Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Hits iOS As A Free Download

IPHONE005r

The 3DS rhythm game,
Final Fantasy Theatrhythm, has been released for iOS as a free download. That’s right, free!

The game plays very much the same as the 3DS version, although the 3DS’ stylus is a better fit. The iOS version features only two songs however and the rest can be purchased as in-game downloads. The game does feature something new however in the form of a composition mode. In this mode you are able to set the notes/inputs for a track, effectively allowing you to create countless versions of the same song.

vgi_091212_1

Our favourite blue bomber has had a rough couple of years. With the cancellation of two games,
Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3, right before its 25th anniversary year. Capcom has announced a new crossover game starring Mega Man and a slew of Street Fighter favourites in a mashup style game based on the classic Mega Man series titled Street Fighter X Mega Man.

Coming December 17 as a free PC download (thats right, free!) the game will feature all new power ups for Mega Man and will put a number of Street Fighter characters in the place of the infamous Robot Masters.

Mega Man celebrates his 25th anniversary starting December 17, the day the crossover game will be available to the public, and Capcom has announced that on the same day you will definitely hear more about their plans to celebrate one of their most well-loved characters.

Nintendo Land - Review


Rev.NintendoLand


Much like what Wii Sports did for the Wii back in 2006 when the console released, Nintendo Land helps showcase the innovative features of Nintendo’s latest home console. Does this Nintendo-themed minigame collection offer enough to satisfy early adopters, or does it lack the depth to make it a worthy purchase?

Check out the Review to
Nintendo Land HERE!

[UPDATE] Nintendo Takes The Apple Approach. Wii Mini Coming Next Month

vgi_271112_1

[UPDATE]

Turns out the latest model Wii Mini model is exclusive to Canada at this stage.

[27.11.2012]


Thanks to an image from the homepage of the Canadian Best Buy Website, those rumours about a Wii Mini are pretty much confirmed. The image is small though, so we will have to wait for Nintendo to officially announce it before we can get a more in-depth look.

With a release date of December 7th (North America) the Wii Mini will be out just in time for Christmas.

Nintendo is nearing 100 million Wii units sold since its release, and this new model will easily ensure it reaches that goal before the year is out.

Stay tuned for more info regarding the Wii Mini.
