Three Classic SNES Games Released For 3DS eShop

Nintendo released three classic SNES games for the New 3DS eShop this week. This is the second batch of SNES games released. These games are only playable on the New 3DS and run on the 3DS Virtual Console. These games are limited to the New 3DS for the high processing power required to run the emulator.

Here is a list of the new games:

  • Earthbound
  • Mario Kart
  • Donkey Kong Country

Earthbound currently costs $9.99 while the others cost $7.99 each. Unfortunately, if you own a Wii U, you will need to buy the game twice if you want to own it on both devices. Nintendo originally announced they would be releasing SNES games at a recent Nintendo Direct presentation. Three more SNES titles are on the horizon, including Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Metroid and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, rounding out to a total of nine releases.
