  1. 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)
  2. 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!
  3. 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)
  4. Sonic Boom! Sonic Boom! BULLSHEEEEET. Thankfully, some good stuff too. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop SteamWorld Heist (Image & Form, €19.99 / £14.99) - The follow-up to breakthrough title SteamWorld Dig, this adopts a turn-based 2D strategy approach for the highly stylised steambot IP. A lengthy campaign is delivered along with plenty of weapons and hats, because robots wearing hats are surely irresistible; we loved this in our SteamWorld Heist review for the 3DS eShop, and will take another look at this HD iteration. Available from 30th September. Soul Axiom (Wales Interactive, €14.99 / £11.99 or €12.74 / £10.19 until 15th October for those that have the Nindies@Home demo) - Similar in stylistic approach to Master Reboot, this nevertheless has its own story and twists on puzzle-based stages. With a relatively surreal style and the ability to phase objects in and out of existence, this certainly has plenty of potential. We'll explore its mysteries for our upcoming review. Quest of Dungeons (Upfall Studios, €8.99 / £7.99 or free if you own the 3DS version on the same Nintendo Network ID) - A turn-based dungeon-crawling roguelike, this one has the choice of four character classes, with the key challenge being to tackle randomly generated dungeons, accumulate loot and then boost your abilities. Throw in boss encounters, permadeath and multiple difficulty levels and this is full of promise. We'll have a review with you soon. SDK Spriter (HullBreach Studios, €12.50 / £10.50 or €10.00 / £8.40 if you own SDK Paint on the same Nintendo Network ID) - An app that may be tempting for creative retro enthusiasts, this aims to be a tool for "creating retro video game assets, including character sprite sheets, tile sets, maps, and full levels", which can be shared on Miiverse or the app's official site. Wii U DLC FAST Racing NEO: NEO Future Pack (Shin'en Multimedia,€4.99 / £4.20) - This will include eight new tracks, ten new vehicles and 18 new music tracks; we'll check this out and share some impressions. Available from 30th September. SteamWorld Heist: The Outsider (Image & Form, €4.99 / £4.49) - Available from 30th September. SteamWorld Heist - Hatbox: Hatful Eight + 2 (Image & Form, €1.99 / £1.79) - Available from 1st October. SteamWorld Heist - Hatbox: Three 4 Free (Image & Form, free) - Available from 2nd October. Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (Gaijin Games, €5.99 / £4.99 until 3rd October, normally €11.99 / £9.99) Gravity Badgers (Wales Interactive, €2.49 / £2.49 until 29th October, normally €4.99 / £4.99) Bit Dungeon+ (Dolores Entertainment, €4.00 / £3.60 until 6th October, normally €4.99 / £4.99) Dual Core (Gray Fin Studios, €6.99 / £5.99 until 13th October, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Midnight 2 (Petite Games, €1.59 / £1.43 until 20th October, normally €1.99 / £1.79) 99Seconds (EnjoyUp Games, €1.49 / £1.34 until 27th October, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Darts Up (EnjoyUp Games, €1.49 / £1.34 until 27th October, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Rock 'N Racing Off Road (EnjoyUp Games, €2.99 / £2.69 until 27th October, normally €5.99 / £5.39) Run Run and Die (EnjoyUp Games, €1.99 / £1.79 until 27th October, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Hot Rod Racer (ZeNfA Productions, €1.49 / £1.34 until 27th October, normally €2.99 / £2.69) ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimensions! (ZeNfA Productions, €1.49 / £1.14 until 27th October, normally €2.99 / £2.29) Epic Dumpster Bear (Log Games, €3.89 / £2.99 until 27th October, normally €6.49 / £4.99) Nintendo Selects eShop Permanent Discounts (from 30th September) Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Nintendo, €24.99 / £19.99, previously €39.99 / £34.99) Mario Party 10 (Nintendo, €24.99 / £19.99, previously €39.99 / £34.99) Pikmin 3 (Nintendo, €24.99 / £19.99, previously €49.99 / £39.99 ) Super Mario 3D World (Nintendo, €24.99 / £19.99, previously €59.99 / £49.99 ) 3DS eShop River City: Tokyo Rumble (Natsume, €29.99 / £24.99) - A title that originally seemed to be destined as a Japan-only release, credit is due to Natsume for bringing this to the West, albeit it's download-only in Europe. This side-scrolling brawler is the latest in a diverse series that's been known as Renegade, River City Ransom, Street Gangs, Crash 'n The Boys, and Double Dragon depending on region, and this modern day iteration continues some of the traditions seen in games like those; it also has two minigames, a free-for-all arena brawler and a dodgeball game. We'll check it out in a review, but until then you can learn more about it in our first impressions article from E3. Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (Inti Creates, €11.69 / £9.99 until 5th October, normally €12.99 / £11.10) - A much-anticipated sequel to a critically acclaimed eShop release, this looks set to include more of the same enjoyable gameplay with a few extra twists, including Copen as a playable character. We'll let you know what we think soon. Ninja Usagimaru - The Mysterious Karakuri Castle (Aksys Games, €5.99 / £5.00) - We rather enjoyed this one's predecessor, which blends a lovely Japanese aesthetic with tricky and clever puzzles. 60+ levels are promised in this new entry, and it'll be interesting to see whether it matches the quality of the original. Quest of Dungeons (Upfall Studios, €8.99 / £7.99 or free if you own the Wii U version on the same Nintendo Network ID) - The same game but on the go, albeit with StreetPass included; the idea is that if you pass others you may come across the ghost of one of their failed attempts, which you can try to kill and loot. Noah's Cradle (CIRCLE Entertainment, €4.99 / £3.99) - An action flying game that brings the Ace Combat series to mind. It promises six levels and has a heck of a backstory, so could be promising. 3DS Retail Downloads *WARNING WARNING WARNING* Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (SEGA, €39.99 / £34.99) - The Sonic Boom brand is tainted in some eyes by its disastrous Wii U game, but an initial 3DS release and the TV series are reasonable (and in the latter case popular) efforts. This 3DS sequel gives Sonic and friends the ability to switch between fire and ice elements, and features some solid (and occasionally pacey) gameplay. We'll have a review with you before release, but in the meantime you can learn more about this one in our Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice preview. Available from 30th September. DO NOT BUY THIS UTTER, UTTER SHITE. 3DS DLC Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice: Special Episode (Capcom, €5.99 / £5.39) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Art of Balance TOUCH! (Shin'en Multimedia, €5.20 / £4.70 until 20th October, normally €6.99 / £6.29) Epic Word Search Collection (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 6th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Epic Word Search Collection 2 (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 6th October, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Demon King Box (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 20th October, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Parking Star 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.69 until 20th October, normally €2.99 / £2.49) Quell Reflect (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 20th October, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Football Up Online (EnjoyUp Games, €1.99 / £1.79 until 27th October, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Crazy Construction (Joindots, €5.59 / £3.99 until 6th October, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Alien on the Run (Joindots, €3.99 / £3.35 until 6th October, normally €4.99 / £4.19) 3DS HOME Themes The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Herbert Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Icke Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Klinsy Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Kuito Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Litty Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Mari Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Rudy Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Sola Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Urken Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) The Legend of Dark Witch 2 - Zizou Theme (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.99) Encave II Theme (Bergsala, €1.99 / £1.79) Encave III (Bergsala, €1.99 / £1.79) Shantae Beach (Bozon, €1.99 / £1.79)
