There’s also an added local multiplayer mode called CRIME.NET Local Play, that allows you to set up a local game and invite up to four friends on the same local network. Finally, this version launches with a new character, Joy, releasing first on Switch complete with h... »
Darkest Dungeon came out on the Switch on January 18, with a physical release planned for March. Intrigued by this dark turn-based dungeon-crawling RPG, we got in touch with Red Hook Studios to learn more about it. One of the biggest things that sets Darkest Dungeon apart from other dungeon crawling RPGs is its use of stress and the need to keep an eye on your characters’ mental states. What inspired you for this aspect of gameplay? We looked at a lot of movies and books that modeled what happens to a small group of people under extreme duress – Band of Brothers, Alien(s), The Thing. We wanted to explore heroism by contrast, not by power fantasy. The darkest, most dire circumstances ... »
Welcome back once again to Nintendo Time Portal, where we look back through the years to see what Nintendo game anniversaries and special events we have to celebrate this week. February 19 – Apollo Justice comes to North America. On February 19, 2008, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney was released in North America for the DS. This fourth entry in the Ace Attorney series was the first to star a new character, rookie attorney Apollo Justice, although Phoenix Wright still appeared as a character in the game. Despite being one of the more divisive Ace Attorney games, it was generally well-received and as recently re-released for the 3DS. February 20 – Sonic and the Secret Rings is release... »
After our interview with the developers of Layers of Fear: Legacy, they sent us a review code so we could experience this journey through madness. Layers of Fear puts you in the shoes of an artist who returns to his old home to complete the masterpiece he’s been attempting to paint. After a brief exploration of the house, you unveil your canvas and get to work. Simple, right? Not when reality warps the moment you leave the room, and you find yourself in another version of the house as it twists and changes around you. Layers of Fear depicts the artist’s madness through an ever-shifting environment, with imagery that is often symbolic and always surreal. These changes often come i... »
Products provided by Nintendo! After having live-streamed Bayonetta last Friday (late) and continued to record uploads for the YouTube channel, I wanted to give viewers a taste of Bayonetta 2. Having never finished the first game, my plans are to do a full let’s play of it, while chipping away at Bayonetta 2 later on. I did indeed finish Bayonetta 2 when it first released on the Wii U years back. Playing both games seemingly at the same time, the differences are clear from the start. Bayonetta 2 is simply insane. The prologue felt like something you’d play through to close out a game. The action is more epic and intense but another thing stood out a bit more. Colors. The palette ... »
This week brought many more exciting announcements to Nintendo fans. Let’s take a look. Nintendo Switch News Shining Resonance Refrain is coming west this summer for $49.99, and the western release will include the Switch. This is a remaster of the Japan-exclusive action RPG Shining Resonance. It features the original game with all of its DLC included, a new Refrain Mode that has new playable characters and story content for subsequent playthroughs, and dual audio. In this RPG, when you build up BPM during combat, your party will be able to perform a song for beneficial effects as part of the “B.A.N.D. System.” If you get the Draconic Launch Edition, the game will come with... »
Welcome to the third edition of Nintendo Time Portal, where we take a look at a few of the Nintendo anniversaries celebrated this week. So without further ado… February 11 – Mario & Luigi 3 is released in Japan. On February 11, 2009, the third game in the Mario & Luigi series was released in Japan. Eventually brought west as Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, this game brought back the humorous villain Fawful and sent Mario and Luigi in a quest through Bowser, who co-starred as a third playable character. Many fans consider it to be the best in the series. February 14 – The Game Boy Advance SP is released. On February 14, 2003, the Game Boy Advance SP c... »

When Game Freak decided to make a game about an aspiring jockey, they realized the one thing horse racing games have been missing all these years: solitaire. In Pocket Card Jockey for the Nintendo 3DS, you play a young jockey whose first attempt to race a horse ends in a fatal accident. However, thanks to an angel who enjoys horse races, you’re given a second chance at life with a special power that lets you channel your solitaire skills into racing. Horse racing and solitaire might not seem like the most obvious combination, but Pocket Card Jockey makes it work. In each leg of the race, you use the touchscreen to position your horse and gather energy, and then you play a round of golf... »
Personally, I am a fan of the Metroid Prime series, and I was waiting impatiently to get the new Metroid Prime Federation Force last week. I might have been the first to get to the store to pick my copy. Now I have completed all missions; I’ll share with you some of what I’ve learned and some tricks. The Story I am not giving up much detail to avoid spoiling the game for you. In the Metroid Prime world, this is one of the most engaging stories released until now. 22 missions were enough to keep me entertained for a while. It is consistent with Samus’ storyline, but if you are not familiar with the original game, you can still enjoy the story. There are some differences if you play sol... »
The Mario vs. Donkey Kong series has changed a lot over the years, and one of the biggest changes in Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is right in the title. You won’t be fighting Donkey Kong. Instead, you’ll guide mini versions of Mario, Donkey Kong, Peach, Toad, or Pauline through a series of puzzles. There are four main modes, but the basic gameplay remains the same in each. Your Minis move on their own, and you must lay down paths for them to follow to the door. In Mario’s Main Event, random tiles are dispensed for you to use to create your path. Puzzle Palace gives you a set number of tiles instead, while Many Mini Mayhem fills the board with tiles you must arra... »
Game Review of SEGA 3D Classics Collection Release Date: April 26th, 2016 NA Publisher: SEGA Retail: $29.99 – Recommended! Classics will always be excellent games. Sega has brought us the best possible remake of 9 classics. In general, all games are just the old classics but with 3D features now. The possibility to save game plays for later in any of the games makes it possible to have better achievements over time. The replay option is also useful to share with friends the most amazing moves and plays. To watch them in 3D makes it especially attractive, and the fast forward option is catchy. After playing them all, I’ll share my best picks. Like many of you after playin... »
After a successful Square Enix Collective campaign, Magnus Games opened up the Kickstarter for Re:Legend, their upcoming monster-raising RPG. Since a Switch release is also planned, we got in touch with Magnus Games to learn a little more about Re:Legend. First, let’s talk about the title. “Re:Legend” certainly calls to mind other JRPG titles, but what does it mean in the context of the game? The title means the Reborn of a Legend. It has something to do with the main story which we’re not going to spoil too much right now. 😉 There’s also a hidden meaning behind the title outside of the game’s context where it was a reborn of a project we used to call “Legend of Lumin... »
Back in April, the indie developer Ore Creative announced that after they contacted Nintendo with interest about bringing their adventure game Ira to the Switch, their hope became a reality. Act 1: Pilgrimage will be out for the Switch as well as other platforms later this year. We got in touch with Ore Creative to learn a little more about this intriguing adventure game. Ira is an adventure game, but it sounds as though it isn’t the traditional point-and-click interface found in many adventure games. How would you describe Ira’s gameplay? That’s very true, Ira isn’t your standard point and click adventure, it’s a hybrid. Ira started with a basic point and click mechanics system, but w... »

Creeping Terror is an exploration-driven game about a girl named Arisa who goes to an old mansion with her friends and later finds herself all alone. After the announcement, we got in touch with Sushi Typhoon Games to learn more about Creeping Terror. As a big fan of horror games, I was excited to see the announcement that Creeping Terror is coming West for the 3DS. Hello, this is Yoichi Sumida of Sushi Typhoon Games. Thank you for your interest in Creeping Terror. As a video game producer, I am very happy to know via SNS that so many overseas gamers are interested in the titl... »
