    Third Guild01 titles gets a confirmed date

  • News Urban Trial Freestyle Revving Up For 3DS eShop

    Parkour on two wheels

    When the 3DS launched way back when, Nintendo made NES classic Excitebike available on the eShop to download for free; yet since then we've had little to satisfy our bike racing needs. Luckily for fans of the genre Tate Interactive has revealed it is bringing its newest game, Urban Trial Freestyle, to the 3DS eShop. The game...

  • News Nano Assault EX Blasting Onto The 3DS eShop Soon

    Should be available before the new year

    Nano Assault Neo is available in the Wii U eShop right now in North America — and will be in Europe on Wii U launch day — but there's also a portable release coming to the 3DS eShop that takes its cues from retail release Nano Assault. As Shin'en man Manfred Linzner described it to us, it's really Nano...

  • News Wii U Can be Used as a Portable Home Console

    Not something we ever considered...

    We never thought we'd see a Wii U treated as a portable system, but that's exactly what's happened with a keen Japanese gamer — importing a system ahead of time clearly wasn't enough on its own. The console isn't portable, of course, but on select games you don't technically need to use the TV; a power outlet is...

  • News Publisher Dream Bringing Game Development Aspirations to DSiWare

    Release your games on the "cShop"

    Not too long ago Circle Entertainment brought Bookstore Dream to DSiWare, a thoroughly decent resource management sim that drew inspiration from similar titles available on smartphones. In that case it was all about managing stock and attracting customers, but the developer has announced a new entry in the series,...

  • News New Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney Trailer Points the Finger

    More puzzling gameplay details solved

    Capcom and Level-5 have revealed more details about the gameplay in the latest trailer for upcoming crossover title Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney.

  • News Invasion of the Alien Blobs Bringing The Fight To DSiWare

    Fear the blob

    G-STYLE, a developer most prolific and well known for download software released in Japan, is bringing another one of its DSiWare titles to the West. This time around it's Invasion of the Alien Blobs!, which was known as Shunkan Tsubutsubu Tsubushi when released on the Japanese DSi Shop back in March 2010; it'll arrive in North America...

  • News Trine 2: Director's Cut Springs To Life With A New Trailer

    A story about a joker, a thief, and a knight

    Despite only launching a couple of days ago, the Wii U's eShop is slowly building up it's own library of downloadable games, with one of the forerunners being Trine 2: Director's Cut. While the original game launched last year for PC and other home consoles, this Wii U exclusive version comes with the...

  • News Guild 01's Aero Porter Is Landing On The 3DS eShop This Month

    Ever wanted to run your own airport?

    Following on from the interview snippets from Level-5 earlier today, the company has announced that the next Guild 01 title - Aero Porter - will being flying west onto the 3DS eShop this month - November 29th, to be precise. Better yet, North America and Europe will be getting it on the exact same day, priced at...

  • News Level-5 Discusses Guild 01 Localization Details And More

    Maybe some new titles on the way too?

    As you're no doubt already aware, Guild 01 is an interesting compilation of games spanning from four unique developers. Liberation Maiden has already graced our 3DS consoles, with Aero Porter and Crimson Shroud making their way to the west in the not-too-distant future. One title that hasn't been mentioned for...

  • News New Super Mario Bros. U To Jump Into DLC

    Additional courses planned

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 did something new for the core Mario franchise: it introduced DLC. While much of the game may have felt familiar — not always a bad thing — the idea of extra content being made available after release was new for the series, and has added some longevity to the Coin Rush mode. In an Iwata Asks...

  • News Soccer Up 3D Screens Viewable Via This Handy QR Code

    Cameras at the ready

    EnjoyUp Games has been busy in recent weeks releasing titles such as La Mulana on WiiWare and Abyss on DSiWare. Its next project is Soccer Up 3D, which as you may have guessed makes the leap onto the 3DS eShop. Soccer Up! has previously been released on WiiWare but obviously didn’t include any 3D visuals. Helpfully, EnjoyUp...

  • News Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition Looked Set To Be "Simplified"

    Nintendo wanted it to stay "hardcore"

    As we all know, Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition will be on the shelves on the same day as Wii U launches. The game is not only a true rendition of the version found on other consoles but also has new exclusive elements, such as extra Nintendo themed character costumes and the return of Tekken Ball. It...

  • News Nicalis Blasting onto 3DS eShop with Guxt

    Shmup from Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, creator of Cave Story

    Nicalis may have a rather questionable record of localising its download titles in all regions — mention Cave Story on DSiWare or the 3DS eShop to a European and see what happens — but it does actively seek to bring high-quality indie releases to Nintendo systems. When you consider that...

