3DS to get its own Virtual Console

Next to revealing the Japanese launch date and pricing at its 2010 press conference in Japan today, Nintendo also announced another little tidbit about its upcoming 3DS: the handheld will have its own Virtual Console.

The service was said to be populated with Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles, though no further details other than that it’s coming were revealed. No pricing or availability details just yet.

Two games were put on show though: Super Mario Land and Link’s Awakening.
