So, Mario’s Picross has been discounted to $2.99 today. Yep. We went from Mighty Switch Force!, a game that every 3DS owner needs to have, being discounted to $3 to…Mario’s Picross. I mean, it isn’t bad per se. There’s just not a whole lot to say about it. There are certainly worse things on the eShop to spend your money on.

In other news, Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters was also released on the eShop this week for $3.99. This is the only Kid Icarus game I haven’t played so far. Considering that I didn’t like Kid Icarus on the NES at all, I’m hoping this one is at least slightly better.

  • Yep. This is one sale I’m definitely skipping.

  • SecretX

    is kid icarus any good i’m thinking of getting it but then i saw the 3d one so which one is better?

    • Kid Icarus: Uprising could very easily be the next big international competitive video game. They were aiming high when they created “Light vs Dark” and it looks like they landed not to far off when they called it “The Sport of the gods”. I recommend you pick it up and take a day to get through the story, pick a couple of weapon types that work well for you, and start battling online.

    • Uprising is probably the best game in the Kid Icarus franchise. If you’re going to play any of the Kid Icarus games, your best bet is to play that one.

  • Wasn’t there a 3D picross game of sorts on the eShop (goes to look it up). In any case, it’s another good week to be a 3DS keeper.
