Free 3D Classics Excite Bike to be offered with 3DSí May update


During its earnings briefing in Tokyo, Nintendo have confirmed that they are to offer Nintendo 3DS owners a 3D Classics version of Excite Bike Ė due to be distributed as a free download alongside the late May firmware update for the handheld.

Alongside this, Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata commented that the company would look into broadening the 3DS Virtual Console beyond simply offering Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles, expanding it to encompass other platforms down the line.

I've heard of Excite Bikes, maybe I'll give it a try when it comes out, after all, it's free.

I wonder what other platforms they'll cover.

Thats pretty cool, i love me some excite bike ^_^.......i would never pay for it again but i sure as hell will take it for free LOL

I have heard that they are going to cover a lot more then just GB and GBC games. In some other reports I have read Nintendo had been talking about covering GBA, Sega GameGear, and i believe NeoGeo games. More than likely Nintendo will just start off with the GB and GBC games and work from there. Either way they have a lot that they can cover with this VC.

That would be cool, GBA and Gamegear games, I have no idea what NeoGeo is lol (seriously, I don't T_T).

I think VC has a lot of potential, and I think it'll get a lot of good games.

By NeoGeo i of course mean NeoGeo Pocket. After all NeoGeo was a home console.

Yeah not many people know or remember the NeoGeo Pocket as it came out in 1999. biggest developer for the system was probably SNK (no s*** right, it was there system LOL).

So if it does come to the VC it will bring such game as "SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium" and "Metal Slug." Some other note worthy games for the system include "Magical Drop," "King of Fighters R-2," "Fatal Fury," "Evolution: Eternal Dungeons (RPG)," and "Dark Arms: Beast Busters (action RPG)." There was also a great card battle game on the system and an RPG that was kind of like Pokemon but using robots.

If you have never had a chance to play a NeoGeo Pocket, then you missed out. The system was way ahead of its time but like a lot of other good hand held system, Nintendo kept things on lock down.

If you have not heard of the system, dont feel bad. It tried to go up against the Gameboy and it failed.....badly. No i mean like REALLY badly. There is a total of maybe 16 to 20 games that were released in the States

The games that were made for it were in color.....but that did not seem to help

Wow, thanks for the info Waterworld, and thanks for the video Budule.

A couple of those games sound interesting, despite only having hearing the title lol.

Yup, never heard of it or the console, and I don't even recall the commercials. Perhaps I'll look into the games though if they come out on VC.
