Now we have exact dates rather than windows


This whole "Virtual Console 30th Anniversary" thing has been a bit confusing for all of us. So here's the scoop now that the dust has settled: on certain dates this year, you'll have the opportunity to download select games on the Wii U eShop for 30 cents, for a limited time.

That's it. There's no catch, it's just a promotion to get people into the eShop -- like a virtual doorbuster sale.

It's not a "trial" version of the game that ends after 30 days -- you just pay the 30 cents and you get to keep it. All Wii U Virtual Console games have full GamePad remote play support, and the ability to fully customize your controls.

With that said, Nintendo has revealed the full list of exact dates for all of the planned games, so make sure you bookmark this page as a reference!

Balloon Fight (NES): Wed, 1/23 to Thu, 2/21

F-Zero (SNES): Wed, 2/20 to Thu, 3/21

Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES): Wed, 3/20 to Thu, 4/18

Kirby's Adventure (NES): Wed, 4/17 to Thu, 5/16

Super Metroid (SNES): Wed, 5/15 to Thu, 6/13

Yoshi (NES): Wed, 6/12 to Thu, 7/11

Donkey Kong (NES): Mon, 7/15 to Tue, 8/13

Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Donkey Kong Country Returns was one of my favorite platformers of the last generation. It had charm, challenge, and most importantly -- it was a ton of fun. But one of my only hang-ups with the Wii version was the lack o...more

DKC: Tropical Freeze has such charming idle animations

Idle animations -- or should I say good idle animations -- happen infrequently enough that I'm usually caught off guard when I happen to leave my character waiting around. I shouldn't be surprised to see that Donkey Kong Cou...more

The DKC: Tropical Freeze video to see above all others

In the months since it was first announced, I have warmed up to Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze considerably. Part of my initial reaction stems from disappointment over Retro Studios not getting back to Metroid Prime, b...more
