Darren’s Animal Crossing Memory Walk

I first heard about the Animal Crossing franchise from the original Nintendo Official Magazine (NOM) in the UK, which was advertising the GameCube Animal Crossing title. The series didn’t initially interest me, and it wasn’t until a friend of mine showed me his American copy of Animal Crossing: Wild World on his DS Lite, that my attention for the series piqued. There was just something appealing about the idea of a chilled and relaxed game, where you collect fish and bugs and play with friends in person and online. At the time, the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection was still quite new, and I loved the idea of playing with friends across the world.

REVIEW: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX

Imagine waking up one day, only to realise you had been turned into a Pokémon, with no recollection of how it happened! What would you do? This is the dilemma you face in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, a remake of the titles originally released for Nintendo Game Boy Advance and DS to mark their tenth anniversary.

I have always heard wonderful stories about the Mystery Dungeon games, and it was only this year that I had the pleasure of enjoying one for the very first time, Explorers of Sky on the Nintendo DS. I loved every moment of it, and so I was super enthusiastic about taking on the remake of the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon titles in the form of Rescue Team DX.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 DLC Pack 1 Out Now

Though Halloween is long gone, the Last Resort hotel still has some tricks up their dungarees. As part of the Luigi’s Mansion 3 DLC schedule, Nintendo has just dropped the first pack today.

The DLC pack adds three new costumes to allow Luigi to really get into character: Mummigi, The Green Knight, and Groovigi. While scaling the ScareScraper, you may find yourself in matching environments if someone from your party is wearing one of the special costumes, regardless if others have the DLC installed or not. Did we mention each environment also adds a couple brand new uniquely styled ghosts?

The DLC pack also introduces three new ScreamPark games. Take dodgeball to the next level with the Poltergust G-00 in DodgeBrawl, collect coins in a rubber ducky while dodging logs in River Bank, and capture some ghosts with a ‘shocking’ twist in Tricky Ghost hunt. Want a bit of practive in the ScreamPark?

Haven’t purchased the DLC bundle yet? Never fear, there’s also a brand new update that adds a few other thrilling little features. You can now take on the ScreamPark alone without any opponents in practice mode, tackle a 20-floor ScareScraper, experience five new types of rare ghost in ScareScraper, and even listen to some music from the game in the newly added album.

All of the above is available now, and the DLC can be purchased as part of the DLC bundle for £8.99. Pack 2 will launch some time during the Summer.
