All Articles: Weapon Shop De Omasse
Level-5 recently released Weapon Shop De Omasse, the final game in their “Guild01” collection, in America.Originally, the developer had no plans to release it here due to how much translation work would be required, seeing as the game is very heavy on text. But, three weeks ago, it finally came out here nearly two and half years after its Japanese release. The rhythm/fantasy RPG game is played from the point of view of the blacksmith who creates and sells weapons to adventurers. Except in Weapon Shop De Omasse, the master and his apprentice have decided to rent weapons instead of sell them, collecting their rental fee when the heroes return. With a quirky story and interesting mechanics, Weapon Shop De Omasse revisits the RPG genre from a different angle, bringing something fresh and fun to the table. (more…)
Even though Sochi is in the middle of a heatwave, this week’s Nintendo Download is packed with ice and snow.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U leads this week’s new releases. The most famous gorilla in gaming has escaped the jungle and will be climbing snow-capped mountains in his latest adventure. And the entire Kong family (including Diddy, Dixie, and Cranky) is along for the ride.
Also available for the Wii U this week is a true NES classic, Ice Hockey. The American women may have missed out on the Gold Medal game in this year’s Winter Olympics, but it’s always a good time for Ice Hockey.
Over on the 3DS eShop, four new games are now available to download this week. Level-5’s Weapon Shop De Omasse, the last game in the “Guild01” collection to make it to America, leads the way. If taking on the responsibilities of a rhythmic weaponsmith doesn’t appeal to you, this week’s new releases also include Kung Fu Rabbit (a side-scrolling platformer), Quell Reflect (a puzzle game), and Sky Kid (another NES classic).
More details on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Level-5’s “Guild01” and “Guild02” collections have produced six quirky (and quirkily entertaining) 3DS titles that have helped make the 3DS eShop a very interesting place. On Thursday, Nintendo announced, finally, that the seventh “Guild” game, Weapon Shop De Omasse, would be released in America and Europe.
Like its predecessors, Weapon Shop De Omasse is a wacky new take on a familiar gaming trope. In this case, the weaponsmiths that populate every RPG produced in the last 25 years. In Omasse, this duty falls to an apprentice armorer that has to create a wide variety of monster-killing implements. Manning the shop counter, the apprentice also has to decide which heroes are worthy of the legendary weapons he creates. Always staying in his shop, the young apprentice proves that the hero of your favorite RPG didn’t slay the dragon on his own… he or she had lots of help. Weapon Shop De Omasse will be available to download from the 3DS eShop on February 20 for $7.99.
To prepare yourself for all the rhythm-based weaponsmithing it includes, you can watch the debut trailer above or you can avail yourself of a huge sale on the rest of the “Guild” series. From now through February 23, all six “Guild” games (Aero Porter, Crimson Shroud, Liberation Maiden, The Starship Damrey, Bugs vs Tanks!, and Attack of the Friday Monsters) are available to download for $2.99 apiece.
