Super Mario Galaxy Rated for Wii U Virtual Console by ESRB

Super Mario Galaxy has been one of the popular spin offs of the franchise and even though it was originally released to the Wii, Nintendo considers it relevant these days too.

This was evidenced by an ESRB rating for the game for both the Wii and the Wii U version that has been spotted very recently.

Interestingly for the North American fans of the series, this might mean that they will be able to play the original game in the series now.

It is being speculated that this will not be an HD version of the game or a remake as some would expect. It is more probable, instead, that the game will be made available for the Nintendo Wii U owners through the Virtual Console eShop.

Sadly, the ESRB rating for Super Mario Galaxy does not give away anything else other than an “E” rating suggesting that the game is suitable for everyone.

Nintendo has previously released Super Mario Galaxy 2 in the North American region, but for some unknown reason they decided to avoid doing the same for the first game in the series.

Some of the fans are speculating that this means we will have to buy a Wiimote to play the game, but of course it will be a long shot to predict something like that even before the developers have confirmed that the game is coming to the Wii U in the North American region.

Super Mario Galaxy originally came out in November 2007 for the Wii.
