One of the greatest features of the newer Nintendo consoles of the last couple of generations, has been their efforts to bring classic games from consoles such as the SNES and the Game Boy to their emulated platforms via the consoles app stores. However, after 9-years of doing so, it seems Nintendo are going to stop focusing on the much older formats, despite fans demanding more titles from them, in favour for the “newer” classic consoles.
@Hikarun___ There's no further SNES games coming from us. Nintendo has moved on to other classic systems.

Natsume said that Nintendo has moved on from publishing games from the original Game Boy and SNES, which is a shame, but also not especially surprising at the same time. With various Nintendo DS consoles, as well as their N64, Gamecube and Wii, there is certainly no shortage of Nintendo games to keep us happy, but even the 3DS virtual console hasn’t had any new releases since February.
Which classic Nintendo games would you like to see ported to the Wii U virtual console? Let’s us know in the comments section below.
