Impressive Kickstarter campaign adds console support
That's 999-2, to you

Newly titled Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, the adventure game will come with English and Japanese language options and 24 endings, with fully-voiced story scenes too. Aksys pledges to release the game before...
We're not kidding
Most Nintendo gamers are currently pre-occupied with their current consoles and perhaps looking ahead to the arrival of Wii U. It's surprising, therefore, to hear about a new title for Super Nintendo, but that's exactly what is on the way. Retro developer and publisher Super Fighter Team has confirmed that it is currently...
Bringing the heat
The Fire Emblem series has been around for 22 years, though it only became well known outside of Japan with the arrival of Game Boy Advance. Since that time there have been plenty of new titles, remakes and Virtual Console appearances released worldwide, so the announcement of Fire Emblem: Kakusei last year came as little surprise...
Not quite as expected
Pokémon series director Junichi Masuda appeared on Japanese television show Pokémon Smash! this morning to finally make his highly anticipated announcement. Two new games, Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version 2 were revealed, although next to no information was given. The extent of what Masuda revealed were the...
New video inside
Kid Icarus: Uprising got the lion's share of attention during today's Nintendo Direct broadcasts, with the game's online multiplayer the subject of much discussion. The video below shows most of them in action but if you're more of a reading person — which, as you're on a gaming website, we imagine you might be — there's...
Time to feel the beat
It's been confirmed today that Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure will hit 3DS in Europe on 5th April. In good news for the title's hopes for success, Nintendo of Europe will be teaming up with SEGA for its distribution. With a combination of mystery and touch-screen rhythm-based controls, this is one of the more..
Notable absences, though
Capcom will finally release Super Nintendo classic Mega Man X in Europe next month, nearly a whole year after its North American début in April 2011. The 16-bit blaster isn't the only Virtual Console game present in Nintendo's release list for early 2012 — while there's no Strider or Super Street Fighter II with online...
Inazuma Eleven 2 Blizzard and accompaniment Inazuma Eleven 2 Firestorm are taking potshots at European DS consoles from 16th March 2012. The team-up is easily the highlight of a pretty thin DS release schedule for the upcoming months, though it's worth pointing out that Cave Story is down for release next month. No, we don't quite...
Mario Tennis Open's global release dates are in, and it's a tight grouping. North America gets the game first on 20th May, before Japan on 24th May and Europe on 25th May. Camelot's first online game in the series includes head-to-head multiplayer with skill-based matchmaking. Nintendo has also revealed you'll also be able to pick up...
Is there a Dr, Duck in the house?
Fresh from the list of upcoming 3DS eShop games for Europe comes some new announcements of Virtual Console games you can expect to see too.

Just what the doctor ordered
It's been confirmed that a new entry in the Dr. Kawashima series is on the way to 3DS. Though no exact release date was given it's due in Japan this summer, with worldwide plans yet to be confirmed. This new entry will focus on two key areas: concentration and working memory. It will consist of intense exercises to be...
Online play confirmed
After earlier confirmation of Mario Tennis Open launching in Japan on 24th May, it's been confirmed that Europe only needs to wait one extra day with the title landing on 25th May. Further details were also confirmed, including online and local multiplayer, with download play conveniently available for four players. It will...
Served for an ace?
Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata has confirmed, through his Nintendo Direct broadcast, that Mario Tennis Open on 3DS will be released in Japan on 24th May. It's the latest first-party offering to be released as part of Nintendo's revival of the handheld, and it's the fourth time — including Virtual Boy — that Mario has taken to the...
Holy licensing, Batman
For those of you in North America that enjoy some cartoons on a Saturday morning, you may be looking forward to the upcoming second series of the Young Justice series, which follows teenage superheroes and sidekicks from the DC Universe as they fight crime. A series like this is also ripe for a video game, and it seems that...
After Bit Boy!! on WiiWare, download developer Bplus is bringing the series to 3DS with Bit Boy!! ARCADE on the way to the eShop in 2012. This portable version has several additions over its WiiWare brother, with new stages, weapons and blocks, plus the ability to buy continues with Play Coins. Bit Boy!! ARCADE is 50% complete...
