A mysterious tweet sets the internet aflame with anticipation.
Nintendo fans are no strangers to having localized versions of enticing Japanese fare dangled in front of them, with no real word of when, or even if the title will make its way over seas. The now infamous “Operation Rainfall” trio took quite some time and a heavy fan based push before even an announcement of localization was made - never mind an actual release date.
It's okay to smile. We won't judge you here.
Nintendo made many an inner child quite happy this morning by announcing that the main series’ first official foray into 3D will arrive this October in the form of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.
Tons of original releases, Virtual Console titles, and demos are on the way.
Nintendo is known for many things, and chief among them would be their amazingly popular library of games. While that has kept the company firmly in the hearts and minds of millions of gamers, most hardcore fans would admit that the Big N hasn’t quite leveraged the digital space as well as they could. Nintendo is hoping to turn that sentiment around when it comes to the 3DS eShop. The eShop has seen some impressive original releases and some classics on the Virtual Console, but Nintendo is coming strong with a lineup of titles and content from October through the end of the year.
Atlus will localize their throwback dungeon crawler in early 2013
The title says it all - Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan will be localized for North America and is scheduled to release early next year.

Sora ran out of magic spells and keys to unlock new video games.
The developer who designed the critically acclaimed Kid Icarus: Uprising has shut its doors recently. Unfortunately, the company has released a statement on their website noting that they closed on June 30, 2012. The company was spawned as a joint venture between Sakurai and Nintendo and funded almost entirely by the Big N.
That's right, it's going to get even bigger.
When Nintendo announced their newer and bigger model of the 3DS, gamers immediately took notice that the system lacked a second circle pad, which was added to the current model via the Circle Pad Pro attachment. Despite the XL lacking a built in second Circle Pad, Nintendo hasn't abandoned support of dual analog control.
