Selectsoft will publish “101 DinoPets 3D” on the 3DS eShop early next month.

As the name implies, players can interact over 101 dino friends. You can teach your “pet” how to dance, jump and fly. It’s also possible to enter pet shows to earn toys, food and furniture. If that wasn’t enough, the dinosaur can be dressed with hats and glasses. The game includes several mini-games involving the vet, bathing, and more.

101 DinoPets 3D launches on January 10 for $4.99.

Mutant Mudds Deluxe

– Planned for release in Q1 2013
– “coming together nicely”
– New content and more details coming in January

ATV Wild Ride 3D

– Nearly done
– Tweaking taking place
– If all goes well, will be submitted in January

– One more surprise to show for ATV

Wii U

– “We will have one surprise to show off on the Wii U. What could that be?”
– New game
– “is super secret”
– Can’t say anything right now
– Sounds like it may be at PAX East in March (either trailer only or playable)

Japan has been getting classic Mega Man 3DS eShop titles on a regular basis. That hasn’t been the same in North America, but Capcom finally confirmed that the NES title will arrive starting on December 27 and throughout 2013.

Capcom senior community manager Brett Elston was recently about the hurdles in releasing the Mega Man games on the North American eShop. Ultimately, the delay came about since Capcom wanted to have the retro titles lined up for Mega Man’s 25th anniversary.

“Now that we’ve announced the release date of these titles (starting with MM1 on 12/27), we’ll come clean and say most of those ‘hurdles’ were getting everything lined up for the anniversary period. We wanted to have MM1 arrive as close to 12/17 as possible, which required close coordination with Nintendo.”

Elston also commented on whether he believes Mega Man could still find a home at retail. He noted that it is “entirely possible we’ll find an idea or concept that warrants a full disc release, but for the immediate future, digital feels like the right way to experience Mega Man.”

“It’s entirely possible we’ll find an idea or concept that warrants a full disc release, but for the immediate future, digital feels like the right way to experience Mega Man. What form it takes, and which platform(s) it appears on, would need to suit the game and the intended audience. That said, the perceived quality of a digital title should be quite strong these days; just because something arrives via download and not in a box doesn’t mean it’s ‘lesser’ in some way.”

Capcom kicked off Mega Man’s 25th anniversary by releasing Street Fighter X Mega Man and confirming classic games for the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe.

Fans may be wondering: is anything else planned for the 3DS? Senior community manager Brett Elston was recently asked if the company has any plans to offer something more beyond Virtual Console games on the eShop – specifically a 3D Classic.

“A great idea, and one I’ve brought up before. It’s just something both Capcom Japan and Nintendo would have to collaborate on. Never say never, but no official word at the moment.”

Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson also commented on additional Wii VC releases and “3DS stuff” on the official boards:

“I’m not sure if there’s any more Wii VC projects in the works at all with our online group at this point. I will say that they’ve at times just popped out of no where in the past so my lack of knowledge shouldn’t be taken as gospel. These projects [sic] aren’t on our usual product roadmap. I’m hoping the group is looking at 3DS stuff though. We’ve made some requests for a few things to be explored based upon feedback here. We’ll see what happens.

BlayzBloo: Clone Phantasma is launching on the Japanese eShop next week. But could a western release be in the cards?

You may remember that Aksys localized the original, BlayzBloo: Super Melee Action Battle Royale, for DSiWare back in 2010. There seems to be at least some interest in bringing over the eShop sequel, as the official BlazBlue Facebook page states the following:

So – BlayzBloo: Clone Phantasma on 3DS then. This is coming out on the 26th of December in Japan as many of you know – but we’re curious. How many of you would like to see this get a western release?

Hit ‘like’ if you want this to come out in the west.

Comment if you played the previous BlazyBloo!
