The Persona games have been around for a while. They didn't get much Western success until the release of Persona 3 for the PS2. Now we also have Persona 4 which did even better than 3. A few months back Atlus announced the newest Persona games. There was the obvious Persona 5 that we all expected, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold (I swear to god that's the real name), Persona 4: Dancing All Night, and the one I will be talking about today Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. Now all of theses games look very interesting. Not much is known about Persona 5 but we can expect it to be a traditional Persona game. Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold is a fighter much like Persona 4 Arena, Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a dancing game much like Project Diva, and Persona Q is the first 3DS/ Nintendo Persona title. I'm a big fan of the Persona games and this one looks interesting. It takes the main characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 and intertwines their story's in some way. The game has a interesting art style that fans of the Persona series aren't going to be use to. Instead of the traditional anime style they went for a chibi look. Now even though it has a more "childish" look to it I believe it will still be a great title. And I'm really hoping this new art style won't turn people down. I'm not sure why they would have even chosen this style. It's clear that  the 3DS can handle the normal Anime graphics. Maybe they just wanted something new. I for one welcome the game with open arms.

Not much is known about the game yet other than what we have seen. I've seen some people compare it to Etrian Odyssey. But I'm not familiar enough with this title to make any real comparisons. This isn't the first Persona games to mix the characters from other games but it's the first "traditional" title we have ever seen. I'm excited for this game and all of the other new Persona games coming out. Even Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which I can't see getting a western release. All we can do now is keep our eyes open for more new on the games.

Best deal yet for getting your hands on a Nintendo 3DS XL. Originally priced at $199.99 the handheld is now going for only $149.99 all week at Target.

Nintendo of America tweeted the following:

" Score! All Nintendo #3DS XL systems are $149.99 in-store at @Target this week!"

So just around the start of the month Nintendo released Miiverse on the Nintendo 3DS. Miiverse started out on the Wii U and it's  popularity since then has grabbed it's attention to the 3DS owners.

Now that Miiverse is in my possession I'm going to share my thoughts on it.
Miiverse let's players discuss anything involving the games on both Nintendo platforms through communities. Essientially it's like Twitter, kind of. I really enjoy how organized everything is. Once you get the hang of the layout you will instantly get hooked on it, like I did, maybe.

The entire Miiverse community is helpful and friendly at all times. But, there's always that one smartass that comes in and ruins the fun for everyone.
Miiverse is fairly strict, unfortunately, but keep in mind that the younger demographic is on Miiverse too.

Nintendo Online has reported that the 2014 spring release of Super Smash Brothers was actually a mistake. There actually hasn't been a set release date for the game.
"As we were told today, the statement about the spring release for Super Smash. Bros. was a mistake. Therefore no actual date has been set except for the year 2014. Mario Kart 8 will still be released in spring 2014."

Last night Cranky Kong was just recently announced and was confirmed as a playable character for the upcoming Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo 3DS. Now there's supposedly a fifth playable character. During an interview Reggie hinted at the fifth playable character by stating:

"We're not going to reveal a fifth for you."

After being asked if there will be another hidden character. Could he mean that they will reveal it later on or will we have to play it ourselves to find out?

Masahiro Sakurai, series creator, revealed on Miiverse that Majora’s Mask will appear as an assist trophy in the upcoming Super Smash Bros on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

"Here’s a new Assist Trophy–the Skull Kid! I repeat, it’s an Assist Trophy, not a new fighter. The characters announced on the website are the fighters."

Tales of the Abyss was ported over to the Nintendo 3DS which was originally for the Playstation 2. I haven't played the PS2 version but from the looks of it, it's a pretty good damn ported version.

You're Luke, a son from the royal family of kimlasca, and he's never stepped one foot out of the manor. Not to mention that he lost all his memories 7 years ago. As he was out training with Master Van a mysterious character by the name of Tear comes out of nowhere and tries to attack Van.
I won't go into the plot anymore to avoid potential spoilers. It'll unfold as you go on, as a typical RPG should.

The battle style is completely different than your typical turned base strategies. It mixes more with a hack and slash style. You only control the person that you're playing as. So you cannot select attacks for your allies that are out in the battle.
It keeps the battles feeling fresh as you can play as your teamates during battles, you can't switch during battle so you'll have to select them before you encounter 
an enemy. It has a variety of close range and long range characters.

One thing that I dislike about the fact you can't switch during battle is that when the character you're playing as dies you have to sit watching the rest of the battle go on. This is especially annoying when you're in the middle of a boss battle.

You can throw away all of you hatred towards random encounters as the enemies are visible on both the overworld and in the dungeons. You can easily choose wether or not you want to battle. But, level grinding is kind of vital in order to progress without any trouble.

The game's story is kind of lengthy so it will definitely keep you busy.
The overworld has quite abit to explore ranging from dungeons to cities. Later in the game you can even travel by sea.

