We're halfway through November, and the Nintendo Download this week brings third-party retail software into the 3DS eShop! Three retail titles will be made available November 15, and Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion will drop at midnight on November 18. In addition, there's a new digital title in the eShop and two new DSiWare titles available.

Is Ninja Gaiden confirmed for next week? I just checked that press release Nintendo put out a month or so ago, and it lists Ninja Gaiden as coming November 8. Did they ever revise that date? (It does match up with the other games you listed, but the fact that Ninja Gaiden isn't out yet makes me worry...)
I am suprised by the lack of psn/xbla games being ported over for launch though, I would have thought they would have been a no brainer. Lets hope games like Trine 2 do really well and prove there is a market there. I will be getting a few eShop titles when I hook my Wii U up on Christmas Day.
To further confuse things, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is in the Virtual Console menu on the 3DS eShop. There's no tab to download, but it's in the list of available games, right next to Castlevania: The Adventure.
Really wish Power of Illusion was $30 instead of $40, it's only $10 difference but still... $40 for a game that is mediocre at best (even if it's better than the demo would have one believe) is a hard sell.
I'm definitely downloading Trine 2. I remember hearing on RFN that Cloudberry Kingdom is going to be pretty good as well. Not sure about the other games, Im not familiar with any of those. Anyways, I'm not going all silly nilly, hell I sill have a ton of Wii and 3DS games to play, like Mario Galaxy 2, Skyward Sword, Xenoblade, and the list goes on and on. Hell, I have not even played New Super Mario Bros Wii...well at least not all the way through. I think I'm on the 4th world in that game, though I will probably start it all over when I do finally end up playing it.
