The popular manga series Initial D is coming to the 3DS as a free-to-play racing game from SEGA.
Several characters from the series are set to appear in Initial D Perfect Shift Online. So far Fujiwara Takumi, the Akagi RedSuns and the Akina Speed Stars are confirmed.
Races are very simple. The cars run through the tracks on their own, but players will be in control of when to shift gears. By shifting at the correct times, you can achieve a “brilliant driving technique.”
There are still no details on how pay elements will be implemented.
Beta testing for the game is scheduled for next month in Japan.No comments

The 114 block update allows you to access YouTube from Miiverse posts. Tapping on a video link will bring up a prompt asking to open the YouTube app and when you’re done watching the video, you can press X to return to Miiverse.

KAIO: King of the Pirates was the first game announced by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune after leaving Capcom back in 2010 and it was supposed to launch worldwide for the 3DS in 2012.
However, very little was said about the game after that and it just sort of faded from the public eye.
A recent look at the game’s website reveals that KAIO is still in the works and it now has a tentative release date of 2014. Marvelous AQL is still on board as the publisher.

The game returns to Luxendarc, the same world as the first game, but years after the events of Bravely Default.
There will be new locations to visit, though. One of them is Istantarl, nicknamed “Magic University Town” for its advancements in the field of magic.
The mysterious staff-wielding woman we saw when the game was first announced in Jump magazine is apparently called Maganolia Arch, a “Devil Buster who came from the moon.”
Little is known about her past, even her age is a mystery, but according to the Devil King, she is the last survivor of the moon nation.
Gematsu has a translation of Magnolia’s personality:
“She is a sociable eccentric. Delicate, but largehearted. Realistically, a romanticist. An elegant beauty with elusive characteristics, only one thing is certain, she has fierce fighting skills and rescued Tiz Oria.”
