Wii U Virtual Console Launch Lineup Is Revealed
Posted by Damien McFerran
Eight titles available at launch
Nintendo has revealed via its Wii U Facebook account the launch lineup for the Wii U Virtual Console.
The initial batch of games will be:
- Balloon Fight
- Kirby's Adventure
- Donkey Kong JR
- Ice climber
- Super Mario World
The Virtual Console sizzle reel which was released recently — and is shown below — also features Wrecking Crew, Yoshi's Cookie and Super Metroid, so you can expect to see those titles on the service in the not-too-distant future. Super Metroid is already confirmed as part of the Famicom Virtual Console Trial campaign, and will be available for a discount price shortly.
After rumours that the classic gaming service could go live earlier this week, it seems that we'll have to wait a few more days. At least we now know which titles will be available.
Are you pleased with the selection of games, or were you hoping for more? Post a comment to let us know what you think.
