why is super metroid being released on WiiU VC for the NES anniversary?

#1csalvi42Posted 1/27/2013 11:42:54 PM
I am confused whether they meant super metroid or just the original metroid because it would make much more sense in the latter scenario. None of the other games listed are from the snes....

Isn't F-Zero being released for it too?

I think they mentioned that the deal was for the "Famicom" brand ("NES" brand) in general. Which would include the Super Famicom.

ok well people would be crazy to not pick up super metroid for 30c if thats the case, especially with save states!

I remember when we had savestates on the Snes hardware.

30 cent for the second best game on the SNES and one of the 10 best games ever, i am not going to argue with that

At least it will only cost you $.30 instead of $1.50 if you already own it.

i'm aware of that, but it sure doesn't look like a famicom cart to me. as far as i can tell, a lot of sfc carts don't have coloured borders on the sides, most pal snes games have "nintendo," the snes logo and "SNES" in the same column on the left, whereas sfc just throws them in different places on each game. so going by that, i'm certain thats a pal snes game, and the colored sides looks like mario world to me.
