Nintendo announces Wii U Virtual Console launch lineup

Nintendo announces Wii U Virtual Console launch lineup photo



Nintendo has revealed the games North American Wii U users can look forward to when the Virtual Console officially launches and ... well ... it's not exactly overwhelming. In fact, here's the full library. Try not to strain your eyes with all the reading:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Excitebike
  • Ice Climber
  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Punch Out!!
  • F-Zero
  • Super Mario World

It'll hardly break the bank to obtain all eight, and many have already expressed disappointment. I do find it puzzling, I must admit. Nintendo has access to so many games, it's really not in danger of running out anytime soon. Why it persists with this drip-fed rationing of its releases, I do not know -- especially when the Wii U's hurting for some excitement. 

Still, Nintendo's gonna Nintendo.
