EU Nintendo downloads: Game Gear arrives

UK store gets classics from Sega's old Game Boy rival

20 years ago, Nintendo and Sega kids punched each other in the face for liking rival consoles. Now you can download Game Gear games on Nintendo's handheld.


The first Game Gear games hit the 3DS eShop this week in Europe, with Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble (£4.50) and Shinobi (£3.60) kicking things off to a good start. Those are joined by Dragon Crystal (£2.70).

Elsewhere, Hints Hunter (£1.80, 200 DSi Points) has arrived for DSiWare (and 3DS eShop), while the Wii Virtual Console gets the awesome Mega Man 5 for 500 Wii Points.

Game Gear emulation arrived on the US 3DS eShop earlier this month.
