3DNES fan project sees release

We shared a look at the 3DNES project awhile back, which is a fan project that turns NES games into pseudo-3D experiences via voxels. The devs behind the project have now officially launched the first final version of the program, which has had a number of bugs worked out since the reveal. I can't wait for people to start putting some footage out there so we can see what some other games look like!

Miyamoto teases a special element to NX

Coming from an AP interview with Shigeru Miyamoto...

"In terms of NX, there's an idea that we're working on. That's why we can't share anything at this point, and I don't want to comment on the other companies. If it was just a matter of following advancements in technology, things would be coming out a lot quicker."

Well, anyone care to guess what this element is going to be? What twist is the NX going to have?

Modders working to restore Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to its uncensored version

Whether you are for or against censorship in games is a debate for another day. Today, I think we can all agree that Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is quite censored in its NA/EU releases. That has made a few people unhappy enough to actually work on a patch that does away with the localization changes. The team of modders have already released a patch that offers up the following reverts back to the Japanese version.

- Reverted costumes back to Bikinis, also changing the menu icons back and their original names and descriptions.
- Completely redid Chapter 2 and a few other small files to return references to Gravure Modelling, this also uses the original voice files.
- Fixed any map changes relating to pictures in dungeons that were changed.
- Swapped the English files out for Japanese versions for retranslated files.
- Healing points no longer come in envelopes.
- Changed Profiles to reflect the character’s real ages and change back references to Gravure Modeling.
- Reverted any censored prerendered Cutscene files.

Nintendo opens old-school splash page for Shovel Knight (Japan)

Nintendo is having a bit of fun with the launch of Shovel Knight in Japan. If you go to visit the newly-opened official website, you get hit with a splash page that looks very much like the early days of the internet. Remember when every page had a visit counter and seemed like it was hosted on Angelfire? That's the vibe Nintendo is going for! You can check out the page below, and then if you actually click enter, you're taken to a more up-to-date official site for the games.
