Some great stuff is available today for 3DS and Wii owners. The Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D demo hits the eShop plus all 3DS owners now have a chance to pick up Super Mario Bros. for Virtual Console. Wii owners can watch their favorite films and shows with Hulu Plus (a 3DS version is releasing later this year) and have a go with Strider.
Strider stars the titular ninja on a mission to assassinate the mysterious dictator known as Grandmaster. Strider hacks away at enemies using quick slashes with his sword and can make his way through stages by climbing walls or hanging on to hooks. Keep an eye out for power-ups that can recover your health, boost attack range, or summon various robot helpers. Try out this classic Sega Genesis game for 800 Wii Points.
Similar to Netflix, Hulu Plus is a streaming content service that lets you watch a selection of current-season TV shows and movies. Hulu Plus requires a $7.99 monthly subscription to access content though new users can sign up for a two week trial. The Hulu Plus Channel itself is free to download and only available to U.S. residents.
