Nintendo Wii U owners will be given the opportunity to play Wii games a bit easier now that select titles will be made available within the Nintendo eShop.
Starting today, Nintendo Wii games will be made available on the Wii U eShop, with the first title being Super Mario Galaxy 2. In a few weeks, additional titles will become available with Punch-Out!! releasing on January 22 and Metroid Prime Trilogy available on January 29. Nintendo is also making these games available for half their listed price for one week after it’s released. Once that week is up, prices will return to their normal rate.
Games that are compatible with the Classic Controller will be able to experience their Wii games with the Wii U GamePad.
