Three more marquee Super Nintendo games are bound for the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Once again, the games are stellar standouts from my childhood, and I imagine a bunch of our readers will say the same thing.
The three games in question are Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. Here’s how Nintendo described each in their press release, complete with links to the story page.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past – When an evil magician named Agahnim begins kidnapping young maidens in Hyrule, a young boy named Link is called upon to stop him. Link must traverse both Light and Dark Worlds, navigate through mazelike dungeons and fight an assortment of foes in this Super NES classic.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest – Donkey Kong has been kidnapped and taken to Crocodile Isle. Only Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong can save the day! Play solo, compete with a friend or tag-team in eight exciting worlds filled with wacky characters, collectable items and secret bonus areas.
Super Metroid – The Space Pirates, merciless agents of the evil Mother Brain, have stolen the last Metroid from a research station and threatened the safety of the galaxy. In this critically acclaimed Super NES masterpiece, Samus Aran must don her awesome array of high-tech weaponry to retrieve the deadly Metroid hidden deep within the cave-riddled planet Zebes.
