New 3DS Store shown off

Plus, see Super Mario Land in action.

Game Boy classic Super Mario Land will be one of the first games to hit the 3DS's online store, according to a video shown to Nintendo investors.

The clip was aired during an investor update hosted by CEO Satoru Iwata in which Nintendo's boss showed off the new 3DS Store.

According to Andriasang, he promised that it would be much easier to use than the DSiWare shopfront and would also have a promotional function, hosting game trailers and release information.

To take a look at the new store and see Super Mario Land running on the 3DS go to the 40 minute mark of the video embedded on Nintendo's Japanese site.

Nintendo confirmed the existence of a Virtual Console for the 3DS last month. You'll be able to download classic Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance titles to its new handheld. Apart from Super Mario Land, the only other title confirmed so far is The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX.

The 3DS is due for release in Europe in March 2011.
