Super Nintendo Virtual Console coming to New Nintendo 3DS
Well it finally happened, Nintendo has announced that from today (or right now) that Super Nintendo games are coming to the Virtual Console, but only on the New Nintendo 3DS.
The reason? The New Nintendo 3DS has the available CPU power to properly emulate the SNES, the older model does not. Over the next four weeks there will be two new SNES games released each week starting with Super Mario World and Earthbound.
There will be a discount available each week, if you buy one game you’ll get the other one cheaper. So buy F-Zero, Super Mario Kart is cheaper that week. The games are the ‘standard’ SNES price of $10.40 and you’ll get 50% off the other – so $5.20.
Sadly it does not appear that there is any cross buy with these titles. So if you have already paid for them on the Wii U… you’re not going to get them cheaper (or free) on the New Nintendo 3DS. That’s a bit of shame in 2016.
The schedule is below;