  5. It's the Metroid game you never wanted and certainly didn't ask for! Why not sign up for one of those totally ineffective internet petitions and get this shite stopped, eh? https://www.change.org/p/nintendo-petition-for-cancelation-of-metroid-prime-federation-force
  6. Not done one of these for a few weeks because 1) I've been busy, and 2) They've been shit. But this week is pretty good. Also, don't forget there were new StreetPass games last week - all 5 are pretty good, so you may as well buy the set, but you can choose either the slot car or the stock market one for free if you're strapped for money - they're both great. And there's a demo of Phoenix Wright too Oh, and a warning about the Sega 3D Classics - those are great games, and great prices BUT! there's a physical medium collection incoming soon so you might want to hold fire. Or buy both. Actually, buy both. And get Fairune while you're there. As usual, from Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Jotun: Valhalla Edition (Thunder Lotus Games, €13.49 / £10.79 until 15th September, normally €14.99/ £11.99) - A well-regarded title that Nintendo is promoting as one of the key 'Nindie' releases this month, it adopts a mostly overhead view as you battle to prove yourself to the Gods. With gorgeous visuals and steeped in Norse mythology, this one looks promising; we'll bring you a review but, in the meantime, we had a chat with the developers just before E3 that you can check out. 140 (Double Fine Productions, €7.99 / £5.59) - This has a minimalistic aesthetic for its blend of puzzle platforming. Developed by Carlsen Games / Abstraction Games this seems to be oozing style, and has a nice soundtrack to boot. We'll see whether it all adds up well in our review. Vektor Wars (Super Icon Ltd, €7.99 / £7.99 ) - A first-person shooter with stylised vector-based visuals, this has '9 world zones' in which you blast away at a variety of robot foes. We rather liked this for some intense arcade-style action, as we explain in our Vektor Wars review. Rorrim (Nitrolic Games, €4.52 / £4.09) - A Princess gets sucked into a mirror and a world of dungeons, and you have to guide her through maze-like areas from a top-down perspective. The twist here is that the GamePad and the TV show 'Mirror' and 'Real' viewpoints, so you need both to solve the puzzles and make progress. We'll go on a rescue mission and let you know what we think. Alice in Wonderland (Brave Rock Games, €4.52 / £3.78) - This appears to be a narrated visual novel with some illustrations as you read along and listen. We'll see whether it does a classic book justice in our review. TOUCH SELECTIONS (RCMADIAX, €2.99 / £2.69) - This combines two previous releases in one download: PEG SOLITAIRE and AVOIDER. Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Mighty No. 9 (Deep Silver, €15.99 / £14.39 until 15th September, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Mighty No. 9 - Ray Expansion DLC (Deep Silver, €3.74 / £3.37 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Dragon Skills (Joindots, €7.19 / £6.11 until 22nd September, normally €7.99 / £6.79) Island Flight Simulator (Joindots, €7.19 / £5.39 until 22nd September, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Sweetest Thing (Joindots, €4.89 / £3.84 until 22nd September, normally €6.99 / £5.49) Bird Mania Party (Teyon, €0.99 / £0.89 until 29th September, normally €1.99 / £1.79) Zombie Defense (Teyon, €1.49 / £1.49 until 29th September, normally €1.99 / £1.99) Baila Latino (O2 Games, €12.90 / £11.90 until 5th October, normally €29.90 / £24.90) Fit Music for Wii U (O2 Games, €12.90 / £11.90 until 5th October, normally €29.90 / £24.90) Luv Me Buddies Wonderland (O2 Games, €12.90 / £11.90 until 5th October, normally €29.90 / £24.90) 360 Breakout (nuGAME, €5.00 / £4.00 until 6th October, normally €7.00 / £6.00) Wii U eShop Permanent Discount Canvaleon (OXiAB Game Studio, €4.95 / £4.49, previously €6.95 / £6.29) 3DS eShop Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice (Capcom, €29.99 / £24.99) - The latest in the series to make its way to the West as a download, this promising entry, this one features an extended cast of familiar faces, a mystical location and new features and twists such as séance trials. We're working on a review, but until then you can check out our impressions of the E3 demo. Kingdom's Item Shop (CIRCLE Ent, $5.00) - A quirky premise in which you run an item shop in a fantasy land, catering to heroes and their needs. You're supposed to set out and find new ingredients and goods to sell, however, and we suspect this one will aim to be as charming as possible. We'll open the doors on a review soon. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Final Fight (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 or buy 2 get the 3rd free on New 3DS VC Final Fight trilogy) — This is one of the earlier arcade conversions to the Super NES, and an iconic beat 'em up that's certainly welcome on the New portable's Virtual Console. Though this beat 'em up port lacks the co-op play that made the arcade a classic it's still enjoyable, as we explained in our New 3DS Virtual Console Final Fight review. Final Fight 2 (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 or buy 2 get the 3rd free on New 3DS VC Final Fight trilogy) — This second entry rights some wrongs of the first, including multiple playable characters and two-player co-op (the description for this New 3DS version does mention you can "have a friend join the fight"), though perhaps disappoints with some gameplay elements. You can see what we thought in our Wii U Virtual Console Final Fight 2 review, while we'll take to the streets again to take a fresh look. Final Fight 3 (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 or buy 2 get the 3rd free on New 3DS VC Final Fight trilogy) — Rounding off the Super NES trilogy of titles hitting the New 3DS VC this week, this one includes more brawling on the streets but also the option of an automatic two player mode where you play with the CPU. By our reckoning this third entry is probably the best of the group, as explained in our Wii U Virtual Console Final Fight 3 review. 3DS DLC Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice Costume Bundle (Capcom, €0.99 / £0.89) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts 3D Fantasy Zone (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Gunstar Heroes (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Out Run (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Space Harrier (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Streets of Rage (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Streets of Rage 2 (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) 3D Super Hang-On (SEGA, €2.45 / £2.20 until 15th September, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven (Marvelous, €17.99 / £14.99 until 22nd September, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Adventure Bar Story (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.19 until 29th September, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Castle Conqueror EX (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 29th September, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Fairune (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.59 until 29th September, normally €2.99 / £2.39) World Conqueror 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.19 until 29th September, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Rytmik Ultimate (Cinemax, €6.99 / £5.99 until 29th September, normally €17.99 / £15.99) The Keep (Cinemax, €3.99 / £3.49 until 29th September, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot (Coderchild, €1.99 / £1.80 until 29th September, normally €2.99 / £2.69) WordsUp!

