Nintendo eShop update - 04/08/11

Classic Pac-Man to wakka on your 3DS.

Classic Pac-Man headlines this Thursday's set of fresh eShop offerings.

The version on offer, released under the system's Virtual Console banner, is the monochrome Game Boy edition, originally launched in Europe in 1991.

Do you really need Pac-Man on your 3DS? This week? If so, the €4 (about £3.70) asking price might tempt you to take a nibble.

Wait a few more weeks though and you can get meaty full release Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions. It's coming as a retail release for 3DS at the end of the month and features spruced-up versions of Pac-Man and Pac-Man Championship Edition (the DX version of which scored a rare 10/10 last year).

Also this week - arcade action in feline puzzler Go! Go! Kokopolo and dark survival fighting in The Lost Town: The Dust.

And finally, the Wii gets a look in with budget Nordcurrent racer Monochrome Racing.

  • Pac-Man (GB Virtual Console) - €4
  • Go! Go! Kokopolo (DSiWare) - €8, 800 Points
  • The Lost Town: The Dust (DSiWare) - €5, 500 DSi Points
  • My Australian Farm (DSiWare) - €2, 200 DSi Points
  • Monochrome Racing (WiiWare) - 500 Wii Points
