Devil Survivor 2: Break Record out in Japan this January ⊟

Yeah, a trailer for a port of a game that already came out may not seem like a big deal, but… I like this trailer!

The game comes out January 29 in Japan. As for North America and Europe, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Legend of Legacy ⊟
Coming out in Japan this January, this 3DS RPG from publisher FuRyu has… a very silly name, and very elaborate clothing.
Okay, moving on from the teaser art to these scans posted by Gematsu, it also has seven unique characters to choose from, and a “cartograph” gameplay system (basically drawing maps). The in-game character designs are much more Bravely D in proportion.

Stop browsing eBay for demo codes! You can now play the 3DS Super Smash Bros. demo without any special codes. It’s available now on the eShop in North America and Europe.
The non-Club Nintendo version does have a play limit (boo), so, like, don’t close out the demo until you’re good and ready. Amazing animation from Aarnimation.

Cooking with Cooking Mama ⊟

I’m posting this “Nerdy Nummies” video here partly to go along with the news that Cooking Mama 5 is now out in North America… and partly because MAN I want to eat those chocolate cornets.

Minecraft, and more Vita stuff from TGS ⊟

It’s possible you haven’t played Minecraft, because you’re the kind of person who only plays stuff on handhelds. I know this is possible because that’s me. Anyway, you’ll be interested in this trailer for the PS Vita version, then! It’s got multiplayer, how nice!

Other Vita trailers we’ve seen from Tokyo Game Show:

And it didn’t come out of TGS, but Aksys put out this new trailer for fighting game Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX, which releases to PS Vita and PlayStation 3 on September 23.

Great Ace Attorney trailer ⊟

Dying over here. The detective-work stuff! The art and animation look positively Ghost Trick-y. Sherlock Holmes in particular would fit right in. Here’s a rough English transcript for the video.

So that’s Tokyo Game Show, already worthwhile on the morning of day 1.

I don’t know why Tappingo 2 is better, but it’s way better ⊟
I liked Tappingo a lot. I played through a bunch of puzzles, thought “pretty cool game!” and wrote up some impressions. It was, in fact, a pretty cool game.
Tappingo 2 is the same exact thing, with new puzzles, and it’s consumed hours of my life. And I have no idea what made that happen this time.

Tappingo is a Picross-esque puzzle game in which you extend criss-crossing lines to a prescribed number. It’s really damn hard to explain: say a block has a 2 on it, that means you need to extend it 2 spaces out in some direction. The line won’t stop extending until it hits another block, so you need to plan out the puzzle to get everything to spread out the right amount. Doing this correctly generates a picture of, like, an orange, or Big Ben, or Max from Mutant Mudds, or any one of 100 things in Tappingo 2.

The only real difference between the games, besides 100 new puzzles, is the “zoom” feature, which lets you zoom in on an area of a large puzzle (which normally displays half-size to fit the whole puzzle on screen).
Is that enough to get me more hooked? It is way, way easier to play big puzzles now. The puzzles quickly get larger than one screen, jumping from about 30 seconds to complete (that feels good) to seven or eight minutes each. 
Or maybe it’s that, combined with the fact that I just came off of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney and have a case of puzzlebrain. Or maybe the puzzles are just easier. How embarrassing that would be for me, to find out that the reason I’m feeling so much better about this puzzle game is that it’s been dumbed down a bit…
Anyway, I can’t nail down exactly what it is that changed between Tappingo 1 and 2. The sequel is just a better game in some ephemeral but real way, and is now one of my favorite puzzle games in recent memory! I may not be able to explain why I’m recommending it, but I have no problem making the recommendation.

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.

Smile BASIC looking super useful ⊟

The 3DS sequel to Petit Computer, the DSiWare BASIC compiler, will be shown at TGS this week (an event I won’t be attending….) and publisher Smileboom has shown off some new screens and features along with it.

These are some example games made to show what’s possible with the 3DS compiler, including an adventure game, fighting game, and a platformer. Included with the software is a sprite and in-game art editor! There’s also some kind of program that interfaces with Korg M01D? Via ColtraineGF.

Here’s SteamWorld Heist ⊟

The followup to the rad SteamWorld Dig diverges from the platform-digging of that game, for a turn-based strategy game in which you “board enemy ships and command your crew in a unique variety of turn-based combat.”

That’s right, instead of down into the dirt, Heist looks up into space, giving the series a nice C.O.W.Boys of Moo Mesa-esque combination of space travel and western. It’ll be out Spring 2015 on… something! It’s been shown on a 3DS, at least.
