US Nintendo downloads: Twinbee

Classic NES shooter goes 3D

This week's US Nintendo downloads list sees the revival of a retro NES shooter, Twinbee, as a 3D Classic.

It's a traditional vertical scrolling shooter with a unique item-collection mechanic that has you shooting bells to juggle them until they're a specific colour before collecting them for a desired power-up. We fell in love with the Twinbee series when the Super Nintendo sequel, Pop 'n Twinbee, arrived but this will do for now.

Here's the full list:

Nintendo eShop

3D Classics: TwinBee - This vertical-scrolling arcade game was originally available only on the Famicom system in Japan. Now, for the first time ever in North America, fans can play this classic shooter with a new 3D look. (For Nintendo 3DS)



Aya and the Cubes of Light - Solve the cubic mazes and rekindle the stars in this exceptional hybrid of puzzle-platform gaming and 3D action. Teleport onto the Cubes to collect the Energy Packs and get the Cube engines working again. (For Wii)
