Petition for Nintendo to put SNES VC games on the regular Nintendo 3DS's eShop

Noah McGlone started this petition to Nintendo

In the 3/3/16 Nintendo Direct, it was announced that SNES Virtual Console games will be coming EXCLUSIVELY to the "NEW" Nintendo 3DS. Games like Super Mario World, Earthbound, and Donkey Kong Country 2 will be unobtainable to those with regular Nintendo 3DS.

Here is the issue: The Nintendo 3DS is more than capable of handling an older title. Nintendo is shunning a large portion of their customers simply because they do not have a slightly more powerful model of a system that has been around for 5 years.

Nintendo has stated that the SNES Virtual Console titles will include exclusive features that no other VC game has, such as "Perfect Pixel" mode, which allows players to experience the game in its original resolution. There have been many different 3DS games, such as Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS, that have included "New" Nintendo 3DS features, but not required a "New" Nintendo 3DS system.

My one request: Release the titles on the regular Nintendo 3DS's eShop without the exclusive features.

I, myself, have dreamed about playing SNES games on my Nintendo 3DS for a long time (especially Earthbound), and I want to give everyone an opportunity to share that dream.
