Here’s what our anonymous source had to say.

“I’m amazed they didn’t do it sooner. People love all those classic Nintendo games. What better way to help sell a few units of Wii U than to make the entire back catalogue available?” It’s the sort of move that Nintendo need to be making right now . “They’re in a lot of trouble as far as the future of their consoles go.

What games can we expect to see?

“They’ll release their back catalogue in parts. To help boost sales of Wii U you can expect to see all Mario games and Zelda games, as well as some other classics too.”
