"In the newest edition of Nintendo Power, a reader asked a very interesting question in the 'pulse' section of the magazine that fanboys would loved to be answered. The reader asked a question about the possibilities of Super Smash Bros. coming to the Virtual Console. The response from Nintendo Power was:
“Upcoming Virtual Console releases are a closely guarded secret, but consider this: Metroid went up right before the launch of Metroid Prime 3, and Super Mario Bros. 3 arrived just before Super Mario Galaxy. If the pattern holds up, there’s a decent chance that we’ll see the return of the original N64 Smash before Brawl arrives.”
I believe that Nintendo will continue the pattern because Super Smash Bros. is one of the best games in the world and I know that many people want it on there Wii so they can play it whenever they want! I know I would download the game right away if it releases for the Virtual Console."
I'm not exactly sure whether this is true, but I do agree with him.
