● Nintendo surprisingly released Box Boy! One More Box on the eShop this morning for ¥680. I’ve just bought it so will leave a few thoughts in tomorrow’s update. In the mean-time, the trailer is at

● Kemco announced a couple of JRPGs for release next week with Crusade Chronicle on 3DS and Asdivine Hearts on Wii U. Both games are priced at ¥1,080 each. A video for the 3DS game at and the Wii U game at

● The two Wii U Virtual Console titles announced for next week are Polarium Advance and Rockman EXE 4.5 Real Operation with both games priced at ¥702 each.

● Just three new themes this week with Animal Crossing: Snow Play for ¥200, Nemuneko Friends ♪ Happy New Year!! for ¥200 and an Osomatsu-san theme for ¥250. A video for the Animal Crossing theme at

● There’s also a first party New Year’s Theme Sale with ten themes at ¥100 each (half-price) with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2, Super Smash Bros.

Battleminer which was listed by Starsign as 6 January release (and subsequently didn’t actually release today) is now listed as ‘January’ so I’m guessing 27th.
