The Wii U keeps on sailing towards better day with the release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD this week. In contrast with Wind Waker’s polarizing 2003 debut, everyone seems very excited to get their hands on the remake. Also available this week is 2K’s latest sports title, NBA 2K14. The game will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Finally, a pair of Ubisoft compilations may entice the budget Xbox 360 gamer. Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Trilogy (which includes Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations) and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Trilogy (which includes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier) will both be available for Microsoft’s system.
3DS owners will get the chance to download Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl this Tuesday, October 1, as part of this week’s Nintendo Download. The Atlus RPG will be joined on the 3DS eShop early next week by Rune Factory 4, the latest game in the farm simulator series.
But what can Wii U, 3DS, and DSi owners download today? Well, there’s…
- Donkey Kong 3 (Wii U), the weird Donkey Kong game where an exterminator has to shoot DK in the hind quarters with pesticide.
- Carps & Dragons (3DS), a fishing game with dragons.
- Family Table Tennis 3D (3DS), a family game of table tennis.
- Let’s Ride: Best in Breed 3D (3DS), another horse trainer sim.
- Mystery Murders: The Sleeping Palace (3DS), a new hidden object game.
- Paws & Claws: Pampered Pets Resort 3D (3DS), another pet trainer sim.
- Astro (DSi), a space shooter.
More details on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Japanese Developer Atlus, best known for the Persona series, is bringing the next title in the Etrian Odyssey RPG series to the US this Fall for the 3DS. The new game, Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, will be the second title in the series on Nintendo’s newest handheld, following on from the success of Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. It is being touted as a reimaging of the original Etrian Odyssey that debuted on the DS in 2007.
Atlus will once again be employing Japanese animation company Madhouse, who they worked with on Persona 4: Golden and Persona 4: Arena, to provide story cutscenes and voice acting, marking a first for the RPG franchise. The game is also shedding the limitations on class skills found in previous titles, replacing it with a new system, dubbed “Grimoire Stone,” that will allow players to assign skills wherever they choose.
In addition to the game’s Story Mode, there will also be a Classic Mode for the nostalgic gamer, featuring the original game with an extra dash of 3D and three difficulty settings: Picnic, Standard, and Expert.
