All Articles: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

Nintendo Download: Zen Pinball 2, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, more


I don’t want to tell Nintendo how to run their business, but maybe “Nintendo Download Day” shouldn’t be on Thursday if the majority of games published by Nintendo are released on Sunday. Just look at the two biggest games in this week’s update: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. They’re both coming to the 3DS eShop this week (and are technically part of today’s Nintendo Download), but you won’t be able to download either one until Sunday, March 24.

If bustin’ ghosts as Mario’s kid brother or exploring dungeons as your favorite Pokemon doesn’t thrill you, there is a new game you can download today: Zen Studios’ Zen Pinball 2. It’s now available on the Wii U eShop along with most of the previously released DLC tables including Marvel Pinball and Plants vs Zombies table.

More information on these new releases, as well as a trio of additional games that will be available today, is available after the break. (more…)

New Releases: Lego City Undercover, GoW: Judgment, Walking Dead FPS, More


Another week, another highly anticipated prequel. Gears of War: Judgment will be available this week, exclusively for the Xbox 360.

Sidestepping to a shooter of a different kind is The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. This other game based on The Walking Dead used the television show for inspiration and stars the crossbow-wielding fan favorite, Daryl Dixon. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will be released for the PC (download-only), PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.

Speaking of the Wii U, this is actually a big week for new releases on Nintendo consoles as Lego City Undercover and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will soon be available for the Wii U. The 3DS will receive a pair of big new releases in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, as well as a portable version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

More new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Nintendo announces March 24 release date for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

pokemongatestoinfinityThose lovable Pokemon will invade the 3DS next year in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, the latest game in Nintendo’s long-running franchise.

Scheduled for release on March 24, Gates to Infinity will let players take control of their favorite Pokemon (Pikachu, Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig or Axew) and “journey through infinite dungeons, battle and befriend other Pokémon, collect treasures and explore the game’s vast, beautiful world.”

It sounds pretty similar to every previous Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game, but this rendition will also include “Magnagates” that can only be accessed by scanning a circular object in the real world with the 3DS Camera and a multiplayer mode.

Nintendo has promised to reveal more details on the multiplayer mode soon.

3DS sells 4 million in 2011; New Mario Party, Pokemon announced

It’s no secret that the 3DS is not selling as well as Nintendo would like…

Sorry, wrong article. That was actually the opening sentence to our news report on the 3DS’s August price drop. Needless to say, it doesn’t quite apply on the third day of 2012, as Nintendo has announced that they sold four million 3DS handhelds in the US in 2011.

Besides the sales turnaround of their newest portable system, Nintendo had a very good year last year. Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land became the first games to sell a million copies on the 3DS while The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword also pushed a million on the Wii.

To ensure that the 3DS continues printing money, Nintendo wasted no time in announcing that two of their biggest franchises, Mario Party and Pokemon, will make the jump to the handheld in the near future.

The word “duh” comes to mind. As does the word “cha-ching.”
