Here's the full official list:

Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS

Mega Man II - It's Mega May! Every Thursday in May, a different Mega Man game (actually, two this week!) will launch in the Virtual Console section of the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. In Mega Man II, jump and blast your way through a barrage of maniacal robotic monsters while collecting a variety of weapons and items to help fight more Robot Masters. Who is this stranger from the future called Quint? Can Mega Man reach Dr. Wily before time's up? Suit up, power up and let's go! Click here to check out the trailer for Mega Man II.

Mega Man III - The sinister Dr. Wily has taken control of an offshore oil rig to drill to the center of the Earth. By reaching the molten core, he will be able to collect energy in order to power his latest invention. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, and Mega Man must put a stop to this! Join robotic dog Rush and walking suitcase Flip-Top as you progress through Dr. Wily's fiendish fortress, battling various Robot Masters and collecting their weapons before facing the mad scientist and his final robotic creation.

Grinsia - Grinsia, Kemco's classic 16-bit style JRPG, follows a family of three treasure hunters who go out in search of some ancient ruins said to be full of untold riches.

THE "DENPA" MEN 3 The Rise of Digitoll - Full and Demo Versions - THE "DENPA" MEN 3 is the third game in the expansive, augmented-reality RPG series that lets players catch and form parties of Denpa Men to conquer perilous dungeons and explore a new world.

Wario Land 4 - Bask in the greedy glory of treasure hoarding as you hop, roll and zombify Wario through 20 huge, puzzle-packed levels. This critically praised platformer sees our stubby anti-hero in search of gold, jewels and riches beyond imagining.
