In a preview of this week’s Famitsu magazine, there has been details surrounding a release of a new Medabots title named Medabots 9 for the Nintendo 3DS. There’s very few details at the moment, other than the new title will be released in two versions, Medabots 9 Kabuto and Medabots 9 Kuwagata. There’s also information on the titles having the added feature of 3-on-3 battles. Here’s a snippet of the Famitsu preview, posted by Gematsu:
This news has come very closely after the release of the Game Boy Advance Medabots titles, Medabots: Metabee and Medabots: Rokusho on the Wii U virtual console. What do you think of Medabots 9 coming to the 3DS?

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will be available for the 3DS on October 22nd in Japan, October 23rd in North America and Europe, and October 24th in Australia. This title will also have a region lock, which means you will only be able to team up with other people in the same region as you.

With the end of the year fast approaching, the consumer website Nielsen has compiled a list of the most anticipated games for this Holiday season across multiple platforms. The list is created by surveying more than 4,800 gamers aged 7 to 54 between August 24th, 2015 and September 19th, 2015. The titles that are included are games that are due for release between October 1st, 2015 and December 31st, 2015.
Here’s the list below:
For Nintendo, the top two listed games are Yoshi’s Woolly World for the Wii U at 91 percent, and Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden for the 3DS at 88 percent. The percentage, Nielsen explains, “represents the overall anticipation level among gamers on each platform, based on a combination of several key measures (including awareness, purchase interest, consumer rating and others). The percent value shown reflects how strong the overall anticipation level is for the title, relative to the pre-release anticipation levels of all previous titles that released on the platform(s)”.
Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, and The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, also all rank highly in the list of anticipated games for the Holiday season. There is however, a notable lack of Xenoblade Chronicles X, which is due for release on the Wii U on December 4th for North America, Europe and Australia.
What do you think of the the Game Rank list? Which titles would you have hoped to see at the top spot?

We previously posted about the Animal Crossing amiibo card collector’s book appearing on Amazon UK. Unfortunately, there was no listing of this product on the Amazon US website, and no release date for when it might happen. However, according to the Amiibo Alerts Twitter account, a similar product is being given to people for free at certain gaming events in North America such as the GameStop event that took place over the weekend. It’s being handed out as an official promotional item for the recent release of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.
Keep your eyes peeled at gaming events in North America for these being handed out, as unfortunately we don’t have further details on which particular events these will pop up at next. You can keep up to date on upcoming events on Nintendo’s website. Let us know if you manage to get your hands one!
