Shift DX coming to 3DS

More screens here

Shift DX marks the return of the classic Shift series. The game will feature all of the levels contained in Shift 1 and 2, along with 100 all-new levels designed specially for this release.

Many have tried to emulate the gameplay of Shift since its first release in 2008, but none have managed to capture the frantic, mind-bending nature of the series. Players are tasked with making their way through a series of perplexing rooms, equipped with nothing more than their ability to “shift” the playing field. Is a wall blocking you from progressing? Flip that level upside down and turn that wall into a pit!

Of course, that’s only the beginning of the challenges players will encounter in Shift DX. The road to victory is paved with mysterious items, complex environmental puzzles, and a variety of deadly traps.

Shift DX is coming soon to Nintendo 3DS. Both digital and physical releases are planned.


Over 100 brand-new puzzles
Shift 1 and Shift 2 levels included
New Shift Challenge gameplay mode
Create levels with the Level Editor
Share levels online as QR Codes
"Pop-Art" and "Classic" visual modes

Burlingame, CA. – October 8, 2015 - Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, today releases the next in a series of Game Boy Advance titles on the Wii U Virtual Console. Pocky & Rocky with Becky, an arcade-style action title, launches today in both North America and Europe on the Wii U Virtual Console, nearly thirteen years to the day of its original launch in North America.

"When we originally announced that we would be bringing eight of our GBA titles to Virtual Console, fans began excitingly guessing which ones they might be," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume Inc. "With so many fans asking for a classic like Pocky & Rocky with Becky, we knew we had to make it happen!"

Play as Pocky, Rocky, or Becky in a frenetic, Eastern themed arcade-style classic. Each character has a unique power-up that players will need to master to tackle numerous terrifying bosses. You'll have a mere three lives to make it through challenging levels, so be careful!

Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town will also be arriving in North America in the coming months.

Stella Glow's Knights of Regnant, At Your Service

Stella Glow

When you're just a lowly villager about to be obliterated at the hands of Hilda, Witch of Destruction, and moments before your certain demise you get saved at the last second by the knights of the land, you tend to feel indebted to those knights and do whatever it takes to join their ranks.

Well, that's what Stella Glow's protagonist, Alto does at least! And good for him too, since the Regnant Knights' 9th Regiment are some of the baddest mofos around and fully capable of stopping Hilda and her Harbingers. I mean, look at Archibald. You don't say stuff like this if you can't back it up:

Archibald, Klaus, and Rusty make up your fellow squadmates who will help recruit other Witches and stop Hilda. Oh, and don't forget, they're also people you can form bonds with during Free Time (bromances, even)!
