Nintendo's eShop schedule includes Pushmo sequel and more

Nintendo has revealed its 3DS eShop schedule for the rest of this year, which includes full retail titles, download-only original games, more Virtual Console releases, and some demos.

Nicalis is bringing NightSky over to 3DS on October 25, followed by Crashmo, a sequel to fan-favorite puzzler Pushmo, that hits on November 22 and Fluidity: Spin Cycle, due out on December 27.

At some point during the holiday season, three games from Level-5 and prolific Japanese developers will be available. Those are Suda 51's Liberation Maiden, Yoot Saito's Aero Porter, and Yasumi Matsuno's Crimson Shroud. There's also Tokyo Crash Mobs, an action-puzzle title releasing in early 2013.

Deep breath! Additionally, the eShop will be getting Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, and Mario Kart 7 on October 18. These games are $39.99 each, which, frankly isn't that expensive considering how well Nintendo software retains its value.

Virtual Console hasn't been getting the love I would like it to, but these upcoming titles don't hurt:

  • Mario Golf (launches Oct. 11)
  • Castlevania: The Adventure (launches Oct. 25)
  • Ninja Gaiden (launches Nov. 8)
  • Zelda II - The Adventure of Link (launches Nov. 22)
  • Wario Land II (launches Dec. 20)
  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (launches Dec. 27)

As for the aforementioned game demos, those are going to be: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!!, Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, LEGO The Lord of the Rings, Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Specific dates were not disclosed, although we do know that a second demo for Style Savvy: Trendsetters is coming out on November 1.

It's terrific to see Nintendo put a real, noticeable effort into supporting the eShop -- and talking about said support so that it doesn't go unnoticed. Who would have predicted that Pusho would get a follow-up? Not me! Here's some footage of the new game courtesy of GoNintendo:

Gotta go with Vaporeon as it is absolutely adorable and makes for a great Water-Type. I'd upload a photo, but my internet is being screwy.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.

So I decided to tinker around with some assets in Source Filmmaker and make a still image. Kind of a Jurassic Park-inspired thing with dino assets from that Ark game. Care to offer some comments, critique, etc.?

Everyone's posting about waifus and I'm just here posting a blog about why I enjoy a recent game instead. This is why I'll never be promoted.

There is a Spelunker themed dungeon in Megadimension Neptunia called Neplunker. It even comes complete with Spelunker music and dying from falling off waist high ledges! 10/10 would game over again.

You know among all the bosses I've fought I didn't expect Vagina Tooth Dragon to go down like a bitch.

News Tip off for anyone who wants it. Seems Binding of Issac has been banned from the Apple IOS app store.

Waifu Wars piece is up. But also, I got the Trails of Cold Steel limited edition in the mail the other day and just now looked at the pin you get with it. Wow, that horse is one smug looking son of a bitch. Kind of makes me want to punch him...
