New Arms Fighter Incoming

Last week, Nintendo of Japan’s Twitter page announced that the next ARMS update will include a brand new fighter, along with brand new ARMS. The same account just gave us a sneak peek to what we can expect.

Though the snippet of footage is blurry, we can make out that the new fighter could be likely to be female (thought we wouldn’t want to assume now, would we) and that one of their ARMS seems to twirl around in fashion. Additionally, from the rough translation, it seems their ARMS are actually distinctly part of the new fighter’s dress. This fighter will surely make the others look like they hit a fashion faux pas!

Haven’t picked up ARMS yet? Try reading our review to see what we thought!

New Mario Maker Costume Turns ‘Ewe’ Into Shaun the Sheep

With all the madness of switching hosts and transferring the brand new forums over, we can finally get back into working action, and what better to start us off by seeing this new crossover in one of our favourite games?

Last week, Nintendo’s most recent collaboration with Aardman, the creative lot behind ‘Wallace and Gromit’, and ‘Shaun the Sheep’, came into fruition. Grab the Mystery Mushroom in the new ‘Shaun’s Mossy Mole Mischief’ Event Course, and you’ll be clad in a fleecy wool just like Shaun the Sheep.

What’s this? You don’t know ‘what’ Shaun the Sheep is? Shaun the Sheep is a BAFTA winning children’s television programme which has also spawned a feature length movie. The show follows the life of Shaun, a mischievous sheep from Mossy Bottom Farm, where every day is full of excitement and chaos, all behind the back of Mossy Bottom’s farmer!

Check out the press release after the break!

REVIEW – Bravely Second: End Layer

So, you’ve returned. Do you still remember? I welcome you back to Luxendarc, two years following the events of the Great Chasm, when the crystals fell into a deep darkness. The world has been at peace and the war between the Crystal Orthodoxy and the Duchy of Eternia has since been ceased. Though that was then. And now, a new tale must be told…

Bravely Second: End Layer follows the long journey of Yew Geneolgia, a young knight from Gathelatio, where he will loose close friends but create new faithful companions, on his quest to save her holiness, Agnès Oblige, and discover the deep, dark secret of the Kaiser Oblivion.

Will Bravely Second: End Layer take home the gravy, or is it as weak as an Appling? Find out in our review after the break!
