title update


Patches for two new retail games have been added to the European 3DS eShop. One for Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy+ is available now, with the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate update coming soon. We’ll update this post if we hear about similar availability in North America.


In a message posted to Vblank Entertainment’s website, the studio shared full details about what’s included in the new Retro City Rampage DX update. The patch is coming to Europe today, and North America soon.

Retro City Rampage DX will not remain consistent at 60 frames per second. On New 3DX, the game runs natively. Speaking of the New 3DS, Retro City Rampage DX also makes use of the C stick.

Today’s news from Vblank isn’t entirely about Retro City Rampage. In the post, the company confirms that another 3DS title will be made, but additional information was not revealed.

You’ll find the full post from Vblank below.

The long-awaited Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams patch can finally be downloaded in North America. Black Forest Games just recently put out the update, so grab it if you already haven’t! Once applied, sound will be properly emitted from the GamePad.

Thanks to SkarmGamer and dr_meow_blah for the tip.

Retro City Rampage DX’s upcoming update has a release date for Europe. Vblank Entertainment confirmed on Twitter that the patch is arriving this Thursday.

As for North America, it’ll take a bit longer. Vblank is waiting for the update to finish certification.


Today’s Super Smash Bros. 3DS update is a fairly sizable download. You’ll need 1,010 blocks of free space in order to get the patch on your SD card. It’s not huge by any means, though it’s larger than some titles on the eShop!


The 1.0.5 update for Super Smash Bros. 3DS is out now. Players in North America, Europe, and Japan can download the patch.

Today’s update is rather significant. amiibo figures are now supported, meaning players can train their fighters on the go. amiibo in Smash Bros. Wii U are compatible with the 3DS game.

Nintendo and Bandai Namco have also prepared a share mode. Players can post photos, replay data, and Mii Fighter data to the server to share with other users around the world. Other users can search and download the content. In addition, posting photos to Miiverse is now possible.

Read on below for the full update notes from Nintendo.

If you missed today’s European 3DS press release, you may not have seen the brief blurb about Smash Bros. It’s now confirmed that the amiibo update is due out tomorrow.

Below is the relevant blurb:
