Nintendo will begin selling digital versions of Wii games on Wii U, the company has annonuced.

Metroid Prime Trilogy is now incredibly rare to find on disc.

The new range will reproduce some of the last-gen console's top titles, although there is no word of any enhancements.

Nintendo will start by selling Super Mario Galaxy 2 starting later today.

Donkey Kong Country Returns will launch on 22nd January while the excellent Metroid Prime Trilogy will arrive on 29th January.

Kirby's Adventure Wii, Pandora's Tower, Punch-Out and Sin & Punishment will be added to the range in the future, too.

Each game will cost £8.99 during its first week on sale, then raise in price to £17.99 afterwards.
