Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Wii U eShop this week

Plus Advance Wars 2, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.

N64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will launch on the Wii U eShop this Thursday.

For a moment we feared Nintendo might release a platform without a way to buy Ocarina of Time again.

Fans can re-live Nintendo's seminal adventure once again for £8.99.

It's not cheap, but it's probably cheaper than a copy of the remastered Ocarina of Time 3D for 3DS. Although that version is shinier. Decisions, decisions.

Also of note this week are two Nintendo DS titles which also join the Wii U Virtual Console.

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon both join the service on Thursday, priced £6.29 and £8.99 respectively.

Shadow Dragon tells the story of Marth's quest to save his sister and homeland.

Black Hole Rising isn't as good as the original, says resident Advance Wars fan Chris Donlan, but it does introduce pipes and the Neotank, he says. So there's that.
