F-Zero comes to Wii U tomorrow!

Despite being a SNES game, F-Zero is being released as part of the Famicom 30th Anniversary series which sees Nintendo releasing a retro classic at a reduced price every month in the build up to the console's 30th anniversary. F-Zero will cost just 30p in the eShop. (eShop, F-Zero, Retro, Wii U)

does anyone know if I can use the WiiU's gamepad for Wii Virtual Console games? That would be dope!

Wii U vc can be played on the gamepad. But that's an update that is upcoming in the summer? ( I might be wrong about the time period).

Normal VC won't work on the gamepad. For any VC you have you need to convert it to the Wii-U first ( Nintendo streamlining again /sarcasm ).

Gameboy and gameboy advance will also be introduced during the summer.

Not quite. Wii U VC titles work fine on the Gamepad (obviously) but Wii VC titles don't. However... Once the same title is available on the Wii U VC, you can pay a $1/£1 to "upgrade" to the Wii U version which gets you things such as save states and off-TV play.

yes you can play f zero and balloon fight on the game pad, the nintendo direct said, the rest of the vc will come sometime in april!! already down loaded both games, so cool to have them back!!!

I believe that these special 30th anniversary games work on the gamepad. However all your regular VC games will not currently work as you still have to play them in Wii mode. There is an update coming that will change all of that, but in the meantime, no Gamepad support for all your old VC games.

Regardless, 30 cents for F-Zero? Ummm, that's a no brainer!

Agreed! Especially as they're giving us Europeans the 60hz version of F-Zero... Now all we need to start doing now is complaining about the lack of a 50/60hz toggle option in all the VC games in all regions ;)

Yes!
Can't wait for Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Breath of Fire, Super Mario Rpg...

Hyped.

60Hz!
Our prayers has been answered?
Hope all games will turn out that way.

Don't own a Wii U yet, but will probably at the end of the year with Wind Waker so only wish the best.

Hopefully if enough people buy it ( again ) perhaps they will make a new F-Zero?

Anyone know if this or any other snes games will be up on the 3DS store? At the moment it seems theres just classic handheld titles on there with some NES games thrown in for good measure. Which is by no means a bad thing but it would be sweet to get some snes titles on there too. Its not like the 3DS couldnt handle them isit.

Love the Art style in this game. And music.

Can't wait till all the Famicom games are available, I just wish this was a sign that we'll be getting a new F-Zero on Wii U at some point in the future.
