This week's eShop update gifts gamers a free and updated version of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords.

Nintendo also adds Game Boy classic Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins on the 3DS Virtual Console.

Four Swords is a multiplayer-focused flavour of Zelda for up to four players. This new Anniversary Edition adds single-player support and two extra areas.

3DS and DSi users get the download free to mark the legendary series' 25th anniversary. It will be available until 20th February next year.

For Super Mario Land 2, Nintendo's asking £3.50/€4. The plumber's excellent second Game Boy outing introduced evil alter ego Wario.

Elsewhere on WiiWare, Pop developer Nnooo launches retro-themed puzzler escapeVektor: Chapter 1 for 500 Points (about £3.50).

Nintendo's shop updates go live this Thursday.
