Is there a method to the e-shops Gameboy Releases

#1shinjix2Posted 7/7/2011 5:38:04 AM
I heard its by the games original release dates. Can anyone confirm this?

More importantly when will that mean Metroid II and Six Golden Coins will probably come out?

Here's a list of Game Boy and Game Boy Color releases, and the original release dates (although I'm European, I'm going to use the North American dates since most people here are probably from that region):
Game Boy
Alleyway (August 1989)
Radar Mission (February 1991)
Super Mario Land (August 1989)
Donkey Kong (June 1994)
Tennis (August 1989)
Kirby's Dream Land (August 1992)
Fortified Zone (September 1991)
Qix (May 1990)

Game Boy Color
Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (December 1998)

Yeah, so I'm pretty sure they're not in order of release dates but more in some kind of "Whatever random obscure no-one-cares-about not-actually-worth-it non-first-party piece of freaking god damned give us ONE more freaking Mario or other first party game that Nintendo feels like adding" order

Thanks for that info. I guess (Maybe) the best part of that is we won't have to wait forever for late release games like Donkey Kong Land or the Zelda Oracle games!

Why? What part of what I said indicates that we won't have to wait until 2019 until we see Donkey Kong Land for example?

I remember seeing an article about the makers of Shantae pushing to get it on the VC.

So fingers crossed.

They throw darts at a board and whatever it hits they release.

If a VC release date isn't determined by the order of which it was released on the Gameboy, the there is a greater CHANCE that it will show up sooner than later.

Hence the "(maybe)"

While it could still not be released for years from now. It isn't determined by some law that states that all these other games must be released first.....

While your reply helped me DETERMINE this idea of thought it wasn't anything you SAID that landed me there.
