Wii U Virtual Console Thread 2.0 (With complete list of leftovers)

Hello again! Well, it seems that sadly the old VC thread was lost with the new website, so I decided to restart the Wii U VC thread as releases are picking up again due to N64 and DS VC games.
If you knew me from the old website, you likely may have noticed that I made a big master list of every single VC game from the Wii VC, which ones came over to Wii U VC and in what regions, etc. Well, I did some digging around and found a backup of that list, so here it is, updated to include info from as recent as today.

...And I'll update this first post as much as I can to keep it up to date. Sadly my saved version was only up until March, so there may still be a few holes in my list. The new formatting of this site also can easily cause formatting errors considering how this was made with the older format in mind, so I'll try to get those fixed sometime soon. For now let me know if I missed anything and I'll add it, and of course feel free to discuss the Wii U VC here, including latest releases, your hopes for future games and more.

Any chance we could get an update on this list? Plenty of VC goodness added, although I still just want Mario Kart 64Sad

Also, Europe got Picross 3D which is a cool surprise. Hopefully NA gets it soon enough.

Wasn't really much to add, but I did so anyway.

I really want Mario Party 2 Sad My family loves that game, and I'd love to have it with wireless remotes

Every time I hear anything about Mario Party 2 I get angrier and angrier that we never got MP3 on the Wii. The only N64 one that I've never played and there's literally zero legal issues for that one.

I own all 3 physically, and my sisters loved playing 2 and 3 with me growing up, and still do. I would love to have them. on wii, I figure that it's because they took so long to roll things out the timing just never worked out.

Wrecking Crew '98 for Japan is pretty cool. Hopefully other regions can get it like VS Excitebike and Murasame Castle on 3DS

4 weeks in a row of Wii games.. Bleh

Square Enix finally remembers they own Taito and is rereleasing the two SNES Taito ports next week in Japan, so I updated the list. Slow month overall due to NA getting no VC games in September.

Two DS games tomorrow. We're on a roll with catching up, though I think its mostly due to NOA going "shit we're not allowed to complete the GBA VC anymore we better get as many DS titles ready as we can before we stop those too"

I'd prefa huge dump of N64 games myself, I still want a Mario party

Eh, maybe but I do think we'll see Mario Vs DK GBA at the very least.

At this rate we'll get caught up pretty soon. Only problem is that we will probably just start having weeks of nothing like Europe now.

Despite going through a whole month of nothing in terms of VC (getting lame wii retail downloads instead) I think NOA will at least put out one old game a week, though I hope they don't just crap out Wii titles forever. We already got Sin and Punishment 2 and MPT, I think that's all the retail downloads we need.

...Though if Data East put out their arcade disc on the retail downloads and if Namco put Klonoa up, I'd probably check those out since discs are rare

Europe and Japan got F-Zero X, so hopefully we get that over in NA soon. Now we just need to see Smash 64 and Pokémon Puzzle League to clean up the 1st party N64 games.

DK Jungle Beat is new as well, so that's pretty cool.

Pretty soon Nintendo will have no choice but to release some N64 games haha!

I've been busy with Spirit Tracks and Wild World, though.

I think they'll block VC games around the Switch presentation. They already cut off GBA games so N64/DS Cutoff is coming soon.

Been busy with IRL anxiety and playing PSONE Classics the past month so I haven't updated the list, so I'll do that now

EDIT: Holy frick it seems that the only DS games left for catchup are Picross 3D and the two Intelligent System games.

Crazy isn't it? Time for the N64 games to roll on in I hope.

New N64 VC game tomorrow: Excitebike 64!

This is the second Wii U VC exclusive N64 game. Now to hope for Dr Mario 64 and Mario Party 3 before the Wii U rolls out.

Please let Mario Party 2 be next week! and a solid stream up to Christmas. I'd love to load up before going home, if Mario Party 2 releases I might have to sneak my wii-u with me on the family Christmas trip

Awesome surprise. Bring on PilotWings, Dr. Mario, and Mario Party 1/3 as well please..

We're Getting Mario Party 2 in NA just in time for Christmas tomorrow, and I can't wait to play it with my sisters. Also means the VC is almost caught up

With SF64 coming out tomorrow for the Wii U VC, pretty much every supported VC platform is caught up worldwide except for DS games.

Which means the FINAL Wii U VC game could very well be Picross 3D. At least, I hope so as having it skipped would make me pretty sad.

I assume they'll just pad out the rest of the weeks with Wii Retail downloads until the switch comes (though if it doesn't launch with a VC service at all it's going to be a pain)

Yep, Picross 3D is the Lone Ranger. Plus Mario vs. DK, but who knows where that is.

I expect Pikmin 2 and NSMB Wii, since Europe has em.

Mario Vs DK came out of nowhere and is launching tomorrow, thankfully. Hopefully after this we get Picross 3D before the switch launches.

I think I'm out then I'm back in. trying to save for digital stuff on the Switch but MVDK and Bomberman are soo tempting. Then again the accelerated rate of releases makes me wonder if this bodes well for the Switch VC and if there may indeed be some sort of carryover

Ogre Battle 64 having just been made available on Wii U in Europe makes me think that you guys will get in soon in the US as well.

Mario VS DK, nice. My prediction for potentially the final 3 weeks of Wii U VC:

Ogre Battle 64
Pikmin 2 and Picross 3D
New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Picross 3D launched in North America, pretty much ending the DS VC until further notice. I've marked it with the * symbol since no region is missing games for that system. I'll open up a thread for the Switch VC when that launches, and will keep this open even if the Wii U VC stops altogether.

Maybe I shouldn't expect them (on Wii U at least), but I wanted to see Kirby Super Star Ultra (there's precedent of remakes available along the originals, so why not this one?), The Legendary Starfy, Magical Starsign, Planet Puzzle League, Custom Robo Arena and Super Princess Peach.

Those are games I'd double dip. In SPP case, no way I'd pay 600 Mexican pesos for that game when it's just the cart.

Well I've updated with some games released over the past few months but as the Wii U VC is dying I think I'm going to do the same thing with the ACA series and the Switch VC (when that launches). I'll just have to ask cort if I could make said threads
