US Nintendo downloads: Zelda, NES Golf

8-Bit summer series brings two more NES classics

Nintendo has added two more sweet NES titles to the 3DS eShop this week as its '8-Bit Summer' continues.

Zoom

The game that kicked off one Nintendo's biggest franchises, The Legend of Zelda, has arrived alongside NES Open Tournament Golf on 3DS.

That'll be nothing new for 3DS Ambassadors, who will probably be more excited about the Heroes of Ruin demo that's all arrived today.

Here's the full US downloads list:
