  1. Well this came out of nowhere. It's a remake of Fire Emblem: Gaiden on the NES but now for the 3DS! It has dungeons and villages like a normal RPG but with the tactical battles of your usual Fire Emblem games and it looks pretty cool, if not quite as polished as the last FE 3DS games (no Yosuke Kozaki character designs either.) HERE IS TRAILER! EXCITEMENT! NoA have it down for a US launch on May the 19th. No news of an EU release just yet. HOLD IT! Nintendo UK release is also May 19th!
  2. Voting is closed as at 00:00 27-02-2017 - any changes or additions to votes from now will not be counted. It's that time of year again! A little bit earlier than usual, as I realised I won't be free at the end of February, and I still want to give you all a whole month to vote. This year's awards are going to be slighter than previous ones - which will be good news for those of you who don't enjoy my sparkling wit, or those who don't enjoy their awards ceremonies ending halfway through the year - as I have a fair amount of stuff going on in my life at the moment and so am reducing my time spent on fun things like this. Also, I played fewer games from 2016 than from previous years (limiting myself to four purchases in the year certainly helped there), so I'd have less to say anyway. What this effectively means is that this year will have: fewer categories to vote for fewer 'highlights' in the results thread - by and large the games outside of top 20s will just be listed, with maybe the occasional exceptional game that I want to flag up fewer criticisms in the results thread - my limited purchasing last year meant I largely avoided games I didn't anticipate enjoying, and I'm not in the habit of criticising games I've not played So, please temper/raise your expectations as appropriate. The rules: one forumite, one vote. If you vote twice I will invalidate your results. If you need to amend your votes during the voting period, edit your original post! vote for your preferences, not to meet critical consensus: it doesn't matter if you don't think your favourite game of the year was the best game of the year - if it's your favourite, it's your favourite, and you should put in in top place only games released in 2016 are eligible. You may include games that were previously released in a different territory or for a different system major expansions and remakes are also eligible episodic and early access games can be voted for if they either initially launched or finished within 2016 you don't have to vote in all categories, and you don't have to fill all categories - if you only think six games are worthy of entry into the game of the year list, only vote for six games! voting closes at the end of 26 February; that is to say 00:00 on 27 February. Any submissions or edits made after that point will not be considered towards the results comments are allowed, and indeed encouraged: just please put them in speech marks on the line below the vote you're commenting on, so that it's easy for me to separate them from the actual votes! Please use the voting template below when submitting your results Voting template: Game of the Year 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. Soundtrack of the Year S1.

  3. Not sure if this is more appropriate in the retro folder but as its a collection getting released for current gen machines I'd thought I'd stick it here.
  4. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/04/new_nintendo_2ds_xl_announced_releases_28th_july Nice for newcomers and those that don't care for 3D, and its nice that they've learned from design flaws of prior models (micro sd easily accessable and even a cover this time!) but ultimately to me it's still an inferior product. Slimmer New 3DS XL and I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Glad to see another proper handheld, gives hope a next gen one is still coming along the way. You know, ones that are kid friendly and can put in your pocket.
  5. IMPORTANT! Before you read the rest of this post, take a moment to imagine all the best things in the world, a blend of all the stuff you would really like to see in a video game. Have you got some pictures in your head now? Okay, read on and see every awesome thing come true! jasonschreier: If you've ever wanted a 3DS steampunk Valkyria Chronicles where Abraham Lincoln commands you to fight aliens, boy is tonight your night https://twitter.com/...898868538257408 Turn based strategy with action elements from Intelligent Systems! It's like Valkyria Chronicles! :omg: Steampunk setting with a style inspired by Jack Kirby! Steam is used for Action Points! No grinding to win! Upgrade your abilities and build a balanced team to defeat the aliens! LOVECRAFT INSPIRED ALIEN DESIGNS! DeKay will need to add another category on the end of his scale of superlatives for this one. More stuff when I get up in the morning probably. SCREENIES VIDYAS
  6. Stream | Youtube | Archive ABOUT What to Expect? more at NintendoLife Might as well have a separate thread for it am I right? I'm hoping they're able to make ARMS look more enticing by showing more characters and modes as I'm not sure the Nintendo Tax™ is justified at the moment. They could at least double the roster and make Dhalsim a pre-order bonus (insta buy).
  7. The trouble with Nintendo Here's some thoughts I've had about what's wrong with Nintendo. 1) Cheapskates. Spend some money. Open more studios. Hire some new talent. Maybe set up a few studios in the West. I don't know why this isn't happening. Nintendo have a great selection of IP. Titles like Zelda, Metroid and Mario, Mario Kart, Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, New Super Mario Bros, Starfox and of course Pokemon seem to do pretty well for them. These titles offer lots of different playing opportunities and conceivably mean Nintendo could offer something for everyone. A lot of these games are so well established everyone knows what's going to happen before they play the game. Zelda? Hookshot now is it, oh no, my mistake, I'm getting the Boomerang now. I liked learning the spin attack again. No wait, it's a completely different game because in this one you ride about on a rhino instead of a horse. Nintendo need not expend it's magic on these titles. Get them farmed out (like the GBC Capcom Zeldas or Namco's GC F-Zero) or hire more developers to make these games. They're guaranteed moneyspinners, and the formula is so well defined that it doesn't make sense to waste valuable talent on developing them. Instead, they should use their development superstar(s) to come up with new ideas and have them realised in exciting new pieces of software. The Legends are always coming. Get the games made and on the shelves! Nintendo have got so much IP that if they wanted to, they could release a fan favourite title every month for years. WiiU would have been THE console to have. Who could resist a launch with Mario, Metroid, Zelda and Mario Kart? Why don't they do it? Because they haven't got enough staff to make the games? They don't want to crowd out 3rd parties? Enjoy your big franchise title in 2 years time - the title that you bought a console on the strength of. The Legends Are Coming! What are Nintendo doing? Where are the games? Why do they take so long to release them? People would buy two Metroids, two Zeldas two whatever else's over the course of a console's life. As is, you get neither, loyal purchaser. Not for years. The legends ARE coming. Get third parties making your games and you're not choking them out either. As an aside, when did Nintendo stop development of games for Wii? It's not like they worked on Wii software until the WiiU was released was it? What are they doing? What have they been doing? Making top notch experiences like MiiVerse? 2) Cheapskates. Why don't Nintendo make hardware that represents an advancement of the form? With the 3DS it's not so bad, but with the WiiU they've shot themselves in the foot in a big way. Got an Exclusive WiiU title coming, Ubisoft? Seen those Sales figures? They're terrible, aren't they? Fortunately for you, Nintendo created a console that's about as powerful as the ones that came out 7 years ago so you'll be able to port it across to the other consoles without too much bother. Nintendo have got the resistive screened beauty into people's hands, and they've done it a year before the next round of hardware releases occur. A full year to build up a massive userbase. No games. No Games. Why? Because they're being held back to simultaneously release on PS360, 3 months before those consoles have successors on the shelves. What about first party games though? No games. No Games. Why? Too slow to make them, not enough developers. Well, with this old tech the system must be nice and cheap, right? NO! They've packaged every single one with a controller that costs more than any other, not communicated why the controller is amazing and now nobody wants to pay extra for something that looks the same as the much better supported systems elsewhere in your favourite retailer's shop. 3) Cheapskates Let's invest in new IP. They'd have to hire more developers, OBVS (not allowed - $$$) but assume that they have new people onboard. Here's a Nintendo press conference: Miyamoto strolls out and says I am pleased to announce these brilliant new minds that I have been working with. They have brilliant games for you, I have been overseeing their ideas and I love them. They get the Miyamoto Seal Of Approval and their games will be out before the PS4 is on shelves. PANDEMONIUM. Miyamoto says these games are amazing?!!? Who knows games better than he?! I cannot wait. What does Miyamoto do now? Is he fully onboard with many games? How long until he retires? Nintendo need to get their eggs out of that basket and start promoting for the future. Imagine a release schedule like this: January: Metroid February: New Miyamoto approved IP March: Mario April: Zelda May: StarFox June: Smash Bros July: New Miyamoto IP August: Mario Tennis September: Rayman Legends (An authentic third party title, just for fun!) October: Pikmin November: F-zero December: Pokemon Hue of Choice Bit Better than January: Relax, post Christmas February: Rayman (Delayed) March: Cancelled. April: Port of last year's PS360 hit with controller gimmick tacked on. And so on, Isn't it? Not possible? Why? Get the games made and out on shelves. Hey, Capcom, fancy making some money? Knock us up a Starfox will you? People want to buy it. 4) Cheapskates Why is everything always cheap with them? Tiny battery when there's room for a big one. I've got to charge it up every ten minutes now. Oh, I can't be bothered. Why's the web browser on 3DS so bad? Like worse than a £100 smartphone bad. Why's the screen always so bad on Nintendo stuff? Like worse than on a £100 smartphone bad. Why does their hardware match last gen's specs? Why do purchases/downloads take forever in the E-shop? How much money did you save on that battery, the slow processor and the crappy screen? Was it worth making a product that irritates? Why bother putting a web browser in 3DS if it's that bad? Just don't do it. 5) Tight arses How old's this game now? 25 years. How many times have people bought it now? About 5 times each. Hmm. How much shall we sell it on the E-Shop for? £12? Hmm. Let's go for £13.99. Nintendo sell everything from their back catalogue at it'd be rude to prices. Who wants this stuff enough to pay real money for them? As in, in significant numbers? Do I want to buy their system when I know I'm going to be paying top price for everything all the time? I'm not so keen. Will I get to keep those purchases? No, the account doesn't transfer and they want to charge me again later. I think Nintendo need to invest in their future. Refusing to do so has screwed over the WiiU, the people who've bought it and the developers who've started work on games for the platform. If they want to ignore the rest of the world I don't know why they don't do it properly, they could go completely self sustaining and only have Nintendo games on their platforms. And that's some of what I think about Nintendo. EDIT: Neg away, don't read - just neg, Nintendo fans.
  8. So the latest addition to the immensily popular Animal Crossing franchise is this; Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. An upcoming community simulation videogame developed and published by Nintendo, and due Q3 2015 for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is a spin-off of the Animal Crossing series where the player has to design homes for the various anthropomorphic animal characters. Central to the game's concept is the ability to completely design the villagers' homes. The game was also confirmed to be the first to support amiibo in card format, to be released along the game. The Amiibo Cards are obviously more portable for on-the-go play, and the new Nintendo 3DS comes with built-in Amiibo functionality. Other forms of 3DS (i.e. the original 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS) will require a separate NFC reader/writer accessory that will launch the same time as Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. And with over 300 characters, that's going to be a lots of cards...

