Yesterday we reported that a few Gameboy Advance games were headed to the European Wii U eShop, but still had no confirmation of a North American release date. It seems that Nintendo World Report received word that 8 classic titles from the Gameboy Advance era will be gracing the Wii U eShop here and for our Ninten-bros across the pond throughout next month!
According to NWR, here is what we can expect next month —
- Advance Wars – $7.99
- Metroid Fusion – $7.99
- Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga – $7.99
- WarioWare Inc: Minigame Mania – $6.99
- Kirby: The Amazing Mirror – $6.99
- Golden Sun – $7.99
- F-Zero: Maximum Velocity – $6.99
- Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 – $7.99
I know some of our readers were on the fence about picking up GBA titles on a home console, or maybe more so curious as to why the handheld titles are skipping the 3DS eShop. All I know is that Metroid Fusion, Golden Sun and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga were Van Dam delicious and I’ll be picking them up day-one.
If anything, I’m a little sad that Japan is getting an Advance Wars 1 & 2 combo pack, as well as The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap and we’re not.
What GBA classics would you like to see hit the Wii U next? I’m hoping for Metroid: Zero Mission, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Pokemon Leaf Green & The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap myself, or maybe some of those Mega Man Battle Network games that I never had the chance to check out.
