Pokémon Dream Radar And Cave Story 3D Explore Nintendo eShop

By Ishaan . October 4, 2012 . 8:50am

This week’s Nintendo eShop highlight is Pokémon Dream Radar, an augmented reality game that has you searching for and capturing Pokémon around you, Ghostbusters-style, using the Nintendo 3DS camera.


Pokémon you catch in Pokémon Dream Radar can be transferred to the Pokémon Black/White 2 games, which are out this weekend. Some of these Pokémon include special abilities and are exclusive to Dream Radar. You can find more details here and grab the game for $2.99.


Cave Story 3D is available for download via the Nintendo eShop this week as well. This version of the game has been updated with widescreen support and stereoscopic 3D, as well as additional challenge modes. It costs $9.99.


Moving along, there’s a Nintendo 3DS demo for Style Savvy: Trendsetters available on the eShop as well. The Fashion Contest demo is the first of two demos, and allows you to create an outfit based on the contest theme and compete with your in-game rivals for the prize.


Also available this week are the new downloadable courses for New Super Mario Bros. 2, details of which can be found here. As previously reported, each downloadable course pack costs $2.50 and contains three courses.


Rounding out the eShop releases are Samurai G ($1.99) and the Game Boy Dr. Mario for 3DS Virtual Console ($3.99).


Finally, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone and Crosswords Plus, two retail games that are out in North America today, also have download versions available via the Nintendo eShop. Both games cost $29.99 each.

    This is a pretty great week overall

    EU gets a Marvel Pinball 3D demo and Mole Mania for Virtual Console. Kill me, it hurts to live.

  • Is it bad that I’m a man, and I’m super excited for Style Savvy? XD

      Style Savvy for the DS was awesome! It was a well-constructed game that both genders could enjoy. From the nintendo trailer I expect that Style Savvy: Trendsetters will be even better. I’m a girl who is not interested in shopping for clothes a lot but Style Savvy still became one of my favorite DS games. :D

    • screw gender roles and expectations! men can like fashion(and fashion video games), too!

      No, is not. I downloaded the demo, just because I wanted to experiment and I enjoyed more than I expected. Any person calling this game shovelware is very wrong, this game is really well designed and is kind of addictive. The mechanics are a little simple, but they are very well implemented. My only complaint is the 3D, it wasn’t great at all and the worst part, no 3D during the runway. But aside of this, everything was very enjoyable, I loved dressing my model like a punk, I choose a 3/4 of Nana Osaki (from Nana) and the rest of Kaz from invader zim, the results were awesome. The demo was short, but it left me a good impression, probably I will consider it as a future purchase.

      • I’m so excited for this XD

        /highfive, man! 

  • is it me or did anyone else get the impression(from this article) that the dream radar game was already out? i rushed to go get it, but to no avail!

  • Christopher Nunes

    Wait… isn’t the Pokemon Dream Radar coming out on the same day as Black/White 2 or did I miss something?

  • Quinton Cunningham

    I’m still kinda miffed about Cave Story 3D. I bought the original from the eShop and I feel like we should at least get a free or discounted upgrade to the 3D version.
