What have we here?
Everyone's still waiting for details of the 3DS eShop launch: when, what, when, how, when. Apparently a translation by The Magic Box of this week's Famitsu Magazine contains the details of what Japanese gamers will be able to play when the eShop goes live.
The firmware update — a date for which was not given — will include several 3D Classics, as well as 3DSWare and Virtual Console titles too. Here's the list:
3DS May Firmware contents:
3DS Ware - Rockman Dash 3 Prologue (200 yen), Petitcom (800 yen)
DSi Ware - import DSi Ware from DSi to 3DS
3D Classic - classic titles in 3D, Excitebike, Legend of Zelda and Xevious will be available
Virtual Console GameBoy - Ikari no Yousai, Phantasm
Virtual Console Game Gear - Sonic & Tails 2, Sonic Drift 2, Dragon Crystal, Columns
Virtual Console GameBoy Color - Super Mario Land, The Legend of Zelda DX (Demo)
Virtual Console PC Engine - games TBA
Demos - 3D Video Player, 3D Game Trailer/Previews Channel, Fuji TV and Nippon TV Previews
As usual with rumours, not everything adds up: Super Mario Land is on Game Boy, not Game Boy Colour, and Nintendo has said nothing concrete about a 3D Classics version of any Legend of Zelda game, other than Shigeru Miyamoto's statement that Zelda: A Link to the Past could work on 3DS.
What do you make of this rumoured list of titles and updates?
