Ratalakia Games also reveals two other Nintendo titles
Fresh from PAX
3DS online action RPG hybrid Heroes of Ruin got another trailer today detailing the magic-based class that is the Alchitect. The walkthrough video below talks you through the class's abilities and battle strategies, which could come in handy if you're planning to deal out some lightning-based damage come June. There's also a bad dude...
Everything's a weapon
It's not just feet that pose a serious threat to eternal whipping boys the Goombas; tennis balls cause them serious harm too. Nintendo's new trailer for Mario Tennis Open showcases some of the new special games, from a Super Mario Bros.-inspired romp through World 1-1 and 1-2 to a Super Mario Galaxy face-off against a Luma. You...
Yesterday's announcement of Pokémon Conquest — that's the English name for Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition — for North America now brings with it a brace of trailers. The first is the opening movie you can expect to watch on your DS come 18th June, while the other is an introduction to the gameplay mash-up of grid-based strategy,...
This time it's personal
eShop scrapper Johnny Kung Fu caught our attention with its Game & Watch-inspired stages, and there's a further glimpse of the old-timey presentation in this second trailer below. UFO Interactive hasn't given a date for Johnny Kung Fu yet but when it does, we'll pass it on.
With a shade over two months until we hit the Wii U information motherlode at E3, Wii's time is just about over. While the mainstream will likely remember it for introducing motion control and kickstarting the party and fitness game crazes, Nintendo UK wants you to think fondly of its contributions to the adventure and roleplaying...
Full of heart
3DS scrapper Code of Princess — from the same team behind SEGA Saturn classic Guardian Heroes, remember — is shaping up to be one intriguing title, as these two new trailers show off. The first video is what you'd expect: anime cut scenes, Japanese singing and a jester fighting with a guitar. The second shows off the game's chaotic...
New game from Flipper creator
Ace Mathician from Goodbye Galaxy Games — the one-man team behind Flipper and Flipper 2: Flush the Goldfish — is branching out from goldfish to create a game about a koala that solves mathematical problems in a platforming context. Really. Hugo Smits sent over the first trailer that explains a bit more about the...
Contains classic witch voice over
Upcoming — for Europe, anyway — Wii RPG Pandora's Tower is just a few weeks from launch, so Nintendo has some footage from the English version of the game to show off. The trailer below is a little lighter on the English accents than we've come to expect from recent RPGs Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story,...
UFO Interactive's supporting the 3DS eShop pretty heavily: it's already released Samurai Sword Destiny and has Zombie Slayer Diox lined up for this week. It's got another project in the works in the old-school shape of Johnny Kung Fu. The side-scrolling beat 'em up has a stage based on the classic Game & Watch LCD display, where...
Battles, and then more battles
Upcoming 3DS title Fire Emblem: Kakusei, or Fire Emblem: Awakening as its known outside of Japan, undoubtedly has eager fans clamouring for a release date. With the title due to hit Japanese stores on 19th April specific worldwide details have not yet been forthcoming, though Europe has been confirmed for a 2012...
It might turn you to stone
Haven't had your fill of Kid Icarus: Uprising media after the 3D anime and 3D screenshots, here's some — 2D — footage of the game in action. The Medusa trailer below is one of the better videos Nintendo's released, with new bosses, weapons and wizards of various foods on display. At 4:38 it's got everything you could...
They're through here
It's not long until you'll be able to download Ketzal's Corridors for 3DS, and Nintendo has released a new trailer for the game showing what you can expect. It'll all look pretty familiar to anyone who's played ThruSpace on WiiWare, but hopefully the 3D screen will add something fresh to the experience. Nintendo of America's...
Star of the show
Nintendo's Mario Party 9 is out this week in Europe with a North American release to follow, but if you're not sure what's new in this 11th instalment in the series — don't forget Mario Party DS and Mario Party Advance — Nintendo's put together a video to explain. The trailer highlights some of the brand new boss fights with...
