Super Metroid available on the Wii U eShop May 15th for $0.30

Nickerous writes, "The SNES classic, Super Metroid, will be available on the Nintendo Wii U eShop tomorrow, May 15th, for the bargain price of 30 cents. When Nintendo announced the Famicom 30th Anniversary line up of games for the Wii U Virtual Console, many gamers (including me) immediately targeted Super Metroid for download." (Retro, Super Metroid, Wii U)

Every Wii U owner should take the paltry dive and show Nintendo that this is what we want. MOAR METROYD.

Gonna grab this later but a bit bummed that I have to add a minimum of £10 to grab a 30p game. I'll use the credit in the future some time but it's still frustrating.

I bought F-Zero in February on the Wii U eShop for 30p without needing to buy £10 of credit; I was able to just charge the 30p straight to my credit card.

I've never had credit on my Wii U account and F-Zero is the only game I've bought on the eShop.

I plan to do the same with Super Metroid.

You won't have to do that if you use a credit card or laser/debit card.
