GamingUnion: "For those who aren't already aware, Nintendo's eShop service on the Nintendo 3DS has had a surprisingly prolific series of high-quality releases so far, including Pushmo and VVVVVV, just to name a few. Pushmo gave us a 3D take on the classic puzzle genre while VVVVVV was an excellent port of the PC original with a few extra touches. Nintendo's latest entry in their own releases for the 3DSWare service is a title with an eastern flair --- Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword, which has a hint of Punch-Out!! mixed with an art style reminiscent of Capcom's Okami. And surprisingly enough, this unique mix actually works out quite well in the end."
