Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo Swinging Into The 3DS eShop Next Week

Posted by Andy Green

Little Acorns has gone turbo

Pixel Toys has announced Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo will be coming to the 3DS eShop next week.

It stars Mr. Nibbles, a busy little squirrel who has a large family to feed. Unfortunately for him, his acorn stash has been nabbed by a bunch of annoying woodland creatures. If he's going to feed his kids, then he's going to have to get it back.

Being a squirrel, Mr Nibbles is already quite adept at larking about in the woodlands, however he also has a grapple rope and a collection of other special power-ups to help him navigate through the hazardous environments.

There's the Tough Nut, which can smash through mud banks, a Super Speed power up to make you move a bit quicker and a Super Jump, which allows you to get your head in the clouds.

Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo is a platformer and features 60 levels - spread through four seasons - to jump, hook and swing through. The original game, Little Acorns, was first available on mobile platforms and this new iteration features 50% new and exclusive level content, some new ninja bonuses, a super high speed Turbo mode - as the name suggests - and some new outfits to dress Mr Nibbles up in.

There are also 30 new challenge stages to play through, offering gold medals for the most skilled of players.

Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo will be in both the European and North American 3DS eShop on 18th April.

Are you looking forward to adventuring with Mr Nibbles? Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts on it in the comments section.

What? Don't go Turbo! You'll get unplugged! (A Wreck It Ralph reference if anyone was wondering)

Looks like some of the other smartphone platformers I have, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. If the price is right, I'd probably get it.

Looks cute.

One question... do you actually use the d-pad to move your character or all you have to do is press jump at specified times?

I NEED to point out this fact to everyone. I can't get xcited about a single downloadable game, even one I think looks cool such as this one. The reason?

When you buy a downloadable title, you do not own it. You are renting it. How long you are renting it can vary, but most likely until you need to change your handheld systems internal battery, which will erase all of the memory. Unlike older systems like Game Boy or Game Gear, which used regular disposable batteries which essentially gave the systems infinite power & memory lifetimes, new systems rely on internal batteries that are only gonna last you a few, maybe 10 years at most.

The PROBLEM, is that in 10 years, once you replace the battery and erase all the games on the internal memory of your 3DS, the eShop probably won't exist anymore. Or it may exist, but some or most of the games have been removed from it for licensing reasons.

You can already see this happening with the Nintendo Wii, even though it is only about 6 1/2 years old and still on the market. Several things are being erased from the Virtual Console and online services like several Sonic the Hedgehog titles, the Wii Channels, and DLC for Rock Band. What that means is, if you once owned these things and accidentally deleted em or had your memory erased, you can NEVER get em back again.

What's the moral of this story? We need to start protesting digital games and get back to retail games. Or else gaming's past won't exist in the future. So start petitions or e-mail developers. The power is yours!

@shinobi88 I think there are EU laws prohibiting that, or there soon will be. There is precedence, such as the ruling allowing the second hand sale of digital content.

@shinobi88 Furthermore, in terms of Wii, if you deleted the games you can just redownload them, even if they've been removed from the shop.

Shinobi, you are taking things too seriously, in my opinion.

It's just games.

Videogames are like fun toys, except cheaper and last longer.

This one looks quite fun.

@shinobi88 I have the same oppinion somewhat. When all this digital download started I was not ever going to download a game. Well.....I have jumped on board and been downloading titles that have not been coming out on Carts. I do prefer carts so much more than Downloads. There have been some very good Digital games such as The Denpamen, Liberation Maiden and lately ATV Wild ride despite the mediocre review has turned into my favorite racing game on 3ds. Now you either choose to download and experience those games or you don't. That's the way it's going to be. At some point all of gaming will become digital download mark my words on that

I'm pretty much going to go for it simply based on the sheer number of adjectives in the title. Haha love it!

@shinobi88,

I agree! If things go terribly wrong, whole decades of GOOD games will be erased! All those shooters and violence fests (+sports titles and anything that is mainstream) get a Retail disc release, while all the interesting and innovative stuff goes straight to download!

It first looked like a dream, indies having a cheap opportunity to get their games realized. But now that we get flooded every day with download news, while there is actually NOTHING happening on the Wii u RETAIL-side, it's starting to become a nightmare!!

@shinobi88 geezus you are a moron. Nintendo is going to give us an account system in the next 10 years (hopefully) and you can always just buy a new 3DS and do a transfer. Dummy. I don't like retail game because they are difficult to maintain over long periods of time. I would rather download most game as they have the Potential!! to last forever. I don't care about authenticate material, I just wanna have the games and keep them forever. And ever and ever and eve- oh crap a Dalek.
