I'm didn't know harmoknight was a download game. Now I'm a lot more excited for it! I'm also quite looking forward to Ikachan.

And "potentially" an official announcement for GBA games for 3DS, and some more game boy colour games (Super Mario Bros Duluxe and the original Shantae game) That would be nice for 2013 too.
Something's coming up the plumbing, poor Luigi's in a bind. Giant turtles are out to get him, Creepy Crabs are right behind. Spiders, flies. Jeepers! Yikes!, They're coming out the pipes. "MARIO! WHERE ARE YOU!!!"

Is Harmonight like, say, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy or Rhythm Thief, cause those are 2 rhythm games I'm quite good at. That's about it for what I want from this list, NightSky looks like it could get fiendishly difficult towards the end.

Eh... I'm not really looking forward to Harmoknight. I am looking forward to Mutant Mudds 2, NightSky and, even though it's not on the list, Denpa Men 2. That game was awesome! :D
Oh, and Ikachan too, that looks great!
Woo hoo!

What about Cave story+ and Denpa Men 2. I'm really looking forward to them myself as well as Nightsky, 1001spikes and Mutant Mudds2. Ikachan is alright too. It's gunna be another great year for the eshop.

Harmoknight does look interesting, and if they release a demo then I'll definitely try it.

I did not think cave story + was coming to Europe. It's been on USA dsi for a while but I heard it got removed to make way for the plus version. I got cave story 3d a while back I'm hoping the plus version is the same so I wont have to get it again.

Hey ONM, is there any way you could add a schedule on the front page for upcoming Wii U/3DS UK release dates? I can only ever find US release dates on other sites which aren't the same. It would make a great addition to the site (unless you've already done it and i just can't see it!!).

They all look rather decent. Now though, I'm wondering which system I should get 1,001 Spikes for. Considering it was originally designed for home consoles, I might have to go for the Wii U version... when I get one.
Certainly, Harmonknight is also my most anticipated 3DS eShop game.

I actually was about to ask for this, as it would be very useful to see.

I saw the screenshots and saw Shantea... looking good, and Risky's Revenge is on the watch list (I can only find the original for a wallet-busting £100! I thought £10 was a lot better hehe,) ,and I was SO excited when Harmoknight was released, to find it was pushed back was devastating, but now we have a release date to juggle with, it's sounding good!

the trailer for 1001 spikes... SO GENERIC. Put me off, not only that, it looks really similar to other games all ready available... Maybe Nicalis will release some better games later down the line, still Harmoknight and Shantae for me

I have said before that I haven't seen anything on the 3ds eshop in a while that has caught my eye, but some of these games might just change that. I'm particularly interested by nightsky and harmoknight. :D

I need something interesting to write here.
