Wired reports: "Nintendo has set a rock-bottom price point of $1.99 for eShop games. Of the three Game Boy games available, Super Mario Land will cost $3.99, and Alleyway and Radar Mission will cost $2.99."
The only two other pieces of software to come out are the 3-D enhanced version of Excitebike and an interactive Pokémon strategy guide.
edit - Might as well copy the rest of the info pertaining to the eShopWired said:
Some applications will be free, though. The Pokédex 3D application will be free forever, and Nintendo is giving away the 3-D version of Excitebike for the first 30 days that the shop is online.
Wired.com got an early preview of the software, and found the eShop easy to navigate, with detailed search features that allow users to find and preview games. The eShop looks quite a bit like the 3DS’ home menu, a scrolling “shelf” of square icons, each of which represents a category of games.
Wharton says his group has a lot of flexibility in determining what categories to display on the shelf — it could use the interface to promote all the games in the Mario series, for instance, or to push two-player games, games that start with the letter W, etc.
Excitebike is the first classic game that will be given a 3-D facelift on 3DS, Nintendo said. It will be available for free for the first 30 days.
When you’re trying to decide on a game, you’ll be able to view up to six dual-screen screenshots and six dual-screen videos of each title. Nintendo has toyed around with the issue of whether to release demo versions of games, but Wharton did not show us any such functionality in the eShop demo.
If you already own games on your DSi, you’ll be able to transfer them over to your 3DS, Wharton says. When the eShop goes live, a System Transfer application will be uploaded to the DSi shop. You’ll download that to your DSi system, then use it to move the games over. Once you move the games over, they will be deleted from your DSi and left on your 3DS. If you have games on both a DSi and a DSi XL, you can transfer them all to a single 3DS, Wharton says.
The Game Boy games are simple ROM dumps of the classic titles with no tweaks. The only option players have is that they can view the games in solid black-and-white colors, or in the classic gray-and-green scheme that more closely mimics the original Game Boy’s low-power display. (Wharton pointed out that Super Mario Land and Alleyway were two of the games that Wired.com editors asked for in a recent feature. True enough. Only 28 more to go!)
Nintendo says it will add games from the TurboGrafx and Game Gear consoles later.
