Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash and Its amiibo Confirmed for North America and Europe

Swinging onto 3DS

Over the weekend we saw a new Chibi-Robo announcement from Japan, including a rather cute amiibo. Pleasingly this is making its way around the world, with the title being given the name Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash in the West. The platformer looks set to be a retail release in North America, at least, as the amiibo (pictured above) will...

News: Bravely Second End Layer is Heading to the West in 2016

Bravely Second End Layer is Heading to the West in 2016

The wait begins

Bravely Second End Layer has proven to be a success in Japan, and considering the highly respectable sales of its predecessor in the West it's little surprise that it's now confirmed for localisation. The Square Enix-published RPG had recently been trademarked in Europe, so this isn't particularly surprising news. Both Nintendo of...

Splatoon Grabs Second Place in UK Chart Début

Biggest ever new IP launch on Wii U

Splatoon has just had its first big weekend on Wii U, with plenty of players hitting the online servers to splat the ground and each other with ink. It's a new IP that's had a fairly substantial marketing campaign, too, so the question has been whether all of that promotional activity would pay off at launch. We...

K.K. Slider Hat and Outfit Confirmed as DLC for Super Smash Bros.

It's a dog's life

While Mario Kart 8 has provided two core packs of fairly substantial DLC, Super Smash Bros. has delivered a range of options with one new fighter so far - Mewtwo - and a batch of Mii Fighter outfits. When you add all of the Smash Bros. DLC together there's already a hefty selection, albeit the outfits are limited to specific...

Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Palico Village DX Heading to Japan This Year

Rather like Animal Crossing x Monster Hunter

A combination of a Japanese Nintendo Direct and a live Capcom fan event have brought news of two more MH titles heading to the 3DS.

News: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, amiibo 3DS Portal and New Nintendo 3DS Hardware Dated for Japan

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, amiibo 3DS Portal and New Nintendo 3DS Hardware Dated for Japan

It's actually quite pricey

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer remains a bit of an oddity, at least in the opinion of this writer. It appears to be a rather simplistic game in which you decorate homes to satisfy cute characters, adopting one small part of AC charm into one package. It's also a vehicle for the first range of amiibo cards, which will...

Fire Emblem If Allows You to Build and Manage a Town, All Four Current FE amiibo Supported

Ten minute presentation video released

It may not be coming to the West until 2016, but Fire Emblem If is hard to ignore as a result of its rapidly approaching release in Japan. With two distinct versions - and a third arc available via download - it's a title ambitious in scope, expanding upon the excellent Fire Emblem: Awakening. Today's Japanese...

Monster Hunter X (Cross) Confirmed for Japanese Release

Monster Hunter fabulous

Although the dust has only just settled for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Capcom has wasted absolutely no time in announcing the newest game in the series, Monster Hunter X (Cross). Taking inspiration from the arguably more dramatic Frontier series, this game seems to build heavily upon the engine and assets found in Monster...

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 Won't Include Zelda Costumes In The West

Outfits designated as exclusive to Japan

Koei Tecmo has revealed that the Western release of the 3DS title Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 will not come with the unique Zelda-themed content that launched alongside the Japanese edition. When the game was released in Japan, Link and Zelda outfits - lifted from the Wii U brawler Hyrule Warriors - could...

Square Enix Has Trademarked Bravely Second In Europe

Is a localisation announcement on the horizon?

Square Enix’s highly-acclaimed fantasy JRPG, Bravely Default, was a critical hit here in the west when it was released in 2013. With the release of the sequel in Japan last month, the real question now is when will Bravely Second be localised? In an exciting development, Square Enix has just...