  8. Worldwide release! All in 3D! Does look awesome. (itprintsmoney.gif?) Starting pokémon!
  9. This week, from Nintendolife, some reasonable 3DS discounts and ALL THE MEGAMANZ. Nintendo missing a trick not releasing/reducing some Pokeymen games now the Blue/Red/Yellow deal is up: Wii U eShop Frankenstein - Master of Death (Joindots, €7.99 / £5.99) - This is another puzzle / object finding title with a focus on storytelling, seemingly similar in approach to the surprisingly good Dracula's Legacy. You're in the role of Victor Frankenstein (the real Frankenstein, not the monster!), and we're inclined to be optimistic about this one based on the quality of its predecessor. We'll bring you a review soon. Mortar Melon (Nitrolic Games, €5.00 / £4.49 ) - A physics-based title in which you fling a watermelon through multiple tricky stages, riffing on ideas that have been a major success in recent years. In our review we felt this one lacked creativity, while also suffering from some notable control issues. Plenty of Fishies (Nitrolic Games, €5.00 / £4.49 ) — This is a collection of modes and challenges for single players or groups up to five, with bite-sized challenges the order of the day. Due to some serious issues with performance, however, we were exceptionally critical of this game in our review. 360 Breakout (nuGAME, €7.00 / £6.00) - This one promises an 'out of the ordinary' Breakout experience, with the name suggesting a 360 degree challenge. With solo play being accompanies by two play VS and co-op, this tries to offer some variety to the classic formula; we'll see whether it's a breakout success in a review. Wii U Virtual Console Super Paper Mario (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - With its successor on the way this October, this rather clever Wii title makes its bow on the eShop. Unique in its adoption of both 2D and 3D perspectives, it also has an entertaining story and a fairly lengthy campaign. We were big fans in our original Super Paper Mario review. Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 25th August, normally €49.99 / £39.99) DuckTales: Remastered (Capcom, €5.99 / £4.79 until 25th August, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (Capcom, €4.94 / £3.95 until 25th August, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Trine 2: Director's Cut (Frozenbyte, €8.49 / £6.99 until 29th August, normally €16.99 / £13.99) Trine Enchanted Edition (Frozenbyte, €6.49 / £5.49 until 29th August, normally €12.99 / £10.99) Wicked Monsters Blast! HD PLUS (Corecell, €2.99 / £2.69 until 1st September, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Joe's Diner (Joindots, €4.99 / £3.77 until 25th August, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Suspension Railroad Simulator (Joindots, €6.39 / £4.79 until 25th August, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Reptilian Rebellion (Herrero, €1.49 / £1.29 until 1st September, normally €1.99 / £1.79) 3DS eShop Ambition of the Slimes (CIRCLE Entertainment, €5.00 / £4.79) - A turn-based RPG in which you control a variety of slimes, rather than fighting them as you would in a certain classic series. The slimes have various types, strengths and weaknesses that need to be exploited for success. We'll get working on a review. Doll Fashion Atelier (Teyon, €4.99 / £4.49) - Teyon is a publisher that's never away from the eShop for long, and returns with a dress-up game in which you can style a variety of dolls across five different themes; naturally you can share your creations on Miiverse, too. With that said, we weren't fans of this in our Doll Fashion Atelier review. 3DS Retail Download Teddy Together (Nintendo) - A friendship game designed particularly for young children, you care for and interact with a teddy bear that's come to life. Released in Europe back on 1st July, this listing in Nintendo's press release is for its arrival in Australia / New Zealand on 11th August. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Mega Man X2 (Capcom, €3.99 / £3.59 until 25th August if you own Mega Man X3, otherwise €7.99 / £7.19) — While spin-offs aren't always a success, the early X games in the Mega Man series certainly captured the imagination. With a move-set and approach somewhat different to the "classic" series, this sequel is a rather good follow up to its X predecessor; we enjoyed this one in our Wii U Virtual Console Mega Man X2 review, and will take another look on New 3DS. Mega Man X3 (Capcom, €3.99 / £3.59 until 25th August if you own Mega Man X3, otherwise €7.99 / £7.19) — A game that represented the end of an era as Mega Man departed from Nintendo hardware to other platforms. As a farewell it's perhaps disappointing, and we were critical of it in our Wii U Virtual Console Mega Man X3 review. 3DS Demos Disney Art Academy (Nintendo, free) Undead Bowling (Joindots, free) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €8.99 / £7.49 until 25th August, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D (Capcom, €3.99 / £3.59 until 25th August, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 until 25th August, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Mega Man Legacy Collection (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 25th August, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (Capcom, €14.99 / £12.49 until 25th August, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 25th August, normally €24.99 / £19.99) Return to PopoloCrois: A STORY OF SEASONS Fairytale (Marvelous, €22.99 / £19.99 until 25th August, normally €34.99 / £29.99) AeternoBlade (Corecell, €4.99 / £4.49 until 1st September, normally €14.99 / £13.50) Beyblade Evolution (Rising Star Games, €4.99 / £4.99 until 25th August, normally €19.99 / £19.99) BIT.TRIP SAGA (Rising Star Games, €4.99 / £4.49 until 25th August, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Girls' Fashion Shoot (Rising Star Games, €4.99 / £4.99 until 25th August, normally €19.99 / £19.99) Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi (Rising Star Games, €11.99 / £11.99 until 25th August, normally €29.99 / £29.99) Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns (Rising Star Games, €9.99 / £8.99 until 25th August, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Hometown Story (Rising Star Games, €7.49 / £7.49 until 25th August, normally €29.99 / £29.99) Shifting World (Rising Star Games, €4.99 / £4.49 until 25th August, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Virtue's Last Reward (Rising Star Games, €12.49 / £9.99 until 25th August, normally €24.99 / £19.99) SADAME (Rising Star Games, €7.49 / £6.49 until 25th August, normally €14.99 / £12.99) Real Heroes Firefighter 3D (Zordix AB, €4.99 / £4.49 until 18th August, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Funfair Party Games (Joindots, €4.99 / £3.69 until 25th August, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Jewel Match 3 (Joindots, €3.99 / £2.89 until 25th August, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Pazuru (Joindots, €4.99 / £2.99 until 25th August, normally €5.99 / £3.99) Undead Bowling (Joindots, €2.99 / £2.13 until 25th August, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Brunch Panic (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.49 until 1st September, normally €3.99 / £3.39) Petit Novel Series - Harvest December (CIRCLE Entertainment, €7.99 / £6.39 until 1st September, normally €11.99 / £9.19) Sweet Memories Blackjack (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 1st September, normally €3.99 / £3.19) 10-in-1: Arcade Collection (Gamelion, €0.99 / £0.89 until 1st September, normally €1.99 / £1.79) Crazy Kangaroo (Gamelion, €0.99 / £0.89 until 1st September, normally €1.99 / £1.89) Hazumi (Gamelion, €1.30 / £0.99 until 1st September, normally €2.69 / £1.99) League of Heroes (Gamelion, €1.99 / £1.79 until 1st September, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Monster Shooter (Gamelion, €1.99 / £1.60 until 1st September, normally €4.00 / £3.20) Pick-A-Gem (Gamelion, €1.49 / £1.29 until 1st September, normally €2.99 / £2.79) PIX3D (Gamelion, €1.99 / £1.79 until 1st September, normally €3.99 / £3.59) Rage of the Gladiator (Gamelion, €3.49 / £3.09 until 1st September, normally €6.99 / £6.29) SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition (Gamelion, €0.99 / £0.89 until 1st September, normally €1.99 / £1.79) SpeedX 3D (Gamelion, €1.49 / £1.29 until 1st September, normally €2.99 / £2.69) 3DS HOME Themes Animal Crossing: Summer Fun (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79)
  10. Not full list yet, but! Three Street Fighter games are on the way to the New 3DS: Street Fighter II Turbo Super Street Fighter II Street Fighter Alpha And it's buy two, get one free. All fine and dandy, but they're all the SNES versions. Which isn't a problem so much for the Street Fighter II games, but a shame for SFA2. EDIT! Full list from Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Secret Files: Tunguska (Deep Silver, €4.99 / £4.49 until 4th August, normally €9.99/ £8.99) - This one actually arrived at retail in Germany quite some time ago, and finally makes its way to the rest of the continent at a tempting price point on the eShop. A fondly regarded point-and-click puzzle adventure that's previously been on multiple past-gen Nintendo systems, we'll find some warm clothes and take this on for a review. 