The 3DS was recently updated to allow the glorious Miiverse. However, an image has surfaced showing off a Miiverse community for Contra III: Aliens Wars. What’s significant here is that Contra III is a Super Nintendo game and currently there are no SNES games on the Nintendo 3DS virtual console. Also, no other SNES Wii U communities showed a Nintendo 3DS in the header image, instead they show the Wii U GamePad.
This could potentially mean that SNES games are on their way to the system. Early in the Wii U Miiverse there were several games leaked that turned out to be true. I for one would love to have the Super Nintendo console library available on the go, while many others hope that Nintendo will eventually allow Cross Buy support for virtual console releases so that you own them both on Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS.
What do you think of the SNES possibly being on 3DS virtual console? What SNES games would you like to see?