Magic and swords galore
There's now little over a week until The Last Story is released in Europe, and Nintendo has released a new trailer to show off some of the game mechanics. After an introduction to Lazulis City, an important location in the game, the action quickly moves to battle mechanics: a variety of enemies and attack strategies are...
Interest x 20
When we posted up CIRCLE Entertainment's six new DSiWare games, we only had a little information to go on for most titles, but we've since heard more details about Ace Mathician that might put it on your radar. Flipper developer Goodbye Galaxy Games is behind the maths-based puzzle platformer, which promises multiple mathematical...
Isaac still waiting for word
Last week we reported that the European release of VVVVVV was getting nearer with Nicalis confirming, via Twitter, that the title had been given a PEGI rating. Once again the publisher has been tweeting good news, with confirmation that the final bug fix in the European version is complete and the game is being sent to...
Hard to see through all the remakes
There are two groups of gamers likely to know about MYST: those of us that have reached a certain unflattering age, and others who enthusiastically track down adventure games on DS. For the uninitiated, MYST is a 'point-and-click' adventure game originally released on Mac OS in 1993. It was unique at the time for...
Six titles revealed
Chinese publisher CIRCLE Entertainment is one of DSiWare's biggest supporters, releasing 11 games in the past 18 months. That run of form is set to continue over the coming months as it's announced a further six titles on their way to DSiWare. The line-up features: Pirates Assault — a "tower defence game with a...
Japanese obesity set to soar
Nintendo of America recently teased us on its official Kid Icarus: Uprising website by confirming that AR events are on the cards, though there were no details on how to get additional cards before these events. If the planned Japanese promotion is anything to go by, it may be time to dig out that old exercise bike. As...
Free Map returns
If you're anticipating Fire Emblem Kakusei (that's Fire Emblem Awakening in English) for 3DS, you'll be pleased to know a few more details about the upcoming strategy RPG have reached our eyes. According to Jump Magazine (via Andriasang), the game brings back the free-roaming map system as seen recently in the GBA Ambassador...
Tekken 3D Prime Edition's bulging cart of 41 characters and a full-length 3D movie is nothing to be trifled with, and the latest Iwata Asks reveals plenty of interesting nuggets — and, indeed, noodles — about next week's scrapper. One such fact is that the stereoscopic display isn't available in wireless multiplayer. A footnote...
Wants gamers to go 'Auuugghhh'!
Tekken 3D Prime Edition is less that a week away, the second major 3DS release of the year so far. It's a fighting series typically associated with experienced and mature gamers, but in the latest Iwata Asks Katsuhiro Harada has spoken about his desire to bring Tekken to a broader range of players, and explained why 3DS is the perfect platform. His source of..
Kirby's Dream Land is one of the best-selling Virtual Console games on 3DS, so it's no surprise Nintendo is preparing 1995 follow-up Kirby's Dream Land 2 for Japan's eShop next week. The portable platformer heads to Japan's store on 15th February, and will hopefully bound its way over to Europe and North America before too long. In the...
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,...
Question: what's pink and blocky?
Kirby's Block Ball, of course, down for a European release on 3DS Virtual Console next week. The little pink thing's second appearance on 3DS VC after Kirby's Dream Land, Block Ball is a Breakout-like game with Kirby in it. It's not complex. No price yet but expect it around the £3.60 mark.
Feel the power of flames
Well-respected fighter King of Fighters '97 is the next game to join the Wii's Virtual Console, landing next Thursday. Despite the fact the Western VC hasn't got King of Fighters '96 yet, the next instalment is down for Europe on Thursday 9th February for 900 Nintendo Points. Will you be dropping your points to pick up this snazzy scrapper?
The box cover stole our tagline
After the popularity of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure on Wii and 3DS, it seems that turning toy figurine franchises into video games could become a bit of a trend. Just announced is Gogo's Crazy Bones for DS, due to arrive in North America in March. This title doesn't appear to feature 'portal' functionality that...
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..
It's all so dramatic
The latest trailer for The Last Story has arrived, introducing the main group of characters and showing off some dramatic moments. There are a lot of grand set-pieces, clashing swords and even a dragon packed into the second half, suggesting that Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi hasn't held back in the storyline. The...
