Four new applications surface for the 3DS eShop service.
The Nintendo 3DS eShop is gearing up to throw four unique titles our way over the next few months.
First up in November is Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! - an art-based exploration game that lets you create creatures and bring them to life. Freakyforms will sell for $6.99 USD, and is due out on November 10 in Europe and November in North America. This appears to be the game known as Pictures Lives, which was at E3 2011 and is already out in Japan.
Next is Pushmo, known as Pullbox, in PAL regions. With a mix of puzzle and platforming elements, you must solve over 250 3D mazes by pushing and pulling boxes to climb up and reach the goal. It also contains a level editor allowing you to share your own puzzles. This will launch in December, with no price set yet.
Third, Swapnote answers the prayers of many 3DS owners by allowing messaging between friends over both StreetPass and SpotPass. The app, called Nintendo Letter Box in PAL regions, will allow handwritten messages in 3D, as well as picture and video attachments. This will also launch in December as a free app.
Finally, Dillon's Rolling Western is a kind of 3D tower defense game, featuring an armadillo character in the old west defending his town by rolling over enemies. This game is slated for a Q1 release in the new year.
Stay tuned as we bring you more details on these titles as they emerge.
