GBA games might finally arrive on the 3DS eShop!

On the Nintendo of Europe press server, the box-arts for three GBA games (Super Mario Ball, Mario Golf Advance Tour and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga) were uploaded.

As you might know, a European 3DS-focused Nintendo Direct was announced. It is very possible that they may end up announcing GBA games for the eShop during that presentation!

In the Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga spirit, I ask you guys this.

Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata will be hosting a Wii U focused Nintendo Direct at 4PM CEST. This is in addition to the New York presentation about the Wii U occurring this Thursday.

While we don’t know what will be discussed at this presentation, it’s reasonable to assume that we will get details on the Wii U’s release date and price. Maybe even the launch game library! No matter what it is, be sure to stay tuned here (by following us on Twitter, Facebook or using our RSS feed). for coverage of the presentation!

“Our Nintendo Direct Wii U Preview presentation is coming soon! Check back here on Thursday September 13th at 3 p.m. (UK time) to watch it live!”


Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 might appear as downloadable titles on the European eShop

On the Nintendo 3DS’s eShop servers, the European title IDs for Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land were added. Not only this but there is additional data that shows that the title contains a digital manual much like the retail copies of both games.

What does this tell us exactly, you ask? It means that Nintendo of Europe might be adding Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 to the eShop as another game available both on the eShop and in stores like New Super Mario Bros. 2!
