Still no Retro Catalogue/Virtual Console?

Aside from the NES catalogue that comes with Switch Online, where is the Retro Catalogue/Virtual Console? Come on Nintendo, you have such a great catalogue of older titles that could be on the Switch, and surely even GC era could be included now. What are they waiting on, if anything? Seems like a lot of money just sitting on the table.

I agree they are taking too long. Thankfully I have tons of games to play on switch. That being said I really wish I had some snes games to play on Switch.

Nintendo must hate money.

They're on other places, and for free. And it's not like you have to feel bad when Nintendo don't even let you buy their games.

They said in May that there isn’t going to be a Virtual Console. Their NESflix style service is probably all we are getting.

That is genuinely terrible news. Boo Nintendo.

Virtual console as it's currently known, isn't coming to the Switch. Reggie is quite good at misdirection. I think they will be re-branding it as something else, perhaps the online service/rental however you want to label it. In time individual titles will surely be able to be purchased. And yes, Nintendo has been unacceptably slow at rolling this out.

I don't understand why Nintendo thinks the stupid streaming service is a better idea, I think they've actually lost their minds.
