Nintendo’s detailed its launch line-up for the eShop coming to 3DS next week.

In the UK for Virtual Console, you’ll have a choice from GameBoy of Super Mario Land, Tennis and Alleyway, as well as NES title Excitebilke for free until July 7.

A 3D Pokedex application for Pokemon will also be made available for free.

In Japan, you’ll get Mystery P.I.: The Missing Film and 3D Block Breaker for ¥500.

Virtual Console will get six titles at launch, all of which come from GameBoy. They are Kirby’s Adventure, Super Mario Land, Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge, Baseball, Avenging Spirit and Downtown Special: Its Kunio’s Period Piece, Assemble Everyone!! for ¥400 each.

No flash support for browser

As part of the 3DS update which features eShop, the internet browser will be introduced, but will not feature flash support. You’ll be able to upload photos online using the browser, but will not be able to look at anything flash-related.

You’ll also be able to download pictures onto your SD card and view in the 3DS picture gallery.

The 3DS firmware update hits June 6 in the US and June 7 in Japan and Europe.

Thanks, Siliconera.

    “What is this, Safari?”

    No, it’s common sense.

    I don’t really mind there is no flash support. Most of the web is going to HTML5, so if there is support for that, I am okay with it. And even then: I mostly have a PC with me close by hand (or smartphone) so I don’t really mind haha.

    In what way is the lack of flash support common sense in regards to a handheld browser?

    Especially in the case of the 3DS where there isn’t any HTML5 support either so 3DS owners are almost completely shafted in this regard.
