Picross 3D Round 2 (3DS) comes out on December 2nd in Europe.
Rhythm Paradise Megamix
Here’s the European launch trailer for Rhythm Paradise Megamix (on Nintendo 3DS), which is now available in Europe!
Today, Nintendo uploaded three trailers, for some Halloween games on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U:

Where would modern games be without voice actors and motion capture actors? They have become a key elements in the creation of video games (especially the so-called AAA titles), and yet, they don’t seem to be properly compensated. As a result, the SAG-AFTRA, the largest actors union in Hollywood, has officially called a strike early Friday morning against several prominent video game companies.