3Souls - Episode 1: Nelesa (Red Column, €3.60 / £3.20) - An intriguing episodic release that aims to put the GamePad to work, utilising the second screen to show a character's emotions along with some other uses. This title also includes co-op, and we'll see how well it delivers on its ambition in a review. Letter Quest Remastered (Digerati, €7.99 / £7.19 until 11th August, normally €9.99 / £8.99) - A word-based game which employs turn-based RPG elements, this certainly has the potential to deliver some thrills for wordy gamers. We'll dig out a Thesaurus and let you know what we think. Dragon Skills (Joindots, €7.99 / £6.79) - A title that takes its inspiration from the classic Brick Breaker formula, in this case you paddle a ball back and forth that has an ever-growing tail, with bonuses piling up the longer you survive. We'll break out our rose-tinted specs and bring you a review. Wii U Virtual Console R-Type (Konami, €7.99 / £7.19) - The first of a triple arrival of TurboGrafx-16 titles on the Wii U Virtual Console, having previously been part of the extensive VC on Wii. This is a very decent port of the classic arcade shoot 'em up, which is regarded both as one of the greats of its genre and as an extremely challenging title. You can check out our Wii Virtual Console R-Type review while we work on a fresh perspective on Wii U. New Adventure Island (Konami, €5.99 / £5.39) - Another TurboGrafx-16 title, and another good 'un. It can be argued that this is one of the best titles featuring Master Higgins; it has bright visuals and smooth controls, along with a clever mechanic in which your health depletes with the passing of time, making every move count. We praised this a great deal in our Wii Virtual Console New Adventure Island review. Bonk's Adventure (Konami, €5.99 / £5.39) - A third TurboGrafx-16 release, originally brought to the Wii VC by the now defunct Hudson. A rather colourful and conventional platformer in which you headbutt enemies, it also has some humour for extra flavour. We gave it a modest recommendation in our Bonk's Adventure review. Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (ScrewAttack Games, €4.99 / £4.49 until 11th August, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Beatbuddy (Threaks, €3.99 / £3.99 until 8th August, normally €8.99 / £8.09) Rock 'n Racing Off Road (EnjoyUp Games, €2.99 / £2.69 until 25th August, normally €5.99 / £5.39) 99Seconds (EnjoyUp Games, €1.49 / £1.34 until 25th August, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Darts Up (EnjoyUp Games, €1.49 / £1.34 until 25th August, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Island Flight Simulator (Joindots, €7.19 / £5.39until 11th August, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Sweetest Thing (Joindots, €4.89 / £3.84 until 11th August, normally €6.99 / £5.49) 3DS eShop Power Disc Slam (Chequered Cow Games, €11.99 / £9.99) - This 3DS title is, in spirit at least, a modern take on Neo Geo title Windjammers, albeit with modern features such as online multiplayer and 60fps stereoscopic 3D. It promises quite a lot of content, so we'll throw ourselves into it for a review. Psycho Pigs (Bergsala Lightweight, €7.99 / £7.19) - A quirky arena brawler that cites a 1987 Jaleco game as its inspiration, you battle it out as pigs while trying to use the environment as an asset. We'll see whether it's tasty like bacon of hammed up nonsense in our review. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console If you buy two of the following on the New 3DS before 11th August, you get the third free: Street Fighter Alpha 2 (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19) - Although the original never arrived on Nintendo hardware, this sequel brought a taste of the arcade action to the Super NES. A spin-off from the core franchise, it utilises custom combos along with some fresh characters and a different art style; we were big fans of this in our Street Fighter Alpha 2 review. Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19) - This entry is more the typical Street Fighter action that's associated with the 16-bit era; in this one's case it has less flat-out content than its successor below, but does play faster courtesy of the Turbo options. We weighed it all up in our review for the Wii U Virtual Console release. Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19) - This entry lacks the speed of Turbo Hyper Fighting, but boasts more characters and modes to choose from; on some metrics its better, but those that crave speed will disagree. In any case we gave it a strong recommendation in our review. 3DS DLC Fire Emblem Fates - IV: Light's Sacrifice (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79 or part of map pack 2) - Part IV of Heirs of Fate.

  11. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies (prov. tittle) will be the last episode of the acclaimed puzzle series that started 5 years ago on the NDS. The story takes place one year after the events of The Miracle Mask, and will conclude the storyline of the second trilogy in the series. Not much more is known about it except that Layton, Luke, Emmy and Jean Descole will all be present again, and the full reveal will take place later this year at TGS 2012. The game is expected to launch in Japan during Summer 2013, and Euro 3DS owners can look forward to the game in late 2013.

    Lady Layton

    Level 5 have announced a new game in the Layton series - Lady Layton: The Millionaire Queen Ariadne's Plot. Featuring the same puzzle gameplay as the previous Layton games, you play Professor Layton's daughter. The Japanese release is in Spring next year.
  13. According to the latest rumours and the fact that Konami recently acquired the corresponding domain names, a new Castlevania game, subtitled Mirror of Fate is coming out somewhere in 2013. Mirror of Fate supposedly features 2D gameplay similar to what was produced on the NDS. However, this time Mercury Steam (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Clive Barker's Jericho) is making the game rather than Konami. Konami will still be publishing. It seems that Konami will be announcing Castlevania: Mirror of Fate, as a new 3DS title, at this year’s E3. The news apparently comes from the company’s appointment schedule for the event. Gameplay information is not yet available. However, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow producer David Cox and director/writer Enric Álvarez are supposedly working on Mirror of Fate too. Stay tuned for more news!
  14. This week, from Nintendolife, just a Kirby Demo (which is pointless as everyone should have bought the game already): Wii U eShop Buddy & Me: Dream Edition (Sunbreak Games, €4.39 / £3.89) - This is a hugely colourful and charming endless runner that was previously released on smart devices; naturally the Wii U edition has some enhancements to suit the home console. It looks like a lovely game, though we'll see whether it's dreamy or nightmarish in a review. Defend Your Crypt (Ratalaika Games, €2.99 / £2.69) - With retro-style visuals and a full stage view, this is a twist on real-time strategy and defence as you set traps to prevent treasure hunters stealing your gold. The concept certainly has potential, so we'll dig into a review and let you know what we think. Jewel Quest (iWin Inc., €4.39/ £3.49) - As the title suggests this is a HD version of the popular jewel matching game, in this case with the promise of 72 boards to take on; though lacking bells and whistles it achieves its goals, earning a recommendation in our Jewel Quest review. Toon Tanks (Petite Games, €1.99 / £1.79) - A top-down action game that seems like a revamp of late '70s classic Combat, it's a simplistic experience with little variety or incentive to keep playing - we explain why in our Toon Tanks review. Hot Rod Racer (ZeNfA Productions, €2.99 / £2.69) - The second title from ZeNfA, this adopts a top-down view for some pacy racing, with some customisation options also available to boost your vehicle. We'll hit the roads and bring you a review. Wii U Virtual Console A Shadow's Tale (Hudson Soft, €19.99 / £17.99) - An interesting arrival in the Wii download stakes, this stood out as a particularly intriguing 2D platformer during the last generation. It has some clever ideas that are put to good use, albeit with a few flaws affecting the experience; you can learn more in our A Shadow's Tale review. Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 28th July, normally €7.99 / £5.99) STEEL LORDS (nuGAME, €7.50 / £6.00 until 18th August, normally €14.99 / £10.99) Wii U Retail Demo Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Nintendo, free) 3DS eShop Adventure Labyrinth Story (CIRCLE Entertainment, €5.00 / £4.50) - A spin-off from Adventure Bar Story, this is a rogue-like RPG in which you set off into a randomly generated dungeon with the goal of retrieving legendary treasure. You start with nothing and try to build your way up as you explore, but if you die you revert back to level one and simply start again. We'll go exploring and bring you a review. Ninja Smasher! (PUMO, €3.55 / £2.93) - A side-scrolling action title with a cute aesthetic, you play as a rather athletic ninja that can use a variety of weapons to dispose of foes; it could certainly be fun, and we'll check it out in a review. Defend Your Crypt (Ratalaika Games, €2.99 / £2.69) - The same game as on Wii U, but available on the go. New Nintendo 3DS eShop Wind-up Knight 2 (Unity Games, €4.50/ £4.00) - This is a runner in which you swing your sword, jump, roll and use your shield to survive; titles of this type can potentially be fun, of course, and as a New 3DS release this is also one of the standard-bearers for the Unity engine on the portable. We gave the Wii U version a modest recommendation in our review, and will see how this one fares on the portable. 3DS DLC Fire Emblem Fates: Map Pack 2 (Nintendo, €7.99 / £7.19) - Includes a total of six paid maps. Fire Emblem Fates: Another Gift from Anna (Nintendo, free) Fire Emblem Fates - I: In Endless Dreams (Nintendo, €0.49 / £0.49) Fire Emblem Fates - II: Realms Collide (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Fire Emblem Fates: III: The Changing Tide (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 28th July, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Aqua Moto Racing 3D (ZordixAB, €3.99 / £3.59 until 28th July, normally €7.99 / £7.19) European Conqueror 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 18th August, normally €3.99 / £2.99) Glory of Generals (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.59 until 18th August, normally €6.99 / £6.09) Samurai Defender (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.59 until 18th August, normally €2.99 / £2.39) 3DS Retail Demo Kirby: Planet Robobot (Nintendo, free)

Like Mega Man, X must battle through each thrilling stage and defeat the boss, to capture its weapon for his own.

