The Fighters Generation has a bunch of concept art & screenshots posted from the upcoming DLC for Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Here’s some of it:
Apparently Japan is getting an E-Book service for the 3DS according to an article on Nintendo Everything. It will be called Bookstore Everywhere and is scheduled for release sometime in late October. Initially only manga titles will be available for 400 – 500 yen. Additional content is planned to come out later on.
If you picked up Kirby’s Dream Collection, you may have noticed this part of the instruction manual, which seems to hint at more Kirby games coming to the 3DS Virtual Console:
“As many of us have seen in recent years, Nintendo is a company that deals a good line in fan service. Nintendo has produced everything from the recent abundance of anniversary titles, collector’s books, cards, and pretty much anything else in the hope that fans can supplement their game collections and help celebrate their favorite characters.
One new addition to the Japanese Club Nintendo original goods, called Club Nintendo Picross, is essentially nothing but pure fan service. For a mere 80 Club Nintendo points, members can purchase a code that they can use on the 3DS eShop, which will then download to their 3DS consoles just like a normal download title.”
Here’s part of another Nintendo Life review, this time for Rising Board 3D:
“The endless runner craze isn’t about to end any time soon, and that’s understandable. The genre offers an experience that is both suited to quick play sessions and unique every time you boot it up. The DSiWare service even received a rough equivalent in I Must Run!, and now the eShop has Rising Board 3D, an endless surfer.”
Nintendo Life has a new review posted for the 3DS eShop title, Heavy Fire: Special Operations 3D. Here’s part of their review:
“Slowly but surely, Teyon is on its way towards a half-way decent entry in its Heavy Fire series of military pop shooters. After squeezing out two downloadable disasters and an inexplicable retail release, Teyon returns to the well with Heavy Fire: Special Operations 3D — a reloaded version of that first WiiWare gem, now with added eye-popping dizzles and much-welcome tweaks. It’s still not all that remarkable, but it’s possibly the most fundamentally sound entry so far.”

GoNintendo has posted some impressions from the Mario Chase attraction of Nintendo Land. Here’s a partial look at those impressions:
“Mario Chase could very well be the simplest game in the entire Nintendo Land collection. It’s basically a game of tag…that’s it. While it may sound like a bare-bones experience, I also believe Mario Chase is one of the most fun experiences in Nintendo Land. I haven’t found a Nintendo Land attraction that I don’t enjoy, but Mario Chase’s easy gameplay and addictive nature make it very hard to put down.
As I said, Mario Chase is a very simple game to play. Up to 4 players take on the roles of characters that are trying to capture Mario. The Mario player is playing on the GamePad. The 4 TV players have to run around the map and find Mario. The GamePad player has to keep away from the 4 chasers and run down the time limit to zero. That’s really all there is to it!”
Check out the link below for more of their impressions.
So far, none of the Level-5 games shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show are scheduled for a North American or European release according to a post on Kotaku. Though personally I wouldn’t be shocked to see Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney and Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies coming out in North America.
