Three classic Nintendo 3DS games are joining the Nintendo Selects discount program: Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, and Star Fox 64 3D. All three games will be available for $19.99 and sport the Nintendo Selects packaging starting Feb. 4.

Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS is the portable version of the Wii U hit that lets you make your own Super Mario levels. The editor includes four distinctive eras and dozens of items and special effects to create an infinite and endlessly replayable list of 2D levels. The 3DS version includes touch screen controls and 100 pre-assembled courses in the Super Mario Challenge. It’s rated E for Everyone.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is a 3D remaster of the 2000 classic sequel to Ocarina of Time. Link must race to save the city of Termina from destruction at the end of a crashing moon, using time-travel to help people, solve quests, and explore dungeons. It’s rated E10+.

Star Fox 64 3D is a remake of the 1997 Star Fox game for the Nintendo 64. Control Fox McCloud’s Arwing starship as you blast your way through the planets of the Lylat system and square off against the evil Dr. Andross. The 3DS version includes the original 64 Mode and a new 3DS Mode which includes improved balancing and objectives. A more difficult Expert mode can also be unlocked as you play. Star Fox 64 3D is rated E10+.

Nintendo Selects is an excellent way to pick up great first party Nintendo games for cheap, though currently there are no Switch games in the program. Other Nintendo Selects games include Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
