Nintendo 64 games heading to the Wii U eShop

Late news from E3 – Nintendo 64 games will be appearing soon to the Wii U eShop!

The Wii got a lot of Nintendo 64 games released for the Virtual Console. I personally didn’t download any of them because I already had them on the original console, but I know that a lot of other people did. What was particularly interesting was that they decided to release Sin and Punishment and Ogre Battle In the west and Europe respectively.

However, the Wii U has yet to give any love to the Nintendo 64 =(

Looking at the Wii U eShop for Nintendo 64 titles


For now, the Virtual console area only shows NES, SNES and GBA games, not games for any other console. Hopefully this will change in the near future and a whole bunch of N64 games will be released on the Wii U eShop for all to enjoy.

Nintendo has a very long history of making some of the greatest games out there – and now that the Wii U has a gamepad that can simulate the N64 controller much better than the Wii did (Classic controller doesn’t count, that was sold separately), the N64 might receive another boom in popularity.
