    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?

    Can someone check on the eShop if this is the US version of MegaMan (if you live in Europe), please ?

    North America and Europe get different downloads each week. I'm not sure if it's available in Europe yet...

    Eh? Tank! Tank! Tank! possibly F2P? I know my kid would love that, and he wouldn't mind a few adverts being splashed on the screen while playing.

    @Deerock69

    I believe EU got it for free a while back and I think you're limited by playtime per day.

    Yes! Countless gamers have been waiting their chance to download Balloon Fight for the 3DS eShop. No longer shall their deep jealousy of ambassador 3DS owners consume them.

    @anon_mastermind

    Well, this is good for ambassadors as it means we'll get the update for download play.

    Apparently Kung Fu Rabbit is quite good. I've heard some people say it's like an easier Super Meat Boy.

    The best news is the sale on Zen Pinball tables. $4.99 for a pack of 4 tables? Yes please! Also 2 or 3 single tables on sale for $1.49 ea, yup, that's a good deal.

    I never liked the Marvel tables that much from what I played on a friend's PS3 :-/

    I'll be grabbing Tank!Tank!Tank! when I get home, hopefully the base version allows for some local multiplayer.

    Kung Fu Rabbit?

    Flashback to 1993 and the 14 hours it took me to download Ninja Rabbit over a 9600 baud modem.

    Rabbits be learning the martial arts for real.
