definitely looking forward to some Metroid Fusion on my Wii U :)

I'm dreaming of some Golden Sun 1&2, personally, alongside Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.

Aria (and hopefully Dawn from DS) would kill. I have the originals for my DS and have them emulated on my living room TV, I would also buy them again for the Wii U. 2D Metroidvania is godly. They need to ditch that terrible LoS crap and make a FULL ON 2D, HD Aria or Dawn sequel.

I love the look of GBA games. Probably my favorite ever.

Hopefully Nintendo can get the original Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories on there. One of my favorite Gameboy Advance games.

Metroid Fusion is one of the best games ever created by man.

I'm baffled as to why GBA games aren't coming to 3DS.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   335d ago
The simple answer is that the Wii U needs the help more.
Geekman  +   335d ago
True, but who's gonna buy a Wii U for GBA games?
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   335d ago
@Geekman
The people who wanted GBA games on a bigger screen, or who have lost their GBA collection and want to re-own them?
Or just people looking for GBA games they haven't played before.
I know that I'll be looking for a few, for sure.

This can only be good. If the Wii U ever needed a plan b, personally - and as a LONG standing Nintendo fan - I sadly think it may...well this is it! Only Nintendo's rich back catalogue and heritage can muster this type of frenzy when drip feeding us the "classics".

Thats great and all but where are those N64 games? Let alone the rest of their NES and SNES titles? ;)
Chard  +   335d ago
A million times THIS
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   335d ago
For once I agree with you; Nintendo really should get hopping on those games for the Wii U's VC. Some N64 games are already on the Wii's VC, but I think most people are over the Wii by now; it's time to let the Wii U's E-shop shine...

Virtual console is the icing on the wiiu cake. I'd prefer new games instead of old games!

Waiting for Golden Sun and Advanced Wars.
Geekman  +   335d ago
Never owned a Gameboy. I'm really looking forward to this.

I have 10 GBA games on my 3DS XL, including Metroid Fusion and many others, that were transferred from my old 3DS as a part of the ambassador program and am stunned that Nintendo has yet to release these games to the public. I would much rather play GBA titles on my 3DS than on my Wii U. I swear sometimes I think that Nintendo has the wrong idea when it comes to what, where and why they release certain games on systems. GBA games should come out on the 3DS along with GB Color and even Virtual Boy titles and, GCN should come out on the Wii U along with N64 and any other console games.
Realplaya  +   335d ago
It's all about making a profit. Nintendo has sold about 6 million Wii U'S so think outside the box if they sell a million of each game at about $4.00-$5.00 each that's a lot of money. The DS games with all of these 8 bit games coming out will translate well to the Wii U.

VC games is the reason why my Wii U is not collecting dust
Sly-Lupin  +   334d ago
...But the WiiU virtual console is terrible.
DoggyBiscuit  +   334d ago
Eshop got games like Earthbound Super Mario World Mega Man 1-6 and much more they nothing terrible about these games
Sly-Lupin  +   334d ago
I never said there weren't good games games. I said that the VC sucks.

Which really isn't a point you can argue, comparing the WiiU VC to the Wii VC. The only thing the WiiU VC has over Wii is Earthbound, and Earthbound doesn't quite make up for the lack of classic SNES and N64 games.

Fusion was a great game and unfortunately the last 2D Metroid. :(

I don't understand why Nintendo has not released another 2D Metroid till then? Ok Retro was working on 3D Metroid's but Ninyendo developer could working on a 2D Metroid for DS on same time for example.
DivineAssault  +   334d ago
can this be done on 3DS please!!!!!!!!!! its cool that the wii u is getting these games but i think it would be ideal on the go with 3DS.. Matter of fact it belongs there
