Nintendo hasn't released any price points on games that will be available in the eShop. Perhaps the biggest profiled release at the onset is "Super Mario Land," a black and white platformer that marked Mario's first adventure on the colorless GameBoy back in the day.
In other 3DS news, Saturday June 25 is "StreetPass Day." Nintendo is hoping gamers will use the day to meet up and make use of the utility that allows other gamers to drop in and visit the virtual world contained on your 3DS.
In Chicago, Grant Park and Cloud Gate (aka "The Bean") have been mentioned as possible meet ups during the day. Exact plans haven't been finalized just yet, though. You can follow updates on the Facebook group Nintendo 3DS Chicago StreetPass.
