The Battle Cats 3DS is coming to the West after all

Shortly after learning about The Battle Cats through a Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation last year, I decided that rather than wait for the 3DS version to possibly get localized, I'd be better off playing the existing mobile game to sat...

The original Corpse Party is coming to 3DS and Steam
