CK_W7njUAAAftxD.jpg-orig

Today, Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI is headed to the Nintendo 3DS, PS4 and Nintendo NX. While Nintendo’s mysterious NX system was changed to a “we are looking into it” status, we find it VERY interesting that the RPG giant mentioned Nintendo’s newest project during today’s announcement. We don’t know what shape or form the new NX will take, but it is certainly an interesting development to hear from developers regarding the system. You can read all about the upcoming game, below:

Dragon Quest X and XI announced for the NX.
Two different games with the same story similar to Ni no Kuni.
Both games slated for 2016 release to coincide with series 30th anniversary.
The two games will still have the same core staff working on them.

North America: October 13, 2015
Europe: October 16th, 2015

$19.99 MSRP

Pre-Orders should be live at your favorite retailer: Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Gamestop, Amazon…you name it! To make as big of a splash as possible, and to let retailers know that they need to stock up, you should definitely pre-order now!! We’d consider it a huge personal favor; thanks in advance!

What’s in the box?!

The physical version of Shovel Knight contains everything we’ve released so far. First, there is the original Shovel Knight campaign with all the content you know and love! Also included is Shovel Knight’s first content update: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. Finally, there’s a full-featured Challenge mode with more than 50 crazy challenge levels to explore!

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)

Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Oh, and one more thing: every boxed copy of Shovel Knight will include a lavish instruction booklet similar to the Kickstarter reward. No 2-page inserts here! You deserve a full manual, to hold in your hot little shaking hands and pore over as you wait to get home!

This game is said to be one of the best out there so if you have yet to pick up the title, this seems like a pretty great deal.

Gamers Are Outraged With Metroid Prime Federation

CHrJQorVAAE-R-C.jpg-large

Everyone seems to be upset with Nintendo’s newly announced Metroid Prime Federation for 3DS. If you take a gander at the screen shot above, over 25,000 people have given the video a thumbs down and have been shown their disapproval for this “Metroid Prime” spinoff. Metroid Prime Federation was shown during Nintendo’s Digital Event for E3 2015 and I will be very interested to see how they handle this going forward.

I was not impressed at all with Nintendo this year.

Metriod Prime Federation Force Announced

An all new Metriod Prime has been announced and it is headed to Nintendo 3DS. The game, which features a number of character working together, looked pretty decent and may not be the Metriod Prime people were hoping for. The newly announced game was revealed during Nintendo’s Digital event for E3 2015.
