Today’s Monster Hunter Direct will kicks off at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET / 12 PM in the UK / 1 PM in Europe. We’ve embedded the live stream below, and it should begin in about an hour. When any major news is shared, we’ll have it right here on the site.

The official Japanese Twitter account has accidentally revealed the final starter evolutions of Pokemon Sun & Moon via the covers of some TCG starter decks. While these evolutions have been known for months thanks to leaks and were confirmed via datamining the recent demo, this is their first official acknowledgment. However, it seems like this was not planned – the tweet was deleted about 30 minutes after it was posted.  Rowlet’s final evolution is known as Junaiba in Japan, Litten’s is Gaogaen and Popplio’s is Ashirenu. Head past the break for the image.

In addition to Pokémon, we have several other titles for Nintendo 3DS this year that are sure to appeal to a wide range of consumers. First, we have a title that is perfect for gatherings of family and friends over the holiday season. The well loved Mario Party series is back with less waiting time and more fun in the latest entry, Mario Party Star Rush, just released this month in Japan and Europe. This title will also expand your play options with new amiibo characters in the Mario series, launched on the same day. Mario Party Star Rush will be released in the U.S. on November 4.

Next, Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo, out this November, adds amiibo functionality to Animal Crossing: New Leaf for new ways to play. Consumers who already own Animal Crossing: New Leaf can update to Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo for free, so we hope that existing fans will also take this chance to visit their villages once
again. We are also releasing a new set of amiibo cards for Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo.

We released the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version starting on October 18th. Although the demo version only released last week, it has already passed 3.5 million downloads, the fastest start for any demo in the history of the Nintendo 3DS system. This point also shows the breadth of the audience for these games.


Yesterday, XSEED shipped the Corpse Party: Back to School Edition to stores alongside the digital eShop version. View an unboxing video below for a closer look at the goodies.

Natsume sold out of its River City: Tokyo Rumble stock soon after launch. This was the special version of the game that includes the keychain.

Thankfully, it won’t be much longer until Natsume has more units available. The company recently wrote on its forums that a restock is expected around the second week in November. We’ll let you know when we see it return.
