A bit of a Virtual Console boost for the end of the year?

The Virtual Console has been neglected by me and probably lots of people like me who haven't found anything worthwhile in the past several months, but things are looking up for the end of the year.  Nintendo is releasing 3 of their biggest games that haven't been available on the VC.  Super Mario Kart is on Monday and it's the only Mario Kart game I bought and liked.  Pilotwings is one of Nintendo's lesser known games, but I guess there are people who loved the game.  I never played it myself, though.  And Super Smash Bros. has been out in Japan and Europe (I think?) for a while so this was to be expected.  That's a buy for me... I loved the original. 
But... no Earthbound.  Sad face.
