The second batch celebrating all things Super Famicom hit Nintendo's handheld today.

Following up on last week’s release of Super Famicom games on the New Nintendo 3DS, six more titles were released on the Virtual Console service today in Japan. The titles released today are Kirby KiraKira Kids, Super Famicom Wars, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, Mario’s Super Picross, Pop’n TwinBee and Live A Live. This brings the total number of available Super Famicom games on the 3DS to 37.

Also as mentioned last week, My Nintendo members that purchase any Super Famicom title on the 3DS eShop will receive a free My Nintendo Super Famicom theme for 3DS. The theme is only available between November 21 to December 5.

I played Live A Live a long time ago, it doesn't have much replay value but it left me feeling how some smaller indie games left me feeling. I remember it wrapping up real nice. Also TwinBee is dope. I never thought Nintendo would put them on the VC and now I have a little hope that they can be bought over to the US.

I've actually never played Live A Live. I'm interested in it, though. I did just end up picking up Super Punch Out, though. Believe it or not, I haven't ever played until now!

With Pop'n TwinBee, that was actually released on the Wii U VC in Europe and Australia. Getting a bit late for it to be released in North America, unfortunately, though.
