In today’s Europe-based Nintendo Direct, it was announced that Wii games will be coming to Wii U, downloadable from the Nintendo eShop. The first title available is Super Mario Galaxy 2, which can be downloaded now.
It will be followed by Punch-Out!! on January 22nd and Metroid Prime: Trilogy on January 29th. All games will be compatible natively with the Wii U gamepad, won’t require Wii Mode to run and they’ll be on sale for the first week after release.
