The lights are on
The Wii U's virtual console offerings might be very slim at the moment, but that doesn't mean there aren't some gems available. Starting today, Super Metroid has been given a significant price drop.
Samus Aran's Super Nintendo adventure can be yours for only $.30. Why such an odd price? The promotions, which have been running since January, are in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the original Famicom.
It's hard to say no to such a great game at an affordable price. If you've never played Super Metroid and want to understand our enthusiasm, you can always see it in action in a recent episode of Super Replay.

Wow, that is one hell of a deal!
It's games like these that convince me to keep putting up with Nintendo's other crap........
It is smart move on Nintendo's part to make the virtual console prices so low.
Wow, I wish I had a Wii U just for this one deal.
Super Metroid is one of the best games ever.
Everyone who owns a Wii U should purchase this game. It's one of the greatest games of all time.
This is the closest thing to an anniversary that Metroid has received. For shame Nintendo.
Why wont they port it to the 3ds...
heck yeah, I am all over this.
Well, time to fix this gaping hole in my playlist. Just have to get back from vacation...
Just downloaded. I can't wait to get home from work to play this.
If only I had a Wii U...
thank you for the heads up, mike. i rarely turn on my wii-u, so i may have missed this.
THANK YOU for finally announcing one of these! The most important one at least needed recognition. I missed F-Zero because no one reminded me on any of the sites I frequent.
One of the best(some would THE best)games ever for 30 pennies? Possibly the greatest deal ever
Why don't they bring this to the 3ds virtual console?
