    This announcement made me spaz out. I’ve been waiting for Wario Land to come out for the 3DS, so happy it finally is! Can’t wait to see what other old goodies they’ll give us.

    Nintendo really should’ve had this info during E3, but I can’t complain. They’ll be leaving my wallet empty by the end of the year anyway. Maybe I should complain about that…

  • Wario Land was the only new one there (for ambassadors).

    • SirTeffy

       Because we TOTALLY got Kirby’s Pinball Land already. Wait, no.

      Also they added a trailer showing off MORE of the games coming to the Nintendo Direct site, under the “8-Bit Summer” heading.

      • I forgot about the Pinball one. Sorry.

        • SirTeffy

          No worries, just been in a bad mood all day for some reason. Anyway the only 8-Bit Summer title Ambassadors already have is Legend of Zelda (July 5th), the rest are all new to everyone in the US (Europe/Japan not included, they already have some/most of these games already)

    Yeah, that’s great! I was browsing the e-Shop(Japanese) the other day, and I just realized the growing library of demos and overall software. I was particularly impressed with the Virtual Console games, there’s quite a few of them! It’s nice to see that there will be more coming on a weekly basis soon! (◕‿◕✿)

    Sweet. Can’t wait to see what else they’ve got coming.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Legend of Zelda????
    Oracle of Ages and Seasons???????

  • Roberto Armando Iraheta

    YES!!! I love Wario Land!

  • Relytgninroht

    What happened to Cave Story + coming to the eShop? It’s not like I need it (already own like 3 versions of the game) but… I actually kinda want it for some weird reason.

  • More GBA and SNES titles Ninty, do it :)

  • Zonic505

    Glad to hear Wario Land is finally coming out. Lost the cartridge for that somehow & I’d like to have the game again.

    Also, here’s the full list of VC eShop games coming out in July.

    July 5th: The Legend of Zelda (NES)
    July 12th: Kirby’s Pinball Land & The Sword of Hope 2
    July 19th: Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters & Tumblepop
    July 26th: Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, Sonic Blast, & Sonic Labyrinth

    • KingGunblader

      How do you know this?

      Whatever the case, I’ll take Wario Land and Kid Icarus 2 please. And btw Nintendo, I totally wouldn’t hate you for adding the Zelda Oracle games…?
