No 3DS love?

for the 30 cents do you get the game permanently? They aren't like trial versions or anything like that right?

If so, consider me sold for February (F-Zero) and May (Super Metroid).

We believe you get to keep the full game, but we will update the article if we learn anything new

sorry
30 day trials.

That's not true, these titles are available for 30 cents for 30 days. After the 30 days are up, the titles will go back to their original pricing on the eShop.

The campaign itself is being called a "trial" because the Virtual Console isn't available on the Wii U yet.

30 cent for 30 days then back to regular price

Correct, the trial wordage related to this being a trial promotion. Any title that is purchased for the 30 cent price will remain on your system after the 30 day deal is over.

Yup... I've just bought Balloon Fight and at 30p per game I doubt I'll be able to resist the rest.

Or you could just get one of the endless emulators and games online..

30 cents for 30 days in theory is great but honestly it's not.

Why not release it FREE for 30 days, then charge for it.. why is everything nowadays nickel and diming..

wtf dude.. 30 cents is like "free".. if you feel butt hurt because of 30 cents on a classic NES game, yea then something has got to be wrong with you.
