Review: The World Ends With You (DS)

The World Ends With You (DS)

Animazing

Tearing up many RPG conventions that its publisher Square Enix put into place, The World Ends With You is vibrant, energetic and an absolute blast to play. You play Neku Sakuraba, a young Japanese kid who wakes up with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. So far, so standard, right? It would be, except for the fact he wakes up...

Reader's vote returns!

So E3 is over for another year, now a distant memory as we look to the future to anticipate when we might all be able to join Corbie in appreciating the 3DS for ourselves. It's not time to forget just yet; in fact, quite the opposite: it's time to celebrate the best of E3 in our imaginatively titled Nintendo Life Best of E3 Awards!

Iwata: Nintendo Looking to Improve Online Efforts

Company is "not satisfied" with current functionality

When it comes to online functionality, Nintendo doesn't rank particularly high among developers – and they know it. Earlier, Shigeru Miyamoto expressed the company's need to rethink it's online strategy on a macro level. Now, in an investor Q&A session held during E3 last week (via Kotaku), CEO Satoru Iwata explained t

Interviews: Okamiden - Capcom

Okamiden producer answers a few of our questions

Okamiden has remained under the radar for the most part as of late, so it was nice to see the game on display at E3 2010.

Since the game is being..

Something old and something new

With so many great games on the E3 show floor, it was difficult to find the time to get in some solid playing time on them all. But of all the titles I was fortunate enough to get to play during the E3 show, it was Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light that I found myself going back to time and time again whenever I had a free moment in between booth visits. I think I..

Secret of Mana On the Way to iPhone, Not DSi

Square classic misses DS transfer

It's a classic entry in the pantheon of RPGs: Square's Secret of Mana for Super Nintendo is widely regarded as one of the finest games in the genre, even after all these years, but other than the less well-received Children of Mana and Heroes of Mana we haven't seen the series reach the DS. It looks as though that injustice isn't about to be rectified any time..

UPDATE: Corbie, our man at E3, has just been in touch with his first thoughts on the 3DS: Played the 3DS in person and it's unreal. The level of depth and clarity on the screen is incredible.
