Okay, where the heck is Final Fantasy III!? Me, my friend, my brother, and my girlfriend were all looking forward to this coming out today (it being the Monday after Europe's release). Freakin' Square!

Yeah that sucks Although I already have it on the GBA, the SNES is still the definitive version to me right now. I wonder if we can expect a remake ala Final Fantasy IV, perhaps on the 3DS?

I think we'll get the VC version soon. I hope it's not next week though...3DS and three games on top of that? I can't handle all the games!

I think wrestling fans should check out Natsume Championship Wrestling, I remember renting it and it was pretty good, though I preferred the WWF games.

Hmm, kinda odd that a wrestling game was added, when we're still awaiting the release of the rest of the Castlevania, Contra, Final Fantasy and Splatterhouse franchises.

Ah well.

Your first mistake was to expect it for today just because it came out in Europe. Doesn't work that way!

I'm buying this game because of you TB! ...that is ..if it releases before the end of the next Super Moon....

Is it part of the Fire Pro series? Those always looked cool.

Still interested in the GG series, still haven't tried any.

Not that I know of, but it probably has some in common.

Games often come out weeks ahead of time in Europe. You should learn never to expect a game to release on the Virtual Console

Hey, what do you know, a demo for Dive: The Medes Islands Secret. Based on Paleo and Pandareus' reviews, I'm not terribly interested in the game, but a free demo is always cool to check out.

It will be nice to see more demos on a continuing basis. Yet I'm still highly perplexed by the fact that demos are taken off the Shop Channel after a certain time.
