Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap Coming to Wii U Virtual Console Soon?

http://www.technobuffalo.com/2014/05...-console-soon/


By Ron Duwell | May 22, 2014















Executive Gaming Editor Joey Davidson and myself gave Nintendoís Virtual Console a good shellacking a few weeks back once Nintendo announced plans to put Game Boy Advance games on the Wii U home console. We came to the conclusion that Nintendo needs to catch up in sharing purchases between consoles and finding a new way to get users excited about classics like Sony has.
Now, I donít think for a second that a single game is going to totally clear the air, but at least weíll be getting a few decent games out of it on the Wii U, one of which might be released in the coming weeks. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap for the Wii U has gone live on Nintendoís Official Webpage, but no official release date has been assigned to it yet.
Iíve had a go with a few Game Boy Advance games on the Wii U since our rant, and I am walking away a bit more impressed than I was expecting to, especially with Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. Thanks to M2, a company and an absolute wizard when it comes to porting and emulating old games, and its unprecedented handling of the Wii Uís Game Boy Advance emulation, that game looks like it was built specifically for a 40+ inch TV.
My feelings have softened since my gut reaction, and I believe there might be something to be found in this library.
One final test remains for this Game Boy Advance emulation on the Wii U, though. I need it to impress me with a game that I absolutely love, and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is just that. Since itís the only original Legend of Zelda game for the Game Boy Advance, and it is surviving my nostalgia as a really good and unfairly overlooked game in the series, it seems about as good as any to give the Virtual Console a true place to show what its made of.
I mean, if you canít do a Zelda game properly, what good are you?
Keep an eye out for The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap in the coming weeks for the Game Boy Advance Virtual Console on Wii U. Also, if you are interested, check out Klonoa: Empire of Dreams, which went live with the eShop Update this week. Itís not totally up to par with Klonoaís other great games, but itís a fun little puzzle platformer that could kill your wait time.

My most played Zelda. I've bought it twice for GBA (first copy was stolen >.<) and have it downloaded on my 3DS (yay ambassador program). Even though I can put my GBA copy in the GBA Adapter on the Gamecube to play on the TV if I wanted, I will probably get this too. >.>; Minish Cap is definitely one of my favorite Zelda's.

I haven't played this one, so I'd possibly get it. So many games to play this summer.

I remember buying Minish Cap from a used game store back when I was 15/16. It was such a cute game and the manga was even cuter. Might get it again if I have the extra funds.

I didnt get too hooked on this game when i first played it, but the manga got me interested. Im sure if it gets ported my friend with a 3DS would get it, so maybe i could play it then.
