Tips For Playing Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is the newest installment in the popular tactics game series. Whether you’re a fresh faced rookie or a war weary strategist, there’s a few things you should know if you want to conquer the battlefield. Choose Your Difficulty Level Wisely You can pick one of two difficulty levels as well as play with or without permadeath. I recommend hard mode, which ups the stakes a little bit. Fire Emblem Echoes is already a tricky game but the added difficulty makes for far more interesting battles. It’s Okay To Play In Casual Mode One of Fire Emblem’s big hooks is that allies that die on the battlefield stay dead. This is my preferred way to play and I highly recommend it. If that seems a bit daunting though, it’s perfectly fine to play in Casual Mode, where your units simply retreat. Choose what’s most fun for you and your personal tastes. The important thing is to enjoy yourself. Don’t Forget About Mila’s Turnwheel No matter what mode and difficulty you are playing on, you will have access to Mila’s Turnwheel. This magical item allows you to rewind your actions if you make READ FULL STORY…

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia: The Kotaku Review

There’s a special kind of beauty in tactics games. Navigating the intricacies of battle and bringing your soldiers home alive is a unique thrill; half puzzle, half bloodbath. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia excels in providing such thrills. Rich combat and a well-presented narrative drive a satisfying experience, even if it might be a little too bogged down by its many systems. Advertisement Echoes, to be released May 19th on Nintendo 3DS, is a reimagining of the 1992 Famicom game Fire Emblem Gaiden. It repackages the basic narrative and strives to find a balance between older, more deliberate design sensibilities and the series’ more accessible 3DS entries like Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates. The end result is largely successful. The tactical depth arising from the reintroduction of older design elements leads to intense battles, while high-quality production brings the story to life. Players follow the tale of two characters in Fire Emblem Echoes. Alm is a wide-eyed peasant from a backwater village, while Celica is a devoted priestess. As children, they lived together in Alm’s village before disaster and intrigue tore them apart. The two embark on separate quests that will READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

DEAL: Get Monster Hunter Generations for only $19.99

I dunno about you, but I was pretty disappointed that Nintendo’s Switch presentation didn’t feature any news from Capcom about the next Monster Hunter game. Capcom has been dedicated to Nintendo consoles with the series since the Nintendo 3DS debuted, so it would be strange for them to abandon Nintendo in favor of home consoles like the PS4.I’m sure we’ll get some juicy tid-bits about the next upcoming Monster Hunter game soon, but if you’re still eager to experience Generations on Nintendo 3DS and haven’t done so yet, you can snag a copy on Amazon for just $20 bucks. They’re out of stock right now, but if you order it you’ll get it for the cheaper price and Amazon will ship when new stock is available.I’ve done this a few times with a handful of games including the last Fire Emblem and the wait is never more than a week or so. Not bad if you’re a Monster Hunter fan and you missed out on Generations. It’s got some notable improvements over Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, too.Get Monster Hunter Generations on Amazon READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

The Alliance Alive Looks Lovely in its Debut Trailer

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming FuRyu developed Nintendo 3DS exclusive JRPG The Alliance Alive. The trailer showcases the game’s relaxing music and pretty character design but we also get a good look at game-play. There’s a world with towns, NPCs and various places to explore. Combat appears to be turn-based and at a glance seems similar to that in The Legend of Legacy, the last game from this development team. There are also clips from scenes and some text dialogue, although it is in Japanese. The Alliance Alive launches in Japan in spring of 2017. See the trailer below. [embedded content]

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure Review — A Frighteningly Good Time

Sometimes wonderful things come in small packages. A great example of this is Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure. Launching as an eShop exclusive at a budget price point and without much fanfare, one could be forgiven for assuming the Nintendo 3DS port of Nihon Falcom’s 2004 PC title was just tepid shovelware. Yet to make such an assumption would be a terrible disservice to Gurumin, which unfolds to reveal a surprisingly compelling and charming game-play formula. Though it has appeared before on the PC and the PSP, Gurumin feels truly at home on a Nintendo platform, thanks in equal parts to its cartoony charms and the clear influence of some classic Nintendo IP on its game design. Our heroine is Parin, a spunky young red headed girl who is sent to stay with her grandfather while her excavator/adventurer parents travel the world in search of excitement. Parin will have no shortage of her own excitement though, and it becomes clear quite quickly as she is introduced to friendly monsters. She hasn’t time for many pleasantries with her no friends though, because their home, Monster Village, is in ruins following an assault from the nefarious Phantom Prince and his cohorts. Parin’s adventure is…

Get Psyched for Pokémon Sun & Moon’s Demo with New Trailer

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS exclusive RPGS Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. The trailer promotes the game’s demo, which is available today for free download. The demo will let players explore select parts of the region, capture various Pokemon and interact with some of the new features, such as riding Pokemon and unleashing Pikachu’s Gigabolt Havoc special attack, which looks cool but probably still isn’t enough to make Pikachu viable in the series’ fierce competitive scene. Check out the trailer below; you may get more than you bargained for in this demo. [embedded content]
