Super Mario 64 and Yoshi’s Island come to the WiiU | More virtual console titles on the way

Some of the best classic games of the older generation Nintendo consoles are coming to the WiiU and the first games have now begun to roll out on the console’s digital store.

Nintendo announced at its Nintendo Direct conference plans to keep a steady influx of N64 and Nintendo DS games rolling out this month. Super Mario 64 (N64) and Yoshi’s Island (DS) will be coming first and games like Donkey Kong 64, Mario Kart DS, Paper Mario, WarioWare Touched, and more coming later this month.

The current price point is slated at $10 for all of the games listed above, but Nintendo has claimed that the N64 games will have some titles running a slightly higher cost — as much as $12. Some DS games will run a bit cheaper at as little as $7 per title.

Though the current controller layout may differ from these older system Nintendo will offer a variety of button layout options and interface options to make the experience of replaying the classic games as comfortable as possible. For DS games, players can elect to split the screens between the gamepad and the television, or they can simply play with both screens on either single display.