If you're looking for an RPG on the 3DS, Tales of Abyss is definitely worth the buy. I give Tales of Abyss an 7.5/10.

To help keep the anticipation of the upcoming release of A Link Between World's at an all time high Nintendo releases The Misadventures of Link on the Nintendo 3DS application, Nintendo Video.

One Piece: Romance Dawn has been announced for North America. The game will be arriving on the Nintendo 3DS on February 11th of next year. You will be able to purchase the game through the Nintendo 3DS eShop or through retailers.

Recently Nintendo put out a demo for Sonic Lost Worlds on the Nintendo 3DS eshop prior to their latest Nintendo Direct that happened earlier this week. One of many things mention was this demo and I've found spare time to set back and play what the demo has to offer and so these are my impressions of playing the demo.

The demo only has one available mode to choose from and that is the story mode. It gives you cutscene of Sonic riding ontop of Tails' airplane chasing after eggman for whatever reason and Sonic spots something called the "Lost Hex", according to Tails. The cutscene isn't bad but the quality of it is terrible. It's blurry and just out right a pain to watch. Not to mention the new voice acting. Which I'm not calling bad per say but it's weird not hearing Sonic's original voice. Actually, everyone's original voice actor for that matter is comepletely new. Amy is a thousand times annoying than she previously was just from her new voice which I will not further discuss because of it's brutality it did on my ears.

The first level it gives you is actually decent. Alongside with decent controls and okay visuals. It's pleasantly smooth. The only complaint I have is that it didn't feel fast pace as it should have.

After completing the first level you are rewarded with another beautiful cutscene! Killing your ears with Amy's previously mentioned voice. Once that is all over you're greeted to the game's "overworld". There's nothing to do there so it offers you another level (Windy Hill: Zone 1) to try out. I felt like this one was to allow players to practice jumping. As to the first level (the tutorial) was more about the running mechanic.

It opens up a new level only to tease you about getting the full version of the game. Not allowing you to have any access to it. It pretty much leaves you off with that. Leaving you with only two demo levels you already played through without a proper "thanks for playing the demo" or for not even telling you that the demo is over.

With the game's soundtrack and level design it's without a doubt comparable to Super Mario Galaxy. But saying that does not mean it's as good. It just has alot of similarities to it.

Nintendo has opened the site for The Legend if Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. They have already released brand new gameplay footage and additional information on the dungeons and the items that we will be seeing in the game.

Reggie Fils-Aime has tweeted on Nintendo of America's Official Twitter account and posted an image revealing he's played 300+ hours on Animal Crossin: New Leaf.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will be taking up 5482 blocks on your SD card when downloading it from the Nintendo eshop. That's around to 685MB. If you really want to have the downloaded copy then you might want to consider purchasing a new SD card. At that point you may be better off with the physical copy of the game.

Here's the latest screenshot of Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS. Showing Mega Man and Pikachu in a battle but it seems Pikachu just wants to play around!

I haven't watched the anime, Attack on Titan, due to the lack of dubs that I may or not be aware of but from everything I've seen it looks pretty damn good. Not to mention that it would make an awesome transition to the video game market from the amazing battle scenes I've witness from snippets of the anime.

Anyways, it just came to my attention that there was an Attack on Titan game just announced in the last couple of months for the Nintendo 3DS. From the trailer it looks quite amazing. The disappointing part is that it's only going to be released in Japan as of it. But I don't have any hopes seeing it make a western release unfortunately.

Do you have a Hulu subscription and own a Nintendo 3DS? Well I'm sure you've been waiting to see the two come together. Finally, it has arrived! Instant streaming straight from Hulu plus on your 3DS! But be warned, shows don't appear in 3D!

The producer of one of Nintendo's greatest franchise, The Legend of Zelda, Eiji Aonuma, answered a question regarding to the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for Nintendo 3DS at his panel during comic con.
He responded by saying,  “finish this game, (A Link Between Worlds), and that may give you your answer.”
His response could be hinting that it's going to happen or he's just tied of the repeated question and just wants the fans to focus on the upcoming installment.

New artwork has been revealed of the upcoming 3DS Zelda title, A Link Between Worlds. It appears to be a villian that is resembling alot like Ganondorf. Nothing else has been provided alongside the image as of yet.

Are you having trouble getting new public works requests from your villagers? Stress no more as there is a simple solution!
Grab your wetsuit and head at to the farthest corner of your ocean and idol there for 5 mins. Head back onto shore and make eye contact with each villager and they should come up to you. Sometimes you will have to repeat the process because they have something else to say. To help avoid that fill your inventory with bells.
Remember, you can only get one request per day.

Upon playing with your friends on Animal Crossing: New Leaf you've come across a sudden mood killer. The notorious Error Messages that pop out of nowhere for no reason what so ever.
It's not the connection to blame, it should be the programming. Hating on such a terrific game is really saddening but everything can't be perfect I suppose.
Hopefully in the near future they just might patch this problem with an upcoming update. We can only hope and assume so.
