Nintendo brings original Wii titles to Wii U from $13

Nintendo today announced that it will be bringing classic Wii titles to the Wii U as digital downloads. As of today, the critically acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy 2 is available for download for an introductory price of AUD$13. This will increase to AUD$26 after the title's first week of availability. Other titles to be released in January include retro-platformer Donkey Kong Country Returns on the 23rd and the hard-to-find Metroid Prime Trilogy on the 30th. Both will use the same pricing structure as Super Mario Galaxy 2. These three titles will all require a Wiimote and Nunchuck combo to play. 

Future Wii titles set to receive a Wii U release include Kirby's Adventure Wii, Pandora's Tower, Punch-Out and Sin & Punishment: Successor of the Skies.

While the Wii U is able to output at high definition resolutions, gaming publication 8-Worlds News claims the downloadable Wii titles will only run at their original standard definition resolution.
