Nintendo updated their Virtual Console schedule and here is what is coming to Japan in May:


Coming out on May 1st:

Exerion (Famicom – 500 Points)

Super Mario Brothers 2 (aka Super Mario Brothers: The Lost Levels) (Famicom – 500 Points)

Neutopia (PC-Engine- 600 Points)


Coming out later in May:

Famicom / Nintendo (500 Points)


Tsuppari Oozumou


Nintendo 64 (1,000 Points)

F-Zero X


Mega Drive / Genesis (600 Points for most)

Bare Knuckle 2: Shitou no Chinkon Uta (aka Streets of Rage 2)

Chameleon Kid (aka Kid Chameleon in the US)

Shining in the Darkness (*700 Points)

Hybrid Front (*700 Points)


PC-Engine / TurbroGrafx-16 (600 Points)

Saigo no Nindou (Ninja Spirit)

Out Live

Sengoku Mahjong


PC Genjin 3 (aka Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure)

Battle Lode Runner

Air Zonk (delayed from last month’s release schedule)


The Japanese list gives a glimpse of what we might see in North America next month. Two weeks back Sega announced Streets of Rage 2, Kid Chameleon, Shining in the Darkness and Toe Jam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron for North America. Since Japan is seeing three of the announced games next month, it’s likely that North American Wii owners will have a chance to play Streets of Rage II and Shining in the Darkness in May too. There is only one Nintendo 64 game on the list and this month it’s F-Zero X. Nintendo has typically released the sole Nintendo 64 game to all regions, which means there is a fair chance F-Zero X will be coming to North America and Europe in May.
