Shakedown: Hawaii is getting a Nintendo 3DS physical release on Monday, November 6th!

It's priced at $29.99 USD for the Standard Edition and $49.99 USD for the Collector's Edition (plus shipping).

Both editions include the game on cartridge and a manual. The Collector's Edition also includes a Shakedown: Hawaii CEO action figure (with accessory!), and a soundtrack CD.

The total print run is 6,000 copies -- 3,000 Standard Edition and 3,000 Collector's Edition.


I feel like I say this every time, but it was another absolute labor of love putting this physical release together. Although it took much longer to assemble than any previous one (as you can see!), what it includes makes me smile from ear to ear.

Supporting legacy consoles is a huge priority. With the closure of the eShop, I'm excited to see all the new players enjoy Shakedown: Hawaii as a Nintendo 3DS experience... on cartridge no less!

It also goes without saying that adding a second action figure in the Vblank collection is another dream come true, and to me, is one of the coolest things that could be included in a collector's edition.

There are a few important things to note:

  • The cartridge is region-locked and plays only on North American Nintendo 3DS/2DS systems.

  • It was no longer possible to package these games with the preferred "Y-Fold Seal", so they have been shrinkwrapped instead.

    Shrinkwrapping produces artifacts that may be undesirable to some collectors. Examples include a wavy-effect to the front/back cover, prominent seams along the top, bottom and side of the shrinkwrap, small holes in the shrinkwrap, and air pockets that make colors in some spots appear different. Head over to the Photo Gallery Page for examples of what to expect.

    Please look at the photos carefully prior to purchasing.


The cartridge contains the latest version of Shakedown: Hawaii available on the Nintendo 3DS, which includes the "Mogul Update", the "Full Tank Update" and "Shake-Up! Update".
