Last week Nintendo announced the Wii U Virtual Console service would be launching this week after the system update takes place. Nintendo of America’s Facebook page has been promoting the release of the Virtual Console which will take place on Tuesday April 22nd. I guess that also means the system update will happen by then if it hasn’t already. The image above was posted on Sunday and many of the online features of the Wii U and the 3DS are down today in preparation for the update.
Update: Hopes could be dashed as it appears that the Virtual Console will not be launching on Tuesday as had been thought. Much of the evidence pointing to this has been removed from their sources and it now appears that we may just be getting an official announcement of the games that will be available with the launch of the VC.
