The developer has been hard at work on a number of games recently. Working closely with Keiji Inafune and his company to create Mighty No. 9. They took time to create their own title called Azure Striker Gunvolt that released for the 3DS last year. Today, via Twitter, the company announced that they are working on a sequel to that game.
There are no real details about the game available as the announcement sent people running to their site and their servers crashed. As of now they’re still down, but they did mention that when their website comes back online they have a second Gunvolt related announcement to make.
Check back here. We’ll keep you updated on all the Gunvolt news as it happens.
The 2D side-scrolling skateboarding platformer OlliOlli that’s been available on a number of other platforms like PS4 and Vita is making its way to the 3DS and Wii U, courtesy of Roll7 and Curve Digital. The publisher announced the game over Twitter and even included a nice bonus announcement. The game is going to be cross-buy, which is a first for a third party developer here in the States.
Nintendo recently announced that Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars would be the first cross-buy game from them. In Europe last year players could get a download code for Squids Odyssey on the Wii U if they bought the 3DS version of the game.
I reached out to Curve to ask if they would be giving out a download code for one version of the game or if it would be through some other method. As soon as I hear back from them I’ll let you know. It’s exciting that we’re finally starting to see cross-buy games on Wii U and 3DS. The feature has been a part of the Playstation Network for a while now and it’s been incredibly well received.
Muteki and Choice Provisions, formerly Gaijin Games, have teamed up and announced that Dragon Fantasy Book I and Dragon Fantasy Book II are coming to Wii U, 3DS, and Steam under new names.

Both games were originally on iOS, Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita. No release date has been given for either but definitely keep a look out for them.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is right around the corner with a scheduled release for April 2 in Europe and Japan and April 10th in North America. The game will have a file size of 3.6 GB so for those looking to get the game digitally, be warned now, you’ll need to set aside some space. Unfortunately, the game won’t feature the original Japanese audio and only feature the English dub, which isn’t too bad considering how awesome the English voice over is.
Many gameplay videos are beginning to surface for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. Due to spoilers though, I’m going to avoid most videos and link in one specifically from Eurogamer as they’re at the beginning and aren’t spoiling anything.
This is a great chance for those who own the New 3DS to jump in and try out this game. Admittedly, I went a bit overboard with my playthrough, spending over 290 hours in it on Wii. But this does go to show just what type of beast of a game this is. There’s near 60 hours to be had in the main story alone but once you go off doing side quests, fighting hidden bosses, and looking through every nook and cranny of the world and systems, you can get way more out of it. Are you really feeling it?
A new entry in the DBZ Botuden series, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Botuden, is on the way to Nintendo 3DS! The game is being made by Arc System Works, fighting game vets and creators of Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. There will be over 100 characters from the DBZ franchise (though it isn’t confirmed if they will all be playable) and will have both 1 on 1 battles and team battles. The game has a Summer 2015 release date for Japan, no word on a European or North American release at this time.
This one really excites me as I used to play this series with friends on the SNES, PS1, and Saturn back in the 90’s. Admittedly, I didn’t keep up with DBZ games as much by the time PS2, GC, and Xbox hit the scene and never really played the handheld games. This also means I never played Dragon Ball Z: Super Sonic Warriors, Arc System Works other pair of DBZ games, but I’m more then willing to give this one a try.
Luckily Namco Bandai Games has a pretty good track record in localizing games, in specific DBZ games, though some games we’re still hoping get localized. Are you looking forward to this one too?
