Review: Bonds of The Skies (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solid Bonds!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Top-bo10

Developed by Hit-Point and published by KEMCO, Bonds of the Skies is a fantastic budget JRPG that will keep fans of the genre entertained for many hours! Is this KEMCO's best game yet? Nope, but it's still a blast to play and here's why:

Topics tagged under 3ds on  1-bond10

Bonds of The Skies has solid gameplay that is unique in various aspects, of course random encounters are in which we rather enjoy every now and then, battles are relatively straightforward, but there are some nuances such as being able to move characters around in your formation mid-battle without using a turn to increase damage given or save yourself if you're low on health by retreating to the back of your formation.

Elements play a HUGE role in the game and quite frankly make the enemies far too challenging for even intermediately skilled players in many instances, especially later in the game. Luckily we previously reviewed the 3DS version so we knew how to tackle the game this time around! Still if you like a serious challenge you should enjoy Bonds of The Skies.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  6-bond10

The story is pretty unique as expected from KEMCO so be prepared for a fun romp through the world of Eil, but don't expect any major plot-twists to catch you off guard this time around. Bonds of The Skies is rather short clocking in at around 30 hours in length so don't expect a 100 hour epic adventure.

The controls are easy to learn as expected from a throwback 16-bit JRPG titles which is nice. We also liked the character and enemy designs in Bonds of The Skies. The soundtrack is quite enjoyable as well and really sets the mood for the game!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  3-bond10

The Playstation Difference:

The gameplay is more-or-less the same as the 3DS version, however most of the bugs are gone in this port. The game is also crossbuy with the Vita version which also happens to be PSTV compatible which is always great in our opinions!

Bottom-Line: With solid gameplay, excellent controls, and a great audio-visual presentation, Bonds of The Skies for the 3DS is a great game that most fans of the RPG genre should thoroughly enjoy, however the difficulty and short length of the game might be off-putting for some. Regardless we give Bonds of The Skies for the 3DS a good level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★½☆ 8.5/10

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Legend10

We've heard your cries for better coverage of The Legend of Zelda series which admittedly we're missing a ton of reviews for, so this year we'll be reviewing every Zelda Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and Virtual Console game that we've failed to review thus-far, but we'll also be publishing a new Zelda-themed exclusive feature each month as well!

What do you think of this announcement? As always be sure to let us know in our comments section below!

Review: The Legend of Zelda ~ A Link To The Past (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Link To The Amazing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Wiiu_s13

Developed and published by Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past returns to the formula that the original game in the series utilized, but adds to it in many ways and all of which are positive improvements! Continue reading our review to find out why we think you should add this retro game to your Wii U Virtual Console collection of games!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Wiiu_s14

The story in ALTTP is by and far better than the one that the original The Legend of Zelda title had and showed that RPG's weren't the only genre that could be epic in this regard! The gameplay while similar to that of the NES original added quite a few changes such as eight-way movement, much more complex equipment, weapon and equipment upgrades, and even an entire second world.

The game is also quite lengthy for an SNES game that's not a JRPG, clocking in at over 20 hours in length! The controls are also easy to learn which is always a good thing! Another good thing is the game runs much better on the Wii U than it did on the original Wii with far less stuttering and frame-rate drops.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Wiiu_s15

The controls in the game are quite good, but we highly recommend using the Wii Classic Controller Pro for the best experience. The game's Off-TV play is executed perfectly with a great balance in its sound-level and ALTTP looks absolutely gorgeous on the Wii U Gamepad.

The audio-visual presentation is also superb with gorgeous cartoonish graphics that are exceptionally detailed for an SNES title, and the animations are fluid with rarely any dropped frames. The soundtrack is also pure bliss with catchy chiptunes and surprisingly good sound effects!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Wiiu_s16

Bottom-Line: With an amazing and lengthy story , excellent gameplay, great controls, and a nearly flawless audio-visual presentation, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past has aged gracefully and is just as fun today as it was when it was released well over 25 years ago! The better frame-rate compared to the Wii Virtual Console release makes this the most definitive re-release of the game thus-far! We give The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past for the Wii U Virtual Console a perfect level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Chronus Arc (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Refreshingly Decent Title!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  CA-3-Chronus-Arc-capture

Developed by Hit-Point and published by KEMCO, Chronus Arc is a solid budget RPG in many ways, but is it worth the cost? We think so, continue reading our review to learn why!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  CA-2-Chronus-Arc-capture

The story in Chronus Arc is relatively straightforward and cliche, however it is still quite enjoyable despite not doing anything in its story that hasn't been done before. The gameplay is also standard JRPG fare which oozes with retro goodness, between it's retro visuals and soundtrack as well as its turn-based battles and simplistic gameplay mechanics that would feel right at home on a home console of the early to mid 90's! The gameplay is superb, but does lose some points for playing it safe and not doing anything unique, but it's still highly enjoyable!

Item collection plays a big role in Chronus Arc and the game does a good job at making the grind to complete your collection quite fun! The controls in the game are also simple and easy to master as expected from a game that emulates the style of  the 16-bit classics we all know and love!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  CA-4-Chronus-Arc-capture

The game can be quite difficult later on though if you've played any major SNES JRPG this will hardly pose any trouble with beating the game! Also Chronus Arc is cross-buy and the Vita version PSTV compatible which is always good in our book!

Visually the game looks great in all of its 16-bit glory and the visual novel style story scenes look nice as well, but it's no SNES Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger so don't expect it to look as good as the best games of the 90's, regardless it still looks nostalgic and should bring back memories of playing the classics of yesteryear.

The soundtrack on the other-hand is hit and miss and more so miss. It's easily the weakest aspect of the game . The sound effects can be quite annoying as well, so unfortunately overall the audio presentation is below average.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  CA-5-Chronus-Arc-capture

Bottom-Line:

With great visuals, excellent controls, and a good story that is fun to see play out, although it's somewhat cliche and predictable as well as gameplay that's great, but doesn't do anything new or unique, Chronus Arc is a worthy budget JRPG that's worth giving a shot if you enjoy JRPG's from the SNES era, but the annoying sound effects and lacklustre soundtrack do hold the game a bit, but overall we give the game a decent to solid level of recommendation!

