Final Fantasy V Set For Virtual Console

Nintendo shares its tiny January retro lineup.


The January Virtual Console lineup is small as usual, but there are some major classics on the way.

Here's the lineup, as shared today at the Virtual Console lineup page.

  • Super E.D.F. Earth Defense Force (Super Famicom, Jaleco, 800 WiiPoints)
  • Final Fantasy V (Super Famicom, Square Enix, 800WP)
  • World Heroes Perfect (NeoGeo, D4 Enterprise, 900WP)

These are all date TBA in January.

The "Earth Defense Force" in the lineup is a horizontal arcade shooter that originates as an arcade game. It shouldn't be confused with the modern Earth Defense Force series from D3 Publisher (which is getting four new entries).

As always, the Virtual Console lineup often sees additional announcements throughout the course of the month, usually for the Virtual Console Arcade platform. Each week's lineup is announced the prior Friday, so check the lineup page (and the andriasang.com release calendar, which will hopefully be updated soon) regularly.