Don't forget your groove
Nintendo has announced a swanky launch event to celebrate the upcoming North American release of Rhythm Heaven Fever. Taking place on Friday 10th February, the evening will include a chance to play the game as well as freebies, food and other entertainment. The launch is open to the public on a first-come, first-served...
New features in the shadows
Last week we heard from Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono, who stated that the Wii U is more capable than what we saw at E3. Ono said he couldn't reveal more due to fear of Nintendo assassins, by which he may be referring to previous Nintendo collaborators Team Ninja. In an interview with Nintendo Gamer magazine,...
Triple the fun
Not long ago we discovered that Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance was being released as part of a rather attractive 3DS hardware bundle in Japan. During that announcement Square Enix also confirmed that there would be a 10th anniversary special edition release, though no details were given. The suspense is now over. As reported...
Light or Dark?
Now we have worldwide release dates for Kid Icarus: Uprising, Nintendo is stepping up its pre-release information campaign with details about the game's multiplayer modes. Players will be able to unlock extra weapons from multiplayer skirmishes, taking these into the single player adventure or using them against human opponents...
NES pugilist title Punch-Out!! is the next game coming to Japan's 3DS Virtual Console. Due next week for 500 Yen, it's the third NES game to join the service but the first that wasn't released to 3DS Ambassadors: both Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda are available to buy in Japan. Looks like hopes for a 3D Classics: Punch-Out!! just...
Helicopter hair and all
Ubisoft has revealed Rayman Origins will release in North America on 20th March. The portable platformer is based on the critically acclaimed 2011 home console release, with StreetPass functionality thrown in for good measure. We've got some fresh screenshots below to get you all geared up for Rayman's upcoming adventure.
Step on it
Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed it's bringing Project CARS to Wii U in 2012. The studio behind Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed confirmed its latest racing project is on the way to Nintendo's next home console alongside PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game's description mentions several features Nintendo fans have been requesting for some time: user-generated content..
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...
Free 3D Classics: Kid Icarus for some pre-orders
Kid Icarus: Uprising isn't far away, and as one of the first titles to be teased for the 3DS all the way back in 2010, it's been a while coming. Nintendo of America is starting to crank up the hype generator and have issued the following press release, with a number of details about the title. Some of...
It's so pretty
It seem like the Japanese market is enjoying quite a few special edition 3DS consoles, with the Metal Gear Solid themed console due soon. Not to be outdone, Andriasang reports that Square Enix is also preparing its own hardware bundle for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Once again it's the black 3DS that receives a...
Shotguns at the ready
The GO Series has been quiet on DSiWare for a few months but it's about to return with action shooter GO Series: Undead Storm, a four-player co-operative shooter that shares a small similarity or two with Valve's legendary zombie face-off. Developed by Japanese team G-Style, it's a top-down affair with support for four players...
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.
Maybe not as expected
Kid Icarus: Uprising has seen some delays, with some attributing the March release to the upcoming Circle Pad Pro. That was only a rumour, though Director Masahiro Sakurai has now confirmed that the peripheral will be a available to use in this title. Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine, Sakurai confirmed that an extra...
3DS exclusive features also unveiled
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D has been on the horizon of the 3DS for a while now, but a European release date — and official box-art — has finally been confirmed. It hits the region on 8th March, with further confirmation that it will support the Circle Pad Pro, the second title to do so after Resident...
Shambling into view
Resident Evil: Revelations isn't far away, all set to bring terror into the third dimension. For those eagerly anticipating this new entry in the survival-horror series there was good news from Christian Svensson, senior vice president of Capcom. Responding to enquiries from fans about a demo arriving in the eShop, Svensson...
Zen Studios has just confirmed Zen Pinball 3D will reach the North American eShop on 12th January, costing $6.99. The balls-and-bumpers game was released in Europe on 1st December 2011, but North Americans get their chance to try it out next week. The studio has also confirmed it will support the game with downloadable content in...
Slithers into view
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D has been a long time coming, but series creator Hideo Kojima has taken to Twitter to tease details about the stealthy title. His latest revelation, as reported by Andriasang, is that there will be a Metal Gear Solid-themed 3DS system released as part of a bundle. A release date of 8th March has been confirmed, but due to the vague nature of tweets..
