Although it has been one of the most anticipated Nintendo 3DS eShop releases for several months, not much detail has been revealed about Inti Creates’ Mega Man-inspired Mighty No. 9.
That finally changed recently when Kenji Inafune and Inti Creates showed off Mighty No. 9 PAX 2014; you can check out over two minutes of stunning gameplay footage below:
You can definitely see the Mega Man
inspiration and some of the game’s unique mechanics, like ledge-hanging and air-dashing. Mighty No. 9
looks like one of the most visually-striking Nintendo 3DS eShop titles to date – I can’t wait to see it in 3D.
It’s too bad that the game will not be released by the end of the year – especially when the spin-off title Azure Striker Gunvolt was revealed after and launched before Mighty No. 9. Regardless it gives 3DS owners (as well as PC, 360, XB1, PS3, PS4, PS Vita & Wii U) something very cool to look forward to after the holiday season.
Today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct included some news about Bravely Second, which has been confirmed for release in Japan before the end of the year.
You can see some new footage in the trailer below:
Confirming part of this week’s rumors / leaked videos featuring new Super Smash Bros. characters, Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles) will be part of the roster of fighters in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U. Screens and a trailer introducing the new character can be found after the break. Continue reading
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:
You can check out a new trailer from PAX Prime 2014 showing gameplay and features in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.
I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised; at least the new handheld Sonic title looks a bit more like the classic games, and might not focus so much on the new, weird-looking character designs. Continue reading
You can check out the launch trailer for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney after the break. Continue reading
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.
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.
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.
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.
