The rather oddly named Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is heading to 3DS consoles all over Japan on 11th October, and to celebrate the release of one of the prettiest games on the system Square Enix has compiled a rather amazing Collectors Edition of the game. The pack includes a copy of the game, the original soundtrack, a 3DS...

The Neo Geo assault carries on

Three more games for the Wii Virtual Console in Japan this month, and as is to be expected now the majority are Neo Geo games. With Metal Slug 3's recent western release, we hope to see some more games for the system coming to the Virtual Console outside of Japan as well. The full list for June is as follows: Super...

The fun continues

There were just two games last month, but this time the count will be slightly creeping up again as Japan is scheduled to get three new Wii Virtual Console games. Just like the past few months, D4 continues to show strong support, as two of the new games will be Neo Geo games, while the remaining one is a Famicom title unlikely to...

Japanese Virtual Console List: April 2012

Slowing down

It's a bit of a slow month this time for Japan, as only two new games will be released. Neither are big surprises: Europe already got one a while ago and the other has already been announced for European release. Both of them are pretty nice games though, so although the offerings are slim compared to normal, at least they're of good...

Japanese Virtual Console List - March 2012

Four more

For the first time in a long while, Japan will actually be receiving fewer Wii Virtual Console games than another region. Europe, to be precise, all because of the truckload of Virtual Console games scheduled for March. Japan will still receive four games though, so let's take a look at what they are. Japan's full list for March is as...

Neo Geo support continues

Japan is getting three more Wii Virtual Console games this month. The scale is clearly tipped in the favour of the Neo Geo once more, as it will see yet another two games. If only we'd see some more Neo Geo games in the West. Japan's full list for this month is as follows: Super Famicom Kunio-Kun no Dodge Ball Dayo Zenin Shuugo! — Essentially the SNES version of Super..

Ringing in the new year

Nintendo of Japan continues to deliver the goods, with three more games slated for release on the Wii Virtual Console this month. Will we see any release in the west at all? The full list for Japan this month is as follows: Famicom Ganbare Goemon 2 — The second game in the classic series (not counting its arcade origins), this was still before any of the titles made it out..

Four score

The amount of releases for Wii Virtual Console in the West has gotten woefully small as of late. Europe hasn't had a new title since early June, while the last handful of releases North America has gotten were all simply to catch up to Europe. The situation isn't so dire in Japan: they've been getting four or more new games per month for...

Check Out the Concept Trailer for Monster Hunter 4

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...

Japan keeps getting the goodies

The Wii Virtual Console might barely be getting any games in the West now — Europe hasn't had any new ones for almost three months — but that isn't stopping Japan from continuing at the same pace as always. This month Japanese Wii owners will get another four new titles to download. Atlus keeps supporting the service with another Megami Tensei title, while the..

Twinbee is Your Next 3D Classic on 3DS

What do you mean, 'what's Twinbee?'

Top-down shooters are ripe for resurrection in Nintendo's 3D Classics line: recent release 3D Classics Xevious did a decent job, and next it's Konami's turn with a version of classic arcade shooter Twinbee. The revamped game takes flight to Japan on 10th August for 600 Yen, the same price as Xevious. Interestingly...

Three more classics

We've reached the start of a new month again, which means Nintendo of Japan has once again revealed its upcoming plans for the Wii Virtual Console. There are just three new games this August, with the Neo Geo still enjoying a good bit of a resurgence. All three games are pretty good, though there's no particular surprises this time.

The NES 'classic' which no one asked for in 3D!

While we wait for some original 3D games to arrive in the eShop, we’re more than happy to enjoy some classic NES remakes. 3D Classics Excitebike was warmly received, especially as it was a free download to coincide with the delayed eShop launch.

Four more for the Wii

The 3DS Virtual Console is only getting its titles revealed every week, but the Wii Virtual Console is still sticking with the tried and true method of revealing the entire next month's plans at the end of the previous month. There's not really any big surprises this time, though there is one small one in the form of G-mode finally bringing a certain classic Data East..
