Hello, Virtual Console fans. Are you ready to re-buy all those retro NES and SNES games you've already bought half a dozen times? They're coming out on 3DS with enhanced 3D effects and, possibly, new features. Yeah, we thought you'd be interested.
Nintendo revealed an overwhelming amount of 3DS content at E3 last week. One rolling demo in particular showed several NES and Super NES games, including Yoshi's Island (!), Mega Man 2 and The Legend of Zelda running on the new machine with pop-up book-style 3D effects that split each of the sprite layers used in those old non-polygonal games.
You might assume it was simply a tech demo, but Nintendo America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed all these titles, and more, will see a proper release on 3DS.
He went on to say not to think of them as ports, but as enhanced versions of classics which could contain new features that take advantage of the 3DS hardware's many other cool tricks (motion control, camera support, analogue control possibly).
Castlevania, Urban Champion, Kid Icarus, Smash Ping Pong, Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros., Tennis, Metroid and Mystery of Murasame Castle were other games shown off in the demo.
And you'll be re-buying every one of them. Again. Sucker.
