    • Tim van Broekhoven

  • Jack5221

    Original Metroid! Cant wait to play it again, its been a VERY long time since I played that game.

    • Agent721

      And its extra cheap for those of us who bought it on the wii!

  • kutral

    and again no Dungeons & Dragons : Chronicles of Mystara, c´mon Nintendo. Ill buy it on PSN :/

    3 weeks of waiting and still nothing, at least Pikmin 3 is near 😀

  • Fred

    What is Turbo: Super Stunt Squad?

    • kenny Johnson

      a movie tie-in game for the new DW movie.

      • Fred

        Good to know thanks for the info

  • Fred

    Wait I thought Donkey Kong was going to be 30 cents when it came out?

    • kenny Johnson

      I suspect it will be… I think Ashley just put the standard NES price. It’s still listed as a 30 cent promotion: http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu/downloads/famicom-30/

    • Jon

      it’s not the 15th yet……

      • Fred

        you’re right that’s not till the 15th. I guess I’ll buy it on the 15th thanks

  • Ballzbeard

    Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara when?

    • Michael DeVore

      Capcom is doing layoffs. I don’t like Mystara not being on today’s title releases. Do we know why the game hasn’t been released, and do we know who is putting the final touches on it. If they’re just holding back till they think it will sell well we could see it. If they haven’t finished, and layed off the team bringing it over then there could be a problem.

      • Elem187

        From what Capcom has said that it was handed over to Nintendo for certification, so its whenever Nintendo is done certifying it.

      • Guest

        The game was released on all of the other consoles already on June 18th. The reason they haven’t released it is because they are waiting for Nintendo.

        • nin-10-doughfan

          maybe that is why there is not that much third party games for nintendo?

  • dan beha

    Who in there right mind would pay 39 95 for turbo when they can download it for free on any android or iphone ? Seriously Nintendo !

    • kenny Johnson

      Because it’s not the same game!

      • dan beha

        Ooh right my bad , , still wouldn’t buy it

    • kenny Johnson

      And this is multi-platform at the same price-point — so not “Seriously Nintendo.”

  • disqus_sgtob6da3X

    Picking up SMT VI for the 3ds for that $30 promo coming. Already pre-order it and I waiting for Pikimin 3, M&L Dream team, and Luigi u. Going to be awesome Summer.

  • LopsidedPasta

    Wait… did I miss the DK 30 cent deal?

    • Daniel Brown

      That’s on the 15th.

      • LopsidedPasta


  • Downloaded both Zen Star Wars Pinball and Metroid today…

    • Chris Heskin

      Nice! i took advantage of the club nintendo promo for metroid II last month. Stoked to revisit Samus’ past.

  • Ducked

    I want a Nintendo 64 and GameCube virtual console so bad! I hope we get one around fall this year, or spring 2014. The Wii U could use it.

    • Felix

      maybe buy a nintendo 64, which is not 400$ ? or just a PC emulator?


      • Ducked

        Uh Why?

        Do you know how much money Nintendo could make? And how happy Wii U owners would be if they could easily download Nintendo 64 and GameCube games on there Wii U console for $5-$10 bucks?

        • Felix

          i dont know you, but i wont be happy spending 400$ in a “next”-gen console to play games 15 years old.

          as i said in other posts, im so tired of this. and what a bad thing, people want this after all. nice 400$ usage…

          • Ducked

            Oh god really? It would just be to play for the side. It’s a freaking addition. And it’s $350, not $400.

            Know you’re facts.

          • Felix

            controllers are 70$ xD

          • Fred

            It comes with the Gamepad for free. Thats all you need

          • Ducked

            $70? What’s wrong with you…

          • Then don’t. Some people appreciate being able to play games from past consoles all on one new console. I guess that is why so many games are remade from the past for modern consoles. Microsoft, Sony, and PC does this too.

      • Emulators are illegal unless you have the original game and made the ROM or game dump yourself. Also it is nice to not have all those devices to plug into your TV and take up space around your TVs.


      • 00EpicGamer00

        Wow…You serious? First of all Nintendo 64’s aren’t available anymore, you can only purchase them from online sites like Ebay, but you aren’t guaranteed that the product will work, since it’s been used. Second of all the Wii U is NOT $400, it’s $350. Third of all, have you actually tried playing N64 games on a PC? It’s VERY difficult, especially if you’re playing huge games like DK64. Arrow keys just do not work for games like that.

        • Luffy

          wii u start at 300$

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I know, but more people are going to buy the 350 one…Since it IS a better deal.

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    That’s nice having the original Metroid up for download and all, But I’m gonna wait for the GBA remake: Metroid Zero Mission.

  • Josh

    Time to release the old school Donkey Kong Country games again.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Yeah, for some reason they all dissapeared from the Wii virtual console? Now they HAVE to come to Wii U…

  • Kmac

    More first party games yaaa! -____-

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Will be downloading metroid IEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
