I noticed that deals tab, but couldn't tell what their normal price was.

If I buy these and my WiiU breaks, will I be able to get them on a new WiiU or would they be lost forever like games bought on the Wii?

If your Wii U breaks and you send it to Nintendo and they can't fix it,they will transfer them for you.

Thanks Frisky for posting. Hope they give enough deals in the eShop to justify a new deals thread. Little Inferno looks interesting but don't think I wanna drop $10 on it.

Really contemplating buying MSF. I liked it on 3DS and couldn't justify the price, but at this price it seems pretty nice as my Wii U game selection is limited at the moment.

do it. Great game, great music and charming art work.
yes, stages are meant to be beaten in 1-2 minutes but it often takes 10 min per stage to figure out how to accomplish that.

I've logged 2 hours in and i've only beat 11 of 21 regular stages, only hit par time on one stage, and there are 7 extra stages after beating the original 21.

Well worth $7 IMO.

AND it supports gamepad only gameplay so there's another reason to grab it!

Bumping this up since the new Nintendo Direct announced monthly sales of Virtual Console games for Wii U leading up to and after their launch with a spring update:

Virtual Console for Wii U: A spring system update will add Virtual Console software to the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. The service will launch right after the spring update and will include a selection of NES and Super NES games, with Game Boy Advance games to be added in the future. The prices for NES and Super NES Virtual Console games for Wii U will be the same as they were for the Virtual Console on Wii. People who have already purchased the Wii version of a certain NES or Super NES Virtual Console game and transferred it to their Wii U console can buy the enhanced Wii U version of the same game for the reduced price of $1 for NES games and $1.50 for Super NES games.

Classic Games for 30 Cents! To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of the Famicom in Japan (which was known as the NES in the United States), Nintendo is making one NES or Super NES game available each month now through July at the anniversary price of just 30 cents. Each game will be available at that price for 30 days, and the first is the NES game Balloon Fight, which is now available in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U.

From Balloon Fight on, these are the future $0.30 games until July:

February - F-Zero
March - Punch Out! Featuring Mr. Dream
April - Kirby's Adventure
May - Super Metroid
June - Yoshi
July - Donkey Kong

The only regular game on sale right now is Little Inferno for one more week, so get that if you're interested.

F-Zero, Punch-Out, and Super Metroid for under $1 sounds pretty good to me. Too bad we don't have Earthbound like Japan though - hopefully it's coming here for the full $8 price though.

What's the deal with previous Wii Virtual Console purchases--can they get transferred to the Wii U?

They'll show up in Wii mode. To get them on the Wii U menu, it's $1 NES or $1.50 SNES. Still no word on other consoles.

I wonder what game they mean by with "Yoshi". Is that going to be Yoshi's Island (heck yeah!) of Yoshi's Cookie (30 cent is too much for that garbage)?

Oh. That one. Well, it *might* be worth 30 cents. Maybe. I would prefer Tetris Attack or Wario's Woods (strangely addictive).

The rest are great games.

Yes, they can be transferred and played on the Wii channel

If you choose to upgrade them to play on the Wii U there's going to be an added fee to make that possible. Right now there's $1 (NES) and $1.50 (SNES) per game and as more games are able to be transferred you'll find larger prices as you go up the console food chain.

Thanks for the responses :applause:

They're actually wrong about one aspect. You're not paying to transfer the Wii version to the Wii U, but you get a discount on the Wii U version if you've already purchased that game on Wii.

This is the actual PR announcement that Nintendo made about it:

Virtual Console for Wii U: A spring system update will add Virtual Console software to the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. The service will launch right after the spring update and will include a selection of NES and Super NES games, with Game Boy Advance games to be added in the future. The prices for NES and Super NES Virtual Console games for Wii U will be the same as they were for the Virtual Console on Wii. People who have already purchased the Wii version of a certain NES or Super NES Virtual Console game and transferred it to their Wii U console can buy the enhanced Wii U version of the same game for the reduced price of $1 for NES games and $1.50 for Super NES games.

Wish I had an extra external hard drive. I'd consider picking up Assassins Creed 3.
