Add two more NES classics to the Wii U Virtual Console library.

While you can download Luigi's New Super Luigi U Downloadable Content (DLC) from the Wii U eShop starting today, big brother Mario also makes an appearance in the eShop; in a much more subtle tone, however.

Originally released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1983, Mario Bros. is available starting today from the Wii U eShop as a Virtual Console title. You can also download the 1985 NES classic Wrecking Crew as one of this week's Wii U Virtual Console titles. Each of these titles cost $4.99.

If you've already purchased these titles from the Wii Virtual Console service, they can be transferred to your Wii U, where you can play them in Wii Mode at no charge. If you wish to use each game's integrated Miiverse and Wii U functionality, however, you'll need to pay a small upgrade fee. Upgrade fees for NES titles are $1.00 while SNES titles are $1.50.

Lastly, don't forget to check out the Mario Bros. and Wrecking Crew Miiverse communities, which have just recently been opened.

The more VC the better but I will not be picking these up. Also, I think I will wait a week for the Luigi DLC since I am hoping to pick up Game & Wario Sunday!
I already got New Super Luigi U. Also, I have the Wii version of Mario Bros. So that means I will get a sale on Mario Bros if I buy it in my Wii U. I must get Mario Bros now.

I have Game and Wario through. Got them almost on the same day. New Super Luigi U I got the day after I got Game and Wario.
