As usual, Official Nintendo Magazine has posted a list of titles that will be made available for the Nintendo eShop when it updates this Thursday (although they were a couple of days later than usual, which is inhumanity I tells ya!). This week, there is no WiiWare for their current home console, but there is a couple of 3DS treats:
Super Mario Bros. – Originally for the NES and later released through the Ambassador Programme last September, the iconic Super Mario Bros. will now be available for all 3DS owners – for £4.50. This title has been available on the Wii’s Virtual Console for quite a while.
Punch-Out!! – This NES game was not among last year’s Ambassador programme titles, but has been available on the Wii’s Virtual Console for some time now. You play as Little Mac, a boxer who has to box his way to the top. Like Super Mario Bros., this game will cost £4.50.
A demo for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games will also be available.
Lola’s Alphabet Train – Helping 3-7 year olds master their reading skills! (200 DSi Points / £1.80).
Also, Official Nintendo Magazine have also confirmed two of the titles that will be made available in the Nintendo eShop during March (which would have began today if it wasn’t a leap year. Where has the year gone?). These titles are the Gameboy classic Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters and the NES 3DS Ambassador title Metroid. They also reaffirm that GameGear titles will start appearing next month as well.
There are also some details regarding the Wii’s Virtual Console;
– Super Street Fighter 2 has been updated to include multiplayer via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection; the first Virtual Console game to be compatible with Wi-Fi.
– Mega Man X and Mega Man 5 will be released on the Virtual Console as well.
– And so will Strider and Showdown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge.
