As reported months ago, the Japanese version of Ice Climber (NES) on Virtual Console has download play. Ice Climber is now downloadable for everyone now, for $5.00, and is the first 3DS Virtual Console game to include Download Play.
Keep in mind the Download Play mode is only playable on the 3DS and 3DS XL. Don't expect to play with your friend who owns a DSi to play as Nana.

Do both people playing have to have Ice Climbers for it to work?

No its Download Play, meaning all the other player has to do is go on Download Play.

If it uses the Download Play app, then presumably not.

Alright, thanks. Guess this means I'll have reason to re-download Ice Climbers.

Great. Now all I have to do is buy a 3DS for one of my friends and pay him to play the game with me. Pretty sweet deal, really.

Great! Hopefully it releases in Europe soon. It's pretty rare when the US gets a 3DS VC game that Europe doesn't already have!

I tried it out with my bro yesterday. It's ok I guess. I hope DL play makes it to the other NES games, Ice Climber is a terrible game even with DL play.

@MultiMariosonic Definetly don't get it, I only redownloaded it because I'm an ambassador, but it really isn't all that good imo.

Go to download the game as if you were buying it, and there should be an option to "go to update screen".

Not really. For some reason Nintendo can support Download Play for NES games, but they just can't emulate that darn Game Link cable (despite that, like Super Game Boy colors/borders, Game Boy fan emulators have done it since the '90s!) :(
