Nintendo Adds Three Classic 3DS Games To Selects Library

Players can now grab three of the most highly-rated 3DS games at a budget-friendly price.


Fans of Nintendo's 3D-enabled handheld are no doubt by now familiar with the Selects library of games, which conveniently encompasses some of the bigger game releases in the 3DS history. It's sort of like a greatest hits label, offering up top-tier experiences at easy-to-digest prices. Well, Nintendo has just recently announced that three new titles are being added to the Selects lineup, including Ultimate NES Remix, Super Mario 3D Land, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

This is great for budget-oriented players, as even now both Super Mario 3D Land and A Link Between Worlds have been relatively hard to find — and despite being four or more years old, each title still commands a $30 or more price tag, or $45 in the case of the physical Zelda title. Players can now jump into these two titles, which are some of the best of what the 3DS has to offer, just for $20 each.

Additionally, third title Ultimate NES Remix offers incredible value at a $20 price point. The game bundles together some of the most popular NES games of all time, including the original Mario Bros., three Super Mario Bros. titles, Punch-Out, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda 1 and 2, and Kirby's Adventure, among others. Many of the games have been enhanced, too, including Championship Mode challenges and a selection of ever-evolving daily challenges. Check out some of what the game has to offer it its trailer, and be on the lookout for each of these three new Selects releases on February 5.

Aside from good games at a good price point, news of these Selects titles seems to quell the recent suspicion that Nintendo may have been working on a Switch-enhanced remake of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. For those who might not remember, many speculated that an all-new version of the game might be in the works when Nintendo started asking media outlets for permission to use various quotes. For now, there's no other reason to think that A Link Between Worlds could come to the Switch, but players can still hold out hope.