Team Meat tries again
As you may recall, the rather terrific Super Meat Boy from developers Team Meat never made it to WiiWare as originally planned. Despite a lot of anticipation and hype, the file size limitation on the service was too restrictive, and plans for a retail release fell through. There is hope for Nintendo gamers, however, with The Binding of Isaac reportedly being sounded out to..
Trippy Game Boy release Trip World is part of next week's Nintendo Download in Europe. Sunsoft's second 3DS Virtual Console game after Game Boy Color outing Blaster Master: Enemy Below, Trip World is pretty graphically impressive for a Game Boy game, with a barmy plot about a stolen flower and an innocent hero who can transform...
More swordplay on the way
We know what you're thinking. "Silly Nintendo Life editor," you scoff. "The 3DS eShop's upcoming swordfighting game is called Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword, not Samurai Sword Destiny." You roll your eyes and tut, forgetting we're the most knowledgeable people in the world when it comes to downloadable...
VVVVVV lands in the 3DS eShop across North America next week for $7.99. Terry Cavanagh's retro-styled action platformer lands on the service courtesy of Cave Story publisher Nicalis, and arrives with its original stages, music and art style all intact. Nicalis also promises "future content updates" — could this be the first 3DS...
90s point-and-click adventure Myst will come to 3DS on 27th March 2012. Publisher Maximum Family Games is promising new content in the form of new landscapes and the addition of the RIME Age. Manny Granillo, CEO of developer Hoplite Research, is very excited about it: In 3D, each scene jumps from the screen and really puts the player in the game! Well, we'll see about that in..
DSiWare turns the tables
Teyon's habit of cramming 101 things into one DSiWare game continues unchecked, with the next title from the Polish developer, 101 Pinball World, due on 12th January 2012. The DSiWare bumper basher will set you back 500 Points and includes 101 tables spread over four themed worlds: Wizard World, Alien Spaceship, Halloween and Pirate's bay. Let's hope the gameplay is a..
Happy Valentine's Day!
Namco's panda-puncher (now there's a PETA campaign waiting to happen) Tekken 3D Prime Edition will take on North America from 14th February 2012. The 3D fighter arrives with CGI movie Tekken: Blood Vengeance intact, and another promise that it'll "make the most of the Wi-Fi functionality" of Nintendo 3DS. What does that even mean, Namco? Please be more precise with..
Here's a truly rare event: Nintendo of America has announced a 3DS Virtual Console game a week in advance. Bionic Commando is coming to the service on 29th December, as revealed by the Nintendo Facebook page. There's no official price yet but expect it to come in around the $3 mark. Are you polishing your grappling gun in anticipation?
Teyon's been quiet on DSiWare for a while but that's about to change this week, as Chronicles of Vampires: Origins will reach North America on Thursday. The vampire-related hidden object puzzle will cost 500 Points and looks a lot — in fact, exactly — like the trailer below. Other games due to reach North America in this week's download include Mighty Switch Force, Doodle Fit and
The company that loves heroes
Chinese studio CIRCLE Entertainment loves the word "heroes" as much as it loves the word "castle" — hence Castle Conqueror — Heroes then — with a new DSiWare game keeping the tradition alive. 3 Heroes – Crystal Soul is due out in North America on 5th January 2012, and looks like a mix of puzzle and strategy judging from the trailer below. At..
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...
Get ready to RAID
Resident Evil Revelations is the first big game of 2012, and Capcom wants to show you more of its online-capable Raid co-op mode in a live stream later today. Starting at 3pm PST/6pm EST/11pm GMT over at Capcom Unity's Twitch TV page, the stream will show off the mode's unlockable characters and weapon customisation across several...
Release date down
Music makers in North America can get to grips with Rytmik Retrobits next week, but if you want something a bit more contemporary then we have good news: Hip Hop King: Rytmik Edition is out on 12th January 2012 for 800 Nintendo Points. That's not all Cinemax has on the way in the next 12 months: it's also bringing 90's Pool, Goooooal Europa 2012 and Sokomania 2, a sequel to budget..
