Nintendo have finally revealed the launch line up for the North American Virtual Console on Wii U, which should launch sometime this week….


Discovered through a series of images Nintendo posted on their official Facebook page, the following titles are set to launch the Wii U Virtual Console sometime this week…


  • Balloon Fight
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Excite Bike
  • Ice Climber
  • Kirby‚Äôs Adventure
  • Punch-Out!!


  • Super Mario World
  • F-Zero

You may remember a slightly different list we posted a few days ago which featured extra titles. This appears to have been put together by the Virtual Console teaser video Nintendo release and is only indicative of more titles heading to the Virtual Console each week.

Nintendo have yet to cement a date for the Virtual Console but we know it will happen after the new firmware update schedule for this week. Nintendo did announce a few days of maintenance at the start of the week, and then later an extra disruption to services on Thursday, so it appears there may be a few issues behind the scenes.

Watch this space for the latest updates...
