Tomodachi Life’s Download Size Is Just Over 3,000 Blocks

Tomodachi Life may take over a good chunk of your activity log and rival those of Animal Crossing: New Leaf or Monster Hunter when it’s released, but it won’t be a large download size. For those planning on purchasing a digital copy of the life simulation game from the Nintendo eShop, you can expect it to take up roughly 3,391 blocks or 424MB on your SD card.

The title’s positively tiny compared to other games, including the tree-shaking, bell-grinding Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which weighed in around 6,000 blocks or the whopping 17,000 blocks for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. You can experience all of the game’s features, including singing in the bath albeit without Iwata, when Tomodachi Life releases for both the eShop and retail on June 6.


Nintendo Pocket Football Club Trailer Seeks Budding Managers For Dream Team

Nintendo UK has uploaded a trailer for the miniature football title due to hit the eShop next week. Nintendo Pocket Football Club reminds us that every budding football manager has to start somewhere before birthing a legendary dream team.

The days of walking out on scruffy pitches to a heated crowd full of verbal vitriol towards your team’s performance may seem a thing of the past on other football games, but it’s oddly charming in the trailer and only enhanced by the music. Nintendo Pocket Football Club will be available on the European Nintendo eShop from April 17, priced at the special launch offer, £10.79.

Mega Man Developer Reveals Azure Striker Gunvolt Coming To North America This Summer

Shovel Knight Has Been Slightly Delayed

Yacht Club Games has confirmed via its Kickstarter page that Shovel Knight has been delayed slightly and will be missing its initial release date of March 31st. The developer says that there’s nothing to worry about as the release has only slipped by a few weeks. Yacht Club says the game has been pushed back to make sure it’s a world-class experience, and that they can release on all platforms simultaneously.

Hello Shovelers and Shovelettes! There are only a couple weeks until Shovel Knight’s release date of March 31. The crew at the Yacht Club is tired; we’ve been working literally every day, and every waking hour, to make the game great. But! We’re just not quite there yet.

So, we hemmed and hawed, and made a Super Important Executive Decision. This update is to let everyone know that Shovel Knight will be missing March 31 by a few weeks to make sure it’s a world class experience, and can release on all platforms simultaneously. This isn’t a major delay, or a long one; it’s simply a stretch of time to get everything polished and aligned. While major development is quickly drawing to a close, there are still some external factors, like submission preparation, which need a little bit more breathing room before the game goes live.

We don’t want to announce another release date until it’s 100% locked in with both Nintendo and Steam, so please sit tight… we’ll announce a new, final release date very soon.  But the game is like… so done! Here’s what we’re working on in our feverish final hours:

  • Dialogue and scripted events are being finalized
  • Finishing touches put on level design for the final levels
  • Overall game balancing
  • Platform specific standards so everything runs smoothly on your system of choice!
  • Testing, testing, testing… on all platforms!
