Thanks Simon Carless / Source Gaming for the heads up.

DJMax Encore

This week-end, at the London MCM Comic Con, Rising Star Games showcased an unnannounced game for the Nintendo 3DS: DJMax Encore. The DJMax Portable series is the handheld variant of the DJMax series (DJ-themed rhythm games), and first appeared on the PSP.

Very little is known about the game (which hasn’t been officially announced yet), but it seems like it’s based on DJMax Portable 2 / DJMax Portable Hot Tunes. As for the game, there is several modes:

  • 4 Button
  • 5 Button
  • 6 Button

The game uses the D-Pad and the Y,X, and A buttons. The background animations are played on the top screen, and notes are displayed on the bottom screen.

Here’s some pictures:

Head after the break for the rest of this post!

Space Probe

Space Probe is a (retro-inspired) game about collecting monsters and exploring the universe, which could be coming to the New Nintendo 3DS if the Kickstarter campaign is successful. For that, the developers need only £1 000 (with £665 already funded), as the Kickstarter campaign is only there to help them finish the game.

For the New Nintendo 3DS version, however, they need £4 000 more. If £5 000 are pledged before the end of the campaign, Space Probe will be ported to the New Nintendo 3DS (and not the older models). It will be a straight port, but with some additional content.
