Nintendo has launched the much anticipated Virtual Console service onto Wii U consoles across Australia and Europe.

The service was made available to North America users overnight.

Nintendo’s Virtual Console allows its users to purchase and download classic games from past generations, including but not limited to iconic titles such as Super Mario Bros. for NES and Super Metroid for Super Nintendo.

Below is the full list of available games for Australians, with prices accurate at time of writing.

  • Super Mario World – $10.40AUD
  • F-Zerio – $10.40AUD
  • Mario’s Super Picross – $10.40AUD
  • Donkey Kong Jr. – $6.50AUD
  • Excitebike – $6.50AUD
  • Ice Climber – $6.50AUD
  • Punch-Out!! – $6.50AUD

Kirby’s Adventure is still available for download as part of the trail campaign, though like Ballon Flight isn’t apart of the official Virtual Console line-up. For your chance to snatch it up you better download quickly.

If you already purchased any of the above on the Wii’s Virtual Console you will need to re-purchases them, albeit at a reduced price. Super Nintendo titles are reduced down from $10.40AUD down to $1.95AUD, whereas Nintendo Entertainment System titles go from $6.50AUD to $1.30AUD.

Nintendo has also launched its Panorama View application. This allows you to view places all around the world in a way that make you as if you’re really there. Each experience is $2.50AUD.

With the Virtual Console finally available on Wii U, what will you download first? Let us hope Nintendo can keep a steady stream of new titles rolling in.
