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:

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.
