This week’s 3DS eShop offering is an interesting mix of action, platforming and ‘inking’. Sonic Blast gives you the opportunity to relive a classic Game Gear title on the 3DS while Art of Ink is the kind of experience that seems a perfect fit for the handheld’s hardware. Meanwhile, Samurai Sword Destiny offers stylish side-scrolling fun for the more action-orientated members of the family.
Here’s this week’s eShop Update in full:

Samurai Sword Destiny – £5.40 / €6.00
- You control a deadly female samurai, Akane, with a single goal in mind: to find and bring her missing elder brother home. On Akane’s quest, she will encounter deadly ambushes, invade enemy castle rooftops, and square off against seemingly indomitable opponents. With the help of dozens of upgrades available to enhance her fighting abilities, Akane just might have a fighting chance against the forces that stand in her path!
Sonic Blast – £4.50 / €5.00
- Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna and their world blast off in this fully rendered Game Gear classic. The evil genius Robotnik has stolen the Chaos Emeralds and it’s up to Sonic and Knuckles to stop him. Luckily, Sonic has new moves and other special power-ups to defeat the evil genius. Travel with Sonic and Knuckles through a maze of traps, evil robots and fearsome scenery to prove to Dr. Robotnik that there’s no trap made that a determined Hedgehog or Echidna can’t overcome.
Art of Ink – £7.20 / €8.00
- Submerge yourself in the colourful world of tattoo art! Working in one of the most prestigious studios in town, you can turn your stylus into a tattoo machine and work with precision on your clients’ skins to give them a piece of your art. But be careful: it’s not just the art you have to deal with, since satisfying your customer takes more than just skill with your inks. You must get to know the crazy cast of characters that come to your shop so you can give each of your clients the perfect design. Keep your clients happy and make a name for yourself to eventually open your own shop and customise it to your liking. Other tattoo artists will take note of your success and will challenge you to prove your skills. Defeating them will give you an insight into their techniques and maybe, just maybe, help you become the next tattoo master. Get ready to celebrate tattoo culture with Art of Ink!
