REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo 3DS owners are getting an amazing lineup of downloadable games for the holidays and beyond. Original games, classic games and demos will all be making an appearance in the Nintendo eShop. Fans also will soon find downloadable versions of select Nintendo 3DS hits that have already launched as packaged goods.

Nintendo 3DS owners will see a sequel to fan-favorite Pushmo, classics like Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania: The Adventure, plus a series of three original games developed by LEVEL-5 and several well-known Japanese collaborators.

“The Nintendo eShop demonstrates Nintendo’s commitment to providing consumers with unique digital content through a combination of creativity and convenience,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The variety and quality of games coming this year is unmatched, from new entries in established franchises to original properties.”

The following content is scheduled to launch in the Nintendo eShop in 2012:


Crashmo launches Nov. 22. Players can embrace the laws of gravity and challenge themselves with a whole new kind of action-puzzle play in this exciting sequel to the critically acclaimed Pushmo. New gravity mechanics and gadgets like floating blocks, doors and move switches await, testing players’ skills as they push, pull and slide each puzzle’s colorful blocks in order to climb to the top. Just be careful where those blocks are moved—unsupported blocks will come crashing down. Crashmo contains lots of puzzles to test your brains, and enhanced puzzle-creation and -sharing features mean that even when all the puzzles are cleared, the fun never has to stop.


NightSky launches Oct. 25. NightSky is an action-puzzle game that offers an ambient game-play experience with cerebral challenges that fill uniquely designed, picturesque worlds. Each of these worlds is broken into different areas in which the player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance.


Fluidity: Spin Cycle arrives on Dec. 27, letting players tilt, turn and even rotate their Nintendo 3DS system 360 degrees to maneuver a puddle of water named Eddy through a maze-like, magical world. Change from liquid to a block of ice or a steam cloud to solve fun, gravity-defying puzzles and defeat Goop monsters. Fluidity: Spin Cycle features a new storybook setting to explore that spans the ages, from a lost world full of dinosaurs to the modern world and beyond.

Three original games from LEVEL-5 and several well-known Japanese collaborators will launch in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS before this holiday season. The first of these games, SUDA 51’s LIBERATION MAIDEN, is set 100 years in the future, when the president of Japan boards her Liberator, Kamui, and fights to free her country one region at a time. AERO PORTER by Yoot Saito and Yasumi Matsuno’s CRIMSON SHROUD are also slated for release by the end of the year.

Get ready to unleash pedestrian-tossing pandemonium with Grace and Savannah in Tokyo Crash Mobs, a fast-paced action-puzzle game coming to the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS in early 2013. Players will need lightning-fast reflexes and an eye for strategy to survive the three chaotic weeks that lie ahead for our heroines, as they take on anyone and anything that gets in their way.

Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
 
I just read Europe was getting that...now I need to finish the original. I guess those late night feedings will have me occupied for a while, so there we go.

Also, good outlook on the VC front (though it should be weekly, not every other week), but where is Kirby's Dream Land 2?

YES SIR, CRASHMOOOO!! Day one, baby! ...Wait, that comes out Thanksgiving day? Crazy.

Also awesome -- Mario Golf, Castlevania, and Wario Land 2 for GB. But Lost Levels? Lame, Nintendo--give us Super Mario Bros. Deluxe already!

As an eShop fan, I'm quite pleased.

I'm in for Crashmo, Fluidity: Spin Cycle, Wario Land II, and maybe some of those Level-5 games. I should go back to Pushmo sometime...

@TriforceBun

Oh man, I played Super Mario Bros. Deluxe way too much back in the day.

I'd love to have that on eShop

Nintendo is really killing it with the eShop. Cannot wait for Crashmo!

@anon_mastermind

Have you seen it in any Quebec store?

@Guillaume
I read that it was not printed in French (like Endless Ocean Blue World and Metroid Prime Trilogy), so you'll have to grab in from Amazon.ca

Awesome. Pushmo is such a great game.

I just went back to Pushmo the other night. I've still got a few levels, and will definitely be ready when Crashmo comes to town!

Awesome news!

Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D and Mario Kart 7 available as downloads two weeks from now? Sweet. Too bad they're $39.99...

BTW, anon_mastermind, I think this qualifies as a news article! Remember the first paragraph is the intro and will be published accordingly on the front page, FB, and twitter. Perhaps use an intro from the press release?

Lots of cool stuff to look forward to this fall. I'm particularly excited for Wario Land II since I've never played it before.

I feel like my constant Club Nintendo surveys saying I wanted a schedule of upcoming Virtual Console releases finally paid off.

Now where's Mario Golf 64?!

@VofEscaflowne

I dig the new mechanics. It will make the easy puzzles a bit easier, and the hard ones even more maddening...can't wait!
