Nintendo has revealed that the SNES launch title Pilotwings is coming to the North American Wii U Virtual Console on July 4th. According to the official detail page, the classic flight simulator will be priced at $7.99. Those who purchased it on the Wii Virtual Console can upgrade for just $1.50, allowing them to play solely on the GamePad along with all of the other standard features of the re-releases.
As you may already know, the game allows players to fly a variety of different aircraft including a light plane, hang glider and rocket belt. There is also plenty of sky diving as well. While it may look somewhat dated now, the graphics were impressive at the time. You can read more about Pilotwings via the source link below. Gameplay video after the break.
