Here's a neat collection of games that was being shown on 3DS demo units at E3.

One of the 3DS demos being shown on the E3 show floor is 3DS Classic Collection, a compilation of classic games that can be selected at will. The games shown were:

  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Castlevania
  • Tennis
  • Metroid
  • Mario Bros.
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • The Mysterious Castle Muramase
  • Punch-Out!!
  • Excitebike
  • NES Open Tournament Golf
  • Twinbee (RainbowBell)
  • Super Mario World
  • Smash Ping Pong
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
  • Kid Icarus
  • Urban Champion
  • Mega Man 2

We have no idea if this is set for release or not, but have a look. We apologize for the dodgy camera work.

Do we know if this is an actual game collection or is a preview to the 3DS virtual console we expect to come out?

No clue. A lot of the 3DS demos have no explanation. I can tell you that it looks awesome, and the possibilities of this could be really cool.

Did these games have an added 3d effect?
Where was Nintendo hiding this game on the showfloor?

Yes.  It was one of the tethered, walking demos in the 3DS booth.

They really needed signs at that booth, I didn't even know that people were walking with different things.

These were definitely the hardest things to spot.  They'd group up together so you'd assume they had different games.  Also, it's just awkward to play a video game physically tethered to someone.  Really, it is.

Not if you're into that sort of thing  ;)

With all the trends to DLC, I'm guessing some, if not all of these game would be released through that means.  Especially since they come from various publishers.
