And probably not what anyone expected: Avenging Spirit and Fortified Zone from Jaleco.

Avenging Spirit

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Rating: Everyone

Content descriptors: Mild Violence

Rating summary:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a ghost that must rescue his kidnapped girlfriend. Players run and jump through side-scrolling levels and fire small weapons (e.g., bombs, rockets, guns) at robots and gangsters; enemies disappear in brief clouds of smoke. In the opening sequence, a gangster is depicted firing a gun at an off-screen target (e.g., 'Bang!'/'They got me.').

Fortified Zone

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Rating: Everyone

Content descriptors: Mild Violence

Rating summary:
This an action game in which players assume the role of mercenaries who must infiltrate an enemy base. From a top-down perspective, players navigate through maze-like environments and fire pellet-like projectiles at enemy troops and vehicles; enemies disappear in miniature explosions when defeated.

Does this mean that Super Mario Land isn't coming out on day 1?

No, it just means that Jaleco choose to have those ratings public before Nintendo chose to make Super Mario Land VC's rating public.

Avenging Spirit is also an arcade game so Jaleco could release that on the Wii at some point. This is a bit random though. Hopefully both games are better than the stuff Jaleco has on the Wii VC.

I was pretty sure Mario land and Link's awakening would be the first games released. They even mention them in the 3DS manual in the section about the e shop. Since esrb ratings are starting to appear shouldn't this site get started on adding a 3DS VC section?

Yeah I guess that would make more sense. Might as well start adding upcoming Gameboy games to the list then.

We already have a VC section. They should just add Gameboy and Gameboy Color under consoles in that section.

No, there should be a seperate section for 3DS VC just like there are seperate sections for WiiWare and DSiWare. It only makes sense to be consistent, right?

If the 3DS has not been discontinued SM3DL and MK7 are awesome games, but if the 3DS has been discontinued Sony has taken over the world.It is not true that both Sony has taken over the world and SM3DL and MK7 are not awesome games.Therefore:Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 are...

I guess. I just hope they call it Virtual Handheld. It's confusing calling it '3DS VC'. Makes it sound like it's part of the same service.

You never know: Maybe one day you'd be able to play them NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, etc. games on the 3DS.

One can be hopeful.

Turbo grafx 16 games were confirmed for an eventual release on 3DS a while back and that's not a handheld system.
Let's not forget the recent announcement of a free download of Nes Excitebike upon the launch of the e shop.
I don't think console games are completely out of the question.

One word: TurboExpress.

Also, wasn't the 3DS version of ExciteBike a 3D remake, not a direct port? I can see us getting remakes, but not straight, VC like ports of console titles.

I was not even aware they had a handheld Turbo grafx. That thing must not have been too popular.
I'm not sure if the Excitebike they mentioned was the Nes version or not but the article sounded like that's the one they meant. I guess it's more of an enhanced port since it'll make use of the 3D effect.

They didn't have one. These are the console TG-16 games just like on the Wii's VC.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
...
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

It would be AMAZING if they fused the Wii's entire VC library in with the 3DS eShop and then let you download everything you have on Wii to your 3DS! (wishful thinking, i know....)