Director has the final say
The Last Story is out today in Europe and creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has co-directed a trailer to get you even more excited. The trailer below gives you an idea of the scale you can expect from Sakaguchi's latest Wii RPG, which by our reckoning is rather good. Don't believe us? Our The Last Story review is pretty...
Dillon's Rolling Western is out in the eShop now, but if you want to see a bit more of the game before dropping your £9 / €10 / $9.99 we have two new videos from Nintendo. The first is the simple launch trailer while the other gives some useful tips for mastering the game's tower defence leanings. If you've picked the game up yet...
Special trailer released
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is still months away, but you can feast your eyes on ten whole minutes of in-game footage with Square Enix's new "special" trailer, embedded below. The trailer ticks all the right boxes, with a mixture of CGI footage, Japanese singing and a look at Tron world, featuring what's...
New trailer inside
Short and to the point (because typing out the title wears out our fingers) — Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 is due out in North America on 28th February, and we have a fresh trailer to share. There's also an official site to clap your eyes on and some screenshots below these very words. If you're yet to try the series,...
Those boys just can't get along
You might have seen this Tekken 3D Prime Edition trailer before, but it's so good it bears a second, third and fourth watch. Featuring Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition mastermind Yoshinori Ono, it's all in aid of upcoming 3DS scrapper Tekken 3D Prime Edition, which features 41 characters, online play and more. It's out..
We mean it
Kid Icarus: Uprising's intriguing Fiend's Cauldron mode is the subject of this new trailer. The Fiend's Cauldron lets you bet previously acquired hearts to ramp up the intensity of levels; the more hearts you bet and the more difficult the stage, the higher the reward. The video makes it all pretty clear, so have a look and buckle down...
And that's why we love it
Of course the new video for Rhythm Heaven Fever defies explanation: that's a series trademark by now. Dancing lobsters, on-stage baseball and a cryptic message in the final frame all make this one of those trailers you'll tell the grandkids about. North America, you get the game on 13th February.
The release of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy on 3DS isn't far away: in Japan. The rhythm game based on one of the most famous RPG series of all time is still only confirmed for the Land of the Rising Sun, with no indications from Square Enix that it intends to release the title elsewhere. Fans of the series can only hope, and the newly...
You can cry if you want to
The latest Mario Party 9 trailer is in and shows off some of the 80+ minigames you can expect when it launches in March. Long-time Mario fans will pick up on countless references: Super Mario Sunshine's Piantas make an appearance, but there's plenty more to see if you keep your eyes peeled. How many can you spot?
Resident Evil Revelations has almost arrived, and is certainly the year's first blockbuster retail release on 3DS. The hype has been building, and Capcom has now released a five-minute trailer that reveals more about the title's story. The publisher may have taken the 'Revelations' part too seriously for some as this trailer contains some major spoilers, so stay away if you..
Two months and counting
Yesterday Nintendo revealed more details about Kid Icarus: Uprising, and now we have a fresh trailer to share too. North American residents who pre-order from select retailers (to be confirmed) will also receive a download code for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus. Check out the trailer below — which contains the immortal line...
Square Enix action adventure Heroes of Ruin made it onto our list of The Biggest 3DS Games of 2012, with a new trailer below coming along to whet your appetite. The video might be heavy on questions instead of answers but you can always listen to our podcast interview to clear up some of Heroes of Ruin's details.
Contains a lot of monkeys
Rhythm Heaven Fever is just one month away in North America, and Nintendo is upping the tempo with a new teaser trailer. Showing off a selection of bizarre games — our favourite is the high-fiving monkeys on a clock face — the game's certainly lost none of its imagination in the transition to Wii. Here's the trailer to get you amped up for its 13th February release.
Take a look inside
While you might have played Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked on 3DS, you'll need to adjust back to 2D to take on the next entry in the series, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, due out this year on DS. Atlus put out a new trailer for the game with a rather morbid theme, but there's some jollity to it as it reveals a February release for the RPG. Check it out..
