One of the best parts of getting a new game as a kid was ripping into the packaging in order to read the manual on the way home. Now days the manual is little more than a black and white printed slip that has controls and a bunch of warnings on it. The good news is that Nintendo remembers the glory days of full-color manuals and backstories for their games, as the upcoming GBA Wii U virtual console releases will have all of their paper manuals included with the digital release. Very nice touch – GBA games on Wii U Virtual Console come with the entire original paper manuals included. pic.twitter.com/GcPJVTOPq3 — Chris Scullion (@scully1888) March 31, 2014 At least with the manuals included it actually feels like a full game purchase, even if you can’t hold it in your hand. What do you think of this inclusion? local_offer gameboy advance GBA Nintendo wii u Wii U virtual console stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when darkcreap Mmmm. Great indeed. Mario Garth This good. Yes? MetroidZero Can’t wait for Fusion. Only 2 more days! 😀 Donaald Yeah, they don’t make games like that anymore. 🙂 Magnus Eriksson Yeah, they don’t make games anymore. 🙁 Nicolas Dorion I’m mostly glad to see nintendo hasn’t abandoned the Metroid series after ……last game shanafan Making good use of the gamepad. Me liking! Ultrasyd They heard me ! That’s what I asked for 😀 Thx Kristian Kouvo I asked it too. :] MerryBlind . Good. Now I’d like a smoothing filter I can turn On/Off in any VC game and Wii Mode, just like my PS3 has. thank you. Donaald Same here a trilinear filter or super eagle for GBA games would be epic MerryBlind . Do you know what they used on PS3? I just remember it being pretty effective while not blurring too much. Pretty sure it wasn’t just a bilinear filter since bilinear filtering blurs 2D games way too much. Donaald I think it’s FSAA MerryBlind . No it isn’t. It’s definitely something applying to the whole screen. Something along the lines of a bilinear filter. It’s probably just that. ActivesiN that’s pretty cool to have the manual on the gamepad A SNES Day Off Good. Now do the same for existing NES/SNES games. David Trail NICE Adrian Will there be Pokémon games?????????????????????????????????????????????????? TrueWiiMaster Awesome. I wish they’d do this on all of their VC games.
