    Yes! The most likely console to come to VC, is coming to VC! Sega have announced they're bringing Master System and Game Gear games to the Virtual Console. Japan will be getting Fist of the Northern Star and Fantasy Zone next month. No news on prices yet, but they'll presumably be around 500 points each.

    Here's hoping for Phantasy Star.

    Hopefully they include Great Baseball.. I loved that game. And since the Game Gear and the Master System have identical hardware inside, it should be no problem porting the games.

    Dude, it was a good system. Heck, it beat the NES here in Europe, so they must have done something right (admittedly it was partly down to the fact that Nintendo always treats Europe like crap, but still...).

    Already on there. Look for Dragon's Curse on the Turbografx, it's the same game with different music and slightly different graphics.

    Hmm...what about games that were released for both systems? I say games like Sonic should use the Master System versions...-WAIT A MINUTE! - If Game Gear is on the Virtual Console, then where the freak is Game Boy? What the freak is up with that?

    EDIT: Oh, I also meant to ask how much these would cost, but it was somehow excluded from this post...

    Golden Axe Warrior was an RPG for Gamegear. It's not the same as the Genesis Golden Axe co-op action games. Maybe I have the name wrong I'm not sure.

    Edit: I was wrong it was a Master System game. I'd still like to play it. It sounds cool. The game I played was on Gamegear and it is called Axe Battleer: A Legend of Golden Axe. What a cheesy name! lol

    Golvellius, I forgot about that one!

    :)

    I loved Rastan on master-system, it was like a CONAN game. But Rastan2 on Genesis sucked.

    Oh yes, I forgot about Zillion. There's another game I'll be checking out if it arrives (for those who don't know: it's like Metroid).

    Corrected.
