Nintendo 64 Games Launching On The Wii U E-Shop

The Nintendo 64 didn’t get as much love as other classic Nintendo consoles in terms of Virtual Console in the 7th generation but hopefully the second time around is a bit better with the announcement of N64 games for the Wii U Virtual Console.

Announced for the VC were Super Mario 64 and Donkey Kong 64. The former is available right now on the North American E-shop while DK64 is expected to launch sometime in the near future. Prices for N64 titles range from $6.99 to $9.99 USD.

Super Mario 64 launched on June 23rd 1996 and was released on the Nintendo DS in 2004. Donkey Kong 64 was released on November 24th 1999 and has yet to see a re-release on modern Nintendo consoles. Could this mean that other Rare greats like Perfect Dark or Jet Force Gemini could be re-released on the Wii U?
