This week’s Nintendo Download is all about the 3DS as a pair of RPGs, a side-scrolling cowboy adventure, and a new take on the greatest game you can play on a table full of holes were added to the 3DS eShop today.
The pair of RPGs include XSEED’s Unchained Blades and Atlus’s Code of Princess. Both promise to scratch that JRPG itch that a lot of 3DS gamers have and players are no longer required to go hunting through the stacks of boxes at their local game retailer in hopes of finding a copy.
Also available on the 3DS eShop this week is Gunman Clive, a side-scrolling Western adventure that promises “a unique artstyle.” Rounding out the new releases is Air Battle Hockey 3D, am air hockey game that puts air hockey inside of a tube.
Rounding out this week’s new additions are two DSiWare games: the vertical-scrolling shooter Galaxy Saver and the extreme snowboarding of Snowboard Xtreme (bet you didn’t see that one coming).
More information on all of these titles can be found after the break. (more…)
This week’s new releases will sneak up on us like a ghostly assassin in a steampunk setting. If that analogy seems oddly specific to you, might I point you towards Dishonored (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), a stealth game that has more than a few gamers giddy with anticipation.
Speaking of stealth, this week also sees the release of 2K’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) reboot. Developed by Firaxis, sneaking up on some aliens and giving them the “Welcome to Earth” treatment should be a hoot.
Also available this week is the dancefloor shenanigans of Just Dance 4 (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) and a trio of Kinect adventures for the Xbox 360: Harry Potter For Kinect, Dragon Ball Z For Kinect, and Fable: The Journey. Maybe I’m just not seeing the big picture, but why would publishers release four of the biggest Kinect games of the Fall on the same day?
Finally, for those looking for a little handheld excitement, Atlus is bringing the action RPG Code of Princess to the 3DS.
Hit the jump for more of this week’s new releases. (more…)
Code of Princess is coming to the 3DS in North America, thanks to Atlus. The beat-em-up RPG was developed by Agatsuma Entertainment and Bones, and has some very interesting characters. Check out the video to see each one in action, including my favorite, Zozo. She’s not a zombie, she’s a necromancer. Get it straight!
Code of Princess will be available on October 9 for the 3DS. Pre-order now and you’ll get some extra goodies. Who doesn’t love goodies?
Your 3DS is about to get a little more risque: Atlus announced that they’ll be bringing the scantily clad Code of Princess to North America this Fall. Developed by Agashima Entertainment, Code of Princess is an action RPG brawler with both competitive and cooperative multiplayer options.
With both the character development of an in-depth RPG and the fun gameplay of an old-school side-scrolling beat-em-’up, Code of Princess promises to bring a fun new experience to the 3DS.
Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus, said:
Developed by an all-star team of industry veterans, Code of Princess is unlike anything else available for Nintendo 3DS. Fans of action will savor the game’s combat, which is loaded with satisfying chain attacks and plenty of depth-both in terms of attack options and also quite literally in the sense that battlefields employ a three-railed design, letting players move forward and back as tactics dictate. Fans of RPGs will relish the ability to level and improve their characters, converting their gained experience into boosts for the stats that best suit their play style and tactics. This appealing amalgam of game designs is wrapped in a beautiful package, boasting lovingly rendered and animated characters and eye-catching flurries of punches and kicks. With something for virtually every kind of old-school gamer and with an esteemed pedigree to draw upon, Code of Princess is certain to be one of the most anticipated Nintendo 3DS games of the year.
That’s quite an ambitious claim. In true Atlus fashion, those who pre-order the game will receive the Sound & Visual Book, with artwork from designer Kinu Nishimura, as well as music from ACE’s soundtrack. Start clicking that pre-order button, collectors.