Review: Machine Knight (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mechanical Madness!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  MK-story

Developed by Hit-Point and published by KEMCO, Machine Knight is a traditional style JRPG that doesn't revolutionize the genre, but is still a solid RPG nonetheless. Continue reading our review to find out why we think the game is worth checking out:

Topics tagged under 3ds on  MK-battle

The story of Machine Knight is much more modern in its settings than any other KEMCO JRPG we've reviewed so far which was a pleasant a refreshing surprise. The game does an excellent job of explaining the lore and technology of the world and to be frank was by far the most enjoyable aspect of the game in our opinions!

The gameplay is standard JRPG fare though the character customization via Machina Boards for each character was somewhat unique and added a bit of depth to the game. The battles are turn-based as expected from a KEMCO game, but overall the battle system was quite enjoyable albeit simple.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  MK-map

The controls in Machine Knight are intuitive and easy to learn, plus the optional touch control features are very nicely done. The game itself is fairly short in length clocking in at under 30 hours in length, but is still well worth its asking price.

The audio-visual presentation is extremely good compared to KEMCO's previous 3DS releases. The game looks like a AAA SNES JRPG and in some instances looks even better than Chrono Trigger visually. The soundtrack is also absolutely sublime and fits the game perfectly. Overall the audio-visual presentation of Machine Knight is nothing short of amazing!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Machine-Knight

Bottom-Line:

With a unique and enjoyable story, solid gameplay, and excellent controls, Machine Knight is a worthwhile experience for any fans of the JRPG genre, while the flawless audio-visual presentation certainly adds alot to the game, Machine Knight's short length definitely is a disappointment. Regardless of that one drawback we give Machine Knight for the 3DS a solid level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

Review: Dragon Sinker (Vita PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Reeling Us In Hook, Line, & Sinker!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2018-020

Hit-Point and KEMCO have always developed and published enjoyable JRPG's that are a great value for their consumers, but Dragon Sinker has a certain appeal that hasn't been seen in their previous console releases, but is that enough to award the game a perfect score? Not quite, but it came very close and here's why:

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2018-021

The story is your typical fantasy fare with three races teaming up to beat an enemy none of them can vanquish on their own, but despite being very cliché it works, and is every bit as good as Final Fantasy III (NES) and Final Fantasy V (SNES). Speaking of those two Final Fantasy titles, Dragon Sinker uses a very similar job system to what those two games possessed which is as enjoyable as it sounds on paper.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2018-022

The battles are turn-based as expected and aren't all that complex, but using effective techniques and magic is paramount later on in the game, especially if you're playing on the hard difficulty setting. The game's world is surprisingly large for a game that's essentially a modern NES title and the game is fairly lengthy as well as it can take players 20-25 hours to beat the main story and an additional 8-15 hours to beat the post-game content!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2018-023

The controls in the game are about as simple as you'd expect so strategy plays a much larger role than your motor skills in this JRPG. One tip we need to share is that you'll want to backtrack and complete every quest in the game as the items and party members/job classes you'll obtain will help out immensely in the post-game content.

Dragon Sinker is also PSTV compatible which is always good news in our opinions!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2018-024

Visually the game is a real treat for retro gamers as not only is the spritework spot-on for an NES era game, Dragon Sinker also has an NES perfect color palette insuring that you'll feel like you've been transported back to the 1980's! Silliness aside, the characters are pretty varied and even change in appearance when you change their job class which is a nice touch.

The soundtrack is also nostalgic and uses genuine 8-bit chip-tunes warts and all and we loved every second of the piercingly brilliant tunes.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2018-025

Bottom-Line:

With splendid gameplay and  a nostalgic story, Dragon Sinker will have you hooked from the very beginning, while the glorious 8-bit visuals and chiptunes will remind you of a simpler and more enjoyable era of gaming! Honestly there is virtually nothing that we can complain about in this game and almost everything is done flawlessly as such we give Dragon Sinker for the Vita a nearly perfect level of recommendation!

Review: Cursed Castilla [Maldita Castilla ~ EX] (Vita PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For The Castle And Glory!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2017-111

Developed by Locomalito and published by Abylight, Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla EX) for Vita is a throwback title that possesses traits and elements of many of the 80's and 90's Arcade greats, such as Ghosts & Goblins, Super Indiana Jones, Rygar, and many more! Is the game worth it though?! We think it's one of the best throwback titles in recent years and here's why:

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2017-112

The gameplay in Cursed Castilla is superb to the max, the game is an action-platformer at its core and is not only a nostalgic trip down memory lane, but also provides superior gameplay to that of the titles the game is clearly inspired by! The game is also HARD, and we mean NES HARD! Expect to die alot before learning how to best tackle the game's many challenging stages!

The game has a ton of enemies and challenging bosses to tackle, there are plenty of power ups to be had, but the most interesting aspect of the game are the hazards. Some things that you wouldn't think dangerous are deadly, such as windmill blades in the background. There's even a stage where massive eggs roll by and you can kill them or dodge them, so you decide to dodge them and suddenly you find yourself surrounded by harpy enemies that hatch from those eggs! This clever stage design is just one example of many which really showcases the developer's talent!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  2017-114

Cursed Castilla is PSTV compatible which is fantastic news! The controls are also easy to learn, but can take awhile to master. The audio-visual presentation is absolutely amazing in a true to history representation of 80's Arcade titles! The chip-tunes are fantastic, the characters and levels look groovy, overall you won't find much better even from the likes of Shovel Knight, though obviously the art-direction is completely different.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Malditacastillaex_463

Bottom-Line:

With fantastic and challenging gameplay, excellent controls, PSTV compatibility, and nostalgic audio-visual presentation, Cursed Castilla for Vita is one game that no Vita owner should miss out on and because of this, we give the game a nearly perfect level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★½ 9.5/10

Feature: Farewell Miiverse ~ Reanfan's Farewell Letter To Miiverse!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bon Voyage Old Friend!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Original

It's been five long years since Nintendo's foray into social media, Miiverse launched on Wii U and it has since ballooned into a massive hit especially after the app was added to the 3DS, and though several restrictions added since 2015 have severely hampered the service, it is still going surprisingly strong in its twilight days leading up to its closure in less than two weeks. What does this mean for you? Well even if you don't use the app if you own a Wii U you will no longer be able to add friends to your friends list, this also means that you'll be unable to make new friends and send in-game PM's in games such as Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate as well. Basically it will mean that you'll have to make due with any current friends on your list for online experiences so I suggest you don't remove anyone from your list if you plan on having any online gaming sessions on your Wii U in the future.

