Pokemon Rumble has been a staple on my systems. I bought the first one on WiiWare. I bought the one on 3DS. I bought the one on Wii U. They’re mindless fun and my kids enjoy playing them with me. Now, the Pokemon Rumble series is going back to 3DS and this time it’s free-to-play (bum, bum, bum). Pokemon Rumble World will be free to download, but will have in-game purchases. The game will also feature more than 700 different pokemon ranging from Pokemon Red and Blue all the way up to the most recent Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games.
The newest toy pokemon game launches next week on April 8th.

HAL Laboratories is most famous for bringing us Satoru Iwata, Masahiro Sakurai and the Kirby character. Now they’re set to bring you something like you’ve never seen from them before. Their newest game, set to hit the eShop tomorrow, is called BOXBOY! In it you play as a box who as the ability to change his shape to help navigate the games more than 150 challenging levels. It looks incredibly adorable.

Typically in a Fire Emblem game you play as a premade character or a character who’s not necessarily the main focus of the story. Nintendo showed off more details of the newest Fire Emblem game coming to 3DS in 2016. This time you create the character and you are put at the forefront of the story.
You choose one of two paths, Hoshido or Nohr. The path you choose determines your fate and the direction of the story. Hoshido gives you a more traditional experience while the Norh side turns up the difficulty and creates a more complex story to enjoy. Whichever you choose, you are the star.
We’re one week out from the release of Etrian Mystery Dungeon on the 3DS. Atlus wants to get you ready for the release of the game with one more trailer showing off just what you can expect.
They also want to let you know that there is a theme available for the game in the 3DS theme shop. It’s only 99¢.
I don’t know much about this game, but Atlus is doing what Atlus does best. They’re bringing JRPGs to North America. This time it’s a game called Stella Glow. You play as a charater named Alto, a young knight. You must convince a group of Witches through the Regnant Kingdom to join you and fight off the Witch of Destruction named Hilda. You use the power of song to unlock your party member’s full potential.
Whatever it is it looks right up my alley. Atlus doesn’t have any localized assets as of yet to show off, but they provided this trailer that you see. It includes chibi character models, lots of number and crazy spell effects. That’s my kind of game, right there. The game is set for release sometime this year on the Nintendo 3DS.
