Rayman 3, Rayman Advance hitting the North America Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow

Posted on April 19, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop

The North American Wii U Virtual Console is being updated this week with two surprise Rayman games. Tomorrow, Ubisoft will be putting out both Rayman 3 and Rayman Advance on the eShop.

Here’s an overview of Rayman 3:

“When Globox, Rayman’s best friend, inadvertently swallows a dreadful black Lum, it isn’t the end of the world — but it could be! To prevent a full-scale invasion of malicious, ill-mannered hordes there is only one solution: Rayman must get someone to treat his burdensome pal.”

And Rayman Advance:

“In Rayman’s world, nature and people live together in peace. But one day, the evil Mister Dark steals the Great Protoon that provides energy and balance in the world. Betilla tried to stop him, but she wasn’t strong enough. Now strange new creatures appear and capture every Electoon they can find! They definitely need a hero… Rayman to the rescue!”

Nintendo’s website isn’t listing prices at the moment. Rayman 3 and Rayman 3 should both be GBA releases, so based on that, each one should cost about $7.99.

    what is the secret of keep launching titles in a dead console, i am not buying anymore VC until Switch one is avaliable

    • Barely Able

      Probably had them in the pipeline for a while and the overhead must be next to nothing. Figure some people might still be buying them. What’s really dumb though is not releasing more on 3DS when some titles have yet to arrive.

      • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

        I could buy it but I am waiting for the switch VC. You are right about the 3ds

    • its not dead
      i play it every day

      • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

        I play it everyday too until smash bros come to Switch but I mean, no new games arre coming to it, all the attention is for the Switch now

        • you’re literally complaining that new games are coming to wiiu and not switch

          and then you say
          “no new games are coming to” wiiu

          • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

            you are not dumb you know what I mean, VC games are not main games you should know that WiiU is not going to receive new games like Mario odissey, ARMS, Splatoon 2 etc etc what I am trying to say is that this Rayman 3 VC should be on the Switch and not in the WiiU, I definitely buy it on Switch but no in my beloved WiiU, sorry if you get ofended when i say “dead console”, that was not my intention.

            He said there’s no NEW games. VC games are not new, so he is correct. Stop trying to start arguments for no reason.

          • He’s complaining that these games are not coming to Switch, so obviously he’s ok without “new” games as long as they’re on the system he has. Listen to yourself, seriously.

  • Blake Good

    They should keep releasing VC games and make those avalible on the Switch VC. I assume the Switch VC will launch with about 50+ games. I’m so glad we’re getting more unreleased VC games! No more droughts, Nintendo! Those are really bad!

    • Thomas_NE

      They really should launch VC with 50+ titles and market the crap out of it. Just look at the Classic NES.

      • MagcargoMan

        I reckon they should just give the VC a unified library. It’s dumb how each console we have to wait for certain NES games to come out.

  • hi v3.0

    Make VC for Switch already Nintendo!

  • SomeFluffer64

    Looks like I’ll have a reason to play some Wii U again.

    Now if only the Sonic Advance trilogy could come stateside…

    • Christopher Dubois

      Yeah I am also hoping the numbered FF Advance titles will also come stateside. Japan has had them for some time now and we are stuck with Tactics (which Japan also has). If anything I hope they release them around the time the Cloud amiibo releases.

    RAYMAN 2 PLS UBISOFT!!!

  • JasonBall

    Yeah, NOW Ubisoft recognizes Wii U. Ugh!

    The Wii U is still alive!

  • Addy

    Wait, what?

  • TruExtent

    I’d like to get one of these, but I still have no clue how the VC will work on Switch. If there’s no way to transfer them over, then I’m less inclined to get them here on Wii U or my 3DS.
