Nintendo announced overnight that it would be adding a number of Wii games to the Wii U’s eShop. If you have a Wii U and missed out on some of the Wii’s best titles, you’ll be able to pick up games like Super Mario Galaxy 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns and the Metroid Prime Trilogy for a stupidly low $13.
For the Metroid Prime Trilogy in particular — which is notoriously difficult to find and pricey to buy second hand — this is an incredible, incredible deal.
There’s also the fact that Metroid Prime is pretty much the best game ever made in my humble opinion. It has also survived the passage of time quite miraculously.
Nintendo is staggering the releases and the $13 deal only lasts for the first week of sale. Mario Galaxy 2 comes first, and that’s released today. Donkey Kong Country Returns goes on sale January 23 and Metroid Prime Trilogy is released January 30.
These three games are, pound for pound, the best games on the Nintendo Wii. Picking up these games for $13 a-piece is just an unmissable deal.
