Here’s Nintendo’s Most Up to Date Release Schedule

No surprises

Nintendo just updated its release global release schedule for the remainder of the calendar year, although it's disappointingly light on definitive dates for the company's biggest titles.


Kid Icarus Definitely Slips to 2012 in Europe

Still on course for 2011 elsewhere

Just as we reported three weeks ago, flagship 3DS title Kid Icarus: Uprising has overshot and will reach Europe in early 2012.


Virtual Hugs and High-Fives in Kinect Disneyland Adventures

Warning: you might cry

Forget your blasting, your fighting and your super-competitive sports games for a minute: games can be about love, too.


Had a really lovely email this morning that made yesterday's chaotic start to the day well worth it. Thanks, nice lady!

I'm having an OK day and bought a Coke Zero from the gas station. Raise the roof!

Nintendo Download: 28th July 2011 (Europe)

After a long wait we finally have the first new game to buy in Nintendo's 3DS software (download) category, as well as plenty of other downloadable content too. Let's see what's coming to Europe this week.

3DS eShop

Let's Golf! 3D (Gameloft, €6 / £5.40) — This isn't the first tee-off for Gameloft's sporting series, as we've already had Let's Golf! on DSiWare, which was pretty good. We'll have to wait and see if this 3D effort can beat its DSiWare predecessor.

3DS Virtual Console

Baseball (Nintendo, Game Boy, €3 / £2.60) — A real blast from the past, this simplistic take on the sport doesn't really stand up today, as our Baseball review explains.


GO Series: Portable Shrine Wars (Gamebridge, 200pts) — The latest miniature marvel from the folks at Gamebridge, Portable Shrine Wars has you transporting a shrine (or “Mikoshi”) on your back, barging past other mikoshi carriers and flinging your team members at your opponents. We'll see if it's worth the points soon.


The contents of my package from @risingstargames. What the devil is this stuff?!

This just arrived from @risingstargames! Exciting!

King of Fighters, Rune Factory III, Harvest Moon, DoDonPachi? @risingstargames might just be the best publisher _ever_.
