Nintendo - GAMEBOY ADVANCE games are now playable with Wii U

Nintendo is going to start releasing GAMEBOY ADVANCE games for Virtual Console for Wii U on April 3.

You can download Nintendo's games that were released in the past for old game consoles, such as Family Computer (Nintendo), Super Famicom (Super Nintendo Entertainment System), Nintendo 64, and arcade games, and play with the Wii U - called Virtual Console.

On April 3, the first 6 titles will be released. If you purchase one of these 6 games, you will be able to purchase the remaining 5 games for a 30% discounted price during a certain time, from April 3 to April 6. The regular price for a game is ¥702 so the 30% discounted price will be ¥490.
