One of the biggest questions we always get here at Wii U Daily is when is Nintendo going to make Super Mario Bros. 3 available on the Wii U eShop. Well, that day is today, my friends. The game is joining the Wii U virtual console amid a roster of great Gameboy Advance games, so if you’re looking for something to play you should definitely check out these titles because you’ve been asking for them forever.

This is perhaps Nintendo’s greatest week for GBA Wii U downloads, as they saved two of the best titles on offer for release this week. Golden Sun and F-Zero: Maximum Velocity are both up for grabs today and both are classic Nintendo franchises. Golden Sun is a great JRPG with a unique battle system featuring summons as well as a class system that’s based around items you have equipped, instead of a rigid nature. This makes your characters highly flexible for all the encounters.

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity is the zany racing game featuring Captain Falcon and is the third game in the F-Zero series, so if you didn’t play it when it was actually new way back in 2001, there’s a lot of fun waiting for you here.

  • greengecko007

    The virtual console is shaping up to be a much better service, but please, don’t let up on supporting it Nintendo.

    As much as I want to own SMB3 again, I think I’d rather buy that last Fire Emblem DLC pack…

  • Kev

    I’m getting Advance Wars or Golden Sun. Haven’t decided yet.

  • Sdudyoy

    While I still don’t own Black flag, and I’ve been wanting this game, $29.99 seems like a steal!

  • TheBoldman67

    Awwee, I was kind of hoping to see F-Zero GP Legend instead, I loved that game and it was probably my favorite 16-bit F-Zero, because I really hate Maximum Velocity’s handling. Oh well.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    This is the end for Nintendo. How sad. Who would have thought this would happen…

    • Commander Raichu

      XD nice joke XD

  • Adam Fox

    Wow….pretty awesome week again for VC!

  • hahahero

    What is Classic Games Overload?

  • nWo4liFe

    Awesomeness. My Wii U is menu is starting to look like a freaking mess though. They should have folders or some sort of thing like that to keep everything organized.

    I have a feeling we might be getting a new OS this summer…..

  • anthony optimo

    Nintendo kudos for trying, but you all messed up. Why not give us consumers the Advance version with updated graphics? Super Mario Brothers 2 Advance and Super Mario Brothers 3 Advance, why not Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Advanced. Disappointed.

  • Vriska Serket

    Oh fuck.
    I bought AC4 at launch for 60 8oon8ucks.

  • Nathan DeFalco

    Other sites are reporting assassins creed only being reduced to $39.99. Ashley, can you confirm which is right?
