Extended SteamWorld Heist Gameplay Trailer Shows Off Latest Build

Due from Fall onwards, including Wii U and 3DS

News: New Star Wars Rebels Table Announced For Star Wars Pinball

New Star Wars Rebels Table Announced For Star Wars Pinball

Hopefully, its release date isn’t far, far away

Zen Studios has had a historically spotty release schedule when it comes to its pinball tables on the Wii U. In both Zen Pinball 2 and Star Wars Pinball, tables and packs can usually be expected to arrive either later than all other platforms or not at all. Unfortunately, today’s announcement...

Splatoon Development Updates Show Off Neat Threads, Guns, Videos and, erm, Paper

Also, Octobombers look ridiculous but sublime

There's been a bit of buzz around Splatoon since our last gallery summary earlier in March, and we were fortunate enough to attend some press events to play more of the upcoming Wii U shooter. We previewed the multiplayer and single player modes and also shared a belief that Splatoon is to shooters what...

Wii U eShop Exclusive psyscrolr Heading to North America on 2nd April

Looks dramatic

News: Crunchyroll Pre-Order Bundle for Etrian Mystery Dungeon Includes Extra Goodies

Crunchyroll Pre-Order Bundle for Etrian Mystery Dungeon Includes Extra Goodies

A lot of nice things

When it comes to pre-order and 'first run' extras, Atlus seem to be top of class on the 3DS. For the standard retail price you typically get a nice art book, a CD, or perhaps even both; all as a reward for being an early adopter. That's also the case with the upcoming Etrian Mystery Dungeon release in North America, but the...

News: Two Tribes’ Toki Tori Remake is Coming to the 3DS eShop

Two Tribes’ Toki Tori Remake is Coming to the 3DS eShop

How eggsciting

A brief history on the development of Toki Tori. Toki Tori was a puzzle platformer originally launched on the Game Boy Color back in 2002 as a pseudo-remake of an MSX title called Eggbert, but it didn’t sell too well due to being released late in the console’s life. In 2008, Toki Tori was ported to Wiiware and was one of the first...

Monster Tale on Its Way to the 3DS eShop in a New 'Ultimate' Version

Improved visuals, gameplay tweaks, stereoscopic 3D

It's easy to forget that, in the DS days, there was a market for a number of 'mid-tier' games at retail - not quite triple-A hits, and not overtly casual sims or brain training games, but enjoyable games nevertheless that were well worth checking out. Monster Tale certainly counts as one of these,...

News: Azure Striker Gunvolt Release Details for Europe Due Next Week, Prompts Nintendo Direct Chatter

Azure Striker Gunvolt Release Details for Europe Due Next Week, Prompts Nintendo Direct Chatter

Why not, it's Friday!

Azure Striker Gunvolt is taking its sweet time coming to Europe, but that's somewhat understandable with Inti Creates publishing itself and not necessarily having experience of the region's ratings and localisation requirements. As one of the best action games on the 3DS eShop since its arrival in Japan and North America,...

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Looks Set For Wii U on 2nd April

Was originally due back in the past

It's been quite a wait for Nintendo fans of the YouTube trailblazer AVGN, with Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures arriving on PC in 2014 and pegged as being due "very soon" last July. Set for Wii U and 3DS, it will at least apparently utilise the second screen options on both systems. The Wii U version seems to...

News: Tachyon Project Blasting to Wii U for Some Twin-Stick Shooting Action

Tachyon Project Blasting to Wii U for Some Twin-Stick Shooting Action

Shoot all of the things

Considering humanity's fondness for destruction, it's surprising that we're not bombarded with more space-based twin-stick shooters on the Wii U. It can be satisfying to destroy alien things with an explosion of pixels and particle effects, yet we're not given enough opportunities to do so. Eclipse Games, which previously...
