Yesterday the internet was a buzz with select Club Nintendo Platinum members receiving special promotional codes to download the demo to the new Super Smash Bros 3DS a week before the demo becomes available on the eShop.

I awoke this morning to discover I had qualified to receive these special codes via email. Is the European Club Nintendo also doing this special promotion?

I've been looking forward to Shovel Knight for quite some time, but for some reason its release is delayed in the UK. Friends in the US have had the option of buying the game since 26th June, but poor Europe still doesn't have a release date yet. So why the delay? Well, I just found this little snippet of info on Yaught Club Games web site:

"So where are we at with these regions? There haven’t been any new developments since our previous updates. Our rating process is mostly all the way through (which is a big step, to be sure!) but localization is in progress and it must be done before we can release. The game has been already capable of supporting and swapping languages, but Shovel Knight’s text itself is currently being translated into more languages.

To improve clarity, brevity, and flavor we were constantly tuning Shovel Knight’s English dialogue and menu text. Because of that we were not able to get this ball rolling sooner. Once localized and tested, we need to send i [...]

How can it be that a game that is such a huge success in Japan, still hasn’t been released in the West? The game I’m talking about this time is Youkai Watch, a game that was released in Japan on July 2013.

The game wasn't an immediate success, but since the anime series with the same name aired in January 2014, sales have doubled in two months’ time. It has been leading the Famitsu charts for videogames for some time now, and in April this year they even reached more than 1 million retail copies (downloads through eShop not included). They even release Youkai Watch 2 in July 2014, another big hit.

It can best be compared to Pokémon. For starters, this game is also supported by a popular anime series in Japan. You gather a team of ghosts to battle for you and hope that new ghosts will join your team. As far fighting goes, this game is different from Pokémon. No turn based battle, and you don’t have to choose which move will work best. The only way you can help your ghost friends is [...]

Fantasy Life Coverage from E3

Postby Jonah » Fri Sep 05, 2014 9:50 am

I know our website countdown is set for Hyrule Warriors, but the upcoming game I'm most looking forward to is Fantasy Life. In anticipation for the game I started to dig up some YouTube videos, and the best ones I think come from the E3 Treehouse showings from earlier this year. So here are two videos for your viewing pleasure. :)

p.s. I pre-ordered my copy of the game yesterday. :OO:
