A new game is headed to the Nintendo 3DS™ system,
and it won’t be available in stores. Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword™ lets
players travel to ancient Japan and guide a young warrior as he battles waves
of enemy soldiers to save a princess. He must identify the enemy’s attack move,
dodge it by a hair and counter-attack with his own mystical Sakura Sword to win
the battle. The game launches in January.
Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword is just one of many
high-quality, Nintendo-published downloadable games that can be found in theNintendo
On Nov. 24, Nintendo will release the original 2D version of Metroid™ II:
Return of Samus™. This Game Boy™ classic has intergalactic bounty hunter
Samus™ Aran battling Space Pirates as she seeks to destroy Metroids on
SR388. The game lays the foundation for the smash hit Super Metroid™.
In December, Pushmo lets players try to push, pull
and climb their way to the top to solve more than 200 3D puzzles. Play as
Mallo, the hero of the game, who is small in size but has a big heart and big
muscles to match. Players will use him to move the giant blocks that make up
the Pushmo puzzles. Solving the puzzles will free the kids who were
accidently trapped inside them. There is also a Pushmopuzzle creator so
players can make their own puzzles and share them with their friends.
Players who can’t wait to get their hands on these games can
check out some other downloadable games that are available right now in the
Nintendo eShop, such as Freakyforms™: Your Creations, Alive! The game
lets players create all kinds of wild creatures and bring them to life. No
drawing skills are needed, so players of all ages can give it a try. Then they
can customize the color and the look, and add eyes and a mouth before the
creature comes to life and explores its world.
Also currently available is 3D Classics: Kirby’s
Adventure™. The classic Kirby™ game has been re-mastered in 3D. Players
explore the world of Dream Land and help Kirby cross land, sea and sky in his
quest to restore the Star Rod.
