Mario Land 2, Metroid 2 confirmed for 3DS eShop

Two more Game Boy classics on their way to 3DS

Nintendo has confirmed that Super Mario Land: 2: 6 Golden Coins and Metroid 2: Return Of Samus will be released for 3DS via the eShop this year.


Super Mario Land 2 saw the debut of Mario evil alter-ego, Wario, who makes his first appearance as the main bad guy in this cool platformer.

Metroid 2 was notable for being eight times the size of the previous game - impressive for a handheld game released in 1993 - and sees Samus visit the Metroid home planet to destroy them before the Space Pirates attempt to harness their power.

Both games are slated for a Q4 2011 release, and will make nice additions to the 20 free games that 3DS ambassadors will receive before the year's out.
