Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (ATLUS//3DS/eShop/Apr 16, 2013)

The missing entry in the classic Shin Megami Tensei RPG series finally arrives in North America!

Never before released in North America, this long-awaited entry in the acclaimed Devil Summoner series takes players into a future in which technology and otherworldly forces meet in a macabre fusion of cyberpunk futurism and gothic horror. A first-person sci-fi RPG epic, Soul Hackers tells of a city held up as a beacon of humanity's triumph of technology, but with an infernal secret. In this would-be utopia, a group of hackers takes on a centuries-old mystic society, and a battle for control over humanity's fate is about to begin...

In a society originated from a bizarre marriage of technology and demonology, an unleashed evil—borne of an inconvenient truth—threatens to bring an end not just to the deceptive harmony, but to mankind itself.

Improved graphics marry with extensive voice acting, a host of technical enhancements, and 3D dungeon exploration to make Soul Hackers a natural fit to the Nintendo 3DS.

The portable COMP units allow players to tap into the tech-heavy world and can be upgraded to offer new features and abilities. In tandem with tech, demons can be recruited (through negotiation), leveled and even fused, giving the player new summoning potential in battle.

Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger (Nintendo/3DS/eShop)

Last year, we launched Dillon’s Rolling Western for the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Dillon is headed back to the eShop in a sequel called Dillon’s Rolling Western: The Last Ranger. This is an action tower-defense game which combines the strategy elements of Dillon defeating enemies with weapon emplacements that players can deploy around the map, and the action elements of Dillon directly attacking opponents with flashy action moves like rolling attacks and claw slashes. New to “The Last Ranger,” Dillon can recruit new allies by battling and defeating them throughout the game. There’s the strong but greedy lizard gunman Gallo, the foolish but powerful bear Boone and the mysterious squid assassin from the East Sea, Nomad.

In addition to keeping villages safe from harm from the waves of approaching enemies, Dillon must now also protect a train that moves throughout each of the game’s main stages. Players now have more strategic options to consider, but can share tips on how to clear stages with others via StreetPass.
