This Week: Once planned as a WiiWare release, PC game NightSky from Nicalis (Cave Story) arrives instead on the 3DS eShop in full stereoscopic 3D. Meanwhile, Level-5 and Suda51 team up to deliver an anime-esque shooter in Liberation Maiden. If that’s not enough, Castlevania: The Adventure comes to the Virtual Console, and Mutant Mudds gets 20 new free levels. All this, and what’s coming soon to the Wii U and 3DS eShop.

(Regularly updated as addition information becomes available.)

Critical Kate

Critical Kate was born on the same day as the Famicom. Primarily a console gamer, Kate has been playing videogames regularly since the NES days (excluding a hiatus during most of the "128-bit" era in college). She prefers her games arcade-y, enjoys a good story, and doesn't understand the appeal of recreational frustration. You don't want to encounter her in the Facility with Remote Mines.
