Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Trilogy Joins Wii U Virtual Console this Week
Pokémon’s Virtual Console presence will grow exponentially when the first three Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games launch for the Wii U service in North America this Thursday.
Nintendo announced the news earlier today, revealing that the original DS & GBA titles – Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team & Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team – as well as their DS only sequel, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, will all be included with this week’s eShop update. Compared to the rest of the world, North America’s Wii U Virtual Console has seen a light amount of Pokémon content, with the only re-release so far being the 2003 Gameboy Advance title Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire.
Now that the Poké-floodgates are slowly opening on the digital side, Nintendo has promised that more Pokémon games are on the way, so keep a lookout for those when they launch on Virtual Console throughout the summer.
