New 3DS Virtual Console May 2016Usually, new Virtual Console releases take place on Wednesday, at the same time as the weekly Nintendo eShop update. But this week is a bit different, as Nintendo released some new titles today (Monday). What’s more, they didn’t release one or two, but 5 different titles at once, which is as many as on launch day, right after the Nintendo Direct in March.

Here’s the 5 games added today to the New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in Japan:

  • Super Mario Kart (Nintendo, SNES): 823 Yen [requires 26 blocks / 3.25MB of free space on your SD Card] [web eShop page]

  • Super Donkey Kong 3: Nazo no Kremis Jima / Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble (Nintendo, SNES): 823 Yen [requires 60 blocks / 7.5MB of free space on your SD Card] [web eShop page]

  • Rockman X / Mega Man X (Capcom, SNES): 823 Yen [requires 34 blocks / 5.6MB of free space on your SD Card] [web eShop page]

Finally, here’s the line-up for June:

  • Fire Emblem: Monshou no Nazo / Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
  • Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyuushutsu Emaki / The Legend of The Mystical Ninja
