3DS seems to be hitting its stride: Game Gear titles, new demos, and NES titles hit the eShop

We have know since the latest Nintendo Direct conference that Game Gear games were coming to the 3DS, but until today, we didn’t know exactly when. It appears that not only will the eShop receive Game Gear titles starting next week, NES titles will be available for purchase this Thursday starting with the NES version of Punch-Out!! (the Mr. Dream version).

The Game Gear will receive three titles in the eShop next week, including Shinobi, Sonic Triple Trouble, and Dragon Crystal. In addition, there will be a few original title coming ‘soon’ to the eShop such as Ketzal’s Corridors, Fun! Fun! Minigolf Touch!, and Colors! 3D, which is an updated version of the free DS homebrew game Colors!

Maybe most exciting is that a demo for the highly anticipated title Rhythm Thief will be hitting the eShop, joining the ranks of Resident Evil: Revelations and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D in providing great demos before the official release of the game.

Looks like the 3DS is starting to pick up steam, and doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon!
