Kid Icarus: Of Myths And Monsters Flies To U.S. Nintendo eShop


This week’s 3DS Virtual Console downloads are Kid Icarus: of Myths and Monsters—the Game Boy sequel to the original Kid Icarus game—and Tumblepop, an arcade game by Data East where you fight off aliens using a vacuum cleaner. The former costs $4 while the latter costs $3.


This week’s Game of the Weekend discount is on a Virtual Console title, too—Mario’s Picross for $3 (down from $4).


On the original 3DS games front are two games: The Phantom Thief Stina and 30 Jewels ($5), a top-down game where you play as a cop or a thief trying to protect or heist a bunch of jewels, and Masyu by Nikoli ($5), a game with “Masyu” puzzles.
