Just yesterday we reported that Advance Wars will arrive on the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe next week, kicking off the entry of the Game Boy Advance onto the platform. Nintendo of Europe has now taken the chance to confirm the initial April launch line-up of titles coming to the region, providing a snazzy trailer in the process.

Below are the opening games — they'll all be priced £6.29 in the UK and €6.99 in Europe. As you can see, Nintendo is piling up the releases in the early weeks.


3rd April

10th April

17th April

24th April


Some of these titles will be familiar to 3DS Ambassadors — they were freebies in that 2011 compensation scheme — but will undoubtedly be new to plenty of new gamers. Nintendo of America hasn't made any equivalent announcements yet, but we'll keep our eyes peeled.

Check out the trailer below to see the GBA games in action on Wii U. Are you planning to download any of these in April?