Ripe and ready
Harvest Moon: First Earth — or Bokujou Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi — is coming to Japan in early 2012 and we have a little more footage of the 3D farm 'em up. The trailer below doesn't show us much more than we knew already, with character customisation and the ability to throw houses both displayed, but it does contain cute pictures of your sprogs and finished with a shot of..
Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword was on Nintendo's eShop Q1 2012 release schedule, and now we have the first English language trailer. As well as timing-based sword fighting the game also features a little bit of exploration as you walk around talking to villagers and learning that throwing frogs at your opponents "gives them the...
Towering above all
Dillon's Rolling Western has one of the weirder set-ups of any 3DS download game: you're an armadillo in the Wild West who has to spin into enemies and build towers. It's odd, but as it's developed by Nintendo it's probably going to be pretty good. We reported yesterday that Nintendo America put new 3D trailers in the eShop but...
Budget Wii shooters are almost literally ten-a-penny these days, but PQube's Wicked Monsters Blast might have a little something about it. The four-player family-friendly shooter is already out in North America but is due to reach the UK in February 2012, and judging from the trailer below takes heavy inspiration from Point Blank and even a touch of Nintendo's WarioWare series. Check..
Now we know that Kid Icarus: Uprising is due for release in March 2012, Nintendo has released a new trailer showing the game off. The Sin and Punishment-style aerial sections still look superb, and the new ground-based bosses are formidable as ever. There's also an appearance from adversary Dark Pit, who's sure to be one of the main...
It was a dark and stormy night
SEGA's CRUSH3D is ready to hit 3DS in early 2012, and now you can get a feel for the story that sets the whole thing up. The game is a dimension-squashing puzzler: main character Danny can compress — or "crush" — three-dimensional stages into two dimensions for easy passage. It's a lot simpler than it sounds: a recent CRUSH3D tutorial trailer might make..
Resident Evil Revelations might be one of the best looking games on the way to 3DS but, as is the series' tradition, it's not just an exercise in graphical grunt: there's a nonsensical plot tying it all together too. Publishing partners Nintendo and Capcom just released a new trailer introducing Terragrigia, a European city that's central...
Oh, that was easy
One of the earliest third-party games revealed for 3DS James Noir's Hollywood Crimes finally makes it to Europe today, and we have a new launch trailer to show off. Originally called Hollywood 61, the game has one of the most bizarre plots we've ever heard in a game: as a contestant in a 1960s game show, you soon discover a diabolical criminal mastermind is murdering your fellow..
The game that has it all
SEGA's Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure is one of the more... original looking titles on the way to 3DS in the coming months, as the new gameplay video below ably shows. From playing football (soccer) in the street to pulling poses to blend in with topiary, the game rivals even Elite Beat Agents for oddness, and looks all the better for it. Excited gamers in North..
Intelligent Systems at work
Pushmo — known as Pullblox in Europe and Hiku-Osu in Japan — is coming to the 3DS eShop next month, and to get you geared up Nintendo has released a new trailer and some screenshots for the download release. Created by Intelligent Systems — the team behind Fire Emblem and Advance Wars — the game is designed to...
Out this week
SEGA's mascot just hit 3DS in North America today, and to celebrate here's a brand new launch trailer. The video shows off Sonic Generations' stages, bosses, multiplayer and StreetPass mode, so if you've been waiting to see which classic and modern Sonic moments are revisited in the 'hog's first 3DS outing then wait no longer. Sonic Generations is out in North America today and..
Mario and friends take stock
Property board game Fortune Street (Boom Street to Europeans) might not sound like the most exciting upcoming game for Wii, but if this video below doesn't have you jumping for joy when Mario increases his net worth and is able to purchase the bank... well, there's a good chance you're not even human. Genuinely interesting, however, is the presence of classic Mario and..
Action RPG on the way
One of Wii's brightest lights for 2012, Pandora's Tower just got its first European trailer showing just what to expect when the game's released next year. Although the trailer isn't localised into English (or any other European language, for that matter) at least Nintendo of Europe is giving you a little peek into the game's...
