Last month, Club Nintendo offered the Wii Virtual Console version of Super Metroid for just 150 Coins. Many Wii U owners took advantage of the deal, but there was an issue: Super Metroid is scheduled for release on the Wii U Virtual Console on May 15th and will be priced at just 30 cents for 30 days. Nintendo has realized that the promotion was ill-timed and refunds are being issued to those who downloaded the game. Here's the message they're sending out:
Dear Club Nintendo Member,
Thank you for your recent order of Super Metroid from Club Nintendo. We're sending this notification to let you know this title will be available from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U for 30 cents, as part of a special promotion starting on May 15.
Because you are a Wii U owner, we have refunded the 150 Coins you redeemed for Super Metroid. You may still use the code you received to download the game for free to play on Wii or Wii U. We hope you enjoy your game, and visit Club Nintendo again soon.
It's always good to see a company thinking of their customers.
