From  April onwards, classic Game Boy Advance games will be available in the Wii U eShop.

Nintendo have announced that this Spring popular titles like Metroid Fusion, Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

A great list which is sure to get gamers excited, but once again Japan have got it better. Try to curb your envy knowing that Japanese gamers get to experience  Mario Advance 2, Wario Ware, Golden Sun, F-Zero  and  Advance Wars all over again on the big screen at the centre of their living room.

Equally importantly, Japan was also given a price point:   ¥650 per title (most likely meaning £3.99 over here in Blighty).

The nostalgia-fuelled news doesn’t stop there. Nintendo have also announced NES Remix 2, a followup to the first Remix package released in December.

For those who missed it the first time round (shame on you), Nintendo essentially take a whole load of iconic and awesome moments from NES games and compile them together, one after the other to form a series of challenges. This second edition will see appearances from some of the NES’ later titles, like Punch-Out!!!, Super Mario Bros. 3  and  Metroid.

What’s more, Remix 2 will also come complete with an new, full-length game: Super Luigi Bros.. Yes, it’s basically just the original NES classic Super Mario Brothers with the lanky green one as protagonist, but do you really another reason to play through it one more time?
