There still aren't a whole lot of new games for the Nintendo 3DS, but at least we've got a wealth of downloadable eShop titles to play with, right??? Okay... maybe Urban Champion ISN'T so exciting, but a new update from the UK's Official Nintendo Magazine confirms two upcoming eShop titles that ARE worth your time, one starring Mario and the other starring Samus Aran.
Game Boy games Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and Metroid II: Return of Samus will be coming to the eShop's Virtual Console before the end of this year. The Mario game is notable for featuring the first appearance of Wario and Metroid was the only one in the series released for the original Game Boy.
For now, you should probably take this confirmation as "UK-only," but these are two high-profile titles that will no doubt find buyers in whatever region they're released in.