  16. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop TAP TAP ARCADE 2 (RCMADIAX, €2.99 / £2.69) - This second mini collection includes SKEASY and also a new arrival called VOLCANO. We gave the former a modest recommendation in our review, and we'll see whether its companion in this bundle is red hot or rather dormant in fun. Sudoku and Permudoku (Diplodocus Games, €0.99 / £0.89) – Well, it's all in the name, with the classic number puzzles joined by a colour-based variation. There are 1000 puzzles, 500 of each with five difficulty settings, and we thought this was a competent effort in our Sudoku and Permudoku review. Cube Life: Island Survival (Cypronia, €9.99 / £7.99) - This game has been out for some time, so its inclusion in Nintendo's list likely points to a major update being on the way (we'll leave this one out of the poll for that very reason). Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Splatoon (Nintendo, €29.99 / £25.99 until 21st July, normally €39.99 / £34.99) Steel Rivals (nuGAME, €4.99 / £4.49 until 21st July, normally €6.99 / £5.99) Wii U eShop Permanent Discounts Nova-111 (Curve Digital, €9.99 / £7.99, was €14.99 / £11.99) Barbie and Her Sisters Puppy Rescue (Little Orbit, €19.99 / £17.99, was €29.99/ £24.99) Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends (Little Orbit, €19.99 / £17.99, was €29.99/ £24.99) Monster High: New Ghoul in School (Little Orbit, €19.99 / £17.99, was €29.99/ £24.99) 3DS Downloadable Video Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva (Viz Media, €3.99 / £3.59) - Professor Layton, true English gentleman and the world's greatest amateur super sleuth embarks on his most daring adventure yet when he receives a letter from his old student, the famous opera diva Janice Quatlane.

Two young school girls are the latest victims and the Professor suspects it's related to the mysterious occurrences at the theatre. The Professor and his loyal assistant Luke travel to the Opera House to solve their toughest puzzle yet, the mystery of Eternal Life! 3DS DLC Fire Emblem Fates: Ballistician Blitz (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79 or part of Map Pack 1) - You might remember the general layout of Ballistician Blitz from "The Wooden Cavalry" stage in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. Nowhere is safe from their relentless volleys, so speed is the key! The prize here is either a Sighting Lens or a Witch's Mark. Fire Emblem Fates: A Gift from Anna (Nintendo, free) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Dan McFox: Head Hunter (Lightwood Games, €1.99 / £1.49 until 21st July, normally €2.49 / £1.99) Castle Conqueror Defender (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.49 / £2.79 until 28th July, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Glory of Generals: The Pacific (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.29 until 28th July, normally €6.99 / £5.59) Karous - The Beast Of Re:Eden- (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.29 until 28th July, normally €5.99 / £4.79) Mercenaries Saga 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.19 until 28th July, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Fantasy Pirates (EnjoyUp Games, €0.99 / £0.99 until 4th August, normally €4.50 / £4.50) RV-7 My Drone (EnjoyUp Games, €1.99 / £1.99 until 4th August, normally €2.99 / £2.99) Toys Vs.

  17. This week, from Nintendolife, including the ever confusing HYRULE WARRIORS DLC: Wii U eShop Ziggurat (Milkstone Studios, €15.00 / £12.00) - Previously released on PC, this is a first-person dungeon-crawler / roguelike that promises to bring a different challenge every time you play as its sorcerer protagonist. It has a number of key ingredients for the genre, with lots of items and levelling up to do along with some boss encounters. There aren't many quirky takes on first-person 'shooters' on Wii U, so it'll be interesting to see whether this can cast a spell over us in a review. Midnight 2 (Petite Games, €1.99 / £1.79) - A second entry in the series that adopts a relaxing aesthetic for some gravity-based puzzles in which you propel the ball-like protagonist around various stages. It continues the solid work of its predecessor, as we explain in our Midnight 2 review. Wii U Retail Download LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (WB Games, €49.99 / £39.99) - We've had to wait for this one long after the Blu-Ray / DVD release of the film itself, but the comedic and no doubt formulaic LEGO take on the hit movie is finally arriving. It'll include a few story snippets that are new and exclusive, along with the usual slightly off-beat portrayal of the movie's main scenes. Along with puzzle platforming there'll be a bit of flying, and we'll blast through a review to tell you whether the force is with this one. Available from 28th June. Wii U DLC Hyrule Warriors: Legends of Hyrule Pack (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99 for Wii U only season pass, £15.29 / €16.99 with 3DS season pass) Hyrule Warriors: Character Pack (Nintendo, €11.99 / £10.79) - Includes Linkle, Skull Kid, Tetra, Toon Link, King Daphnes and Ganondorf's trident weapon.

