I am planning to get a 3DS, and wanted to know what sort of games are up on the 3DS eShop.

I tried checking the Nintendo website, but it only shows a list of "featured" titles, not the entire shop catalog. I assume they want you to look using the device itself (and thereby hopefully buy a game or two)

For those of us without a 3DS, is this information available elsewhere?

I think the question title should be changed to "Where can I find a listing of 3DS eShop titles online?" With the current title I came in here thinking someone was looking for pirated games. – Fambida Aug 10 '11 at 8:44
Yeah now that I read it again it does sound rather dodgy. I will change the title. – Ash Aug 10 '11 at 15:52
I edited the title to specifically make it a question; I think the question itself is a good example of asking how to find a list rather than asking for the list itself ... the latter don't work well on these sites. – Dave DuPlantis Aug 10 '11 at 16:50
@Dave - that was my problem. I knew list questions didn't work well, and I struggled to make it clear that I didn't want a list, but a place to find a list. Thanks for the help! – Ash Aug 10 '11 at 17:55

Wikipedia has a list of Virtual Consoles Games for the 3DS (which include current and upcoming games), and also a list of DSiWare Games and Applications (DSiWare works on the 3DS).

I forgot about the DSiWare games would work as well. Thanks for pointing that out! – Ash Aug 10 '11 at 15:55
