Today marks the 20th anniversary of Smash!— PushDustIn (@PushDustIn) January 21, 2019
Over the years I've seen a lot of intense, exciting and fun matches.
It's been played across houses, in tournaments and even in workplaces.
While developing Smash is quite difficult at times, it's been rewarding. Thank you for playing. https://t.co/kSaD1jdm3A

Only a few weeks to go until Etrian Odyssey Nexus launches in the West!— Atlus U.S.A., Inc. (@AtlusUSA) January 19, 2019
Pick up the brand new Etrian Odyssey Nexus theme for free on the Nintendo 3DS Theme Shop, and get ready for the biggest Etrian adventure yet when the game launches on February 5!https://t.co/Vmin6v3WDW pic.twitter.com/K87KoKv73N
We don't get too many themes here on the 3DS eShop anymore, which makes it nice when a new one crops up. It's even better when it's free, which is the case for the Etrian Odyssey Nexus theme above! Hop on the 3DS eShop now and grab it while you can!
The official METAL GEAR orchestral concert series will premiere in the US in 2019, starting in New York (March 23) before moving to Los Angeles (April 6). The concert will feature more than 70 musicians on stage, including METAL GEAR singer Donna Burke, and HD footage from the game will be projected on a giant screen in perfect sync with the music. Reviving the most memorable moments of the game, the concert will feature the best music from the METAL GEAR Solid games, with background music (BGM) like the “Main Theme,” “Encounter,” “Father and Son,” not to forget memorable songs such as “The Best is Yet to Come,” “Snake Eater,” and “Heavens Divide,” which will be sung live by Donna Burke.
Beloved by millions of fans, the video game series has sold more than 50 million units worldwide over the 30 years since its release. A particular breakout success since the “Metal Gear Solid” instalment that was released on PlayStation in 1998, the series’ popularity continued to soar up to the release of the fifth main episode “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” on PlayStation IV in 2015, the top-selling METAL GEAR game of all time. Setting the standard for action-adventure stealth video games, it mainly revolves around the now-legendary character of Solid Snake and his nemesis Big Boss, who are both working to infiltrate and take down an evil organization that poses a threat to the world. Known for its extreme attention to detail and complex and elaborate plotlines, and the entire series is considered both a defining point and a milestone in video-game history. See the official METAL GEAR concert premiere in the USA for the first time ever!

SEATTLE - January 18, 2019 - Materia Collective is excited to release MENU: An Homage to Game Title Themes, a special Materia Collective community album paying tribute to menu themes from across many fan-favorite videogames. The album includes over 52 arrangements from games big and small with more than a few surprises. Titles range from the hugely popular Final Fantasy, Overwatch, and Horizon Zero Dawn to indie darlings such as Stardew Valley, Celeste, and Florence, and delightful oddities with Vagrant Story, Blue Dragon, and Ape Escape. Contributors include videogame composers John Robert Matz, Fredrik Häthén, and Chris Porter and illustrious arrangers and performers Sean Schafianski (Remastered Soundtrack series), Eric Buckholz (Hero of Time), and Reven (Sins of Hyrule). MENU: An Homage to Game Title Themes is licensed and available today.
"For many, opening and menu themes, along with their respective title cards, trigger a great sense of nostalgia," comment album producers Monica Wang and Ben Wallace. "All of these themes are composed and designed with a sense of beginning, acting as gateways towards something bigger. Specifically, we want to encapsulate the feeling of when you first played a game, be it playing a videogame for the very first time or picking up any game for the first time."
Some of the more unique offerings include a samba version of the iconic Fire Emblem main theme, a gritty blues spin of the file select theme from Super Mario 64, and a dreamy synthwave arrangement of the Myst main theme.
