Friday, 26th April 2013 12:33 GMT By Dave Cook

Nintendo will launch its Virtual Console game catalogue on Wii U across the UK tomorrow. The full roster of initial games has been revealed.

The games are:

  • Super Mario World
  • F-Zero
  • Excitebike
  • Mario’s Super Picross
  • Ice Climber
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Punch-Out!!

All downloads are 60hz American editions, aside from Picross. The NES titles will cost £3.49 to while the SNES titles will set you back £5.49.

However, if you already own any of these games on Wii, you can transfer them over to your Wii U free of charge, or buy them at a discounted price of 99p/£1.49.

So, do you see anything you like?

Thanks ONM.

    Too much, Nintendo.
    NES games should be 60p/$1 & those older SNES games no more than £1.60/$2.50

    A bit too expensive for me.

    ^Agree also.

    £5.49 for SNES games I’ve bought numerous times already is steep. Especially in the day and age of app stores. In fact I’ll probably give them all a miss all together unless they come down in price…

    Do the Wii U and 3DS share the games from the virtual console?

    And they’ll all be in 50Hz. Nintendo suck.

    Your reading skills suck.

    They are too expensive though.

    60Hz, yeah, so they say. But will the next batch of titles be? Highly unlikely. But we’ll see…