The 3DS is safe from this issue, since its friends list is tied to your handheld's friend code instead of Miiverse. Once Miiverse closes this will also render the Miiverse stage in Super Smash Bros. Wii U & 3DS completely useless which is another major reason why important offline available content shouldn't be tied to features that will be removed in the twilight years of a console. This is just the tip of the ice berg though as nearly 115 Wii U games feature Miiverse support within the game itself such as Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD / Breath of The Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Super Mario 3D World, Hyrule Warriors, New Super Mario/Luigi U, Shovel Knight, etc, etc. All of these games and many, many more will have very cool and unique features stipped from them upon Miiverse's closure which is definitely going to hurt the enjoyment factor of the games, but in some more serious cases will make some content impossible to obtain "I'm looking at you Xenoblade Chronicles X". Yes that's right, the two raid bosses in Xenoblade Chronicles X and their exclusive materials will be lost upon Miiverse's closure which will prevent players from creating a couple of the most powerful Skells in the game as well as some of the best weapons in each job class.

Regardless of the major flaws and drawbacks regarding the closure of Miiverse the social media experience it provided was one of the most unique and intriguing I have ever experienced and the colorful personalities of its myriad of members always put a smile on my face. One of the greatest things about Miiverse was that it was a gathering place of many highly talented and aspiring artists and the beauty of the art graced almost every member's timeline! There were plenty of hilarious moments such as the discovery of the aptly named Luigi Death Stare in Mario Kart 8, the creation of the facepalm-worthy meme character Bigley, and who can forget the annoyed developers talking smack about Nintendo's sudden announcement that Miiverse was going to be closing in November? Bottom line Miiverse was unique and incredible in so many ways and will be missed by our crew.

Review: Culdcept Revolt (3DS Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Revolutionary Party!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

Developed by Omiya Soft and published by Nis America, Culdcept Revolt is a party game that fuses together gameplay elements from trading card games, board games, and other forms of entertainment. The game is actually very similar to Fortune Street which was released on the Wii and became somewhat of a cult hit in the West. So does Culdcept Revolt hold a candle to other party games such as Mario Party or Fortune Street? Continue reading our review to find out!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

This isn't the first time a game in the Culdcept series has been released in the West as the first entry on the Sega Saturn did release outside of Japan. This is a definite step-up from its Saturn predecessor with a ton of new cards, boards, and gameplay features.

The rules can be pretty daunting at first, but the game's single player campaign does an excellent job at easing players into the nuances and intricacies of the game. You basically earn territories and buy and upgrade guardian monsters to guard your territory your opponents have to pay a toll when they land on your territory with an unlucky roll of the dice, however they can opt to attack your guardian and steal your property. There are much more crazy rules and points of interest such as gates that when passed earn you magic "in-game currency" as well which can be used to upgrade various things such as guardians and territories.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

There are other rules typical of card games that apply such as card fusion and evolution which adds another layer of strategy to the game. The multiplayer is as fun as you'd expect from a AAA party game which is a must. The contols are also solid and easy to learn.

The audio-visual presentation is quite good. As you'd probably imagine the graphics are nothing that'll blow your mind, but they're still quite pleasing while the sound-track is very enjoyable and fits the mood of the game like a glove!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, frantically amazing multiplayer, solid controls, and a rather enjoyable audio-visual presentation, Culdcept Revolt for the 3DS is a great game that any fan of the party genre should thoroughly enjoy as such we give the game a great level of recommendation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★¼ 9.25/10

Review: RPG Maker ~ FES (3DS Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A lightweight but intuitive game making engine for all to enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

Created by Kadokawa / Jupiter and published by Nis America, RPG Maker: FES is a lightweight and very flexible game creation engine that's is fun to tinker around with, but how does it compare to its PC counterpart? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to that question and many more!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

The FES game engine allows users to place preset assets and events with ease as well as letting them create maps with a robust world map and dungeon creator. The touch controls allow for easy placement and drawing for the various functions which is incredibly intuitive and gives the engine unparalleled ease of use which as you can probably already tell is the tool's strongest asset. You can even tweak some functions if you have basic knowledge of how game engine coding works such as creating a time of day or weather engine to run in your game or even make an adventure game similar to Zelda without using the built-in default battle system!

This game engine isn't perfect however, as a big flaw it has is a severe lack of assets such as character models, enemies, and objects. There's no way to create your own assets as far as we know which is a shame as that would alleviate much of the issues we have with the software. The biggest issue we have with the software "by a longshot" is that you can only upload a single project at a time for other players to download. This not only limits developers, but has caused a severe dearth of games to be released in the community download area of the app. Again you can purchase additional slots, but most people won't bother which is a very big problem for an app that relies on user-created content.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

There's also a free player app that allows anyone to play games created on the engine free of charge on the 3DS which is nice, but there isn't alot of completed content available to the community, just a bunch of short user-created demo's which won't hold most players attention for long. Bottom line, the developers should have made at least one or two finished games available from the start to showcase what the engine is capable of and to appease the players who are interested in playing rather than creation.

