Rumours that suggested that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD was on the horizon were enough to send tongues wagging this week, and now hackers have unearthed Nintendo eShop scripts that have revealed games destined for Wii U’s Virtual Console service.

It’s a rather extensive list, spanning NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS and Wii releases, with Game Boy Advance presenting the largest share. Titles range from Metroid: Other M to Mario Strikers Super Charged Football, with The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, Kirby and Fire Emblem all present.
