Beyond the Labyrinth first trailer


Beyond the Labyrinth finally has a game trailer starring a clumsy girl who we have no name for at the moment. The game is set to make its playable debut at Tokyo Game Show in Japan next month. We’ll be sure to bring you more details on this adventure game for the 3DS.

I have been really interested in this game since it was first revealed (even with the bullshots). I’m sure it will look much better with the 3D turned on though.

Ni no Kuni PS3 gets dated for Japan


Ni no Kuni PS3, the hot collaboration between game developer Level-5 and anime studio Studio Ghibli is finally coming to fruition. The game will see released in Japan on November 17th priced at ¥8,800.

The first Ni no Kuni game on the Nintendo DS was released last December in Japan, so almost a year between releases.

Hopefully Level-5 deems the PS3 game fit for a western release as I would love to be able to understand the story and characters.

Gundam The 3D Battle GET!

Finally, my copy of Gundam The 3D Battle for Nintendo 3DS arrived from Hong Kong. I got the Japanese Flare Red 3DS back on Monday, so now I finally have a game to play for it. I’ll be sure to do some impressions of the game later on when I have the time, and perhaps a video as well. ^_^

CRUSH3D Q/A and new pics!

Below is a Q/A article on the upcoming CRUSH3D game and some new pictures. Please let us know what you think and is this a game you’re interested in purchasing?




Can you explain what Crush is? i.e. what is the design idea behind it?

“CRUSH3D focuses on manipulating the environment to solve puzzles. In the game you have the ability to “Crush” the world, which flattens everything from 3D to 2D; you can use this ability to traverse huge gaps by bringing platforms closer together, or flattening the world from above to get to areas that would normally be too high to reach in 3D.