Now Mercenaries Saga 3: Gray Wolves of War has landed with another dramatic plot of war, power and danger - we'll check it out in a review. Shift DX (Choice Provisions, €4.99 / £4.00) - This series, known for its key concept of being able to "shift" the playing field to a different angle and therefore tackle puzzles in an interesting way, has spawned many sequels across PC and IOS. This iteration includes all the levels from the first two games and 100 more stages besides, so there'll be plenty to tackle; we'll get stuck in for a review. 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts SEVERED (Drinkbox Studios, €10.49 / £8.39 until 26th January, normally €14.99 / £11.99) OlliOlli (Curve Digital, €1.99 / £1.59 until 19th January, normally €9.99 / £7.99) Titan Attacks!

  10. Good week for discounts, and of course Shantae (which is TOMORROW!). Just as well as there's not a lot else! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (WayForward, €16.99 / £15.99) - WayForward's best-known franchise makes the leap to HD for the first time (outside of re-releases); originally funded on Kickstarter, it's been a long wait for this adventure. A chance to introduce Shantae and company to a new audience, we can expect this one to stick to the core formula as new players get used to hair whipping and transformations brought on by dancing. We'll whip out a review once we've had a chance to get through the full adventure. Available from 20th December. Back to Bed (Bedtime Digital, €9.99 / £8.99) - A title previously released on smart devices and PSN (including PS4 and Vita), this is a puzzle game with an isometric camera view. The goal is to guide your sleeping protagonists safely through a variety of areas, no doubt encountering some interesting obstacles in his dream state. RADIANTFLUX: HYPERFRACTAL (TACS Games, €2.99 / £2.99) - An intriguing looking title with a plot centred around hacking; in execution it looks like a blend of hacker simulation combined with minigames. For example there appear to be aspects of shoot 'em up play, through to minesweeper, through to some play similar to the original DOOM. We'll give this one a try and let you know what we think. Zombie Brigade: No Brain No Gain (Cypronia, €4.99 / £4.49 or free until 25th December for those that own Cube Life: Island Survival) - This is a runner that makes heavy use of memes (or things claiming to be memes) for comedic effect. That should give you an idea of whether this appeals to you on any level. Wii U DLC Minecraft: Wii U Edition - 1st Birthday Skin Pack (Mojang, free until 5th January) Minecraft: Wii U Edition - Fallout Mash-up (Mojang, €5.99 / £4.79) Minecraft: Wii U Edition - Doctor Who Skins I & II Bundle (Mojang, €5.99 / £4.79) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Mario Kart 8: Pack 1: The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo, €6.00 / £5.25 until 5th January, normally €8.00 / £7.00) Mario Kart 8: Pack 2: Animal Crossing x Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo, €6.00 / £5.25 until 5th January, normally €8.00 / £7.00) Mario Kart 8 Bundle: Pack 1 and 2 (Nintendo, €9.00 / £8.25 until 5th January, normally €12.00 / £11.00) LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (WB Games, €24.99 / £19.99 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £39.99) LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (WB Games, €24.99 / £22.49 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £44.99) LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (WB Games, €24.99 / £22.49 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £44.99) The LEGO Movie Video Game (WB Games, €19.99 / £17.49 until 5th January, normally €39.99 / £34.99) LEGO The Hobbit (WB Games, €24.99 / £19.99 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £39.99) LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (WB Games, €24.99 / £19.99 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £39.99) LEGO Jurassic World (WB Games, €24.99 / £17.49 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £34.99) LEGO Marvel's Avengers (WB Games, €24.99 / £19.99 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £39.99) DuckTales: Remastered (Capcom, €5.99 / £4.79 until 5th January, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (Capcom, €4.90 / £3.95 until 5th January, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 5th January, normally €49.99 / £39.99) FAST Racing NEO (Shin'en Multimedia, €9.99 / £7.33 until 12th January, normally €14.99 / £10.99) SteamWorld Dig (Image & Form, €1.79 / £1.39 until 4th January, normally €8.99 / £6.99) SteamWorld Heist (Image & Form, €9.99 / £7.49 until 4th January, normally €19.99 / £14.99) Runbow (13AM Games, €6.99 / £5.49 until 5th January, normally €13.99 / £10.99) Pirate Pop Plus (13AM Games, €2.24 / £2.04 until 5th January, normally €4.49 / £4.09) Blek (Broken Rules, €2.74 / £2.24 until 5th January, normally €5.49 / £4.49) Chasing Aurora (Broken Rules, €3.49 / £2.99 until 5th January, normally €6.99 / £5.99) Electronic Super Joy (Broken Rules, €3.99 / £3.49 until 5th January, normally €7.99 / £6.99 Teslagrad (Rain Games, €4.49 / £4.19 until 5th January, normally €14.99 / £13.99) Gravity Badgers (Wales Interactive, €0.99 / £0.99 until 26th January, normally €4.99 / £4.99) Infinity Runner (Wales Interactive, €2.59 / £2.35 until 26th January, normally €6.49 / £5.89) Master Reboot (Wales Interactive, €4.79 / £3.99 until 26th January, normally €11.99 / £9.99) Swords & Soldiers II (Ronimo Games, €9.49 / £8.49 until 5th January, normally €18.99 / £16.99) Tengami (Nyamyam, €3.99 / £3.49 until 5th January, normally €7.99 / £6.99) Poncho (Rising Star Games, €4.49 / £3.99 until 5th January, normally €8.99 / £7.99) Race the Sun (Flippfly, €2.99 / £2.09 until 5th January, normally €9.99 / £6.99) Bombing Bastards (Sanuk Games, €3.49 / £2.99 until 5th January, normally €6.99 / £5.99) Spot the Differences!

