In January of last year Nintendo announced its intentions to bring Game Boy Advance titles to the Wii U Virtual Console. In today’s Nintendo Direct, they announced that they will finally begin releasing them this April!
The titles that were specifically mentioned were Metroid Fusion, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3. It should be noted that two of these games were given to Nintendo 3DS ambassadors during the ambassador program, so it’s likely we’ll see those games end up on the Wii U virtual console sooner rather than later.
Do you have any GBA games you’d particularly like to see on the system?