Visually the engine allows players to create games that look like they belong on the Gameboy Advance, which is impressive given the hardware you're working with and the art-style of the pre-made assets are gorgeous in all of their 16-bit glory! The audio is another limitation that the game has as there just aren't many tracks so don't expect to craft a masterpiece in that regard, but what is there is pretty good.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x

Bottom-Line:

With easy to use tools and an intuitive interface RPG Maker: FES is one of the easiest game creation engines we've ever seen so even the most inexperienced developers can craft an epic adventure of their own with this software, however many aspects of the software leave much to be desired, but if you can live with these limitations this software is a real gem albeit a flawed one. We give RPG Maker: FES for the 3DS a decently solid level of recommendation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★¾☆☆☆ 6.75/10

Review: Infinite Dunamis (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Infinitely Solid!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x10

We're huge JRPG buffs here at WiiWareWave so we always jump at the opportunity to review a new JRPG! Kemco are perhaps best known for being prolific contributors of the genre, especially on the 3DS eShop so it shouldn't come as a surprise that they've released yet another JRPG on Nintendo's aging handheld console. Does Infinite Dunamis live up to the solid to great standard of Kemco's other eShop offerings? We think so and here's why:

Infinite Dunamis possesses a steampunk-style world and story and is quite different in that regard to most of Kemco's other JRPG offerings. The battle system is fairly straightforward, however there are a few unique elements that make it feel a little more unique. The level of customization of Estelle, one of the main characters is definitely one of the highlights of the game.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x12

The controls are easy to learn and very intuitive which is always a good thing, in-terms of difficulty, the game is no cakewalk especially later on, but it's not overly difficult either so don't expect to get stuck too often. Visually the game looks decent enough, sure it's not going to win any awards in this regard, but it still looks nice for a budget title! The sound-track on the other hand is superb and fits the mood of the game quite nicely!

Bottom-Line:

With solid gameplay, a fairly unique steampunk story, excellent controls, and a well-balanced level of difficulty, Infinite Dunamis is a rather enjoyable JRPG that fans of the genre should thoroughly enjoy! The visuals are decent enough, but the sound-track is definitely the high-point of the game. If you're a fan of Japanese roleplaying games, you'll be right at home with Infinite Dunamis!

Price: $9.99/£9.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

E3: Nintendo Announced Ever Oasis For The 3DS During Today's Nintendo Treehouse Broadcast!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Build Your Own Oasis City!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Nintendo announced a new IP during their Nintendo Treehouse broadcast this morning! The first title in this new series is called Ever Oasis and it's a cutesy 3DS JRPG that has town building elements, crafting, and gorgeously chibi visuals! At first glance Ever Oasis looks like a family friendly Dark Cloud title which is definitely a good thing in our opinions! For those who don't know Dark Cloud was a JRPG created by Level-5 that was one of the best and most unique JRPG's released on the PS2 and was one of the best PS2 launch titles in our opinions.

In any event the game appears to be coming along quite nicely in its development! Be sure to check-out the trailer of the game above and feel free to leave us your thoughts in our comment section below!

AVG Discussion: Ichigofan On What He Wants To See From Nintendo During This Year's E3!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

More Reveals Please!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Nintendo%203e3%202016_zpswfuxd2ee

Nintendo has made some rather strange choices for E3 this year by doing away with their traditional E3 broadcast, focusing primarily on a single game with some other already known content being shown off. This certainly doesn't mean that we won't get a few surprises along the way, but the key is to keep your expectations in-check.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are some of my hopes for Nintendo @E3 based on their current plans for this year!

Nintendo needs to have a nindie sizzle reel to showcase upcoming indie titles releasing on the Wii U and 3DS.

Show footage of some of the more promising looking indie titles releasing soon including Freedom Planet 2, Soul Saga, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, YIIK, Citadale: Gate of Souls, The Next Penelope, Tumblestones, etc.

Reveal a few new first party eShop esclusives for the Wii U hopefully with something Mario or Zelda related to help flesh-out this year's release schedule!

Localize several Japanese only titles on the Wii U VC to appease the die hard fans and again fill-in the 2016 release schedule.

Release Mother 3 in the West! In 2013 Earthbound aka Mother 2 was released on the Wii U VC, in 2014 Mother 3 was hinted at, in 2015 Earthbound Beginnings aka Mother 1 was released on the Wii U VC, so it'd make sense if Earthbound Endings aka Mother 3 is released on the Wii U VC this E3!

Add GCN, TG-16/CD, and NEOGEO to the Wii U VC service as the final systems to launch on the service "at least on Wii U"!

Announce more DLC for Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros., Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, Hyrule Warriors for Wii U and DLC for games that haven't received any yet such as Mario Tennis, Star Fox Zero, Super Mario 3D World, and Pokkén Tournament.

A demo of Zelda U should be released during E3 immediately after the announcement!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Of course I doubt that all of that will actually happen, but even if only 4-5 of the items on my list are checked that would make for a wonderful E3 surprise! Anyways what do you hope will be announced by Nintendo during this year's E3? Which items on our wishlist do you hope end up happening? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below!

Review: Bravely Second: End Layer (3DS Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Brave Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x30

Developed by Square Enix and published by Nintendo, Bravely Second: End Layer is a massive JRPG for the 3DS and has had quite a bit of controversy regarding the censorship of the game in the west, but have these changes ruined the experience of the game? We don't think so and here's why:

Bravely Second: End Layer and its predecessor before it were a return to the roots of what made early Final Fantasy titles so great and are easily some of Square Enix's best efforts since the PSX era! The game picks up sometime after the ending of the original Bravely Default title in a world that is in the middle of huge changes. Most of the new job classes are given to you as you progress through the game's lengthy story, while the many returning job classes are earned through side-quests which is a great way to handle the job system in our opinions!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x33

The battle system has also been revamped from the first Bravely Default title with several new additions, such as Bravely Second which freezes time during battle, but can only be used once every 24 hours unless you purchase an SP potion using irl money. We aren't fond of that, however the game is easy enough if you're sufficiently leveled even without resorting to using Bravely Second, so we give the feature a free pass.

You can also summon friends' characters in battle to aid you in a pinch, these summons can, at times be extremely useful as you can summon friends who are at a much higher level than yourself early in the game which can allow you an optional free pass if you get stuck in a boss battle that you cannot win at your current level. The game itself isn't all that difficult as long as you aren't terribly under-leveled or facing a unique breed of monsters known as Ba'al's "more about that later" but it's incredibly lengthy and engaging with over 50 hours worth of gameplay and 30 unique job classes!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x31

There's a ton of optional features as well including toy making which can net you a ton of in-game currency later in the game, rebuilding the Lunar Base which unlocks new items and skills, and Ba'al busting which allows you to face unique bosses with a crazy amount of health in a lengthy survival battle. These Ba'al's can be weakened by attacking them with ships on the Lunar Base which takes quite a longtime, however the payoff is worth it in-terms of the monster's reduced health!

