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. Tecmo Bowl hits the Virtual Console on Wii U. Outside of that we have the usual run of sales, a new 3DS theme centered around Mario and the Famicom, and more. Head past the break for all the details and everything that is available for purchase starting this week.
First off, I’m sorry about the sporadic and inconsistent manner of this post for the last few weeks. As I’ve been off work family life has been coming first so I haven’t always had a laptop or internet connection to do it. However, I’m back now so things can get back to normal. So let’s see what’s coming out the week… Continue reading European Releases Week Beginning: 30th August
Yesterday, Kerbal Space Program received a leak on Nintendo’s Youtube page. In it, we learned that the game was coming to Wii U. Well, during the Nindies@Night event at PAX Prime, we learned that Kerbal Space Program is indeed coming to Wii U.
What’s pretty cool about it is how the Gamepad will be implemented. The Gamepad will give you an inside view of the cockpit of the spaceship you built. Also there will be a new first-person Gamepad view and the game will support motion controls. To take it a step further, while there’s no release date set for it yet, it’ll be releasing at the same time on Wii U as it will on the other consoles.
During the recent Nindies@Night event, Shin’en gave some more info on their upcoming futuristic racer, FAST Racing Neo. They confirmed that the game is 2-player and 4-player split-screen, will run at 60 FPS even in split-screen, will have 8-player online, will feature 16-tracks, and we’ll be getting it at the end of the year. They also gave a new trailer for the game. Check it out below.
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.
Nintendo’s PR today was loaded with some information. Along with the release date for Fatal Frame, we also learned a release date for another title that’s already out in Japan and will be out very soon in PAL territories. That game is Devil’s Third and we can now expect to the see the game December 11th in North America. Furthermore, unlike Fatal Frame, Devil’s Third will see both a digital and physical release.
Here’s 30 minutes of online gameplay for your viewing pleasure from NiNTENDOMiNATi0N:
During E3 this year, there were several titles that were missing from Nintendo’s lineup. Among those games was the newest entry in the known survival-horror series, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water. While the game released last year in Japan and has been known to be coming out in Europe for some time now, in North America, fans are left wondering what’s going on.
Well I got some good news and some bad news. The good news is, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water received a release date of October 22 for this year and will be $49.99. It will also be free to start, allowing players to download and play the first chapter and most of the second chapter with no cost.
Unfortunately, that brings us to the bad news. Unlike Japan and Europe, the game is an eShop exclusive and won’t see a physical release. You can either buy the full game directly from the eShop or purchase it in game via DLC. It was speculated last month that the game would be digital only when the eShop symbol appeared next to the game on Nintendo’s site. It seems to be true now.
