Full-Size Wii Games Available for Wii U in eShop

/ 2 years ago


Though the technology may be dated, the Nintendo Wii still boasts some of the finest video games from the last decade, so there’s some good news for those Wii U owners desperately scouring eBay for some of the previous generation’s classics: as of 14th January, the Wii U eShop will be selling full-size downloadable Wii games, starting with the brilliant 3D platformer Super Mario Galaxy 2.

If the release schedule follows the projected pace – with Punch-Out and Metroid Prime Trilogy due out on 22nd and 29th January, respectively – then it will take some time for Wii U owners to access a substantial Wii back-catalogue, but if the early releases are successful, it seems likely that Nintendo will accelerate its timetable.
