Dillon's Rolling Western Preview

A short trailer showcases a new downloadable 3DS title with gameplay elements from multiple genres.

The Rolling Western is an upcoming 3DS Shop title to be published by Nintendo, for which there is extremely limited information. It was not showcased at the Nintendo Press Conference, and there has been no official fact sheet or press release issued for the game. The only preview comes in the form of a few screenshots and a brief trailer.

From what I can tell, The Rolling Western is the combination of an action and tower defense title. The game stars a protagonist (Jiro) who looks like Sandslash dressed as a cowboy and sounds like Link from the Zelda series. This character has one main attack, which is to roll into enemies, damaging them in the process.

In addition to dealing physical damage by rolling into enemies, players seem to be able to utilize towers that will damage the enemies also. Whether or not players will be setting up the towers themselves or they're already there, I honestly can't tell, but players can definitely select towers to upgrade. Like many other tower defense titles, what appears to be a wave number is displayed in the upper right hand corner; this number indicates how many enemy waves are left.

Within the game, Jiro was also seen performing basic, adventure-type actions, such as opening doors, traveling across vast areas, and destroying plants and rock in order to uncover money. Similar to other Nintendo adventure games, the trailer also displays Jiro's life force (in the form of hearts) increasing as the game goes on, so there is clearly some manner in which to increase one's vitality.

Currently, Nintendo has released no further information regarding the title.

Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King Review

“Haunting” is a perfect word for the realms of the Souls games. No matter how you look at any given landscape, you can always scrape away the remaining rays of hope and damn near breathe in the tragedies that aerate from the world around you. From the initial moment you step in to the domain of the Old Iron King, you hear the ghosts of the past crying for help as you walk through the ashen covered landscapes that are filled with dusty remains of those who never made it to see another day. There is no light to be seen, and the despair can be enough to madden to most stoic of heroes.
