This has been a highly-requested feature for a long time with this handheld console, but was allegedly never released because the previous generation of products were not powerful enough to play them. With their latest 3DS, the Super Nintendo can finally be unleashed in all of it’s 16-bit glory!

These Virtual Console SNES games will include a “perfect pixel” mode to retain the original hardware’s aspect ratio, and the games will cost $7.99 each on the VC. Unfortunately, any customers who previously bought these titles for the Wii U will not be able to get a discount or even just download it for free since they already own it. In other words, if you want to play this on both systems, you will need to buy it twice.
