Nintendo will be releasing the special Zelda 3DS XL system in Japan in late December. It was previously announced for Europe, and a GameStop Black Friday ad leak confirmed the handheld for the US as well.

Amazon Japan started taking pre-orders for the Zelda 3DS XL earlier today. Just 700 units were available for pre-order, and within minutes, consumers snatched them all up. Given the small amount available, that should come as no surprise.

GungHo Online Entertainment has given a new update on the overseas release of Puzzle & Dragons Z. While there’s still no set date, president Kazuki Morishita told Siliconera it will happen “sooner or later.”

“Nothing has been finalized, we don’t know how we will release it or have a price, but we will release it sooner or later.”

Morishita also spoke about Puzzle & Dragons Z is more RPG-oriented compared to the smartphone version. In doing so, he revealed how the 3DS title “has always been in the works” – meaning it was planned from the series’ very beginning.

“Initially, when we were still tinkering with the concept for the smartphone version in summer of 2011, we already started talking about the 3DS release as well. The 3DS version has always been in the works, we have always been planning it while we were coming up with the smartphone version concept. So, it isn’t a new idea we came up with. We were always going to add that RPG element into the game.”


Imageepoch is working on a 3DS remake of Toushin Toshin II, a PC title from the 90’s.

“Toushin Toshi” carries many of the same elements as the original – including the completely not safe for work adult content.

The 3DS game will be released in Japan on January 30. Pricing is set at 6,279 yen. Alicesoft, the original Toushin Toshin II developer, is supervising the remake.
