GBA Virtual Console Lineup revealed for Europe, North America and Japan

Cast your mind back to the January 23, 2013 edition of Nintendo Direct when we first saw GBA support for the Wii U Virtual Console, now over a year later the silence has ended. Europe and North America as well as Japan have received a launch lineup and date for the service. The odd thing is the release schedule differences between the territories. In Japan all the games have a simultaneous release while in Europe and North America a few games get released every Tuesday.

Here is the Japanese line up:

  • Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World
  • WarioWare Inc
  • Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
  • F-Zero Maximum Velocity
  • Advance Wars & Advance Wars 2
  • Golden Sun

And here is the European and North American lineup:

  • Advance Wars (April 3, 2014)
  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (April 3, 2014)
  • Metroid Fusion (April 3, 2014)
  • Kirby & the Amazing Mirror (April 10, 2014)
  • WarioWare Inc (April 10, 2014)
  • F-Zero Maximum Velocity (April 17, 2014)
  • Golden Sun (April 17, 2014)
  • Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 (April 24, 2014)

So good news for fans of the GBA, but does this mean the DS Virtual Console won’t be seen until 2015? Leave your thoughts below.
