"who knows what the future brings"
Earlier this week, No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle got announced for the Nintendo Switch. Once word spread that Engine Software was behind the Switch ports - the same company that brought the cult-hit action-adventure Killer7 to the
"it is not in the works with Engine"
Update 2 (Mon 17th Aug, 2020 12:30 BST): We've spoken to Ruud van de Moosdijk (again) and he's made it clear a Switch version of Killer7 was "never" in development under Engine Software. Here's exactly what he had to say: It was never in development. When we started working with Suda-San on the PC version, it...
The Switch "exists in its own dimension"
Nintendo has been dominating software and hardware sales around the globe recently, but the real test is expected to be when Sony and Microsoft launch their own next generation of hardware. Both of these new systems are scheduled to arrive later this year, at some point during the holiday season. So, what...
In cooperation with Bandai Namco
When Bandai Namco officially confirmed Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was coming to the Switch later this year, it also revealed this version of the game would run at 30fps and maintain a 720p resolution in both docked and handheld mode. Adding to the existing information about this upcoming release, it's now...

It's now been confirmed the game will arrive next month on 6th November on other platforms. The Switch version won't be far behind however, the lovely folks over at Ronimo Games are aiming for the...
Feedback from our interview fired the starting gun
Gunslugs 2, developed by Orangepixel and ported / published on 3DS by Engine Software, is a fun and action-packed download title. Of course, no prizes are given for figuring out that it has a predecessor yet to arrive on 3DS - well, that's going to be fixed as Gunslugs is heading to the portable...
Another box ticked!
We've often written about the Wii U eShop offering an impressively diverse range of genres in its games, catering to fans of platformers, shoot 'em ups, puzzle games, more platformers... There have also been some trivia / quiz games, but none have been solely about dinosaurs. Well, that gap in the market will be filled by Dinox,...
Hitting the Americas, Europe and Oceania all at once

Check out some new 3DS screenshots, too
It can sometimes seem like the Wii U eShop is getting a lot of the Nindie love, but 3DS owners have a potentially exciting arrival around the corner. Gunslugs 2, originally developed by OrangePixel and being ported by Engine Software, is heading to the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe on 22nd October,...
"There's a lot of room for these "oldschool" arcade games on the eShop"
It can seem like the Wii U eShop gets the most attention in the 'Nindie' stakes, which is certainly the case. Nevertheless, there are still some highly promising downloads on the way to the 3DS, with plenty of life in the portable yet. One such example is Gunslugs 2, originally...
Shoot all of the things
It can seem like most new eShop game announcements are for the Wii U, which is certainly the case. Thankfully promising new download games for Nintendo's portable do come along occasionally, and Gunslugs 2 certainly fits the bill. It's being published by Engine Software, which is experienced in working on the 3DS, and was...
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...
Light at the end of the tunnel
It seems, in recent times, that the majority of intriguing and exciting new projects on the eShop platforms brings us to the Wii U, with the home console's power and development tool support attracting plenty of companies. The 3DS eShop does have excellent titles of its own, but the volume seems lower in terms of...

More detailed, but still quite retro
The folks over at Goodbye Galaxy Games were kind enough to send over the first batch of screenshots from their upcoming DSiWare sequel Flipper 2.

December could become noisier
Engine Software is clearly not happy with just providing karaoke games on the DSiWare service; no, it wants to provide the first retail karaoke game on the DS too. After last year's Just Sing! Christmas Songs, and the relatively-recent Just Sing! National Anthems, the Just SING! series is making its cartridge form debut...
We talk to producer Ty Roberts about PopCap's upcoming WiiWare debut
Though PopCap is no stranger to Nintendo platforms, having already released several retail and download games for the DS and DSiWare, Bejeweled 2 marks their first foray in the lounges of Wii owners. After a bit of hands-on time with the final release candidate, we thought we'd find out a little more about PopCap and what's it's..

Since some of these releases only came out Monday in North America we don't have reviews up for them all just yet, but bear with us, they're coming..
The Blue Bomber returns to North America, and he's bringing some high school drama, postcards, puzzles and more Game & Watch titles with him

Console tilt-sensitive without attachments
Satoru Iwata may say the DS's successor will be motion sensitive, but the team at Engine Software has beaten him to the punch, creating full motion sensitivity with no attachments needed. To demonstrate the technology in action, Engine Software has released a video of TILT, a prototype marble-rolling simulation. Check it out below. The developers are keen..

More from the press release we received: Doetinchem, May 18th 2009 - Engine Software, developer based in the Netherlands, today announces that its debut..
