SMT Devil Survivor Overclocked Screenshots

I am not totally surprised that Atlus is porting over their DS game to the 3DS. After all, why not try it with a new audience and prettier graphics compared to the original? I like the look of the art, everything just looks so much better now.

The official website can be found here. When you view the screenshots on their official site, the ones with the characters in them have voice clips. More screenshots after the break.

Iwata Asks: Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition


When did you have your first experience with video games?

The one I remember the most distinctly was with Space Invaders.3 My family always went out to the neighborhood café and had breakfast on Sunday mornings, and that café had a Space Invaders game.

You all should definitely give this one a read. I myself have felt a barrier to fighting games for several years, but the new features included in this edition of the game definitely set in stone that I will buy the game day one with my 3DS.

I love reading these because it lets you get to know the developers behind the names you read in the credits. Very insightful!

Pok√©mon Black & White Special Edition DSi Bundles


Starting March 6, Nintendo will offer consumers an especially exciting way to experience the new Pok√©mon‚ĄĘ Black Version and Pok√©mon White Version video games. Two limited-edition etched black and white Nintendo DSi‚ĄĘ bundles will be available at retailers while supplies last.

The black system bundles will be packaged with the Pok√©mon Black Version game, while the white system bundles will be packaged with a copy of the Pok√©mon White Version game. Both the black systems and white systems will feature the new Legendary Pok√©mon Reshiram‚ĄĘ and Zekrom‚ĄĘ etched onto the casing. Reshiram and Zekrom are among the more than 150 never-before-seen Pok√©mon introduced in Pok√©mon Black Version and Pok√©mon White Version. The bundles will also include a custom Pok√©mon Nintendo DSi carrying case. Each bundle will be offered at a suggested retail price of $179.99.

Players can enjoy the majority of the games’ features on any type of Nintendo DS‚ĄĘ system, but when played on the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL‚ĄĘ systems, players can use the games‚Äô new Xtransceiver device to engage in video chat with others after exchanging Friend Codes. Up to four players can use the Xtransceiver via a local wireless connection, and two players can experience the feature online via the Nintendo¬ģ Wi-Fi Connection service (broadband Internet access required). When played on an original Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite system, the feature enables voice chat. All players can exchange written messages using the touch screen.

The individual Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games will launch on March 6, and are now available for pre-order from major retailers throughout North America for a suggested retail price of $34.99 each. A deposit may be required for pre-orders. See individual retailers for details.

Wow amazing. I wish these would’ve came out in 2009 when I got my DSi at launch. Oh well, I still enjoy my Dialga & Palkia DS Lite that my brother got me in May 2007. I’m sure all the other Pok√©mon fans would enjoy this, if the 3DS wasn’t right around the corner in the same month!