The game has been heavily censored in its Western release, however the core of the game is still intact and the main story is still mostly intact in its original form so despite our dislike of major changes occurring during localization, we feel that the game has NOT been changed to the point that it's harmful to the game itself.

The controls in Bravely Second: End Layer are flawless and easy as pie to learn which is always a positive for any game. Visually the game pushes the 3DS to its absolute limits with a gorgeous fully 3D world filled with incredibly detailed and intricate dungeons, and unique characters and enemies! The soundtrack is also among the best we've heard from a Square Enix title in years! What's even more impressive is the fact that the game is almost fully voiced so you'll feel like you're watching an anime series during all of the main story's cut-scenes which is quite a rare feature for a 3DS RPG!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x32

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay and a fantastic story, Bravely Second: End Layer is a force to be reckoned with on the 3DS! That along with the flawless controls and top-notch audio-visual presentation make the game one of the best JRPG's currently available on the 3DS! The major censorship, while unnecessary and annoying in our opinions, has done very little to hurt the overall enjoyability of the game. Bravely Second: End Layer is a game that any JRPG fan who owns a 3DS, should purchase! As for us this game receives a nearly perfect level of recommendation!

Price: $39.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★½ 9.5/10

Chrono Dragon Fantasy VII Cross!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Dragon10

Muteki Corporation and Choice Provisions have announced that their retro-inspired JRPG Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice will finally be hitting the Wii U and 3DS eShops in North America next week! The price-point for the game hasn't been confirmed yet. The original Dragon Fantasy game titled The Volumes of Westeria released last July on the Wii U and 3DS eShops and was very reminiscent of the early NES Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior games. Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice , however is more reminiscent of SNES classics such as Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana with an active battle system, group techniques, etc.

Here's the official trailer for the game:


Here's the official overview of the game:

Official Overview wrote:Join Ogden and the heroes of Westeria in this classic JRPG epic, Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice. Travel through the frozen wastelands of Tundaria, experiencing action-packed battles without random encounters, using spatially aware Area-of-Effect attacks and power moves.

Travel by pirate ship, defending against enemies in thrilling ship-to-ship rock monster combat! Defeat oncoming hordes of demons and huge bosses that threaten the entire world of Dragon Fantasy!

Review: Witch & Hero II (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Defend My Witch!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x22

Developed by Flyhigh Works and published by Circle Entertainment, Witch & Hero II is a fantastic tower defense / roleplaying game that is great fun in small doses, but is it fun enough to keep you coming back for more? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to that question!

The gameplay in Witch & Hero II is a unique blend of roleplaying and tower defense with a bit of strategy genre thrown into the mix! Your hero must run into enemies to damage them, YS series veterans will feel right at home with this formula. Your hero is immortal so he needs to protect the fragile witch who has extremely low defenses or it's game over! On the flipside the witch has incredibly powerful and useful magic that can help clear out enemies so careful strategy is key to beating each of the game's many stages! The game is separated into stages and though it starts off easy it quickly becomes incredibly challenging!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x23

Witch & Hero II is a fairly short game and can be beaten within six hours or so, but it's great fun! A little warning though, you might want to limit your gameplay sessions as the game can get very repetitive during longplays of the game. In-terms of controls they are very solid and quite intuitive in this game which is always a good thing!

Visually Witch & Hero II looks nice in a very retro way with excellent 8-bit backgrounds, dungeons, characters, and enemies the game just oozes with retro goodness! The soundtrack is also decent, but not all that memorable, regardless it gets the job done!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x24

Bottom-Line:

With unique and solid gameplay, excellent controls, and gorgeous 8-bit visuals, Witch & Hero II is a fantastic blend of unique ideas that are decidedly refreshing, however an unmemorable soundtrack and repetitive gameplay hold the game back from true awesomeness. Nonetheless Witch & Hero II is still a solid title that we recommend to any fans of RPG's and the strategy genre!

Price: £3.19/$3.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

Review: Justice Chronicles (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solid Justice!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  N3ds_j10

Developed by Hit-Point Co. and published by Kemco Games, Justice Chronicles is a fairly unique JRPG that will likely entertain you for many hours, but how does it fare to the classics in the genre, such as Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, etc.? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to that important question!

The gameplay is quite enjoyable and pretty straightforward for a JRPG at first-glance, however the beast partner system really adds a unique spin to the formula. The game also possesses a fantastic crafting system and an incredibly unique dual-layered world that'll draw you in, as well as a captivating story that'll keep you coming back for more! The game is also quite lengthy with over 40 hours of gameplay plus plenty of side-quests so don't expect to beat this game in only a few days!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  N3ds_j11

The controls are very intuitive and easy to learn and the optional touch-screen features are a nice touch! The game can be quite difficult, especially during the second half of the game so be prepared for a serious challenge!

Visually the game looks decent enough, it won't blow you away, but it does have a nice art-direction and the world itself looks quite unique which is a definite positive. On the audio side of things, the game is good. The sound effects are pretty basic, but the soundtrack is very good. You won't find yourself humming any of tunes in the game, but we still enjoyed the music quite a bit!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  N3ds_j12

Bottom-Line:

With solid to great gameplay, flawless controls that are easy to learn, as well as fantastic features such as item crafting and the partner beast system Justice Chronicles is definitely worth its price especially for JRPG fans, it also has a fairly good audio-visual presentation which helps the game's overall score! So ultimately we give Justice Chronicles a very good level of recommendation!

Price: $9.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10

eShop 72: April 7th - April 10th 2016!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Week of Highly Rated Games!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Eshop%2072%20April%207th%20-%20April%2010th%202016_zps6qfqjhog

eShop 72 focuses on the latest download releases, both new and classics, appearing on the Nintendo eShop in North America. Showing you how well they’re doing during the first 72 hours on the service from Thursday, April 7th to April 10th at 9:00am PST.

