I'm still enjoying the 3DS this year, but that's thanks to Nintendo publishing some pretty decent games. I wouldn't turn on my 3DS to play an indie - that'll be for the Switch.

Big man must have been gutted to read today's news about Has Been Heroes and Wonderboy being so successful on the Switch eShop. He's properly missed out there. So have a lot of folk, mind you, albeit not as the expense of focusing all their energy on the 3DS. He's made an arse of it.

The 3DS eShop has had some quality stuff in the last couple of years - Pocket Card Jockey, Go Go Kokopolo 3D and the SEGA 3D Classics, for example - but it's heyday was years ago, arguably before even the Wii U came out.

To be fair to the chap, reading his blog, he seems aware that he's, er, made an arse of it. That the audience has moved on.

I guess that with Nintendo trying to position the Switch as the new home console, there might have been some excuse for thinking that some handheld fans would stick with the 3DS for now? But the rest of the gaming world knew that wasn't the case, so... I have some sympathy, but I feel he should have seen it coming.

I guess he may have even thought well the 3DS has a install base of 65m and Switch 5m, even if all 5m people on Switch didn't even turn on their 3DS's their still be 60m people to possibly buy my game.

Only problem as Cappa points out about Wonder Boy, install-bases don't always matter and I do think a lot of the 3DS audience is made up of casuals who'd wouldn't go near the eShop.

I appreciate that I'm about to announce a tiny demo of a PC game that may be unplayable (or may be excellent - don't get me wrong!) but that does look, as the right honourable gentleman would say, baws. I love a good retro-platformer, but... *sucks air through teeth*

Three demos landed on the eShop this week and I've had a bash on them all.

Kirby Battle Royale looks cute enough, as you would expect, but feels like a collection of minigames. As such, I am unlikely to get on it, myself. Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond The Myth had a ton of character creation tools but was too hard when it came down to the gameplay. It's the only one of the three that I've deleted. The New Style Boutique 3 - Styling Star one, however, has captured my heart and I am likely to purchase it in its finely made-up face on release day. Cuter than a Kirby who's swallowed a fluffy unicorn.

I've only just noticed eShop in written wrong in the title.

A Kirby game on a 7 year old system, can only mean one thing.

I played as demo for the first New Style Boutique when I got my first 3DS XL and it was really good, I was hoping Nintendo or whoever could make the same game but with cars.
