Recently, Atlus held a Twitter campaign with a goal of 15,000 tweets for an announcement. Well, it was successful and Atlus revealed Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final. Famitsu later reported that the game was for Nintendo 3DS, is code-named “Godslayer”, and is actually a brand new game taking place in the Shin Megami Tensei IV universe.
This week sees the release of many people’s childhood dream, the ability to create your own Mario levels, with the release of Super Mario Maker. Virtual idol Miku Hatsune gets a release on 3DS.

Shovel Knight is digging its way back into the news! This time, in a more physical manner. As we all know, Shovel Knight is getting a retail release this October on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and 3DS. However, what we just learned during the Nindies@Night event that Shovel Knight is also getting an Amiibo. That’s right, Shovel Knight will be the first indie game character to receive an Amiibo and the Amiibo functions will be exclusive to Wii U.
The holiday season is approaching and with it, we’re beginning to get some release dates. Today’s release date comes in the way of the 3DS RPG and spiritual successor of the Saga games, Legend of Legacy. Atlus has announced that they’ll be releasing the game in North America, October 13th. Unfortunately, there’s no word on a European release.
To take it a step further, Atlus has announced a launch edition for the game. The launch edition includes a 40-page hardcover art book and a 10-track soundtrack CD, all in a 6″ x 8″ box. The launch edition will come at no extra cost. This is great for those who are pre-ordering and definitely sweetens the deal of picking this one up.
The newest NPD data is in and there’s some good news for Nintendo. While the Wii U console sales aren’t doing too well, Wii U software sales are up 10% for the first 7 months this year compared to last year. This is thanks to Splatoon, which has sold 85,000 units in its third month on the market in North America. This brings Splatoon up to 540,000 units in the U.S. and 1.6 million units worldwide.
That’s not all though. The 3DS is up 35% in the first seven months of the year compared to last year. This is thanks to the launch of the New 3DS and several key titles. Hopefully Nintendo can continue to outperform their sales last year during the holidays.
Due to the recent firmware exploitation that allows homebrew and region-free gaming, Nintendo has pulled IronFall: Invasion from the 3DS eShop in both North America and Europe.
IRONFALL Invasion is temporarily unavailable on Nintendo eShop. Apologies for the inconvenience. Stay tuned for more information.

Luckily, the game was a free download and many people who actually wanted to play the game were able to try it by now. Did you check out Ironfall: Invasion? Do you still have a copy on your 3DS?
