Inti Creates’ eShop hit Azure Striker Gunvolt has just reached 100,000, the official Twitter for the game just tweeted.

This is certainly a much deserved milestone for this fantastic platformer. Have you played Azure Striker Gunvolt yet? A demo was just released a few weeks ago and is now available for download in the 3DS eShop. A sequel for the game is currently in the works.



The new Stella Glow trailer is officially here after going dark since its announcement back in October of last year. This neat looking RPG is slated to come out in Japan on June 4th. No word on a western release.

Though news and details on this game have been scarce, you can get a good idea of what Stella Glow is all about here and here

The upcoming Super Mario line of amiibo, which launches March 20th, brings Toad alongside Mario, Peach, Bowser, Luigi and Yoshi. We’ve known for a while that Captain Toad would have amiibo functionality, and that Toad would be connected, but we never knew HOW it would work. Well, Nintendo just released this quick video to show off what it’s like once you scan in the lovable character.

Those that haven’t had the chance to play Captain Toad yet and are excited for the upcoming Super Mario amiibo line now have more incentive than ever to pick it up. Also noted in the video, Japan has the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker amiibo bundle now dated for a March 26th release. No word yet on the bundle launching west. You can check out the boxart¬†here

According to a report from Famitsu, it seems that, unlike Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, all Theatrhythm Dragon Quest DLC will be free. Yes, all.

For those that are a fan of the series, and an admirer of all the compositions that make up and accentuate Square Enix’s games, you know this is exciting news and a great way to play through all of your favorite tracks and gorgeous pieces of music.



Just a few days ago we reported that a retailer in South Africa had a few listings up for amiibo for¬†the¬†upcoming Splatoon. The amiibo listed had both “Boy” and “Girl” versions, plus a “Squid” edition that would be bundled with the game. Though nothing has been made official from Nintendo, it seems Splatoon’s eShop page makes mention of the usage of amiibo, further giving this evidence merit. Now though the amiibo compatible could very well be those previously released, it certainly makes you think if Splatoon-based amiibo really may be on the way. I, for one, certainly welcome the notion of having a Splatoon amiibo line.



Third generation legendary Kyogre is now available for capture in¬†Pok√©mon Shuffle when you check in. This special event to catch Kyogre will last until March 23rd, so get it while there’s still time!

Another thing to note, since the launch of¬†Pok√©mon Shuffle, we’ve had a previous event in which you could catch Mew for the first three weeks following¬†Pok√©mon Shuffle’s release, but it seems as though the chance to catch Mew has now¬†been prolonged by two weeks. If you haven’t been able to catch Mew yet, now you have another shot!
