Most expensive game in the eShop so far, not counting DSiWare? Prices have been very aggressive for the latest 3DSWare stuff (everything at 5-6€) so this better be packed with content to justify it.

Judging from the trailer this isn't just a tower defense game but an action adventure with tower defense segments.

It's over.

Definitely not coming to Europe:

Fatal Frame
Monster Hunter
So, those of you pissed at Fatal Frame Zero 2's exclusion from the NoE feed...

Nintendo of Europe @NintendoEurope
Two games from Project Zero team coming to Europe Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir on #3DS & Project Zero 2: Wii Edition

:D
One down, glad it happened this soon, won't have to hear all the unfounded "it's never coming here" preaching for long in this case.

C'mon if they're releasing Fatal Frame, Monster Hunter surely can't be too far behind.

But remember, that's Capcom's choice, not Nintendo's. Unlike the other games.

So then why was it removed from the video?!

Now that I think about it, it might have something to do with age restrictions. I have just noticed MH3 and FF2 are the only games susceptible of being rated 16+ or higher. The rest are a 12+ at most for KH3D and maybe Culdcept or EO4.

So what does this mean for the unconfirmed games that were in the video?
As far as Zero/Fatal Frame goes, the whole European presentation was rated 'PEGI 12' at the very beginning. It probably exceeded that rating.

Edit: Beaten. Didn't know Monster Hunter was rated higher than that, though I'm not familiar with the PEGI ratings.

I didn't think of that.

Why did we, europeans got this message? Why not Japan?

Could it mean that Reggie is going to drop the bomb?

Hype continues.

NOA stream seems to be rated E10+ as well so don't expect seeing stuff like Pandora, Last Story, MH3 or FF2 as well.

What? Where did that come from? Can I get it too?!

Send me the Zelda one, and I'll send you the Game Center CX one.
PM.

edit: no more PMs please ;//
Ask for the stationeries you're missing in the swapnote thread, hundreds should have them by now.

Some IGN editor was chasing up the Operation Rainfall dudes for a story yesterday... guess this was the scoop.

My understanding was that has to do with Op Rainfall making Wikis on IGN's site for Xenoblade/The Last Story/Pandora's Tower.

I've sent the Zelda stationery on to my friends list in Swapnote...

I really hope he *is* teasing <New!> Legend of Zelda... a new top down Zelda (maybe with multiplayer or online like NSMB Wii?) would be amazing. Hell, any new top-down Zelda would be amazing.

Hey! Listen!

Rhod just posted/translated this over in the seaman thread:


http://twitter.com/Nintendo/status/172300946716639232

If I'm reading it right, he says:

"Some incorrect information was published on Monday, as is happening quite often a source is mixing information with no context, and supposition/assumptions. It's surprising that these gossip-magazine style tactics are being used".

He is most likely talking about the Nikkei artice, but no idea if it is about Seaman or the "Nintendo is looking to revitalize forgotten third party franchises" thing.....

What if it's 2D Zelda but a sidescroller???

Makes sense that it would be the revitalizing old franchises thing. Easy to try to extrapolate that from the Seaman news, and it's a statement about Nintendo's strategy as a whole, therefore something that might need refutation.
