3D Fantasy Zone 2 ⊟

More radness from M2 and Sega 3D Classics, as an eShop version of Fantasy Zone 2 will be released in Japan next week.

Because M2 is amazing, this remake will include… a second, new game: Fantasy Zone 2 Link Loop Land! It’s a score attack game in which you attempt to keep your “Link” multiplier going. You’ll earn lots of coins that you can accumulate in multiple sessions, for use in the shop.

Sega hasn’t released any of the second series of 3D Classics outside of Japan yet (OutRun, Fantasy Zone), but I’m quite certain that will happen.

Kirby Fighters Z, Dedede Drum Dash Z escape from Triple Deluxe

Nintendo and HAL are expanding Kirby Triple Deluxe’s minigames into standalone 3DS eShop releases in Japan. Copy ability fighting game Kirby Fighters Z has all the powerups from the main game (Beetle and Bell only available if you have Triple Deluxe save data), along with new stages and boss fights.

Rhythm game Drum Dash Z has 7 new stages, more hazards in stages, and unlockable masks. Maybe it’s better than the original… 

Both will be out in Japan July 23, for 750 yen each. Via 4Gamer.

Gunvolt's concept in a GIF ⊟
Inti Creates tweeted this quick animation to demonstrate its approach for the upcoming 3DS eShop release: “The concept of Gunvolt is ‘High-Speed & High-Tension.’ When you kill the enemy does not stop you.”
We neglected to post it last week, but the developer also uploaded a game systems intro video for Azure Striker Gunvolt — watch it here if you also missed the four-and-a-half-minute clip.

Mighty No. 9 animated series ⊟

Keiji Inafune and Japanese CGI production company Digital Frontier (Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D) unveiled this teaser video for a potential Mighty No. 9 animated series that’s meant to be an “action-packed comedy aimed at kids 6-11.” It’s targeted for a Q2 2016 release with 26 episodes, though Digital Frontier has not finalized a director, showrunner, or funding.

Inafune and his company Comcept also announced a second crowdfunding campaign at Anime Expo 2014 this weekend. This effort will go toward financing bonus content for the game (e.g. full English voice acting), and will allow people who didn’t Kickstart the title to put in a preorder. The new campaign will not fund the animated series.

Shovel Knight has a Butt Mode ⊟
Guaranteeing a Tiny Cartridge post, Yacht Club included a “Butt Mode” code, along with a few hundred other cheats, for Shovel Knight. If you enter “WSWWAEAW” as your name when starting the game, all mentions for a bunch of reocurring words (e.g. Shovel, Knight, Health, Magic) are replaced with “Butt.” Finally, video games have grown up.
I think these work with the 3DS/Wii U version, even though they were posted for the PC/Steam release? Much thanks to the dozens of readers who knew to immediately send this tip our way.

Next Denpa Men game is free-to-play ⊟

Denpa Ningen no RPG: Free!, coming out July 23 in Japan, is the newest game in the Denpa Men RPG series, all about using the camera to catch dudes in little jumpsuits floating around in the air, and then training them to fight monsters in dungeons.

Unlike the other games, which have all had an up-front cost, this one will be free-to-play, charging for items. 

There aren’t that many other details yet. The website just opened with some art and a link to the adorable promo video here.

Comic Workshop on 3DS July 17 ⊟
Very exciting news for future owl cartoonists: Collavier’s Comic Workshop, the 3DS eShop app with all kinds of handy tools for drawing comics and manga, will be released in North America July 17 for $8.
It’s got speech bubbles, frame templates, draft/storyboard tools, and of course lots of drawing stuff. Don’t get it flipped: while this is recommended for people who draw cartoons of owls, please don’t use this if you are a cartooning owl; those fearsome talons will scratch the hell out of your screen.

I’ve Got to Run to 3DS ⊟
I’ve Got to Run, the randomly generated endless runner thing for Wii U, will be released on 3DS, developer 4 Corner Games announced yesterday. The “Complete Edition,” also coming to PC, Max, Linux, and a ~mystery platform~ will add new modes including a right-to-left run and a mode with infinite air jumps and tons of aerial obstacles. Another, 3DS-exclusive mode has yet to be announced, with seven gameplay variations in total.
Those variations are, to me, the main draw of this game: it seems appealingly weird to play an endless runner with double jumps or super speed, etc.!

Tentative tentacles experiment with 3DS/Wii U Cross-Buy ⊟
The first example of a PlayStation Network-style “Cross-Buy” feature for a Nintendo platform game will appear with Squids Odyssey's 3DS release in Europe — when someone purchases a copy of the third-party eShop title's portable release, they'll receive the Wii U's download for free as well.
Nintendo and third-party devs/publishers have experimented with discounts for eShop titles if you’ve previously purchased a related game before (e.g. discounts on 1,001 Spikes if you own another Nicalis release), but it appears the company is leaving it up to other game makers if they want to offer the same kind of “Cross-Buy” functionality boasted by PSN releases for some time now. It sure would be great to see more eShop titles, especially Virtual Console games, support this feature! Image via Wii U Daily.
[Update: Squids Odyssey developer The Game Baker told Siliconera that Nintendo’s European arm approached the studio with the idea for this promotion. When asked about working with Nintendo of America on a similar deal, the developer said, “We really like this promotion and wished to make it happen for all gamers, but NOA could not support this kind of promotion.”]

Another World on 3DS this week ⊟
No, not the soap opera. The smart, cinematic, weird sidescrolling action-adventure game by Eric Chahi! It’ll be released on eShop this Thursday for $7.99 (via @kitroplious, verified by me just now!) The eShop description is copied and pasted from some minigame collection right now…
Man, get that game! It’s so beautiful and has some of the best storytelling I’ve ever experienced in a game, with no dialogue and very little noninteractive content.
2048 is also out on eShop this week, but I don’t recommend it.

eShop-only Ace Attorney Trilogy coming to the West ⊟

Capcom just announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, which collects the adventure game’s first three releases for the 3DS, will release in the West this Winter.

Like Dual Destinies, this will be a digital-only affair, which we should all be able to agree is significantly better than a Japan-only affair. The game will feature both English and Japanese language options. Look for this and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate to pop up at E3.
