Donkey Kong and 3D Sonic highlight the downloads this week.
As Christmas approaches, the Nintendo eShop is picking up good games left and right. This week is no different as the Sega 3D Classics collection gets more games. The Gaming Friends collection on the eShop continues for another week and another Nintendo favorite gets his moment in the sun. Let’s get right into this!
The Sega 3D Classics gain two games this week where classic is the perfect word for them. Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario were right in the middle of the Sega/Nintendo console wars and it still feels weird seeing Sonic on Nintendo. Sonic games have been on Nintendo consoles for a while now but the fastest hedgehog around started his fight with Dr. Robotnik (will not be calling him Eggman, get over it). Relive the speed that gamers fell in love with years ago and to change it up a little bit, this version allows Sonic to use the Spin Dash move and has the zone select option.
The other Sega 3D Classic is Altered Beast, a game where you can shape shift into different beasts. You’ve been summoned/resurrected by Zeus to rescue Athena from Neff. The game supports local multiplayer and random transformations. Two of the other games this week are Donkey Kong 3 and the Legend of the Mystical Ninja. As I might have mentioned a couple of times, the eShop has plenty of games on sale and this week is no different. The Gaming Friends collection comes to a close this week with Donkey Kong being the center of attention. Donkey Kong, DK Junior, and Game and Watch DK Junior on the 3DS and DK, DK3, and DK Junior are available on the Wii U Virtual Console service. Also available this week: Brilliant Hamsters (3DS eShop), Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2(3DS eShop), and Hooked on Bass Fishing (Dsiware/3DS eShop). Enjoy the games everyone!
