A company rep confirmed to Eurogamer that with a simple six-button combination you can wipe all you

Last month's Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D save file debacle might seem a long time ago now, but it's about time it got dredged up again as it appears Namco has stuck the unpopular system in Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions.

3DS goes retro

3DS's catalogue contains an array of games released on past consoles, particularly the Nintendo 64, with Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64 3D being just two. It doesn't stop there though, as Namco Bandai is preparing to go back even further – to the 1980s, in fact – for the inspiration for its 3DS title Pac-Man & Galaga. As the title suggests it's a combination..

Wow. Nintendo's eShop says this game's out now. Either the internet needs to update that it is, or Nintendo has to fix something! ( Most likely the latter ).

Seriously, I was pretty excited, but hesitant. I hope to see more about this soon, especially a review!

@Teh-Ray: yeah, the eShop was telling me Reel Fishing Paradise 3D was out, so there I was, looking through 4 different stores from it!
I can't wait for this game, it comes out on the 19th.

Looks interesting, I like trippie retro shooters, bring me an R-Type or a Sin and Punishment 3DS please.

I really feel like a dummy now. I logged onto the eShop Thursday (July 21st) and was greeted with a notification that Pacman/Galaga was now available in stores (as of July 19th). I should have learned from the first time the release date was updated. I drove all over town, visited Best Buy, Target, Toys-R-Us, and at least four different Game Stops before an employee actually took the time to look it up in the system, and informed me the release date was July 26th, Tuesday of next week. That's the last time I rely on the eShop for game release information.



Supremeist said:

^@StarDust I did the same thing, but luckily Gamestop told me the actual release date for NA. The eShop even said Reel Fishing Paradise 3D was coming out one day and it was the wrong date. Don't trust the eShop's information, I have no idea why It's all mixed up.

Atleast I got the game today and It's awesome
