Rune Factory 4 European Release Has Been Cancelled

"MAQL and MAQL Europe would like to thank everyone for their support"

Rune Factory 4 is another excellent title in the ever-growing list of 3DS RPG experiences, though as per its series it has its own rather quirky blend of play styles — dating and farming join heroic questing. We described it as a "gem of a game" and awarded it 9/10 when it was...

NES Remix Miiverse Contest Cancelled Due To Emergence Of Exploit

Cheaters never prosper, but ruin it for everyone else

Remember that NES Remix Time Attack Challenge contest we told you about not so long ago? Turns out Nintendo has discovered an exploit within the game which allows players to post a faster time. Director Koichi Hayashida has therefore issued a statement via Miiverse regarding the termination of...

Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter Releases Delayed in the West

Nintendo Network issues cited as the cause

Boxing Day was an odd day in the world of Nintendo Downloads. Issues with the Nintendo Network continued, while Nintendo disabled Pokémon Bank and withdrew it from the eShop in Japan; it emerged that the launch of the app on 25th December in the company's homeland had contributed to the issues we've...

Nothing Would Make XSEED Happier Than Localising GameCenter CX 3, But It Isn't Happening

Retro-themed sequel could remain Japan-only

US publisher XSEED has ruled out localising the third GameCenter CX title, which means that the game could well remain a Japanese exclusive. The same fate befell GameCenter CX: Arino's Challenge 2, which XSEED passed on due to poor sales of Retro Game Challenge, the English version of the first GameCenter...

Those Lovely Link Between Worlds Club Nintendo Posters Are Sold Out

Sad times...

Late last week we pointed you towards some rather attractive Link Between Worlds posters available on Club Nintendo in North America; they may have come at a pricey 500 coins, but looked worth the investment. Sadly, as has been pointed out in that article's comments, they're already sold out. The set was naturally sought after by...

Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service Due to Online Safety Concerns

Service was "actively misused"

The SpotPass service that allows the sending and receiving of drawings and photographs in Swapnote (Nintendo Letter Box in Europe) has been indefinitely disabled. The online service had been used to distribute "offensive material" to minors, Nintendo said. The software - downloadable from the 3DS eShop - is designed...

Wii U Players Won't Be Able To Join A Clan In Call Of Duty: Ghosts

Not quite a band of brothers

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be rocking a new clan system when it launches soon, allowing fans to form cross-platform battle groups for the game's popular online multiplayer modes. However, something troubles us about the official FAQ for this element of the shooty-shooty, bang-bang game: Clans in Call of Duty: Ghosts...

Rayman Legends Lands With A Thud At Japanese Retail

Less than 1,500 copies sold

Rayman Legends was supposed to be a Wii U exclusive, but Ubisoft changed its mind and delayed the title to accommodate a multiplatform release. However, the wacky epic remains unique to Nintendo's console in at least one region: Japan. Sadly, it would appear that game hasn't been a hit with Japanese players. Although it...

Limited Edition Luigi 2DS Is A Custom-Made Console, Not An Official Product

Rose Colored Gaming fools everyone, including us

We are so glad we used the "rumour" tag when we posted that story about a Luigi-themed 2DS console the other day. Although the photos looked utterly convincing and we — like most of the internet — were taken in by the green-and-white system, it transpires that it's not an official product, but a...

Wii U Isn't Getting Need For Speed: Rivals Thanks To Low Sales Of Most Wanted

"I’d love for it to be way bigger than it was"

The Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted is arguably the definitive version, adding in new features which are exclusive to Nintendo's console. However, it didn't sell as well as expected — which seems to be a key reason why we're not getting Need for Speed: Rivals. The Six

Shipments of Pokémon X & Y Delayed to U.S. Military Exchanges

Government shutdown to blame

The above photo is purportedly taken from a store on a U.S. military base. Although exact details are not known, it is not difficult to believe such a thing could happen, as the partial shutdown of the U.S. government had previously shut down military grocery stores entirely up to 5 days ago and it may take some time to...

Two Tribes Confirms Toki Tori 2+ Level Editor Will Not Hatch On Wii U

From the fridge to the freezer

Earlier this week Martijn Reuvers of Two Tribes took to Miiverse to confirm the developer had been forced to put the level editor for Toki Tori 2+ "in the fridge" due to other commitments. Sadly, it appears Wii U owners won't get the opportunity to play around with the feature as the studio has now stated its...
