Zelda GBA

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is not only an excellent portable entry in the series, but is also interesting for the fact that Capcom was primarily responsible for its development. Just this week we shared the happy news a game page listing had popped up for a Wii U Virtual Console release in North America — a benefit of the Game Boy Advance library coming to the home console — with a 'TBC' release window. It seems Nintendo of Europe has gone one better, announcing that it'll hit the region on 29th May.

Confirmed on the official Wii U UK Facebook page, we now know that it's less than a week away in the region. A title that sits near the beginning of the Zelda timeline, if that sort of thing bothers you, it features the coolest 'hat' Link's arguably ever had and is full of clever ideas. We were certainly fans when it popped up in the 3DS Ambassador Programme.

Are any of you European Wii U owners planning to pick this up next week?