This week has a few good releases, however in our honest opinions the votes seem rather suspect as all six games have received at least 4 stars which many of the top-tier games haven't even reached within the first 72 hours on the service. Nonetheless here's the list of games that were released this week!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wii U eShop Releases

Lovely Planet:

Tiny Build Games' FPS, Lovely Planet is off to a great start as it has managed to receive a rating of ★★★★½ stars with a total of three votes in its first 72 hours on the Wii U eShop service!

Epic Dumpster Bear:

Log Games' surprisingly enjoyable platformer Epic Dumpster Bear has had a fantastic first 72 hours on the Wii U eShop with a whopping ★★★★★ rating with three total votes!

Emojikara ~ A Clever Emoji Match Game:

Intropy Games' bizarre emoji puzzler is also off to a puzzling start with a ★★★★★ rating with one vote in its first 72 hours on the Wii U eShop service...

Super Robo Mouse:

RCMADIAX's Action title Super Robo Mouse has squeaked in with a rating of ★★★★☆ with a total of three votes in its first 72 hours on the Wii U eShop service.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wii U Virtual Console Releases

Game & Watch™ Gallery 4 (GBA)

Nintendo's fourth Game & Watch Gallery title has stormed onto the Wii U eShop with a rating of ★★★★★ with a whopping eight votes during its first 72 hours on the service which is quite impressive!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3DS eShop Releases

Doll Fashion Atelier:

Teyon's bizarre doll dress-up title, Doll Fashion Atelier has done surprisingly well on the 3DS eShop during its first 72 hours on the service with a rating of ★★★★½ stars with three total votes...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Review: Blast 'Em Bunnies (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Borderlining Spoiled...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x19

Developed and published by Nnooo Studios, Blast 'Em Bunnies is an arcade shooter that can be fun in short bursts, however a lack of content, wonky controls, and repetitive gameplay hold the title back from true greatness, however that doesn't mean that the game is a total lost cause, and here's why:

The gameplay in Blast 'Em Bunnies is straightforward, you must shoot the enemies who just so happen to be adorable bunny rabbits. The level of difficulty can range from easy to moderately difficult which is to be expected from a title of its nature, however the game has several major flaws which hurt the game's overall score...

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x20

The gameplay is very repetitive as there just isn't much variety to the game's one stage, "that's right one stage" if you want to play additional stages you must purchase the paid dlc packs. The lack of content really hurts the replay value of the game. The controls are also incredibly wonky and very sensitive which makes playing the game a serious chore.

The audio-visual presentation on the other hand is really nice with adorable enemies and a colorful and cheery stage design the game truly looks great, while the sound effects and music are also quite fun and cheery!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x21

Bottom-Line:

With repetitive gameplay that can be fairly enjoyable for short periods of time and an excellent audio-visual presentation, Blast 'Em Bunnies had the potential to be a solid 3DS eShop title, however poor controls and an utter lack of content really hold this game back and negatively effect our opinion of Blast 'Em Bunnies. It can be fairly fun for short bursts so we give the game a poor recommendation rather than a bad level of recommendation.

Price: £2.99/$4.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆ 4.5/10

AVGD: A Closer Look At The New My Nintendo Rewards Service...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Counting Coins!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Closer%20Look%20At%20The%20New%20My%20Nintendo%20Rewards%20Service..._zpsgwsobhau

My Nintendo has launched today and there already seems to be disparity between the various regions that the rewards program has launched in. Europe seems to earn more gold coins for digital purchases than any other region and also has the best discount coupons rewards worth 20-50% off of specific Wii U and 3DS titles. You can also obtain platinum coins through various secret missions which helps boost your platinum coins rather fast!

North America on the other hand earns the smallest amount of gold coins for purchases with the two highest coin values being unobtainable because they can only be earned if you purchase games that are more expensive than anything currently available on the eShop in the region...

North America also appears to be getting shafted as far as the discount coupons are concerned as the discounts are only worth 15-30% off of specific Wii U and 3DS titles which is substantially less than what Europe's discount awards offer and they are in some cases actually more expensive than the superior European discounts...

Topics tagged under 3ds on  My_nin10

Another serious issue is that certain games that Nintendo of America has withheld from releasing on the North American Wii U Virtual Console service are now being added as My Nintendo exclusive rewards e.g. Donkey Kong Country: Returns which feels very underhanded and clearly is a push to "force" people to purchase their games digitally in the region.

And the final disparity between regions is that the North American My Nintendo service does not have any of the bonus secret missions to earn extra platinum coins which means that it'll take longer for Americans to earn those coveted platinum coins...

What do you think of these differences that My Nintendo possesses between the various regions? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below...

Review: Sadame (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Atmospheric Bloody Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x15

Developed by Mebius and published by Rising Star Games, Sadame is an action-packed RPG which feels somewhat similar to classics such as the Mana series, but with a much darker story! Does Sadame live up to the classics that defined the action-RPG genre? Continue reading our review to find out!

The gameplay in Sadame is extremely fast-paced and is definitely a part of the hack 'n slash sub-genre of RPG's. You can choose one of four character classes each with unique skills and techniques. These characters essentially share the same story, so don't expect four unique campaigns.

The several locations in the game are populated by many normal enemies and massive boss monsters that'll test your skills and even after you beat the game there's more to do. Overall the gameplay and story are fairly solid, though the latter takes a backseat to actual gameplay in this particular title! Also for some reason the game is really addictive and we haven't been able to stop picking up where we had previously left off on a daily basis!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x16

The controls are quite solid and as bizarre as this may sound even on a 2DS the game seems to possess some sort of a faux 3D effect though admittedly it's only slightly noticeable.

The game's visuals are excellent, sure they won't blow players away, but the art-direction is superb with very detailed characters and enemies as well as fantastic visual effects! The music is fairly memorable as well with some great tracks along with a few "meh" ones, but overall the audio-visual presentation is great!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x17

Bottom-Line:

With solid gameplay that's highly addictive, excellent controls, and a great audio-visual presentation Sadame is a great 3DS game for fans of action-RPG's and as such we give the game a great level of recommendation!

