Space Harrier 3D - Title ScreenThe new downloads available this week on the Nintendo eShop should be exciting to fans of classic SEGA games – several of the newest titles include Master System/Genesis hits.

For $5.99, you can download the 3D-enhanced versions of Hang On! and Space Harrier. Along with the stereoscopic effects, Hang On! features tilt-based controls, and Space Harrier adds touch-based controls with an auto-fire option for newcomers.

Additionally, this week’s Virtual Console download - Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom can be purchased for $4.99.

eShop Character Sale - Mario

There are some interesting sales on the eShop as well; Shin Megami Tensei IV (Nov. 28-Dec. 2) is just $30 – a steal, considering it is one of my personal-favorite 3DS games of 2013. Several Mario-related games are also marked down (Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, and Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move) until December 5.

Etrian Odyssey Untold – Demo Available on eShop

Yesterday, Atlus released a playable demo of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The demo allows players to experience the first few stages of Etrian Odyssey Untold’s Story Mode, a feature new to the dungeon-crawling RPG series.

Rather than forcing players to create their own protagonists or recruit new ones throughout the game, The Millennium Girl’s Story Mode features a team of five characters with their own unique strengths and weaknesses, personalities, and skill sets. As a bonus for those who play the demo and go on to purchase the full game, all of your saved progress in the demo version can be transferred to your copy of Etrian Odyssey Untold once it launches on October 1.

After the break, you can find the official Atlus press release and more details about the latest 3DS installment of Etrian Odyssey - pre-order bonuses, Classic Mode, and more.

Review - Shin Megami Tensei IV

Review – Shin Megami Tensei IV

3DStination.com reviews Shin Megami Tensei IV, the latest installment in Atlus’s demonic role-playing series, and one of the most ambitious Nintendo 3DS games of 2013:
“…[The Shin Megami series] always marched to the beat of its own drum, so to speak. Fortunately, [Shin Megami Tensei IV] doesn’t miss a single note – from the hundreds of demons to collect and fuse, to the streamlined ‘Press Turn’ battle system…even the quick-paced nature of the handheld-friendly ‘challenge quests’ and the early stream of DLC support seems to prove that SMT IV was built by Atlus to be one of the top role-playing games on any handheld, period.”

Shin Megami Tensei IV Coming Summer 2013

Atlus finally confirmed today that Shin Megami Tensei IV will make its way to North America this summer.

The game apparently features StreetPass functionality and fully-voiced dialogue, in addition to demon-collecting, with over 400 different ones to find this time around.


Atlus is going with a team of developers whose resumes include SMT III: Nocture, the Persona series, and Soul Hackers. Not too shabby. It definitely looks fantastic, as you can see from the screens. Stay tuned for more as the summer rolls around.
