It's a bit of a catch-up week this week as we're getting American seconds. No Game Gear games this week either yet; perhaps they'll be here next week instead.
3DS Virtual Console Metroid (NES, Nintendo, $7.50) — Samus' debut performance is finally here to buy on the eShop. If you're an Ambassador you can update the game for free to the final version. For everyone else it's a cheap investment into one of Nintendo's classic adventures.
Virtual Console Strider (Mega Drive, SEGA, 800 Points) — You SEGA fanboys have been talking about this game for months on Twitter, and being in the Nintendo camp as a kid I never really played Strider. Perhaps I should look into it.
Nintendo Video Kid Icarus: Uprising — Original 3D Animation Series — An original animation series from Nintendo for the 3DS, in 3D. Split over six weeks there will be a new instalment every two (they come in two parts). Thanatos Rising is the first episode.
Small update this week, but a powerful, bountiful one.