This one has over 300 puzzles to tackle, including 'Mega' size options, while a new feature is the ability to mark squares of interest without being penalised. We'll look at the full picture in a review. Geki Yaba Runner Deluxe (QubicGames, €4.99 / £4.49) - In a sense a follow up to 2 Fast 4 Gnomz, this sees those gnomes transform in order to tackle over 100 new levels; the developer states that these fast paced platforming challenges are among the most challenges players will face. Challenge accepted? Touch Battle Tank - Tag Combat (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.99) - A 3D tank battle game, and not the first in this series, and this time it introduces local multiplayer and a whole lot of new stages. New tank types include 'warping' ones, and 90 stages are promised. SKYPEACE (Sonic Powered Co., €0.99 / £0.89) — This is a simple endless runner / flying sidescroller, which arrived in North America back in 2014; it's simple if unremarkable fun, as we explain in our SkyPeace review. Japanese Rail Sim 3D Monorail Trip to Okinawa (Sonic Powered Co. Ltd, €14.99 / £12.99) - The latest in an established series, this time opting for a monorail rather than conventional rails.

  11. http://www.famitsu.c...1/29009127.html http://news.dengeki....000/452/452047/ Yes, yes, YESSSSSSSSSSSS. After the brilliance that was the original trilogy and the wonderfull fourth entry, this has made my day at the very least. No platform has been announced yet but considering the games have been released exclusively for the DS GBA, DS and iOS in the past, the 3DS/iOS devices are a pretty good guess to make. Also confirmed from Capcom are HD remakes for the iOS devices
  12. Lots on sale, slim pickings for good stuff though. Still, Minecraft Story Mode! For ALMOST THIRTY QUID?! HAHAHahahahahahahhafuckno. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Teslapunk (klutzGames, €9.99 / £8.99) - This has the look of an old-school vertical shoot 'em up, as you fight off an invasion from Mars "led by Emperor Zangórax, who back on Mars is a popular DJ by night and a frantic invader by day". Fair enough. It looks rather promising, and beyond a six stage campaign it has a survival mode; we'll blast away for a review. Scribble (Bear Box Media, €2.99 / £2.99) - This takes the core aspect of the equivalent Pictionary-based minigame in U Host and expands it across multiple modes. There are five modes and over 1500 words from 17 categories, with the option to also create your own words and contests; potentially ideal for the festive season. Breakout Defense (nuGAME, €7.00 / £7.00) - Based off the classic Breakout formula, this one seems focused on two paddles competing against each other, as you take on the AI or a friend locally. That seems to be the overall selling point here. Test Your Mind (XenoHorizon, €1.99 / £1.99) - As the name suggests this is a compilation of puzzles and minigames to put your brain to the test, and naturally it supports two player action for some couch multiplayer. Ultimately we were rather unimpressed in our Test Your Mind review. Wii U Virtual Console Pikmin 2 (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - This is the 'New Play Control' Wii version, utilising the Wii Remote's pointer capabilities. This release does now mean that the entire trilogy is available and playable on Wii U, which is a rather pleasing thing - we enjoyed this Wii version a lot in our original review. Wii U Retail Download Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure (Telltale Games, €34.99 / £28.99) - The chapters for this eventually made their way to the eShop in North America, though Europeans missed out; now the 'complete' adventure is arriving as a retail release in the region. Available from 16th December.

It also has a level creator with QR code distribution; it got a big 'meh, it's alright' from us in our Johnny Dynamite review. The following are a series of small games released as inexpensive downloads, seemingly targeting a young audience. Kutar is a mascot that's "not a dog, cat or bear", with each short 'quest' supposed to be easy to play for young gamers: Kutar Apple (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Burger Factory (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Concert Staff (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar End Credits (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Jump Rope (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Magic Ball (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Powder Factory (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Quiz (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Ski Lift (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Kutar Tube Rider (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Demon's Crest (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19) - Firebrand the Gargoyle features here, and needs to recover elemental stones before his enemy, Phalanx. It's dramatic stuff, and this SNES action platformer also gives you freedom in stage order along with some ability to explore. We liked it a lot in our review. 3DS DLC Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Lore 1: Parellel Universes (Deep Silver, free) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Lore 2: Observation Explained (Deep Silver, free) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Extra Difficulty Levels (Deep Silver, free) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - The Inverted Pyramid (Deep Silver, €1.99 / £1.49) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - A Godslayer Needs Jewels (Deep Silver, €2.99 / £1.99) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - A Trip to Hawaii (Deep Silver, €2.49 / £1.79) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Explosive Epidemic in Mikado (Deep Silver, €1.99 / £1.49) 7th Dragon III Code: VFD Quest: Code: Lucifer!

