It’s the second week of November and that means that Activision is finally ready to release Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. A Vita-exclusive spinoff, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, will also be available in stores this week.
If the future warfare of the biggest first person shooter series on the planet doesn’t sway you, there are plenty of other family-friendly options this week including Lego Lord of the Rings (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360), Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS), Scribblenauts Unlimited (3DS), and Wonderbook: Book of Spells (PS3).
And if you’re looking for something as far removed from Call of Duty as possible, might I suggest the Midway Arcade Origins compilation for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It contains over 30 games, including classics such as Rampage, Joust, and Smash TV, which was cruelly pulled from the Xbox Live Arcade a few years back and is now available on HD systems once again.
Even more new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
Welcome to your weekly dose of new Nintendo Downloads. Here’s what you’ll be able to download today (and one game on Sunday):
Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS eShop) - Available Sunday, November 11. When an accident scatters stickers across the land, Mario sets off on an adventure to repair a torn world. Searching Forests, Deserts and Mountains, Mario collects stickers to solve puzzles and battle monsters. Flatten characters, roll out towns and walk through living, breathing dioramas.
Pokedex 3D Pro (3DS eShop) - The Pokedex 3D Pro application is an upgraded version of the original Pokédex 3D application, exclusively available in the Nintendo eShop for $14.99. It includes detailed information about more than 640 Pokemon from the Pokemon video game series. The Pokedex 3D Pro application also includes in-depth sorting, comparison and ranking tools, as well as comprehensive details about the moves each Pokemon can learn, and how and when each Pokemon evolves.
Johnny Hotshot (3DS eShop) - After being warped into the world of one of Johnny’s favorite arcade games, Cowboy Hotshot, Johnny must take on the role of sheriff and purge the town of the bandits led by Mr. Wang!
Dress To Play: Cute Witches! (3DS eShop) - Make a little witch and design her outfit in the dressing room. When you finish, get ready to set off on an adventure as your character flies away on her broomstick to a peaceful world inhabited by fantasy characters.
A demo of Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion has also been added to the 3DS eShop ahead of its November 18 release. Be sure and check it out along with the rest of this week’s Nintendo Download, which can be found after the break. (more…)
It’s beginning to look a lot like Fall as Nintendo has announced release dates for many of their biggest 3DS, 3DS eShop, and DS releases for the rest of the year.
Art Academy: Lessons For Everyone! and Crosswords Plus will lead things off on October 1. Style Savvy: Trendsetters launches later in the month on the 22nd and then Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask makes its North American debut on October 28.
The Big N also has a big November planned with Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! (November 5) and Paper Mario: Sticker Star (November 11).
Sadly, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon won’t make it into stores before the end of 2012. The ghostbustin’ sequel has been pushed back and given a new “first half of 2013″ release window.
Mamma mia! Oh well, hit the jump for a massive list of release dates for many of this Fall’s Nintendo-published and third party 3DS, 3DS eShop, and DS games. (more…)
The 3DS is being pushed to a special 3DS show tomorrow night at 9 PM (Eastern), but Nintendo did spotlight a few upcoming games during today’s Press Conference:
New Super Mario Bros. 2 will launch on August 19.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star will include a new world full of stickers when it launches in late 2012.
Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon will feature multiple mansions with mission-based challenges and a heavier emphasis on ghost-catching action. Luigi’s Mansion will also be available in late 2012.
Nintendo’s 3DS Conference is over and while it was short on details, it was long on game announcements. All told, more than 20 titles were revealed including the next numbered game in the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter 4. Obviously, the Monster Hunter series is a much bigger deal in Japan than it is in the US, but it’s a major “get” for Nintendo all the same.
Nintendo had a few games of their own to announce at the show including an all-new Fire Emblem game, Mario Tennis 3DS and Culdcept 3DS (developed by Omiya Soft), all due next year.
In addition to a slew of new titles for the hardcore gamer, Nintendo revealed a new focus on “female gamers” for the 3DS with the reveal of the Misty Pink system seen to your left. The new color scheme will be available in Japan in October. This push for the female demographic will also include new Friend Collection and Style Savvy games in 2012.
In a bit of bad news, Kid Icarus: Uprising won’t make it out this year. Pit’s return will be released in 2012 instead.
Hit the jump for a complete list of everything Nintendo showed at their 3DS Conference, complete with tentative Japanese release dates. For some of these titles, an American release is a sure thing (or already announced). While for others, we’ll just have to hope for the best. Here we go. (more…)
