Time to Power Up Your Wii U: Nintendo adds Game Boy Advance titles to it Virtual Console

As promised, today Nintendo is finally bringing classic Game Boy Advance game downloads to the Wii U’ s virtual console. And the company is kicking off the service with a bang, releasing a trio of excellent games with Metroid Fusion, Advance Wars, and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. The games will run you $7.99 each, and you can play them either on your TV or on the console’s tablet-like Gamepad controller. New GBA games will be added to the service every week in April, with classics like WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames! and Golden Sun slated to launch in the coming weeks. It might not be quite the shot in the arm the Wii U needs, but these classics should at least hold you over until Mario Kart 8 launches next month. – The Verge

Good move by Nintendo. Should have been done months ago, but good move. Can’t wait for Mario Kart 8, so until then Metroid Fusion will hold me over.

  1. I just saw the Mario Kart 8 footage today too. I’m going to have to figure out a way to get one of these now.
