No word on North America. We'll keep an ear out. UPDATE: Confirmed!

Thanks for the tip, Mark!


  1. I wonder why ? I thought there are Megaman 1-5 WII VC is working on Wii U.. Why again ? I am confused.

  2. Yay?
    Well, good for newcomers, but as an oldie, I think I'll wait for "Rockman Collection Works" to be released.

  3. You will fuck up your eyes if you will play the game on a screen so small.

  4. @Anon 1: All Virtual Console games must be re-worked to work on Wii U. You have to buy them again, but if you own them already you can get a discount.

    @Anon3: Then play on-tv.

  5. @Anon3

    So... What about people who have been playing on handhelds?

  6. Interesting then I am not interest to buy them again for Wii U. They want our money again. No thanks! Its annoying!

  7. *YAWN*

    Wake me up when they add something that hasn't been re-released before... You know, like the next four Game Boy games?

  8. @April 29, 2013 at 6:27 PM Anon: if you did your research, you would know that if you had transferred your wii data over, which includes the shop channel purchase data, you only have to pay $1.00 for the Wii U version of NES games you own, and you only pay $1.50 for the Wii U version of SNES games you own already.

    Nintendo isn't scamming you at all. They just want to make up for the cost of giving a better version with customizable controls as well as a save state.
