  • News Toys vs. Monsters Brings Childhood Battles to 3DS on 18th December

    Our money's on the rubber duck...

    Whether publishing or developing, EnjoyUp Games continues to bring plenty of budget download games — some rather good — to the eShop platforms. The company has now announced a festive release date for its next title on 3DS, Toys vs. Monsters — it'll arrive in North America and Europe on 18th December. This is...

    Review Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darkness

    Little monsters

    It might not be too off kilter to think that, in some alternate universe, things could have shaken out differently in Capcom’s stable and Firebrand the Red Arremer/Gargoyle would have become a bigger star. The company could have been associated more with crimson than true blue, and fans today could be crying out over the absence of...

    Review Talking Phrasebook

    It's translation time

    Call us pessimistic, but we think it's fair to say that travelling abroad can be a pretty stressful experience. Sure, the exotic locales and sunny weather is always worth it in the end, but making the trip often takes no shortage of patience and more than a few embarrassing attempts to drag up half-remembered phrases in the...

  • News Nintendo eShop Maintenance Planned for 1st December

    Get your shopping done

    While perusing the 3DS eShop notifications and wondering why on Earth Tetris is being removed from the store, we saw a far more helpful message outlining that the download platform has a hefty chunk of maintenance on the way. There'll be a little over seven hours of downtime, though maintenance taking down the eShop stores is...

  • News Two Tetris Downloads to be Removed from the 3DS eShop in Europe

    Blocks dropped

    Occasionally we see some enjoyable titles disappear from Nintendo's download stores, often retro titles and likely the result of a licensing issue. We're a little surprised by the latest victims, however, which are set to disappear from the European 3DS eShop after 31st December. Following that date the store will lose the Game Boy...

  • News Let's Summarise the Remaining eShop Deals on Wii U and 3DS

    As Nintendo decided not to share...

    Earlier this week a host of titles went on discount in North America, some of which were outlined in last week's download update without firm prices, and a whole load of others that came as surprises. We held off believing they'd all be covered in today's download update only to be foiled; there are plenty of...

    Persona Q, Thomas Was Alone, Hyrule Warriors DLC, discounts galore and more

    For those of you in the US celebrating it today, here we have the Thanksgiving edition of the Nintendo Download Update, while for everyone else in North America it's simply the 'wow look at all the discounts' edition. Alongside more price reductions than you could shake a...

    Review Chat-A-Lot

    Textual healing or vocal underperformity?

    Want to turn your 3DS into a social device that allows you and your friends to exchange text messages and partake in voice chat while collaborating on doodles? That’s the experience that Chat-A-Lot advertises, and while it delivers in some regards, overall this simple application falls very flat. Part of...

    Review Picross e5

    Another pack of Picross

    While the first few Picross e games mixed things up a little with slightly different modes each time, the previous game in the series — Picross e4 — didn't do anything unique; it simply brought back all of those previous special modes. Picross e5 also plays it safe and is essentially an expansion of the previous game,...

  • News Image & Form Reveals That Steam Powered Giraffe is Producing the SteamWorld Heist Soundtrack

    Will appear in-game, too

    SteamWorld Dig, the 3DS eShop title — since ported to other platforms including Wii U — propelled Image & Form to prominence among Nintendo gamers and the wider gaming community, so there'll be plenty of attention on the upcoming SteamWorld Heist. Less a sequel and more of a spin-off, it sees the steam-driven robots...

  • News Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Version 1.1 Now Available To Download

    Gotta patch 'em all!

    Following the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in North America, Australia, and New Zealand last week, The Pokémon Company has released an update for the new entries in the series that irons out various bugs and provides a smoother game experience. All 3DS owners who have a copy of either of these games will...

  • News Nintendo of America Announces Upcoming eShop 'Cyber Deals'

    Like Black Friday without the crowds

    We're heading into one of the biggest shopping weeks of the year, but Nintendo's keen to accommodate those that don't feel like venturing out into crowded shops. While there are hot releases arriving on the eShop in multiple regions, Nintendo of America has now confirmed that it'll also be running eShop 'Cyber...
