[3DS eShop Thread]3DS Virtual Console
Mega Man 2 (Capcom, $4.99) — It's more Mega Man goodness, bringing classic NES robot master battling to you on the go. With all six NES titles coming to the 3DS Virtual Console in the coming months, we can expect lots of classic Blue Bomber gaming, with this entry arguably representing one of the finest classic series releases. We'll be blasting through the 3DS version for a review, but in the meantime you can check out our Wii Virtual Console Mega Man 2 review.
3DS retail demo
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan (Atlus, free) — The latest entry in this challenging but popular RPG series is now only a few weeks away in North America, and as promised there's now a demo to get the adventure started. The best thing is that your progress can be carried across to the retail game should you take the plunge; you can't ask for fairer than that.
3DS retail downloads
Brain Age: Concentration Training (Nintendo, $29.99) — The Brain Age series was hugely popular on DS, so Nintendo will be hoping that this new and challenging entry will repeat that success on 3DS. This one focuses on short exercises to improve your focus, and arrives on the eShop alongside the retail release on 10th February; we're putting our minds to bringing you a review soon.
Three previously released retail titles are also making their first appearances on the eShop:
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 3D (Konami, $TBC) — available from 12th February
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D (Ubisoft, $29.99)
Rayman 3D (Ubisoft, $29.99)
Ah! Heaven (CIRCLE Entertainment, 200 Nintendo Points) — One of a number of planned releases from CIRCLE in the next few months, this platformer looks set to offer simple gameplay and 24 stages at a budget price. We'll see whether it's a divine gaming experience in our upcoming review.
Please use this thread to discuss current and future DSi downloadables, including games, applications, and (should it come to pass) a portable virtual console. Instead of making a specific thread about each game, just ask here. There are plenty of people here whom will help you out - just have some patience! All news and rumors in regards to the DSi shop will be found here.

04/08/09: Welcome to the alpha build of the DSi shop thread! Many things need to be done which I hope I will complete over the next few days/weeks.

Important Information:Note that Nintendo is currently offering 1,000 points free with purchase of a DSi system, so long as you connect it to the shop before October 5th of this year. So you have roughly six months to do it. It has been noted that this might encourage people to buy a system now versus waiting for a price drop, since it is highly unlikely that a drop will occur before October. (Personally I think a drop might occur in time for the holidays depending on how well this thing sells, which we won't know for a while.)
