Don't expect Majora's Mask any time soon, if AT ALL! Same goes for Donkey Kong 64!

    That's right!

    I keep seeing people wondering where Majora's Mask is, yet anyone with brains needs to remember the fact that the Virtual Console N64 titles have no compatibility with the Expansion Pack! That means DK64, MM, and a lot of extra features in other games!

    We can always pray that they add Expansion Pack compatibility in the future...

    I guess the same would go for Controller Pack compatibility...

    *looks at Castlevania*

    I already asked about that. If Nintendo can host Neo Geo, that expansion pack isn't even an issue. Don't worry, we'll see Majora's Mask eventually. Keep an eye out for Castlevania 3, I'm pretty sure after that they'll launch Castlevania 64. The question is what version? Castlevania 64 has two different versions. The newer version has extra features and characters.

    XD375, you needn't worry about it. The Wii is quite capable of handling the memory space the Expansion Pack provided.

    Why would we care about Donkey Kong 64??

    It was one of the worst platformers when it came out, and it certainly hasn't aged well.

    Omg, quit compairing the Wii to the inferior PS3. I have downloaded multiple VC games, and played multiple GC games on the Wii. It handles them perfectly. Opinions aren't facts.

    I played Majora's Mask on my wii. I have the special edition game cube zelda disk with both N64 zelda's and the original NES one. Majora's Mask is not a port, but a rom being emulated by software for it. So I'm sure if make it run on the game cube then they can do it for the virtual console.

    Maybe the emulation software that runs it became the software for the N64 games in the virtual console.

    If you wanted it that bad maybe you should have got the disk that I got. I think there was like 5 ways to get one for free.

    Are you kidding. That was one of my favorite games. I still play it today. It wasnt as good as SM64 but was still freakin fun.

    Mushroomedmario agrees! I love that game. Might start a thread about it in the retro frum later.

    If they can make a disc where you can play it on the gamecube, ofc they can make it work on the wii.

    Nice reasoning.

    It was just another generic 3D platformer with pointless collectathons and beyond basic level design. I have nothing against RARE or Donkey Kong, I just hate crappy games.

    I'd imagine most of you were about 4 when you played it for the first time so that might be why you thought it was so good. To you basically anything with Donkey Kong in the title meant good.

    Hell, when I was 4 I liked a couple of crappy games because I wasn't exposed to most games out there and I only like them now for nostalgia reasons, if even that.

    They have a pretty big N64 catalogue to work from so i guess taking the extra time to add expansion pack games wont be a priority for a while, plus they havent even added N64 rumble support yet.

    More important than DK64 though is Rogue Squadron, even though i think it was playable without the expansion pack i would rather have a version that was using it.

    well i just played it last year(At age 16,) and still thought it to be excellent...

    i and a lot of reviewers seem to disagree with you, so you don't hate crappy games, you hate games that you think are crappy,

    The expansion pack was because the N64 had very little memory to hold a game so large, technology has moved on a bit since the N64 ;)
