New 3DS owners can now enjoy playing SNES games via the Virtual Console.

An upgrade to the 3DS Virtual Console was announced during today’s Nintendo Direct. Those with a New 3DS will now be able to play a bunch of classic SNES titles.

The first batch of titles, Super Mario World, F-Zero and Pilotwings, is available right now.

Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario Kart and Earthbound will be added to the collection on March 24.
