Will you grab him?

A little something for everyone this week — apart from you, Virtual Console fans — with titles on DSi, WiiWare and 3DS to download. The headline act is undoubtedly the timely appearance of the pink puffball on 3DS, but let's see what else is competing for your money.

3DS Download Software

3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure (Nintendo, $6.99) — Little Kirby's NES adventure gets a 3D makeover. Does it bring the game up to speed or is it best left untouched? Our forthcoming review will tell you more.

Update: We're aware the eShop price is listed at $6.99, while the official Nintendo.com page lists $5.99. We've contacted Nintendo for clarification.


Pinocchio's Puzzle (EnjoyUp Games, 500pts) — It's a co-op jigsaw game based on the story of the wooden puppet whose nose grew. Probably not a thrill-a-minute rollercoaster ride, but we'll bring you a full verdict in our upcoming review.


Play & Learn Chinese (Selectsoft, 800pts) — After the decent Play & Learn Spanish we now have the opportunity to learn some Mandarin Chinese, both written and spoken. We'll have a full review for you soon.

Escape Trick: Convenience Store (Intense Co. Ltd, 500pts) — You've been locked in a convenience store and must escape using only your wits and what you can find. Is there fun in store? Our review will let you know. How convenient.

Nintendo Video
