Don't mind him, he's mostly 'armless

Wait, what? Another 3DS Virtual Console game? And this one's a Game Boy Color release? Well, if that don't just beat all. Here's what's up and at 'em in this week's bunch.

3DS Virtual Console

Rayman (Game Boy Color, Ubisoft, $4.99, 70 blocks) — The limbless hero lands in Europe today too, so it's a big helping of running and jumping for everyone. We'll have a full appraisal of the helicopter-haired adventurer's portable game very soon.

Virtual Console

Metal Slug 3 (Neo Geo, SNK, 900pts) — Marco and crew return for more shooting action in this SNK classic. It was released in Europe last week so we'll have a review for you very soon.

3DS Download Software

Kakuro by Nikoli (HAMSTER, $4.99, 281 blocks) — A self-explanatory stablemate for Sudoku by Nikoli, this is more number-crunching action for your 3DS. We'll bring you a review shortly.


99seconds (EnjoyUp Games, 200pts, 48 blocks) — The follow up to the rather good 99bullets, this time you have to survive for as long as possible with power-ups on your side. We'll bring you a review soon (though it might take longer than 99 seconds.)

3DS Demos

Order Up!! — Promised last week, now you can try out SuperVillain Studios' 3D take on its famous kitchen creation.

And there you have it, the last Nintendo Download before E3 (sorry). What tickles your fancy this week?
