Capcom US has officially unveiled the special Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Collectors Edition which you’ll be able to get your hands on when the game launches exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS early next year. The company says that the designs have yet to be finalised.
As we are nearing the Japanese release for Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS, one Japanese gamer has produced a video showcasing the numerous billboards he has spotted advertising the game. The video is a compilation of adverts from Japanese train stations and shopping malls. Super Smash Bros 3DS comes out September 13th in Japan.

A Nintendo representative has confirmed to US video game site GameSpot that the newly announced new Nintendo 3DS will indeed be region locked like its predecessors. This goes for the standard new Nintendo 3DS as well as the new Nintendo 3DS XL. This basically means that you’ll be unable to play games from other territories on your new console.

Dragon Quest mobile producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto has told online gaming publication Siliconera that the company would like to bring the remastered version of Dragon Quest VII for the Nintendo 3DS to the west, but doesn’t think sales of the game will be high enough.
“In terms of DQVII, it has a lot of text to go through and translate,” Fujimoto said, “and we’ve received so many requests and so much positive feedback about the game, but unfortunately, we have to consider the cost and the manpower needed to handle the sheer load of text. In terms of scenario and script, the game is probably one of the largest in the DQ franchise. If a lot of people can buy it and support it… well, we can’t promise anything.”
“From Dragon Quest VIII and beyond, we’ve revamped the translation,” Fujimoto explained. “For example, we’ve added regional twangs like those from Baltic regions sounding Russian and things like that. We’ve also updated the spells and monster names, so any classic titles we revisit, we want to say consistent. That being said, when we go back and update the classic titles, we make these changes. That’s another step in the process.”
“Going back to people who want DQVII to come out… we’ve gotten a lot of requests, we really want to do it, but right now, we need to hammer out what kind of resources we’d need to do it. We say this a lot, but, we can’t seem to get to the point where it’s justifiable.”
