Gunvolt out August 20 in Japan ⊟

Woo! Azure Striker Gunvolt, the 3DS action game by Inti Creates, will release to Japan’s eShop on August 20 for ¥1960 yen (about $20) — no release date for the West yet other than “Summer”. I did not realize it was that close to being finished. I guess I imagined an extended Mighty No. 9 type situation.

More cool boss images on Inside-Games!

So much Monster Hunter 4G crap ⊟

With Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate announced for Japan, here comes an overwhelming monster-sized assortment of tie-in items. Literally tied in (as in attached to the game) is the limited edition, which comes with four figurines and a random plush when purchased from e-Capcom.

There are also way too many accessories, like screen cleaners, SD cards?, stickers, cases, earphones, this treasure chest looking thing… Anyway, go ahead and throw all of your Monster Hunter 4 accessories in the trash, because there are 4G items now. Via Ruliweb.

I wonder what will be shown! More importantly, I wonder if Satoru Iwata will be on screen…

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.

Dragon Quest X coming to 3DS ⊟

The Wii/Wii U/PC MMO will be released on 3DS in Japan September 4. Players of the handheld version will be able to share the same game world with the other versions. The control scheme looks really, really awkward and shoehorned, with basically pictures of Wii U buttons on the touchscreen.

It’s apparently built on streaming tech, like the mobile version, which means it isn’t so much a 3DS game as a 3DS client running an OnLive-style stream of the game running on a computer somewhere… else… Despite the actual game not really being on 3DS, it’ll still cost ¥3800 and come in a box (packaging shot above via Famitsu). As a result of the streaming, it’ll look better than most 3DS games but won’t be in 3D.

An in-game code will be available to get exclusive “Lemon Slime” items. I do want Lemon Slime items…

Nintendo Game Seminar games on Wii U eShop in Japan ⊟

Takashi Tezuka, General Manager of EAD Software Development Department, announced on Miiverse the release of four games from the 2013 edition of the Nintendo Game Seminar, all on the Wii U eShop (in Japan).

Nintendaan broke down the four games in translation. Poppo Hunter is a “hunting game” in which you help a pigeon find a wife, using the Wii Remote? Hissatsu! Center Heroes is a game about sentai-style heroes battling to get into the center of a photo. Shima Nagami lets you guide Cloud-kun around a beautiful island, picking up items along the way. And Sento Danchi is a tower defense thing about protecting a spaceship.

They’re all available through a single download of a Game Seminar app (again, only in Japan). I really wish I could play these, if for no other reason than to see how “Nintendo” these student projects feel.

Is anyone else as fascinated by the Game Seminar as I am?

Hyrule Warriors' Japanese “Treasure Box” is just that ⊟

In fact, not only is it a box of treasure, it includes one, that makes little Zelda sound effects. It also comes with a Triforce clock and a scarf. It’s 14,904 yen ($146) at Amazon.

Really, the part of this package that would give me pause is the, uh, Musou game included. Even that’s looking pretty good, though!

Brain Age on Wii U eShop for free in Japan ⊟
In a move that almost certainly could have waited for E3, the DS Virtual Console has launched in Japan with the release of the first Brain Training (via Nintendaan). It’s free!
Not sure what else to say other than it toally looks like a DS game running on a Wii U. It’s apparently a pretty barebones Virtual Console, too.
I’m glad Nintendo didn’t wait for E3 for this, so I could write this post casually while my kids sleep instead of pounding on the keyboard in a rush.

New Pushmo for Wii U ⊟

[Update: Pushmo World coming to the U.S. (and European!) eShop for $9.99 on June 19! Nintendo will promote the game’s launch by discounting Pushmo ($4.69) and Crashmo ($5.99) on the 3DS eShop from May 28 to June 13.]

Hiku-Osu World (Pushmo World) comes out in Japan June 19 for 1,000 yen. Get pumped for HD Mallo! And, you know, a sequel to one of the most clever puzzle series on the 3DS, all about pulling and pushing 3D blocks to make spaces to climb. Like the 3DS versions, this has a level editor and QR code generation! It also features World Pushmo Fair, an in-game hub that integrates with Miiverse while allowing you to share and download puzzles.

Oh, HD Mallo isn’t real enough for you? How about a Mallo phone charm, pass case, or doll? Because those are coming out too.

Nintendo and DoCoMo make tethering app for 3DS in Japan ⊟
Probably not what you imagine when you think of Nintendo embracing the smartphone industry, but what ever is? Nintendo and Japanese phone company DoCoMo will release the “Easy Tethering for Nintendo 3DS” app on Google Play tomorrow, allowing certain DoCoMo Android phones to share internet connections with 3DS consoles.
To encourage people to try this, Nintendo will give users a free 3DS Virtual Console game… but hasn’t decided which one.

I’d learn Shogi for this Game Boy board ⊟

I don’t know how to play Shogi, but I’d love to have an excuse to have this Game Boy-themed board by den in my house. Unfortunately, it’s sold out – and would have cost over $1200 were it in stock.

den is a pretty dang cool shop, though! With some much more affordable items! Via miki800.
