Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels Released on Wii U Virtual Console

I always used to struggle with this game when I was a kid, on the Super Mario All-Stars 16-bit version. But now the original version of Super Mario Bros. toughest entry has been released on Wii U’s Virtual Console. It’s been somewhat of a slow build for the Wii U VC, this seems like something that should have already been released. But porting is not quite as simple as you may think, so it’s understandable that they’ve held off on this. [...]

DS Games Are Joining the Wii U Virtual Console?

Out of all of the strange and exciting news coming out of Nintendo last night, one of the tidbits that had people talking the most was a bizarre announcement made by Nintendo. Apparently, the hurdles keeping DS software from running on a Wii U had finally been overcome allowing for emulatio of DS games on the system and gamepad. That was… unexpected. What this means is that Nintendo has plans to add DS games to the Virtual Console library soon, [...]

Fan 3-D Rendering of Earthbound’s Onett Is Wonderful

Earthbound is a serious contender for greatest game of all time….that I have never played. Which is odd, because the 50′s styled, Japanese-in-origin SNES RPG seems totally and completely up my alley. Now that’s out on the Wii U Virtual Console, I’ve been really jonesing to get my hands on it…but now that I’ve seen Christopher Behr’s beautiful renderings of the 16-bit game in 3-D, I’m not sure if it will be enough. Christopher Behr, a “3-D designer for hire”, according [...]

So Europe, Asia and North American marketplaces are all seeing the removal of one of Nintendo’s older titles from the service. Yoshi’s Cookie for the NES has been available on the Virtual Console since 2008, and while it might not be the biggest part of Nintendo’s classics, it begs to question why? This isn’t the first game to get delisted from the Virtual Console, but those games that were had major licensing issues. That actually may be the reason. The [...]
