A Link to the Past hits Wii U eshop in North America Today

  • Admin
Just a heads up that A Link to the Past is releasing today on the Wii U eShop for though of us in North America as our European friends have had access to the game since the beginning of December.

The price is $8, but it is reduced to $1.50 if you have already bought the Wii version. Will you Wii U owners be downloading?

Speaking of VC games on the Wii U, another interesting tidbit was released last night with Iwata announcing that DS games will be coming to the Wii U Virtual Console. This would mean that the Wii U will be able to play 10 out of the 15 main Zelda titles if, or rather when, the N64 and DS Zelda's are released for the Wii U VC. The obvious exceptions being the Game Boy Zelda titles and the recently released A Link Between Worlds. Now let's just hope Nintendo can get a better and faster release schedule for it's VC titles.

Well there were those 10 GBA games for us early adopters. Other than that, they seem to be stalling hardcore. Almost as much as the Wii U not having any N64 VC. :\