Remember when we told you that you wouldn't have to face the nightmare alone in Resident Evil Revelations? We meant it — Capcom has just sent over a trailer of the multiplayer co-operative Raid mode for you to digest. It seems the multiplayer component takes in specific missions rather than the regular story levels and in truth it doesn't look too different to the standard game,..
Q & A 2
In all the excitement over Super Mario 3D Land and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, we almost forgot another iconic gaming character is due to return this Christmas. Rayman Origins on Wii and 3DS are both on the way before Christmas, and so it's time to learn a little more about them with a new trailer and a little Q&A with director...
Have a blast
Just checking: is Shin'en Multimedia's Nano Assault still one of the best looking games on 3DS? Yes, yes it is. That's good, then. The new trailer for the game — out in North America on 22nd November for just $29.99 — shows off more of the same fantastic graphics we've come to expect from Shin'en. The accompanying press release also contains the word "nemeses", so good..
Just for you
It's Friday, and that means one thing: time to get down. It also means time to check out some brand new footage of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, with three trailers to choose from this week: Goddess Cubes, Eldin Volcano and the Earth Temple, all right here. Skyward Sword is just four weeks away. Getting excited? Goddess Cubes Eldin Volcano Earth Temple
More to share
Nintendo just released a new video sharing a little information about the StreetPass mode in surefire Christmas hit Super Mario 3D Land as well as some of the other recently announced features and characters. The local sharing function allows players to exchange so-called "Mystery Box" levels with each other. These stages are...
Also contains giant dragon
Level-5 and Brownie Brown collaboration Fantasy Life is shaping up to be pretty special, if the super-cute video below is anything to go by. Revealed this past weekend at Level-5's regular press event, the video shows off some of the game's anime-styled cut scenes as well as in-game footage of the fantasy world itself. As you'd expect from a collaboration between..
Just stay away from Soho
SEGA's next spin on multiplayer sports is just a month away, and to get you all excited for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games the publisher has revealed a new trailer showing off the game's London Party mode. The minigame mode sees Mario, Sonic and friends take to the streets of England's capital city in...
No, not Nintendo Life reviewer
Japanese developers Level-5 and Brownie Brown — creators of Professor Layton and Mother 3 respectively — are teaming to make Fantasy Life for 3DS, an RPG about keeping your job at the end of the world. Famitsu (via Siliconera) reports that the game will feature 20 jobs including chef, lumberjack, scholar, street...
It led you here
Are you ready to start your weekend with new details about the most anticipated Wii game of the year? We strongly advise reading on, then. Nintendo has released a new trailer and details about Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, with the first video below showing off the brand new dowsing ability. The press release promises details about...
Nintendo, you are really spoiling us
If there was any doubt at all that Super Mario 3D Land is one of Nintendo's biggest focus titles for 2011, the sheer amount of new material released for the game lately should put those thoughts to bed. After 74 screenshots, new character artwork and panoramic artwork, now
The ultimate warrior?
THQ's battle of the ages WWE All Stars is coming to 3DS, and we've got the first video footage below. Admittedly the game isn't the most visually impressive game we've seen on the console yet, but hopefully it can deliver in the gameplay department with 43 playable characters and brand new modes including survival challenge...
It's going to have a good try
The DS has had more games about cleaning dinosaur fossils than we ever imagined: Dinosaur King, Fossil Fighters and the upcoming Fossil Fighters: Champions to name three. Now, to get you really excited, Nintendo has released a video showing exactly how to clean fossils in its upcoming DS adventure. The trailer below...
And it's not even Valentine's Day
He was a ruffian from the wrong side of the tracks: she was a Princess who longed to explore the world. Their romance flourished, with the help of a talkative genie and a magic carpet. Hold on... we've got something mixed up along the way. The latest trailer for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword plays up the romance...
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy might read like a decent (if short) game of Scrabble, it's actually the name of Namco Bandai's upcoming aerial dogfighter, and it looks a lot like this. Containing such fantastic dialogue as "a coup on the day of the treaty signing?!", the trailer does show off some of the game's rather impressive graphics, which we imagine will look even..
