This week’s eShop update serves up something a little special for 3DS gamers who are old enough to remember Nintendo’s Game & Watch series that proved a massive success during the 80s. The Game & Watch Gallery 2 can be found under the Virtual Console section of the eShop and includes five classic titles that are playable in both their original and remastered forms.
The latest DSiWare title is Cat Frenzy - a cute, three-in-a-row puzzle game that looks like it could be a great entry level puzzler for kids.
Here’s this week’s eShop Update in full:
