Yesterday we got the exciting news that SNES classic Mega Man X is coming to New Nintendo 3DS eShop today. As it turns out, Capcom’s hit action-platformer is not the only retro goodness you can expect. Nintendo has just announced that Nintendo 64 classic Wave Race 64 is coming to Virtual Console today, and you’ll be able to pick it up for $9.99. If riding the waves isn’t your thing, Mario Sports Mix will also see a digital release today, offering some variety. This collection of four Mario-filled sports games (originally released on Wii) will be available today for $19.99. Here’s Nintendo’s breakdown of the two games:

Wave Race 64

Take to the waves on your own personal watercraft!

Choose one of four characters, each with his or her own unique abilities and style, and master the game’s excellent controls. Make your way through nine courses, each with its own challenges. If the ramps, mines, and hairpin turns aren’t enough, you’ll also have to deal with varying weather conditions that can make the water choppy or cover the course with fog. Take a break from racing to try the Stunt Mode. Polish your skills pulling off handstands, rolls, flips, and more!

Mario Sports Mix

Four sports, one game—with a Mario twist!

Mario Sports Mix presents four familiar sports but with a Mario twist. Players can choose from a variety of playable Mushroom Kingdom characters or play as their own Mii characters. In any sport, power-ups can turn the tide of a game in an instant. And in over-the-top Mario sports fashion, each character can unleash their special move!
