Bit Boy!! Arcade is colorful and strange

Bit Boy!! Arcade has a second trailer, though I'm quite sure I never saw the first one. But I did investigate, and for a game with WiiWare origins shrunken down to the 3DS, it looks quite good. I'm not sure how I missed it, given its prope...   read

Here's a trailer to remind you Soul Sacrifice Delta launched today
