3D Classics: TwinBee Buzzes To The Nintendo eShop This Week


No Virtual Console releases this week, but vertical shooter, 3D Classics: TwinBee, is being released on the eShop instead. Similar to Xevious (also available as a 3D Classic), in TwinBee, one button fires while another drops bombs.


In TwinBee, you can shoot clouds in the sky to uncover bells, which grant extra points or power-ups. Unfortunately, the game’s 2-player mode has been taken out for the 3D Classics release. The game costs $4.99 on the eShop.



Another game on the eShop (and DSiWare) this week is Escape Trick –Ninja Castle-, a puzzle game where you play as Raiko, a ninja trapped inside a castle sprawling with trips. You have to solve puzzles in order to escape alive.


Escape Trick –Ninja Castle- costs $4.99, too.
