Today, Circle Ent. announced on Twitter that they were working on a game for the Nintendo 3DS based on Unity. For some reason, the game will not be a New Nintendo 3DS only: it’s not really a surprise, since it’s already been confirmed Unity could also be used on the regular Nintendo 3DS models. However, developers are advised to focus on the New Nintendo 3DS.
Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3
Yesterday, Square-Enix launched a major promotional campaign for Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 in Japan. Until April 10th, the commercial for the game will be displayed at specific spots in 19 major JR Stations across Japan, including Shinjuku, Akihabara, Shibuya, and more (you can find the full list of stations at the source link below).
This week, Yo-kai Sangokushi will be featured in Famitsu magazine, with a 12-page article. There will be an interview with Yoichi Erikawa (CEO of Koei-Tecmo Games) and Akihiro Hino (President and CEO of Level-5).
Here’s the preview from Famitsu magazine:

Nintendo of Korea will also relocate to an office outside Seoul, and Fukuda Hiroyuki will remain as CEO.
The reason Nintendo chose to carry out that restructuring is because its Korean subsidiary has been suffering financial losses for the past 4 years.