  • News Rabbids Rumble Launch Trailer Fights For Attention

    In case you missed out on your daily dose of crazy

    Rabbids Rumble, the newest entry in the Raving Rabbids series, was released yesterday for the 3DS in North America, and is due out on November 16th in Europe. To kick off its launch, Ubisoft has released a launch trailer which should provide you with your daily (or weekly) dose of sheer insanity...

    Another one for all you football fanatics

It exclusively makes use of the UEFA Champions League and Copa Libertadores competitions, and allows...

  • News ZombiU Live Action Video Shows Multiplayer Battle

    All hail the Zombie King

    Halloween may be gone for the year, but one particular Wii U game will be playing on the fact that, for many of us, it's the time of year with long, dark nights. ZombiU is one of the most eagerly anticipated Wii U launch titles, with early impressions emphasizing the complexities and difficulties it'll offer, as well as its...

  • News Toki Tori 2 Lands on Wii U eShop on 20th December

    Not for use in festive meals

    Toki Tori 2 is likely to be one of the most widely recognisable names in the early weeks of the Wii U eShop, due to its predecessor being one of the leading titles to herald the arrival of WiiWare. The diminutive little chicken isn't going to be quite ready for launch day, however, with confirmation from Two Tribes that...

  • News Take A Look At The Gatorade-Infused Exclusive Features Of Wii U NBA 2K13

    Is it the shoes?

    2K Sports has slam-dunked a Developer Insight video for its upcoming NBA 2K13 for the Wii U. The video pays particular attention to hilariously-titled Gatorade Biometric Scanner. This feature allows you to quickly view your player's fatigue level and see whether they're hot or cold; all this can be done simply by holding the...

  • News Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Live Streaming Confirmed, But Not on Wii U

    It's "being evaluated for a future update"

    Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops II will feature YouTube support to live stream online multiplayer League Play games, with the player's webcam and audio commentary also recorded. Those who pay for the Elite service, meanwhile, will be able to view additional info on players as they...

  • Out Now Animal Crossing: New Leaf Starts Life in Japan

    Time to get envious

    So, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is out now in Japan, released on 8th November. Once we got over the irritation of discovering that we were a day late, we thought we'd look at what we know so far, point you to previous articles that have stacks of information, compile some nice gameplay footage and look at the reaction to the game...

  • News Fallblox Crashes Into Europe on 15th November

    Mallo returns

    Fallblox — or Crashmo in North America — is one of a number of highly anticipated eShop games arriving before the end of the year. It hits North America on 22nd November, but anxious Europeans wondering about their release date can now relax, as it's arriving in the region one week earlier on 15th November. Nintendo's also...

  • News Rytmik World Music Bringing the Beat Back to DSiWare

    Get composing

    Cinemax has confirmed that it's bringing Rytmik World Music to DSiWare, the fifth entry in the music composition series. It's a series that's had consistently strong recommendations in our reviews, with each entry bringing an accomplished and detailed music studio to your DSi; they're perhaps best reserved for enthusiasts and those...

  • News Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Trailer Brings the Madness

    Includes a panda dressed as Princess Peach

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition will be available on launch day, and will include a number of features and modes exclusive to Nintendo's console.

  • News Crashmo 3D Screens Are Just a QR Code Away

    A sneak peak

    Crashmo — known as Fallblox in Europe — is one of the 3DS eShop's big releases due before the end of the year. As a follow up to the critically acclaimed Pushmo, it's likely to be on a number of 3DS owner's wishlists. Of course, 2D screenshots don't necessarily do this title justice, especially with the extra depth to the new...

  • News Mass Effect 3 Wii U Content Detailed

    DLC becomes on-disc C

    Mass Effect 3 was one of Wii U's major third-party announcements for a launch release, bringing one of the year's biggest blockbuster titles to the system. The excitement is perhaps dulled by the fact that it's the concluding part of a trilogy, and that a special edition combining the games, Mass Effect Trilogy, is out today...

  • Developer Interview Pwnee Studios Talks About Cloudberry Kingdom and Wii U

    "We have learnt to expect bizarre events"

    With all of the excitement surrounding the upcoming release of the Wii U console and its retail launch titles, it’s easy to forget the assortment of potentially fantastic Wii U eShop titles also heading our way. One of which is Cloudberry Kingdom, a platformer which promises to supply the gamer with...
