Bayonetta

Bayonetta – A woman wakes up in a coffin at the bottom of a lake.

With no memory of who or what she is, she's drawn to the remote city of Vigrid, almost as if she were being guided...

The witch Bayonetta uses powerful magic to battle minions from the heavens. Her past, and her reason for fighting Angels, is shrouded in mystery.

Wielding a set of four handguns named Scarborough Fair, Bayonetta is an expert at the Bullet Arts combat technique, which combines gunfire and melee attacks. She also possesses the ability to use her hair to summon Infernal Demons that devour her enemies.

LEARN TO DRAW YOUR FAVORITE POKÉMON IN POKÉMON ART ACADEMY FOR NINTENDO 3DS

Share Your Art Using Miiverse, Local Wireless or By Printing Using an SD Card

Pokémon Art Academy box art

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 23, 2014 – Pikachu is one of the most recognizable video game characters in the world, but sitting down to draw him without a guide is trickier than you might think. Go ahead. Give it a shot.

It was tough, right? Lucky for you and your Pikachu-drawing skills, Pokémon Art Academy is launching exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 24. The game teaches you to draw Pokémon from every known region. By following along with a series of fun step-by-step lessons – starting with simple drawings and leading to more complex techniques – artists of all skill levels can learn to perfect the art of drawing various Pokémon. Many Pokémon images are available in the game, including fan favorites like Treecko, Torchic and Mudkip, the Partner Pokémon from the upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games for Nintendo 3DS.

“Pokémon Art Academy makes it easy for people of all ages to learn to draw their favorite characters,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “It’s another example of how Nintendo maximizes the capabilities of its hardware systems to deliver smiles and compelling experiences to consumers in unique ways.”

Starting with novice lessons that teach simple line drawing and coloring, you will eventually learn more advanced techniques like shading and light sourcing, using all sorts of tools like colored pencils, markers and pastels. After graduating from the academy, you’ll gain access to a special set of lessons that include Mega-Evolved Pokémon.

Creating any work of art is so inherently satisfying that you always want to share your finished product with friends and family members. Pokémon Art Academy makes it easy to share all of your artistic creations. If you have a wireless broadband Internet connection, you can directly post drawings to Miiverse on Nintendo 3DS. You can also share via local wireless or even save your art to an SD card and print out your colorful creations to post on your bedroom wall or refrigerator.

Pokémon Art Academy

Pokémon Art Academy launches Oct. 24 in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS at a suggested retail price of $29.99.

EMBARK ON A JOURNEY, LIVE THE ADVENTURE AND GET A LIFE IN FANTASY LIFE

New Game for Nintendo 3DS Lets Players Shape Their Own Experience

Fantasy Life Box Art

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 22, 2014 – Imagine a role-playing game in which players can become much more than the traditional sword-wielding hero. Imagine stepping into the shoes of a cook, or a miner, or a tailor, or even the blacksmith that makes the swords equipped by the classic hero. Well, imagine no more. Fantasy Life launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 24. The game lets players experience their dream lives with more than 12 different Life Classes that offer new ways to play and completely transform the role-playing game experience.

“Whether crafting, casting, hunting or battling, Fantasy Life offers an experience for all types of players,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With so many different ways to play, all members of the family, as well as players of all skill levels, can find a Life that’s right for them.”

Fantasy Life represents a refreshing mashup of role-playing game and life simulator. Players forge their paths through a fantasy world full of paladins, pirates and dragons to save the world of Reveria from destruction. Along the way, they can choose from 12 different Life Classes and start the Life that best suits them. Each Life Class, like the combat-heavy Paladin, resource-gathering Woodcutter and crafting-focused Carpenter, comes with a separate set of skills to learn. Once learned, players can switch Life Classes at virtually any time to master more skills and abilities. All Life Classes are equally effective at progressing through the game, and players can use all skills learned in a previous Life Class. This encourages players to switch Life Classes as often as possible, resulting in a robust and interesting journey.

Each Life Class in Fantasy Life has its own gear, items and Quests, as well as an accompanying storyline. Completing Quests helps advance the story, as players explore a vast open world with distinct areas like a castle town, grassy plains, vast desert and dark caves. Players that traverse an area as one Life Class can return later with another Life Class to access new items and resources. In Fantasy Life, players’ choices help shape their adventures, not just their in-game jobs.

Fantasy Life for 3DS

While Fantasy Life can be completed solo, players can team up with friends to tackle difficult enemies and areas through local wireless or online with people who have a wireless broadband Internet connection. There’s even an in-game communication system in Ally mode that allows players to chat in the game with their registered Nintendo 3DS friends. By activating the StreetPass feature, players can even share character data with other players and encounter visiting characters in their in-game worlds.

Fantasy Life launches on Oct. 24 in stores, on Nintendo.com and in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS at a suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information about the game, visit http://fantasylife.nintendo.com.

Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

BAYONETTA IS BACK WITH MORE MOVES, MORE WEAPONS AND MORE CLIMAX ACTION

PlatinumGames Delivers Another Action-Game Masterpiece, Exclusively on Wii U

Bayonetta 2 box art


REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 21, 2014 – Over the top. Breathtaking. Out of control. Stylish. Critically acclaimed. Any of these words can be used to describe the Bayonetta 2 game, the latest action classic from PlatinumGames, launching exclusively for the Wii U console on Oct. 24. Fans of the original Bayonetta game know that the series delivers some of the most intense action, massive set pieces, gorgeous graphics and slick controls of any video game series out there. With Bayonetta 2, everything is taken to the next level. Main character Bayonetta is more powerful than ever, using wild new moves and weapons in various single- and multiplayer modes to take down both angels and demons in a thrilling quest to save a friend from eternal damnation. Just another day in the life of the Umbra Witch herself.

“The action-game geniuses at PlatinumGames have done it again. Bayonetta 2 is the kind of exclusive game that fans are going to devour like Halloween candy,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With its challenging but rewarding game play and over-the-top content, Bayonetta 2 proves the depth and diversity of the library of games that can only be played on Wii U.”


With her magic-imbued hair, chic glasses and gun-toting high heels, Bayonetta is one of the most original characters in video games. She doesn’t just sit back and wait to be rescued. In Bayonetta 2, players take control of this damsel-that-causes-distress and slash, shoot and guillotine through multiple levels that find our heroine going head-to-head with a towering enemy while flying outside a skyscraper, slicing through an army on the back of a speeding train or confronting an angel while standing on the wing of a fighter jet, among other magnificent set pieces. By performing well in battles, players earn medals that reflect their performance, ranging from the room-for-improvement Stone medal to the perfect Pure Platinum.

For the first time in the series, players who want to take on battles with a friend can team up with another player in Tag Climax. In this online co-op mode, players with a broadband Internet connection destroy legions of enemies together, playing as a variety of characters from the game. As players journey through the main story mode, they will unlock Verse Cards that can be used to unlock additional stages in Tag Climax.

Anyone who purchases Bayonetta 2 in retail stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99 will also get the definitive version of the original Bayonetta game at no additional cost, with an additional disc right in the box. When buying the digital version of either game in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, an automatic discount will be applied to the purchase of the other game, making the total for both games just $59.98.

Bayonetta 2

Both the original Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 games include in-game costumes that will be a treat for any Nintendo fan. Bayonetta can wear exclusive costumes modeled after fan-favorite Nintendo characters such as Princess Peach, Samus Aran and Link. These amazing outfits aren’t just for looks, either. When wearing these costumes, the game changes in fun and unexpected ways. For example, while wearing the Princess Peach costume, Bayonetta summons Bowser’s hands and feet instead of infernal demons. Dressed as Link? Listen for a familiar chime after Bayonetta solves a puzzle.

The packaged and Nintendo eShop versions of Bayonetta 2 (with the original Bayonetta) will be available on Oct. 24. For players who want to take the game for a spin, a free demo for Bayonetta 2 can be downloaded in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR NINTENDO 3DS SELLS 705,000 UNITS IN TWO DAYS, 55 PERCENT INCREASE IN HARDWARE

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS logo


Oct. 16, 2014 - Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launched on Oct. 3 in the U.S., and even with only two days of data included in NPD’s September report, the game still managed to finish as the No. 4 best-selling software SKU for the month with more than 705,000 total units sold. Of that total, more than 135,000 units were sold digitally through the Nintendo eShop. The game’s biggest impact however may be on hardware sales. More than 140,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems were sold in September, an increase of 55 percent over sales in August.

Sales of Wii U hardware also saw double-digit increases in September, increasing by nearly 50 percent over sales in August. These gains were driven in particular by two software titles: Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8. Hyrule Warriors launched on Sept. 26 and has already sold more than 190,000 combined units in the U.S. alone. Mario Kart 8 sold nearly 60,000 combined units in its fifth month on the market, bringing its lifetime total in the U.S. to nearly 1.2 million total units.

A great lineup of games for Wii U begins on Oct. 24 with Bayonetta 2, the Wii U exclusive that currently holds a 91 score on Metacritic. That continues with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on Nov. 21 and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on Dec. 5. Also launching on Nov. 21 is amiibo, Nintendo’s foray into the toys-to-life category. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be the first game to launch with amiibo integration. Other games that will support amiibo include Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, with more to come. More details about compatibility and functionality of amiibo may be found at http://amiibo.com.

The Nintendo 3DS library will soon be bolstered by two of the most anticipated games of 2014: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (Nov. 21).

*Data regarding physical sales of games in September are from the NPD Group. Data regarding digital downloads of games and combined physical/digital life-to-date numbers are from Nintendo’s internal sales figures. All numbers, unless otherwise stated, are specific to the United States only.
