Legends of Yore Coming to Wii U & Maybe 3DS

Today we’re pleased to announce that we are working with Coke & Code. We’re now co-developers working on their game “The Legends of Yore”. What we will do is take Legends of Yore and make it a console version, but “totally different”. We will respect the mechanics and the world of Yore, but we will implement some changes and add new content.
– New engine
– New revamped interface
– Adapted controls to console
– New character customization options
– New content
Those are just some of the new things what we plan to implement in the game. This really will be a “Legends of Yore Remaster”. The release plans for the game are: First on PC and Nintendo Wii U, with possibilities of launch the game later in PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS. About the launch date, maybe between august or September.

miiverse logo1 Miiverse Will Undergo Extensive Changes This Summer

Your Screenshot Album

Saving your screenshots in this album will be so easy, you’ll build up a collection of memories from the games you love in no time!

◆ You can save up to 100 screenshots in this album.
◆ This album is your own private space. It won’t be visible to other users.

Your Play Journal

Keep a record of your own unique gaming experiences by writing journal entries about games as you play them! Creating a Play Journal entry will be as simple as opening Miiverse during gameplay.

◆ Each Play Journal entry will include a screenshot that shows what was happening in the game when it was written. Only software titles that don’t support the taking of screenshots will be exempt from this rule.

Communities will also be getting a overhaul as posts will now be categorized to make browsing for them easier. There will be three categories called Play Journal Entries, Drawings, and Discussions.

Some Other Changes

  • As the Play Journal feature is a replacement for posting to your activity feed, you won’t be able to post to your activity feed after the redesign.
  • After the redesign, the limitations on posting quickly in succession will become less strict. You’ll be able to post a combined total of 30 posts or comments per day. (In-game posts will not be included in this total.)

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX – Beyond the Music

When Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, MEIKO, and KAITO take center stage in Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX this September, there will be 48 full-length songs to play through – but that’s just a fraction of all the gameplay packed into the upcoming Nintendo 3DS™ rhythm game! 

ImageProxy.mvc?bicild=&canary=XzgtjBn6X8wHaVKy%2b4J78valoYYY4bFTdagsoqcVlIg%3d0&url=http%3a%2f%2ffiles.ctctcdn.com%2faeb08a09001%2f6832a31e b9d4 4bf3 9ee4 974343adb63b Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX   Beyond the Music

For the U.S. release, the songs in Project Mirai DX are fully rendered in Miku’s 3-D Nendoroid style, allowing players to customize their characters, or even swap them out in songs. One of the game’s special features is being able to change the character who performs a particular song – if you account for the additional vocal tracks, the playlist balloons up to 79 songs in total. 

ImageProxy.mvc?bicild=&canary=XzgtjBn6X8wHaVKy%2b4J78valoYYY4bFTdagsoqcVlIg%3d0&url=http%3a%2f%2ffiles.ctctcdn.com%2faeb08a09001%2f0841f4ed 4516 43a8 a691 73b824d67d9d Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX   Beyond the Music

Project Mirai DX blends traditional rhythm game elements with companion-based events, simple creativity tools, and sharable customization. During rhythm gameplay, players can customize the size, color, and even behavior of the rhythm icons, so as players get more comfortable with higher difficulties, they can adjust the display to fit their play style. 

 ImageProxy.mvc?bicild=&canary=XzgtjBn6X8wHaVKy%2b4J78valoYYY4bFTdagsoqcVlIg%3d0&url=http%3a%2f%2ffiles.ctctcdn.com%2faeb08a09001%2ff67b50cc 9cc7 4f87 8bbe 9d1f395d355b Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX   Beyond the Music

 Theatre mode lets players relax from tapping or button-pressing and watch the music video. The videos are browsable, so players can skip to their favorite parts, and make playlists of their favorite songs. It’s even possible to create scrolling messages on the videos (a la Nico Nico Douga), which can be shared via StreetPass, and updated via SpotPass. Theatre Mode also has “Jam Along” mode, which lets players interact and add their own sound flairs to songs!

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold Gets a Demo! + Bertrand – Reluctant Protector

This next one goes out to all the shield-carrying, plate-wearing, unsung heroes in all of RPG-dom. Sure, they may mitigate tons of lethal monster damage and keep the rest of your party safe with guard abilities, but at the end of the day, holding a shield just never gets the same respect as those flashy magic spells or the glint of cold steel as it hacks monsters in twain. 
WELL, TODAY IS YOUR DAY! We’re giving a big ol’ RPG salute to the key of any party – the tank. And in Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold’s Story Mode, your tank is Bertrand, the loyal (albeit reluctant) Protector. Your party comes across Bertrand and the war magus Chloe in the early areas of the Ginnungagap Ruins and they’ll join up with Flavio, Arianna, and you! 
The Protector’s skills are incredibly useful – early on they get abilities that boost a line’s defense, and skills to protect against elemental damage. They also can provoke enemies into attacking them, and even retaliate with shield attacks. And while Bertrand and Protectors are quite good at soaking up damage, they even have some abilities to heal themselves and allies as well. 
Protectors do have support and a few offensive skills, but their skillset leans overwhelmingly towards defense, so they’re probably best left to the tank role. 
YES! We’ve got a demo! Beginning July 14, anyone can download an Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold demo off Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS and check out the starting floor of Story Mode! Demo save data will transfer to the full game.
