Spent so much time in my youth with solomons key. Don't think I could put myself through it again. Really enjoyed the game but played it so much that even now the music and sounds are still fresh in my head.

Updated original post. Capcom are releasing two more games this month. Nintendo will make an announcement tomorrow regarding 16th May titles. Will should see at least one more title this week. Hopefully Street Fighter II!!!

Also note Super Metriod will be released Wednesday for 30p!!

Awesome price. Shame I missed F-Zero for 30p, won't be paying pull price. I'll be downloading most of the games I owned on the Wii. I doubt we'll see many different titles from the Wii.

Apparently North America are getting Super Mario Bros 2 on Thursday.

Yeah, think it did. About A4 size IIRC.
How do you get it for 30p?
Read orginal post mate. Nintendo are running a promotion where they are selling certain Virtual Console titles at 30p. One per month. Super Metriod is released on Wednesday for a month. Then it will go to full price

Sorry, I meant, literally how do I get it? Do I need to buy points or something and add them to an account? Can I just buy single games with a credit/debit card?

you can buy the game for 30p with a credit/debit card. That's how I've been buying my ones.

Yeah, you can either just use the correct amount, or put in what you want, in the "wallet", for future purchases.

Or you can use Club Nintendo scratch cards, save up them, buy them from Club Nintendo's area, and buy their virtual points to use, in the e-shop.

Have they started doing points for wii u and 3ds now.
I think so, I transferred about 400 over, from my Wii.
It said during the transfer, that a maximum of 10,000 could be stored.

EDIT: might have to check..they might only be used in Wii Mode..
In Japan, I know they are converted to real currency or something like that, for use on WiiU e-shop.

Apparantly Super Metroid is going to be 50Hz version.

Wii U Virtual Console
Super Mario Bros. 2 (Nintendo, €4.99 / £3.49) — This is the US version of the game, with a 60Hz refresh rate. As is well known now, when it comes to the first Super Mario sequel, the West got an entirely different deal than those in Japan. Despite its style being an oddity in the series, this is still a lot of fun and, arguably, provides a template for how Mario can shake things up in the future. Running and jumping is still there, but some levels take plenty of exploring to figure out, while the four playable characters — each with different abilities — and the enemy tossing mechanics stand up rather well. We'll be adventuring through this again on Wii U, but in the meantime you can check out our Wii Virtual Console Super Mario Bros. 2 review.

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Capcom, €7.99 / £5.49) — This is the US version of the game, with a 60Hz refresh rate. Capcom's recent promise of 16-bit goodness on the Wii U begins here, with this classic and gruelling action game ready to test your skills and patience in the best possible way. With terrific sprite graphics and classic music to help you along, we suspect this one will make liberal use of the Wii U save state and restore point functionality. We'll review this version, but in the meantime you can check out our glowing recommendation in the Wii Virtual Console Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts review.

Wii U Virtual Console Promotion
Super Metroid (Nintendo, €0.30 / £0.30) — This is the European version of the game, which was optimised originally by the developer to offer gameplay and music speed similar to the US version. The aspect ratio has been corrected for this release. We suspect that this is the Famicom Anniversary promotion that many have been waiting for, as you can pick up one of the finest games to grace the Super NES for less than a packets of crisps. Even if you have this one already, this price is still only one fifth of the normal "upgrade price" from the Wii edition, and is still considered by some to be the definitive Samus Aran adventure. You can read why we think it's a true classic in our Wii Virtual Console Super Metroid review while we work on an updated assessment.

Wii U eShop Temporary Discount
BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (Gaijin Games, €8.99 / £8.00 until 30th May, normally €11.99 / £10.79)

Wii U Retail Permanent Reduction
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Namco Bandai, €29.99 / £23.99, was €54.99 / £37.49)

Wii U Retail Demo
Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, free) — This HD re-release of the highly regarded 3DS title is now just two weeks away, so Capcom's providing a free demo to get you in the mood. This'll take you through the early — and eerie — stages on an abandoned cruise-liner. They're free scares, what's not to like?

I have the white Wii U and don't want to use all space in its memory. Is it possible to download the Virtual Console games to a SD memory card?

pretty sure you can mate, if you've got an external hdd connected i think you can choose to download the game to that or transfer it from internal hdd to external.