Price: $14.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10

Graphite Lab's upcoming sci-fi action-shooter Hive Jump will not include online multiplayer in the Wii U version of the game according to an interview with the developer at the Fragments of Silicon podcast. Here's a small fragment of the interview:

Interview Overview wrote:“That’s something where we felt like the platform certainly is kind of a party platform. We love playing games on Wii U in kind of party mode. So we don’t have online in the plans for Wii U, but it will be for PC.”


The Wii U version of the game will still possess local four player co-op as well as Wii U exclusive features such as using the Gamepad as a map, Off-TV-Play and eventual Amiibo support! We'll let you know even more about the game as new details become available!

Mobot Studios has just released their official Wii U release trailer for The Deer God meaning that the game shouldn't be too far away from releasing on the eShop! Be sure to checkout the trailer above!

Thomas Happ Games has announced that their critically acclaimed Metroidvania title Axiom Verge will be hitting the Wii U eShop later this year, with a N3DS version following at a later date! Here's a brief overview of the game:

Game Overview wrote:Axiom Verge is a retro-style action-platform-exploration game done in a 16-bit style and was heavily influenced by games like Metroid, Contra, Blaster Master, and other classics, but with very modern design sensibilities.

It also gives you power over glitches like those found in classic games, allowing you to scramble enemies, corrupt environments, and enter hidden areas as you explore this hostile alien world and uncover your role within it.


The game will feature over eighty enemies, forty weapons, nearly a hundred upgrades, and over one thousand rooms! We'll let you know more about this title at a later date!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Crystalline Green and Drop Dead Interactive have teamed up to bring the rage-inducing arcade-style indie title Gear Gauntlet to Wii U! The game is a maze-like arcade game where players must avoid obstacles and other hazards and did we mention just how rage-inducing the game can be? It looks like the game will be hitting the Wii U eShop later this year!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Renegade Kid's Jools Watsham released a rather brilliant commercial for his upcoming Wii U and 3DS eShop title Mutant Mudds: Super Challenge! The game releases this Thursday in North America and PAL regions! Be sure to checkout the commercial above!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Mixed Bag Games has announced that their upcoming Starfox inspired Wii U eShop pseudo 3D on-the-rails shooter Futuridium is being sent to Nintendo's QA as early as next week and might be released as soon as April of this year!

eShop 72 focuses on the latest download releases, both new and classics, appearing on the Nintendo eShop in North America. Showing you how well they’re doing during the first 72 hours on the service from Thursday, March 10th at 9:00am, to Sunday, March 13th at 9:00am PST.

This week is kind of a mixed bag with most games receiving few votes if any, however all but one of the games that were actually rated received a four or more stars rating! It has been a longtime since we've done these eShop 72 articles and our staff member who created this exclusive feature series has left our staff so out of respect we'll try to change the format as much as we can while making sure that the feature retains its original purpose!

So without further ado here's the eShop 72 feature that you've all been waiting for:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wii U eShop:

Grumpy Reaper:

EnjoyUp's latest arcade-style game for the Wii U isn't doing so hot, in-fact it's doing incredibly poor with a ★☆☆☆☆ rating from only a single user in North America. Our reviewer @SKTTR has cited serious game-freezing bugs as being prevalent in the game, which likely accounts for it's poor rating.



Star Ghost:

Developed by Squarehead Studios and featuring a rocking sound-track by David Wise it should come as no surprise that Star Ghost is doing quite well so far on the Wii U eShop with a ★★★★☆ rating from 5 users! We are currently reviewing the game and can confirm that it's a great title!



Jewel Quest:

Developed by iwin Games Jewel Quest is a highly praised match-three puzzler that has been released on many platforms already, but despite its positive history, the game has failed to receive a single rating on the eShop in its first 72 hours on the service...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wii U Virtual Console:

Mega Man Battle Network 6 - Falzar (GBA):

The sixth generation of Capcom's legendary Mega Man Battle Network series for the Gameboy Advance hit the service in North America this week and despite being a AAA third party Virtual Console title the Falzar version of the game has failed to receive a single rating from any users in its first 72 hours on the service...



Mega Man Battle Network 6 - Gregar (GBA):

The sixth generation of Capcom's legendary Mega Man Battle Network series for the Gameboy Advance hit the service in North America this week and despite being a AAA third party Virtual Console title the Gregar version of the game has only received a single rating in the first 72 hours on the service, but at least the game currently has a ★★★★★ rating!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wii U Apps:

Rhapsody:

Napster's hit online radio service Rhapsody has finally arrived on the Wii U eShop this week! The app requires a $9.99 a month subscription and gives you access to over 32 million songs and hundreds of thousands of online radio stations! In the first 72 hours on the service Rhapsody has received a ★★★★☆ rating from 7 users!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3DS eShop:

Blast 'Em Bunnies:

Nnooo Studios arcade-shooter Blast 'Em Bunnies is yet another game that was released on the eShop this week that has failed to receive a single rating from any users. That's not to say it's a bad game, but it's definitely an off week on the eShop...



Bravely Second: End Layer Demo - The Ballad of the Three Cavaliers:

Square Enix's demo to the sequel of their critically acclaimed 3DS RPG Bravely Default is by far the highest rated game on the eShop this week as it has received a ★★★★★ rating from 51 users in its first 72 hours on the service!

Two Tribes has officially announced that they're departing the game development industry and that their upcoming multi-platform side-scrolling shooter Rive will be releasing in September as the studios' final title. The game will also be hitting the Wii U eShop in September. Here's the reason why the crew over at Two Tribes is calling it quits:

Two Tribes wrote:
Dinosaurs:

As said, we've been working in the games industry since early 2000, making us dinosaurs, old farts, grandfathers or whatever you want to call us. This is great, because we've got a lot experience, but it also means that we act like a typical grandfather: slow and totally unaware of what is hot and what is not.

Don't get us wrong: we absolutely love making games, and we strongly feel that we're good at making them. However, ask us anything about new industry developments, and often a big question mark will appear above our heads.

