Nintendo has revealed which GBA games are due on the Wii U Virtual Console when they arrive this Spring, with a (small) handful of classics rolling out from April onwards.

Metroid Fusion, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga and Yoshi's Island Super Mario Advance 3 are the first titles to be named, with more expected to be announced shortly afterwards. It's not the most generous selection - and both Metroid Fusion and Yoshi's Island are already available to those who are part of the ambassador programme on the 3DS - but... it's a start?

They're at least excellent games. Tom Bramwell gave Metroid Fusion 9/10 back when he was a foetus, the same score he gave Yoshi's Island and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga.
