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. The classic titles will contain new 3DS features like “Perfect Pixel Mode,” which displays each game in its original resolution.

If this sounds like your cup of tea (and why wouldn’t it be), you’ll be happy to know that the first round of SNES games are already available on your Virtual Console! Here’s a list of what’s out today and what’s arriving in the weeks to come:

March 3rd:

  • Pilotwings
  • Super Mario World
  • F-Zero

March 24th:

  • Super Mario Kart
  • EarthBound
  • Donkey Kong Country

April 14th:

  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Super Metroid
  • Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
