The Great Ace Attorney 2 will be on 3DS

Posted on 19 hours ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 6 Comments | 0 Likes

When Capcom announced The Great Ace Attorney 2 a few months ago, the company didn’t actually confirm any platform for the game. That changed during a 15th anniversary event held in Japan a few hours ago. A new trailer debuted, and it’s now confirmed that The Great Ace Attorney 2 will be exclusively on 3DS.

The video isn’t online just yet. However, we should be seeing it online very soon.

The huge Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 was only just hosted last week, but Nintendo continued to deliver big news a few days ago. On Wednesday, the company held its new Fire Emblem Direct.

There were quite a few announcements, and some surprises along the way. Nintendo kicked things off by revealing Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for 3DS, a re-imagining of Fire Emblem Gaiden. Next was the confirmation of a brand new Fire Emblem heading to Switch in 2018, followed by a bit of gameplay from Fire Emblem Warriors – plus the announcement of a New 3DS version. Finally, we got a lengthy look at the mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes.

What do you guys make of the Fire Emblem Direct? Were you surprised to see another Fire Emblem game for 3DS? Do you intend to try out Fire Emblem Heroes when it launches on February 2? Let us know how you feel in the comments below!

Another round of footage is online for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment on Switch. Check out gameplay from the Stranded Ship below.

Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World isn’t far off. In the west, the game launches on February 3. And since the release is just on the horizon, Nintendo has made a pre-load option available on the North American 3DS eShop.

Those who pre-load Poochy & Yoshi’s Wolly World can download most of its data prior to launch. When the game officially arrives, just a small update will be needed to begin playing. 7,793 blocks (974.125 MB) of free space is required.

XSEED’s third Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns localization blog is now available. The latest post covers the many cats and dogs that can be had in the game.

On the topic of pets, some of you have been asking if Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns will keep the Hamtaro collaboration pet in the west. Unfortunately, the answer is no. XSEED did what it could to include Hamtaro, but it just wasn’t possible.

Regarding Hamtaro, XSEED explained:

One question I keep seeing on forums, Facebook posts, and Twitter is, “Will Hamtaro be in the game?” For those of you who hadn’t heard, the cute hamster character is featured as a pet in the Japanese version of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns, complete with a little voice clip.

Sadly, Hamtaro will not be in the North American release of the game. I can’t get into the specifics of why—the reason is more complicated than the usual licensing fee problems you might expect—but I will say that you’ll be hard-pressed to find new, official Hamtaro merchandise on sale in this part of the world. While many remember the character from his TV debut over a decade ago, Hamtaro doesn’t really have an official presence in North America anymore.

It goes without saying that we were gutted by this development and tried to keep Hamtaro in. We hate releasing a game that doesn’t have all the features of the original version, but in this case our hands were tied. For those of you who were looking forward to raising Hamtaro, I’m very sorry. But even without the little guy, there are still more varieties of pet to raise than ever before. We hope you enjoy all the different ways animals play a part in the world of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns.

XSEED’s latest Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns blog can be read in full here.

System: 3DS
Release date: January 20, 2017
Developer: Square Enix / Level-5
Publisher Nintendo


For a long time, it seemed like the Dragon Quest series was fairly underappreciated in the West. Not necessarily by its publisher Square Enix, but by the fans of its own genre. The series has usually garnered a cult following of sorts overseas all the while enjoying heavy praise in Japan. Yet to my pleasure, I’ve begun to see a somewhat recent change in that viewpoint. With the highly anticipated Dragon Quest XI on the Nintendo Switch’s horizon and the remakes of Dragon Quest VII and now Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for the Nintendo 3DS, there couldn’t be a better time to get familiar with the Dragon Quest series. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is an adventure that those who are new to the series or those who are well acquainted with it won’t want to miss out on.
