GBA games hit Wii U and 3DS: here's the first wave

There's a whole new (old) wave of games coming to Nintendo's current collection of modern consoles. Both the GameBoy Advance and the Wii U will be getting a set of games throughout April, starting this week with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion, and Advance Wars. If you've played the last on that list of games, you know why the full collection of GameBoy Advance titles has been long awaited on a Nintendo digital front.

The list is being split into two. Locations in North America and Europe are being combined into one, while Japan will have its own release times and dates. Nintendo has not priced the full collection yet, but we'll plant prices in as we can as they appear.

North America and Europe

• April 3 – Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga $8, Metroid Fusion $8, Advance Wars $8

• April 10 – WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgames $7, Kirby and the Amazing Mirror $8

• April 17 – Golden Sun $8, F-Zero: Maximum Velocity $7, Super Mario Bros. 3 $5, Golden Sun $8

• April 24 – Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 $8


• April 3 – F-Zero: Maximum Velocity $7, Advance Wars 1 + 2 $8, Kirby and the Amazing Mirror $8, WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgames $7, Golden Sun $8, Super Mario Advance 2 $8

• April 30 – Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land $8, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga $8, Metroid Fusion $8, Zelda: The Minish Cap $8, Mario Tennis: Power Tour $8, Wario Land 4 $8

We can assume that pricing will be different in Japan, translated to the same point at which a $5, $7, or $8 game would cost in the USA, the same being true of Europe with Euros.
