Europe gets Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire on Wii U this week


More where this came from, please

A new pinball game out of Nintendo sure would be delightful. The time is right (because the time is always right for well-made pinball spinoff games). I don't see that happening anytime soon, granted, but there's always Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire. The Game Boy Advance title will re-release on the Wii U Virtual Console on December 11 in Europe, reports Siliconera.

Presumably, it'll arrive on the eShop in North America not long after unless this is another one of those Fire Emblem situations in which case goodbye, see you in a few months.

While we wait, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge is on Virtual Console right now and it's so damn good. I do wish Nintendo had chosen the original Game Boy Color Pokémon Pinball over Ruby & Sapphire (or would just re-release both), but it makes sense given the recent Pokémon 3DS remakes.