Release dates, trailer and screenshots inside
If you're having trouble planning a trip this winter, Namco Bandai Games may have the answer for you. The company's upcoming Wii title Go Vacation has players explore Kawawii Island in an open-ended fashion, racing, scuba diving, playing volleyball and more, as you can see in the screenshots and trailer...
Longer and uncut
Resident Evil Revelations is one of our most anticipated 3DS games of 2012, and that was before we saw the trailer below that looks to make some of the best use of the stereoscopic 3D since Dead or Alive: Dimensions. The trailer below may not contain any gameplay footage, but the quality of the animation is undeniable, even if we haven't quite figured out how Rachel manages to see..
All together now...
Two of the DS's greatest heroes are combining in one 3DS adventure. Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright is real, and it looks like this. The first thing worth noting is the 3D polygon models of Layton and Phoenix are remarkably faithful to their original two-dimensional selves, with the familiar sight of Wright's brow dripping...
Screens and trailer inside
Nintendo is finally starting to open up about Animal Crossing on 3DS, with a set of new screenshots and a short trailer unveiled at the Nintendo Conference this week. AC aficionados will be pleased to hear the game is due for release in 2012, with new features letting you become head of the village to lead its development,...
It's a generally accepted fact that if you're off on a long adventure, the things you find at the start won't be as good as the things you find at the end. If only the shopkeepers realised this and relocated to the smallest town possible, they could make a killing from young adventurers. Anyway, that aside, this new trailer for Legend...
All systems go
The motion controls in Mario Kart Wii divide opinion amongst gamers, so it'll be fascinating to see the reaction to the new first-person gyroscope controls in December's Mario Kart 7. The new mode is briefly shown in the new trailer below, alongside new additions such as the Fire Flower power-up and returning favourites too. There's fresh screenshots even further down as well,..
Those tails get everywhere
The return of the Tanooki Suit in Super Mario 3D Land is causing a lot of excitement, but even more exciting than seeing the tail pinned on Mario is seeing his age-old adversary wagging the stripy length of fur around like a dog with a bone. The new trailer below from Nintendo Conference 2011 shows the raccoon tail...
A beast of a game
Yesterday, we announced that Monster Hunter 4 was headed to the 3DS, the next entry in Capcom's popular franchise. You can now watch the announcement trailer below over and over, which the company has revealed is more concept than gameplay footage. Still, it's fun to watch, ain't it? There's no confirmation yet that this title will...
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy trailer, AR screens inside
During Nintendo's 3DS press conference yesterday, one game that caught our eye was Square Enix's upcoming JRPG Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, set for release in 2012. The name may not sound like much, but now you can glimpse gameplay footage in the trailer below. We previously announced that...
Fills a VOID, too
Gaijin Games' double-whammy of retail BIT.TRIP compilations — BIT.TRIP COMPLETE on Wii and BIT.TRIP SAGA on 3DS — is about to hit retail across North America, so what better time to indulge in a brand new trailer showing the games off? In case you weren't sure which version to pick up, our handy Feature: BIT.TRIP SAGA vs. BIT.TRIP COMPLETE should help out. We'll have full..
Mini RPG mode revealed
Kirby Mass Attack's enormous army of pink... things is just around the corner, so Nintendo is taking the time to show off some of the bonus games packed into the DS cartridge. As well as the platform antics there are several minigames available, including pest-whacking Field Frenzy, mini RPG Kirby Quest and the pinball-like Kirby Brawl Ball. All that extra content alongside a..
It's just too far away
SEGA's Aliens: Infestation is sneaking up on its late September launch date like a particularly stealth facehugger, and now we have a trailer showing the game off. Created by Shantae: Risky's Revenge team WayForward, the game looks set to combine shooting with exploration, which will do us very nicely indeed. Check out the...
