SEGA Confirms Western Release Dates and Details of 3D Classics Range

Rejoice, retro fans!

We've been aware of the 3D range of retro remakes from SEGA for a good while, splashing the cash on our Japanese unit while waiting for their eventual localisation. Of course, that's not an option for everyone, so the pleasing news is that SEGA has now confirmed release details for both Europe and North America, with a total...

Phantasm Studios Seeks To Resurrect Ghosts 'N Goblins With Or Without Capcom's Blessing

Ghosts 'N Goblins: Demon World slated for Nintendo eShops

Newly-established Phantasm Studios is looking to bring the legendary Arthur back from the dead with a fresh entry in the Ghosts 'N Goblins series. CEO and founder Monty Singleton has lifted the lid on a Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary funds for development, but there's a catch: he...

Nintendo Download: 31st October (Europe)

31st October (Europe)

Free fitness for U, Castlevania gets super, a lot of discounts and more

This week's download news for Europe arrived a little later than normal, which we'll assume is an attempt to creep us out before they arrive on the creepiest day of the year. This time around we're light on new releases, though a major Wii franchise makes its awaited début on...

Zombie Blaster Removed from the 3DS eShop in North America

The undead now seem to be dead

Zombie Blaster, a DSiWare on-rails shooter, shuffled onto the North American 3DS eShop on 10th October. It seemed entirely suitable for the month that features Halloween, of course, though in our review we awarded 3/10 and said "the only way to really win at Zombie Blaster is to not buy it in the first place". That...

Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies Proves That Capcom Really Needs To Hire More Proofreaders

Spell to get well

Not so long ago, Capcom caused a few unintentional guffaws with its Resident Evil: Revelations packaging spelling error. You'd think that dropping such a notable clanger would encourage the firm to subsequently keep a close eye on its spelling, but having spent a while with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies on the 3DS,...

Retro City Rampage to Utilise Circle Pad Pro

Gunplay just got easier

Retro City Rampage will certainly be a welcome release on the 3DS eShop, making its way to Nintendo's portable after its appearance on WiiWare and a host of other platforms. It's an anarchic game full of energy, so could certainly be ideal for some escapism on the go. With development ongoing the developer, Vblank...

Soapbox: The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Freshen Up

The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Freshen Up

Tom Whitehead's frustrated at the untapped potential of the Virtual Console

OK, I'll join the club and say it. The Wii U and, to a degree, the 3DS Virtual Console are becoming rather frustrating, stale affairs. There's something odd that, years after working through the NES library on the Wii, we're now doing it all over again, despite the fact...

Review: Brunch Panic (3DS eShop)

Brunch Panic (3DS eShop)

Piece of cake

Brunch: a late-start, laid-back, Sunday morning meal where carbo-loading is king, and it's perfectly acceptable to pile as many waffles onto your plate as physically possible. Panic: a state of uncontrollable fear and anxiety; also an excellent Sega CD game. These are two worlds which don't often collide, perhaps — but they come...

Mojo Bones on Bringing Siesta Fiesta to the 3DS eShop and Venturing Beyond Smartphones

"We’ve always been keen to work on 3DS"

While much recent attention has focused on titles on the way to the Wii U eShop, we shouldn't forget that the 3DS store has a prominent role to play in the coming months and years. We've gradually seen the library grow, with plenty of developers using the portable system as their point of entry into...

SEGA's Retro Remakes Down to Fans for "Next Lineup"

Europe and North America still awaits retro 3D series on the eShop

While now a software developer and publisher with other major interests in entertainment such as Pachinko machines in Japan, for some SEGA will always be the hardware and arcade company that brought joy to their early gaming years. It's a strong legacy, and the company often shows a...

Resident Evil Revelations And Mercenaries Are Half Price On The eShop Over Halloween

A nice treat for North American Wii U and 3DS owners

It's that time of year again where people dress as werewolves and other spooky monsters, carve scary faces into pumpkins and dish out candy on Animal Crossing. Yes, it's Halloween and there are plenty of frightful franchises out there to get stuck into over the season, with Resident Evil being...

Every puzzle has an answer!

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is the final iteration in the current trilogy and is due to arrive on 8th November in Europe, while North America will get puzzling next year.

Review: Escape From Zombie City (3DS eShop)

Escape From Zombie City (3DS eShop)

Braaains over beauty

There's certainly no shortage of zombie-themed titles on the 3DS eShop, and it would be easy to lump Escape from Zombie City in with the seasonal shovelware shuffling onto the scene just in time for Halloween — but there's a little more to the story than that. The brainchild of developer Tom Create — responsible for the GO...

101 Penguin Pets 3D (3DS eShop)

These penguins might leave you cold

When was the last time you met someone who distinctly disliked nature’s own best-dressed Antarctic fowl, the penguin? The answer is probably “never”, and Teyon is here to capitalize on that fact with its newest virtual pet product — 101 Penguin Pets 3D. Aimed directly at unsuspecting children and designed...

After a fair bit of waiting, 3DS RPG fans in the West are no doubt looking forward to getting their hands on Bravely Default — it's based on the updated version known as Bravely Default: For the Sequel in Japan. The goal of the fresh iteration is to improve and react to feedback on the...

Review: Snow Moto Racing 3D (3DS eShop)

Snow Moto Racing 3D (3DS eShop)

Wet snow

Zordix's latest 3DS eShop title, Snow Moto Racing 3D, is a would-be fun racer marred by generic presentation, choppy frame rate, and unresponsive controls. The latest in the Moto Racing series – Aqua Moto Racing 3D was previously released – Snow Moto Racing 3D is a smartphone port that doesn't quite make the transition...
