8-Bit Summer Official Trailer »

Nintendo's barrage of big announcements at the latest streaming Nintendo Direct press conference included the reveal of an upcoming 8-Bit Summer promotion for 3DS owners. The plan is to release two Virtual Console titles each week in the 3DS eShop, with a new trailer (above) confirming a handful of those titles and dates.

First up is The Legend of Zelda on July 5. Kirby's Pinball Land and The Sword of Hope 2 follow on July 12; then Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters and Tumblepop on July 19. Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 closes out the month on July 26. Sonic Blast and Sonic Labyrinth are coming as well, presumably in the first and last week of July, but there's no confirmation on dates for those two.
