Following the recent sudden appearance of an official website for the North American version of Minish Cap on the Wii U Virtual Console, the digital release has now been confirmed to launch in Europe next week.

Nintendo of Europe tweeted that the game will launch on the eShop on May 29.

We have no word on the North American release date yet. It is worth noting, however, that when A Link to the Past hit the European eShop, the US version followed seven weeks later. If a similar release pattern applies to Minish Cap, then Americans may also have the chance to go on a miniature adventure on a GamePad fairly soon.

    Vaati confirmed for Hyrule Warriors.

      When and how?

      • JaidynReiman

        I was joking. Minish Cap being re-released, that must mean something, so Vaati confirmed for Hyrule Warriors. 😛

        • True Davad

          Okay sorry didn’t realize you were joking. I personally think Vaati should reappear, he is the only recurring main Zelda villain besides Ganondorf. And I think his Minich Cap appearance was epic. I was disappointed that you never fought his sorcerer form…

          • JaidynReiman

            Vaati is a safe bet. He’s not confirmed, but he’s a shoe-in. I bet a lot of other minor villains will be represented as well such as Agahnim, Veran, Onox, Ghirahim, etc., plus a large variety of heroic characters like the OOT Sages, Malon, perhaps Telma’s band from TP, Groose, etc.

            Yep, this very game is the excuse to throw in every Zelda character that people wanted to see in Smash Bros without having to about messing up the game. Let’s see if I can play as ERROR!

          • JaidynReiman

            I couldn’t think of any notable characters from the original two games from the original four… then I suddenly thought “why not throw Error in for laughs?!” That would be so hilarious, I’d support that. (I could also see them creating a character called Kasuto.)

          • CEObrainz

            How about a cameo from the old man in the original game? That would be pretty cool to see as well. Kasuto may even be used in Zelda U….you never know….

          • JaidynReiman

            Perhaps.

  • Trinosaur

    Pretty cool! I’m a little surprised they aren’t putting in on the 3DS e-shop, but with the way Wii-U sales are going, I can understand why.

    Would have been nice if Vaati for a locked character for SSB4
