YouTube channel Family Gamer has gone hands on with Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars “Twilight of the Republic” Playset and it sure looks like fun. The combat has been developed by Ninja Theory who you may know from the Devil May Cry reboot and Heavenly Sword on the PlayStation 3. Anyway, it should prove to be a competent experience with the talented development team on board.
Disney Infinity 3.0 introduces a number of Star Wars playsets and characters for fans to experience. The first of these, Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic, drops players into the middle of a war on Geonosis as the Jedi attempt to uncover who activated a large droid factory hidden on the planet. The playset has a heavy focus on combat and exploration, making full use of the enhanced fighting techniques added to Disney Infinity 3.0.
As players explore the environment of Geonosis, they’ll come up against a wide range of droid enemies to push, pull and slice with their lightsabers. Each Jedi comes with their own unique force power and fighting style. Anakin for example, fights with a very aggressive style allowing for powerful combos, which is complemented by his force push power. While Ahsoka is more competent against multiple enemies, using spin attacks and dual lightsabers to make light work of droid enemies.
Each character has their own dedicated upgrade tree which is split into four branches, each dedicated to a specific area of the character’s skills. Level 20, but for the Jedi Masters out there, an extreme difficulty level can be enabled to really amp up the challenge. Combat introduces dash, spin and jump attacks, with lightsabers able to deflect laser blasts and also being capable of literally slicing droids into pieces. As each Wave of enemies is dispatched, there’s even a slo-mo finish to bring the battle to a stylish close.
With the release of Splatoon just around the corner now is the perfect time for Nintendo Japan to upload a new video showcasing a number of new paint-based weapons that will be at your disposal when the game launches on May 29th.

Thanks, Nintendo Impact Gaming
Investigative video blogger Tamaki from Unseen64 has been in contact with veteran developers from the critically acclaimed Retro Studios to find out why Nintendo decided to remove Super Metroid from the Metroid Prime Beta. The full game of the Super Nintendo classic Super Metroid was supposed to be added to the sci-fi shooter as an unlockable bonus. It was apparently removed as the developer used a third-party emulator to put Super Metroid into Metroid Prime. This is something Nintendo wasn’t happy about, so they ultimately had it removed.
If you are living in Europe then you are in luck as the gorgeous Yoshi’s Woolly World is coming out next month.

If you’re a fan of the Splatoon song that Nintendo of America introduced in one of their trailers for the game, then you will be pleased to know that the company has released an extended version for you to get up and sing along to. The cheesy song is accompanied by plenty of fast paced multiplayer gameplay, so it’s well worth a watch.
The ever reliable NintenDaan has gotten his hands on a copy of Stella Glow for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is an impressive Japanese RPG and is the prologue of Imageepoch’s final game. Stella Glow is out now in Japan, but we’ve yet to find out when we can download the game over here in the west. Be sure to check out the video as I’ve been assured that it is a game that is well worth playing.
