Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight Brings The Beat Down

Hit them with your rhythm stick

Last week brought us a rather entertaining Nintendo Direct broadcast from Japan, which focused on upcoming titles on the way to 3DS in Nintendo's homeland and, hopefully, other regions as well. For those of us that don't speak Japanese half the fun was figuring out what was going on, though if you're still uncertain...

Two Tribes Experimenting with Toki Tori 2 Wii U Level Editor

Hatching a plan

Two Tribes has started work on the level editor for the Wii U version of Toki Tori 2. It's still in proof of concept stage for now, "but it looks promising".

The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the Game Could Come to 3DS

It has a 50% chance, according to Edmund McMillen

Remember The Binding of Isaac? It was a PC-based downloadable title which looked a lot like The Legend of Zelda and took inspiration from the Biblical story of the same name. It also caused a little bit of controversy for its use of religion, so much so that a proposed 3DS edition was scuppered by...

If you want to shoot stuff on your 3DS, Teyon has you covered.

North America, Game Boy Tennis Is Your New Club Nintendo Reward

New balls, please

Nintendo has given the North American Club Nintendo rewards page a bit of a clean, with Game Boy sports title Tennis being the latest addition to the programme. One of the earliest monochrome Game Boy titles, Tennis isn't quite as amazing as Super Tennis on the SNES, but it's still worth a look if you've got some coins burning a...

Review: VectorRacing (3DS eShop)

VectorRacing (3DS eShop)

Lines and lines and lines and lines and lines!

There's an episode of Family Guy in which Peter Griffin attends a production of Uncle Vanya. Partway through the play he stands up, bored out of his mind, and shouts, "for crying out loud, somebody throw a pie!" That's more or less how we felt playing VectorRacing. VectorRacing is the epic tale...

Nicalis is one of the most well-known publishers on Nintendo's download services, and has already weighed in on the 3DS eShop with indie classic VVVVVV, which we voted as our favourite eShop game back in June.

23rd August 2012 (North America)

Racing, metal slugging and the abyss

We've seen some pretty busy line-ups for the Nintendo Download update in recent times, but it's rather quiet this time around: will it be quality over quantity? Each platform gets one game, and the heady days of discounted downloads are forgotten. Still, let's get to it. eShop: VectorRacing (Arc System Works,...

23rd August 2012 (Europe)

DK Jr., mascot golf, puzzles and futuristic baseball

It's another week, and the memories of lazy gaming at the weekend are already drifting away.

Review: Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D (3DS eShop)

Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D (3DS eShop)

This poultry is paltry

There's a story in Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D, but believe us, you won't need one. The game — whose title reads about as gracefully as magnetic poetry — sees you gunning down chickens for 90 seconds. Then, we guess, you can do it again. If you'd like to. You may not, but the option to play again is about the only option the...
