NOA Responds to 3DS VC Release Drought
Why has it been almost two months since North America has recieved a 3DS VC game?
Many of our North American readers may be aware that there have not been any 3DS VC releases on the eShop in almost two months. Considering that Nintendo has been trying to encourage people that they are improving their online setup, it seems odd that Japan and Europe have been getting titles but not North America.
NOA has made a statement about the state of its 3DS VC releases, which unfortunately seems to be a little bit of an avoidant answer.
“Each week Nintendo makes available a mix of Nintendo eShop, Virtual Console, WiiWare and Nintendo DSiWare games. Combined, these services currently provide gamers with hundreds of fun and interesting downloadable games to choose from. There is no preset schedule as to how many games will become available in a given week, but many more are on the way via all of these digital-delivery systems.”
Their defence seems to boil down to the argument that their online services already have lots of titles, so they don’t need to worry to much about consistent new releases.
North America’s 3DS VC drought will be ending Thursday when Kirby’s Block Ball releases.
