Nintendo has announced the line-up for the launch of Game Boy Advance titles on the Virtual Console service for Wii U. GBA games will be added starting on April 3rd and the last of the launch line-up will be released on April 24th (in North America & Europe) and on April 30th (for Japan). The line-ups are:

North America & Europe – 8 Games

  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion, & Advance Wars – April 3rd
  • WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgames & Kirby and the Amazing Mirror – April 10th
  • Golden Sun &  F-Zero: Maximum Velocity – April 17th
  • Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 – April 24th

Japan – 12 Games

  • F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, Advance Wars 1 + 2, Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgames, Golden Sun, & Super Mario Advance 2 – April 3rd
  • Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Mario Tennis: Power Tour, & Wario Land 4 – April 30th

So while Japan is apparently only going to have titles released on two days in April, they are getting four more games than either North America or Europe. Japan exclusives (for now) are: Super Mario Advance 2, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land,  The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Mario Tennis: Power Tour, & Wario Land 4. Advance Wars 1 + 2 is a partial exclusive for Japan, as North America & Europe will be getting the first one, but not the sequel, while Japan gets the re-released combo pack edition (both games in one copy). Meanwhile, Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 is  exclusive (for now) to North America & Europe.

Justin Richmond who was working as the Game Director for the upcoming fourth entry in the Uncharted series has left Naughty Dog. He also previously worked on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves & Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. He issued a statement to IGN stating:

“I have in fact made the decision to leave Naughty Dog. I love the company and the people and know that they will continue to create awesome games going forward. On a happier note, after careful consideration and exploration I have joined Riot Games. There is some really innovative stuff going on here that I can’t wait to be a part of.”

No word yet on what he might be doing at Riot Games, but one would assume it would be something related to League of Legends in some shape or form.
