Another Batch of All-Time Great SNES Games Now Out on New 3DS
The third set of Super Nintendo games to be released on the 3DS eShop is now available and include some of the greatest games of all time. But like with the previous SNES games, you’ll need a New 3DS in order to play them.
Today’s eShop update brings Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Donkey Kong Country 2 to the 3DS Virtual Console. As with the previous games (which have included Earthbound, Super Mario World, and Mario Kart), each of these games costs $8. There’s no discount available if you happen to own any of them on the Wii or Wii U Virtual Consoles.
These are the last SNES games Nintendo confirmed for the 3DS Virtual Console when it revealed in early March that it would finally bring them to (New) 3DS. More SNES games could be on the way, but right now we don’t know which ones they would be or when they’re coming.
Also as part of today’s eShop update, you can grab an open beta for Lost Reavers on Wii U, or pick up Shovel Knight on Wii U or 3DS for $10 each.
