Well, to be straight up, so far the offer is only in Japan, but usually this sort of thing comes across the pond. At any rate, Nintendo have said that the launch of their much anticipated eShop for the 3DS is close and to celebrate (in Japan), they'll be offering, for a limited time only, a free download of the classic NES title Excitebike, 3Dised, free.

The game is just one of a manifest of classic games being given the 3D overhaul as part of the "3D Classics" range, which will initially be comprised of NES, Game Boy and Game Boy Color games before pulling titles from the likes of SEGA Game Gear, TurboGRAFX and eventually even SNES.

What classic 8 - 16 bit games would like to see hit the system, 3D'd?

Yoshi's Island. Hands down, best platform game ever created. Give it to me NOW.

Secret of Mana, please. I don't care if it's 3D or not.

Also, Zelda: Link to the Past/Four Swords.
Posted 10:53am 27/4/11
Yeah, Link to the Past would kick arse too.

Srsly though, im pretty excited for the 3d pacman game.

Secret of Mana, please

Bugger that, I want a real release of Secret of Mana 2. That game is so god damn epic and only way you can play it is illegaly... or if you happen to have the cartridge like I do and know japanese.

Seriously though a 3DS version of either SoM games would be epic. They could fit on legend of mana though I bet so why not do that too!

Super Metroid. Nuff said.

Donkey Kong Country.

Terranigma, though I doubt that'll ever happen.

Killer Instinct. That's unlikely as well.

The Mega Man X series fucking rocks too.

+1 for Super Metroid.

And the things I'd do for any of the Double Dragon or Streets of Rage games.
Posted 06:27pm 27/4/11
Any date for when this will launch in aus/the west.
Posted 08:09pm 27/4/11
I don't think the store will be released until late next month.

I dunno, but i just got 10 stars in super mario 64. Not 8bit sure, but pretty awesome game. I went sledding down a mountain racing a penguin.

Mario party 2 was a bit shit though.

Super Metroid. Nuff said.

I'm sitting here trying to work out how you could make Super Metroid any better an the only thing I can come up with, is if you built entirely new zones for the existing ones. Everyone knows the layouts so get in there with an editor and just rip it apart and rebuild it from scratch with the same power ups, bosses and so on.
