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.
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:
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:
