Nintendo confirms old 3DS Games to be available via eShop

This is from another Nintendo Direct.  Apparently, their older 3DS titles (such as Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Ocarina of Time 3D and Mario Tennis Open will be heading to the eShop soon and will be able to be bought digitally like New Super Mario Bros 2.  The eight titles announced for this treatment first are:

  1. Super Mario 3D Land
  2. Mario Kart 7
  3. The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D
  4. Mario Tennis Open
  5. Star Fox 64 3D
  6. Pilotwings Resort
  7. Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games
  8. The 3D Encyclopedia of Flora an Fauna

You can watch the announcement here:

I have to wonder about their choices though.  Where’s Kid Icarus Uprising and why isn’t that being made available via digital distribution?  And who the hell wants a 3D encyclopedia of plant and animal life on the eShop more than actual games?

Still, if you missed out on classics like Mario Kart 7, Ocarina of Time 3D and Super Mario 3D Land, here’s your perfect chance to make up for it and get them online!
