European 3DS eShop to Feature Virtual Console Game Gear Games

The eShop has been booming for well over 10 months now, but it hasn’t seen any third party console software for the virtual console. However, this Thursday the European eShop will get a batch of Game Gear games. Only 3 so far, but at least we know they’re coming. Set to release are; Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble, Shinobi,  and Dragon Crystal in all their glory.

Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble is the sequel to Sonic Chaos. Released in 1994, Sonic and Tails must race across six zones, attempting to beat Knuckles and Nack the Weasle to the Chaos Emeralds. This is at the eShop’s middle price, €5 (£4.50)

In Shinobi you take control of the Red Shinobi, Joe Musashi, who must save his fellow shinobi to rid the world of fear. Released as a side-scrolling action game, it costs €4 or £3.60, depending on your currency of choice.

Dragon Crystal features you running through mazes whilst being chased by an egg, and knuckle sandwiching some monsters. It’s a turn based rouguelike, and it’s a fairly timeless genre. Get it at the lowest price of the three, €3 (£2.75)

Good games, from a great handheld, the game gear. The question is will you be buying anything? If so, which one, if not all! Be sure to comment! Have a great day!
