IGN: How about the original version, on Virtual Console?

Judd: That also couldn’t happen.

IGN: Why not?

Judd: I can’t say. Let’s just say this. If I’m making this, making the next gen one, we have a comic book on the community site, we’re doing pod casts — I’ve tried to hit every single angle I can, I’ve pushed this as a new franchise. If it’s not on the Virtual Console, you can bet there’s a reason for it.

IGN: Nintendo doesn’t like exploding heads?

Judd: I don’t think it’s exploding heads.
