Some of the best games ever coming soon to Virtual Console

It took them long enough, but it seems that finally Nintendo 64 games will be coming soon to the Wii U Virtual Console. The official Wii U Virtual Console page has been updated and it mentions Nintendo 64 when referring to future releases. No release dates have been given as of yet but it can’t be too much longer we have to wait to play some classic N64 titles on Wii U.

“Check back regularly for the latest releases, including the future addition of titles from the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 systems.”

No actual games have been revealed either, but you can already imagine some of the games that will be releasing, titles such as Super Mario 64, which was the first N64 game to release on Wii Virtual Console way back in 2006, Ocarina Of Time, Mario Kart 64, F-Zero X, the list goes on.

Everyone remembers this game, but it doesn't have to be the basis for every 3D platformer for the rest of existence.

We expected Nintendo 64 Virtual Console games to be available when the Wii U launched, but it never happened, we never actually got any Virtual Console games at launch. But it now seems like they’re finally coming.