(Nintendo, €4.99 / £4.49) - Announced during E3 along with a discount for the first entry in this series, HAL Laboratory's cute little box returns with some extra box-based abilities (use two sets at once) and new puzzles to solve. We can expect plenty of charm and quirky collectables along with plenty of puzzle-based stages; we'll see whether all the sides of this one come together in a review. The Battle Cats POP! (PONOS, €9.99 / £8.99) - A successful smart device title that was given a big push by Nintendo in Japan when it arrived on the eShop, it now makes its way to the West. With a charming visual style this is a 2D tower defence game where the warriors in question are, of course, cats; there's also a multiplayer VS mode, too. We'll scratch out a review and let you know what we think. Available from 27th June. 3DS Retail Downloads Zero Time Dilemma (Aksys Games, €39.99 / £32.00) - The third part of this popular narrative / puzzle series arrives, with this entry set to fill in gaps and mysteries left over from Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue's Last Reward. It's a project that was largely made possible by vocal fan support, and it'll be interesting to see how it stacks up; we'll bring you a review as soon as we can. Available from 28th June. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (WB Games, €39.99 / £29.99) - As is now the norm we expect the portable entry to have a few gameplay changes from the Wii U iteration, with this 3DS entry likely to have a little less grand scale in its level designs and potentially a more linear approach. We'll find out and bring you a review. Available from 28th June. Teddy Together (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - A friendship game designed particularly for young children, you care for and interact with a teddy bear that's come to life. Available from 1st July. 3DS DLC Fire Emblem Fates - Map 9: Anna on the Run (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79 or part of map pack 1) - This one's all about Anna. You get the privilege of lending her a hand against a bunch of bizarre bandits. If you win, she'll join your army. Hyrule Warriors Legends: Link's Awakening Pack (Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29 or part of season pass) - Includes Marin as a new playable character, boots for Linkle, Koholint Map in Adventure Mode and 15 My Fairy Costume Pieces) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D Download Version (Zordix AB, €4.99 / £4.49 until 7th July, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Epic Word Search Collection 2 (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 7th July, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Darts Up 3D (EnjoyUp Games, €0.99 / £0.89 until 28th July, normally €2.99 / £2.69) Football Up 3D (EnjoyUp Games, €1.99 / £1.79 until 28th July, normally €2.99 / £2.36) Funfair Party Games (Joindots, €4.99 / £3.69 until 14th July, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Jewel Match 3 (Joindots, €3.99 / £2.89 until 14th July, normally €6.99 / £4.99) Pazuru (Joindots, €4.49 / £2.99 until 14th July, normally €5.99 / £3.99) Undead Bowling (Joindots, €2.99 / £2.13 until 14th July, normally €6.99 / £4.99) 3DS Downloadable Video Permanent Discounts Shaun the Sheep - episodes 1-5 (Nintendo / Aardman Animations Ltd, €1.99 / £1.79, previously €2.99 / £2.69) Shaun the Sheep - episodes 6-10 (Nintendo / Aardman Animations Ltd, €1.99 / £1.79, previously €2.99 / £2.69) Shaun the Sheep - episodes 11-15 (Nintendo / Aardman Animations Ltd, €1.99 / £1.79, previously €2.99 / £2.69) Shaun the Sheep - episode 1-15 + Making of (Nintendo, Aardman Animations Ltd, €3.99 / £3.59, previously €6.99 / £6.29) 3DS Demo Monster Hunter Generations (Capcom, free) Wii U and 3DS DLC Hyrule Warriors Legends: Link's Awakening Pack (Nintendo, €8.99 / £8.09 or part of dual-system season pass)
  18. This week, from Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Dual Core (Gray Fin Studios, €9.99 / £8.99) - This colourful twin-stick shooter has robots as the protagonists, wrapping a sci-fi story around co-op focused gameplay. Teaming up with others locally or with the AI seems to be integral to getting through stages, and robots in the team can be gradually upgraded with progress. It looks like it has a lot of potential, so we'll process an opinion and bring you a review. Rubik's Cube (Cypronia, €2.49 / £2.24 until 21st July for users who own Cube Life: Island Survival, otherwise €4.99 / £4.49) - The name pretty much describes this one fully; here you have a virtual 3D representation of the famous puzzle to solve. We'll match the sides and bring you a review. STEEL LORDS (nuGame, €14.99 / £10.99) - A title that promises a blend of strategic board-game play with fighting, in principle it sounds promising. We hope this will be an improvement over the disappointing STEEL RIVALS, and will let you know what we think in a review. SPLASHY DUCK (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - The latest budget arrival from RCMADIAX, in this one you use one button to change the direction of the aforementioned duck, trying to avoid hits and collect gold coins. It seems to be another simplistic score chaser, but we'll see whether it can make a splash in our review. Wii U Virtual Console The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - The Nintendo 64 returns to the Wii U with this classic title, which is also available on the 3DS in its remastered form. One of the most critically acclaimed and fondly regarded games of its era, it has a rather dark and peculiar tone, in addition to the challenge of saving the world in the same 72 hour window on multiple occasions. We loved this in our original Wii Virtual Console Majora's Mask review. Nintendo Presents: Style Boutique (Nintendo, €9.99/ £8.99 ) - A chance to see where the fashion-savvy series started on DS, particularly for those that have enjoyed the two most recent entries on 3DS. We'll work on our look and bring you a review. Wii U Retail Download Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE (Nintendo, €59.99/ £49.99) - A title that underwent (it seemed) a slightly troubled development and shifts in focus, it now arrives as a rather colourful and quirky RPG, incorporation Fire Emblem 'mirage' characters within the cast. With a catchy music focus and plenty of more traditional RPG depth this promises much; we'll see whether it delivers on that potential in our review prior to the game's release. Available from 24th June. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Nintendo, €49.99/ £39.99) - Arriving after the 3DS equivalent, this one offers HD takes on 17 different sports, with more intuitive multiplayer options if you want to battle some friends and family for the gold medal. This ersion also encourages friendly competition with 'Duel Events', too - we'll see whether it's a winner in a review. Available from 24th June. Mighty No. 9 (Deep Silver, €19.99/ £17.99) - A game that began as a phenomenal success on Kickstarter but has suffered some setbacks, notably with delays. It's finally ready to blast away on the Wii U, though, and we'll see whether Keiji Inafune and his Comcept team are on form in a review. Available from 24th June. Wii U DLC Minecraft: Wii U Edition Update (Mojang, free) - Will include the Battle mode feature. Available from 21st June. Minecraft: Wii U Edition: Battle Map Pack 1 (Mojang, €2.99 / £2.39) Minecraft: Wii U Edition: Battle Map Season Pass (Mojang, €9.99 / £7.99) Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE - Tokyo Millennium Collection (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE - Mirage Hunter (EXP) (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE - Mirage Hunter (Mastery) (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE - Mirage Hunter (Savage Festival) (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE - 3 Support Quest Set (Nintendo, €4.99 / £4.49) Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE - Atlus Collaboration Costume Set (Nintendo, €1.99 / £1.79) Mighty No. 9 - Ray Expansion (Deep Silver, €4.99 / £3.99) SDK Paint - Slideshows Pack 1 (HullBreach Studios, €0.50/ £0.50) SDK Paint - Slideshows Pack 2 (HullBreach Studios, €0.50/ £0.50) SDK Paint - Slideshows Pack 3 (HullBreach Studios, €0.50/ £0.50) SDK Paint - Total Slideshows Pack (HullBreach Studios, €1.25/ £1.09) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts VoxelMaker (Nostatic Software, €3.59 / £2.79 until 30th June, normally €4.49 / £3.49) Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition (Digital Lounge, €2.35 / £2.15 until 7th July, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Wii U eShop Permanent Discount Devil's Third (Nintendo, €29.99 / £24.99, was €59.99 / £49.99) 3DS eShop Unholy Heights (Bergsala Lightweight, €5.99 / £5.39) - A rather quirky title promising a mix of tower defence and 'apartment management'; monsters are moving into your building so you set rent and make sure they're happy. You then try to repel heroes when they come to slay the monsters. It sounds like it could be fun, but we'll see whether it needs to be evicted in our review. Conveni Dream (CIRCLE Entertainment, €5.00 / £4.50) - Those that are eager smart device gamers will likely be familiar with resource management sim games, and this falls into that broad category. You take charge of a convenience store and try to gradually expand and improve, while also dealing with events and quests. We'll check the expiry date on this one and work on a review. Rubik's Cube (Cypronia, €4.99 / £4.49) - As per the Wii U version, though available on the go and at a lower resolution. 3DS DLC Fire Emblem Fates: Map 8 - Vanguard Dawn (Nintendo, €1.99/ £1.79 or part of Map Pack 1) - If you remember the "Elincia's Gambit" stage from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, this map might seem familiar to you! Standing firm against its waves of opponents could prove to be a tough challenge! 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition (Digital Lounge, €2.35 / £2.15 until 7th July, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains (Atlus, €14.99 / £12.00 until 7th July, normally €29.99 / £34.99) Snow Moto Racing 3D (Zordix AB, €3.99 / £3.59 until 30th June, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Parking Star 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.69 until 14th July, normally €2.99 / £2.49) Quell Reflect (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.79 / £2.19 until 14th July, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Swords & Soldiers 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.29 until 14th July, normally €6.99 / £5.59) Demon King Box (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39 until 14th July, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Space Lift Danger Panic!

