This is more a letting people know post than a deal but just in case you do live under a rock here it is! Like posts in previous weeks you can get one of the games half price so buy one at £7.19 the other one is £3.59.

MK is obviously choice, and with my rose tinted on I remember f-zero being pretty decent at the time. Mode 7 ftw! but before ftw existed.

Also I should add the snes vc games are new 3ds only titles which sucks for others I know sorry.

Shame its only for the 'New 3DS'
I would've had half of these, it's like Nintendo are trying to force people to upgrade for the sake of getting these instead. It's cheaper to hunt down a 2nd hand SNES and the cartridges.

Yeah I just remembered that they are for the new 3ds only and have added it to the post. Sorry. I don't work for Nintendo, if I did things would be different.

Sega did a much better job with their Mega Drive titles on 3DS, and they were emulated too. Nintendo have the time and resources and they'd get the purchase from me too.

Still heat for the deal, thanks.
Anyone know if you can pck n mix from the other titles and get one half price. Deffo want MK but would prefer Metroid over Fzero

the link is just to the vc page on the Nintendo site. You'll have to buy via your 3ds.

Ah balls, thats crap on Nintys part... but to be expected I suppose. Thanks for the reply.
The fact these arnt cross buy too is terrible. I bought a 3ds the other day and getting a new 3ds just isn't justified still for me. You get expose blade and some negligible extras for to much extra money.

This is coming from a guy who thinks the snes is the best console ever too....
although F Zero is one wicked game and im not a racing fan you cant beat F Zero 64 cause of the elimination mode absolutely loved that, nearest ive seen is Wipeout
Mario Kart is unplayable for me, size wise you forget the map took up half the screen! shame they couldn't split it.

Just thought I'd add I'm personally finding the 3ds thumbstick controls really comfortable. Especially on super metroid and earthbound.

that's the one thing I don't like about vc mk. Not implementing the bottom screen in games like this seems like a waste and pretty lazy on Nintendo's part.

I should add there are vids on youtube already showing how the screen layout works on the 3ds vc version in case anyone was curious.

I don't think it is. I was doing this a few months ago and loose carts for Zelda or metroid alone are between £40 and £50 on average for average carts. Couple that with a decent condition SNES plus all the other games they have released on VC but in cart form and you're easily looking at £200+. Which isn't far off a n3ds anyway, and you can play other stuff on it too.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's crap they haven't put them on old 3ds too as it is likely possible in some form. But compared to getting the originals, unless collecting them is a factor, most likely won't be any cheaper unless you get super lucky with an uninformed seller who doesn't know the value of the stuff they're selling.

All from personal experience in the last year of trying to collect retro games lol. It can be a headache haha.
There's no reason other than the obvious cash cow for them not to put it on the old 3ds too. Ive seen someone using a psp to emulate these games!

Overpriced VC games. Then Ninty wonders why people use emulators.

It's not worth getting the PAL SNES carts performance-wise. They're inferior to the NTSC-U carts.


Just a poor way of trying to push consumers to buying the New 3DS.

Yeah I know, pal does get shafted, but me still having my originalpal snes and not wanting to use dodgy converter carts (some have compatibility issues) coupled with also being too lazy to get a NTSC snes meant I went with pal lol. Though I never did get zelda or metroid as they were too expensive for me currently >.<

The vc snes games are the ntsc versions for what it's worth. Metroid plays great especially with the thumbstick control.

I'd guess that on RetroCollect.com or FamicomWorld.com could get you a deal on an American Super Nintendo. It's pretty likely to found one at FamicomWorld (US forum) moreso than RetroCollect (UK forum).
So when's dk country 1&2 going on the store? I heard 24th but still no sign. Can't even find an official date anywhere online I just remember that from the Nintendo direct.