While we're waiting for a release date for Furry Legends: Beginnings here's a trailer to make the wait a little easier. Gamelion sent over the new trailer showing what's in store when the Furries and Squaries face off in the upcoming downloadable DSiWare game. There's still no firm release date, but as the game was recently sent to Nintendo for approval we're hoping for some news on that front..
It was in the kitchen with the candlestick
Konami's story puzzler Dr. Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights may have missed its summer release — according to Nintendo's 2011 release schedule, it's now down for November — but it's still looking like another interesting addition to the 3DS software line-up. We now have a fresh new trailer from Gamescom 2011, complete with German subtitles, which only..
It's got special vehicles in it
Presumably all the vehicles in Star Fox 64 3D are special — they're flown by animals, after all — but these machines are extra special. Ahead of the game's release in September, Nintendo's put out a trailer to remind you — or teach you, if this is your first go-around with the Star Fox crew — about the...
But who put those Flickies on a bus?!
Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is racing towards the Wii finish line later this year, with a 3DS version due out — perhaps more appropriately — in early 2012. We now have a new trailer for the game, likely to be the introductory video getting you all into the Olympic spirit. Showing off events from volleyball to synchronised swimming,..
Time to tuck those trouser legs into your socks
Before arcade shooter Centipede: Infestation gets released on the Wii and 3DS later this year, Atari would like to open our eyes to the types of bugs we'll be disposing of via a trailer aptly named, "Bugs Trailer". Players will take on the role of Max as they travel the wasteland that the...
Heroes of Ruin is one of the 3DS's most promising third-party titles for next year, and Square Enix has just released a brand new trailer showing you what to expect in 2012. We recently played the game in London and came away genuinely impressed by what could be a truly important title for 3DS. Be sure to read our Heroes of Ruin preview for an overview of what developer n-Space is cooking..
Duck and cover
The adorable pink ball of whatever-he-is, Kirby, is coming back to DS for one last appearance with Kirby Mass Attack. Nintendo has just shot over a hot slice of video footage and some screenshots too, which you can find below. We played the game in July, so if you want to know more you can hurl yourself into our Kirby Mass Attack preview. Kirby reaches North America on 19th..
We're not far from Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2, so it's time to take a look at the plot that drives Square Enix's spin-off from the ever-popular RPG series. Islands, monsters and statistics are the order of the day as usual, but with a twist: you can recruit monsters to fight alongside you in this sub-series, lending a new twist to the action. Anyway, here's the trailer ahead of the..
Part of the DSiWare genus
Having passed Nintendo's lotcheck earlier this month, Gamelion's Crazy Hamster will gnaw its way to the DSi Shop early August. Players will help the little hamster get from one part of the level to another via a selection of tools that will help the little fella navigate the terrain as if it was Bear Grylls. Gamelion has...
Prope's fishing game reeled in this Fall
From hedgehogs to kiwis, Yuji Naka has been involved with games that star somewhat uncommon animals and his studio Prope is getting ready for the release of its upcoming Wii game that follows a similar trend: this time, it's fish. Since leaving SEGA in 2006, Naka went on to found Prope and along with fellow ex-staff members from Sonic Team, Naka began..
Let us set the scene...
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 is only a few months away you know, and this short but sweet trailer for the game sums up the next Square Enix adventure quite neatly. You crash land on an island and must gather and train an army of monsters to stay alive. It's a little different from the traditional Dragon Quest gameplay, with enough of its own quirks to be worth a look..
What, no barrel roll?
Nintendo has released a fresh trailer for the upcoming Star Fox 64 3D, due for release on 9th September in Europe and North America. This new video shows off various parts of the single-player campaign, including linear levels and some dog-fighting (or fox-fighting) action. There are some impressive graphics on show, while various members of the cast are introduced, mostly..
100 Points a pop
Just JAM, the music-based WiiWare game from Big John and Zivix Interactive, released earlier this month, and now the first two batches of downloadable content have gone live. You can preview the first selection in the trailer below, which includes Soar by Roster McCabe, Shadow Godz by The Alpha Centauri and Let's Dance To This by Apollo Cobra. The second trailer showcases the next..
