The Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D (wow that’s a long title) demo headlines this week’s selection of downloadable goodies on the eShop. The first ‘official’ NES title also bows in with Super Mario Bros.

I say ‘official’ because the Ambassador Program already saw the release of a bunch of NES classics. But while those games were only for a select group of early adopters, this reissue of the Bros. first appearance is for all to enjoy… for the hundredth time.
