Yay for Mario and Famicon controller! So awesome!

The WiiU pre-launch Virtual Console Famicon 30th Anniversary 30-Cent Games for 30 days campaign schedule has been announced. These are the exact dates of each of the upcoming 30 Cent games that will be released. The Famicon (which stands for “Family Computer”) is the Japanese version of the NES, which launched in Japan in 1983.

Each game will be available for 30 days after the start of the month, and can be purchased for only 30 cents. These games will be available, one a month, leading up to the official launch of the WiiU Virtual Console, at which point they will revert back to their normal price of $5-6 dollars (for NES games) or $7-8 (for SNES games). If you already own these games on Wii, you’ll be able to upgrade to the WiiU versions at a cost of $1.00 (NES) or 1.50 (SNES).
