3DS eShop games of the week: Super Pokemon Rumble, Aero Porter and more

Plus New Style Boutque and Denpa Men demos

You can download Aero Porter - the second of three Guild01 games that are coming to the UK - through the 3DS eShop this week. It will be joined by Super Pokemon Rumble, DSi game DotMan and New Style Boutique and The Denpa Men demos.

After Nintendo released Suda51's Liberation Maiden through the 3DS eShop, Aero Porter (3DS: Level 5, £4.49) becomes the second game from Japan's Guild01 compilation to come to Nintendo's digital store.

From developer Yoot Saito, creator of Seaman and Odama, Aero Porter is an airport simulation and puzzle game that will have you sorting luggage, expanding your airport's operations and avoiding security mishaps. As your airport grows, you'll have to load more planes with more luggage while dealing with special requests and suspicious packages.

You can even exchange aircraft with your friends via StreetPass as you put your airport on the map and help it grow from a few sleepy regional terminals to a bustling international hub.

Super Pokemon Rumble (3DS: Nintendo, £39.99) was released for 3DS last year and has now arrived in the 3DS eShop. In this game, you battle against waves of wind-up Toy Pokemon but these fights are very different to what you'd expect from a main Pokemon adventure as you press buttons to bash your opponents rather than using strategic moves in turn-based battles. There are over 600 Toy Pokemon to collect and you can battle with a friend in co-op mode. Read our Super Pokemon Rumble review to see if you should download this game.

DotMan (3DS or DSi: Agetec, £1.79 or 200 Points) is a racing game in which you have to collect all the coins on each stage as you drive as fast as you can. That makes it sounds like a budget Mario Kart 7 but in DotMan, you have to avoid police rather than red shells as it will be game over if you get caught by the cops three times. Items will help you dodge them and you can perform last minute lane changes and U-turns.

The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave demo (3DS: Genius Sonority, free) has been out for a while in America but you'll be able to download the demo this week so you can try it out before the dungeon RPG is released in the UK. The Denpa Men are mysterious creatures that float around radio waves in your daily environment. You have to catch them to form a party before taking them on a variety of adventures in a bid to save your loved one from the King of Evil.

New Style Boutique demo (3DS: Nintendo, free) is a demo version of the Style Boutique sequel that's out now in the UK. As in the original, you play as a shop assistant, giving advice to customers and putting together a look for them. The idea is to work your way up until you eventually own your own boutique.

That's all for this week. Are you going to download any of these games?

    i'll give the denpa men demo a try

    The digital downloads of boxed retail games are still far too high; you can get Pokemon Rumble online for half of that price!

  3. deKay Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 12:20

    Oooh - that Dotman looks like the old Sega game Head-On. Tempted by that!

    Also Aero Porter is a no-brainer. Denpa Men demo too - great week on the eShop!

    Is the New Style Boutique demo the same as the one up two weeks ago?

  4. imbusydoctorwho Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 13:00

    Is it a new Style Boutique demo,or is it the same one,that was release a couple of weeks ago?

    Nintendo charging Ł39.99 for a year old game you can get for over half price online,and around town,seriously Nintendo needs to sort out their pricing of retail games on the E-shop. I'm dreading to see how much Nintendo are going to charge for Wii U games the E-shop.

    The e-shop pricing for retail games is as ridiculous as ever but its like that for all consoles which I don't understand because they're cutting the middle man and packaging costs. Does anyone know when the last installment of NSMB2 DLC will be available, cause I finally beat the target in Nerve-Wrack Pack and I fancy some more before playing NSMBU on Friday.

    I really want to play Super Pokemon Rumble and would rather download it, but for that price I think I'll leave it. Nintendo need to sort out their prices, charging Ł39.99 seems a bit much.

    I'm sure when Nintendo realise that hardly anyone is dishing out Ł40 for a game on the eshop they will drop the price. FULL GAME DOWNLOAD BOYCOTT!

  8. vix_chan Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 15:50

    Oh yay, about time the Denpa Men demo has made it here.
    I would guess that the full game will be a week after the demo release.

    Aero Porter is also looking great, a good week on Eshop. :D

  9. ledreppe Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 16:22

    Nah, pass for this week.

    Won't work. Nintendo have to price their games at RRP since, if they were to be under then retailers will accuse them of trying to undercut and will stop carrying Nintendo products

  11. deKay Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 17:50

    Nintendo don't have an RRP.

  12. Donkey Kong Jr. Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 19:18

    that price is a joke.

  13. goldtanooki Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 20:09

    All very good, but does anybody know when spirit hunters is out and how much it will cost?

  14. fisher2007 Monday 26th Nov 2012 at 21:20

    i'll give the denpa men demo a try

  15. deKay Tuesday 27th Nov 2012 at 09:40

    It was out last week. I think it's pretty good.

    It's stupid to say the least Ł40 for Pokemon Rumble?? I got this a week or so after it was released and then the price suddenly dropped by Ł10 ...just under a week later???
    :roll:

    Downloadable retail games are only appealing if they are cheaper than retail versions!! but i prefer retail, since there is buy back value!
    :wink:

    ...and on another note, DLC is just a pure rip off...it's like here's the full game but we are going to take out this, and this, and this, and then call the Downloadable Content! ...when in fact your paying to unlock a part of the game, it amazes me how stupid people really are!!
    :shock:

    Just looked on the eshop now, thanks :)

    €44.99 for Super Pokémon Rumble? Haha, good one. I can buy it for over €15 less with its full packaging and the ability to play it on multiple 3DS consoles elsewhere. Why would I ever purchase it on the eShop?
