GBA titles to begin hitting Wii U next week

Posted on March 25, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in GBA, News, Podcast Stories, Wii U eShop

At least in Europe, Game Boy Advance titles will begin arriving on the Wii U eShop next week. Nintendo’s UK page posted the message below, confirming that Advance Wars will be available on April 3.

It’s unclear at this time if any other GBA games will be joining Advance Wars in Europe next week.

    This is great news but it would have a made a WHOLE LOT MORE sense to keep GBA roms on the 3DS and let the Wii U focus on home consoles like the N64 and Gamecube.

    • I haven’t heard this original, intriguing, viewpoint before; please tell me more.

      Since we already have Ocarina and Star Fox on the 3DS and the Wii U is getting now the GBA VC and later the DS VC… Probably we will never see N64 or Gamecube games on the Wii U.
      Yay for Nintendo for being complete idiots and out of touch with their consumers again.
      Most of good N64 and GC games are already expensive, rare to find collectors copies. And there are a lot of Wii games already on that stage.
      I’m trying but yet i can’t understand how a company like Nintendo makes so much dumb moves in so short time.

        After what they did with WindWakerHD I’m beginning to think that this has to do with those games looking awful if they were to just go on the eshop. I think Nintendo would want to do something special with Mario 64 before they toss it on there. It would probably look awful. I’d rather have them touch those games up a little.

    Like I am Error said, it would have made more sense if VC handheld games made its way to handheld systems. But alas, its Nintendo. I just hope they don’t put ridiculous prices on ’em.

    • Yes, let’s remove all the NES games from 3DS

        Remove? no, just keep them on both.

    Price is going to be interesting with these GBA games. $10? $15? Better not be too much. A good first pick though, assuming NA gets the same game of course.

      It’s Nintendo, don’t expect reasonable prices.

      • Andrew

        That is my worry for sure.

    If they bring the GBA version of Super Mario 3 then it will be worth the wait for that game.

    Surely this means NA will get Advance W… oh wait… we’ll get American Idol GBA Version.
