Super Mario Galaxy has been rated for Wii U by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) it has been reported by VG24/7, hinting that a release may be coming soon on the Virtual Console.
Super Mario Galaxy has been unavailable on the Virtual Console despite it’s successor, Super Mario Galaxy 2 being available for purchase. The first entry in the series is available via Virtual Console in Japan, so it only makes sense for Nintendo to bring one of their most-loved titles out in the West too.
The ESRB listing which can be seen below originally only listed Wii but now also lists Wii U.
There has been no official word from Nintendo surrounding the game’s release but we’ll keep you updated if the situation changes.
