Creature creation oddity Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! headlines this week's Nintendo eShop update.

Freakyforms allows players to design their own Spore-like critter and unleash them on a platforming world of your own design. Gamers can also swap monsters via StreetPass and share them online via QR code.

It's an original Nintendo-created downloadable game for the 3DS - sadly still a rare occurrence for the handheld, but one which Nintendo is working to improve.

Freakyforms is the beginning of the company's push to improve original content available on the device, with the already-revealed Nimble Sakura Warrior and cowboy armadillo game Dillon's Rolling Western also on the way.

Also this week: ancient Game Boy pool simulator Side Pocket turns up on Virtual Console while virtual fish tank The Aquarium of Luck arrives for DSiWare.

Nintendo eShop update - 10/11/11

  • Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! (3DS) - £5.50, €6
  • Side Pocket (3DS Virtual Console) - £2.50, €3
  • The Aquarium of Luck (DSiWare) - £4.50 or 500 DSi Points
