eShop delivers pre-holiday cheer

Three great additions to the 3DS eShop appeared yesterday…and one’s a terrific freebie!

Swapnote, at the wonderful price of zero, finally arrived to give 3DS users a simple, fun way to send sketches, notes and photos to friends or streetpass strangers. The experience of adding 3D touches to a sketch makes this worth the download, and there’s an option to choose animated stationery!

Mighty Switch Force ($5.99) is another entry in the recent streak of  great 3DS-exclusive download games. This is one polished, beautifully-controlling platformer. I like its on-the-go design, based around competing for the best time in a generous series of quick challenges.

And TetrisGAMEBOY TETRIS–showed up! Hooray! Sure, the world’s full of more flashy versions of Tetris, but no others are as lovable! $3.99!

So, this week the ever-improving and cute-as-all-get-out eShop offers a great freebie, a top-notch platfomer and a welcome stroll down memory lane! Any readers out there picking up one or more? And…whoever you are, anonymous Swapnote writer in the above image, the answer is “Yes, you should get a cake.”
