The NES version of Ghosts 'n Goblins was added on Virtual Console in EU for €4.99 (confirmed for Thursday for US for $4.99), and they have a deal where you can grab it for half the price at €2.49 if you buy or already own Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts until June 6th. Considering we've had two VC deals weekly in a row, I'm betting that we'll get the deal later this week.

The developer of Toki Tori 2 just tweeted that the game will get a price drop tomorrow. They didn't mention what the new price would be.

Damn I upgraded my Kirby Superstar and would love to purchase Kirby's Dream Land 3 and get a free Kirby game. Problem is I hate Kirby's Dream Course. I would have liked to see Kirby's Avalanche included. If I want to play some sort of weird putt putt golf I'll stick to my PS1 Rugrats game!


Yeah, I "tried out" the other two games and it was clear why they did this promotion.

So we got a slightly different deal than Europe. If you get either Mega Man X or Ghosts 'n Goblins (NES), you can get the other game for 1/2 off. So if you get GnG, MMX will be $4 and if you get MMX, GnG will be $2.50. If you want to make the most of this, I'd suggest getting GnG and then getting MMX for 1/2 off since you're saving $4 instead of $2.50.

Also, select Just Dance 4 DLC is on sale for 30% off. You can see a list of the songs discounted here.

I meant to ask this last week but never got around to it, but does buying the "upgrade" from Wii VC to Wii U qualify you for these promotions? Like if I owned Ghosts and Goblins on my Wii VC, could I pay the $1 to get the Wii U version and then get Mega Man for half off? I haven't had this situation come up yet, but with the way Nintendo are throwing out these (unprecedented) VC deals, I imagine it won't be long before it does.

Yes, absolutely (unless they changed it since last week). They actually say that in the description of the deal usually (they did last week). That's the only way getting MMX first would be a better deal (if you had MMX to upgrade for Wii and not GG). What happens is when you see a game you have already on Wii in the WiiU store it will show the $1/$1.50 price instead of the regular price. When you buy the requisite triggers, the other item's prices adjust automatically as well.

For example, I already had Kirby Super Star (bought it with Club points a while back), so it showed up as $1.50, Dreamland 3 and Dream Course were $7.99. I bought SS for $1.50 and DL3 for $7.99 and then Dream Course had a price of $0.

Yes, each week's VC deal counts if you "upgrade" your Wii version of a VC game to the Wii U version with Off-TV Play, Miiverse, custom controls, etc.

Nice to know, thanks! Now I regret not taking advantage of Kirby last week. I already had Super Star and Dreamland 3, so I could have gotten all 3 of them for $3. Ah well, sounds like I'm not missing much with Dream Course.

Quite the contrary - anybody who doesn't like Dream Course is certified crazy. I'd even go as far as to say it's my favorite Kirby game. Well, either it or Super Star. It's different, but it's *really* good.

It's a fantastic puzzle platformer that incorporates Metroidvania-style elements into the structure of its campaign.

I went ahead and bought the Virtual Console deal for this week. I like the fact that they are making it so that the discount works in both directions if you have at least one of the titles. Although they have not done a deal yet where I had bought a game previously on the Wii Virtual Console, it's nice to know we are eligible for the deal after a reasonable Wii U upgrade price.

On a side note, the original Ghosts 'N Goblins is brutally hard. I expected as much since I have played Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts, but the reality of it can still slap you in the face. It is like playing a 8-Bit Dark Souls.

So about that current VC deal...

I owned both Megaman X and Ghosts N' Goblins on VC so both are listed in the store at their discounted prices. In an effort to save $.75, I bought GnG first at $1.00. Then I exited all the way back out and went to buy MMX. No discount. :/

I wound up buying it as well, but I'm sort of bummed that it didn't work out perfectly after the Kirby one did (owned Kirby Superstar, paid full price for Kirby 3, got Kirby Golf free).

Just be aware that if you own both titles, buy MMX first and hopefully get the $.50 off GnG.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I wonder if you didn't get the discount due to the fact you already technically owned both games already. I know it works if you own one & upgrade.

Looks like the new sale for this week is Trine 2 for $9.99. Good price for an awesome game (though this has been on sale a lot since Wii U's launch, not sure if this is the cheapest). Yoshi for $0.30 is also being "added" today, but you won't be able to pick it up till Tuesday (when the Metroid sale ends).

Awesome... I was pissed when I missed the last $9.99 Trine deal by an hour or two. I'm happy that didn't take too long to come back around.

 

Plus, I think it'll get me enough points for $5 from the DDP, which helps out with Luigi. Boom.
