Just bought copy number 3 for my son's DS. He wanted the game, after watching me play mine.

Did you try contacting Agatsuma Entertainment? They seem pretty "international" (English website, published NyxQuest in Japan and are self-publishing Code of Princess on the EU eShop) and they are licensed 3DS developers and publishers.

the only thing the game need is publicity, never heard of it before this thread but I was sold on it like 15 seconds into the trailer

Game is awesome and your awesome for sharing this with us. Laughed when I saw NintendoLife run an article on this topic and they cited NeoGaf lol I guess websites do get a lot of their news from GAF.

Huh?

All eshop games are like 20% cheaper or so, except for retail releases which are like 50% more expensive

Just a quick question Beril....

Has NoA updated their policy to the allow pricing decided by developers and developer determined sales as you suggested was already the case in Europe on the 3DS?

Just bought your game. I also bought it on iOS way back, but didn't care much for it because of touch screen controls.

Damn, looking at the charts in the OP I had no idea the Google Play Store was such a big market though I suppose it makes sense with Android being as popular as it is.

Grabbed it for my android tab and my friend's DS. Definitely liking the 3D effects. Gonna give it a play through on my N7 with a dual shock attached. I really wish more devs supported hardware controls a (hello Square Enix)

The Play numbers are also very encouraging.

Hmmm, interesting. Is it as good? Does it work with the 3DS closed? (it's a DSi game, so I don't know what features work on the 3DS)

I've been out of the loop on new releases for the last couple weeks. Didn't know about this game until this thread. Watched the video on the e-shop - looked like a lot of fun. +1 sale for the 3DS. Really loving this title! Great job and thank you!

I think Mighty Switch Force did good considering it got a WiiU version and I recall seing here that WayForward was more than happy about how their games were doing on the eShop (which reminds me I need to make a LTTP thread about that glorious Batman game they did on Wii/DS).

It's way too simplistic, from the music, sound effects, platforming, level design, enemies, animations, the way you die to the weapon powerups. The only thing it's got going for it in my opinion is a decent artstyle. Also does bumping into a duck seriously do damage to me?

glad I'm not the only one. it's a cute tribute to mega man but doesn't hold my attention.

I just checked again, my fault, while it is true that it is the sixth game displayed in the top sellers tab, under the charts section it still holds its 7th place under the recent release spot.
Sorry :(

Yes, that's interessing. Nintendo games are, sometimes, almost 100% more expensive on the Brazillian eShop :( Did you set the price, Beril? If so, thank you for thinking about your third world brothers :D

Amazing price (pretty sure it's the lowest priced game on the Australian eShop - DSiWare included) and a really solid little platformer. I loved my time with Gunman Clive. Glad to see it doing well!

Played this yesterday, and it reminds me of Megaman a lot, which is not a bad thing at all. The placement of the enemies and platforms is so good. It really keeps you on your toes. Played through up to the 2nd world's boss, but it froze sadly, hope you can get that fixed. It's a great game.

Last time I saw, the difference wasn't that big, most games where $1 = R$2... which is a bit cheaper nowdays, but not as cheap as 30%. Cool, maybe I'll get more 3DS digital games now :P

Oh, it's definitely a Western-style love letter to Mega Man, I think you'll love the later stages!
Turn off the 3D at the second boss.

I finished the game today on Medium, enjoyed it a lot, will go back to finish Hard mode and Duck mode.

I actually have two game ideas that might work as cheap eShop titles, this thread and the game have actually inspired me to seek out partners for the projects.

All eShop-only games seem to have a fixed price conversion from US->Brazil. All $1.99 games in the US eShop cost R$2,99 in the Brazil eShop.

It's the retail games where the publisher can set a different price (Nintendo's own being the most expensive).