  13. HahahaHAHAHAHahahah no. Well, some reasonable Sonic 3DS discounts, but that's it. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Frag doch mal...die Maus! (ASHGAMES, €9.99) - Only given a Euro price and likely targeted at Germany, obviously, this is based on a popular kids TV show in the country. A quiz game that was well received on PC in 2008(!), now it's on Wii U. That's nice. SHOOT THE BALL (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - Previously released on the New 3DS eShop; you use the touch screen to 'shoot' the ball into space, with randomised shapes and colours that set the difficulty level. Wii U Virtual Console Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - While the original GameCube version of this platformer utilised the famous bongo accessories, this Wii iteration introduced analogue control for movement, with occasional motion controls using the Remote and Nunchuk. We were big fans of this Wii version in our original review, and it's worth noting that the GameCube original was the debut project by Nintendo EAD Tokyo 'Group No. 1' - that team's second game was the outstanding Super Mario Galaxy. Sonic 25th Anniversary Sales - Wii U eShop Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (SEGA, €24.99 / £19.99 until 8th December, normally €49.99 / £39.99) Sonic Lost World (SEGA, €24.99 / £19.99 until 8th December, normally €49.99 / £39.99) Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (SEGA, €19.99 / £15.99 until 8th December, normally €49.99 / £39.99) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Art of Balance (Shin'en Multimedia, €6.74 / £5.36 until 22nd December, normally €8.99 / £7.15) Word Puzzles by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €7.19 / £6.39 until 8th December, normally €8.99 / £7.99) Dragon Skills (Joindots, €5.59 / £4.75 until 15th December, normally €7.99 / £6.79) Sweetest Thing (Joindots, €4.89 / £3.84 until 15th December, normally €6.99 / £5.49) 3DS Retail Downloads Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - Only announced in September, this port of the excellent Wii U title takes away online sharing but introduces a new Mario Challenge mode and some portable benefits. Our review will be with you ahead of release, but until then you can check out our preview. Available from 2nd December. Picross 3D: Round 2 (Nintendo, €34.99 / £29.99 WHAT THE FUCK) - Europe has had to wait longer for this one, but has the added bonus of a physical retail option; this follow-up to the popular DS title arrived as a surprise in North America in early September. With colourful visuals, clever puzzles and amiibo support, we were full of praise for this one in our Picross 3D: Round 2 review. Available from 2nd December. Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (Deep Silver, €39.99 / £34.99) - This long awaited title offers a different spin from its predecessor, with a new protagonist and some gameplay tweaks. As is standard for the series it's a high quality, atmospheric and engrossing RPG; you can check out a detailed assessment in our Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse review. 7th Dragon III Code: VFD (Deep Silver, €39.99 / £34.99) - The 3DS is graced with a lot of top-class RPG experiences, and this is another for the list. This particular series is established in Japan but is trying to seize momentum in the West, and offers its own twists on genre norms. You can learn all about what this one has to offer in our extensive 7th Dragon III Code: VFD review. My Nintendo 3DS Launch Discounts Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - 50 Gold Points for discounted price of €35.99 / £31.49, otherwise €39.99 / £34.99. 7th Dragon III Code: VFD - 50 Gold Points for discounted price of €35.99 / £31.49, otherwise €39.99 / £34.99. New Nintendo 3DS eShop Hyperlight EX (CatfishBlues Games, €5.49 / £4.99) - Previously on smart devices, this is a colourful and high-tempo shoot 'em up, making it a relatively rare arrival in the genre on 3DS. It has multiple modes, control options and includes stereoscopic 3D, so we'll see whether it lives up to its potential in a review. CUP CRITTERS (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - This entry is all about managing gravity and manipulating balls into cups, with setting a high score being the main aim. 3DS eShop Mercenaries Saga 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €4.99) - Released earlier this year in Europe, this has been re-listed courtesy of a release in some additional mainland Europe territories. 3DS DLC Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Earring Set (Deep Silver, free until 8th December, normally €0.99 / £0.79) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Fall of Tokyo Promo Video (Deep Silver, free) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - A Godslayer Needs Levels (Deep Silver, €2.99 / £1.99) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Ranking Program 1 (Deep Silver, free) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Asahi/Nozomi Set (Deep Silver, €0.99 / £0.79) Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse - Green Pompadour (Deep Silver, €0.99 / £0.79) 7th Dragon III Code: VFD Bonus Item: Nagamimi Doll (Deep Silver, free) 7th Dragon III Code: VFD Quest: Seed Outbreak! (Deep Silver, free until 8th December, normally €1.49 / £0.99) 7th Dragon III Code: VFD Quest: Gold Rabi Outbreak!

  14. Ignoring Pokemon, which is a retail release so doesn't really count, it's another shite week. Ah well, Switch'll be here soon enough. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Exile's End (XSEED Games, €9.99 / £8.99) - Here's one for those with retro sensibilities; billed as a "cinematic platformer" with Japanese flair, this takes place on "a massive, interconnected laboratory and mining complex on a moody, lonely alien world", and expects the player to solve puzzles and overcome issues using a combination of weapons and other items. It has retro-style visuals and features music from composers prominent in the 8- and 16-bit eras; we'll bring you a review soon. Ohayou! Beginner's Japanese (Finger Gun Games, €4.99 / £4.49) - This app aims to help users gain the building blocks for learning the language. The basic premise is that you use flash cards to learn and master Hiragana and Katakana characters, before tackling lessons to prove what you've learned. We'll try it out and then bring you a review. Octocopter: Super Sub Squid Escape (TACS Games, €2.99 / £2.69) - In this game you move your constantly spinning submarine through maze-like stages, with careful timing and patience important for success. Wii U Virtual Console Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - This Wii entry in the series threw in some new minigames, though also replicated some content from previous games. That makes this one a bit of a toss-up as Rhythm Heaven Megamix is available on 3DS and is jam-packed with old and new minigames. Nevertheless, despite some flaws we enjoyed this Wii entry in our original review, so it's not to be easily dismissed. Wii U eShop Demo 3Souls (Red Column, free) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Oddworld New 'n' Tasty (Oddworld Inhabitants, €9.99 / £7.49 until 4th December, normally €19.99 / £14.99) Terraria (505 Games, €14,99 / £13.49 until 8th December, normally €19,99 / £17.99) Mighty No. 9 (Deep Silver, €9.99 / £8.99 until 8th December, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Mighty No. 9 Ray Expansion (Deep Silver, €2.49 / £2.24 until 8th December, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Mighty No. 9 Retro Hero DLC (Deep Silver, €1.49 / £1.19 until 8th December, normally €2.99 / £2.39) Secret Files: Tunguska (Deep Silver, €4.99 / £4.49 until 8th December, normally €9.99 / £8.99) 99Seconds (EnjoyUp Games, €1.24 / £1.14 until 22nd December, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Darts Up (EnjoyUp Games, €1.24 / £1.14 until 22nd December, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Rock 'N Racing Off Road (EnjoyUp Games, €2.99 / £2.69 until 22nd December, normally €5.99 / £5.39) VRog (ByteRockers' Games, €4.49 / £4.04 until 15th December, normally €4.99 / £4.49) SDK Paint (Hullbreach Studios, €3.75 / £3.37 until 8th December, normally €5.00 / £4.50) SDK Spriter (Hullbreach Studios, €9.37 / £7.87 until 8th December, normally €12.50 / £10.50) Wii U eShop Permanent Discount U Host (Bear Box Media, €4.99 / £4.99, previously €9.99 / £8.99) 3DS Retail Download Pokémon Sun and Moon (Nintendo, €44.99 / £39.99) - It's finally time, as the Pokémon series kicks off an all-new generation on the 3DS. These entries deliver some hugely significant changes to the franchise, from adjustments to story progression to new features that'll freshen up the competitive scene. We gave this a storming recommendation in our Pokémon Sun and Moon review. Available from 23rd November. Animal Crossing: New Leaf Welcome amiibo (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - The formal retail release of the updated edition of this evergreen title, remember that an update to include all of this Welcome amiibo content is already free for those that own the game. Available from 25th November. 3DS eShop Demo Picross 3D: Round 2 (Nintendo, free) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Terraria (505 Games, €14.99 / £12.74 until 8th December, normally €19.99 / £16.99) Epic Word Search Collection (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 1st December, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Epic Word Search Collection 2 (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 1st December, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Snow Moto Racing 3D (ZordixAB, €5.99 / £5.39 until 1st December, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Fantasy Pirates (EnjoyUp Games, €0.85 / £0.85 until 22nd December, normally €4.50 / £4.50) Football Up Online (EnjoyUp Games, €2.99 / £2.69 until 22nd December, normally €3.99 / £3.59) RV-7 My Drone (EnjoyUp Games, €0.89 / £0.89 until 22nd December, normally €2.99 / £2.99) Toys Vs.

