Gurumin 3D is out on the 3DS eShop today in North America. I've mentioned it in the Falcom thread, but if you like Zelda or just cute action-adventure games, I would encourage you to check it out. It has a very "Dreamcast"-like charm to it (it originally came out in Japan in 2004).

I'd be interested if there's a Japanese version. I don't have an American Nintendo Account to date (although I do have an NA 3DS), nor am I interested to buy anything from Nintendo of America ever again.
nor am I interested to buy anything from Nintendo of America ever again.
Story? Is it their lack care when it comes to translation?
Meanwhile the European eShop will be have Halloween sales on spooky themed games like Zombi U, Fatal Frame 5, etc and VC games like Majora's Mask, Devil World (has to be a first) Castlevania, Ghouls N Ghosts, etc. There's also going to discounts on other games like Gunman Clive (3DS and Wii U versions). Nintendo Life has the full list.
Fatal Frame 2 Wii Edition also gets released this week.
And to round it out the Pokemon Sun & Moon demo will also be released this week.

But the bigger reason here is region locking. On the DS I'd pick the language version depending on the series (NA for Metroid, Japanese for Kirby, etc.), but I don't think it's a wise idea to keep buying multiple units of the same system. My top two favourite series are Fire Emblem and Kirby, both Japanese-styled series, and I also have a tendency to pick Japan-only games, so the choice is obvious. I have both versions of 3DS, but that's an exceptional case (I couldn't buy a Japanese 3DS at the time).

The original Wii game Lost in Shadow is now out on the eShop in North America.
It's like Nintendo is deliberately picking the major hidden gems on the original Wii and putting them on the eShop to give them a second chance. Although the Wii U probably won't increase their exposure much, kudos to Nintendo for taking this approach.
Butterfly: Inchworm Animation II was released in the 3DS in NA last week and should be released in PAL regions shortly. For anyone that liked Flipnote Studio (or didn't get it in time) This looks like a good (and possibly better alternative).
Also it's the final week for the Halloween sale, so get buying if you haven't. I'm probably get Gunman Clive and possibly Gargoyles Quest (and maybe it's sequel). Which of the the Castlevania VC games are worth buying?
Europe will get Butterfly: Inchworm Animation II this week, there is a trailer for it on this page.
NoE is also holding a Zelda sale for My Nintendo members, they can get 30% off the entire Zelda series including Hyrule Warriors DLC. 50% off My Nintendo Zelda Home Menu themes. And will also finally release the My Nintendo Zelda rewards of The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Theme and The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary orchestra videos (that have already been available in the US for a while).

TANK TROOPERS RELEASES FOR THE WEST TODAY! The background music for the following trailer sounds pretty cool. Though it's sad to hear it doesn't have online multiplayer. What's even stranger is that Vitel have develop this game and yet their last game the F2P Steel Diver: Sub Wars had online multiplayer. This feels like a game that would have been better off at the start of the 3DS's lifespan than now. But I will say that the character designs and abilities look cool.

Harvest Moon 64 is coming to the VC for both Europe and NA this week! This game was never released in Europe originally and was said to have had issues preventing it from being released on the Wii's VC service, so hearing that it's getting a release now is very unexpected.
forma.8 from the Nindies@Home 2015 series is finally getting released on Friday for Europe.
Vaccine is 90's inspired survival horror title that looks like Resident Evil, but has its own interesting design choices. This is from the same developer that made the platformer FreezeME.

Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
