During the Nintendo Direct earlier this year, Satoru Iwata announced that Gameboy Advance games would begin making their way to the Wii U virtual console. While this wasn’t the GameCube announcement that many wanted, it does mark one of the biggest catalogues of Nintendo handheld games finally being available on a home console. No date was given when the announcement was made, but according to the Facebook page of Wii U France, the first Gameboy Advance game to come to the Wii U will be Advance Wars in April.
So far this is the only game that has been announced and it’s been confirmed by Nintendo UK as well. There’s no information on US availability, but we’ll keep you updated when we have more information.
