Nintendo Download: Yoshi's New Island

In Wii U news, Castlestorm has new DLC available and Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels has been added to the Virtual Console. That's it for Wii U news (sadface). Yoshi's New Island is the heavy hitter for the 3DS th...

Game Boy Advance coming this April to Virtual Console photo
Game Boy Advance coming this April to Virtual Console
by Dale North

We heard last year that Game Boy Advance titles would be coming to Virtual Console, and now Nintendo is just about ready to kick that program off. In today's Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata said that we would be seeing the first games launch this April on Virtual Console.

Metroid Fusion (NICE!), Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga, and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 will be among the first titles to hit the service. 

What else should they be pulling from the GBA library?

[Virtual Console Verdict is a short column that highlights some of the gems released on 3DS and Wii U eShop marketplaces. For a full list of Virtual Console releases, check out the weekly Nintendo Download series. Image source.]

This week, Nintendo updated their Club Nintendo digital offerings to add Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Although it's technically been a part of the Wii Virtual Console since 2008, many people wanted to know how it held up, and if it really was worth of the hype it's gotten from fans.

There's no two ways about it -- it's absolutely worth it. Legend of the Seven Stars is one of the most entertaining and innovative role-playing games ever made.
