Halloween is around the corner ladies and gentlemen, and as far as I’m concerned, there’s no better way (or game) to get you in the spirit of all things creepy and dead than Corpse Party. A series that I love dearly is finally making its way over to 3DS for the western audience to enjoy, and it brings along extra chapters not before seen in any of the previous ports and iterations.

All of Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s online services will undergo maintenance early next week. Here are the exact times:
- 6 PM PT (October 31st) – 8 PM PT (October 31st)
- 9 PM ET (October 31st) – 11 PM ET (October 31st)
- 2 AM in the UK (November 1st) – 4 AM in the UK (November 1st)
- 3 AM in Europe (November 1st) – 5 AM in Europe November 1st
Given that next week, a special Animal Crossing-focused Nintendo Direct will air on November 2nd, it seems likely that this maintenance is to prepare for the big update that was announced earlier this year, which, among other things, will add amiibo support to New Leaf. The update will probably go live after the Direct.

If you’re interested in some new plushies based on Pokemon Sun/Moon, you may want to swing by your local GameStop. Customers are starting to notice that variations based on Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio are appearing. Each one is from the Pokemon Center and goes for $14.95.
