No really. Despite this being the age of worldwide release dates, Nintendo not delaying most of their games for months on end and digital distribution, only Europe is affected by Mario Party Island Tour’s delay until 2014. In the US it’s coming on November 22nd, Japan sometime during the holiday season and other countries will get it on similar dates.
Oh wow, this is a pleasant surprise isn’t it? Yes, it’s been announced at today’s Nintendo Direct presentation that Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney will be released in Europe in early 2014. There’s also a trailer for the game, which can be seen here: So, are you excited for this? Happy that Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney is finally being released outside of Japan in the near future?
Yes, you heard that right, Nintendo of Europe have officially confirmed on their website page for the game. So it’s just under a week left for European fans if they want to get FlipNote Studio 3D! Are you excited for it? Will you be downloading it on August 1st? Source: http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-3DS-download-software/Flipnote-Studio-3D-763095.html
Yep, at least one retailer has dispatched it to their customers already, as can be seen by this topic: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/704054-mario-and-luigi-dream-team/66684256 Here’s a picture showing their Mario & Luigi Dream Team game/box and their username right next to it for proof: So if you’re in Europe and want to see if you can get the game early, try and go through either http://www.flubit.com/ or http://graingergames.co.uk/today, since those are the companies involved in this early release fiasco.
Here’s the box art for the European versions of Pokemon X and Y, namely the German versions. As you can tell, they look much like the US ones: Still, I guess the USK rating logo could be just a tad smaller, right? I mean, it’s kind of intrusive at the moment, especially compared to the relatively small ESRB one. But those are the European box art designs for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.
Seems like it’s going to be released at much the same time as the US version if Nintendo of Europe’s official site is correct. Here’s what they say about the game’s release date: Flipnote Studio 3D is a free application, scheduled for release on August 1st 2013 And so there you have it. FlipNote Studio 3D is heading for Europe on August 1st, and is probably well worth the download for anyone who liked the DSi version. Source: Nintendo UK FlipNote Studio 3D Website
It’s not particularly different from the US or Japanese box art, but there are a few minor differences. Can you spot them? The first thing you’ll notice is that instead of blue, the box art is in yellow. Not sure why this is, maybe it’s yet another example of the WarioWare games randomly changing the colour of their boxes in different regions (like how WarioWare Touched comes in an orange box in the US and a yellow box in Europe). It also lacks the subtitle underneath that the US version added. Not a bad thing, the US subtitle made very little sense and was near enough completely unreadable, so getting rid of it was probably a good thing. Either way, […]
That’s pretty good as far as release dates go, just five days after the US version’s release. Here’s what they say in their official announcement/press release: Wario and his zany friends are back in Game & Wario, a brand new, colourful collection of crazy games exclusively for Wii U! Launching on 28th June, the game utilises the unique setup of the Wii U GamePad controller and the TV screen in innovative and exciting ways for a Wario experience like no other that will keep you coming back for more. In Single Player, there are twelve games to enjoy that turn your GamePad into a variety of different objects for different gameplay challenges: use it as a camera, a bow that […]
It doesn’t tie in with any upcoming game or have a fancy limited edition design, but it’s a new colour of 3DS XL regardless. It’s also only been confirmed for release Europe rather than the US or Japan, so don’t expect to see it for sale in GameStop any time soon. This new model of 3DS XL will be released on May 31st 2013, and here are some pictures of said system: And here’s a picture of the box it’ll be sold in: Either way, it’s a new 3DS XL design that’s currently exclusive to the UK and Europe, so it might be worth buying if pink’s your favourite colour or you just want a ‘different’ style of 3DS when […]
This won’t affect the game itself given that the actual title is hitting Europe, but it does mean the special edition with art book and other freebies isn’t going to be available in Europe. So no art book, soundtrack CD and poster for us outside of the US and Japan. Above: Don’t expect to be able to buy this version in Europe. Well, this kind of sucks. I mean sure it’s not the end of the world, but come on. Would it really take that much more effort to translate an art book or CD into different languages? The former probably only has a limited amount of words per page, and the latter would only need the track listing translated […]
