TwinBee Is The Next 3D Classic For Nintendo 3DS


Nintendo revealed another 3DS Classic for the Nintendo 3DS today — TwinBee, originally released by Konami as a coin-operated arcade game in 1985, is another vertical shooter, similar to Xevious.


TwinBee was later ported to the Famicom. In TwinBee, you uncover bells from underneath clouds by shooting at them. If you shoot the bells, they change colour, and depending on the colour, give you different power-ups, bonus points, or increase the speed of your ship.


While the original version of TwinBee had support for two players, the 3D Classic version will only support one. The game will be released on the eShop on August 10th for 600 yen ($7.75).
