3D Classics Kid Icarus soars onto the 3DS eShop this week.

Nintendo has been giving the game away free since the start of January to anyone who recently registered two Nintendo-published games.

But from this Thursday's update Kid Icarus is available to all, albeit at the cost of £5.40/€6.

Like all 3D Classics launches, Kid Icarus is a smartened up version of the original, which launched on the NES in 1986.

DSiWare game Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon also arrives on the eShop for £4.50/€5. It's developed by Fuse Games, makers of the DS Metroid Prime Pinball spin-off.

Also on DSiWare, Castle Conqueror: Against (£1.80/€2), while TNT Racers launches on WiiWare for 1000 Points (about £7).

Eurogamer's Kristan Reed scored TNT Racers, available on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, a decent 7/10. "As a homage to past glories, Keen Games has done an admirable job. All you need is a Friday night, some old friends, gallons of beer and a gigantic pizza and the past is yours", he wrote.
