Check Out Some of the 3DS Backgrounds Coming Later This Year

Awhile back, we reported that a new update will be coming to the 3DS that will allow users to use custom background images. This new update will be coming to Europe in October, and while there is no official word yet on when it will come out for America, it is safe to assume it will be around the same time.

In the mean time, you can get an idea of what kind of background you want by visiting the Japanese Nintendo website HERE.  Currently, there are around 50 backgrounds to choose from. When the new update launches, players will be able to download these backgrounds from the eShop for around 100 to 200 yen, which is close in price to $1 or $2.

New Trailer for the JRPG "The Legend of Legacy"

Check out this new trailer for "The Legend of Legacy." It's a new JRPG that was just announced last week. The game is coming to Japan on January 22nd. No word has been given on a western release, but the game was just recently announced so I would not expect to hear something about it being released outside of Japan for some time.

"Watch Dogs" On Wii U Won't be Getting Any DLC

More bad news for Wii U owners who are planning on picking up "Watch Dogs." Apparently, the Wii U version will not be getting any DLC of any kind. This means that not only does the Wii U version not include any extra DLC on the disc, despite coming out months later then the other versions, but it also will not be getting any DLC to download on the eShop.

It is a shame that Ubisoft has completely messed up the launch of "Watch Dogs" on the Wii U. It was one of the games I was looking forward to, but will likely pass up in favor of other games coming out on the Wii U this year. Ubisoft complains that their games do not sell on Nintendo systems. Maybe it has to do with the fact that their games come out months late compared to other systems and offer no additional content. Ubisoft even refuses to give us DLC that other systems got. This is not due to the inability to do it, but due to their own refusal to support the Wii U.

EDGE Gives "Bayonetta 2" a 10 out of 10

The popular gaming publication, EDGE Magazine, has just recently reviewed the upcoming Wii U game "Bayonetta 2." In the end, EDGE gave the game a perfect 10 out of 10. It should come as no shock since, back in 2010, the magazine also gave the first "Bayonetta" a 10 out of 10 as well.

"Bayonetta 2" has been scoring high across the board. The popular Japanese gaming publication Famitsu, gave the game a 38 out of 40. One thing is for sure, "Bayonetta 2" on the Wii U does not disappoint. Also, since it comes with the first "Bayonetta" for free, it is the perfect time for newcomers to jump into the action.

The game looks to have all of the charm and great music that the Persona games are known for. Look for this game to hit store shelves in November for both Europe and the United States.

Atlus Shows Off Trailer for "Devil Survivor 2: Break Record"

During the Tokyo Game Show, Atlus showed off a trailer for the long-awaited "Devil Survivor 2: Break Record." The game is coming out in Japan on January 29th, 2015. They did not say if the game would come out in America, but since we got the first one, I would assume we will see some kind of release of this game here. Even if it turns out just to be an eShop release.
