As reported, this Monday sees the release of Super Metroid (Super NES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points) for Nintendo's virtual console. Easily one of the greats among a solid Super NES library, the game is worth at least double the price Nintendo is charing for admission. I seem to recall paying $60 for this game, and that seemed like a bargain at the time.
Joining Samus Aran this week will be Joe Musashi (who has the best name for a ninja ... ever) in Shinobi III: Return to the Ninja Master (Sega Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points), and Neutopia (TurboGrafx-16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points), a game that was clearly modeled after Nintendo's popular Legend of Zelda.
All in all, a pretty solid week, and probably the first time in awhile I've wanted to blow points on all of the games. What say you, Destructoid readers? Press release after the jump.
