The New Nintendo 3DS is becoming the portable SNES that you always dreamed of.
A series of Super Nintendo games were announced for the Virtual Console during Nintendo Direct that will be exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS. Bringing back some of the most iconic games of the 16-bit generation, Nintendo has picked some excellent choices, like EarthBound and Super Metroid.
