    Review The Alliance Alive

    Alive and well

    In 2015, Atlus published The Legend of Legacy, a 3DS JRPG produced by a dream team of veteran developers with credits on classics like SaGa, Final Fantasy, and Chrono Trigger. The game was met with mostly positive reviews, but at the time, another game was in development from the same team. This game came to be The Alliance Alive,...

  • Rumour New Wario Land Trademark Suggests New Instalment Might Be In The Works

    Super Wario Odyssey

    It was only a couple of weeks ago that we were treated to the shock announcement of a new WarioWare - WarioWare Gold, to be precise - and on 3DS no less. But if a slew of recent trademarks filed by Nintendo are anything to go by, a new Wario Land could well be in the works. Nine trademarks were filed in total,...

    Review Detective Pikachu

    A bolt of brilliance

    We’re now just over a year into the Switch’s life and, despite knowing that the core Pokémon franchise will make the leap from 3DS to the new hybrid console at some point in the future, we know absolutely nothing about how the series might evolve with the huge system differences. Keeping the Poké-dream alive on the...

  • News Nintendo Is Shutting Down StreetPass Relay Stations In Japan

    A passing craze?

    StreetPass is one of the coolest elements of the 3DS hardware and was encouraging people to venture outdoors long before Pokemon GO turned up. Sadly, Nintendo chose not to continue the service on Switch, and we're slowly but surely seeing it fade into history as the 3DS winds down. A sign of things come to has just been announced...

  • Video Check Out This Detective Pikachu Trailer

    No Danny DeVito in sight

    Detective Pikachu is one of the stranger spin-off games to arise from the Pokémon franchise, mixing a talking Pikachu with a Professor Layton-like mystery game style. It’s getting its own movie in the near future, and though the game may be old news in Japan, the impending launch in the West is a major game release for...

    Review Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology

    You can go home again

    The 3DS may be getting on these days, but it’s certainly got plenty to show for its half-dozen years on the scene, including an astoundingly impressive collection of RPGs. ATLUS has been a prolific contributor to this corner of its library, and alongside original titles such as Shin Megami Tensei IV, Persona Q, and Stella...

  • News Kimishima Talks Nintendo’s 3DS Strategy Going Forward

    It’s not going anywhere

    The release of the Nintendo Switch was an unprecedented moment for Nintendo, as it represented the merging of its previously separate home and handheld divisions. It was clear from the get-go that Switch would be replacing the ailing Wii U, but the fate of the 3DS has been left up in the air. With no replacement on the...
