Kirby Dream Land 2 is a classic returning on the Nintendo 3DS as a Virtual Console game costing £3.60
Rainbow bridges have gone missing linking the islands of Dream Land, and the loveable Kirby must travel through all seven isles whilst battling foes.
You will also get a chance to join up with Kirby’s friends, each with their own unique abilities.

Bird Mania 3D will be a new game download by developers Teyon and will cost £1.80
Join Mojo as he follows his bird pals as they holiday in the exotic climes of Africa. Fly faster and faster, dash, soar, glide, and collect all bonuses. How far can you get in pursuit of a delightful vacation?

The Rayman Origins demo will be free, and will allow you to test out the waters of the 3D release of this game.
When the Glade of Dreams is overrun by Darktoons, it is up to Rayman and his buddies Globox and the Teensies to save the day. Their challenge, restore peace to the Glade or witness their beloved home vanish like a bad dream…


The 2 Fast 4 Gnomz Demo made by Qubic Games is a Wiiware demo, available on the Wii, and will also be free.
Four brave gnomes venture on a journey so epic, they don’t even know where they’re going. Join Bumb, Berzerk, Speedster and Uncle Time as they run, fly, bounce, glide and break their way through the magical lands of Gnomia to reach their mysterious destiny.


Other Nintendo UK Download highlights include, an exclusive to 3DS owners. The final instalment of the animated film, Big Buck Bunny, made by the Blender Foundation, in 3D will be released.
Made entirely in Blender, a Free and Open Source 3D modeler/shader/animator/renderer. It is a very powerful piece of software in the right hands.
The short film follows a rabbit as he seeks revenge on a trio of mischievous woodland creatures who have disrupted his peaceful daily routine.


Another is a Shaun the Sheep clip which will also be offered as a download in the eleventh of the series, made exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS and in 3D by Aardman Animations.

The clip is titled Shaun Goes Old School, and sees Shaun becoming a character in his own game.

As well as writing/proof reading for the site, I dabble in 3D modeling and music making.
