Xenoblade Chronicles Confirmed for 3DS, Only Playable on New 3DS System

Xenoblade Chronicles for the 3DS was confirmed during today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, but the cult classic Wii RPG won’t be playable on standard 3DS, 3DS XL or 2DS systems – it will be the first New Nintendo 3DS exclusive, only playable thanks to the New 3DS’s improved hardware.

Below is the first trailer of the game running on the New Nintendo 3DS:

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire – Evolution, Acro Bike Footage

New footage from Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire has surfaced, showing off both the flashy evolution sequence in the 3DS re-makes and the Acro Bike featured in the third-gen games.

The video is in Japanese, but you still get a good look at the new evolution animation sequence, Acro Bike tricks such as wheelies and bunny hops, and plenty of the re-designed landscape of Hoenn – Fortree City and its rope bridges, Route 119 and Jagged Pass.

Check it out:


The battles look better but largely the same; it’s really the new perspective of Hoenn that I am looking forward to the most from these re-makes.

Stay tuned for more information as it surfaces until the November launch date.

Bravely Second – New Footage Reveals Jobs and More

New footage from Bravely Second – the sequel to Square=Enix’s hit JRPG Bravely Default – has emerged, revealing some information about the jobs / classes found in the series’ second installment.

The video is entirely Japanese, but gives you a nice look at a few different areas found in the game, various jobs, and the appearance of the characters using them. Check it out:

Stay tuned for more about Bravely Second as more details emerge; also keep an eye out for the Bravely Default retrospective review that I have been meaning to get around to publishing for quite some time now.

Mighty Gunvolt - Banner 2

Kenji Inafune and Inti Creates Discuss Azure Striker, Mighty Gunvolt DLC

In case you haven’t heard about it, one of the hottest upcoming titles on the Nintendo 3DS eShop is Azure Striker Gunvolt, Inti Creates’ flashy, action-packed side-scroller. It certainly helps that one of the game’s lead designers is none other than Kenji Inafune (Mega Man), and the gameplay is clearly reminiscent of the classic series.

Anyway, those who download Azure Striker Gunvolt will also get a free 8-bit crossover game called Mighty Gunvolt, which features characters from both Azure Striker and Inti’s next game, Mighty No. 9. 

Keep reading after the break for details, video footage, and an interview between Inafune and Inti Creates.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS – [UPDATED] Rumors Emerge After Leaked Videos Show Several New Characters

This is merely a rumor at this point in time, so take it with a grain of salt until information is confirmed by Sakurai, Nintendo or the official Super Smash Bros. website.

Rumors about new characters in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games have emerged this afternoon, with several leaked videos (originally posted to 4chan) showing off new characters such as Shulk, Bowser Jr. and Dark Pit.

UPDATE: All the videos that were posted earlier have since been removed from YouTube by request of Nintendo of America. This seems a lot more like a big leak than a rumor at this point, but nothing should be assumed until confirmed directly by Sakurai, the official Smash Bros. website, or Nintendo.

Final Fantasy Explorers – Knight, Monk and Black Mage Videos

Square-Enix has released some new footage of Final Fantasy Explorers, the latest installment in its exclusively cooperative multiplayer Final Fantasy spin-offs.

Although FF Explorers has only been confirmed in Japan (set for launch December 18), it looks pretty damn cool – and I am really hoping for a western version in the future.

Alas, I am getting off-track. After the jump you can check out three new videos detailing the Knight, Monk and Black Mage Jobs in Final Fantasy Explorers - unfortunately they are in Japanese.  Continue reading
