Things just don't seem to be working out between HM64 and the Virtual Console...
The Nintendo Wii's virtual console (VC) allows you to purchase classic video games right onto your Wii system. So far, the only Harvest Moon game to have been made available on the VC is the original "Harvest Moon" for the SNES.
The only other Harvest Moon game eligible to be released for the VC is a fan-favorite, Harvest Moon 64. Many have been anxiously awaiting the game's release on the VC. But in a recent interview with Nerdmentality.com, Natsume VP Graham Markay had some disappointing news:
NM: "We have some huge fans of Harvest Moon 64 on our website, and we are wondering if it will ever come out on Virtual Console?"
GM: "It will not. It will not. And it's not from lack of trying. Unfortunately, the code of the game is not... it's not an easy transfer. It would be really time-consuming and long, and we've looked into it, and we've tried to see if there's any way around certain things, but the conversion to virtual console, it's just... I shouldn't say it's never going to come out, but there's just a really, really, very small chance that it would ever come out. Which is unfortunate because we know that for a lot of dedicated, die-hard fans, that's their favorite."