For example, we are used to working with our own proprietary engine. It's technology that works great for us, but is by no means competitive with tools like Unity or the Unreal Engine. And then there are monetization strategies like free-to-play. We only know, and feel comfortable working with, the traditional model of full-priced games.

The same goes for marketing: we know how to make a decent trailer and send out a press release… but have no clue how to get traction on YouTube and Twitch.

Wrapping up:

Long story short (grandfathers like to digress!): when running a company, you need to be on top of your game, not just in terms of the product you're making, but business-wise too. And we just aren't on top of the games business anymore.

Therefore, it makes sense to focus our attention elsewhere, perhaps even outside the games industry. We simply don't know yet; but we do know that RIVE is going to be our parting gift to you and we're making damn sure it's going to be an awesome one!


It's such a shame that such a longtime competitor in the indie scene is calling it quits, but such is life, we wholeheartedly wish their team the best in their future endeavors!

Visual Novel x Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Circle Entertainment has announced through a PR email that their 3DS title Parascientific Escape: Cruise In The Distant Sea will be hitting the North American and European 3DS eShops tomorrow! The game looks to be a visual novel with heavy adventure genre elements throughout the game! Here's the official overview of the game:

Overview wrote:Hitomi Akeneno is a 16 year old high school student with a little secret - she has not one, but two psychic powers.

After receiving an invitation, she boards a luxury cruise ship with her friend, Chisono Shio. As soon as she enters a suite room, a loud explosion sounds…and she finds herself stuck, unable to get out. Is this an accident? Or something far more sinister…?

The only way to find out is to escape, with the help of her powers.

WTF: Bravely Second's Western Release Will Have A Completely Linear Story...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Censorship Gone Wild...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Bravel10

Nintendo is no stranger to censorship, be it first party or third party titles, however Bravely Second's western release is the most radical and facepalm-worthy act of censorship that we have EVER seen in a video game in North America or Europe. Basically every decision you make in the western version of the game leads to the good outcome regardless of your choices in the game. This kind of censorship makes absolutely no sense and will likely destroy any chance the game had of selling well in the region, and frankly we can't blame the gamers for boycotting the game in this particular case as it is such an extreme and game-breaking level of censorship.

Anyways what do you all think about this massive change in the western release of Bravely Second? Will you still purchase the game or will you be boycotting it? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below!

Review: The Legend of The Dark Witch (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Bewitching Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x10

Developed by Inside System and published by CIRCLE Entertainment, The Legend of The Dark Witch is a Megaman-style action-platformer that faithfully recreates the intense action and enjoyable gameplay formula of the early Megaman titles and adds a few of its own twists to give the game a unique feel! Does this mean that the game surpasses the early Megaman entries in-terms of quality? Not necessarily, however the game is still fantastic in its own right and here's why:

The gameplay is straightforward for any Megaman fan as you basically play through six stages of action platforming, shooting your way past many weaker enemies and at the end of each stage you'll face-off against a powerful "master" of the stage and if you beat her, you'll receive her power! Certain powers are effective against certain masters just like in the Megaman series!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x13

There are some definite tweaks to the classic Megaman formula as enemies will drop butterfly looking orbs that you can collect and use to enhance your abilities and weapons! The game also features a neat minigame that can be quite enjoyable so we won't spoil it for you!

The controls are quite intuitive and very easy to learn and the 3D effects are either very weak or nonexistent, we honestly couldn't tell which was the case.

Visually the game is gorgeous, as are the adorable anime-style girls that you can play as, and face-off against a.k.a. the masters! The backgrounds in the stages and level design are also magnificent! The soundtrack is also absolutely incredible in The Legend of The Dark Witch and is possibly its strongest asset which is saying alot given the overall quality of the game!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  300x14

Bottom-Line:

If you are a fan of cute anime girl protagonists and antagonists, as well as fantastic Megaman-style action-platforming, The Legend of The Dark Witch is quite possibly the best 3DS eShop title that fills those two checkboxes! The flawless controls, and picture-perfect audio-visual presentation make this game the perfect choice for fans of the genre and because of this we give the game a near perfect score!

Price: £3.49/$3.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★☆ 9.5/10

Review: Alphadia (3DS eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solid Energi!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under 3ds on  299110

Developed by ExeCreates and published by Kemco, Alphadia is the first title in the fairly popular Alphadia series which up until now has mostly been released on mobile devices with the exception of Alphadia Genesis which released on the Wii U eShop a couple of years ago! We gave Alphadia Genesis for the Wii U an excellent score in our review of the game which can be viewed by clicking on this link, but does Alphadia live up to the fairly high bar that Alphadia Genesis set? We don't feel it does, but it's still a solid game in our opinion and here's why:

In-terms of the story, everything's fairly simplistic in a retro-RPG sort of way and for the most part nothing will really surprise you as the plot-twists are relatively weak in this game, but that being said there's still alot of substance to the plot so it isn't all bad. Perhaps the fact that we played Alphadia Genesis first might have made us aware of plot-twists beforehand so it may not be the game's fault.

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Alphad11

The gameplay is fairly solid and feels like a classic SNES RPG such as Final Fantasy IV, V, or VI with excellent turn-based battles, a fairly large world map, and some devilishly lengthy and challenging dungeons. The battles start off way too easy for the first 10-15 hours of the game, but once you gain access to the ship things become incredibly difficult.

The game is also fairly lengthy and will likely provide newcomers with 30-40 hours of gameplay and can take upwards of 50 hours if you're a completionist!

Visually the game looks nice! The 16-bit graphics in battles, towns, dungeons, and the world map are excellent, while the hand-drawn anime-style cutscenes look superb. The special effects can look good at times, while at others they look fairly cheap. The sound effects in the game are decidedly retro and fit the game well while the soundtrack is fantastic and will really immerse you into the game!

Topics tagged under 3ds on  Alphad10

Bottom-Line:

With a good story that's fairly predictable if you've already played Alphadia Genesis for the Wii U, excellent gameplay with an unbalanced difficulty level, and a mostly superb audio-visual presentation, Alphadia is far from perfect, but is still a very solid title if you're a fan of JRPG's. And as such we give the game a solid level of recommendation!

Price: £8.99/€9.99/$9.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7.5/10
