Posted by Damien McFerran
Surfing, retro pockets and the long-awaited La-Mulana!
Roll up, roll up, it's another generous helping of digitally-downloaded goodness from our North American Nintendo Download report! Feast your eyeballs on the following treats and start counting those virtual pennies - there's purchasing to be done.
Rising Board 3D (odenis studio, $2.99) — Set in the same wacky world as Pop Island, this unique title mixes together surfing and stunt-work to create one of the most visually striking eShop games we've seen so far. Unfortunately we had mixed feelings about the gameplay, so be sure to check out our Rising Board 3D review before buying.
It's your last Chance to Get Pokédex 3D, this free download will be withdrawn from the eShop on 1st October. Pokédex 3D Pro will be arriving on the 3DS eShop on 8th November to take its place for a price.
3DS eShop Demo
The "Denpa" Men: They Came By Wave (Genius Sonority Inc - free demo) - Mysterious little creatures called "Denpa" Men float around near radio waves. You can't see them normally, but you can find them and catch them in this dungeon RPG for Nintendo 3DS. Download the demo for now to see what you think — the full game is out on the 27th September, along with our review.
Meat or Die: Naomi - Your favorite dim-witted dinosaurs are back on the search for meat! This time, when Yans is tempted to go vegetarian, Gans snaps him out of it and refocuses their attention on their next big prize: Naomi. (For Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo 3DS XL)
Retro Pocket (UFO Interactive Games, $4.99 / 500 pts ) - Retro Pocket is a fun and exciting video game that brings you back to the glory days of LED handhelds! Watch out for our review.
La-Mulana (EnjoyUp Games, 1000 Points) — This game's epic quest to WiiWare is almost as thrilling and action-packed as an Indiana Jones movie. Thankfully, there's a happy end to this tale as La-Mulana is now available in North America (and Europe) and looks better than ever. Our review is still in the works but we'd be very surprised if this turns out to be anything but amazing.
If you own a Wii then there's a very good chance you'll be picking La-Mulana this week. Regardless of your choice, be sure to take a second or two to vote in our all-important poll below.
