BRAMBLETYNE has take to Kickstarter in hopes of funding Space Probe, a “retro-inspired casual game about collecting monsters & exploring the universe”. The goal is reasonable, as the team is only seeking £1,000 for the project. A New 3DS stretch goal lies further ahead at £5,000.

The Kickstarter pitch can be found below. You can give the campaign page a look here.


Earlier this year, a new Red with Pikachu figure was announced by Kotobukiya and featured at Wonder Festival. At that time though, we only saw it in art form.

Red with Pikachu is on display at Mega Hobby Expo 2016 Spring, and now we have actual photos of the figure. You can see some images of it below. Still no word on a release date!


The latest issue of Famitsu has shared a listing of the top 30 best-selling games in Japan for the month of April 2016. You can check out the full results below.

German Nintendo outlet ntower recently had an opportunity to speak with Ryozo Tsujimoto and Shintaro Kojima from Capcom about Monster Hunter Generations. The interview is entirely in German, but the website was kind enough to pass along the most important points in English.

There are actually some very noteworthy tidbits here. For starters, we now know that the west is getting some exclusive DLC (such as the Fire Emblem and Okami costumes) in place of some downloadable content that won’t be making it over. Other tidbits were also shared such as how there are no plans to bring the series back to Nintendo consoles currently.

Here’s the full rundown:

DJMax Encore heading to 3DS

Posted on 15 hours ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 7 Comments | 0 Likes

An unexpected 3DS title has been discovered at MCM Comic Con this weekend. Over at Rising Star Games’ booth, the unannounced DJMax Encore is playable.

The DJMax series, which features rhythm gameplay, kicked off over a decade ago. Players need to press buttons at the right moment as music plays.

As for DJMax Encore, Parallax Play speculates that it could be based on DJMax Portable 2 / DJMax Portable Hot Tunes given its menu and interface design. The site notes that the gameplay is similar to that of DJMax Portable 2, as you play songs in 4 Button, 5 Button, or 6 Button modes with the d-pad and A/B/X/Y buttons. The background animations for the various tracks play on the top screen, and the notes scroll on the touchscreen.



Update: The Splatoon Tumblr confirms Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2 for the evening of June 7 in North America:

The long-awaited release of Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2 is finally confirmed! Coming the evening of June 7th, we heard that the new weapon combinations may allow you to discover even more new battle strategies. We’ll let you know more details on the upcoming weapons once Sheldon gives us more info!

Splatoon will be adding a new batch of weapons in a couple of weeks. Nintendo has announced that Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 2 will be releasing on June 8 in Japan (likely June 7 in North America, but we’ll see). Specifics have not yet been posted, but we should be hearing more soon!

Thanks to LOLametro for the tip.
