Europe

We finally have some news about the Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack for Europe. In case you didn’t know, the Striker Pack contains both Azure Striker Gunvolt games in one retail package. The pack’s release in Europe has been unclear for a while, but it seems like we finally have clarity now.

Today, the Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack was rated by PEGI, meaning it was cleared for release in most European countries – and the rating lists Yacht Club Games as the publisher, who are also publishing the pack in North America. Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 was released on the European eShop yesterday – the Striker Pack doesn’t have a release date yet, but it hopefully shouldn’t take much longer.

While Paris Games Week is not as big of a deal as gamescom or E3, it’s still a nice convention that you should definitely check out if you can. However, if you’re attending this year, don’t expect to see Nintendo there as well. The company confirmed to jeuxvideo.com that they would not be attending Paris Games Week 2016, which takes place from October 27th to October 31st, because it “did not fit their annual plan”.

Update: The same Volcanion has been announced for Norway as well. It will be available for download from Gamestop and Neo Tokyo stores, as well as serial codes from Gamzone and Spillsjappa, all available from October 1 through November 23.


Starting in October, Volcanion, the final Mythical Pokemon from generation 6, will be distributed in various countries. Details have now been announced for the distribution in Sweden: Gamestop, Webhallen and Spel & Sånt stores will carry codes that allow you to get Volcanion.

Interestingly, this “Swedish” Volcanion will be similar to the one distributed in Japan in that it carries the Rage Candy Bar item and knows Mist – the one that’ll be distributed in other Western countries carries an Assault Vest and knows Explosion instead.

Some rumors are starting to circulate regarding the status of Wii U with European retailers. Supposedly, they’ll be unable to order additional stock after October 1 in most countries. It would suggest that European stores can order Wii U units for the holiday, with a discontinuation taking place after that.

There have also been rumors this week of Nintendo inviting European retailers to an event in Germany. However, it’s unclear if the information about Wii U was shared there.

A few months ago, Corpse Party 3DS was announced by XSEED for localization. In North America, the game should be out sometime within the next month or so. We hadn’t heard about anything for Europe, though that has now changed.

A listing on the eShop reveals that Corpse Party is in fact planned for PAL regions. Additionally, it’ll apparently be launching on October 26 in Europe – meaning we can probably expect it around the same time in North America. That date might be slightly off since games don’t usually launch for Nintendo platforms digitally on Wednesdays, but… we’ll see.

As for the price, it’s €29.99, and XSEED will apparently be publishing (rather than Marvelous).
