Download two classic games

Nintendo is adding two classics to its Wii U downloadable line-up tomorrow: Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 and Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbados' Treasure.

The Game Boy Advance and Wii titles, respectively, will be available for download in North America starting tomorrow, Jan. 21. Super Mario Advance 4 will cost $7.99 and include its e-Reader-exclusive levels, while Zack and Wiki can be purchased for $19.99.

Super Mario Advance 4 joins a fairly robust group of Game Boy Advance games offered on the Wii U Virtual Console. Zack and Wiki, however, marks just one of nine Wii games up for download.

Unlike Virtual Console titles, Wii games run natively on Wii U hardware, as opposed to through emulation. The Wii U also offers backward compatibility for Wii games. Both types of downloads, however, offer the option of off-screen play with the GamePad.

Last week, Nintendo added GBA title Metroid: Zero Mission to the Virtual Console. The last Wii game introduced to the American eShop was Super Mario Galaxy back in December.
