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.
