CASTLEVANIA: ORDER OF ECCLASIA

Following on the success of Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin the legendary Castlevania series brings back the intense side-scrolling action gameplay that we love to the Nintendo DS console under the master production of Koji Igarashi! 

This time around you will play as a member of the Ecclesia, an organization that has sworn to defeat the evil forces of Dracula. Players will make use of the 'Glyph attack' combat system, which has more than 100 different combinations that can be executed simultaneously during battle with Dracula and his minions.

CASLTEVANIA: PORTRAIT OF RUIN

Nintendo DS™ [2D Sidescroller]

The Metroidvania genre is obviously a VERY welcomed one on our Weekly Special; this classic title for the NDS celebrates that love by evolving the formula even further! 

Take control of two heroes, vampire killer Jonathan Morris and his ally Charlotte Orlean, a girl with tremendous magical ability on another legendary Castlevania adventure. The biggest addition to the game was, and is, the ability to freely switch back and forth between both characters and each of  their unique and powerful skills - even combining their powers together for a 'Dual Crush'. 

Amidst the chaos of World War II players will explore the return of Dracula's Castle, as well as Egyptian deserts and Victorian towns and the over 155 creatures that inhabit the worlds. 

Like the games before it Portrait of Ruin features multiple endings, each with a different outcome and set of consequences!

PlayStation®Vita [Visual Novel]

A 16-year-old girl whose mother passed away when she was a child, and her father has gone missing. She dreams of becoming a seafaring adventurer, having been influenced by watching church plays, hearing epic heroic tales, and learning that her missing father was also an adventurer who crossed the ocean. To fulfill this desire, she leaves the town in which she had comfortably lived and ventures to the port King's Bridge.

Presented with an opportunity to go to sea she becomes caught up in the activities of the pirates. Two seafaring methods present themselves to our protagonist: the first being to join the pirates, or the navy.

Will she choose to live her life as a pirate aboard their ship; joining the elusive and whimsical crew lead by its chivalrous yet self-centered ore-sama captain and the always calm, cool and collected deputy captain with a scary smile? Or will she join the ranks of the navy; answering to a young-looking naval commanding officer who’s proud of his nobility and the older, taciturn deputy commanding officer who exudes an aura of depth?

Nintendo DS™ [RPG]

Another great, but hardly mentioned, RPG where the items you find are everything! Harvesting ingredients from everywhere & combining or distilling them to make new items are the core mechanics of this whacky Japanese game. 

The game follows the 3 friends Piquet, Ellice, and Ritt, who while in their father's workshop they come across a strange device called 'Tribolt'. They manage to get it open & climb inside for a better look, inadvertently setting it off and transporting them to the kingdom of Afillia!

Your only goal is to get home by producing the missing parts of the machine while doing so you end up doing many quests to obtain the parts you need, and there are parts nearly everwhere! From the ground, to the trees, to shops in town and creatures that roam the lands!

An alchemy-style game at heart, the English title being 'The Relationship Between Our Science and Magic', players will find themselves creating and combining a whole library of items.

MEDABOT 8 [KABUTO VERSION]

Nintendo 3DS™ [RPG]

If you boil Medabots down to the absolute basics it is fairly safe to equate the game to Pokemon with robots, but there is definitely more to it than that. Yes, it is a JRPG about collecting and progressing with various minions/creatures but Medabots has a surprisingly nuanced battle system, as well as robot consctruction system.

The gameplay during battles is primarily time-related and gives players the abilityt to both attack or defend; you must destroy your opponent's various body parts (head, arms, legs) although destroying the head renders your opponent essentially defeated. Each battle has a time limited and the victor is determined by the number of enemies/parts defeated.

The robot construction is wherethe game really get interesting! With 800 total construction parts for the head, right and left arms, and legs and with a huge variety of metals players can create numerous variations.

Victory earns players robot parts which can be either used or sold for cash, which can in turn be used to buy more robotic parts!
