Nintendo has stated they will be releasing them until the end of this year. The NES classic comes back this Summer.

Is that something new? I don't remember it being promised the entire year, just well into it, perhaps overlapping with the NES unit which you know they'll pump out in large numbers to middle finger the scalpers through Christmas.

Only played a few hours on a ROM before, didn't have the physical release back when it came out.

Just finished the part with Frank at the arcade ... at first I wished the battle screens had more going on in them, but overall I'm into it. Definitely gonna spend a chunk of the weekend going through it.

My one recommendation is use the manual. It offers crucial information about the more cryptic items.. or at least use a guide on the items you are like, "What does this do!?" You will get a lot of that and it will reward you for sure!

Good looks on the advice -- it's definitely going to take me some time to learn the items and other nuances in the game. Using a guide from this website Thonky ... they only have a few RPG's on there but I also used their guide to help get through Secret of Mana.

Did Nintendo release official controllers to buy individually?
I haven't seen any and figured they didn't since the system comes with two. I ask since softmodded Wiis only works with licenced controllers not 3rd party ones.

VC games and Discs work, but any program that starts through the homebrew channel (usbloader, emulators, etc) will crash and not start. I have found a workaround for disc games loaded through usbloader - if you load the game first them plug in the controller it will work. That method does not work for the emulators though.

Not sure if you know but Nintendo actually uploaded a scanned version of the official Player's Guide.

I've been printing and binding a lot of these online manuals in mini book size! They look awesome.

The way Earthbound is setup that guide is a real life saver which I'm sure is why it came with the original cart instead of just a manual. I'm glad I've had that guide for years now but there's no denying that PDF is a lifesaver (and wallet too.)


For SOM I own this one too, but pop this into google: Secret Of Mana Official Strategy Players Guide pdf
First link should be on emuparadise, a very VERY helpful nicely made Prima guide for the SNES original (not remasters.)
Return to Nintendo
