Nintendo eShop update - 18/08/11

3D Classics Urban Champion!

A new version of NES classic 3D Urban Champion headlines this week's Nintendo eShop update.

It's the third tarted-up 3D Classics release, following Excitebike and Xevious.

Never heard of Urban Champion? It's a fighting game where players must knock each other into a sewer manhole.

It's already on the Wii's Virtual Console and was a micro-game in Wario Ware Inc., although this version adds eye-dazzling 3D visuals.

Addictive air traffic sim Flight Control lands on WiiWare. It's a high-pressure puzzler where you try to not crash planes.

Including airport tax and baggage handling, it comes to 500 Wii Points (3.50). A DSiWare version is already available.

Also out this week? DSiWare bike racing in Moto eXtreme and a game named My Asian Farm. What do they grow there? Chickens, monkeys, elephants and tigers apparently.
