WayForward Hopes To Release Wii U Version of Mighty Switch Force! 2 in October

Will be more than just a typical HD port

Last month, WayForward confirmed Mighty Switch Force! 2, the 3DS eShop title that emerged in June, will be coming to Wii U in the future. However, the developer did state it was a "backburner project" and considering it is pretty busy at the moment, what with the unveiling of the Kickstarter project for

Inazuma Eleven 3 Trailer Shoots For Craziness

When simply kicking a ball isn't enough

Last week we shared some quirky Inazuma Eleven 3 trailers, which aimed to show how football would work if it included just some of the crazy moves typical in the franchise. They were a bit of fun, but in the latest trailer released by Nintendo it's all about showing off what the title's all about, including...

Eiji Aonuma Advises Adventurers to Hoard Rupees in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

"It will be more important than ever"

One of the oddities of the Zelda franchise is its currency system — Link runs into strangers homes to loot their chests and smash their pots for money, and he can even accumulate wealth when chopping up grass in the wilds. We've tried cutting grass ourselves in the hopes that money will simply appear where the...

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes was announced for the Wii U and 3DS eShop platforms way back in April 2012, with the original target being to release the title on both systems that year. It's a project that's fallen largely silent, however, though publisher Nicalis has provided updates on...

If Inazuma Eleven Football Was Real, Costs Would be Astronomical

Footballs and pitches going up in flames

While the franchise is big business for Level-5 in Japan, Inazuma Eleven has had limited localisations in Europe and none in North America, earning loyal fans without necessarily troubling the upper-reaches of software charts. Europe will have its next dose of Inazuma Eleven goodness on 27th September, with...

It's undoubtedly ambitious in scope, promising a campaign that can be seamlessly interrupted by other players online, and the...

AiRace Speed Flying Onto the 3DS eShop Soon

A need for speed

Two DSiWare releases that we rather enjoyed were AiRace and AiRace Tunnel, and with that in mind we're certainly pleased to hear about AiRace Speed from QubicGames. Due on the 3DS eShop "late summer", which could mean in the next few weeks, this high-speed flying game will cost $4.99 in North America and €4.99 / £4.49 in Europe...

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Battles to North America This Week

European release set for 12th September

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara has been a frustrating release for some Nintendo eShop gamers. After arriving on rival platforms earlier in the summer, issues with the Wii U build caused a rather late notice delay and then multiple weeks of silence and, we imagine, failed submissions. Just over...

Devil Survivor 2 Hits Pre-Order Target to Confirm EU Release

Additional pre-orders are now guaranteed
