Mercenaries Saga 3 is already out in North America, as it arrived on the 3DS eShop last month. In Europe, the game is now dated for next week. A listing on the eShop has it down for January 12 with a €5.99 price point.

Here’s a look at the listing:


Circle Entertainment has put out a ton of games on the eShop over the years, so it’s no surprise that the company is interested in Switch. The publisher did actually attempt to apply for a Switch licence. However, CEO Chris Chao says “Nintendo wants us to be patient.”

That being said, Chao has some concerns about Switch. Since it supports engines like Unity and Unreal, developers will be able to easily make titles, and he’s unsure if the quality level can be maintained. Smaller developers surviving with a lot of competition could also be problematic.

Chao told Nintendo Life:

“Right now we are focusing on 3DS, Steam and PlayStation (probably VR); we tried to apply for a Switch license and Nintendo wants us to be patient. Personally I am a little bit worried about Switch (not the hardware), but I’m still willing to work on the platform.

If you want to know my worries, I have to say that if this platform can easily port the likes of Unity and Unreal, for gamers that’s cool to see so many titles come out, but how can we make sure game quality will stay at a high level? Maybe some indies will port 5-10 titles in 2 months; it’ll be hard for small developers to survive on the platform with such huge competition.”


Circle Entertainment released over 50 titles last year. In 2017, the company is looking to cut back a bit. Circle is looking to prepare 30 new games, which will be of higher quality.

One title we can likely expect to see is Sabaku no Nezumidan. That one was published in Japan last September, and comes from Arc System Works.

The trailer for Sabaku no Nezumidan below should give you a good idea about the gameplay:


Circle Entertainment promised that Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D is still on the way even though the game was announced over four years ago. We almost didn’t believe it, but now we have concrete proof of its existence.

Circle Entertainment has finally posted the very first screenshots from Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D. You can view them in the gallery below.

If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about with Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D, the original title on DSiWare was quite good, but went under the radar. Since games on the 3DS eShop tend to get more recognition, hopefully this new release will as well.

Circle Entertainment’s official channel on YouTube has just posted a new trailer for their game Gourmet Dream, available today on the North American 3DS eShop. Check it out below:

Circle Entertainment said it was localizing Gourmet Dream back in October. The game is now set for release this Thursday in North America with a $5 price point.

Here’s an overview from Nintendo’s website:

“Gourmet Dream is a management game in which you take up the role of a restaurant manager and help your shop to grow.

The aim of the game is to help your restaurant flourish until it is evaluated as an “S Rank” restaurant.

In order to do this, you will have to create a menu to suit your customer’s needs, hire and train staff that provide great food and service, and run promotions to increase the number of customers that come to your restaurant. In essence, you will be raising your store into a ‘Highly Esteemed Gourmet Restaurant’.”

We don’t have a date yet, but Gourmet Dream should also be heading to Europe sometime soon.

Circle Entertainment announced a North American release date for Mercenaries Saga 3 today. We’ll be seeing it very soon, as it’s scheduled for December 15.
