The SEGA Game Gear finally makes an appearance on the European eShop…
It’s another cracking week for European gamers as more retro quality hits both 3DS and Wii.
This Thursday sees the first slew of SEGA Game Gear titles grace the 3DS eShop. Three classics for low, low prices kick the platform off on Nintendo’s handheld.
Wii isn’t to be left out in the cold though, with its Virtual Console renaissance being continued by the release of Mega Man 5.
The full list of releases is below.
Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble (SEGA) – 3DS Virtual Console – £4.50/5
While the evil genius Dr. Robotnik is testing the ultimate destructive weapon, one of his assistants makes a mistake, causing his lab to explode and scattering five Chaos Emeralds across the planet Mobius. Sonic and Tails spin-dash to rescue them. Tricky Knuckles streaks right behind, with sticky-fingered Nack the Weasel joining the hunt. It’s a triple-threat race to see who will get the Emeralds first. Loop, blast and super spin-dash through six zones, five bonus rounds and a wild 3-D stage.
Shinobi (SEGA) – 3DS Virtual Console – £3.60/3
Destroy the enemies with bombs, shurikens, a crescent blade and more. Use the magic of the ninja to wreak havoc with the force of a tornado or the blinding glow of lightning. When all else fails, turn your body into a living bomb and explode with concussive damage. Do not stop until the City of Fear is annihilated. Are you ready for the challenge of Ninja warfare?
Dragon Crystal (SEGA) – 3DS Virtual Console – £2.70/3
Blaze a trail through the treacherous labyrinths of four magic kingdoms – collecting weapons, armour, magic books, potions, rods and rings as you go. Fend off enormous insects, monstrous centipedes and sneaky sand sharks. Pass through 30 worlds in search of the Magic Goblet. There’s no way out of this musical nightmare…until you find it.
Hints Hunter (CIRCLE Ent.) – eShop/DSiWare – £1.80/2/200 Points
Hints Hunter is a game you can play anytime and anywhere. The objective is simply to find the keys hidden around the game. To do this, you will have to work out the meaning of the hints in each level. Make sure you pay close attention to all the details of the game even think about the name of a level or a tiny flower.
Mega Man 5 (Capcom) – Wii Virtual Cobsole – 500 Points
Proto Man, once the trusted brother of Mega Man, has mysteriously gone berserk, kidnapping Dr Light; forcing Mega Man to go on the offensive. Assisted by his new sidekick Beat, a robotic bird, and his faithful robo-dog Rush, Mega Man must battle through eight thrilling levels and defeat the Robot Masters lurking within. Defy gravity in Gravity Man’s stage, chip away the defences in Stone Man’s stage, and catch some surf in Wave Man’s stage all before the final showdown of the century.
