Including indie games, NES Remix 2, and GBA on the Virtual Console.
At their Nintendo Direct presentation today, Nintendo announced several new digital games that would be coming to the Wii U- headlining this effort was the rather unexpected NES Remix 2, the sequel to last December’s NES Remix, a rather pleasant surprise that, as its title suggested, provided a new mix on classic NES games. This new game will focus on later games from the NES era, including Super Mario Bros. 3, Zelda 2, Metroid, and Kid Icarus.
Nintendo also discussed several indie games coming to the Wii U eShop at length, including games like 1001 Spikes, and Ubisoft’s beautiful Child of Light.
Finally, more than a year after first announcing it, Nintendo revealed that the Gameboy Advance would finally be coming to the Wii U Virtual Console this Spring, launching with noteworthy titles like F-Zero Maximum Velocity, Metroid Fusion, and Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga.
All of these are certainly some great games for people who already own a Wii U to check out, although their ultimate system selling potential remains murky at best.
