Usually, 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]
Head after the break for the rest of this post!
- 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]
- Rockman 7: Shukumei no Taiketsu / Mega Man 7 (Capcom, SNES): 823 Yen [requires 38 blocks / 5.4MB of free space on your SD Card] [web eShop page]
- Contra Spirits / Contra III: The Alien Wars (Konami, SNES): 823 Yen [requires 31 blocks / 3.8MB of free space on your SD Card] [web eShop page]
But that’s not all: Nintendo also released two new pre-paid cards for the Nintendo eShop in Japan. There’s two “models”:
- one featuring an artwork of the Super Famicom / SNES (the same one as on the New Nintendo 3DS XL model), sold only at 7-Eleven Stores;
- one featuring the cartridges of various Super Famicom / SNES games, sold only at Lawson stores.
Finally, here’s the line-up for June:
- Kirby Ball / Kirby’s Dream Course
- Fire Emblem: Monshou no Nazo / Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
- Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyuushutsu Emaki / The Legend of The Mystical Ninja
- Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers
