Nintendo! 3DS! VC! Games! Please! I can think of… Okay, there is nothing personally that I want right now but why is that stopping you from tempting me?

Wii U VC

Famicom Detective Club (Famicom Disk System): ¥514 (¥600 cart-only, ¥740 complete on Suruga-ya) Joy Mecha Fight (Famicom): ¥514 (¥690 cart-only, ¥1220 complete on Suruga-ya)

Good luck playing Famicom Detective Club on the FDS. Granted the GBA port is available, but there is no GBA screen I would be excited to play a game like this on. That tiny, tiny font. I do own this on Wii U VC so hey, cheap upgrade to GamePad emulation heaven for me! It is a joy of a game to play and I might even like it more than the sequel were it not for the fact that the Super Famicom remake of Famicom Detective Club 2 is pretty damn amazing.

In the realm of games not entirely based upon reading Japanese, Joy Mecha Fight is a, wait for it, joy of a fighting game with (gasp) mechs. It is worth playing around with if you can get your hands on it as it feels pretty advanced for a Famicom game and is not something you would particularly expect from Nintendo.
