Super Metroid for $0.30 in May

Hot off the presses: at this morning's Nintendo Direct, Iwata gave us a little taste of what's to come in the future for WiiU. New games announced including a yarn-based Yoshi platformer, a new action-RPG title by MonolithSoft, new 3D Mario, new Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD Remake. You can watch the whole recording right here.

A small bit of Metroid news however, is that Super Metroid will be sold on the WiiU Virtual Console in the month of May due to the celebration of the Famicom's 30th anniversary. Each month we will see a different Virtual Console game sold for $0.30, and you have 30 days to pick it up at that price. (No idea why they chose Super Metroid over the original, since they're celebrating the Famicom and not the Super Famicom, but we won't look a gift Epona in the mouth.) We will remind you again come this May for those who forget!
