Arc Style: Soccer!! 3D (3DS eShop)

Like real soccer, it's better with friends

Hoping against hope to sweep the award for most cumbersomely titled game in the eShop, Arc Style: Soccer!! 3D is here, and it's brought with it a slew of impressive options for customisation.

Review: Dragon Crystal (3DS eShop / Game Gear)

Dragon Crystal (3DS eShop / Game Gear)

Manageable masochism

For a system known for its incredible appetite for AA batteries, the Game Gear makes quite a strange home for the hardcore, permadeath-filled roguelike Dragon Crystal. With absolutely no save option or password system, the game must have caused some incredible bouts of rage when those last spurts of juice ran out. Dragon Crystal...

Shinobi (3DS eShop / Game Gear)

On-the-go ninja, go ninja, go.
