Nintendo Has Found a New Way to Re-Sell You More Old Games

Nintendo’s back catalogue of games is full of classics—and Nintendo loves giving you new chances to play all your old favorites again, provided you’re willing to purchase them all over again.

During its “Nintendo Direct” livestream video today, the company announced that a bunch of great old Super Nintendo Entertainment System games are coming to its New 3DS handheld system. That’s great news if you’ve never played some of the best games literally ever made, including Super Metroid, Super Mario World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Nintendo’s dropping these classics on players in waves, but didn’t give any info on pricing. Up first, and available right now, are Super Mario World (that’s the game that introduced Yoshi), futurish racer F-Zero, and flight simulator Pilotwings. Next will be beloved weirdo role-playing game EarthBound, Donkey Kong Country (in which you play as a barrel-and-banana-obsessed giant gorilla), and the original Mario Kart, coming March 24. The last batch is sci-fi epic Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country 2, and A Link to the Past—arguably the best Zelda game ever. Those hit on April 14.

The Nintendo Direct stream had a few other announcements, too. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto announced a new game called Star Fox Guard, and Nintendo showed off big updates to Super Mario Maker and its paint shooter Splatoon. There’s also a new Kirby game in which you can drive around in a big Kirby robot, and a bunch more. Watch the full video above.
