Yesterday, Nintendo started selling the Circle Pad Pro accessory for the 3DS XL on their online store after just listing it 2 days prior. There are no plans to bring it to retail this time, even though the one for the 3DS was a Gamestop exclusive.
EarthBound is finally Wii U bound, arriving on the Virtual Console at some point. Nintendo says they will unveil the release date later in the year. See guys, years of begging can eventually pay off (as long as they don’t pull what the did for the Wii release…)!
Want to snag the demo for The Last of Us early? Then pick up a copy of God of War: Ascension and you’ll be able to. The demo will be available May 31.
Exploring takes time and careful attention to detail. Tomb Raider‘s immersive world easily puts it in the running for game of the month.
Japan gets a blessing of awesomeness tomorrow in the form of two downloadable Virtual Console titles. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons will be available tomorrow for download. Only it’s Japan only…for now. No word on if this will be hitting North America, but my guess is that it will. The Zelda series is popular over here as well. *cough*Nintendo*cough*
I’m not sure if they will run in 3D like Link’s Awakening DX, but seeing as how that was a “Virtual Console” release as well, I imagine they are.
Gaijin Games’ Bit.Trip Presents…Runner 2 released today for Wii U and Steam. It will be out tomorrow on Xbox Live Arcade and March 5th on PlayStation Network (Vita and PS3).
The Witness, new game from the creator of Braid, will be a PS4 exclusive when it initially launches.
Today is February 20th and we all know what that means! Sony has some big announcements planned today, which we all assume will be about the PS4/Orbis. As we find out, we’ll keep you updated!
So remember a while back when Sega posted a teaser image of “Stick Canyon” (a level from NiGHTS) on their Facebook page? You may not, but they did. Anyway, the teaser image had to have meant something was in the works for the 1996 Saturn title. They had announced they were planning on doing HD re-releases of Dreamcast titles such as Jet Set Radio, so could it be one of those? Was it a new level for the upcoming Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed? Who knew? Continue reading
Nintendo has announced today that Pokemon Black and White 2 will officially be headed to our shores on October 7. Nintendo also announced an app for people playing the games on a 3DS called Pokemon Dream Radar which allows 3DS users to catch and transfer Pokemon using the camera. Seems legit. No announcement on the price of the app (well, 300 yen) but I’m sure it won’t be much.
Just when you thought the system couldn’t get any bigger, it does! In a Q&A session with Famitsu, Nintendo announced that the new, larger 3DS XL model will get it’s own Circle Pad Pro. No price or date was said, or that if it was coming to the US, but I would think it’ll be on or near the release date of the system for around the same price. Also, Nintendo will be launching a charging cradle for the XL as well, only it won’t come with the system. It’ll be sold for $15 separately. Continue reading
Announced today in Japan during a video interview with Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata, New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be releasing for the 3DS this August in Japan (and possibly North America too!). Continue reading
Along with the announcement of New Super Mario Bros. 2 for 3DS later this year, Nintendo also announced a little surprise for all you Kirby fans out there: a collection of various Kirby games on a disc for Wii that will release later this year as a part of Kirby’s 20th anniversary. Continue reading
Ever since it’s announcement back in 2007, Fez has been a game I knew I would get on day one. And after 5 long years of waiting, it will finally be released tomorrow. Fez is a 2D/3D platformer that allows you to shift the perspective of the level to find ways to climb up obstacles and jump to different platforms, similar to that of Super Paper Mario. As Gomez, you set out on an adventure to collect cubes that have been scattered across the land to prevent the universe from collapsing on itself. That’s pretty much the extent of my knowledge of the game, but you can expect a full review soon. Like I said before, Fez releases tomorrow (April 13) for Xbox Live Arcade only. There are rumors of the game releasing on other platforms in the future, so if you can’t play it now, don’t fret. I’m sure a PS3 and Steam version will be out sooner than later. We all know how exclusive non-first party games are these days… Continue reading
