Go for it :smile:

I bought it physically quite recently and while some of the games are better than others, it's well worth it at that price :hehe:

Picked up Fairune Collection the last week. Managed to get through the first game without too much trouble (although I did have to check up on a couple of bits that were super obscure :blush:) but Fairune 2 is proving to be quite tricky in comparison. I'm currently about an hour and a half in, but now completely and utterly stumped as to where to go/what to do! :confused: These games are definitely a blast from the past in their design, it's just a shame that I've clearly lost my ability to solve these types of cryptic puzzles. :D

Hopefully I managed to progress again soon. Really want to unlock the shmup game that's included in the collection, but you need to complete the first 3 games to unlock it.

*EDIT*
Whoops! This was obviously supposed to go in the Switch eShop thread. No wonder I'm stuck on Fairune, can't even figure out the forum. :laughing:

I played them both on the 3DS and thought they were great. I enjoyed the first game more than the second. The second was a little bit too big for what the game is trying to do.

Yeah, it's definitely pretty clear already that the second title is quite a bit bigger than the first one. Apparently Fairune Origin is tiny though (way shorter than even the first game) according to reviews and the best times on the in-game leaderboard.

I fired up the 3DS eShop to have a quick browse and the menu music is amazingly catchy. Anyone know if it's off a certain game?

Nintendo are taking away the ability to add funds directly via credit/debit cards on both Wii U and 3DS from September onwards!? (You'll have to do it from the website form now on)

WHAT THE FUCK!? NOT COOL NINTENDO!!!!! :mad: 3DS is still being sold in stores!!! Hell, the last 3DS game only just got released about 3 months ago!!!!

Wow, so Nintendo are actually digitally cutting off the Wii U and the 3DS just like that.

At least you can still add funds from the website but if and when they pull that... it will be just whatever credit is left on pre-purchased cards... until those are stopped as well.

Maybe this means that Nintendo are going to be porting everything worthwhile which is digital from the 3DS and Wii U to the Switch? Though I wouldn't count on it.

Ahh... It might actually be due to the new EU PSD2 online transaction regulations that are due to come into effect in September 2019...

So hopefully it means that they're not planning on killing off the older eShops just yet after all...

Plus if your 3DS shares the same NNID as your Switch you can add funds to the latter, and it should also be available on your 3DS.

Well, that would make sense, though I'm still not pleased about it and I can still see them slowly cutting off both consoles later on down the line.

They would be foolish to do so now though as people are still buying stuff on the 3DS eShop and even the Wii U eShop to a lesser degree.

I don't think I'll be scrambling for points when the time comes to shut off the Wii U eShop though, not in the same way as when the Wii Shop Channel was killed off.

But as Dennis says, if your NNID is linked between all consoles then I guess it isn't that much of a big deal... yet.

It has reminded me that I do have some digital codes to redeem on the 3DS eShop though, if they haven't expired. (the ones for Pokémon Gold & Silver)

I used my Japanese 3DS to add funds to my Japanese NNID, hopefully the site doesn't block cards not registered in Japan...

 

Edit: Oh, it only affect Europe. Phew.
