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
Donkey Kong Jr.
Mega Man X
Ghosts 'n' Goblins
Kirby Super Star
Kirby's Dream Land 3
Kirby's Dream Course
Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Super Mario Bros.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Street Fighter II
Here are all the upgrades you get:
GamePad Remote/Off-TV play
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
