An amazing collection of 30 retro games including a cute penguin match puzzle game, a neat super spint type f1 game. Some really amazing games on here - most are locked from the start and unlocked by spending points earned by meeting in game goals.

The goals are listed in Japanese but I'm almost positive an English translation is online :)

An absolute must for any retro gamer...

I got mine here:

https://solarisjapan.com/products/gg-series-collection

But its available on amazon for a similar price

Couple of PS2 titles - Lumines Plus and Mouse Trophy (which looks like the most gloriously awful game ever to exist).

Shantae, happy to double dip if a physical EU version comes along. Good fun so far, nice soundtrack.

When you say an English translation is available online... how would one patch an official release on a non modded 3DS XL?

Not a patch just a translation of the goals in text format - just print them off.

aeternoblade for 3ds download, on eshop for £2.70 down from £13.50. kind of golden axe-ish with a bit of a rpg element to it. there were a few bugs which have been apparently sorted, most have reviewed it as a £13/$15 game

Picked up Dragon Age Inquisition Deluxe Edition (PS4) from the PSN store January sale. Reduced from £64.99 to £5.49. Can't grumble at that, tbh. :D

Received Paper Mario Colour Splash on the Wii-U for Christmas so I'm looking forward to getting that on. I#ve found even the "weak" Paper Mario games to be highly charming so I have decent hopes for this one as well.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
