Two arcade classics are headed to the Virtual Console in Donkey Kong and Galaga.
Wow, Trine 2 down to $7.99. What a steal for anyone who doesn't own that yet for their Wii U. Amazing game, and well worth that price tag.
Does it take a lot of time and resources to put VC games on the Wii u e shop? It seems they would be using their vast library of existing games to get out on the E shop- not necessarily all at once but they could be releasing more than 1 or so VC games a well on it to keep everyone interested while they wait on their new 1st party games
It takes some time and resources, because (for some reason) Nintendo doesn't have a single emulator they use for every game; each individual game gets its own, tailored emulation code. Which is silly. And, of course, there's ZERO EXCUSE for delaying VC releases of titles that are on the WiiU VC in Japan and on the Wii VC in NA/EU. The only explanation for the delay of games like Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, is that Nintendo doesn't plan on bringing any new games to the WiiU VC (that is, games that aren't already in the Wii VC) and need to spread those titles out over a period of several years.
