I would've upgraded SGnG in a second. :/

I don't think I ever bought Super Ghouls & Ghosts on the Wii, though I was always somewhat interested. With save states on Wii U I'd definitely cough up the $8.

For what its worth, the official Nintendo of America Wii U Virtual Console page has Xevious listed, no date though: http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu/downloads/virtual-console
