« on: July 10, 2012, 02:36:06 AM »

The chances of that happening are not good. There are licensing obstacles to overcome as the game was made by Quest and not Hudson Soft. Moreover, many Turbografx games have actually dropped off the VC, not to mention Hudson was dissolved by Konami about 8 months ago...

SignofZeta: What a quintessentially PCEFX thread. Someone complains about nothing, multiple Bible-length posts discussing who's a bigger a$$hole follow. You're both pretty big a$$holes. Let's call it a tie.

Well, the game was developed by Quest who is now owned by SquareEnix, or at least their intellectual property would be. If they actually own the game is a mystery. Obviously Hudson is now owned by Konami, so if they owned the rights or partial rights, it would be a mess as well. Simply put, it's unlikely to show up on Virtual Console any time soon.

Doesn't really answer your question, but the PC Engine version of this game is a lot more affordable than the TG-16 version and just as good in my opinion.

Quest developed the game, but it may be owned by Palsoft or whoever published it.

Yep, tracking down the IP owner could be problematic. I think Micro cabin published the GBC version.

There are rumors that Magical Chase will be available on Wii U's Virtual U Console (VuC) when Nintendo releases the new hardware.

If I recall correctly, the game will cost approximately 19.5 Wii U VuCC (Virtual C Console Cubits) or "cubits" for short.

I thought it was only games by Data East & Irem that dropped off the VC?

Those were the only ones that dropped. However the fact that Konami hasn't been doing much with Hudson properties since the acquisition of them doesn't bode well for future releases.

The Wii is also five years into its product life, which is never a good time to hope for any new releases.

Maybe so for the Turbob VC, which was abandoned more than 2 years ago, but not for all of the VC systems.

I don't see this coming to the VC. Nintendo has clearly moved on to focus on the Wii U.

I assume it will get posted for about 30 minutes and then it will be realized that they put the game up without actually owning the rights.

Once Magical Chase is pulled from the VC, any Wii that holds the game will be worth $1,000.
