Super Mario Land Title
This month Nintendo rolled out their Nintendo 3DS eShop which includes the Virtual Console for portable games. Nintendo has promised Game Boy, Game Boy Color games as well as Sega Game Gear and Turbo Grafx-16* games in the future. Here is the current line-up:

Game Boy (Available Now!)

  • Super Mario Land - $3.99

  • Alleyway - $2.99

  • Radar Mission - $2.99

Game Boy Color (Available Now!)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX - $5.99

Game Gear (Announced for this Summer 2011)
  • Sonic The Hedgehog: Triple Trouble

  • Sonic Drift 2

  • Shinobi

  • Columns

  • Dragon Crystal

As you can see the United States does not have many titles available but Nintendo is scheduled to update their shop every Thursday with new titles to choose from. Since Japan already has Mega Man: Dr. Wiley's Revenge, Baseball, Kirby, and other tiles, it's pretty safe to say there are a bunch of quality titles headed to our North American 3DS consoles soon.

*Note: No Turbo Grafx-16 games have been formally announced yet.