Out in January
3DS doesn't have a huge number of sports games in its catalogue but you can add one to that number in January, when PQube's Winter Sports 2012 lands across the UK. The 3DS version of the chilly compilation features seven disciplines and 50 challenges to complete, with a character designer and slow motion replay mode too. There's also a Wii version out around the same time with ten..
What could it be?
Pokémon super site Serebii reports that a new Pokémon game is set to be revealed in early 2012. Japanese magazine CoroCoro claims to have the world exclusive on a new Pokémon game in its next issue, due out on 14th January 2012. There are no further hints about what it could be, so feel free to engage your rampant speculation modes and shoot the breeze in the comments below.
Brick your 3DS
Considering how well 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure and Kirby's Dream Land have been performing in the 3DS eShop Charts, it's no surprise Nintendo is bringing more pink-themed games to the 3DS next year. Nintendo's latest release schedule reveals Kirby's Block Ball is coming to the 3DS eShop in early
It's a good list
The 3DS eShop is picking up steam lately, what with the recent update and excellent software like Pushmo, and Nintendo wants to keep that momentum going into early 2012. The company just released a broad outline of its release schedule for the eShop in the first quarter of next year, with some good titles in the mix. Sadly there's...
Nintendo Europe's DS release list for 2012 doesn't contain much in the way of retail — apart from the announcement that Inazuma Eleven 2 is on the way to Europe — with the rest of the schedule populated by DSiWare games. One of the new titles announced is Victorious: Hollywood Arts Debut, which has just come out as a full-priced retail release on DS. Pity anyone who paid..
Mario Party and more
Proving that there's life in the old dog yet, Nintendo Europe has sent over a list of Wii games you can expect to play in early 2012 and beyond. While there's only one WiiWare game on the list — and most disappointingly no Virtual Console titles — the retail releases are still of a pretty high calibre, with big hitters...
Nintendo of Europe has announced Professor Layton on 3DS will release across the continent in 2012. Known in Japan as Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle — currently called Professor Layton 5 in Europe — was released with 3DS in the Land of the Rising Sun. Layton and Luke arrive in the town of Montdol to investigate the...
What's on the cards?
Nintendo Europe's seemingly never-ending list of games due out in 2012 includes this list of gems on the way to 3DS in the next 12 months. As well as confirming Professor Layton for 3DS in 2012 and a March release date for Kid Icarus: Uprising, there are a few more gems in here to make 2012 look like a bright year of gaming indeed. Bear in mind Nintendo says these are..
Nintendo Europe has finally issued a vague March release window for much anticipated 3DS game Kid Icarus: Uprising. Pit's glorious return has seen significant delays: originally intended to be a 3DS release game, it's been pushed back to respond to feedback about the controls during its ground section.. Nintendo Europe also gave a broad...
Heading to DSiWare, maggots!
Abylight's Elite Forces: Unit 77 is bringing a touch of strategy to DSiWare this week in North America and Europe. A downloadable port of the 2009 DS retail release, Abylight has taken the opportunity to introduce new features: there's now local multiplayer for up to four players, a more accessible difficulty curve and...
WiiWare sports sim Soccer Up! is out next Thursday, and if you feel like gathering a few friends around for some holiday season soccer action here's two brief videos showing all the fun you could have. The game supports four-player local play with no need for Nunchuks. It all looks like the kind of silly knockabout football that did the rounds in the 1990s when Sensible Soccer ruled the..
Never let it be said that originality is dead. Cypronia is about to unleash Cake Ninja on an unsuspecting DSiWare service next week. The game tells the story of a ninja sent to destroy all the cake so his wife can't eat it. We're not making this up. As you can see in the video below it's more than a little similar to Fruit Ninja. Cake Ninja is...
In North America, that is
Chip music studio Rytmik Retrobits is set to reach North America in two weeks, Cinemax tells us. Out on 22nd December for 800 Nintendo Points, the latest entry in the Rytmik series uses 16-bit-styled samples to let you create your own tunes that evoke memories of gaming days of yore. We rather liked it, as you'll glean from our Rytmik Retrobits review.
