Nintendo Reveals Wii U Virtual Console Launch Titles

By Kevin on Apr 23 2013 04:23 PM
Nintendo of America have just revealed the Wii U Virtual Console launch title lineup via their official Facebook page. There aren't any surprises that weren't already shown during last week's Nintendo 3DS Direct but it's nice to be able to see an official list. Six Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games and two Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) games make up the list.

Each Wii U Virtual Console title will have their own dedicated Miiverse Community in which you can post in-game screenshots and personalized messages with other players. Official prices have yet to be revealed for each of the games. The Wii U Virtual Console service is expected to go live later this week, following the big Wii U Spring System Update.

NES: SNES: Are you happy with the launch lineup? Do you plan on purchasing any of Nintendo's classic digital content?

I think it's a fine list. Granted most are already on the special Anniversary Program, but Super Mario World, Excitebike are good enough for week one. I'm probably gonna get both. Super Mario World for sure. I love Excitebike, it was one the first NES games I owned, but I already have Excitebike WiiWare and the 3D CLassic on 3DS.
The only game I may pick up would be Super Mario World. I hope they release VC titles weekly.

That would be pretty sweet!  Could they keep up though?

I do not think they could keep up honestly. If so we would have VC games on the 3DS eShop more often than we do.

That is a very good way to put it.

Weekly releases would be ideal as Nintendo has a large library of VC games to distribute if we want to build the library of the Wii.

It'd be nice if they released 1 title from each platform a week... thats just me dreaming though!
