Nintendo of America has updated the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS with exciting new Virtual Console software. According to a press release shared by the company on April 17, NES classic Super Mario Bros. 3 is now available for digital purchase for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. In addition to the release of Super Mario Bros. 3, the Wii U eShop now hosts a duo of new GBA Virtual Console titles to select from.

This is an exciting week for the Nintendo eShop as both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U have received a number of quality software releases. The most notable of the bunch is Super Mario Bros. 3, which is available on both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShop. Joining Mario on the Wii U eShop is a duo of GameBoy Advance titles as Golden Sun and F-Zero: Maximum Velocity are now available for the Wii U.

Golden Sun, developed by Camelot, is one of the premiere RPGs for the GBA and now the Wii U. Mastering the use of Psynergy and using the powerful elemental deities known as Djinn, players must stop the forces of darkness. You can find a trailer for Golden Sun here. The second GBA title is F-Zero: Maximum Velocity. Offering the great high-speed action you have come to expect from an F-Zero game, Maximum Velocity is a thrilling racer that packs all the intense and challenging racing action fans have come to expect from an F-Zero title. You can find a trailer for F-Zero: Maximum Velocity here.

Other releases this week include: Flowerworks HD: Follie’s Adventure and My First Songs for the Wii U, and Bit Boy!! ARCADE and Smash Cat Heroes for the Nintendo 3DS.

Lastly, Ubisoft will discount a couple of their Nintendo Wii U titles starting on Monday, April 21. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and ZombiU will see a considerable price reduction. Starting next week, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be available for $39.99 from the Nintendo eShop, while ZombiU will be marked down to $29.99.