He's-a gonna ween
Japan's Super Mario Land trilogy reaches completion next week, as Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 reaches the Virtual Console. Regarded as one of the best platformers on the Game Boy, Wario Land was OFLC rated so we expect to see it in Europe and North America pretty soon, perhaps even before Christmas. Cross those fingers now.
Aksys Games just announced a new retail release for 2012: Shifting World. The game might seem familiar to the 16 million-plus people who've played Shift online or via its iOS release. It's an enjoyable puzzle game that flips black and white and up and down to create some mind-bending puzzles. Shifting World on 3DS obviously brings 3D...
Soccer Up! has been knocking the ball around comfortably in its own half for some time now, but it's finally committed to a serious attack on WiiWare's football-free zone and is due out in two weeks. North America and Europe both get the Mii-powered kickabout on 22nd December for 500 Wii Points. Here's the teaser trailer below complete with fantastic voice over work.
Club Nintendo members in Europe who register 2 3DS games could win a Mario 3DS, with everyone who registers getting a free download code for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus. Want to see what the game looks like before you go rushing out and buy two 3DS games? Here's the first trailer. As you can tell the game adopts the same aspect ratio as 3D...
Developer interview inside
Things have been a little quiet on the Animal Crossing 3DS front so far, with Nintendo dropping new information as often as rare furniture falling from a tree. However we now have an officially translated version of a recent developer roundtable, revealing some juicy new details. One of the more interesting updates is the...
Get 3D Classics: Kid Icarus free, too
Nintendo Europe has just announced a new sweepstakes contest to encourage 3DS owners to purchase and register select 3DS software titles. Club Nintendo members who register two selected 3DS games between 1st November and 31st January 2012 will receive a free download of 3D Classics: Kid Icarus, and will also be...
Update: no multiplayer
Update: Nintendo of Europe has clarified that Luigi's Mansion 2 is not multiplayer, and that the game's information was updated incorrectly. Our original story continues below. We're all looking forward to the opportunity to bust ghosts in Luigi's Mansion 2, but we may not need to do it alone, as the game's official...
Don't flip out
The 3DS download software is flowing like a three-dimensional river these days: after Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! this month we've now got Zen Pinball 3D on the horizon, with a European release date and price locked in. The 3DS eShop states the game will see release next Thursday, 1st December, at a price of £4.50. If you...
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...
In case you were wondering
We're currently enjoying a busy period of major Nintendo game releases, but one intriguing third-party title has quietly slipped off the radar. Nano Assault for the 3DS was thought to be due for release this week in North America, but publisher Majesco has confirmed to us that it is has been pushed back to 5th December. As a result gamers looking forward to some..
We've got a crush
SEGA's CRUSH3D — the story of an insomniac who compresses three-dimensional space to cure his illness — isn't like other games. That's probably one of the reasons why SEGA just sent over a new trailer showing how you play the game, due out in early 2012. Let the silky-voiced narrator explain (in quite some detail) how to manoeuvre Danny through his nightmarish world, solving..
You might remember our recent story on Samurai Hirari Sakura, a samurai sword fighting game that hit Japan's 3DS eShop last week. Nintendo of America has now confirmed the game is on the way to North America next year with a new name. Called Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword, the downloadable 3DS game is due out in January for an...
Elephants all in a row
Remember Zoo Keeper? Remember how many hours you lost to it? Want to play it again in 3D? Eager fans crying out "yes!" to all three questions, rejoice: Zoo Keeper is on the way to 3DS in early 2012. Siliconera spotted a listing at the Japanese website of retailer HMV, pitching the match-three-in-3D game for a 26th January release, complete with a quest mode and..
As the first Tekken game to grace a Nintendo console since Tekken Advance nearly ten years ago, Tekken 3D Prime Edition has a lot of catching up to do. Namco Bandai is certainly going all-out to bring a sizeable cast of characters to the 3D fighter, with over 40 characters crammed into the 3DS cartridge. As well as featuring 3DS's...
Earn your stripes
One of early 2012's biggest 3DS games, Resident Evil Revelations, comes loaded with an online co-operative feature called Raid Mode, but now it's surfaced that you have to complete the game's campaign before you can access it. According to Andriasang, producer Masachika Kawata revealed you'll have to make your way through the...
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...
Don't open the champagne yet
