One of the best parts of getting a new game as a kid was ripping into the packaging in order to read the manual on the way home. Now days the manual is little more than a black and white printed slip that has controls and a bunch of warnings on it. The good news is that Nintendo remembers the glory days of full-color manuals and backstories for their games, as the upcoming GBA Wii U virtual console releases will have all of their paper manuals included with the digital release.

At least with the manuals included it actually feels like a full game purchase, even if you can’t hold it in your hand. What do you think of this inclusion?