  15. Nope. Nothing of worth. I'm not even going to bother.
  16. pelago

    Swapdoodle

    I notice Nintendo have just released Swapdoodle on 3DS, a replacement for the long defunct Swapnote/Nintendo Letter Box app. As far as I can tell, they've removed the ability to attach photos and voice recordings to notes. I don't know why it took them three years to do that, if that was the problem that caused Swapnote to be suspended in the first place!
  17. No decent new games. No decent discounts. Load of old shite. Possibly the worst week ever, so just go and buy that Sega 3D Classics from Argos instead. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Elliot Quest (PlayEveryWare, €11.69 / £8.54 untl 24th November, normally €12.99 / £9.49) Olympia Rising (PlayEveryWare, €4.49 / £4.04 until 24th November, normally €4.99 / £4.49) PixelMaker (Nostatic Software, €2.90 / £2.49 until 17th November, normally €3.49 / £2.99) Word Party (Lightwood Games, €7.99 / £7.49 until 17th November, normally €15.99 / £14.99) Baila Latino (O2 Games, €11.96 / £9.96 until 8th December, normally €29.90 / £24.90) Fit Music for Wii U (O2 Games, €11.96 / £9.96 until 8th December, normally €29.90 / £24.90) Luv Me Buddies Wonderland (O2 Games, €11.96 / £9.96 until 8th December, normally €29.90 / £24.90) STEEL LORDS (nuGAME, €7.49 / £5.49 until 8th December, normally €14.99 / £10.99) Wii U eShop Permanent Discount Space Hulk (Hoplite Research, €19.95 / £19.99, previously € 29.95 / £24.99) 3DS eShop SHOOT THE BALL (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - Previous releases by this studio for Nintendo's portable have been exclusive to the 'New' models, though the press release doesn't say that's the case here. You use the touch screen to 'shoot' the ball into space, with randomised shapes and colours that set the difficulty level. 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Dementium Remastered (Renegade Kid, €7.49 / £6.74 until 17th November, normally €14.99 / £13.49) Dan McFox: Head Hunter (Lightwood Games, €1.99 / £1.59 until 24th November, normally €2.49 / £1.99) Luv Me Buddies Wonderland (O2 Games, €9.96 / £7.96 until 8th December, normally €24.90 / £19.90) No, that's really it. Wow, eh?
  18. THREE DEE! THREEEEEE DEEEEE! Finally! Although we've had some of them already. Also! F-Zero X and HYRULE WARRIORS!!!!! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Twisted Fusion (Leuvsion, €5.00 / £4.00) - This Wii U-exclusive adventure / platformer has been long in the making, having been successfully funded on Kickstarter back in Spring 2014. It utilises the GamePad for a second display for those that want it (but also supports single-screen gaming), and offers a fair bit of freedom in approach, with added extras like monster breeding also included. Keep an eye out for our interview with the developer before the game launches, and we'll also get working on a review. Gravity+ (Nitrolic Games, €6.49 / £5.89) - A puzzle game 'suitable for all ages', you guide a robot through over 20 stages while manipulating gravity to avoid traps and obstacles; it also includes challenges and online leaderboards. Pinball Breakout (nuGAME, €7.00 / £6.00) - As the name suggests this one combines block-breaking gameplay with pinball mechanics, throwing in a multiplayer mode for good measure. Wii U Virtual Console F-Zero X (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - It seems slightly surprising that this one has evaded the current-gen Virtual Console up to now, but that's the case. It's a welcome addition now, with exciting speed, some memorable track designs and all-round fun racing to be found. You can check out our retro Wii Virtual Console F-Zero X review if you want a blast from the past; there's no mention of this being the US version in the press release, we should add, so we may have the slower 50Hz iteration. Wii U DLC Hyrule Warriors: A Link Between Worlds Pack (Nintendo, included with season pass, €4.99 / £4.49 Wii U only or €8.99 / £8.09 with 3DS version) Gravity+ Level Editor (Nitrolic Games, €3.99 / £3.59) Wii U eShop Temporary Discount Gear Gauntlet (Crystalline Green, €4.99 / £3.99 until 10th November, normally €9.99 / £7.99) Frankenstein - Master of Death (Joindots, €6.39 / £4.79 until 17th November, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Joe's Diner (Joindots, €6.39 / £4.79 until 17th November, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Suspension Railroad Simulator (Joindots, €6.39 / £4.79 until 17th November, normally €7.99 / £5.99) 360 Breakout (nuGAME, €5.00 / £4.50 until 30th November, normally €7.00 / £6.00) 3DS eShop Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers (GameMill Entertainment, €29.99 / £19.99) - A retail title only arriving as a download on 3DS in Europe, this is a multi-platform side-scrolling brawler that mashes up a range of popular IPs, including characters like Finn, Mordecai and Clarence. Collide-a-Ball (Starsign, €1.99 / £1.99) - Essentially a puzzle game that adopts a 3D isometric view, you need to manipulate ramps, blocks and more before setting balls loose; the goal is to have both reach the level-end flag at the same time. Ice Station Z (Wobbly Tooth, €2.99 / £2.99) - A survival game set in the arctic, this surprisingly budget-price game seems ambitious in concept, as it sets you the task of scavenging and surviving in a dangerous location. It seems interesting, and we'll be sure to check it out in a review. Unlucky Mage (KEMCO, €9.99 / £8.99) - Based upon the description of this one, which features kingdoms in conflict and a mysterious loner who can save the world, and considering KEMCO's modus operandi on 3DS, we expect this one to be a retro-inspired RPG. We shall see, and that doesn't necessarily have to be considered a bad thing, either. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Mario's Super Picross (Nintendo, €7.99 / £7.19) - The 3DS has a lot of Picross options, and now this rather enjoyable SNES entry in the genre joins the list. This one does nothing wrong, as we pointed out in our Wii U Virtual Console Mario's Super Picross review, but are D-Pad and button inputs in this retro entry worth dealing with in light of the substantial range of current-gen Picross games already on 3DS? That's up to you. 3DS Retail Download SEGA 3D Classics Collection (SEGA, €29.99 / £24.99) - This includes nine terrific 3D Classics, four of which are coming outside of Japan for the first time; that's a lot of wonderful retro gaming at its best on 3DS. We go through the key games and explain why it's a must-have in our SEGA 3D Classics Collection review. 3DS DLC Hyrule Warriors Legends: A Link Between Worlds Pack (Nintendo, included with season pass, €6.99 / £6.29 3DS only or €8.99 / £8.09 with Wii U version) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Funfair Party Games (Joindots, €5.59 / £3.99 until 17th November, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Jewel Match 3 (Joindots, €5.59 / £3.99 until 17th November, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Pazuru (Joindots, €4.79 / £3.19 until 17th November, normally €5.99 / £3.99) 3DS HOME Themes Animal Crossing: New Leaf Autumn Leaves (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Sonic Bundle #3 (SEGA, €4.99 / £4.49) - Includes Sonic series: Cute Style, Sonic series: Shadow Style and Sonic series: Silver Style.

  19. Picross 3D for the Nintendo DS was a painfully average puzzle game with absolutely no challenge at all but people seem to love it. There's a few reasons for this, the first is that it's a Nintendo game and thus totally loaded with charm. The second is that since it's a Nintendo game they bought it even though they don't play puzzle games much and don't really appreciate what goes into a good puzzle game. Therefore they love it, think it's the best thing since sliced bread, when in reality it's "okay." It really is okay. It's an okay diversion, it's an okay way to while away a few minutes here and there, and so I'm actually quite interested in the sequel. It could be a great little downloadable timewaster if you've got five minutes to kill and can't be bothered to engage your brain. I instantly don't like the move away from solid blocks in the solutions but it'll probably grow on me. Has amiibo support, so probably a Mario puzzle if you connect Mario to it and stuff. That'd be hilarious, like £14.99 for a one-puzzle piece of DLC. Comes out at the start of October in Japan at a budget price. Comes out never in Europe probably because even though you love Nintendo, they hate you. They think you're a right mug.
  20. When the best thing of the week is a free Sonic 25th Anniversary Theme for the 3DS, you know it ain't a good week. Oh, except Fairune 2 - hopefully that is great! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Mr. Pumpkin Adventure (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.99) - This looks remarkably quirky, and it includes 50 scenes to explore and investigate, with a number of puzzles to tackle. It doesn't seem short of uniqueness and creativity. Solitaire (Sanuk Games, €4.99 / £4.49) - This appears to be exactly as the name suggests, a version of the iconic office time-waster on the Wii U. Wii U Retail Download Just Dance 2017 (Ubisoft, €49.99 / £39.99) - This series of dancing games continues to go strong, giving musical movers a chance to show off to a variety of pop hits. This one has a demo available, and all purchases get 90 days of free access to streaming service Just Dance Unlimited. Wii U eShop DLC Runbow - Shantae (13AM Games, free) Minecraft: Wii U Edition: Battle Map Pack 4 (Mojang, €2.99 / £2.39) Minecraft: Wii U Edition: Campfire Skin Pack (Mojang, €1.99 / £1.59) Minecraft: Wii U Edition: Halloween Battle Map (Mojang, €1.99 / £1.59) Minecraft: Wii U Edition: Spooky Bundle (Mojang, €6.99 / £5.59) - Includes Halloween 2015 Mash-up Pack, Camp Fire Tales Skin Pack and Halloween Battle Map.

