Treasure's arresting third-person shooter, released in 2009, was a long-awaited successor to the cult N64 original. Upon release it impressed critics, with GameSpot's Sin and Punishment review praising its "gratifying action and wealth of ideas."
The game's re-release was announced on Wednesday during the Nintendo Direct broadcast for Europe. These video feeds tend to be slightly altered between US and European regions, and in this case Sin and Punishment was not mentioned in the North American video.
For Europe, the line-up is slightly amended, with Donkey Kong Country Returns replacing Punch-Out. These games will normally cost $20 (£18), but will be available at half price on the week of their release.
During the European Nintendo Direct specifically, Iwata listed four additional games that will be arriving later on eShop:
It is likely, though not yet confirmed, that these games have been earmarked for US release too (Punch-Out, as mentioned above, already has a US release date).
Meanwhile, the eShop listing of Super Mario Galaxy 2 shows that a Wii remote is still required to play the game, while off-screen play now also supported. Meanwhile, the visuals have been up-scaled to support 1080p display.
