How do you follow up Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, the game many critics (including myself) called the best of the Nintendo 3DS? By releasing the next big game hardcore 3DS players have their eyes on, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.

Sure, it's not the story-driven, wholly original game that Resident Evil fans might be clamoring for; that'll have to wait until 2012, when Resident Evil: Revelations is released for the 3DS. But in the meantime, The Mercenaries 3D looks like it'll scratch itchy trigger fingers of folks looking for a bit of extra action on the side.

Okamiden coming to North America, first hands-on photo
Okamiden coming to North America, first hands-on
by Nick Chester

Fans of things that are good should be pleased to learn that Capcom is bringing Ōkamiden, the Nintendo DS follow-up to the PlayStation 2/Wii title Ōkami, to North America. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the publisher had trademarked the name all over the globe, shortly before announcing it only for Japan at least year’s Tokyo Game Show.

Act shocked, because you don’t want Capcom to feel bad. But it's nice to have confirmation, and after going hands on with a translated trial version of the game at Captivate, I’m convinced the game is headed in a direction that will surely please fans of the original. From the Sumi-e art style to how it feels making sweeping Celestial Brush strokes with the stylus, Ōkamiden truly nails the vibe of its predecessor across the board, while making fitting tweaks unique to Nintendo’s handheld.
