We've had some pretty rough weeks on the Nintendo 3DS eShop recently. But that just makes this week all the more special.

I say special, because this week's eShop offering is by far the worst I have seen in the Nintendo 3DS' life. Yes, it really is that bad.

Europe gets a Virtual Console game, a movie-game tie-in, and a game about horses. America gets even less than that.

This'll be over soon. I hope.

European eShop releases

Disney Planes costs £24.99, and is a tie-in with the movie of the same name. It's no doubt aimed at kids, and no doubt pretty average.

My Western Horse 3D costs a whopping £34.99, and is a game about owning a ranch and raising horses. Hooray.

The Virtual Console has NES hit Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos for £4.49, which is a nippy game about using Ninjutsu to fight crime... but again, probably not something to shout about.

And that's your lot! Maybe the American store will be better.

US eShop releases

Ah. Well... no actually, it's not looking a whole lot better at all.

The American store has a single new game this week, and it's not even new - it's Game Boy Color game Wario Land 3 for the Virtual Console, with a $4.99 price tag.

There's BIT.TRIP SAGA on sale too for a pretty incredible $4.99. That rather low price almost makes up for the shoddy week. Almost.

Back again next week!
