Bravely Default - Banner 3

Bravely Default – Story Trailer

As much as I loved the recent demo for Bravely Default - and I loved it a lot, sinking almost a dozen hours into its content - I was less enthusiastic about its story, and more interested in its battle system, various jobs and abilities, and its slick StreetPass features.

Since the demo did such a shoddy job of revealing any background details about the four heroes of the game, check out this new story-based trailer, which reveals slightly more about the cast in the full version of Bravely Default.

Bravely Default will finally be available February 7.

Yoshis New Island - 11

Yoshi’s New Island – Vehicle Transformation Trailer

Yoshi’s New Island appears to be shaping up very nicely for its March 14 release. Until recently, many of the major gaming media sites were quiet about the upcoming 3DS game.

For those of you hoping to learn a bit more about Yoshi’s New Island, check out this brand-new “vehicle transformation” trailer, showcasing Yoshi’s ability to transform into a helicopter and a miniature truck.

 

Personally, I could not be more thrilled about it. It is a follow-up to one of my favorite SNES games; it appears to be doing some innovative things with the series’ unique platforming style, and its adorable visual design certainly lends itself perfectly to the handheld’s 3D effects.

My only request is that Yoshi’s New Island features some kind of tie-in to Sonic: Lost World – wouldn’t that be cool, after the recent Sonic title featured DLC stages based on Yoshi’s Island?

Retrospective Review - Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds – Launch Trailer

Check out the launch trailer for Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, revealed during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct broadcast:

 

More details about the game were uncovered; namely the StreetPass features and some of the characters that show up in the game.

The early reviews for A Link Between Worlds have been decidedly positive, but I will save my own judgment and comments for when I get my hands on my own pre-ordered copy.
