Fallblox Confirmed for November Release in eShop

Sequel to Pullblox known as Crashmo in NA

When speculating before Nintendo of Europe's latest Nintendo Direct broadcast, it's unlikely that many gamers would have predicted the confirmation of Fallblox, a sequel to the rather excellent Pullblox on 3DS eShop; just as Pullblox was known as Pushmo in North America, this latest entry will be known as...

NightSky Lights Up 3DS eShop On 25th October

Starry night

The long-awaited Nicalis title NightSky has finally be given a North American release date, with the 25th October being the day to mark on your calendars. NightSky started life as a WiiWare release, but never saw the light of day (get it?) and eventually launched on the PC. The 3DS port was confirmed by Nicalis last year. To quote the...

Cave Story (3DS eShop)

Spelunker

Stop us if you've heard this one. A guy by the nom de plume of Pixel made a really great game all by himself and released it on PC for free in 2004. It's called... Oh, so you have heard it. We thought so. In 2012, Cave Story needs no introduction. It's not an unknown quantity. In fact, not counting this eShop release, publisher Nicalis...

Wii U eShop "More Open, Social and Indie-Friendly" Than Wii

We should hope so, too

Although we don't yet know much about Wii U eShop, we're continuing to hear good things about it from some developers with an inside perspective. The latest to step forward is Broken Rules, which is bringing Chasing Aurora to the new system this November. When it comes to giving a comparison with the download service on Wii,...

Review: Quarth (3DS eShop / Game Boy)

Quarth (3DS eShop / Game Boy)

Break it down

Originally released for the Game Boy in 1990, Konami's Quarth takes the presentation of a Space Invaders-type shooter, and instead gives us a puzzle game. As tempting as it might be to enter these stages with guns blazing, what Quarth actually requires is a healthy amount of foresight and on-the-fly problem solving. It's not without...

Little Inferno Aiming to Light Its Wii U Fire on Launch Day

Get those eShop cards ready

Little Inferno is quite possibly one of the most fascinating upcoming Wii U eShop titles, as it's from the creators of WiiWare classic World of Goo as well as Henry Hatsworth in The Puzzling Adventure on DS. It's also interesting because all we've seen is teaser footage, so we're yet to find out how the actual game plays...

News: Wii U and 3DS Pre-Paid eShop Cards Spotted

Wii U and 3DS Pre-Paid eShop Cards Spotted

DSiWare and WiiWare left out of the party

The arrival of the 3DS eShop saw Nintendo move away from Nintendo Points, the custom currency that, in the opinion of some, was far from ideal. The 3DS eShop has continued to evolve and now allows top-ups of a download's value, for example, so the days of buying a block of 1000 points when you only need 100...

The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave (3DS eShop)

Radioheads

When we first started hearing the news about Denpa Ningen no RPG coming to the West, we didn't know what to expect. Its visual debt to Nintendo's Miis and Pikmin intrigued us, and the fact that the brains behind this game had their fingers in Pokémon Colosseum and great series such as Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy and Ogre Battle meant...
