Nintendo's celebration of the Famicom's 30th birthday – the Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campaign – kicked off last week with the release of Balloon Fight on the Wii U eShop. Each month, Nintendo will release a classic game at a special $.30 price, for 30 days until the next eligible game debuts. Today, Nintendo released the schedule for the discount promotion:
  • February 20: F-Zero (SNES)
  • March 20: Punch-Out!!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES)
  • April 17: Kirby's Adventure (NES)
  • May 15: Super Metroid (SNES)
  • June 12: Yoshi (NES)
  • July 15: Donkey Kong (NES)
The Virtual Console doesn't officially launch on the Wii U until this spring, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct event last week. Despite that, Balloon Fight as well as several other games can be acquired through the Wii U eShop.
