Sega Game Gear classic Sonic Blast will be available to download this Thursday from the 3DS eShop, Nintendo has announced.

The 2D platformer originally launched in 1996. It's yours this week for Ł4.50 (€5).

Side-scrolling slash-'em-up Samurai Sword Destiny is also on the way. It's a colourful combo-charged romp set against an arty monochrome background. Fancy a slice? It costs Ł5.40 (€6).

And finally, new DSiWare game Art of Ink. It's a nutty-looking tattooing simulator that has you training to be a stellar skin artist. It costs Ł7.20/€8, or 800 DSi Points.
