Burger Time World Tour is coming soon to the Wii, but arrives first on Xbox LIVE Arcade next week. Not to be outdone, Nintendo has apparently opted to beat Microsoft to the punch– in some fashion, at least– by releasing Burger Time Deluxe for the Game Boy Virtual Console on the Nintendo 3DS eShop this week.
Just don’t get the idea that the two are one in the same; as we’ve said before, what Monkey Paw has done with the franchise is remarkable. Deluxe is but a mere appetizer to whet your palate before the main course; a slider before a steakhouse third-pounder.
The portable adaptation of the classic arcade game is joined on the eShop by the game Pyramids, a puzzle-platform game about escaping the pharaoh’s tomb with his loot, as well as Halloween: Trick or Treat and Academy: Checkers, which are both on the eShop and Nintendo DSiWare.
Nintendo Video also has a special rendition of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, as performed in 3D by the cast of the Shrek movies.
And finally, WiiWare gets its due with ANIMA Ark of Sinners, a Teen-rated action-adventure title which takes place in the world of the role playing game ANIMA Beyond Fantasy.
