Tiny Cartridge 3DS

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.

Attack on Titan CHAIN boxart, trailer ⊟

Spike Chunsoft will release Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind CHAIN, an update to last year’s seemingly rushed 3DS game, in Japan this December. The update will be available as paid DLC (around $20) to owners of the original game, as well as a standalone retail game.

CHAIN adds four-player online co-op play with limited text chat and rankings, improved controls, interface enhancements, balance tweaks, and Circle Pad Pro support. It will also offer new stages, missions, modes, characters, voices, Titans, Titan behaviors, costumes, weapons, and more.

Watch the new trailer past the post break:

I wish the NES 3DS XL looked like this ⊟
As much as I love the packaging for the upcoming NES 3DS XL, the actual design on the GameStop-exclusive system (an NES controller slapped on the lid) is disappointing, especially when you compare it to the NES GBA SP or Japan’s Famicom-colored systems.
Kungfuquickness agreed and created this alternative by sanding down a blue 3DS, spray painting it silver, and adding details reminiscent of the 8-bit console. You can follow his instructions to create your own NES 3DS here.
If you’d rather stick with something that doesn’t require any effort beyond taking your credit card out, the NES 3DS XL is up for preorder, as are the limited edition Smash Bros. and Persona Q systems.

Oculus Rift + 3DS ⊟

Katsukity, maker of 3DS video capture hardware and software, has updated its kit to support the Oculus Rift — meaning you can view the handheld’s 3D games with the virtual reality head-mounted display. Katsukity notes that “fully 3D games really stick out!”

Naturally, Katsukity demonstrated the setup in action with girlfriend simulator New LovePlus and racy beat’em up Senran Kagura 2. Amazingly, this is just the second perviest thing someone’s done with the Oculus Rift lately, behind this VR game about grabbing anime breasts. Thanks to NihongoGamer for the via.

Smash Bros. ruining Circle Pads ⊟

Ack, these look awful. Either these people were going too hard on their Circle Pads, or the controls just aren’t built to take the punishment Smash Bros. demands (especially after that rubber slider endured years of use).

These photos were posted on the day Smash Bros. released in Japan, ending their owners’ fun real quick. Perfect excuse to get a New 3DS, I guess! Or take advantage of Nintendo’s usually generous customer service/warranty coverage.

Also, I haven’t seen any other reports of this, but at least one of our readers reported having his 3DS bricked after downloading the Smash Bros. demo. Hope that was just a freak accident!

Rising Star games on sale ⊟

As part of a 10th anniversary celebration, publisher Rising Star Games has put all of its downloadable games on sale, across both North America and Europe. Here’s what that means for handhelds in North America: a series of 3DS deals.

  • Girls’ Fashion Shoot – $7.98
  • Beyblade: Evolution – $9.98
  • Jewel Master: Cradle of Rome 2 – $3.74
  • Jewel Master: Cradle of Egypt 2 – $3.74
  • Super Black Bass 3D – $3.74

Girls’ Fashion Shoot looks pretty fun! I like the idea of being both model and magazine editor.

Anyway, stuff’s more interesting in Europe, where RSG has been established for longer. Virtue’s Last Reward, Sorcery Saga, Half-Minute Hero, Bit.Trip Saga… and if you have a PS3, don’t miss out on that super cheap Deadly Premonition in either region!

Band Saga aims for Vita, 3DS ⊟

Whoaaaaa, this game looks neat. “Band Saga is a modern Action Roguelike where every level, enemy and item is generated by music. Furthermore, every melody and every sound is synthesized in real time as you play!”

It has a built-in FM sequencer that unlocks new sounds – the sounds of all the stuff you encounter in the game, like some kind of Yuzo Koshiro x Sound Shapes situation.

Stretch goals for the Kickstarter will allow a version of this cool looking game to come to Vita at $40,000, and 3DS at $100,000. And it’ll come to TGS next week, no matter what! If you’re in Tokyo, go check it out!

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:

Mighty Gunvolt standalone out Dec. 1 for $4 ⊟

Interested in the tiny 8-bit Mighty Gunvolt, but not the actual Gunvolt game with which it’s bundled? That seems weird, but Inti Creates is looking out for you anyway. The Nintendo page for Mighty Gunvolt reveals a December 1 release date for North America and a $3.99 price point for the spinoff. I haven’t seen anything for Europe yet.

The game is still being given away with purchase of Gunvolt, through November 28. The code shows up on your eShop receipt. I loved Gunvolt, but only just now got around to checking this out, and it’s really fun! Especially for a little bonus thing.

Here’s what happened with Smash Bros. today ⊟
Kirby inhaled the Duck Hunt dog and became this delightful thing. Really that’s all you need to know.
This other Smash Bros. stuff happened too, I guess:
R.O.B. and Jigglypuff revealed as unlockable fighters, along with the other characters mentioned this morning — apparently we’ve seen the entire roster (not counting potential DLC)
Goku was also confirmed finally
These bros didn’t make it (neither did Ridley lol)
One or two people streaming their playthroughs on Twitch attracted more viewers than the Destiny streams
Bowser Jr. has a cute moveset, a Shadow Mario final smash, and Koopaling alts
One of Ness’s alts has an awesome Mr. Saturn shirt
The Duck Hunt dog and duck have a Banjo-Kazooie-esque alt
Lucina’s alt colors are great references to Awakening's other heroines 
I wasn’t surprised that people tried to look up Rosalina’s dress, but I am amazed that someone made fanart for it so quickly
