GBA Titles Coming to Wii U VC

That’s a lot of random-looking letters in the title… but you get it, right? In the Nintendo Direct broadcast yesterday, it was announced that Game Boy Advance titles will begin heading to the Wii U Virtual Console this April.

We’ve been waiting for a firm date from Nintendo on this for awhile, but the first three titles are coming in April—specific dates notwithstanding. We’ll see:

  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
  • Metroid Fusion
  • Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island

These are likely welcome arrivals to the Virtual Console service, all three titles being well-loved games from the days of GBA.

That said, we’re thinking it might be in our best interest to play these on the GamePad instead of a large-screen TV, considering their small-screen origins.

These high-profile first offerings for the GBA games is hopefully indication of the titles to come in the future.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
