Genei Ibunroku #FE – 7th party member & Mirage revealed
Posted 16 hours ago by Matt(@NintenMaz) in News, Wii U | 6 Comments
We won’t get proper scans of this week’s issue of Famitsu until two days from now, however a preview image of this week’s issue published on Famitsu’s website revealed something interesting about Genei Ibunroku #FE, namely another party member and his Mirage.
His name is Ken Yashiro and he is a famous singer. We’ve actually seen brief glimpses of him before in some of the game’s trailers. His Mirage is the Swordsman Nabarl, who originally appeared in Marth’s games (both the NES versions and the DS remakes).
We will have more detailed info once we have the full Famitsu scans on Wednesday.

[Review] Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
Posted 21 hours ago by Vincent Ward in 3DS, Reviews | 0 comments
Release date: November 20, 2015
Developer: Spike Chunsoft
In a world where the characters typically can only just speak their own name, having a game that features 720 different Pokemon with their own personalities and jobs is a feat in and of itself. But once you mix in the addictive dungeon crawling mechanics of the Mystery Dungeon series and all the other elements that make Pokemon titles the iconic series it is, you are given the definitive Mystery Dungeon title and one fun RPG.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between November 12 and November 18.

Lost Reavers is being made by young devs, Bandai Namco trying to reach new audience on Wii U
Posted 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 23 Comments
The most recent of Famitsu has a two-page feature on Lost Reavers, Bandai Namco’s upcoming free-to-start title for Wii U. There’s more about the game in general as well as a brief interview with producers Takashi Otani and Katsuhiro Harada.
First, here’s an overview of the different characters:
Sayuri: “The Short Range and Long Range All-Rounder”
Using a katana for short-ranged attacks and a submachine gun for shooting, it is easy to use her and is thus recommended for first-time players.
Dwayne: “A Firepower Oriented Power Type”
At the core of this character is his assault rifle, though there is the possibility of using many other smaller firearms. When using his powerful bazooka, the exhilaration one feels is outstanding.
Shadow Stalker: “Tricky and Versatile in Attacking”
Fights wielding both a melee weapon and a shotgun. Has a characteristic combo that consists of him reloading while attacking. For advanced players.
Rather than rapid-fire damage, she is a skilled shooter who focuses more on dealing damage in one shot. Recommended for those who enjoy shooting games.
