Nindies@Home was held during E3 week in both North America and Europe. In Australia and New Zealand, however, there was a delay. This was due to classifications for the various demos that were required.

Nindies@Home will finally be coming to the two aforementioned territories on Friday. The same nine games will be playable at different points throughout the next few weeks:

31st July – 6th August – forma.8, Runbow, Extreme Exorcism
7th August – 13th August – Lovely Planet, RIVE, Typoman
14th August – 20th August – Freedom Planet, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Soul Axiom

Grabbing any of the downloads will provide a 15 percent discount when the full games launch.


It’s been a long wait, but SEGA has finally launched four new 3D Classics on the Australian 3DS eShop. 3D Outrun, 3D Fantasy Zone, 3D Fantasy Zone 2 and 3D Thunder Blade are all available as of now. Pricing is set at $6.50 each.


Atlus announced today that Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains is heading to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on July 2. The game will cost €29.99.

In North America, Atlus released Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains – where it is known as Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains – on May 12.

Atlus confirmed on its Twitter account today:


The Nindies@Home program went live on the North American and European Wii U eShops yesterday. This is a brand new initiative from the Big N, which lets fans preview nine upcoming indie titles for a limited time.

In Australia and New Zealand, this offer has yet to hit the eShop. Nintendo explained in North America and Europe that game demos need to be classified before they’re released in these territories – hence the delay. The company added, “We are currently working with the developers to make it happen in Australia and New Zealand.”

Here’s the full message from Nintendo’s Facebook page:

The Nindies@Home programme has been announced by Nintendo in North America and Europe, where fans can access free preview versions of nine Nindie games from Nintendo eShop for Wii U for a limited time.

Down Under, unlike America and Europe, game demos need to be officially classified before their release, therefore in this region we require more time for these titles to be made available.

We are currently working with the developers to make it happen in Australia and New Zealand.

We thank you for being patient. Please stay tuned for further
