Nintendo has announced new eShop goodies heading your way soon, starting with Game Boy classic Metroid II: Return of Samus on November 24.

The 2D game finds bounty hunter Samus Aran battling Space Pirates as she seeks to destroy Metroids on SR388, laying the foundation for the follow-up, Super Metroid.

In December, Nintendo will add Pushmo, which has the player pushing, pulling and climbing in order to solve more than 200 3D puzzles. In it, players step into the shoes of Mallo, who is “small in size but has a big heart and big muscles to match.”

Players will use him to move the giant blocks that make up the Pushmo puzzles, and solving the puzzles will free children accidently trapped inside.

It will also include a Pushmo puzzle creator so players can make their own puzzles and share them with friends.

Finally, in January, the download-only title Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword will be heading to 3DS. Already out in Japan, the title takes the player to ancient Japan to guide a young warrior as he battles waves of enemy soldiers to save a princess.

In order to win a battle, the warrior must “identify the enemy’s attack move, dodge it by a hair and counter-attack with his own mystical Sakura Sword to win the battle.”

Last week, Nintendo added the 3D Classics: Kirby’s Adventure, which has been updated for the system, and more Game Boy Classics have been promised for the future.
