Virtual Console 3DS

Official logo.

The Virtual Console is a service for the Nintendo 3DS similar to the Virtual Console on the Wii, found on the Nintendo eShop. With it, players can download Game Boy and Game Boy Color games such as Super Mario Land and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX onto their Nintendo 3DS. Other games will come from other portable systems like Sega's Game Gear and TurboGrafx-16. Pricing will be in dollars (plus applicable tax) rather than points, where retailers will have $20 Nintendo 3DS cards available for those that want to purchase games and redeem on their eShop account. The service is scheduled to add new games every Thursday at noon ET/9am PT. Though all the games are played on a high-scale resolution, players can change to the original console resolution. To do it, at boot up, hold START and SELECT, and it will change to the original resolution, additionally adding an original Game Boy border to the screen.
