New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Is Finally Getting SNES Games

by Dean James


Following the announcement yesterday that a new Nintendo Direct was coming, one of the swirling rumors was that it was going to be revealed that SNES games would be coming to the Nintendo 3DS. That news was partially right, as it has been confirmed, but only for the New Nintendo 3DS.

Starting today, the New Nintendo 3DS will be getting SNES game added to the Virtual Console with the first batch arriving after the end of the Nintendo 3DS.

The fun will start with three original SNES launch titles, Super Mario World, F-Zero, and Pilotwings today, with exclusive content compared to the Wii U version. This new Perfect Pixel mode will have the games displayed in their original resolution.

Following the initial three are two more batches of three already revealed, with Earthbound, Super Mario Kart, and Donkey Kong Country on March 24. Then on April 14, another trio will go up with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest.

These are some fantastic games to start off with on the New Nintendo 3DS’s Virtual Console. Just remember that these will not be available for the regular Nintendo 3DS games, as you must have the New Nintendo 3DS of some sort.
