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...

Nintendo Download: NES Open Tournament Golf

The Wii U isn't getting much today, as the headliner is NES Open Tournament Golf for the Virtual Console. If you've paying attention, this is one of the inclusions in NES Remix 2, so expect all of those listed games to m...

Nintendo Download: Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

It's another big week for the 3DS, and another small one for the Wii U. On the Wii U side, we have My Farm, Renegade (Virtual Console), and Knytt Underground has a sale, bringing it down to $6.50. Not a whole lot on...

The big release this week is clearly Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which is hitting the Wii U this Friday both digitally and by way of retail. That's about the only real release on Wii U this week though, as the only ...

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?

Nintendo Download: Super C

It's another slow week for both eShop fronts, as the only "new" addition to the Wii U's marketplace is the Virtual Console game Super C. Spin the Bottle was released some time ago on the Wii U, but today brings a fairly ...

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.

Nintendo Download: Zelda: A Link to the Past

Today is a bit more lively than last week's Nintendo Download, as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is hitting the Wii U. This is my favorite Zelda of all time, and I've played every single game. The Wii U eShop is...

Nintendo Download: Mighty Bomb Jack

Today's Nintendo Download is yet another odd slow burn of the Virtual Console variety, with Mighty Bomb Jack hitting the Wii U. That's literally it for the Wii U. On the 3DS, Life Force is out -- that's the only new release for the 3DS. Exciting! As far as sales go, Fractured Soul is down to $5.99 until February 6th, Shin Megami Tensei IV is $29.99 until February 3rd, and Project X Zone is $20.

On the Wii U this week you can grab Gradius and Cocoto Magic Circus 2. That's it. Seriously, that's it! Yet again, Super Mario Bros. 3 is missing. It's not a lost cause though, as Gradius may not be the be...
