SEGA and Capcom continue their strong support for Nintendo’s digital eShop platform next week, with the simultaneous release of Sonic Advance and Mega Man & Bass on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console. Priced at 702 yen each, the 2001 and 2002 Game Boy Advance titles will be unleashed on 18th February.

Sonic Advance is recognised as one of the first main Sonic titles to be released on a Nintendo platform, and follows the blue blur and co as they travel through various zones to stop Dr. Eggman.

The title features four playable characters including Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy, with each character sporting their own unique moveset based on their appearances in existing Sonic titles. The Tiny Chao Garden is also included, where players can raise the much-loved cute and cuddly creatures.

Mega Man & Bass is a spin-off of the main series featuring a unique storyline, and was originally released exclusively in Japan in 1998 on the Super Famicom. In 2002, it was then ported across to the GBA and received a western release in the following year.

The action-platformer allows players to select between the two main characters while they attempt to stop an enemy known as King from creating an army of robots.

Let us know in the comments how much you would like to see these two likable games from the GBA era make it across the west for a local release on the Wii U eShop in the near future.
