It's always exciting when a beloved classic becomes available for a fresh audience, and now gamers will get another chance to experience Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars when it releases on the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe on December 24th. This is the collaboration between Nintendo and Squaresoft that later influenced the Paper Mario and Mario and Luigi franchises. There's no word yet on a North American release, but here's hoping it isn't far behind.

In other Virtual Console news, Final Fantasy VI Advance is making its way to the Japanese Virtual Console on December 22nd. This version of the game features slightly enhanced visuals (that actually still look like the original SNES sprites, unlike the mobile version), new content, and a refined translation. It's possibly the best version of the game, so hopefully that, too, comes westward.
