There were some great games released through the 3DS eShop last year. From Fallblox to Hydroventure: Spin Cycle and Crimson Shroud, some of the best 3DS eShop games came out in 2012. 2013 has a lot to live up to but there are already some games that you should be really excited about.
We looked at the best Wii U eShop games for 2013 yesterday and now it's time to turn our attention to the 3DS digital store. Here are the top 5 best 3DS games to look forward to in 2013.
5. Mutant Mudds 2
Release date: TBCLike your platformers to test you with Mega Man 2 levels of toughness? Mutant Mudds 2 could be for you. Many 3DS owners loved retro-style platformer Mutant Mudds and will welcome the return of Max in the sequel which is set for release through the 3DS eShop.
The original looked like a platformer from the SNES era, but Max's ability to leap between the background and foreground of a level gave it a fresh twist as he attempted to collect all the water sprites and take out the invading muddy mutants with his water blaster. With G-Land and V-Land secret levels designed to look like Game Boy and Virtual Boy games, there was a lot to like for Nintendo fans.
And if you managed to complete the game - by finishing every regular level, all 20 hidden levels, and collecting all 2000 Golden Diamonds - there was Mutant Mudds DLC waiting for you in which you could play as Grannie.
Those who completed the DLC guessed that a sequel would be on the way thanks to the message at the end (pictured above) in which Max praised Grannie for her skills before saying that he'd received some special intel on something new brewing and was off to check it out. Some have suggested that the background is a new level but Max said that he is going somewhere to check out the new intel
Still, as we have no fresh information about the sequel, you can forgive people for staring at this message looking for clues. So you've got Max who is still clutching his water blaster... and that's all we know!
