The Alliance Alive
Last week, we learned from leaked Weekly Shonen Jump magazine scans that FuRyu was working on The Alliance Alive, a new JRPG for the Nintendo 3DS. You can check out this post for more details about the game, along with a scan.
And today, FuRyu finally opened… the teaser website for the game proper (instead of just a countdown page). There’s literally nothing there, just a logo and a short gameplay clip that shows some characters running around the world.
Here’s the gameplay clip:
The Alliance Alive (3DS) comes out in Spring 2017 in Japan.
Monster Hunter Stories: RIDE ON (anime series)
On Sunday, the third episode of Monster Hunter Stories aired on Fuji TV, and it’s now available on Crunchryoll (though only in United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland). Shortly after, Fuji TV uploaded the preview for the fourth episode, which will air this Sunday (October 23rd).
Unfortunately, the video on YouTube is region-locked, so we re-uploaded it on Dailymotion:
About the second episode, it also didn’t manage to land in the Top 10 of the most viewed anime episodes during its airing week. That means it had less than a 2.9 average household rating, according to Video Research. But as explained last week, it’s a bit too early to say whether the anime series is a success or a failure, as it wasn’t until the 4th episode that the popular Yo-kai Watch anime made it in this very Top 10.
SEGA 3D Classics
Here’s the boxart for the SEGA 3D Classics Collection 1 – 2 – 3 Triple Pack, releasing on December 22nd in Japan:

Here’s two additional screenshots for Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki on Nintendo 3DS:
Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki (3DS) comes out on December 15th in Japan.
Puzzle & Dragons X
Today, GungHo sent a press release to announce that the Puzzle & Dragons X anime series, which debuted in July, has already topped 23 million views online (with 3 million views in Japan, and 20 million views in China).
Talking of Puzzle & Dragons X, here’s another gameplay video for it:
