I got Pokémon Rumble Blast, Kirby Mass Attack, and Okamiden!

Today until November 5th Target is holding a sale on all games in stock Buy 2 Get 1 Free. I got back an hour or two ago and picked up Pokémon Rumble Blast for the 3DS, and Kirby Mass Attack & Okamiden for the DS.

Apparently there was some glitch going around where you could Buy 1 & Get 1 Free but now the stores are starting to realize it and canceling the sales once management informs them of the error. Some people were able to take advantage of it while others were flat out denied. I didn’t even know about this glitch until after I got home with the games, lol. If I knew I would’ve picked up Professor Layton’s latest game for the DS, oh well.

I probably won’t be playing any of my new games today unless I get bored or annoyed with Solatorobo as I want to finish it before I start anymore games. Lets just say I have a big backlog. Kirby’s Return to Dreamland & Sonic Generations will be here on Monday & Tuesday respectively, so I am going to be a very very busy gamer for a good while.

They also had preorder cards for Super Mario 3D Land & Mario Kart 7 and both come with $5 Target gift cards when you pick them up, so I went and got those too. 🙂

Solatorobo GET!

So a possible contender for Game of the Year has arrived at my house today. The game is Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, a spiritual sequel to a game on the original PlayStation called “Tail Concerto”. Anyway, the game is said to be an action RPG I think? As of this writing I haven’t played it yet, currently I am listening to the awesome soundtrack that was included at no extra charge.

Thank you to XSEED Games who took it upon themselves to bring the game to North American gamers and for throwing in a cool bonus soundtrack CD. ❤

Fossil Fighters: Champions

Glad to see that the Nintendo DS is still getting support from Nintendo. Hopefully we’ll continue to see support in the future with more localized games from Japan. ^_^

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Bundle Highlights a Golden Autumn for Nintendo Games

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 29, 2011 – Leaves won’t be the only things turning gold this fall as Nintendo prepares to launch an extraordinary lineup of games for its Wii™, Nintendo 3DS™ and Nintendo DS™ game systems. At a recent meeting of GameStop retail store managers from across the United States, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing Scott Moffitt revealed new details about upcoming releases for several fan-favorite franchises:

  • A special limited-edition The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword bundle containing the game and a gold* Wii Remote™ Plus controller will be available when the game launches on Nov. 20.
  • Also for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, every copy in the initial production of the game will come packaged with a special music CD featuring orchestral arrangements of select songs that will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert.
  • Nintendo will launch the upcoming Tetris®: Axis game for Nintendo 3DS systems on Oct. 2.
  • The Professor Layton and the Last Specter™ game for the Nintendo DS family of systems will launch Oct. 17.

“Nintendo has something for you this fall, no matter what type of gamer you are, no matter what Nintendo system you’re playing,” said Moffitt. “Whether you’re looking for a world-spanning epic like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the pick-up-and-play puzzle fun of Tetris: Axis or the mind-bending adventure of Professor Layton and the Last Specter, we’ve got you covered.”

The limited-edition gold controller bundle for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be offered at a suggested retail price of $69.99. The game will also be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $49.99, though the gold controller will only be available as part of the special bundle. As an additional 25th anniversary treat for fans who purchase the game early, every copy in the initial production, whether sold by itself or as a part of the limited-edition bundle, will come with a free CD featuring select orchestral arrangements of iconic music spanning the history of the franchise which will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert performances in October 2011. For more information about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, visit http://www.zelda.com/skywardsword.

The original portable Tetris® game was a smash hit on the Game Boy™ system. The new Tetris: Axis game lets players use the magic of the Nintendo 3DS system to jump into the action in 3D without the need for special glasses. The game includes more than 20 different modes – some familiar, some new. Up to eight players can compete in wireless multiplayer battles, even if only one player has a game card**. Tetris: Axis also makes use of the augmented-reality and SpotPass™ features of Nintendo 3DS. Tetris: Axis is part of a stirring fall lineup for Nintendo 3DS that also includes Pokémon™ Rumble Blast(launching Oct. 24), Super Mario 3D Land™ (November) and Mario Kart™ 7 (December).

Professor Layton and the Last Specter for the Nintendo DS family of systems is the fourth installment in the Professor Layton puzzle adventure series. It begins a new trilogy that is a prequel to the original games, set three years before the events in Professor Layton and the Curious Village™. The game contains more puzzles than any in the series to date. As a North American exclusive to the overall Professor Layton and the Last Specter package, a bonus role-playing game called Professor Layton’s London Life™ containing more than 100 hours of additional content will be available to players from the start of the game.

Remember that Wii and Nintendo 3DS feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access.  For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wii or http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

* Note that the gold controller will simply be gold in color and will not contain any actual precious metals.

** Multiplayer mode requires multiple Nintendo 3DS systems, each sold separately.

First print run of Solatorobo comes with a Soundtrack!


XSEED Games has today revealed that the first print run of the Nintendo DS game releasing on September 22nd will come with a 24 song soundtrack CD!

According to Xseed, the CD has a mix of playful tunes that match the game’s light-hearted dialogue (see picture on right) and an orchestral score for Solatorobo: Red the Hunter’s epic battles.

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is due for release in North America on September 27th. The game has already been released in Europe as of July 1st.

I’m so excited for this game! I preordered it on Amazon a month or so ago when it was officially announced, and I am looking forward to listening to the soundtrack as well. Everyone do your part and pick up one of the very few last “hurrah’s” to come to the DS!