  20. Interesting: http://www.shopto.net/digital/nintendo Nintendo have gone down the digital shop route a little differently to Microsoft and Sony. Not only can you buy games directly from the eShop, but you can also redeem codes for specific games - and that means that other retailers can in effect sell things that are linked to the eShop. Until now the only company doing this was GAME, but now ShopTo has started to offer the codes as well - and these can be directly redeemed on the Nintendo site with a couple of mouse clicks meaning that you don't even have to type them in. And to show why this is a good idea since retail competition is a great thing, ShopTo is offering some introductory discounts. Apparently. I can't find them.
  21. Well this came out of nowhere... E3 2014 trailer: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which launched in 2003 and were fan-favourite hits on the Game Boy Advance system. The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a "spectacular new world".
  22. From Nintendolife, all this shite: Wii U eShop Futuridium EP Deluxe (Mixed Bag, €7.99 / £5.99 until 2nd June, then €9.99/ £7.99) - Originally targeting an April release, this futuristic and high-speed title has you flying and shooting through a variety of colourful environments. Think of a faster Star Fox with elements of the Death Star run from the first Star Wars movie, and you're going in the right direction. We'll get cracking on a review. Wii U Virtual Console Mario Slam Basketball (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - Basketball that's about as Nintendo as it gets, throwing in Mario tricks and tweaks along with stylus-based controls. We'll go for a dunk and let you know how this DS title stacks up on Wii U. Wii U DLC LEGO MARVEL'S Avengers: Spider-Man Character Pack (WB Games, free) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (Screwattack Games, €4.99 / £4.49 until 9th June, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Inside My Radio (Seaven Studio, €11.99 / £9.99 until 9th June, normally €14.99 / £12.99) The Quiet Collection (Nostatic Software, €2.69 / £1.79 until 2nd June, normally €4.49 / £2.99) 3DS eShop Infinite Dunamis (KEMCO, €9.99 / £8.99) - This publisher has brought a number of iOS and Android RPG releases to Nintendo's portable, and this is another to add to the list. This one has a bit of a steampunk aesthetic going on, and we'll see whether it's an adventure worth embarking upon in our review. Epic Word Search Collection 2 (Lightwood Games, €7.99 / £5.99) - It's all in the name as this will offer a lot of word search puzzles on the 3DS, which its predecessor did rather well. There are five new categories, and this entry also adds a "flip controls" option to the user interface, which was apparently much requested by those that picked up the first game. We'll search for the right words and bring you a review. Smash Cat Heroes (Tom Create, €2.49 / £1.99) — This is a top-down action title across both screens in which you bust some serious fighting moves; it'll also be possible to upgrade your cat's abilities as you play. It makes for a cute and relatively fun hack and slash experience, which we gave a modest recommendation in our Smash Cat Heroes review. Samurai Defender (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39) - Previously listed on 16th July last year, it's included once again in Nintendo's press release. A side-on castle defence game set in the "Warring States period of Japan". You tap on enemies to attack them with your bowmen, while earning coins and levelling up boosts your abilities and defensive options. We weren't particularly impressed in ourSamurai Defender review. 3DS DLC Fire Emblem Fates - Map 2: Boo Camp (Nintendo, or part of map pack 1) - A test of the nerves awaits in Boo Camp, when the army spends the night on a haunted mountain. Those who survive 'til morning are said to come out stronger for the experience, but is that just another ghost story? Fire Emblem Fates - Map 3: Beach Brawl (Nintendo, or part of map pack 1) - In Beach Brawl, Corrin has been awarded hotly contested tickets to a vacation resort. With only one ticket up for grabs, it falls to the royal retainers to fight for the honour—and leisure—of their lieges. 3DS eShop Nintendo Selects Discounts Available since 16th October 2015, listed once again by Nintendo in its press release. Star Fox 64 3D (Nintendo, €19.99 / £15.99, was €44.99 / £39.99) Nintendogs + Cats (Nintendo, €19.99 / £15.99, was €44.99 / £39.99) Mario Tennis Open (Nintendo, €19.99 / £15.99, was €44.99 / £39.99) Yoshi's New Island (Nintendo, €19.99 / £15.99, was €39.99 / £34.99) Mario Party: Island Tour (Nintendo, €19.99 / £15.99, was €39.99 / £34.99) 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts SteamWorld Heist (Image & Form, €14.99 / £11.24 until 9th June, normally €19.99 / £14.99) Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (Screwattack Games, €4.99 / £4.49 until 9th June, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D Download Version (Zordix AB, €4.99 / £4.49 until 2nd June, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Music On: Electric Guitar (Abylight, €0.99 / £0.90 until 23rd June, normally €1.99 / £1.89) 3DS eShop Permanent Discounts Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan (NIS America, €9.99 / £17.99, was €39.99/ £34.99) Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (NIS America, €19.99 / £8.99, was €39.99/ £34.99) Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (NIS America, €9.99 / £8.99, was €39.99/ £34.99) Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl (NIS America, €9.99 / £8.99, was €39.99/ £34.99)
  23. Party like it's last decade with Mario Strikers and Super Meat Boy! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Super Meat Boy (Blitworks, €11.20 / £10.40 until 26th May, normally €14.00 / £13.00) - After being originally planned for WiiWare before the services' restrictions helped to scupper the idea, Team Meat's iconic title has finally made its way to Nintendo hardware. Brutal difficulty but tight, satisfying platfoming are hallmarks of the title on other platforms, and our imminent review will let you know what we think of this version. Color Symphony 2 (Remimory, €9.99 / £7.99) - A rather intriguing puzzle platformer that's previously made its mark on PC, this utilises changes in the colour of the stage to add and remove platforms and obstacles. The concept looks similar in principle to Runbow, albeit slower paced and with a different emphasis in its gameplay; we'll bring you a review soon. PIXEL SLIME U (RCMADIAX, €2.99 / £2.69) - This budget title utilises a single button for jumping an dodging obstacles, with the green blob in question moving automatically. It's a score chaser with a few twists throughout its 40 levels, but a few issues meant we stopped just short of giving a recommendation in our Pixel Slime U review. Wii U Virtual Console Mario Strikers Charged Football (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - A game that helped solidify the reputation of Next Level Games, and notable for supporting decent online play on Wii (which is unlikely to be supported here), this wacky take on football incorporates typical Mario shenanigans with solid arcade gameplay. We gave this a strong recommendation in our original Mario Strikers Charged Football review. Wii U DLC LEGO MARVEL'S Avengers: All-New, All-Different Doctor Strange Pack (WB Games, €2.99/ £2.50) Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 26th May, normally €49.99 / £39.99) DuckTales: Remastered (Capcom, €5.99 / £4.79 until 26th May, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (Capcom, €4.94 / £3.95 until 26th May, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 19th May, normally €7.99 / £5.99) STEEL RIVALS (nuGAME, €4.99 / £4.49 until 19th May, normally €6.99 / £5.99) 3DS eShop WordsUp! Academy (CoderChild, €2.99/ £2.69) - The 3DS has some solid options in terms of word games, and CoderChild is now making this pitch with a title that offers six different modes and multiple languages, with the added bonus of online leaderboards. We'll use our words to let you know what we think in a review. