Wii U Virtual Trial Campaign


This month’s Wii U Virtual Trial Campaign began just after last week’s Wii U Direct with Balloon Fight.  For only $0.30, you can enjoy hours of on of my most loathed games for the NES (Give a listen to our latest Infendo Radio Podcast to find out why).

Despite the poor first choice to introduce us to the campaign, there are some great titles included.  Nintendo has released the titles as well as the dates available for purchase. Click the jump below for a list…

  • Balloon Fight (NES) January 23 through February 21
  • F-Zero (SNES) February 20 through March 21
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES) March 20 through April 18
  • Kirby’s Adventure (NES) April 17 through May 16
  • Super Metroid (SNES) May 15 through June 13
  • Yoshi (NES) June 12 through July 11
  • Donkey Kong (NES) July 15 through August 13

I think it fantastic that they timed the released to coincide with the July 15, 1983 30 year anniversary by highlighting Donkey Kong on the same date, since it was one of the first three games released for the newly revealed console.

Are you excited about any of the games?
