We’ve known that Nintendo is planning on bringing its Virtual Console service to the 3DS for a while now. We’ve even known about the 3D facelifts being given to old classics for the eShop. Today we got confirmation, at last, that there will also be new dedicated 3DS titles available for download from the service.
Mega-Man Legends 3: Prototype Version is the unlikely first confirmed title. It has been announced today by Capcom via their blog. Up to this point we’ve been working from rumour and supposition so it’s nice to have at least one title firmly pinned dow for launch.
We’re expecting Let’s Golf! 2 from Gameloft too, although we await confirmation. Gameloft’s involvement is a promising indicator as they are by far the strongest launch supporter of the Xperia Play and have made some very decent games on portable devices up to now.
We’ll keep our ears to the ground and hopefully come up with a few more names to look out for when the 3DS eShop finally launches, we think, in late May.
