Nintendo of Europe have announced that Star Fox 64 will be released on Wii U Virtual Console this Thursday (March 24).
It appears that Star Fox 64 is only seeing release in Europe at the moment, with no announcement made for release in other territories. The game will receive a special introductory discount, with buyers getting 50% off until April 21 so if you’re thinking about trying out the series’ signature space combat before Star Fox Zero lands later this year, you’re best to take advantage of this deal.

It should be noted that Nintendo of Europe have referred to it as Star Fox 64, not its original European name of Lylat Wars which means the re-release could be the U.S. version of the game.
As previously mentioned, you’ll be able to pick up Star Fox 64 on Wii U this coming Thursday.
