Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom trailer ⊟

Featuring LSP narration! And some other dudes! And a surprising resemblance to early Zelda! I’m into it.

Tappingo 2 out August 28 in North America ⊟

That gives me just over a month to actually finish Tappingo. Man, maybe it is time to ease back into some puzzles. Of course, I only think of puzzle games as something relaxing before I start playing them – then it’s “why am I so dumb fljlsdfasldjf;aslfjsd;f”

Tappingo 2 will sell for the same $3 price point as the original.

Evolution of Smash Bros. menu screens ⊟

Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai presented this first look at the upcoming 3DS game’s main menu, noting, “The icons are even animated. The design concept may look similar if you’ve played other games I’ve worked on.”

With that comment and all these screenshots conveniently provided in this NeoGAF thread, it seemed like a fine time to compare the menu screens for (from top to bottom) Super Smash Bros., Melee, Brawl, and the 3DS game. I also threw in Kid Icarus: Uprising, Meteos, and Kirby Air Ride — all titles Sakurai also directed.

Yesss, Blaster Master on 3DS VC ⊟

I loved this on NES, though I never finished it to my knowledge. Today on the eShop, you can get Blaster Master, a Metroidvania-esque game about a kid who loses his frog, then finds a tank, then decides to shoot everything he can find with the tank.

You can always keep up with the new eShop releases on our Releases page… as soon as I’ve finished updating it.

Meanwhile, on Wii U, the excellent Ufouria is out. Why two Sunsoft games at once? I don’t really know how the VC release schedule works, and I’m pretty sure Nintendo doesn’t really want to talk to me about it.

Level-5’s Little Battlers Experience anime comes to US in August ⊟
Nicktoons will begin showing the anime based on Level-5’s Danbooru Senki/Little Battlers Experience on August 24, producer Dentsu announced for Comic-Con. Like the various 3DS and PSP/PS Vita games that released in Japan for the series, the anime is about kids who program and battle tiny sorta-toy-but-also-sorta-secret-government-project robots.
Bandai will sell toys coinciding with the launch of the show, and Dentsu is looking for more merchandise partners.
…I mean, how about Level-5?

Captain Falcon and Kirby acting the fool ⊟

Captain Falcon’s booty game is out of control. Nintendo put out 100+ screenshots of the new Smash Bros. this morning, focusing on recently announced fighters Robin, Captain Falcon, and Lucina. You can check them out all here, but I don’t understand why you need to see anything else after that Captain Falcon booty pic. Real talk, looks like he stuffed two basketballs in his pants. Not sure how anyone is going to be able to pay attention to their battle when he starts bouncing around.

Your Tomodachi will be in Smash Bros. ⊟

Along with a 3DS-exclusive Tomodachi Life stage, the new Smash Bros. will feature Miis pulled from your system, wandering the level’s apartments.

More info on the stage:

"The front walls of the apartments disappear so you can see the area within when a fighter overlaps with the room. The rooms are randomly placed and selected from among several types. Planting an X Bomb behind a wall might be an effective tactic."

We’ll be posting a bunch of new Smash Bros. screens shortly too. Prepare yourself for Captain Falcon buttocks. Be ready for his jelly.

New Dragon Quest X 3DS trailer ⊟

Still looks fantastic, and I still don’t trust that this is what the 3DS version will look like.

But wow, what is even going on in this game? Being a Japan-only MMO, I never dared follow the details of DQX, and after watching this I am super curious. A lot of running and jumping, and I guess a ship captain is there?

Tetris Ultimate on 3DS this fall ⊟

Ubisoft finally decided to tell us what we all kinda knew, that Tetris Ultimate would be out on 3DS in addition to consoles. While the other versions are out this summer, the 3DS release will come in the fall, with a “challenge mode” exclusive to 3DS.

"From disappearing Tetriminos to orientation-locked Tetriminos, be prepared for a variety of challenges that will test a player’s fortitude."

I can deal with that! I mean, I probably can’t, but I want to try.
