Nintendo Download: Virtual Console on the Wii U

Balloon Fight, The Cave, Super C

Today is an exciting day for the Wii U -- it's actually getting something new! Balloon Fight has hit the eShop for 30 cents, and it has full GamePad support and fully customizable controls.

Ok, so a 30 year old game re-release it isn't actually new, and the Wii U eShop still has no unique non-multiplatform releases since week one, but I'm just glad Nintendo broke the silence on the Wii U Virtual Console.

As for everything else, the Wii U eShop is getting The Cave, and a full Funky Barn download. The 3DS is getting Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker, a Brain Age: Concentration Training demo, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, and Super C.

I'll always remember Super C as the first game my wife and I played together, when we met many years ago.

If you missed last week's installment, here it is.

As for what I'm getting, I already have The Cave on PC, but I've already bought Balloon Fight (it works great!), and I'll be picking up Super C later for nostalgic purposes.