Don't let the convoluted source of this one put you off, as it aims to deliver its own spin of mature horror on the 3DS. In our first impressions from E3 we explained the basics and said it's a treat for Japanese horror fans, and we'll get cracking on a review. Available from 26th October. Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure (Mastiff, €14.99 / £14.99) - A 3D action adventure game with a long history, in recent times its been remastered and revived for PC and, now, the 3DS. It puts the stereoscopic screen to work, and as a full retail game 'back in the day' it offers a lengthy campaign, multiple endings and various goodies. We were impressed with it in our Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure review. Downloads include a free 3DS HOME Theme. Fairune 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €6.99 / £6.89) - Another retro-styled RPG for the eShop, though we quite liked the original and its take on combat. This one will hopefully be similarly worthy of a recommendation, and a world five times bigger than in the first game is also promised. New Nintendo 3DS eShop Box Up (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - In this title you try to guide a box up a screen (avoiding obstacles) in randomly generated levels. 3DS Retail Download DISNEY 2-PACK: FROZEN - BIG HERO 6 COMBO (GameMill, €29.99 / £19.99) 3DS eShop Halloween Deals Zombie Incident (Coderchild, €1.49 / £1.49 until 3rd November, normally €1.99 / £1.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €4.99 / £4.99 until 10th November, normally €6.99 / £6.99) Witch & Hero (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.99 until 3rd November, normally €3.99 / £3.99) New Nintendo 3DS eShop Temporary Discount BRICK RACE (RCMADIAX, €1.00 / £0.93 until 10th November, normally €1.49 / £1.39) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Word Puzzles by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €6.99 / £6.29 until 3rd November, normally €8.99 / £7.99) Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D Download Version (Zordix AB, €4.99 / £4.99 until 3rd November, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Glory of Generals (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.59 until 10th November, normally €6.99 / £6.09) Mercenaries Saga 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £2.40 until 10th November, normally €4.99 / £2.99) Samurai Defender (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.99 until 10th November, normally €2.99 / £2.99) Darts Up 3D (EnjoyUp Games, €1.49 / £1.34 until 24th November, normally €2.99 / £2.69) Football Up 3D (EnjoyUp Games, €1.97 / £1.56 until 24th November, normally €2.99 / £2.36) Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition (Ratalaika Games, €2.54 / £2.29 until 3rd November, normally €2.99 / £2.69) Defend Your Crypt (Ratalaika Games, €2.54 / £2.29 until 3rd November, normally €2.99 / £2.69) 3DS HOME Themes Pokémon: A Sinister Organisation - Team Rocket (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Pokémon: A Sinister Organisation - Team Galactic (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Mario's Halloween (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Sonic series: 25th Anniversary Theme (SEGA, free) Sonic series: Classic Style (SEGA, €1.99 / £1.79) Sonic series: Boom Style (SEGA, €1.99 / £1.79) Sonic series: Sonic Style (SEGA, €1.99 / £1.79) Sonic Bundle #2 (SEGA, €4.99 / £4.49) Shaun the Sheep - Timmy (Aardman Animations, €1.99 / £1.79) Shaun the Sheep (Aardman Animations, €1.99 / £1.79) Gurumin Heroes Theme (Mastiff, €1.39 / £1.19) Gurumin Monster Pals Theme (Mastiff, €1.39 / £1.19) Gurumin Night Parade Theme (Mastiff, €1.39 / £1.19) Gurumin Orange Twist Theme (Mastiff, €1.39 / £1.19) Gurumin Monster Bundle (Mastiff, €3.49 / £3.49) Magic HalloWinx (Rainbow, €1.99 / £1.79) Hello Kitty Halloween (Sanrio, €0.99 / £0.89)
  21. http://www.sonicretro.org/2015/06/sonic-boom-fire-ice-announced/ Well, the 3DS version of Boom wasn't completely broken at least, to their...credit? DAY ONE
  22. Aside from the stand-alone Pokemon Sun/Moon demo, not much new this week. Loads of discounts though! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Pirate Pop Plus (13AM Games, €4.49 / £4.09 or free if you own the New 3DS version on the same Nintendo Account) - The title takes inspiration from Mitchell Corp's classic bubble-popping title Pang; with Game Boy-style visuals and an excellent chiptune soundtrack, it certainly looks the part. The gameplay involves popping bubbles and blasting enemies, but at certain points the gravity changes, placing you on the sides of the screen or even upside down on the ceiling. We enjoyed this in our hands on impressions and will get working on a review right away. Fire: Ungh's Quest (Daedalic, €9.99 / £8.99) - From a developer and publisher revered for its puzzle adventure games in Germany, particularly, this 'puzzleventure' promises plenty of personality and quirky environments and puzzles; we'll get cracking on a review. Super Destronaut 2: Go Duck Yourself (Petite Games, €1.99 / £1.79) - Looking very much like a clone of Taito's seminal Space Invaders, the game involves blasting oncoming enemies, collecting power-ups and grabbing coins to boost your score multiplier. Classic, Time Attack, Hardcore and "Invaders" modes are promised, and there's a multiplayer option as well. Wii U Virtual Console Project Zero 2: Wii Edition (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - A Wii retail title that was at the heart of a North American localisation storm in the last generation, this sees twins Mio and Mayu Amakura exploring a creepy village full of poltergeists, all waiting to be snapped on camera. We gave this a recommendation in our Project Zero 2: Wii Edition review. Wii U eShop Halloween Deals Bayonetta 2 (Nintendo, €34.99 / £27.99 until 3rd November, normally €49.99 / £39.99) Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water full game (Nintendo, 34.99 / £27.99 until 3rd November, normally €49.99 / £39.99) ZombiU (Ubisoft, €7.99 / £6.39 until 3rd November, normally €19.99 / £15.99) Darksiders II (Nordic Games, €12.49 / £9.99 until 3rd November, normally €49.99 / £39.99) Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 3rd November, normally €49.99 / £39.99) Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition (Capcom, €13.99 / £12.59 until 3rd November, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (Capcom, €4.90 / £3.95 until 3rd November, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (Bandai Namco, €9.99 / £9.00 until 3rd November, normally €39.99 / £36.99) Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (Bandai Namco, €8.70 / £6.19 until 3rd November, normally €34.99 / £24.99) Don't Starve: Giant Edition (Klei Entertainment, €6.99 / £6.29 until 3rd November, normally €13.99 / £12.59) Super Meat Boy (Blitworks, €11.20 / £10.40 until 3rd November, normally €14.00 / £13.00) The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (Nicalis, €8.99 / £8.00 until 3rd November, normally €14.99 / £13.49) Year Walk (Simogo, €3.49 / £3.14 until 3rd November, normally €6.99 / £6.29) Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut (Curve Digital, €2.99 / £2.49 until 3rd November, normally €11.99 / £9.99) Costume Quest 2 (Midnight City, €7.49 / £6.74 until 3rd November, normally €14.99 / £13.49) Extreme Exorcism (Ripstone, €5.99 / £4.49 until 3rd November, normally €12.99 / £9.99) Nihilumbra (BeautiFun Games, €2.65 / £1.99 until 3rd November, normally €8.99 / £6.99) Shadow Puppeteer (Snow Cannon Games, €7.49 / £6.74 until 3rd November, normally €14.99 / £13.49) Ziggurat (Milkstone Studios, €9.00 / £7.00 until 3rd November, normally €15.00 / £12.00) Slender: The Arrival (Blue Isle Studios, €4.49 / £3.19 until 3rd November, normally €8.99 / £6.39) Whispering Willows (Abstraction Games, €4.99 / £3.99 until 3rd November, normally €9.99 / £7.99) How to Survive (505 Games, €6.99 / £6.29 until 3rd November, normally €13.99 / £12.59) Unepic (Unepic Fran, €4.99 / £4.40 until 3rd November, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Wii U Virtual Console Halloween Deals The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29 until 3rd November, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Devil World (Nintendo, €3.49 / £2.44 until 3rd November, normally €4.99 / £3.49) Pandora's Tower (Nintendo, €13.99 / £12.59 until 3rd November, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Castlevania (Konami, €3.49 / £2.44 until 3rd November, normally €4.99 / £3.49) Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (Konami, €3.49 / £2.44 until 3rd November, normally €4.99 / £3.49) Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (Konami, €3.49 / £2.44 until 3rd November, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (Konami, €4.89 / £4.40 until 3rd November, normally €6.99 / £6.29) Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Konami, €4.89 / £4.40 until 3rd November, normally €6.99 / £6.69) Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (Konami, €4.89 / £4.40 until 3rd November, normally €6.99 / £6.69) Castlevania: Dracula X (Konami, €5.59 / £3.84 until 3rd November, normally €7.99 / £5.49) Super Castlevania IV (Konami, €5.59 / £3.84 until 3rd November, normally €7.99 / £5.49) Ghosts 'n Goblins (Capcom, €3.49 / £2.44 until 3rd November, normally €4.99 / £3.49) Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Capcom, €5.59 / £3.84 until 3rd November, normally €7.99 / £5.49) Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts - GBA version (Capcom, €4.89 / £4.40 until 3rd November, normally €6.99 / £6.69) Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darkness (Capcom, €3.49 / £2.44 until 3rd November, normally €4.99 / £3.49) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Tumblestone (The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, €19.99 / £15.99 until 27th October, normally €24.99 / £19.99) Gunman Clive HD Collection (Hörberg Productions, €2.39 / £2.15 until 3rd November, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Human Resource Machine (Tomorrow Corporation, €6.99 / £6.29 until 27th October, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Little Inferno (Tomorrow Corporation, €4.99 / £4.49 until 27th October, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Hurry Up!

