NES Metroid on Nintendo 3DS eShop this week

Prime entertainment.

Nintendo will re-release the original Metroid game on the 3DS eShop this week.

Originally for the NES, the classic space-faring adventure will be available to download this Thursday for 4.50/€5. 3DS Ambassadors got the game for free last year.

Mega Drive platformer Strider will be re-released on the Wii's Virtual Console, meanwhile, for 800 Points (5.60).

Then there's 1st Class Poker & BlackJack, a casino title for DSiWare. Is it worth a gamble for 4.50/€5?

Battle of the Elements arrives too, also for DSiWare. It's an animal-based puzzle game featuring racial stereotypes as characters. Make friends with a Communist panda, a turban-wearing Indian elephant or a Japanese fish wearing a hairband. It's also 4.50/€5.
