Nintendo reveals exact dates for Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campaign games

Today, Nintendo released the schedule for the discount promotion:

February 20: F-Zero (SNES)
March 20: Punch-Out!!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES)
April 17: Kirby's Adventure (NES)
May 15: Super Metroid (SNES)
June 12: Yoshi (NES)
July 15: Donkey Kong (NES)

The Virtual Console doesn't officially launch on the Wii U until this spring, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct event last week.

The story is too old to be commented.

The fact that they're still charging us for SNES and NES games is just sad... Not sure what kind of promotion is to be found in offering up a 25 year old game for free every month.

sloth33951273d ago

it's not sad it shows how good the games are and most likely you never played any or you would know that

PopRocks3591273d ago

It's funny you say that because in the eyes of many older gamers, these 25 year old games hold up much better than many modern games.

These sales are also fairly inexpensive too. Unless you really feel the need to complain about paying $.30.

MelonSaurus1272d ago

I've played nearly all of them. They're 25 years old and can still cost $5 - $8.

It isn't sad at all. It is smart and isn't that costly on the consumer. What would be smarter is move these games to the mobile market but Nintendo are being stubborn on that one

since when did michael patcher make a N4G account?

animegamingnerd1272d ago

yeah because buy a old school game for adults to get a nostalgic experience and showing their kids what they grew up playing is totally greedy

Fixay1272d ago

The fact that these games are still supported is remarkable! A positive in my eyes

You're paying $2.10 for an entire collection of classic games, how is that sad? Plus each are Gamepad and Miiverse accessible.
