wii Virtual Console since launch day.  Well, if you are in Japan (or have a Japanese Wii), you will soon get to enjoy SMRPGLOTSS (wow, that’s long) again in all it’s glory.  According to sources, Nintendo will realease SMRPG for the VC in June for 900 Wii Points.  Although many of you are upset you are not Japanese, do not fret.  This should only add more hope to the day we get to experience it again in NA.  Until then, continue to wait patiently.  Our day will come soon!

    Well you know I’m getting tired of waiting for some games such as this to hit the VC in the US. I swear Nintendo better hurry up and do it because with all this news about the unmodded hack you can already play any SNES game you want so I hope that does not hurt Nintendo any when it comes to VC sales.
