Yoshi's Woolly World Has Limited Impact in Japan as Yo-Kai Watch Busters Dominates

3DS retains overall hardware lead despite PS4 boost

The latest chart results have been released out of Japan and bring a mix of good and middling news for Nintendo. To begin with software, the results bring us the début of Yoshi's Woolly World on Wii U, and its impact has been fairly underwhelming; the title sold 31,158 units in its first week...

Heading Back to the Farm in Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale

Of Cabbages and Kings

Nestled snugly between Senran Kagura's bountiful bosoms and the Cold Steel of the latest Legend of Heroes chapter, Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale occupied a relatively unassuming spot at XSEED's E3 booth last month, but it certainly left quite an impression.

Review: Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven (3DS)

Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven (3DS)

Domestic Bliss

When Rune Factory developer Neverland sadly shut up shop in 2013, there was still one project left on the table - a brand new story-driven SRPG named Lord of Magna. It lay unfinished until Marvelous miraculously reassembled part of the original team to finish the game, and we're lucky they did; it's not perfect, but with fun battles,...

Out now in North America

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley was a divisive 3DS entry in the franchise, with some opinion that Natsume's attempts at modernising and evolving the series weren't a success; for our part we considered it to be below par. In any case, it'll have its fans, and around eight months after its release Natsume has issued an update...
