Nintendo has updated Collectible Badge Center to version 1.2.0 over in Japan. Today’s patch includes the latest general improvements, but a couple of features have been added as well.

First up are the Badge Cases. These items allow users to organize up to 1,000 badges into each case. Up to 100 cases are supported.

Aside from Badge Cases, Nintendo is also adding in a prize for Practice Mode. Players can now obtain a Free Play Practice Badge, whereas in the past it was only possible to nab a ticket that could be used for three free plays.

Natsume on the VC process, Pocky & Rocky SNES games unlikely, Medabots hope, no remakes

A new Q&A from Natsume sheds some light on things including the Virtual Console, Medabots, and remakes.

First up, here’s what was shared about the process of getting a game onto the Virtual Console:

The titles for Virtual Console are handled by Nintendo. The publisher and Nintendo discuss which classic titles would be a good fit and have the best potential to sell. Once a title is agreed upon, Nintendo and the publisher work together to bring that title to the designated system, with Nintendo doing the bulk of the work.

Speaking of the Virtual Console, another fan asked if we’ll ever see the two Pocky & Rocky SNES games (which would hit Wii U if they were to happen). Sadly, Natsume isn’t expecting any of the company’s other SNES games on the Virtual Console because “Nintendo’s interest has moved onto other classic systems.”

At this point, it’s unlikely we’ll see any other Natsume SNES games coming to the Virtual Console, as Nintendo’s interest has moved onto other classic systems.
