Link sings Majora’s Mask in Tomodachi Life

Postby YvoCaro » Fri Nov 14, 2014 10:59 pm

A couple of months ago I played Tomodachi Life, nowadays I’m afraid I only go back to pamper the travelers that come through my port. I want to make sure they leave with a full belly and leveled up! It’s a good game though, I just took a step back when my little YvoCaro decided to break up with the Mii of my real life husband. Now how could she do that? No, seriously, other games caught my attention.

Today BriBri (http://www.japanese3ds.com/staff) alerted me to this video of Link singing Majora’s Mask. Loved it, so I’m sharing with you all:

Is Mario Kart 8 the Greatest Game of the Franchise?

Postby Jonah » Fri Nov 14, 2014 10:53 pm



Yesterday I downloaded the new DLC pack for MK8 and I began to wonder what's next for the franchise after MK8. I think MK8 with all the added extras must now surely be the best game in the franchise. With 2 extra cups, 8 new course, 4 new vehicles, and 3 new characters, and with another pack heading our way next year, it makes you wonder what Nintendo has planned next for the franchise. Theoretically speaking, they could keep expanding and adding to this game for years.

So what's your opinion of the new DLC pack? My personal favourite tracks on the DLC are the F-Zero and Hyrule tracks. Link is my favourite new character, and unsuprisingly the Master Bike is my favourite new vehicle. :)

Shovel Knight: Modern Retro Style Gaming at its Best

Postby Jonah » Thu Nov 13, 2014 12:38 pm

I was super excited to download Shovel Knight last week, and I’m happy to announce that the game doesn’t disappoint. The game is labeled by many ‘a love letter to 8bit gaming’, which in my opinion is a fair comment.



What is Shovel Knight?

Shovel Knight is a modern platformer which has been designed to allow gamers to relive the best years of Retro gaming. The game is a 2D platformer which boasts 8-bit style graphics, a colour palette to match that of the NES, and it boasts classic developer tricks like parallax scrolling.

In the game you play the role of Shovel Knight, whose aim is to rescue his sweetheart Shield Knight, and defeat the evil forces of the Enchantress. In order to do so, Shovel Knight must take up his weapons which primarily consist of a shovel and various relics. It doesn’t take long before you see nostalgic game design/elements which are reminiscent of classic NES titles like Super Mario Bros 3, Duck Tales, Mega Man, Zelda II etc. This [...]

Harvest Moon, the Lost Valley: reclaiming the land

On November 4th Harvest Moon the Lost Valley was released by Natsume in the US. Why do I include the name of the developer here? Well, because like I explained in my earlier blog, this game isn’t the true successor to the original Harvest Moon series, but an independent developed game. Natsume holds the rights to the name here in the West, so when Marvelous decided to take releasing the games in the west into their own hands, Natsume decided to go and develop a game of their own. So, here we are, with the Lost Valley, a game that hasn’t been released in Japan for a change! If you want to wait for the successor to a New Beginning, wait for Story of the Seasons which will be released in 2015.

Well, back to the Lost Valley. I downloaded it at release, curious to see what they had made of it. Haven’t been able to play as much yet as I wanted to, but I decided to share my first impressions with you. Although it’s spring, you start off in a snowy landscape stumbling upon a little cabin. A [...]
