...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.
