TGS Unveils Gameplay Footage for Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance

Written on September 19, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

A four-minute gameplay video clip for the upcoming 3DS title, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, has been unleashed during the TGS 2011 event.

Famitsu just revealed a four-minute video clip from this year’s Tokyo Game Show event, showing off the upcoming game developed and published by Square Enix — the Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. The said footage heavily focused on highlighting the title’s gameplay.

The video, which can be viewed after the break, shows Sora while he awakes in Traverse Town in some new clothing. As he was wondering how he got from the famous city and was shouting for his missing friend, Riku, Sora was caught into a battle or two against the Darkness. The combat used the A button to attack, B to jump, X for magic, and Y to unleash special attacks — such as Sora doing a mid-air combo, bouncing of walls to hit enemies, and even swinging around a light post.

Written on September 13, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

During its pre-Tokyo Game Show presser this afternoon, Nintendo unveiled the arrival of its newest bizarre circle pad attachment for 3DS.

Aside from its upcoming Misty Pink 3DS, Nintendo also unveiled another interesting announcement during its pre-Tokyo Game Show conference this afternoon in Japan. The Big N’s very own Satoru Iwata discloses their plans of releasing the new 3DS’ bizarre circle pad attachment (also known as 3DS slide pad expansion), which is expected to hit the store shelves of Japan starting December 10 with a price tag of ¥1500 or $19.50.

Nintendo as well revealed some of the titles that will be added on the said attachment, including the Monster Hunter Tri G — which will also be available on Dec. 10. Aside from Monster Hunter, the Biohazard Revelations (Resident Evil: Revelations) will also be present, along with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble, Dynasty Warriors VS, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Unfortunately, the 3DS slide pad expansion will require one AAA battery for use, which means that the pad won’t be carrying the battery power of the 3DS device it’s attached to.

Nintendo 3DS Gets Second Highest Sales Record

Written on September 06, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Japanese 3DS sales strike 384,000 units last month; doubles the device's July total.

The 3DS price drop last month has indeed worked out favorably for the Nintendo company. As revealed by Enterbrain, there are over 384,000 handheld units that were sold in Japan last August — which is 2.6 times the amount of devices being sold in July.

This is considered to be the second best-performing month for the Nintendo 3DS. Last March, when the handheld was first launched, the company was able to market more than 430,000 units.

In August 11, the 3DS faced a price cut-off of ¥10,000 to ¥15,000. The price drop was reported several weeks earlier, which results to an expected sales decrease. After the drop, the units were then reported to have the second highest sales record since its launching (February 26 launch not included).

Stay tuned to AllWeLike for news regarding 3DS sales in North America.
