If you're as excited as we are about the arrival of Gameboy Advance games for the Wii U Virtual Console service then we have terrific news for you as Nintendo of America has announced that many GBA games are going to be released on the service starting on April 3rd! The line-up looks quite impressive and there will be several releases each week which will at least temporarily bring an end to the Wii U Virtual Console drought that North America and Europe have been experiencing! Here's a list of confirmed upcoming titles that are headed to the Wii U Virtual Console Service:

April 3rd:


  • Advance Wars ($7.99)

  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga ($7.99)

  • Metroid Fusion ($7.99)

That's quite a release schedule for GBA titles for the Wii U Virtual Console! If you looked carefully at the list you probably noticed that Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES is also going to be released in North America on April 17th! So what do you think of the Virtual Console releases for the month of April? Which games will you be downloading? Let us know in our comments!

At least WiiU VC is getting better, but all these games should be on 3DS as well (although I have a few on my XL already)

I wonder if any third party GBA games will be released during the month of April?
Staroceancrazy
Those are awesome games and the prices aren't too high either Exclamation
Most of these games will be mine! Very Happy

I have never played a game in the Golden Sun series so this will be my chance to see what the hype for the series is about!
Hopefully Nintendo will release Golden Sun 2 and the third and final Golden Sun for the DS on the Wii U virtual console!

I wonder how quick we'll get N64 and DS games on VC? (hopefully this year)

DS games are scheduled to launch sometime in June, but there's no word on when N64 games will come to the Wii U Virtual Console. Wink

I have 15 GBA games (and an original GBA), so I'm not in a tremendous rush for GBA games right now. Still, it's nice that a new option is there for Wii U owners. Very Happy

I heard the same thing.
There was an article posted here at WiiWareWave just after the investors meeting that explained that DS games were going to start being released for Wii U in June! I love you

If you liked Super Mario RPG you will fall in love with Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga! I love you
It is more fun than the similar Super Mario RPG and has funnier dialog than Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door! I love you

Is F-Zero: Maximum Velocity as good as the first F-Zero game for the Super Nintendo?

I have no idea, but I heard that the other two GBA F-Zero games are far better than Maximum Velocity.

We Australians are getting Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow on the 25th of April as the first third party Gameboy Advanced title! :-D

We're so close... Ugh I can't wait much longer
GeekyGamerZack
I currently own 12.5% of those GBA games. Can you guess what they are, reader of this post? Cool

I did the same thing so expect all 3 GBA titles released today to be reviewed before next week's eshop update. Wink

I bought the only 2 games i needed on a current gen console, although it seems weird to have a couple GBA games on WiiU and the rest on 3DS ATM