If you like difficult levels, it's for you
The game has still not been released in Europe and North America, but details of the upcoming DLC for La-Mulana have now been revealed. Downloading the 300 Nintendo Point package will unlock a boss rush mode, which comes with a timer so you can try to beat your best times on it. But any La-Mulana veterans will know that the next feature's the most..
The strongest Link?
While we anxiously await a release date for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, have a new trailer for the game straight from San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer is 1:45 of pure gameplay footage and shows the return of the Gorons, the evil (and goth-tastic) Lord Ghirahim and plenty more aspects of the game we haven't seen yet. We got to...
It's here, in fact
You may have seen this trailer for Shinobi already, but we wanted to remind you that SEGA is finally bringing the ninja warrior back eight years after his last appearance. The 3DS adventure is in development at portable specialist Griptonite, with a September release date pencilled in from Sega. Players take control of Jiro...
Blocks are best
If we said "here's a cool-looking racing game from the creators of Enjoy Your Massage!" you'd probably close your browser and race to scrub your eyes clean of those three hideous words linked to one of WiiWare's worst-ever games. Don't do that, though — 3D Pixel Racing actually looks kind of cool. Boasting a graphical style not dissimilar to breakout PS3 hit 3D Dot Game..
Could it be magic?
The boy wizard might be facing his final adventure at the box office, but he's got at least two more DS games in him, with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 due later this year. It's not the only magical outing though, as next week sees Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II - The Video Game — surely the best name for a game ever — released on Wii and DS. The game ties-in..
More jumping action for WiiWare
Since Anima Game Studio's Ark of Sinners announcement last November, we haven't heard much on the 2.5D side-scrolling platformer. A recent report by Revogamers has put an end to that quiet spell as the publication has revealed the game will be released some time in July. The main character in Ark of Sinners is a young...
Look for the trailer in this article
All the pieces are in place as Mastertronic gets ready for the release of its upcoming hidden object game, May's Mysteries: The Secret of Dragonville. The puzzle game's central character is a young girl named May who's looking for her brother. Presented in a hand-drawn style, the game will task players with...
We're not making this up
DSiWare's one and only valet parking game, Valet Parking 1989, certainly doesn't lack style: set in a world of big hair, shoulder pads and neon lights, it's like nothing on DSiWare. Where do you go from there? The world of grass-cutting in the 1950s, of course. 1950s Lawn Mower Kids — which we're not entirely sure isn't a joke — is the next downloadable offering from..
Upcoming DSiWare title dated
CIRCLE Entertainment has announced the release date of its upcoming action download title for the DSi. The publisher ― whose previous DSiWare releases include Castle Conqueror, Peg Solitaire and The Seller ― has got in touch to let us know The Lost Town - The Dust will be launching in North America on 30th June. Set in a remote town in the South American
We scouted it for you
With the hustle and bustle of E3 dying down, it's time to catch up on something unrelated to Wii U and 3DS, as we bring you the trailer of the latest instalment in the Dragon Quest Monsters series. The second title in the spin-off series ― Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 will see players scouting and collecting monsters as they build their ultimate battling team. Scouting..
Well, maybe not your sense of smell
Shin'en Multimedia's first 3DS game is the microscopic Nano Assault, and now we have the first video footage of the game in action. As you might have expected, it looks pretty stunning. This off-screen footage from E3 shows off the game's standard top-down shooting gameplay as well as the tunnel-esque Escape mode. We'll let Majesco's Manny Hernandez take you..
Augmented reality comes to DS
Abylight's next offering for DSiWare isn't another entry in its Music On series, but a neat augmented reality offering called AfterZoom. The studio just sent over a new trailer of the title which you'll find below. The concept is that players will use the DSi camera to hunt out microscopic organisms in everyday objects:...
Extreme Hangman was a sleeper hit for DSiWare, so when Gamelion announced Extreme Hangman 2 none were surprised. If you were keen to see more of what was on offer, here's the first trailer below.
