It's an auspicious day when Europe gets a new piece of 3DS download software, and that's exactly what's on the (SD) cards this week as Nintendo itself publishes another digital delight. Elsewhere there's an ages-old WiiWare game, a pretty poor DSiWare game and the world's most exciting demo.
3DS Download Software
SpeedThru: Potzol's Puzzle (Nintendo, £5.40/€6) — The spiritual successor to WiiWare puzzler ThruSpace, this one's all about rotating blocks and dropping them through holes, now in 3D.
Farming Simulator 2012 (Rondomedia) — Officially licensed farming machinery, rendered in full 3D. Need we say more? Try out a free slice of the farming life later this week.
Pirates Assault (CIRCLE Entertainment, 200pts) — Not the finest of CIRCLE's digital offerings.
Violin Paradise (Keystone Game Studio, 500pts) — Some 18 months after its release in North America, Violin Paradise takes a bow in Europe. It looks nice at least, so that's something.
Wii owners can enjoy the Kirby cartoons all over again as they're back for the next six months.
