I'm the founder and administrator of Nintendo Charged. I've dedicated the past three years to keeping our readers in the loop with the imaginative world of Nintendo. My biggest gaming interest at the time is the Nintendo Wii U and it's upcoming games, but I've been a close follower of the 3DS since launch in 2011. My favorite game as of now is The World Ends With You on DS.

If you have any questions, or just want someone to play online with, leave a comment! I hope you enjoy your visit at Nintendo Charged.

Review: Bit Boy!! ARCADE (3DS eShop)

Nintendo Charged Bit Boy ARCADE Header.png

SMALL PIXEL, BIG ADVENTURE.

Bit Boy ARCADE is literally a story of the ups and downs of game development, in the form of a video game. Sometimes things don’t work out, and you have to scrap entire ideas and characters, but with a little hard work, and a whole lot of perseverance, something new and beautiful is made. In this game, a game creator and his creation are brought together, and while they have their differences, they team up to bring peace back to the world of pixels. This game was released yesterday on the Nintendo 3DS eShop for $7.99, and I’m sure you’re wondering whether or not you should give it a try. Read on for my opinion!

Cult County is STILL Coming to 3DS

cultcounty4Although the eerie survival horror Cult County is now coming to home consoles and PC, the developers at Renegade Kid have shared that it is still coming to Nintendo 3DS.  This is a big relief, since it was originally announced for Nintendo’s feisty handheld.  Also, there’s just something about playing a survival horror game on my 3DS with 3D on that gives me chills.  After playing and beating the crap out of Resident Evil: Revelations, I’ve been dying to see more of the horror genre on 3DS.  In their latest Kickstarter update, Renegade Kid confirmed that the 3DS will be added to the platform lineup, as long as they reach their stretch goal of $580,000.

If you want to play the game on 3DS, be sure to support Renegade Kid in the development of Cult County.

Review: Conception 2: Children of the Seven Stars (3DS)

index

Conception 2: Children of the Seven Stars is a game that has been a trending topic in the world of gaming as of late, due its bizarre story and similarity to the Persona series.  Have you ever heard of a game where you make babies to save the world?  Well, now you have.  This labyrinth-crawling RPG (developed by Spike Chunsoft) was released to North America today on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.  The Vita version was made first, which makes this 3DS version a port.  In fact the kind folks at Atlus have even shared that they made fewer copies of the 3DS version compared to those on Sony’s handheld.  Say whaaaaat?

That being said, does it stand up to its original version, or would you be better off buying it for the Vita?  Find out in my review!

Review: Cut the Rope: Triple Treat (3DS)

cut_the_rope_triple_treatAt first glance, this might look like a new game. In reality, it is a collection of previously released games, brought to Nintendo 3DS! Cut the Rope: Triple Treat includes the first three games in the popular mobile series: Cut the Rope, Cut the Rope: Experiments, and Cut the Rope: Time Travel. Is it worth the $29.99 price tag? It is a good fit for 3DS? Find out in my review!

Is Nintendo Making Super Mario Galaxy 3 Next?

super_mario_galaxy_bowserIn a recent interview with Edge magazine, Super Mario 3D World producer Yoshiaki Koizumi revealed that the development team are already working on a new title.  He is not yet able to confirm what the game is, or whether it’s coming to Wii U or 3DS, but he did note that they are already working on new game mechanics.  What better title to add new mechanics to than one in the Galaxy series?  Nintendo has previously hinted towards another game in the series, but they were in the middle of Super Mario 3D World at the time.  We can’t be for sure, but do do have a pretty big hunch that the next game will be Super Mario Galaxy 3 for Wii U.  What do you think?

Review: Bravely Default (3DS)

Bravely Default Box ArtThis probably isn’t the first time you’ve seen the name Bravely Default.  If you haven’t then I would assume you are probably sharing the same first impression that we all had: “WHAT DOES THAT NAME EVEN MEAN?!”  I know; the developers couldn’t have picked a more awkward and confusing name if they tried.  Despite the strange name, it has done remarkably well in the West.  The game received overall positive reviews from critics, and even topped the spectacular launch sales of Fire Emblem: Awakening last year.  You’re probably asking, what’s the big deal with Bravely Default?  Why is it so great?  Find out in my review!

Is There a Mario DLC Zone Coming to Sonic Lost World?

28437TropicalCoast_Zone4_130830_06Anything’s possible!  Sega plans to bring Wii U owners more DLC zones to Sonic Lost World, and judging from the last two Nintendo-themed levels (based on Yoshi’s Island and The Legend of Zelda), a Mario zone would fit right in.  Producer Takashi Iizuka has shared that he and the Sonic Team still want to make more Nintendo-influenced downloadable content.  Here’s what he said:

“Sonic Lost World is a title that only released on Nintendo hardware, which is an opportunity that I couldn’t believe, collaborating together. This time, the appearance is interesting, as combining Sonic into such a world is extremely foreign, and I wanted to aim at the unexpected.”

“In normal production, the hardest part is building up the base of the game. Stages can normally be changed simply by variations, but this time, it was shaped to be a different experience on each stage of the DLC, which is why it took so long to complete.”

“The team says that the music, sound and songs of The Legend of Zelda were entertaining to try and re-create and is now interested in working on more levels that allow it to collaborate with Nintendo.”

How awesome would it be to explore the colorful Mushroom Kingdom as Sega’s iconic blue blur?  It would sure be a shame if the developers didn’t do a Mario zone, but there are also a ton of other Nintendo worlds I would love to see Sonic visit.  Where do you want Sonic to visit next?
