One of the latest video games to use the gorgeous UbiArt Framework is Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets for the Nintendo 3DS. NintenDaan has acquired a copy of the recently released game and has shown off the promising first 37 minutes. Expect some witty storytelling and some sumptuous visuals which showcase just how impressive the UbiArt Framework engine actually is.
French website, Nintendo Actu, has managed to crack the secret message in Hytopia’s Hub in the newly-released Nintendo 3DS title, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. After obtaining enough “Friendly Tokens” (obtained through local multiplayer), Nintendo Actu snatched up the Tri Suit which allowed them to read the decoded message: “IT’S A SECRET TO EVERYBODY.” This line is an Easter Egg, reminiscent of the first The Legend of Zelda which contained the same message. Check out the GameXplain video below showcasing the details:
How many horror games can you think of on Nintendo 3DS? None (unless you get spooked by Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon). Renegade Kid (Mutant Mudds, Moon, Xeodrifter) is hoping to change that by bringing their previous Nintendo DS title, Dementium: The Ward, to the 3DS eShop. NintendoLife caught up with Renegade Kid’s co-founder, who revealed a few details about the upcoming title:
Yes, I am extremely excited about Dementium Remastered. Feels great to have it wrapped up. Price wise, the game will be $14.99 and will release in North America as soon as it can!
Two of the most impactful changes that affect the gameplay experience are no respawning enemies and manual save spots. In hindsight, this was unintentional difficulty in the original release, and presented unfair difficulty – not something I am a fan of. As such, this makes the new experience a more digestible and balanced experience – but it also makes it easier. This is great news for most players, but the hardcore players out there who want something they can sink their teeth into will be happy to hear that we also added two difficulty settings above “Normal”, in the form of “Hard” and “Demented”.
The art has been completely overhauled. Renegade Kid’s art director, Gregg Hargrove, and our Technical Director, Bob Ives, have implemented a wealth of new tricks to our toolbox, which enable us to utilize such delights as normal maps and detail maps that were not possible on the original Nintendo DS. Much of the geometry in the blood-stained corridors and gnarled enemies has also been redone, with higher polygon counts to present more definition and character to the visual presentation. It is disgustingly beautiful.
Another area of gameplay that we have focused on is how the weapons handle in terms of ammo and reloading. The system in the original game was kinda of strange. We have modernized this aspect for Dementium Remastered. This is something that will feel natural to new players, and improved for fans of the original.
Dementium Remastered runs at 60 frames per second on the regular 3DS with 3D on. It also supports the Circle Pad Pro and second analog nub on the New 3DS. Much like Moon Chronicles, the game offers a wealth of control options, including different button configurations and aim sensitivity adjustments.
Are you going to be picking up the title?

Atlus has announced that those of you in the United States will be able to download a demo for Imageepoch’s upcoming strategy RPG Stella Glow. The demo will be available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop on October 27th. Sadly the company has said that progress from the demo won’t transfer over to the full game. Still, it should give you a good taste of what to expect.
First, you can all rest easy, because Stella Glow is getting a demo! The upcoming strategy RPG from Imageepoch (Luminous Arc series) will have its entire prologue available as a demo! Progress will NOT transfer over, but it will give players a taste of the strategic combat, voice acting, and have them bear witness to Alto’s transformation from humble villager to a Regnant Knight when Hilda comes to destroy his home town.

In celebration of the The Legend of Legacy’s North American release, Atlus has published a new trailer for the game. The title, which is based on the Saga series, is a chibi-style RPG, much in the vein of Bravely Default. The Legend of Legacy is available for Nintendo 3DS in North America and will be coming to Europe early 2016. Check out the trailer below:
Update 2: Looks like Nintendo of America has deleted their original tweet, replacing it with:
Seems like the demo will be available on October 22nd, 2015 instead of right now.

If you live in North America, make sure to swing by the eShop on Nintendo 3DS and download the Yo-Kai Watch demo. Rumors that a demo would release in the West came after the Australia ratings board listed “YO-KAI WATCH DEMO” earlier this week. Nintendo America, just released a tweet stating the demo is live in America:
Yo-Kai Watch is set to release in America on November 6, 2015 and in Europe in 2016.
