Formally known as Player’s Choice, the Nintendo Selects collection features many essential 3DS, Wii, and Wii U titles that have been made available for a reduced retail price. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will be joining the Nintendo Selects family on February 5th alongside Super Mario 3D Land and Ultimate NES Remix, as all three 3DS classics will soon be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99.
Nintendo announced the latest additions to the Nintendo Selects line earlier today:
“REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 16, 2018 – Starting on Feb. 5, Super Mario 3D Land and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, two of the most acclaimed Nintendo 3DS games of all time, and Ultimate NES Remix, a wildly fun mashup of classic NES games starring classic Nintendo characters, are joining the Nintendo Selects library and will be available at a suggested retail price of only $19.99 each.
The Nintendo Selects library features a wide variety of games for various Nintendo systems, which can each be purchased for the suggested retail price of only $19.99. In addition to the newly added Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Ultimate NES Remix games, other games in the library include classics like Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.

“For people that received a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS system as a holiday gift, these three games are ideal ways to start their gaming library,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re excited to offer these must-have games for a new, low price.”
In Super Mario 3D Land, players run, jump and power up with Mario through multiple colorful worlds. The game is a fun combination of 3D gameplay combined with the more traditional linear designs of classic 2D Super Mario games.
Set in the world of the classic Super NES game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds continues the adventure of the legendary hero of Hyrule. In this critically acclaimed tale, Link can transform into a living painting to cross into a dark parallel world, travel along walls and solve challenging puzzles.
Fans who love retro games and the NES Classic Edition system will also love Ultimate NES Remix, which features rapid-fire challenges and mashups from some of the most recognizable games on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Players take on creative and nostalgic challenges from classic games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda and Punch-Out!!
Anyone looking to play these games on a shiny new system can pick up one of the many systems in the Nintendo 3DS family:

A Link Between Worlds joins other Zelda titles like Ocarina of Time 3D and The Wind Waker HD in the Nintendo Selects library. The game stands out as one of the best titles released for the Nintendo 3DS and a personal favorite of mine, so I’m glad it’s being promoted as an essential part of Nintendo’s catalog.
