    who thinks it might happen? lot of people say its not gonna happen cuz of the RARE being bought by Microsoft thing. if this WAS true, we would have never gotten the DKC trilogy on SNES VC. Donkey Kong is an official Nintendo character, and Microsoft owning Rare now should have nothing to do with it not being released.

    in my opinion and thoughts, i think it hasnt come out yet cuz of emulation issues and stuff and getting the emulation right for the VC. cuz this game DOES REQUIRE the expansion pack to play. that and the in-game arcade games (Original Donkey Kong and JetPac) also, if the game does come out, i think its gonna have a special release date like on what they did with Majora's Mask and Super Smash Bros.

    any other thoughts?

    DK64 is the follow-up of Donkey Kong Country 3 from SNES.

    I can tell Exactly what the problem is.

    Hello all this is my first post here. I actually signed up because I got sick of seeing the same debates all over the place about this. I figured I should set the record straight.

    Donkey Kong 64 runs extremely slow on the Wii when You can get it running. As I am sure We all really like the Wii it is under powered compared to the other current gen systems.

    A VC is only an emulator with a stock N64 rom placed in side the wad with special additional files for speed hacks to help the emulator run the game as fast as possible, or convert the language to a native one (for example in sin and punishment the rom is still in Japanese in side the VC).

    I have a n64 that is not in use, a legal purchased n64 DK64 cartridge and a legal way to load a free n64 emulator on to the Wii. It was test with the n64 boxed away and not in use and the cartridge sitting on the table in the room with Me, just in case any one gets nervous about copyright stuff. I also have the original expansion pack in the the n64.

    It takes minutes to load and runs at maybe 16 frames a second. For all intents and purposes not really playable.

    However if Nintendo has a way to do some serious speed hacking in the VC emulator they use then maybe it could be possible. I just don't see how they could pick up that much speed in the game. I have been working with cross platorm compatibility for years as well as emulators (only mentioned because that is what the vc is). So I know a thing or to about this.

    As far as power goes My original Xbox can run PS1 games at twice the speed of the Wii. That says a little something about the power of the system. Please do not get Me wrong the Wii is a great little gaming computer and I really like mine.

    My honest opinion is that they will never release DK64, unless they can get it to run at near full speed.

    Otherwise the public will have a negative opinion of the console and that will hurt public opinion and sales.

    As for Rare they state in public that they have no idea why it has not been released. After all Microsoft and there affiliates like money as much as any one else.

    Sorry if this post was little long, But I hope that answers every ones questions.

    The chances of it being released is low to be honest there are so many VC game requests to be released but so far little progress is made
    in my opinion i want Yoshi's Island on the VC

    iam actually happy i have an n64 with the DK64 cartridge

    To gtfunding

    You seem to know a lot about the computing behind gaming.... I do not.
    I however have been playing video games for over 25 years. I started with Atari and of course moved on to Nintendo and I just never grew out of gaming, it's a great stress reliever and I can think of a better way of spending a snowy cold winter Sunday! I even have a tattoo of the logo of my favorite game.
    My Question to you is simply, "If DK 64 is too fast to run on wii then how the hell did they get Mario 64 to do it??" They run on almost the same 3-D technology, they even had the same glitches, 3-d trees blocking ur view, 360 camera angles not smooth etc... I have played Mario 64 and I have noticed very little difference in what game play was like back on Nintendo 64...

    Just curious,
    Mia

    They might have looked the same but they really werent. DK required the n64 expansion pack for accelerated graphics and such. mario kart didnt. It would be really cool if they could release it though. What tatoo do you have thats interesting haha, i want a bombomb on my arm, that would be badass.

    look dude that GF w/e his name is guy doesn't know what he is talking about. What he was saying that if YOU mod your wii and get the Nintendo 64 emulator called Wii64 and run DK64 its gonna run like crap

    not because DK64 is impossible on the wii because thats total bullshit
    its just the wii64 emulator thats in a beta stage for wii homebrew

    in reality ANY N64 game is possible on the wii
    but remember this "money talks bullshit walks" and on top of all that RARE the company has gone to crap for many years now so the possibility of us getting DK64 as VC in the shop channel is 0

    Though i wish Conkers Bad Fur Day was available for VC but the company behind that was also RARE
