There’s also the great-looking, “non-stop” action game Samurai G to check out, along with yet another shooter Come On! Dragons – this time featuring tower defence elements.

Here’s this week’s eShop line-up in full:

  • Samurai G – £1.79 / €1.99

    • Become the Shining Samurai of legend! Samurai G is a non-stop action game that will challenge players of all abilities! As Tetsuo, you must collect as much of Tengu’s Gold as possible before the evil warlord Fuma’s assassins grab it. Why? Because Tengu’s Gold is rumoured to possess the power of Tengu, the harbinger of war! Activate Golden Mode to harness the power of Tengu’s Gold and see why this power must not fall to the wrong hands! Defeat Fuma’s assassins and avoid deadly traps on your quest to become the Shining Samurai!

Virtual Console

  • Gradius – £4.49 / €4.99

    • The planet Gradius is doomed. Only you – at the helm of the prototype Vic Viper fighter – can first save Gradius and then the galaxy from the evil Bacterions. The first in the classic series, Gradius introduced the now familiar system of collecting capsules to boost your ship’s abilities; missiles, increased speed, laser beam, force field and more. You must use your skills as a pilot and choose your weapons wisely as you face off against waves of enemies and enormous bosses. And never forget: shoot the core!

  • Come On! Dragons – £1.79 / €1.99

    • The kingdom is under attack by the dragon army! As the most skilled protector of the kingdom, you must strike back against the invaders with your expert archery. But with enemies appearing everywhere, is it possible to defeat them with a single bow? Don’t worry! The engineers have invented various types of traps too. Use them wisely to mount defensive lines and defeat the evil dragons!
