Nintendo's latest conference wrapped up in Japan a few hours ago. Perhaps the most exciting announcement was the confirmation that the Nintendo 3DS will have its own Virtual Console service that will offer classic Game Boy and Game Boy Color games for download. So far, Nintendo's website only shows screen shots for Super Mario Land and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX.

A Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary edition DSi XL was also announced for Japan, and will be released there on October 28.

Nintendo's conference website has new screen shots and release info for 24 upcoming games. Here's a list of the Mario titles along with their Japanese release dates:

* Paper Mario (tentative title) - TBD
* Mario Kart (tentative title) - TBD

* Mario Sports Mix - 11/25/2010
