Here's the story so far


Nintendo UK just announced some new Wii U Virtual Console games, set to hit the system soon with all of the usual GamePad upgrades in tow. In the near future, UK gamers will be getting Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Super Mario Bros., Pac-Man, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Mega Man, Xevious, Balloon Fight, and Street Fighter II.

My guess is everything will drop in the next few weeks or so, at which point Nintendo will start to tease more titles. While I wish the rate of distribution could be a lot faster, I guess this is better than nothing. Keep at it, Nintendo!

Here's everything that's planned so far for the Wii U Virtual Console:

  • Super Mario World
  • Ice Climber
  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Balloon Fight
  • Earthbound
  • Spelunker
  • Excitebike
  • Punch Out!!
  • F-Zero
  • Mega Man X
  • Ghosts 'n' Goblins
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby's Dream Land 3
  • Wrecking Crew
  • Kirby's Dream Course
  • Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Pac-Man
  • Donkey Kong*
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man
  • Xevious
  • Kirby's Adventure*
  • Balloon Fight
  • Street Fighter II
  • Super Metroid*
  • Yoshi*

Here are all the upgrades you get:

  • GamePad Remote/Off-TV play
  • Customizable controls
  • Miiverse support
  • Restore points (save/load state)
  • 1080p resolution with a 4:3 ratio (black bars)
  • Upgraded 60 Hz rate from 50Hz for PAL territories for select games

Here are the prices:

  • $4.99 for NES games
  • $7.99 for SNES games
  • $1.00 upgrade fee for NES games already owned on the Wii
  • $1.50 upgrade fee for SNES games already owned on the Wii

* - Will be offered at a promotional $0.30 price for a limited time
