Ponytail and midriff mysteriously removed

Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates must think North Americans don't appreciate masculine heroes with luscious locks and bellies showing.

Nintendo Pocket Football Club (3DS eShop)

Back of the net

I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport Hero Hawaii (3DS eShop)

Come fly the frazzled skies

All right, let’s address the 500-ton jumbo jet in the room: I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport Hero Hawaii is a long and silly name. Although IAAATC is actually an established series in Japan, it’s not the kind of title that tends to inspire great confidence in the West. That’s too bad, in a way, as Airport Hero...

Review: Young Justice: Legacy (3DS eShop)

Young Justice: Legacy (3DS eShop)
