Soccer Up 3D Screens Viewable Via This Handy QR Code

Cameras at the ready

EnjoyUp Games has been busy in recent weeks releasing titles such as La Mulana on WiiWare and Abyss on DSiWare. Its next project is Soccer Up 3D, which as you may have guessed makes the leap onto the 3DS eShop. Soccer Up! has previously been released on WiiWare but obviously didn’t include any 3D visuals. Helpfully, EnjoyUp...

Nintendo Download: 15th November 2012 (North America)

15th November 2012 (North America)

Mickey gets epic, monster shooting, Myst and more

It's Thursday, which comes before Friday, but also means Nintendo Download day. This week throws up a fair bit of content on 3DS, including four retail downloads with one high-profile release and the return of a PC classic, while DSi owners also have a couple of options to look forward to. Feast your...

News: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Coming To European eShop

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Coming To European eShop

Just not right away

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition will be available to download via the eShop on the same day the Wii U launches over in Japan and it has now been confirmed that European Wii U owners will be getting the same treatment, albeit not straight away. European Wii U owners will be able to download a copy of the game at some...

Review: Fallblox (3DS eShop)

Fallblox (3DS eShop)

Drop 'em like they're blox

Meet Fallblox – a game so clever that its very title could be a brand new synonym for “mindboggling”. Predecessor Pullblox / Pushmo remains one of the best titles on the 3DS eShop, an extremely smart puzzler that's fantastic value for money. Fallblox, known in North America as Crashmo, is no lazy sequel: it takes...

Nicalis Blasting onto 3DS eShop with Guxt

Shmup from Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, creator of Cave Story

Nicalis may have a rather questionable record of localising its download titles in all regions — mention Cave Story on DSiWare or the 3DS eShop to a European and see what happens — but it does actively seek to bring high-quality indie releases to Nintendo systems. When you consider that...

News: Pokédex 3D Pro Tops 3DS eShop Chart in North America

Pokédex 3D Pro Tops 3DS eShop Chart in North America

Not too high a price to pay, clearly

Pokédex 3D Pro was a high profile release on the eShop in last week's Nintendo Download update, bringing enhancements and extra features from the original freebie, Pokédex 3D. That said, many members of the Nintendo Life community were unhappy with the price, which is $14.99 in the US, €14.99 in Europe and...

News: Ubisoft Plan To Sell Wii U Retail Games Via The eShop

Ubisoft Plan To Sell Wii U Retail Games Via The eShop

Uplay service also incoming

Nintendo are being secretive as always about their plans to bring retail Wii U games to the eShop but that hasn't stopped third party developers from getting the ball rolling with their own digital plans for the new console. Namco Bandai has already confirmed that Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition will be available...

Review: Dress To Play: Cute Witches! (3DS eShop)

Dress To Play: Cute Witches! (3DS eShop)

Half witch, half craft

Older gamers might look at Dress to Play: Cute Witches! and see echoes of the Cotton series, or Magical Chase. Cute witches (lowercase) are certainly no strangers to shoot-'em-ups, and this game aims to combine a simplified (and bullet-free) version of that side-scrolling action with a dress-up element for character...

Developer Interview: Shin'en Multimedia on Nintendo, eShop Development, 3DS and Wii U

Shin'en Multimedia on Nintendo, eShop Development, 3DS and Wii U

Blasting onto eShop

With the 3DS eShop continuing to grow, and the Wii U equivalent already shaping up with an increasingly encouraging range of confirmed titles, there’s plenty of positivity around Nintendo’s download offerings. Like any platform it still has its detractors and issues, such as the occasional broken mess on the release...

Review: Johnny Hotshot (3DS eShop)

Johnny Hotshot (3DS eShop)

A total misfire

From the studio that brought us such eShop disappointments as Zombie Slayer Diox, Samurai G and clear game of the year contender Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Room, we now get a Western-themed mess called Johnny Hotshot. And it manages to feel almost consciously terrible. The story of this game is irrelevant, but since the developer saw...

Fallblox Crashes Into Europe on 15th November

Mallo returns

Fallblox — or Crashmo in North America — is one of a number of highly anticipated eShop games arriving before the end of the year. It hits North America on 22nd November, but anxious Europeans wondering about their release date can now relax, as it's arriving in the region one week earlier on 15th November. Nintendo's also...

First Image of Wii U eShop Surfaces

Mario and Luigi have never looked better

While Nintendo has been keeping the Wii U's download retail system under wraps, the first picture of the console's eShop has now been released on Nintendo of Japan's website. The lone image shows off the system's interface, which looks similar to the 3DS' online storefront, and Nintendo is also promising...

Nintendo Download: 8th November 2012 (North America)

8th November 2012 (North America)

Paper Mario, Pokédex, dress up witches and dragons

It's that time again, when we drop everything we're doing to fire up the 3DS eShop, DSi Shop and maybe, on occasion, the Wii Shop. Yes, it's the Nintendo Download update, and this week has a mixture of retail treats, a demo and some lesser known download titles. Let's get to it. 3DS Download...

Capcom Hopes To Bring Entire NES Mega Man Series To 3DS Virtual Console

Some issues holding it back

An interview with Capcom Senior VP Christian Svensson and Capcom Community Manager Brett Elston in the latest Nintendo Power suggests that the company is planning on bringing all six of the NES Mega Man titles to the 3DS Virtual Console. We've already seen the first game in Japan and Europe, while a further three titles...

Review: Pokédex 3D Pro (3DS eShop)

Pokédex 3D Pro (3DS eShop)

It's evolution, baby

Admit it – if you were ever a fan of Pokémon, you probably wanted a Pokédex. The best-forgotten LCD-screened plastic versions aside, the 3DS eShop's Pokédex 3D was the first time you could hold the all-knowing electronic encyclopaedia in the palm of your hand – the catch was that it only contained the 150 Unova-region...

Review: Monster Shooter (3DS eShop)

Monster Shooter (3DS eShop)

Monster mulch

Even gurning, gun-toting monsters have their softer sides. Just ask Dum Dum, the hero of Monster Shooter, who stamps through 60 alien-infested levels reducing anything in his way to viscera and goop after his beloved kitten is abducted. Though we're sure any answer you might get would involve more firearms than words. Monster Shooter...

Crashmo 3D Screens Are Just a QR Code Away

A sneak peak

Crashmo — known as Fallblox in Europe — is one of the 3DS eShop's big releases due before the end of the year. As a follow up to the critically acclaimed Pushmo, it's likely to be on a number of 3DS owner's wishlists. Of course, 2D screenshots don't necessarily do this title justice, especially with the extra depth to the new...
