News: Nintendo Confirms Two More Début Releases Coming to the Virtual Console

Nintendo Confirms Two More Début Releases Coming to the Virtual Console

Wii U and 3DS both covered

The Nintendo of America download update is always a popular arrival, but the region's habit of announcing future arrivals is also a neat bonus. It helps when the announced Virtual Console games are enticing, too, which was certainly the case last week with confirmation of two Castlevania titles making their VC débuts...

2nd October (North America)

Smash Bros. arrives, Castlevania goodness, 99Seconds and more

It's that time again, North American gamers, with details of this week's Nintendo Download Update treats now here. The headline arrival is rather obviously Super Smash Bros. on 3DS, though we have some other choices — including a Castlevania title's Virtual Console début — to...

News: More Minecraft Mania Looks Set for Wii U With Stone Shire

More Minecraft Mania Looks Set for Wii U With Stone Shire

From voxel fans Finger Fun Games

Throughout human history we've had various eras in which one resource or object is craved in great numbers — we had the gold rush in the US, the coal rush wherever it's found, Rush the movie, RUSH the game and plenty more besides (you got a bit lost there - ed). We're now in the midst of the Minecraft rush on...

Battleminer Screens Show Some Familiar Block Building On the Way to 3DS

MineBattle

It was only recently that we were talking about U Craft, an apparent Minecraft clone coming to Wii U, though we've now received some fresh screens of an equally blocky title on the way to the 3DS eShop. Announced earlier in the summer and due in North American in the next month — later elsewhere — is Battleminer, which is bringing its...

Review: The Keep (3DS eShop)

The Keep (3DS eShop)

Old dungeon, new tricks

Many dungeon crawlers tend to come pre-packaged with a dose of nostalgia through the nature of the genre alone, their exploration and equipment elements resonating as familiar conventions. Stick with a medieval fantasy theme like The Keep and it feels even more from Yon Olde School. The story of The Keep is kept rather...

Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Details on the Way in Japan

Niconico and Pokémon Get☆TV in the act

Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire arrive soon, with Nintendo no doubt hoping that they'll have a major impact on Holiday sales in the same manner as Pokémon X & Y in 2013. While plenty of features and Mega Evolutions have already been revealed, it seems that there's yet more information on the...

Capcom Shows Off Comparison Screens For Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

No objections here

Just prior to E3 this year Capcom announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy will arrive in the West as a 3DS eShop download in Winter this year.

Review: Hideaways: Foggy Valley (3DS eShop)

Hideaways: Foggy Valley (3DS eShop)

Low visibility

It’s hard to believe that the 3DS eShop houses so many hidden object games within its figurative walls. We haven’t tallied an exact count of these games on offer, but we do know that there are very few that we’ve scored higher than average; in most cases we’ve found them to be unsatisfactory. It’s a pity that we've seen a...

Review: Top Model 3D (3DS eShop)

Top Model 3D (3DS eShop)

Not so style savvy

There are going to be many unhappy customers in the eShop thanks to Treva's Top Model 3D. The misleading title would suggest an affiliation with any number of popular reality television series, such as America's Next Top Model, but there is no branding to be found. The atrocious presentation is going to turn off anyone expecting a...

Shovel Knight Triumphantly Exits Final Testing Phase For International Release

"We’ll be shipping up and shipping it out the door!"

North American players have been playing — and enjoying — the excellent Shovel Knight for what feels like an eternity now, but the game still hasn't launched in other parts of the world. Thankfully, the wait for non-Americans is finally drawing to a close, as developer Yacht Club Games has...
