Nintendo has revealed that two fan-favourite Wii titles will be coming to the Wii U eShop next month.

Vanillaware's Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Atlus' Trauma Team (known as Hospital: 6 Doctors in Japan) are the titles in question, and will launch on August 19th for 2,700 Yen each.

"Muramasa: The Demon Blade and games of its ilk are increasingly rare beasts," is what our very own Jon Wahlgren said in his 2009 review of the game. "With its striking hand-painted art direction, fun combat and exploration, it's the type of game that brings solace to those who lament the death of 2D on consoles." From the same studio that gave us Princess Crown, Odin Sphere and Dragon's Crown, this is a title that is well worth a second look.

Sadly, we never reviewed Trauma Team when it launched back in 2010, but it received pretty positive reviews elsewhere on the web. It never got a release in Europe, sadly.

While it hasn't been confirmed, we'd hope that both of these games will see a worldwide release on the Wii U eShop. Are you keen to play them again, or perhaps you wish to experience them for the first time? Leave a comment below to tell us what you think.
