New Nintendo download schedule for next week in Japan is up!

3d classics twinbee is the next in the series!

TwinBee (ツインビー?) is a cartoon-themed vertical-scrolling shoot 'em up game originally released by Konami as a coin-operated video game in 1985 in Japan. It was the very first game to run on Konami's Bubble System hardware.[1] TwinBee was ported to the Family Computer[2] and MSX[3] in 1986 and has been included in numerous compilations released in later years


http://www.nintendo.co.jp/3ds/eshop/sacj/index.html




Other games released next week(Japan):

Vector racing(500 yen):

6 machines, 12 courses, 4 modes(grand prix. single race, time trial, vs battle) supports local wireless play and online network ranking.



Jazzy Billards 3d(500 yen)


and 200 yen for the first chapter(some would call this a demo) of nazowaku-kan



Also virtual console, our 2nd GBC game, Card battle heroes! (600 yen)

Is that paid demo the capcom sound game? Is it like an apology? "No, we won't even let you buy a demo of MML3, but since you're disappointed we'll find new demos to sell!"
:/ where are free demos?

Yeah I know, not cool. Hopefully this changes as Iwata supposedly addressed a number of eshop issues at the latest investor q&a including demos I think.

Twinbee has weird shit in it like Parodius and you don't restart the level when you die.

He's featured in Parodius as well. The bell item is from this game.

Vector Racing reminds me of Spectre on the Mac (not a racing game, but same visual style). That was a great game.

Yeah, Red Alarm on Virtual Boy was/is. This would obviously have some visual advantages over that.
