Nintendo has been slowly moving away from putting SNES and NES games on the eShop for the Virtual Console and putting Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, and Wii games on there in their place. Nintendo said they wanted to expand the Virtual Console library by including games from systems beyond the SNES and NES days. The games they announced originally have been released on the Virtual Console, however Nintendo seems to be remaining tight lipped on what we can expect in future releases.
Recently, a rating for New Super Mario Bros showed up on the ESRB‘s website under the Wii U platform which makes me wonder if we’re going to see a release of this game on the Virtual Console soon. This would be pretty awesome as it was the first 2D Mario platformer to come out after Super Mario World fifteen years later. Additionally, if this indeed gets released on the Virtual Console, it will be the third playable New Super Mario Bros. game on the Wii U.
I, for one, will be picking this game up if it does indeed get released on the eShop. Will you? What other games from the Nintendo DS game library are you just itching to play again?
