Kid Icarus, Kirby Getting 3D Classics Makeovers
Posted by Jon Wahlgren
And PictoChat lives on, sort of
Following the illustrious lead of Excitebike, Xevious, Twinbee and, uh, Urban Champion, Nintendos of Japan and Europe announced that NES gems Kid Icarus and Kirby's Adventure are next in line to go through the 3D Classics transmogrifier. It's the perfect way to catch up on Pit's first and Kirby's arguably best adventure.
3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure comes to Europe on 17th November for €6, with a North American release yet to be revealed.
A few other not-old eShop releases have been confirmed for North American release along with tentative dates and prices. One of the most intriguing of which is Pushmo — called Pullblox in Europe — a 3D puzzler involving pulling and pushing blocks previously revealed as Hiku-Osu in Japan. If the 250 stock puzzles aren't enough, you'll be able to create your own come its release in December.
Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive!, previously known as Picture Lives!, lets players doodle critters and bring them to life in 3D and hits in November for $6.99. Europe gets it on 10th November for €6.
Dillon’s Rolling Western is that 3D tower defence game featuring an armadillo in the WIld West and will be rolling into town in Q1 next year.
Swapnote — or Nintendo Letter Box in Europe — appears to be the 3DS evolution of PictoChat and lets you send 3D messages to friends via SpotPass and StreetPass for free in December. Messages support picture and sound in addition to your likely crude scribbles.
New puzzles and dungeons are also slated to hit StreetPass Plaza in the November system update.