This incorporates some minigames and content from past entries on GBA and DS, along with some all-new levels; it's a 'greatest hits' or sorts, as a result. We gave it a strong recommendation in our Rhythm Paradise Megamix review. 3DS eShop Ping Pong Trick Shot (Starsign, €1.99 / £1.99) - Slightly odd, as this is a video game version of throwing a ball into a cup. There are different modes (Score Attack, Time Attack and so on) and promises of wacky things like portals that'll shake this up. New Nintendo 3DS eShop Pirate Pop Plus (13AM Games, €4.49 / £4.09 or free if you own the Wii U version on the same Nintendo Account) - As per the Wii U iteration, but handily on the go and perhaps fitting the Game Boy aesthetic even better. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Super Castlevania IV (Konami, €5.59 / £5.00 until 3rd November, normally €7.99 / £7.19) - Some would argue that this is near the peak of the Castlevania franchise. This Super NES title is held in particularly high esteem for good reason, and is sure to tempt some download fans on the portable; you can see what we thought in our Super Castlevania IV review. Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Capcom, €5.59 / £5.00 until 3rd November, normally €7.99 / £7.19) — A SNES classic arrives on the New 3DS; it's a gruelling action game ready to test your skills and patience in the best possible way. With terrific sprite graphics and excellent music to help you along, we suspect most will make frequent use of save states on the New 3DS.

