The Hand Of Panda Is Looking To Slap The 3DS eShop Soon

Kickstarter campaign for martial arts-inspired title opens

“If you're a fan of the bonus rounds found in most fighting games, wouldn't it be awesome if there was a game based solely on that?” That’s the concept behind The Hand of Panda, which is being developed as an eShop title for 3DS. The developers behind the game are Isaias Martinez and...

Review: Groove Heaven (3DS eShop)

Groove Heaven (3DS eShop)

Some call me “The Human Metronome”

It seems as though rhythm games have really taken off in the past few years, especially on the 3DS. Retail titles have popped up, such as Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, and more recently the eShop has been receiving musical exclusives such as the wonderfully charming Harmoknight. Now Teyon, a publisher that's no...

Review: Crash City Mayhem (3DS eShop)

Crash City Mayhem (3DS eShop)

Crash n’ burn

When you read the words “crash” and “mayhem” in a game's title, it’s only natural to think that it will feature action-packed, frantic gameplay and a wholesome amount of wanton destruction. However, despite being suggestively destructive, Crash City Mayhem is a game that doesn't live up to its own name. While it certainly...

First Impressions: 3D Altered Beast

3D Altered Beast

Wise fwom your gwave

Altered Beast occupies a strange place in Sega's library; when it was first released it garnered a lukewarm response, and its choice as a pack-in title for the freshly-launched Mega Drive / Genesis was a curious one — although its large, bold sprites were impressive for the time, it certainly wasn't strong enough in terms of...

Crazy Taxi Wannabe Coming to the Japanese eShop

Oh, if only it would come West

While in many respects the West is better off than Japan on the eShop platforms — due to publishing rules in Nintendo's homeland — there are some releases exclusive to the region. One of these is the @Simple DL Series from D3 Publisher, which is a sequence of budget 3DS games that have followed on from an...

Fresh Details On Treasurenauts Have Been Excavated

Interview with the developer unearths new information

Back in March, we reported that developer Renegade Kid was working on a new title called Treasurenauts, as the trademark had been spotted on the USPTO website. Very little information was given about the game at the time, so all we could do was sit and twiddle our thumbs. Two months later, the...

Review: The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves (3DS eShop)

The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves (3DS eShop)

Love is in the air

The Denpa Men: They Came by Wave was a wonderful 3DS eShop surprise last year, combining elements of Dragon Quest and Pokémon with AR functionality and a delightfully bonkers style all its own, so we were definitely excited to spot The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves washing up onto our shores as well. This sequel pulls out all the...

Mega Man 5 (3DS eShop / NES)

Super fighting robot

Capcom has been very fast with releasing the original Mega Man series on 3DS Virtual Console, and now we're already up to the fifth entry. As you might expect, Mega Man 5 is quite similar to the four games before it; eight new Robot Masters have appeared, and it's up to Mega Man to stop them and their leader, who appears to be...
