The Nintendo Selects Library expands on 3DS with Mario, Zelda, and NES Remix titles


The Nintendo Selects library of budget titles is growing, with the addition of three new games that will retail for $19.99 a piece.

Beginning Feb. 3, Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and Ultimate NES Remix will be available for purchase with special Nintendo Selects badging on store shelves. 

The games join the ranks of others already in the collection like Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, each for $19.99. There’s a wide variety of titles available at discounted prices, so if you just got a new system over the holidays or are looking to do that in the near future, you can start building your cache of 3DS games pretty cheaply. 

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is set in the same world as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Link can turn into a painting in this game to both travel around in walls, solve puzzles, and interact with parallel worlds.

Super Mario 3D Land turns typical Mario platforming on its head with a new perspective that combines classic level design from the old-school Mario games with 3D gameplay. Lastly, Ultimate NES Remix is a collection of WarioWare-styled challenges based around NES games like Punch-Out!!!, Metroid, Super Mario Bros. 3, and more. 

They’re all worth picking up if you’re late to the 3DS party, so if you’ve got some cash burning a hole in your pocket next month, you may as well grab them since they’re certainly a lot cheaper now than they used to be.
