How can Nintendo turn around its Wii U Virtual Console service?

GameZone writes, "If there's one thing that Nintendo feels comfortable relying on time and time again, it's their older game library. Now, while we won't see the company do something ideal, like releasing its classics on the iOS front, they're trying to capitalize in another way, by re-releasing some of these classics on the 3DS and Wii U. The 3DS is doing just fine with NES and Game Boy releases, but the Wii U still has yet to find its footing, with only a few select titles available at the moment, like Punch-Out!! and Kirby's Adventure." (Wii U)

Turn around? The Virtual Console on Wii U was just released.

Doesn't matter. Seems anything Nintendo do this gen is deemed a failure.

I think the recent update is the first thing in years that I haven't seen blind hate-filled comments on. But the toss up is it really didn't receive a great deal of buzz here.

Um... release games on a timely schedule? You're aware this launched this week, right?

LOL, what kind of trolling article is this? Like the above posters said, the Virtual Console just released. While I wish there may have been a few more games available (since I already had Punch Out, F-Zero, Balloon Fight and Kirby from the $0.30 promotion), other games will come. I have heard about GBA and N64 games coming, but hopefully we see all the same systems available (Master System, Genesis, Turbo Graphix 16, etc) down the road. Plus eventually Gamecube games would be a huge bonus.

The Wii U's path is beset with high mountains to climb...it's a shame Nintendo did not think the Wii U launch through instead of rushing to retail.

It literally just released, and although I already bought 4 of the 8 during their respective $0.30 sales, I did buy Super Mario Land as well, so I think they are off to a good start, it will gradually grow, but when you launch a service it makes sense to limit it at first to test it out.

Looking forward to when they add some more SNES and N64 titles though!

Problem is the VC should've been released with remote gamepad play day one. That and these new updates speeding up load times should've been addressed before the console was released.

another pointless article. ho hum.... why are these articles with self-explanatory answers even approved?

more games that are not on wii VC , like earthbound for example along with all the wii ones. Also would be really cool if nintendo found a way to install trophy support in classic games (along with all over wiiu games). Would be great to play the classic games going for trophies
