It's another somewhat uneventful Nintendo eShop update except for the Virtual Console releases of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the Wii U and the original Mario Bros. for the 3DS. Castle Clout 3D is new though, so it should be worth checking out for 3DS owners.
Virtual Console on Wii U
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past – Considered one of the greatest video games ever made, the Super NES classic follows hero Link as he searches for Princess Zelda in twisting mazes, dark dungeons, mysterious palaces and shadowy forests. Traversing both Light and Dark Worlds, he must navigate eight dark dungeons, fighting evil enemies and huge bosses.
Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS
Mario Bros. – Mario Bros. is the first game to feature Mario and Luigi together. Help the two brothers clear stages by collecting coins and avoiding enemies in this action classic.
