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

I have to agree, it does look like the European Super Mario World cartridge.

I wouldn't question it. At 30 cents, Super Metroid is a steal!

Because Super Metroid is one of the best games ever created.


30cents for this Masterpiece? It's the deal of the century.

We also get F-Zero and Japan gets those two plus Mother 2 (we get Punch Out in its place).

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


If you need save states in Super Metroid, you suck at Super Metroid.

While that is true I for one like that they are adding features such as this. If i need to stop playing for whatever reason I can just use the save state feature. Of course people can abuse it to help them win but that is a personal choice.

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


Second best,what do you consider the best?

Probably because the original Metroid has aged terribly. Going back to it after playing other 2D entries in the series makes it feel practically unplayable.
