Is it me, or is the Nintendo Download shrinking? This week we've got a beloved classic and the demo of an upcoming puzzle platformer for the 3DS, a spot the difference game for DSiWare, and that's pretty much it. I might cradle my Wii and cry.
Crush 3D is a game that makes full use of the 3DS's three-dimensional capabilities by producing platforming puzzles difficult enough to challenge the most die-hard of platformer fans.
Seeing as how the original version of Crush on the PlayStation Portable was all about shifting perspective from 2D to 3D and back, it's fitting that Sega's liked-but-ignored platformer gets a second chance at life on the 3DS.
So, you've held on, 3DS owner. You've maintained ownership Nintendo's stereoscopic handheld despite a software portfolio that's been rough going. When will you be able to play a classic arcade ninja or a beloved, speedy hedgehog, you've cried?! One Japanese publisher has heard you and their answer is soon.
