Chronoblade, announced earlier this year, is now known as Aeteno Blade. By changing the name, developer Corecell Technology hopes to avoid possible confusion with Square Enix’s games.

Aeteno Blade is a side-scroller featuring seven levels, puzzles, and 3D cut-scenes. Players will be able to perform combos by jumping, using the full moveset, and taking advantage of their sword. The camera will either zoom in or zoom out a bit based on what’s happening on screen.

At the moment, Corecell hopes to wrap up production by January 2013. It will most definitely be a 3DS eShop release and, depending on interest, it could arrive at retail as well.


Fractured Soul hasn’t arrived on the European or Australian eShops yet, but its release is still in the cards. The game has finally been approved for PAL regions, so it should launch in the near future. A release in mid-January is sounding likely at the moment.

The following message was posted on the Fractured Soul Facebook page yesterday:

“Some good news! Fractured Soul has finally been approved for Nintendo eShop in Europe/Australia/NZ! We don’t have a firm release date yet, but probably around mid January.”


Suda51 delivers a well-produced mecha anime that’s as hyperactive as it is hyper-nationalistic. But how’s the actual game?


Level 5 really haven’t been having a whole lot of luck when it comes to the 3DS. Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven might still bring in the cash, but the company’s attempts at starting new IPs like Time Travelers and Girls RPG: Cinderella Life sold poorly. But perhaps their biggest bomb of all was Guild 01, a compilation of quirky games that sold fewer than 15,000 copies upon its first week of release despite having some well-known game designers collaborating on the project. Oddly enough, Level 5 are now giving Guild 01 a second chance by rereleasing most of the games in the compilation through the 3DS eShop. The first of these titles to be available outside of Japan is Liberation Maiden, a 3D shooter heavily inspired by Japanese cartoons – specifically the kind where plot is second to cool robots flying around and blowing stuff up.

Ninja Gaiden will finally be hitting the North American 3DS eShop next week. That’s according to yesterday’s store update, which lists a December 6 date and price of $4.99.

The following titles are also “coming soon” to the 3DS eShop:

Murder on the Titanic (previously confirmed for December 6, $7.99)
Mighty Bomb Jack
Crimson Shroud (previously confirmed for December 13, $4.99)
Wario Land 2 (previously confirmed for December 20)
Fluidity: Spin Cycle (previously confirmed for December 27)

The third digital release from Guild01 will be Crimson Shroud. Earlier today, Level-5 confirmed a December 13 release in both North America and Europe. It will cost $4.99 / £4.99 when it launches.
