One of the most exciting announcements for Nintendo fans during their last Nintendo Direct, was that on top of the Wii U finally getting a Virtual Console, several top notch retro games would be released for a ridiculous discounted price in celebration of the NES' 30th anniversary. Now those games have release dates you can look forward to.
Sure, the Virtual Console won't be fully here until the Spring, but Nintendo has already started this discount program with Ballon Fight. They promised to bring a new games for the discount program for only 30 cents (for 30 days) over the next several months. Now we have release dates courtesy of Joystiq:

- April 17: Kirby's Adventure (NES)
- May 15: Super Metroid (SNES)
