NES games coming to 3DS eShop

Legend of Zelda first to launch in Japan.

NES games are the latest format to be added to the 3DS eShop in Japan.

As reported by Siliconera, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda on its download service this week priced at ¥500 (around £4).

Of course, Nintendo offered 3DS early adopters 10 complimentary NES games as part of the compensation package following the drastic hardware price cut back in July. However, until now the general population have not been able to get their Famicom fix.

There's no word yet on when NES titles will be available in Europe, nor whether Nintendo intends to offer any of the GBA games also given away in the Ambassador scheme at some point as well.
