There's a marvellous array of new games this week on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

These range from genuine classics and snazzy remakes to gorgeous-looking sequels.

There's even a bit of Mario and Sonic tag team action, too, if that sort of thing tickles your fancy.

Ahem.

Without further ado, then, let's get it on...

European eShop releases

The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves is the follow-up to Genius Sonority's quirky RPG The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave. If this sequel is anything like the original, you're going to love it.

It's on sale for £8.99. We'll have a review of it up on the site soon. (Don't forget that the original is still on sale for £5.69, so you might want to grab that in the meantime.)

With SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition, Gamelion takes the original Bronze Award-winning SpeedX 3D from last year and throws a new coat of paint over it. Oh, and chucks in some new music, improved controls, and faster gameplay.

That will cost you just $1.79 if you're interested. And you probably should be.

This next one may be a little, err, late, but it's great fun. Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is now available in download form for £24.99.

There are a couple of stonkers in the Virtual Console section this week, too. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages are their names. They are £4.49 apiece.

US eShop releases

The new releases in the American eShop are nearly identical to the ones in the European store this week.

So, yep, you guys can grab The Denpa Men 2 for $11.99, and nab Oracle of Seasons and Ages for $4.99 each.

Gummy Bears Mini Golf appears to be a sequel to the DS game of the (almost) same name.

I once called out the DS original for having one of the worst handheld game box art ever. The latest instalment in this series costs $5.99.

And there's a new demo for Project X Zone, entitled the Imperial Demo. Just in case you wanna check this crossover game out.

See you next week!
