The Nintendo Selects banner re-releases some of Nintendo’s most popular games at a budget price. On January 16, Nintendo confirmed three more Nintendo 3DS titles were going to be admitted into the program.


A plethera of fine software has already been reprinted under the Nintendo Selects line, and now Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Ultimate NES Remix are joining them on February 5. Each title will retail for $19.99.

Super Mario 3D Land was the first completely original 3D entry in its series to grace a handheld. Continuing the level design ethos set by Super Mario Galaxy 2, 3D Land featured a collection of tightly designed obstacle courses for Mario (or Luigi) to transverse. Its template also paved the way for its direct Wii U sequel, Super Mario 3D World.

A Link Between Worlds, however, was a direct tribute to its Super NES predecessor, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Sharing its map with it forebear, Worlds’ twist on the formula is painting. Specifically, Link can use paintings to turn himself into 2D, allowing him to explore “a dark parallel world, travel along walls and solve challenging puzzles.”

Finally, Ultimate NES Remix brings in excerpts of some of your favorite NES titles (and Ice Climber), giving players new challenges and twists on treasured classics.
