Nintendo’s 3DS eShop is taking no prisoners for the remainder of 2012.
In addition to nicalis’ Cave Story today and NightSky on October 25, the Pushmo sequel, Crashmo, hits November 22 and the sequel to the WiiWare puzzle platformer Fluidity, Fluidity: Spin Cycle arrives December 27.
Three quarters of Level-5’s Guild 01 game compilation will be available by the end of the year: Suda51’s Liberation Maiden (pictured above), Yoot Saito’s Areo Porter and Yasumi Matsuno’s Crimson Shroud. Rental Bukiya de Omasse by Yoshiyuki Hirai, a rhythm game about forging weapons for heroes, seems to be the odd man out.
Shin’en’s Nano Assault EX, an updated version/variant of the retail Nano Assault with Circle Pad Pro support, is also slated to release before the end of the year.
The Virtual Console, not to be left out, also has a whole mess of titles for 3DS owners. Before the end of 2012, you can expect:
- Mario Golf (10/11)
- Castlevania: The Adventure (10/25)
- Ninja Gaiden (11/8)
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (11/22)
- Wario Land II (12/20)
- Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels (12/27)
This digital push from Nintendo is a little surprising (though not TOO surprising given how good their summer offerings were), but definitely welcome. I’ll probably be downloading the majority of these games myself. Can’t wait!
