NintendoWare Weekly: Kid Icarus Of Myths and Monsters, Petit Computer


The 3DS eShop is once again loaded with content, thanks in part to the 8-Bit Summer promotion, which brings Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters and Tumble Pop today. Other content of note includes Petit Computer, a tool to create BASIC games and other programs right on the DS, and share them via QR codes.

This week's eShop sale – yes, that's still going on! – is on the Game Boy release of Mario's Picross. Through the weekend, you can pick that up for $3.
