Colourful, intense shoot 'em ups are still a staple in gaming, ideal for unwinding or getting hyped up, whatever takes your fancy. The eShop, on both Wii U and 3DS, has had a few strong shooters to date, but there's definitely room for more.

For fans of the genre there's some good news, as Hyperlight EX now has a final release date on New 3DS; it'll be out on 1st December in North America and Europe, with a price tag of $5.49 / €5.49 / £4.99.

With multiple modes, control options and stereoscopic 3D support, this one's certainly quite tempting. Let us know if it's on your radar.
