During the Nintendo Direct conference held online featuring Iwata-san, a 30th Anniversary promotion has been announced for the Wii U service. This special promotion is to celebrate the 30th year of the NES/ Famicom system and will make available 30 titles over 30 days for the Virtual Console service.
What’s interesting about this is that one game will be made free per month, ending in June, and additional titles will be made available for 30cents per title. This will be a great way to add functionality to the Wii U device while we wait for additional titles. Refer to the picture below for examples of games coming to the service.