  23. This week, the only thing worth getting is Chase. But for the sake of completeness, here's the full list from Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition (Digital Lounge, €3.99 / £3.59 until 27th October, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Never Alone (E-Line Media, €2.99 / £2.59 until 27th October, normally €14.99 / £12.99) Chompy Chomp Chomp Party (Utopian World of Sandwiches, €5.49 / £4.49 until 10th November, normally €10.99 / £8.99) STEEL RIVALS (nuGAME, €4.99 / £4.49 until 13th November, normally €6.99 / £5.99) 3DS Retail Download Disney Magical World 2 (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - This follow up once again offers a sim / adventure experience within a whole load of Disney settings; it's likely to be ridiculously charming, too. Famous franchises such as Frozen are included, and we were certainly quite impressed in our preview - we'll see whether it's a truly magical experience in our review. 3DS eShop Chase: Cold Case Investigations - Distant Memories (Aksys Games, €4.79 / £ 4.80 when discount is redeemed for 20 Gold Points in My Nintendo, normally €5.99 / £6.00) - An eye-catching project led by Taisuke Kanasaki and developed by the talents of multiple staff from the now shuttered CiNG studio. They're well known for narrative-driven titles on the DS in particular, including the likes of Trace Memory, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Last Window: The Secret of Cape West. This one seems to boast a noir-style, an intriguing plot, and the opportunity to investigate crime scenes and interrogate suspects. We'll crack the case of whether this is worth a look in our review. Ash (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.99) - The latest in a relatively long line of classic-style RPGs to arrive at a budget price on the 3DS eShop. This one sticks to retro ideas but has issues with balancing, in particular, as we explained in our Ash review. 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Jett Rocket II - The Wrath of Taikai (Shin'en Multimedia, €6.70 / £5.70 until 3rd November, normally €8.99 / £7.66) Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition (Digital Lounge, €3.99 / £3.59 until 27th October, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Gunslugs (Engine Software, €0.99 / £0.89 until 20th October, normally €1.99 / £1.79) Gunslugs 2 (Engine Software, €2.49 / £2.19 until 20th October, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Snow Moto Racing 3D (Zordix AB, €5.99 / £5.39 until 20th October, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Splat the Difference (Lightwood Games, €3.75 / £3.30 until 27th October, normally €5.00 / £4.50) Witch & Hero 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 3rd November, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Chain Blaster (Joindots, €4.49 / £3.77 until 27th October, normally €4.99 / £4.19) Jump Trials Supreme (Joindots, €4.49 / £3.77 until 27th October, normally €4.99 / £4.19) Hazumi (Gamelion, €1.30 / £0.99 until 27th October, normally €2.69 / £1.99) 10-in-1: Arcade Collection (Gamelion, €0.99 / £0.89 until 27th October, normally €1.99 / £1.79) Crazy Kangaroo (Gamelion, €0.99 / £0.89 until 27th October, normally €1.99 / £1.89) League of Heroes (Gamelion, €1.99 / £1.79 until 27th October, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Monster Shooter (Gamelion, €1.99 / £1.60 until 27th October, normally €4.00 / £3.20) Pick-A-Gem (Gamelion, €1.49 / £1.29 until 27th October, normally €2.99 / £2.69) PIX3D (Gamelion, €1.99 / £1.79 until 27th October, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Rage of the Gladiator (Gamelion, €3.49 / £3.09 until 27th October, normally €6.99 / £6.29) SpeedX 3D (Gamelion, €1.49 / £1.29 until 27th October, normally €2.99 / £2.69) SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition (Gamelion, €0.99 / £0.89 until 27th October, normally €1.99 / £1.79) 3DS HOME Themes At the Park with Miffy by Mercis (Mercis / CPLG, €0.99 / £0.89) Miffy at the Circus by Mercis (Mercis / CPLG, €0.99 / £0.89) Miffy in Autumn by Mercis (Mercis / CPLG, €0.99 / £0.89) Miffy trick or treat? By Mercis (Mercis / CPLG, €0.99 / £0.89)
  24. Chase- The Unsolved Cases Section – A Faraway Memory~ (big image in spoiler) - full name -Chase- Mikaiketsu Jiken Sousaka ~Tooi Kioku~ (-Chase- The Unsolved Cases Section – A Faraway Memory~- developed by some ex-CING staff- director is Taisuke Kanasakim who worked on Another Code, Hotel Dusk and Last Window- game is published by Arc System Works- to be a ''hard-boiled'' adventure game- serious-tone, drama, and ''flashy visuals'' that invoke the atmosphere of a TV police drama- official website here, which features a sample of the soundtrack Glad to see them back up and running - the website has very Cing music - cannot wait... hope it gets translated!
  25. More meh than a field of goats. Colour Splash doesn't count. From Nintendolife: Wii U Retail Download Paper Mario: Color Splash (Nintendo, €49.99 / £39.99) - The series finally makes its bow on the Wii U, as Nintendo puts its expertise of HD craft-like visuals to work once again. This one introduces paint as a core mechanic, and otherwise offers a blend of timed button presses and items in battles. We were left impressed after spending time with it for our preview, and will have a review with you before release. Available from 7th October. Wii U eShop ACT IT OUT! A Game of Charades (Snap Finger Click, €9.99 / £8.99) - As the name suggests this is a party game in which you try to help others guess phrases or names. Originally on PS4, the GamePad touchscreen allows drawing to come into the mix in addition to acting and singing. It looks like a fun idea, but we'll see whether it's the right act in a review. Ninja Pizza Girl (Disparity Games, €8.99 / £7.99) - A 2D runner with sources of inspiration such as Sonic The Hedgehog and Mirror's Edge. Rather than a health gauge, however, the theme judges your esteem as you dash through delivering pizza as stylishly as possible; mistakes and enemies bring on taunts from bullies, with this game seeking to raise awareness of these issues. PING 1.5+ (NAMI TENTOU MUSHI, €4.49 / £3.99) — With retro-styled visuals and a steep difficulty level, this is over 100 levels of trying to shoot a cube through over 100 increasingly tricky levels. Though we feel this one falls short in some aspects, it has plenty of promise and good ideas in its favour; our review explains why. PSIBO (NAMI TENTOU MUSHI, €4.49 / £3.99) - Another title from this developer that opts for a retro aesthetic, which need not be a bad thing. This includes an endless modes after a campaign of fighting through 'hexagonal defence systems'; we'll let you know what we think in a review. VRog (ByteRockers' Games, €2.49 / £2.20 until 20th October, then €4.99 / £4.49) - A somewhat peculiar arrival as it's cited as a Virtual Reality game in which you play as a frog on a lake. That probably means exploring in first-person, though whether it'll have the same appeal without a pricey headset is unclear. Wii U Virtual Console WarioWare Smooth Moves (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - The Wii's entry in the chaotic and rather fun series, the Wii Remote becomes the 'Form Baton' for quickfire minigames. Multiplayer is unlocked after clearing single player (oddly) but nevertheless this offers good silly fun; we liked it in our WarioWare Smooth Moves review back in 2007. Wii U DLC Minecraft: Wii U Edition - Chinese Mythology Mash-up Pack (Mojang, €4.99 / £3.99) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Infinity Runner (Wales Interactive, €3.20 / £2.79 until 3rd November, normally €6.49 / £5.89) Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 13th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Dracula's Legacy (Joindots, €7.19 / £5.39 until 20th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Jones on Fire (Joindots, €5.39 / £4.13 until 20th October, normally €5.99 / £4.59) Queen's Garden (Joindots, €6.29 / £4.94 until 20th October, normally €6.99 / £5.49) 3DS Retail Download Mario Party: Star Rush (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - The second entry of this series to arrive on 3DS, though this one aims to address some criticisms of recent editions. Players now all move separately and at the same time to speed up games, while the free 'Guest' download allows groups to enjoy the full multiplayer game even with only one player owning a full copy. We had a good time in our preview, and will have a review with you before the game launches. Available from 7th October. 3DS eShop Mario Party: Star Rush - Party Guest (Nintendo, free) - As long as one of the players has a full copy of the main game, this allows a group of up to four to enjoy full local multiplayer for free. Epic Word Search Holiday Special (Lightwood Games, €7.99 / £5.99) - A continuation from previous entries in the series, but this time around it features categories themed around Holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day. PixelMaker (Nostatic Software, $2.99 / CAD$3.49) - Having previously brought us VoxelMaker, Nostatic now takes a similar approach to producing pixel art. At a budget price this promises the ability to utilise the portable for producing scenes of pixel art, which can then naturally be shared to Miiverse. We enjoyed the Wii U version in our review, and will take a look at this portable iteration. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Breath of Fire (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19, or €3.99 / £3.59 until 20th October if you own Breath of Fire II on New 3DS) — The Super NES wasn't short of RPG titles, and here's one of Capcom's more prominent efforts from the era; you play as Ryu (and companions) who has the ability to transform into a powerful beast, which must be handy when saving the world. Our reviewer did feel that this is rather dated compared to its 16-bit contemporaries, a point we explained in our previous Breath of Fire review. Breath of Fire II (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19, or €3.99 / £3.59 until 20th October if you own Breath of Fire on New 3DS) — Nintendo's classic 16-bit console is revered for many things, but one of its strengths was surely the abundance of RPG adventures that it brought gamers keen for an adventure. This may be a sequel on the Super NES, but it offers up just that kind of experience while being undoubtedly old-school — and harsh — in its approach. We nevertheless gave it a recommendation in our Breath of Fire II review. My Nintendo Reward Chase: Cold Case Investigations - Distant Memories (Aksys Games, €4.79 / £ 4.80 when discount is redeemed for 20 Gold Points, normally €5.99 / £6.00) - Here's an interesting one, advance warning of a My Nintendo discount on a game due to be released on 13th October. Essentially a launch discount on the game, this will be available to redeem from 6th October until 27th October. 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Aqua Moto Racing 3D (Zordix AB, €5.99 / £5.39 until 13th October, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 13th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Urban Trial Freestyle (Tate Multimedia, €1.49 / £1.29 until 27th October, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Castle Conqueror Defender (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.49 / £2.79 until 27th October, normally €4.99 / £3.99) 3D MahJongg (Joindots, €3.99 / £3.59 until 20th October, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Gardenscapes (Joindots, €6.39 / £4.79 /until 20th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Murder on the Titanic (Joindots, €6.39 / £4.79 until 20th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Safari Quest (Joindots, €5.59 / £3.99 until 20th October, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Cats and Dogs 3D - Pets at Play (Treva Entertainment, €7.99 / £6.79 until 20th October, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Life With Horses 3D (Treva Entertainment, €14.99 / £13.49 until 20th October, normally €19.99 / £17.99) My Little Baby 3D (Treva Entertainment, €7.99 / £6.79 until 20th October, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Pets Resort 3D (Treva Entertainment, €7.99 / £6.79 until 20th October, normally €29.99 / £17.99) 3DS eShop Permanent Discount Power Disc Slam (Chequered Cow Games, €5.49 / £4.99, previously €11.99 / £9.99 3DS HOME Themes Disappearance of Hatsune Miku (DWANGO, €1.99 / £1.79) Melancholic (DWANGO, €1.99 / £1.79) Ii Aru Fanclub (DWANGO, €1.99 / £1.79) Lost One's Weeping (DWANGO, €1.99 / £1.79) Brain Fluid Explosion Girl (DWANGO, €1.99 / £1.79) Hello Kitty autumn (Sanrio, €0.99 / £0.89) Hello Kitty Comics (Sanrio, €0.99 / £0.89) Hello Kitty cupcakes (Sanrio, €0.99 / £0.89) Hello Kitty Unicorn (Sanrio, €0.99 / £0.89)
