Yesterday, it was reported that Namco Bandai Europe would release a collector's edition of Ni no Kuni called Wizard’s Edition. Now, it seems that the US branch will be doing the same thing next year in January. The most intriguing item in this box would have to be The Wizard’s Companion, a tome that contains all the magic spells Oliver uses during his adventure. It also features some amazing hand-drawn pictures of the many beasts that Oliver will have to fight and hopefully defeat.
A price for the US has also been set: adventurers will have to pay 100 gold or $100 for this impressive package.

Namco Bandai Games Europe have announced that they will be releasing a collector's edition of Ni no Kuni called Wizard’s Edition. This limited-run package will contain a 300+ page hardback physical copy of The Wizard’s Companion, a spellbook and bestiary that Oliver uses throughout his journey in the game, a plush doll of Drippy, Oliver’s guide through his adventures, as well as exclusive golden mite and golden drongo DLC familiars. Flutterby and griffy, two exclusive familiars made especially for western release, will be made available to all the wizards and witches willing to pre-order Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch at select retailers. That, my friend, is pretty amazing.
Unfortunately, no price point has been given at this time. Still, the tome alone is worth whatever price Namco Bandai Games Europe decides upon.
The collector's edition, alongside the standard version of the game, will be revealed only to the dedicated mages on January 25th 2013.

The makers of Students of Round have announced a new Japanese dungeon crawler for the Xbox 360 called Ken no Machi no Ihoujin: L’etranger de La Ville de L’epee. Not much is known expect that it will be released sometime next year and will most likely feature some impressive 2D artwork.
I am also assuming that a European release is being considered given the French subtitle. We can only hope.

Frankly, I think it looks cheaply made. Also, it is quite a shame that it does not include a second analog pad. Even more when you consider that Nintendo have just confirmed a new Circle Pad Pro for the system. The concept of portability has just been flung out the window.
I guess Nintendo simply did not want to alienate they current install user base.

Let us face it: with the Wii, Nintendo wanted to appeal to the casual fans out there while trying to distance themselves from their competition. The GameCube, while a very powerful system in its own right, was never able to overtake the Xbox and PS2. Nintendo wanted a clean break with the Wii and they achieved just that. Unfortunately, gamers who wanted more traditional games were out of luck. The big N is looking to change all of that with the Wii U by employing 3rd party support. But do not just take my word for it. Have a look at this:

I am not a fan of puzzle games. I have always seen them as tedious activities that take way too much time to complete and offer little to no satisfaction. However, I do not mind solving them if they are part of an adventure game. I consider them to be mere obstacles that stand between me and the next story segment.
OMG!... Puzzles - Tetris Bricks is not an adventure game. It is a pure puzzle game that I could not stop playing. My fascination with the game completely surprised me as I do not normally engage in such occupations.
The premise is quite simple: form a 5x5 square using nothing but predetermined tetris blocks. It is straightforward and it is addicting. The latest version of the game offers 20 simple puzzles to get you started and 200 advanced puzzles to really test that gray matter of yours.
I wholeheartedly recommend this game and I do not even like puzzle games... or maybe I do. Apparently, they just have to be utterly perfect and OMG!... Puzzles - Tetris Bricks just happens to be that perfect game.
Download it right now from the playstore. You will thank me later. Oh, did I mention it was free?

King James Version (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

A couple of weeks ago, Nikkey, one of Japan's largest media corporations, reported that Nintendo was working on a updated version for the current 3DS system. Nintendo was quick to deny such claims and told Nikkey to retract their article.
Just to prove that hypocrisy is universal, during yesterday's own press conference, Nintendo unveiled the 3DS XL for Japan and 3DS XL for US and Europe.
The biggest feature of this handheld is the size itself. Just like with their previous system, Nintendo has seen fit to design a larger than life handheld made specifically for the elderly and those with ophthalmologic problems. Also, battery life, a much-criticised issue of the original model, has been improved.
When it is closed, the unit has a length of 134mm with a width of 74mm and a height of 21mm. This substantial package weighs 336g making it it heavier than the DSi LL XL with its 314g.
Unfortunately, the package will be missing a few important components. In one of the most dumbfounding decisions ever, Nintendo has chosen to offer the system without an AC adaptor in its homeland and in Europe
The price has been set at ¥18900 for Japan and $199 for the USA. In yet another staggering decision, UK retailers will be able to set their own prices.
Expect the system to be released next month on the 28th in both Japan and Europe in three colour variants: red and black, blue and black and silver and black version.
The US release date has been set for August 19th. Customers will not be able to buy the silver and black version, but they will receive an AC adaptor nonetheless.
