FIRE EMBLEM: SHADOW DRAGON COMES TO NINTENDO DS THIS CHRISTMAS
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection action introduced to classic RPG for first time
Find a sacred sword and use it to save a kingdom as Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon heads to Nintendo DS! For the first time in the classic Fire Emblem RPG series, there is the option of multiplayer action over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, adding a whole new dimension of gameplay and strategic planning that can be shared with friends and fans of the series.
Using skill, tactical battle-planning and no small amount of magic, players must embark on a quest to destroy the resurrected dark dragon Medeus, who seeks to conquer the entire world. Charging into battle in Europe on 5 December, 2008, the game is based on Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, which was created in 1990 for the NES console but never released in Europe, despite becoming the most popular in the series in Japan. Now the remake of this NES classic has the popular weapon triangle system integrated for strategic enhancement.
One hundred years since Medeus was slain and the Kingdom Altea founded on the continent of Akaneia, Medeus is back and it falls to exiled prince, Marth, to save the kingdom from ruination. Success for Marth and his comrades rests on finding his father’s sacred sword, Falchion and the Fire Emblem. Only when these are united in Marth’s hands will he be able to confront the dark pontifex Gharnef, avenge the murder of his father and kidnap of his sister, destroy Medeus once and for all and win back the kingdom of Altea.

TITLE: Mushroom Men – Rise of the Fungi
DEVELOPER: Red Fly Studio
GENRE: Action Adventure
RELEASE DATE: November, 2008
DS Weapon Feature
In order to survive in the world of Mushroom Men, players must concoct grand scale weapons out of mere knickknacks. The arsenal is entirely based on how creative players can get. But modifying flimsy weapons such as sticks, batteries and nails into deadly creations is only a fraction of the arsenal at the player’s disposal. The most valuable armaments will be fusions between multiple weapons already in possession. As a result of the wide range of weapons that can be created in Mushroom Men, players must choose one of three classes which will determine which weapon types they will specialize in, based on their class’ fighting style.
There are three main classes in Mushroom Men: Sage, Scout, and Heavy. Sage specializes in Spore powers. Spore powers are magical skills that give wielders the power to move inanimate objects and attack enemies, among other abilities. However, Sages are very weak at hand-to-hand and ranged combat, leaving them almost completely dependent on their powerful but limited magical abilities. Scouts are expert ranged attackers. However, their agility and attack accuracy only benefit them at a distance from enemies. Once in close range, Scouts are quickly overwhelmed by moderate to large numbers of attackers. The Heavy class excels in melee combat, relying on their brute strength to quickly overtake opponents in tight-quarter battles. Unfortunately, their brawn also makes them very slow fighter, making them easy prey for large groups of well-equipped opponents.
