Final Fantasy Explorers’ ”Light” demo, bonus FF1 ⊟

Well, this is rad. First-run packaged copies of Final Fantasy Explorers will include a code for a 3DS version of the original Final Fantasy, which looks to be based on the iOS/PSP/etc. version. It’ll be sold separately on the eShop a month later.

In other Explorers news, a demo called “Final Fantasy Explorers Light” will be released in advance of the game, featuring the first chapter and both single- and online multiplayer modes. Via GematsuGAME Watch.

Neither of these announcements have been confirmed outside of Japan, because Final Fantasy Explorers hasn’t been confirmed outside of Japan.

Limited Edition New 3DSes for Pokémon ORAS

While North America and Europe received a new trailer and details about an upcoming 3DS eShop demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, Japan enjoyed an announcement for these special edition handhelds.

Starting November 21, Japan’s Pokémon Centers will carry a limited quantity of these New 3DSes with the Kyogre and Groudon custom plates — if Google Translate is correct, they have a suede texture to them, which is baller AF. While they will include custom Home menu themes, they will not have pre-installed copies of the games. They’re priced at ¥19,000, or around $177.

You can watch the Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire trailer and read details about the upcoming demo after the break:

Nintendo making it easy to share your Tomodachi Life ⊟
Nintendo is doing a lot of weird/neat things with letting people try out Tomodachi Life demos! First it put out the short Move-In Version trial for select Club Nintendo members to test weeks before the game releases — I’ve seen reports that everyone will have access to the demo when the game ships on June 6.
And now the company has announced that each copy of the game in Europe (maybe this will come to the U.S., too?) will include two free eShop download codes for Tomodachi Life: Welcome Version, which presumably is the same thing as the Move In trial.

"Two lucky friends or family members will be able to try their hand at creating Mii characters, all with their own unique voices and personality traits, and once the Mii characters have moved onto the island they will start to interact and players can try to solve their problems. When the Tomodachi Life: Welcome Version is completed, players can unlock a rare panda suit item, which can be worn in the full game.”

What a great way to encourage players to evangelize and share the game! And speaking of free stuff, you’ll be able to download a free item on the release day, as teased in the image above. What could that be?

Conception II demo hits March 25 for 3DS, Vita ⊟

And it will offer demo completion bonuses that players can import into the full game, similar to Bravely Default. The Spike Chunsoft RPG, which has you making star babies who fight alongside your hero in turn-based battles, will release on April 15 in the U.S. and some time in the second quarter of the year in Europe (this demo news is just for North America, by the way).

Publisher Atlus also provided screenshots and details on Mecunites, “giant death robots” that your Star Children can join to form and unleash “a mega-devastating single target attack, an AOE attack, and a heal that heals allies for 100% of health.”

Get 20 Bravely Default villagers without StreetPass ⊟
Even with the StreetPass Relay system, getting hits on your system can be difficult in some rural areas, so I’m always happy to post workarounds here. Especially when they’re for a game like Bravely Default (and its demo) that encourages you to get StreetPasses to speed up bonus unlocks.
Super Yoshi posted this cheat that enables you to pick up villagers in the demo without StreetPasses — you may need to turn off auto-saving and make sure you haven’t hit a certain point:
Play up to the point where you get the quest for killing the second boss, Adamantite. That’s when I noticed the extra villager being available from that one NPC, so it could work earlier too.
Save your game before talking to that NPC. He is somewhere between the spell shop and equipment shop during the day.
Talk to him, and then check that your villager count has increased by 1.
Go talk to the Adventurer and choose “To title”, and then load up your save file again.
Now just talk to the villager-giving NPC again, and you should receive another villager!
Nice! And don’t forget that you can transfer those villagers to the full game once that’s released. Credit to Sayo for the artwork.

Yay, it’s Bravely Default demo time in the U.S. ⊟
Yay, a reason to talk about 3DS news and the eShop that has nothing to do with the service’s downtime lately. It’s also something to tide you over until this RPG releases in five weeks (or until Yumi’s Odd Odyssey hits this month).
Don’t forget that the downloadable trial contains content that isn’t in the main game, and that you can carry over bonuses from the demo to the retail version. Credit to Chiisanpo for the above pic.

Ace Attorney 5 demo
Just like it has for every Ace Attorney game, Capcom has put together a web demo of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. And just like I have for every Ace Attorney game, I’m going to try to play this demo in Japanese because I CANNOT WAIT.
My Japanese is awful. This is a game that relies entirely on wordplay and careful reading. Have fun!

Castlevania: Mirror of Fate demo out today

If you head to the eShop later this afternoon, you can grab the 3DS demo for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. The impressions I’ve read for the trial so far have been mixed, but supposedly the actual game is decent times. Plus the cutscenes, like the ones you see in these GIFs posted by video game stuffs, seem to have the right tone.

As usual, you can see the full list of handheld digital releases for today, a couple new sales, and more on our Upcoming Releases page.
