Jimmy And Billy Lee Kick 3DS Ass As Double Dragon Attacks Ninty eShop
Last week we had the very pleasant Donkey Kong Game Boy jaunt, this week prepare to be transported back to 1990 as Arc System works unleash a conversion of Technos Game Boy version of classic scrolling fighter Double Dragon. Evoking memories of this correspondents local Chinese takeaway which housed a Double Dragon cab when he was a kid, this looks like a quality diversion and is only a couple of quid.
Also on eShop this week is excellent Game Boy title Radar Mission, which brings Battleships-esque fun to the palm of your hand, which should appeal to fans of the recent Steel Diver.
Meanwhile, DSiWare fans will be able to get their hands on puzzle shooter Delbo, and Just Sing! 80s Collection, and Wii owners can grab a free demo of clunkily named Nyxquest: Kindred Spirits, which sounds a bit like a Kid Icarus knockoff for our liking.
Anyway, official blurb from Nintendo is below, enjoy this weeks offerings!
