All Articles: Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
It’s a big day for the Xbox Games Store as seven new Xbox One titles are now available to download.
Leading things off is EA’s EA Sports UFC 2. As you might expect from its numerical suffix, UFC 2 is EA’s second stab at a mixed martial arts simulation. The megapublisher has added hundreds of fighters to the game as well as improved the “Knockout Physics System” in an attempt to create the most authentic MMA adaptation ever.
Also available today is Shadow Complex Remastered, Chair’s modern-day take on the “Metroidvania” genre. Originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2009, the remastered edition of the game includes enhanced graphics, all-new dynamic melee take-downs, and additional Achievements and Master Challenges. A second side-scroller will get an Xbox One re-release today as Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is also now available to download. WayForward has promised that the third game in the Shantae series is the biggest yet, and the first to debut on the Xbox One.
Finally today, Amplitude will bring Dungeon of the Endless and its unique “Rogue-Like Dungeon-Defense” hybrid to the Xbox One.
More information on all of these games (and several other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
Exactly 26 years ago, I unwrapped an NES “Action Set” complete with the original Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt. This Christmas, Nintendo wants to recreate one of my earliest childhood memories by adding Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, a Game Boy Color port of the original Super Mario adventure, to the 3DS eShop and Duck Hunt to the Wii U eShop. Someone tell the Duck Hunt Dog that I will have the last laugh this year…
Two other Nintendo classics are now available to download today, both on the Wii U eShop. Mario Party Advance was the first Mario Party to be released for a Nintendo handheld. And Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 brought Super Mario World, possibly the greatest Super Mario game ever, to the Game Boy Advance when it was originally released.
Also available this week is the Wii U debut of WayForward’s strong>Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. Already available for the 3DS, Wii U owners can now take control of the feisty genie in her latest side-scrolling adventure.
More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. (more…)
For those of you who like to spend Christmas Day gaming, if you have a Wii U, you’ll be getting an extra special treat. WayForward Technologies has announced via their Twitter feed that Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse will be available on Christmas Day in North America. The game will cost $19.99 on the Wii U eShop.
I’m sure some of you will agree with the hashtag WayForward added to their tweet: #BestPresentEver!
