Online Classics Virtual Console. My body is ready.

On the 3DS Nintendo makes a 3D classics series where they remake an old classic game that utilizes the 3DS' 3d graphic effect! This is neat but this is evidence that Nintendo has the resources to have a studio that works on revitalizing old titles to take advantage of their new technologies.

Now what if they devoted a studio that developed some old titles to have online multiplayer modes?

Call it: Online Classics.

I for one am a Balloon Fight master and would love to go head to head online with other people. Co-op or VS. The options can be implemented!

What retro classics would you enjoy seeing revitalized with online features? Or do you think this would be a terrible idea?

Why would they have to call them "Online Classics"? Just patch in online multiplayer and keep calling them what they've been calling them, Virtual Console games. There's no reason to need to spend time and money to market them as "Online Classics".

Yeah, I agree. Every virtual console game should just support this.

This, it would be far too costly to try and rework a ton of games like that. Though it might give Nintendo some advantages over other VC titles.

The 3D classics aren't the original games at the code level. They are remakes.

Other than attempting to make a sort of "netplay" that many emulators have done (which is built into the emulator, not the games), they would have to remake the games to implement online.

It really shouldn't. Almost all emulators allow online play. They don't do this by individually modifying the code for each game, just the way the emulator itself operates.

It's like when Nintendo added restore points, for example.

Too much money, not enough return if they did that.

Well if they charged a bit extra then it would have return.
