Nintendo to release Metroid, Super Metroid this month?

With Metroid Prime 3: Corruption just a few short weeks away from release on the Wii, it looks like Nintendo is set to ramp up with hype with a pair of Virtual Console releases. Images for both Metroid for the NES and Super Metroid for the SNES have appeared on the VC web server and spotted by an eagle-eyed NeoGAF poster.

This is cool, yet this is horrible. I would have rather played Super Metroid earlier this summer before Prime 3 hits the Wii. Thanks, Nintendo. Just thanks!
