Not actually that important
Hell yeah, can't wait to finally grab VVVVV for my EU 3DS! -9 days <3

Thanks for making the thread, awesome job as usual Brazil.

I thought this one, together with La Mulana EU/NA, had been cancelled in favour of the upcoming (ah!) eShop "3DSware" Cave Story classic version 3D?

Eco Shooter: Plant 530 (Wii) as well.

Though I can't seem to actually click on any of them for more information, curious what Pictobits is exactly.

Wasn't that one of the first DSiWare titles? It's a part of the Art Style series, which I've heard great things about.

You should probably note that Mario Kart 7 is getting a patch (worldwide) during mid-May to remove a shortcut glitch.

I didn't hear anything about it, although it sounds plausible. I'll check, though.

Well reminded.

So jealous of Japan. Wario III is an amazing game and at 6$ such a value.

Do we even have Wario 1 yet???

What are the differences between Cave Story 3D and Cave Story+ on the eShop?
Cave Story 3D is a complete remake with 3D models, whereas Cave Story+ on the eShop will be the original game (with original sprites) with many of the added features from Cave Story+ on PC, and of course the added 3D effect.

Regarding Cave Story DSiWare: no one said anything about cancelling the EU release of that version yet, apparently. It was supposedly submitted to NoE for approval a couple of weeks ago.

But we all know how Nicalis rolls.

I asked Nicalis about it on twitter a few days ago and this is what I got:

@nicalis Hi! Any news of Cave Story DSiWare being released in Europe? I would kill for it :(

@gerudo90 That's coming soon for 3DS and DSi, then NightSky. Working on final adjustments on the 3D for NightSky.

I guess that if they say it's also coming for DSi it's because they're planning to release at least the DSiWare. I wouldn't be surprised if we europeans get Cave Story DSi this month but have to wait for Cave Story+ for more than a year. It wouldn't make sense to release both versions in a short period of time.

It also makes zero sense to con people for the inferior version then release the + version later on! :O

Pretty sure Nicalis have been saying it was "submitted for approval" for at least a year. That's what it seems like, anyway.

Rad!
I'm going to grab EcoShooter and Snowpack Park for sure - 2 more first-party WiiWare games I won't have to spend Wii Points on. :)

I've gotta scrounge up an extra 150 coins by the end of the month though. :S

The Bird Mania 3D trailer is also on the eShop if you search... oddly enough I'm slightly interested, since it's only $2 and looks like a bit of a fun twist on the autorunner genre (or perhaps a bit of SHMUP escape sequence.) Hopefully NintendoLife will give a rundown of how long it'll last.

Where is Picross e. I want Picross e. Picross e Picross e Picross e
Yes. Yes. Yes yes yes. My only solace is in the fact that it was announced for EU release, but sadly that doesn't always mean anything for NA.

If you take away the games you don't want, it won't magically make games you do want appear.
While I agree with your general point, I don't think that's entirely true in NOA's case, since they seem hell-bent on only releasing one game per system per week... if that.

Well presumably if they could no longer make Wii/DSiWare games they'd move onto eShop games.
Of course though, that doesn't mean they would be any better.
