When is Nintendo going to put Majora's Mask on Virtual Console?

Seriously Nintendo. Majora's Mask is the one game I want on Virtual Console the most, so I wish you'd just hurry up and release it already.

I agree 100% with you, I want MM now! also DK 64 and SSB.

The N64 catalog last time I looked seemed kinda weak, I don't know how invested in it they really are.

When Nintendo grows some balls and starts re-appealing to their fans.

They seem to have kinda forgotten about the N64 on VC. They have like 5 N64 games on the service.

If you really want to play Majora's Mask on your Wii, you can buy The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition for Gamecube. Comes with Ocarina, Majora, and Zelda 1 & 2 all on the same disc.

Nintendo like to put special games on the VC usually after a game about the subject is coming out. So maybe around the time the next Legend Of Zelda comes out.

Hopefully soon along with Donkey Kong 64.

GameCube backwards compatibility and owning the LoZ:CE = the win!  The $15 or whatever it cost to subscribe to Nintendo Power and get this free was well worth it.  Especially when you consider how pricey the VC is.  But, given they've already written a GC compatible version, I have no idea why MM hasn't been released.  Then again, VC has been releasing crap right after crap lately.

There are a whole bunch of games that we all want on VC, personally I want Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, and DK 64. But until then we are just getting a whole bunch of Neogeo games, crap old games, and bad Wiiware games (WHERE IS STRONG BAD!?!?)

Well, thankfully I still have Majora's mask on the N64! : )

NEED this game on VC
.. any more N64 games in general. Haven't seen any new ones for a while now.

I need to play it too.

There's still hope. They just finally added Super Mario RPG. I'm sure Majora's Mask is on the way. I'm kind of shocked they didn't release Super Smash Bros on VC when SSBB came out.

Isn't it impossible for them to release N64 games that required that expansion pack for the console?  Maybe not, but I remember reading that's why MM hasn't been released yet.

Best. Game. Ever.

What? You bumped this almost 2 year old thread with that...even when it is on the VC now?

I didn't know it was released or this thread was 2 years old O_o It was on the top of the page so I wasn't sure.  That's incredible, I'll have to go get some wii points asap.

You need to check how old threads are...

I'll make a point of doing so in the future.  I wasn't aware this board was so dead, I didn't bother checking.  My bad.

Boards of a single game tend to be slower than the main one of the site.
