Sorry to steal your catch phrase, Concelmo.
I'm sure many others probably already know, or at least figured that Nintendo was waiting to release Super Metroid around the same time as Metroid Prime 3 on the Wii, and that's now been confirmed by the news on the Wii Shop channel of all places.
The detail their 'Month of Metroid' as follows: The Metroid Prime 3 preview channel download for WiiWare last week, the original Metroid download for the Virtual Console this week (Aug 13th) and the über-hotness that was, is and will be Super Metroid for download on the Virtual Console next week (Monday August 20th)!
Oh, and Prime 3 the week after that, of course. But come on, we'll all still be playing good old Metroid 3 then, right?
On a personal note, I had just returned from my local EBGames after purchasing a new Wii Points card, because I suspected
that this was going to happen, when I found this tidbit of newsgasm. Vindication never felt so good.
PS - Do you think I'm too excited about this?
