Following the reveal of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, the original title hits #1 on Amazon's 3DS charts

A story of redemption

Monster Hunter Stories didn't seem to get too much attention when it originally launched for 3DS in 2016/2017, but now its found a second wind thanks to the reveal of a sequel.

Over on Amazon, the original Monster Hunter Stories has climbed to the #1 position on the 3DS charts. The title was previously nowhere to be seen on the top charts, and there's no doubt the reveal of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin spurred on interest for the original.

If you missed out on the first installment, now's a perfect time to grab it. You can grab the 3DS eShop version for 50% off, making it $20.

Farewell, old friend

It's been a long time since Nintendo released a title for the 3DS, but they have been manufacturing more units of the portable for sale around the world. Now that manufacturing run has come to an end.

Nintendo has announced that they're officially ceasing production of the 3DS family of devices. That includes any device in the 3DS family, such as 2DS, New 2DS XL, and so on.

Thanks to Naruki and Andreslop24 for the heads up!

Yacht Club shares a behind-the-scenes look at how they created Shovel Knight: King of Card's Joustus mini-game

Deal with it

Shovel Knight: King of Cards packed in a ton of fun on the base game, and that includes the Joustus mini-game. This card battler was a completely different experience from anything else in Shovel Knight, which means it took a lot of time to prototype. The team worked on numerous iterations of the idea, and even tested things out with a rudimentary physical version. You can see how the entire design process went down in a Yacht Club dev blog here.
