eShop Thursdays: “Rawket Lawnchair” Edition

May 31st, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

It’s a surprisingly busy week this week in the eShop. We have a GBC port, a demo, some kakuro puzzles and a DSi puzzle adventure.

Oh, and there’s Metal Slug 3. It’s always a good week when a Metal Slug comes out.

Heck, it’s a pretty decent week when a downloadable game even shows up for the Wii.

May 31st, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

CTA Digital’s Inflatable Sports Car peripheral, which was originally only available for the Wii, is now compatible with the 3DS. Now you can smugly ask your friends “I play 3DS in a racing car. Do you?

Honestly, E3 should just be cancelled this year because there is no way any other company can beat an announcement this amazing.

Harvest Moon Creator Working On New IP: Project Happiness

May 31st, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Yasuhiro Wada, creator of the Harvest Moon series and CEO of TOYBOX, is hoping to emotionally enlighten people with his new game Project Happiness.

Project Happiness is an IP that is very close to my heart, and stems from years of working on other great titles like the Harvest Moon series,” Wada said in a press release. “Project Happiness is not only meant to be a fun game experience, but I also want it to help expand the player’s view of the world, and make them ponder what their life means to them.”

The game’s title hasn’t been finalized, but long-time Harvest Moon publishers Natsume and Rising Star Games have already both signed on to handle publishing duties for Project Happiness. Natsume will take care of the Americas and Rising Star Games will handle Europe.

Wada and TOYBOX plan to reveal more about the game during E3 next week.

Heroes of Ruin Release Pushed Back to July in North America

May 30th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Square Enix’s multiplayer 3DS RPG Heroes of Ruin won’t be making its original June 26 release date in North America. The developer, n-Space, announced the game would be delayed a few weeks to July 17.

Heroes of Ruin‘s European release is unaffected and is still on track for its June 15 release.

With Diablo III having firmly established its dominance, I’m sure looting fans aren’t too broken up about the delay.

Nintendo Teasing Wii U Launch Titles on Facebook

May 30th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

That new Wii U facebook page Nintendo opened up a few days ago is being put to some use.

In the coming days, the company will slowly reveal some of the games that will launch with the Wii U… whenever Nintendo decides when that is.

Of course, if you don’t feel like guessing, you could always look at that rumored launch lineup from Blockbuster UK database and pretend that it’s the real deal.

Metro: Last Light Not in Development for Wii U

May 29th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Despite showing up in Nintendo’s developer reel at last year’s E3,THQ’s shooter Metro: Last Light will not be coming to the Wii U… At least, for now.

THQ Global Brand Manager Mark Madsen told Digital Spy that while the Metro: 2033 sequel is no longer confirmed for the system, there is the possibility that it could be ported after the company finishes work on the PC, PS3 and 360 versions.

“If it does happen, it won’t sim-ship with the other SKUs, but if the opportunity arises we’ll take a look at it.”

I guess we know one thing we won’t be seeing at Nintendo’s presentation next Tuesday.

Harvest Moon: A New Beginning Coming to North America

May 29th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

After dropping several hints on Twitter regarding their next release, Natsume has officially announced that they are bringing Harvest Moon: A New Beginning to North America later this year.

The game, which launched in Japan last February, is the first Harvest Moon game for the 3DS (not counting the enhanced port of The Tale of Two Towns). Customization plays a heavy role in A New Beginning. Players will be able to change their appearance and even the location of their house.

Still, the biggest selling point: Panda riding.

Nintendo Power Reveals Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate

May 29th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

The latest issue of Nintendo Power gives us our first look at Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate for the 3DS.

Developed by MercurySteam, the same studio that worked on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for the PS3/360, Mirror of Fate retains a few elements from the first game. The hero Trevor Belmont wields his version of Lords of Shadow‘s Gabriel Belmont’s Combat Cross. Players will still be able to upgrade their weapon and unlock new combos to use.

Mirror of Fate will go back to the side-scrolling style of previous handheld Castlevania games. However, it will sport a visual style similar to the 3DS Shinobi game from last year.

It appears that Konami already has another game planned after Mirror of Fate. According to Nintendo Power, the game will have a “climax that will set up the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.”

Expect to hear more about Mirror of Fate soon. The game will be at E3. Maybe we’ll also hear more about how the game will lead into Lords of Shadow 2.