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Contra III: The Alien Wars (Konami, €7.99 / £7.19) — Originally known in Europe as Super Probotector: Alien Rebels, the U.S. version arrives in Europe once again on Nintendo's portable. It has plenty of manic run and gun action either in solo or co-op play, and is a stand-out action game from the Super NES era. We gave this an explosive recommendation in our Contra III: The Alien Wars review. 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom, €8.99 / £7.49 until 26th May, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D (Capcom, €3.99 / £3.59 until 26th May, normally €9.99 / £8.99) Super Street Fighter IV 3D (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 until 26th May, normally €19.99 / £17.99) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (Capcom, €14.99 / £12.49 until 26th May, normally €29.99 / £24.99) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies (Capcom, €9.99 / £7.99 until 26th May, normally €24.99 / £19.99) Terraria (505 Games, €14.99 / £12.74 until 26th May, normally €19.99 / £16.99) 2 Fast 4 Gnomz (QubicGames, €2.99 / £2.69 until 9th June, normally €4.99 / £4.49) AiRace Speed (QubicGames, €2.39 / £2.10 until 9th June, normally €3.49 / £3.10) AiRace Xeno (QubicGames, €1.69 / £1.59 until 9th June, normally €2.49 / £2.29) Word Search by POWGI (Lightwood Games, €5.99 / £4.49 until 19th May, normally €7.99 / £5.99) Goosebumps: The Game (GameMill, €15.99 / £12.49 until 13th June, normally €24.99 / £19.99) 3DS eShop Demo Witch & Hero 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, free)
  24. This week, some stuff! Woo! And Lost ReavAAHAHAHAhahaHAhahAHAHhAHAH. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge (Nintendo, free) - A rather charming-looking release that gives a free-to-play twist to the Mario vs. Donkey Kong franchise. This time around you need amiibo figures to unlock stages, with each having their own special abilities; Mario can wall jump, Yoshi can eat enemies and so on. We'll get chummy with our amiibo and bring you a review soon. Lost Reavers (Bandai Namco, free) - Available as a beta since 14th April, it'll land in its final form at 10am UK / 11am CET on 28th April. This is a free-to-play co-op action title in which you team up with three others to fight your way to treasures before extracting them from the area. Lots of co-op hacking and slashing is expected, and we'll see how the full experience stacks up in a review. Shütshimi (Choice Provisions, €9.99 / £6.99) - A shoot 'em up in a WarioWare style with extremely short levels and plenty of chaos on screen, this also has co-op and GamePad off-TV play. It's a colourful and bonkers creation from developer Neon Deity Games, and we rather enjoyed it in our review. PixelMaker (Nostatic Software, €2.49 / £1.99) - Having previously brought us VoxelMaker, Nostatic now seems to be taking the same approach to producing pixel art. At a budget price this promises the ability to utilise the GamePad for producing scenes of pixel art, which can then naturally be shared to Miiverse. We'll get creative and let you know what we think in a review. Run Run and Die (EnjoyUp Games, €3.99/ £3.59) - A simple runner designed to make you rage. There are 24 levels in total, some riffing on old consoles, and you simply press a button or tap the GamePad screen to make the auto-running penguin jump. Levels switch angle and you're expected to die a lot, so this one is likely pitching for YouTube fame. We'll p-p-pick up this penguin and write a review. TAP TAP ARCADE (RCMADIAX, €1.99/ £1.79) - This is a compilation download that includes both DON'T CRASH and SPIKEY WALLS. A nice idea, though as we're not fans of the actual included games we weren't particularly positive in our TAP TAP ARCADE review. Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Teslagrad (Rain Games, €10.00 / £9.50 until 18th May, normally €14.99 / £13.99) Secret Files: Tunguska (Deep Silver, €6.49 until 5th May, normally €9.99) Wii U eShop Permanent Discounts Epic Dumpster Bear (Log Games, €6.49 / £4.99, was €9.49/ £7.49) 3DS eShop Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge (Nintendo, free) - The same as the Wii U release, just extra mini courtesy of the smaller screens. Sssnakes (EnjoyUp Games, €1.99/ £1.79) - A modern riff on Snake, the classic game that originated (as a concept) in the '70s but shot to prominence on early Nokia phones. This title aims to add modern touches to the formula of eating and avoiding your own tail, with the ability to 'shoot', multiple snakes on screen and varied environments, along with online leaderboards. We'll sssee what it's like in a review. Castle Conqueror EX (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99) — Already released in Europe last year, this is likely included for a German release. New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console Super Punch-Out!! (Nintendo, €7.99 / £7.19) - The latest Super NES game on the New 3DS is another that's much loved; this successor to the iconic NES original was a true leap in visuals and style, with even more outrageous foes. Colourful and manic, this is certainly a lot of fun - we gave it a strong recommendation in our Wii U Virtual Console Super Punch-Out!! review, and will take another look on New 3DS. 3DS Retail Download Yo-kai Watch (Nintendo / Level-5, €39.99 / £34.99) - This series has become a phenomenon in Japan and arrived in North America late last year, with the anime series and toys also contributing to its success. It'll now try and repeat the trick in Europe, with its twist on battle mechanics and collecting Yo-Kai raising similarities to Pokémon while, undoubtedly, forging its own identity. Though it falls short of beinggreat we gave it a recommendation in our Yo-kai Watch review. Available from 29th April. 3DS eShop DLC SteamWorld Heist: The Outsider (Image & Form, €4.99/ £4.49) - This expansion brings some new story and a mysterious new character, as recently teased by Image & Form. A new playable character, missions, weapons and hats are all promised as part of this expansion, and we'll bring you more as Image & Form makes its announcement. 3DS eShop Temporary Discounts Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (Atlus, €9.99 / £8.99 until 12th May, normally €29.99 / £24.99) World Conqueror 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.59 until 5th May, normally €4.99 / £4.49) Swords & Soldiers 3D (CIRCLE Entertainment, €1.99 / £1.59 until 5th May, normally €6.99 / £5.59) Tappingo 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €2.99 / £2.39) The Legend of Dark Witch - Chronicle 2D Act (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Adventure Bar Story (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.49 / £1.99 until 5th May, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Castle Conqueror EX (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Fairune (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €2.99 / £2.39) Demon King Box (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €3.99 / £3.19) KAMI (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €2.99 / £2.39) Witch & Hero (CIRCLE Entertainment, €0.99 / £0.79 until 5th May, normally €3.99 / £3.19) Mercenaries Saga 2 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.49 / £1.99 until 5th May, normally €4.99 / £3.99) Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D Download Edition (Zordix AB, €4.99 / £4.49 until 5th May, normally €9.99 / £8.99)
