3DS classic NES and SNES games like Mega Man 2 coming with updates
The 3DS will be getting many 8-bit NES and 16-bit SNES classics re-released with updated stereoscopic 3D graphics (so the visual’s pop-out of the screen!) and other enhancements confirmed Nintendo.

This was revealed in a recent interview where Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime stated that not only were all of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo games shown at E3 2010 running on 3DS real products that will be released, but that other retro games are planned as well!

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • And not only will the games be re-released on the 3DS, they will be UPDATED to include stereoscopic 3D effects AND “new elements” (i.e.= additions) that will allow these beloved retro classics to “be better fitted for the 3DS”.

    The nine games confirmed for re-release (as shown at E3 2010) include:

    1. Castlevania
    2. Kid Icarus
    3. Mario Bros
    4. Mega Man 2
    5. Punch Out
    6. Smash Ping Pong
    7. Super Mario Bros.
    8. The Legend of Zelda
    9. Yoshi’s Island

    However you can bet your Nintendo fanboy/girl heart that other Nintendo classics like Zelda II, Metroid, Super Metroid, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, F-Zero, Excitebike, Donkey Kong Country and many more will also be re-released.

    And hopefully it won’t stop there, but will continue with N64 games and HOPEFULLY other cool stuff like 3DS Virtual Boy games or Game Boy games.

    Whether these games will be released on the 3DS’ own Virtual Console is still unknown, but it’d make perfect sense if that was the case. The Reggie comment was also further confirmed by Shigeru Miyamoto in a roundtable at E3 2010, where he stated that the 3DS had “a lot to offer” classic, retro titles.

    The 3DS just keeps getting better and better!
