Super Mario Galaxy Has Been Rated By The ESRB For Wii U

It looks like we might soon be able to play the original Super Mario Galaxy on Wii U. The 3D platformer has been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) for its upcoming re-release through the console’s Virtual Console. The game launched via the service in Japan last May and its fantastic sequel, Super Mario Galaxy 2, has been available for purchase on Wii U since January.



    1. It’s a Virtual Console game that has already been out in Japan…. We’re not getting “another port”, we’re getting a port that already exists…

    2. Galaxy 3 wont ever happen, get that through your fucking skull. Each console has it’s Mario style, N64 had Mario 64, Gamecube had Sunshine, Wii had Galaxy, Wii U had 3D World. Galaxy is done and never coming back.

      1. 3D World was a sequel to 3D Land on 3DS. And Galaxy, although both were on Wii, did receive a sequel. I don’t think Nintendo operates exclusively on that rule that you apparently take so seriously.

  1. Wii games are fine and dandy…..but you’d think they’d be attracting a wider market if they ported more GC and N64 titles that are a pain in the ass to find nowadays.

  2. It does seem a bit daft to have a virtual console game you can already play the physical copy of. I too would like to see more GameCube & N64 games as they are not physical compatible with the console and fans are more likely to purchase them than games (on Wii) they can pick up 3 for 2 at their local GAME store.

  3. I only want Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber in my virtual console, c’mon Nintendo and Atlus! Give it to me!

    Games like Super Mario Galaxy that you can still find today for around 50 bucks should not be getting a virtual console release on Wii U. Games like Metroid Prime Trilogy or Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, on the other hand… Of course, MPT already got it’s Wii U digital release. Just need Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem! Then again, I’d rather Eternal Darkness get an HD treatment with updated graphics.
