What we know so far:

NES
Super Mario Bros.
Donkey Kong Jr.
Balloon Fight
Ice Climber
The Legend of Zelda
+5 more

GBA
Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Metroid Fusion
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$
Mario vs. Donkey Kong
+5 more

ALSO for GBA and free to all, even non"Ambassadors" is Zelda Four Swords.

My thoughts.

  • So much for Mario 1 getting remastered into a 3D classic... It's also now not likely that Mario 3 is getting reworked into a 3D classic.
  • We better be getting a Megaman AND a Castlevania in the free releases.
  • MGS for the NES would be a great one too. Toss in Blaster Master and Gauntlet too.
  • I want to see some Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest games included in the free releases but I doubt they'll do that because they know how much money they can make off those...
  • The announced GBA game titles seem much stronger collectively than the NES offerings

I'm very happy with it. I hope Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is one of the other five GBA games. It doesn't appear likely that there will by any third-party titles included, because those first five games for both systems are all first-party. I own most of them, but since they're free it wouldn't hurt at all to download them and play them on the 3DS.

This is a good point. Bionic Commando is another NES game I'll throw out there. It's another non-Nintendo production game.

I'm really happy with The Legend of Zelda, Yoshi's Island, Metroid Fusion, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Everything else is good, too, and there are still ten more games.

To be honest, I can't imagine this as a good use of the 3D effect:

But yeah, I was hoping for The Legend of Zelda as a 3D classic. I think it would have worked really well.

We could say the same thing about the two 3D classics on the market.

Here's another thought. Early adopters also got Excitebike 3D and Pokedex for free as well. So technically it's 12 free games/apps.

They're still pretty good, though. I just don't think an 8-bit platformer would be a good choice for 3D classics.

Mario 1 is one of the greatest games of all-time. It's pretty good.

I wanna know what the other 10 games are.

I never said it wasn't. I don't want a 3D Classics version just so the clouds and bushes can be further in the background.

I don't like the idea of Mario games going wide screen.The pacing of the games will change...

I can't wait to play SMB1 on my 3DS. The NES games will be rendered at their original resolution since both the 3DS screen and NES have the same height in pixels, so they'll look awesome.

Also I can't wait to finally play Metroid Fusion. <3

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

If Kid Icarus isn't one of the 10 free NES titles then let's hope for that belongs in the 3D Classics.

"These will be 2D games. They are not 3D Classics. When the NES games become available to the general public later this year, they will include additional features such as multiplayer simultaneous play. Ambassadors will then be able to download those updated version at no cost," says a Nintendo spokesperson

This is awesome. I hope they're updated for ONLINE play D:
