Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Wii U VC

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky are all coming to the Wii U Virtual Console this Thursday.

Red Rescue Team originally launched on the GBA back in 2005. It was accompanied by Blue Rescue Team, which came out for the DS. Both games were mostly identical in terms of story and gameplay, but the DS version made use of the then-new dual-screen layout.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky is the enhanced version of the Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness pair of DS Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. It added new playable characters, expanded on the original story and included more dungeons.

Nintendo did not announce prices for the games, but general pricing for the Virtual Console is $9.99 for DS games and $7.99 for GBA titles.

Due to difficulties acquiring necessary parts, Nintendo Japan will discontinue repair services for the original DS (model NTR-001) on April 30 or until their repair supplies run out, whichever comes first.

The parts issue appears to only affect the original DS, as the company’s official statement says that they will continue to accept repairs for the DS Lite (USG-001), DSi (TWL-001), and DSi LL (UTL-001).
