Last week was a bumper Nintendo Download week in Europe, but this week plays catch-up with North America and has some releases that are sure to please retro fans: check out the details below.
3DS Virtual Console
Metroid (NES, Nintendo, £4.50/€5) — Samus' original NES adventure was released on the North American eShop on 1st March, and to 3DS Ambassadors last year.
Strider (Mega Drive, SEGA, 800pts) — One of the classics of the SEGA Mega Drive era arrives on Wii in Europe, an all-action arcade game with a plasma sword as a weapon.
Battle of the Elements (EnjoyUp Games, 500pts) — With a description that mentions the world's destiny but visuals that are cartoony and cute, this puzzle title is certainly interesting.
1st Class Poker & BlackJack (GameOn, 500pts) — This one has emerged from nowhere, but we can safely assume that it's a poker and blackjack title, with the official description also promising local multiplayer as well as integrated voice and text chat.
Shaun the Sheep 3D (Free) —This second episode in the series is called Penalty! and sees Shaun and his pals having a friendly game of football in the barn, until the game reaches new heights when a shot goes out of reach.
Flying Steps (Free) — Flying Steps is apparently Germany's most famous breakdance group, having won multiple awards. They'll be busting some moves in 3D for your viewing pleasure.
