Since the moment we heard Nintendo will be introducing a new console years ago, the one feature that has been on everyone’s mind is ports of classic Nintendo games being available. Well, it’s not yet certain, but lately there has been talks of something happening with the GameCube.
In an interview with French outlet Melty, Nintendo producer Yoshiaki Koizumi stated that they are working on something similar to a GameCube Virtual Console; “We cannot give a concrete answer, because we have nothing to announce at the moment. But there’s something I can tell you: we are working on some things along those lines”.
As of now, this is by far the only news that’s related to Nintendo possibly having plans in bringing back games from past generation consoles. Nintendo have re-released some of their classic titles on the WiiU, for instance, just last year Super Mario 64 was released onto the WiiU commemorating its 20th Anniversary. In hindsight, we’ve already seen them bring back one game onto the Switch, and that’s Capcom’s Ultra Street Fighter II, so the imagination of countless games coming back onto the Switch is a strong possibility in my book.
Nintendo would automatically hit gold if they decide to bring in a new category of VCs, and even pricing the feature a mere $9.99 would suffice to the amount of content they’ll release. The thought of playing games like Super Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Bros Melee, Metroid Prime GC, Pikmin, and Star Fox—with online connectivity perhaps—makes the Switch’s future very promising.
