Hudson was a big supporter of the Wii's Virtual Console, releasing no fewer than 53 games on the service over the past five years. Now it's bringing its little mascot Master Higgins to the 3DS as well with this week's title.

3DS Virtual Console

Adventure Island (Game Boy, Hudson, £2.70/€3) — This is actually based on Adventure Island II on NES, but let's not split hairs. It's still a pretty decent platformer, as you'll read in our review later this week.


Rytmik Retrobits (Cinemax, 800pts) — The latest musical studio software from Cinemax, following on from strong showings in dance, rock and hip hop, this is a retro-styled outing. We'll see if it hits the right notes with a review shortly.

Furry Legends (Gamelion, 500pts) — Gamelion's cuddly furballs make their way to DSi some years after the game was first revealed, and while it's not a perfect platformer, it has its own charms too. Check out our Furry Legends review for more.

WiiWare Demo

3D Pixel Racing (Microforum, full version: 500pts) — We didn't like 3D Pixel Racing very much, but that's not saying you won't love it like it's your own child. You can also read our 3D Pixel Racing review for a bit more information on what the full game's like.

Anything for you this week?
