A double 3DS delight
Frustrated that Japan is getting all the 3DS Virtual Console games before Europe? The comeback starts here, with two games released on the portable's download retro service this week, as well as a pair of DSiWare games and even a WiiWare adventure too. Read on.
3DS Virtual Console
QIX (Nintendo, €3/£2.70) — The classic grid-dividing arcade game comes to 3DS. You've probably played QIX and its variants before, but if the idea of a spot of line-drawing has your knees knocking, check back later this week for our review.
ANIMA: Ark of Sinners (ANIMA Games Studios, 1000pts) — A side-scrolling adventure with more than a hint of Castlevania, this is one of the most promising looking titles to emerge on WiiWare in a long time. Our review this week will tell you if it's been worth the wait.
Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp (Digital Leisure, 800pts/€8) — Dirk the Daring goes forth once more in this animated tale of bravery and quick time events. Read through our Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp review, being careful to observe the button prompts.
Don't forget that 3D Classics: Excitebike will cease to be free on 7th July, so buy it before then if you're after it.
