Nintendo has updated the Wii U system to help the slow loading times and released several games for the Virtual Console. The update is big, but didn’t take me as long as the “out of the box” update last November. Load times are improved, but I can’t help thinking they could be better. Returning to the Wii U menu is the most notable improvement. As for the Virtual Console, the standout title for me is Super Mario World. I already own two versions of that game, so I don’t think I need a third. Hopefully, Nintendo will start adding these to the Club Nintendo coin games. Check out the full list of Virtual Console games inside!
Balloon Fight (NES)
Donkey Kong Jr. (NES)
Ice Climber (NES)
Kirby’s Adventure (NES)
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES)
Super Mario World (SNES)
Don’t forget, if you had these on the Wii Virtual Console, you can upgrade for $1 or $1.50! The Wii versions will work on the Wii U, but without Gamepad support.
