Puzzle & Dragons X was featured in a big way today at GungHo Festival 2016. There was news about a couple of collaborations, a versus mode, and more.

The first new Puzzle & Dragons X collaboration ties into Taiko Drum Master: Dokodon! Mystery Adventure. In Puzzle & Dragons X, players will be able to make friends with Don-chan and Tamazo X Don-chan. And in Taiko Drum Master: Dokodon! Mystery Adventure, free music from Puzzle & Dragons X will be offered at launch while also including Tamazo X Don-chan in Adventure Mode.

Monster Hunter Stories will also be seeing a collaboration in Puzzle & Dragons X. Rathalos and Nargacuga are being included as bosses, and it will be possible to create Soul Armor for each. This content will be distributed via a quest on August 10.

Aside from that, GungHo Online Entertainment provided a first look at Puzzle & Dragons’ versus mode, which is accessible at the Dragon Coliseum. The main objective here is to eliminate your opponent’s health. Battles are carried out by choosing skills and then playing a puzzle. The game determines the amount of damage for both players, and the person who has the higher attack amount can damage their opponent.

Check out the video below for footage of the collaborations and versus mode, as well as a trailer for the anime series, and a commercial for the title itself. We also included some gameplay that ties into the new toys.

A scan from this month’s issue of V Jump, which first appeared last week, outed the existence of One Piece: Great Pirate Colosseum for 3DS. ShonenGamez has now put up the scan in full with a complete translation. You can get a look at it above.

Last month’s issue of Nintendo Dream contained a noteworthy interview with Kirby: Planet Robobot director Shinya Kumazaki. It was very insightful, with Kumazaki discussing topics like the story, characters, Robobot Armor, and abilities. He also delves a bit into the game’s origins and reveals that Planet Robobot was originally intended to be more along the lines of “Kirby Triple Deluxe 2”. On top of that, we have an interesting image at the end of the post.

We’ve rounded up a bunch of the questions and answers from Nintendo Dream’s interview. Head past the break to read our translation full.

[Review] Kirby: Planet Robobot

Posted on 22 hours ago by in 3DS, Reviews | 3 Comments | 0 Likes

System: 3DS
Release date: June 10 2016
Developer: HAL Laboratory
Publisher Nintendo


For as long as I can remember, I’ve blindly followed Nintendo through all of their expenditures to varying degrees of success. I remember the times with my GameCube and Game Boy as vividly as the experiences I spent on my Wii U just yesterday. There’s always been a certain charm that has resonated with me in games by the big N, and most of that comes from not only the spectacularly well-designed games that come often enough to keep me hooked, but also from the lovable characters that inhabit them.

But Kirby has never been one of the characters that came to mind when I thought of what I love about Nintendo. During all my gaming experiences as a child it appears Kirby was all but completely absent from those memories, and that’s mostly thanks to me never actually picking up this side-scrolling mascot’s games. My logic has always been “what can Kirby do that Mario doesn’t already do better?”. After picking up Kirby: Planet Robobot, however, I soon fell in love with this puff of pink and understood what diversifies him from Nintendo’s other platforming greats.

Update 2 (5/28): The collector’s edition is now $16 off on Amazon. On Amazon Canada, it’s $9 off.


Update: Bumped to the top. For Canadian players, the standard guide is on Amazon here and the collector’s edition is here. For the UK, the standard guide is up here and the collector’s edition is here.


Original (5/21): When Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon launch later this year, a guide containing over 350 pages will accompany their release. Two versions are planned: a standard guide and collector’s edition.

Here’s what’s included:

The official strategy guide from Pokémon for the Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon video games!

Be prepared for each part of your journey with the step-by-step walkthrough and extensive hints in Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon: The Official Strategy Guide! From your first steps as a Trainer and through your adventure, this guide has the info and tips to help you play like the very best.

Here’s what you’ll find inside:
-Detailed walkthrough of the brand-new Pokémon games!
-Locations of where to catch Pokémon!
-Lists of moves, items, and more—including how to obtain them!
-Helpful tips for getting the most out of communication features!
-Pullout map of the region!

If you opt for the collector’s edition, you’ll receive a premium hardcover along with “bonus content” only included in that version. Pricing is set at $25 for the standard guide and $40 for the collector’s edition.

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 1 day ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 11 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.

V Jump has now put up a recording of the entire event, which includes new off-screen footage. You can watch it in full below.
