Rumour: Metroid Blasting Onto The Wii U Virtual Console Next Week

Nintendo Life: ''Super Metroid was made available to Wii U owners for a measly 30c/30p earlier in the year as part of the Super Famicom 30th Anniversary celebrations and many people snapped it up straight away.

The Super Nintendo classic was the home console successor to the popular NES title Metroid, which looks set to be making an appearance on the North American Wii U Virtual Console next week - if Nintendo's website is to be believed.'' (Super Metroid, Virtual Console, Wii U)

...Could someone translate the article for me? I got a WiiU last week, and Super Metroid was the first game I bought for it. If it's already on the virtual console service, how it it be coming next week?

Shouldn't we be getting Final Fantasy III and/or Secret of Mana and/or Breath of Fire II?

the VC is great on the wii, and i think it'll be better on wii u with the inclusion of gamecube games. in my opinion it had the best catalog of old games vs the 360 and ps3. with all the n64 and snes games the other 2 couldn't get.

This is one of the hardest games I've ever played. The first run through is brutal.
