Nintendo's eShop schedule includes Pushmo sequel and more

4:30 PM on 10.04.2012 // Jordan Devore

Nintendo has revealed its 3DS eShop schedule for the rest of this year, which includes full retail titles, download-only original games, more Virtual Console releases, and some demos.

Nicalis is bringing NightSky over to 3DS on October 25, followed by Crashmo, a sequel to fan-favorite puzzler Pushmo, that hits on November 22 and Fluidity: Spin Cycle, due out on December 27.

At some point during the holiday season, three games from Level-5 and prolific Japanese developers will be available. Those are Suda 51's Liberation Maiden, Yoot Saito's Aero Porter, and Yasumi Matsuno's Crimson Shroud. There's also Tokyo Crash Mobs, an action-puzzle title releasing in early 2013.

Deep breath! Additionally, the eShop will be getting Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, and Mario Kart 7 on October 18. These games are $39.99 each, which, frankly isn't that expensive considering how well Nintendo software retains its value.

Virtual Console hasn't been getting the love I would like it to, but these upcoming titles don't hurt:

  • Mario Golf (launches Oct. 11)
  • Castlevania: The Adventure (launches Oct. 25)
  • Ninja Gaiden (launches Nov. 8)
  • Zelda II - The Adventure of Link (launches Nov. 22)
  • Wario Land II (launches Dec. 20)
  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (launches Dec. 27)

As for the aforementioned game demos, those are going to be: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!!, Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, LEGO The Lord of the Rings, Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Specific dates were not disclosed, although we do know that a second demo for Style Savvy: Trendsetters is coming out on November 1.

It's terrific to see Nintendo put a real, noticeable effort into supporting the eShop -- and talking about said support so that it doesn't go unnoticed. Who would have predicted that Pusho would get a follow-up? Not me! Here's some footage of the new game courtesy of GoNintendo:

I cast my little worm in to the pond for a topic to try to make a blog about today. I fish fish fish but nothing bites bites bites.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!

Those N64-era THQ wrestling games have actually held up really well over the years. Take that, nostalgia!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.
