Will be released in the next 5 weeks.
Price: 2,700 Yen
My Nintendo-user get 30% off for the launch-period.

Xenoblade
Rhythm Heaven Fever
Super Paper Mario
Project Zero 2: Wii Edition
Kirby's Epic Yarn
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Mario Strikers Charged
Mario Super Sluggers
Wario Land Shake It
Mario Sports Mix

Like all other releases these should be playable with the WiiU-gamepad if the original release was fully playable without a Wii Remote.

No Skyward Sword huh? I keep going back-and-forth between Nintendo giving it the eShop treatment or doing an HD re-release.

specifically: playable with a Wii Classic Controller.

meaning only Xenoblade btw.

I think even Nintendo wants to forget about that abomination.
You're projecting your own poor taste onto them. Neither is Skyward Sword anything resembling an abomination, nor do they want to forget about it. Why would they?

Why do I remember most of those being already available in Europe? I always thought Japan was way ahead with these.
Not that I really want them, only game I want and do not have a disc is Super Paper Mario, and I'm not sure if I already bought it from eShop earlier.

According to wikipedia there are currently 11 Wii games available on the Japanese eShop, while there are 19 in Europe and 15 in the US.

Whenever a game uses "middleware," I expect mediocrity. Just see how poor TLOU looks.

why are you so obsessed?
It's really a shame Skyward Sword is saddled with those awful Star Fox Zero quality controls.

The game won't show up on the eShop, and not sure if they want to go through the effort of revamping it for an HD re-release. Skyward Sword will be lost to history.

Uh, I'd love to play Super Paper Mario on the Wii U gamepad :O

Bring them to Euroland, I say!
SPM does not support the Classic Controller.

Xenoblade is the only game on that list that does and thus is playable with the GamePad. Unless you really just want to play on the GamePad, of course. But then you could just pop in your disc copy.

It just needs a remake that tweaks the game for traditional controls. TBH, I think Miyamoto and Aonuma probably really like the game, and likely appreciate the risk of it being forgotten.

It's not a tweak. It would be a complete redesign. The combat is entirely built around the ability to slash in all directions.

Agreed. Anyone who likes that trash is sus af.
Thanks. (wtf is sus)

Wario Land is already out on EU Wii U, but I'll gladly take Rhythm Paradise and Project Zero. Just got into Rhythm Paradise games earlier this year with the DS one.

What? Is this true?
If you had read a little further ... I posted it twice now: If a Wii game supported the Wii Classic Controller, the eShop-download-version (!!!) of that Wii game will be playable with the GamePad (buttons, etc). Otherwise it will just support Off-TV on the screen, like all other Wii games.

= only Xenoblade (from that list of new games)

It isn't unprecedented to have such big of changes. We've seen games remade from the ground up even, games that aren't lost to time (though perhaps just dated, like Metroid and Pokémon Red and Blue).

ctrl-f fire emblem radia...well shite.
Really tho, why are they not re-releaseing one of the hardest to find and more most expensive games on the console?

I would love to see some third party releases as we like Capcom Vs. Tatsunoko, No More Heroes etc.

Considering almost every other Fire Emblem game for every other VC platform has gone digital, I'm positive Radiant Dawn will happen down the line. Even Binding Blade was oddly late to the party in Japan despite being the first GBA one.

PLEASE bring Project Zero also to Europe! I already own the disc, but that actually spoils the ghost hands because the disc drive always clicks whenever it's about to come up making it ridiculous easy to evade.

It was even my first post on Miiverse since the redesign when Maiden of Black Water was released.

Wait, really? I just assumed SPM would support Classic Controllers. Does it use the Wiimote in any special way?

I suspect Radiant dawn will be delayed until something exists to support GC virtual console because of the small interactivity between the two. Or they get a retail release as a single package or something.

It uses the pointer functionality. I forget what for though.

I think that's up to those publishers sadly.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom would be GREAT cause I no longer have a copy...

TvC is never getting rereleased since the contract to sell the game was like two years and has been over for years and there is no way to renegotiate to physically release the Wii game.

Is TvC really considered rare? Local supermarket has like a whole shelf full of sealed copies last time I was there...

When in doubt, just look at the box.

But then why are you playing Skyward Sword in the first place. Find me a game that has been remade with a complete shift in focus. And I'm not talking about reboots. Besides, they wouldn't "remake" it anyway. Look at WWHD, TPHD. Skyward Sword just needs 1080p and an option to disable that atrocious HUD before you start the game and cut down the textboxes a bit. Turning the combat into "press A button to slash" does not work for this game. They'd need to come up with completely new enemy behavior, combat interactions, change a whole bunch of puzzles. You'd lose the whole thing that makes this game so cool.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And nothing needs fixing with the controls.

Tatsunoko vs Capcom will never happen for obvious licensing reasons. Just buy a disc copy. It's sub 20.

I'm a massive fan of Skyward but I doubt we're seeing a remaster or remake anytime soon, and just a straight HD port hasn't historically been Nintendo's style.
