Attack On Titan Stomping Onto 3DS In North America May 12th; Delayed In Europe

AttackOnTitanTheme3DSOver the past few years, Attack on Titan has grown to become one of the most popular anime series’ worldwide. When news came out that an Attack on Titan game was going to 3DS it was only a matter of time that the game would get localized. Well a month ago, in the April Fools Direct, it was revealed that Atlus would be localizing Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains and the game would arrive sometime in May. Now we have an official date. Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains will be terrorizing your 3DS May 12 in North America. The game will be sold via the eShop for $39.99 and there will be a free 3DS theme available.

Unfortunately, there’s some bad news. The game has been delayed in Europe due to copyright issues. Atlus is doing everything in their power to get the game out though, so don’t worry, it’s still coming. In Europe the game will be titled “Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains” and the free theme will also be available. Atlus will give a release date as soon as they can for Europe.

Amiibo Tap Coming April 30th In North America

AmiiboTap

A smaller announcement that came from the Nintendo Direct earlier this month was for a piece of software called Amiibo Tap. The app came out earlier this week in Japan and it’s now on its way to North America.

amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits (confirmed for April 30): Download the game from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, then tap any amiibo to your Wii U GamePad. You’ll unlock a random playable three-minute scene from a classic NES or Super NES game. It’s a cool way to extend the playability of amiibo. Here’s the game page: http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/FHXK5fELXvygJ9ALk2bqyATmG-iDm07q

While I don’t think this will be something people will be going out and buying Amiibos for, I can see how this would give all those Amiibo collectors something extra to mess around with. How do you feel about Amiibo Tap? Will you be checking it out when it comes out?

Space Hulk Coming To Wii U May 2nd

A while back, a game based on the Warhammer 40k universe was shown to be coming to Wii U. That game is called Space Hulk, a turn-based strategy game where you play as the Blood Angel Terminators and fight against the Genestealers. Well it received a release date earlier today for May 2nd.

According to the hub-page, the single player will be based off of the Sin of Damnation campaign. It will feature 3 brand new missions and will include the 12 missions from the classic board game. Multiplayer will be more like the board game pitting players against each other in a head-to-head battle. It isn’t known if the multiplayer will be local or online.

Ultra Street Fighter IV Coming May 26th To PS4

UltraStreetFighterIVPS4

Not too long ago, Street Fighter V was announced as a PC and PS4 exclusive. However, though the game was announced already, it will be a while before we’re actually playing it. Capcom knows this and wants to get PS4 owners ready in the mean time with Street Fighter IV.

It was recently announced that Ultra Street Fighter IV will be launching May 26th for Playstation 4 and will include all characters, all stages, and all DLC in 1 package. This is definitely a good deal for those wanting to test out how the series feels on PS4, never got around to picking up the game on previous systems, or aren’t too familiar with the series in general.

Smash Bros – MewTwo, Lucas, Update, Mii Outfits, Fighter Ballot

SmashBrosMewTwoIn the recent Direct, we got quite a bit of Smash Bros. news. Among the information was a trailer for Mewtwo, pricing, and a release date. For those who didn’t register both versions of Smash Bros., Mew Two will be available April 28th for $3.99 per version or $4.99 for both versions. If you registered both copies on Club Nintendo, you’ll receive a free download code April 15th. I can’t wait to use those ultra powerful throws on people once again. Also that Final Smash looks really crazy! Mewtwonite Y Mega Evolution?! Yes please!

SmashBrosLucasNext we got ourselves another character reveal. Lucas came out of nowhere and is back in the fight! I totally wasn’t expecting to see Lucas make it back in Smash but I’m glad to see him. He looks even better then he did in Brawl. Mr. Iwata also went to on to note that he’s from Mother 3 which was released only in Japan and that they’ve heard the requests. I wonder if this is a hint towards something in the future? Who knows. Either way, having Lucas back on the roster is a huge plus.

Along with the two character reveals we also got another pretty big announcement. They’ve opened up a site where you can formally request new characters for Smash Bros. There’s no limits who you can vote for. This means if you want to characters to return or if you’ve been wanting to see characters such as Rayman, Crash Bandicoot, Laura Croft, Mickey Mouse, Wonder Red, etc. you can send your vote in. There’s no limits who you can vote for so definitely hop on over there and cast your vote!

SmashBrosMiiOutfits1There’s also new outfits on the for Mii Fighters which include outfits based on different games coming via DLC. You’ll be able to use a Cat suit, a Monkey suit, a Smash Bros. T-Shirt, Link’s Tunic, Link’s Tunic with Majora’s Mask, X’s armor, Proto Man’s armor, and Dunban’s Outfit. Each outfit will go for $0.75 per version or $1.15 for both versions. These outfits will be available April 15th. This is only the first wave of character outfits. There are more outfits coming at a later date as well.

Finally, most of this DLC will be coming out along side Update (Ver. 1.0.6). The update will include the DLC, it also will tweak the characters for balancing, and add in more sharing functionality on Wii U. Nothing really has been shown on the update itself but they did note that the sharing features will include Photos, Mii Fighters, Replays, Custom Stages, and “More” which doesn’t tell us much. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the new features they add will be. The update will be available April 15th.
