Developer Circle Entertainment released a bunch of screenshots for its upcoming title World Conqueror 3D. As the company focuses on 3DS releases, you can expect this to board the Nintendo eShop soon as well. A release date for North America is set on November 14, 2013.
Essentially, World Conqueror 3D is an adaptation of the popular Risk board game. Players occupy certain territories on a world map and put an army there to defend it. Depending on the amount of forces present on any such terrain, it’s possible to enemies in neighboring places. These assaults can be done with a selected amount of units and they can be performed in different types. For instance, it’s possible to strike from the air to ground units or have ships attack land. Fights are determined with a set of dice rolls, depicted next to each unit.
Combat will stretch all over the globe in several detailed environments. Game modes will include Conquest as well as Campaigns. It’s possible to select one of several nations, like the USSR, Japan or UK.
Here are those screenshots we talked about.
Despite not mustering up a ton of attention for its game, developer Corecell Technology has still found motivation to come up with a release date for Aeternoblade. People can expect the side-scrolling 3DS exclusive to land somewhere in December, this year. A short gameplay clip shows off some of its features.
Aside from jumping side to side and pummeling a ton of monsters, you’ll also be able to rewind time to prevent mistakes. Characters can also use skills to overcome certain sections, which come with a set of customization options.
In July, the company only managed to raise a total of a thousand dollars on its $30K Indiegogo funding goal.
Nintendo announced that its sale figures for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are through the roof already, with over 4 million units sold in the first weekend. Sales units were counted for the worldwide release, across all regions, for October 12 and October 13. While Nintendo stipulates that it has no real reference point, as no global launch was simultaneously done before, it does indicate that combining prior efforts together make this iteration have a 70% increase towards the Black/White 2 release. Additionally, sales figures for Europe are mostly counted for Saturday only, since most stores close on Sunday.
In the past, Diamond/Pearl and Ruby/Sapphire have held the most sold units, with 17.6 million and 16.2 million units sold respectively. Could this strong start mean a new champion?

Nintendo has announced a rather surprising addition to their consoles with the 2DS. This is a 3DS handheld, but in compact format for a lower price. Its most surprising trait is that it doesn’t come with hinges and instead is just one large slate with directional controls fixed in the middle, while the shoulder buttons will now be two giant strips on the top. The other characteristic is that the device does away with 3D view, which sort of defeats the point of the technology, but it’s a small concession for awesome games like Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Mario & Luigi coming out on the platform.
Still, that’s not the only thing that the device will let go, in order to be the most affordable of its now three generations. A rather strange choice is to revert the screens back to the size of the original model, while the 3DS XL showed off visual superiority with its panels. Certainly as it’s going for a tablet feel, having a smaller work room seems counterproductive. More so, the 2DS is the only one to only have 1 audio channel and produce monaural sound, though stereo is accessible through headphones. Finally, there is no power saving mode. In return, Nintendo will include a power adapter with a purchase, which wasn’t the case with the 3DS XL, for reasons. So, it’s a little give and take. Full specifications for the handheld in comparison are available below.
