Hugo Smits of Goodbye Galaxy Games shared a Vine video with me that showcases gameplay from his upcoming Nintendo 3DS, eShop game. Gameplay looks like it will be easy to pick up and play, plus I’m really digging the music, or at least the little snippet that plays in the video.
Earlier today, Natsume announced that Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns will be on sale throughout the month of December. Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to snag the game for just $19.99 on the Nintendo eShop.
The final boss from Find Mii 2, the Dark Emperor, will be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros. 3DS. His role hasn’t been confirmed but fighting him as a boss isn’t outside the realm of possibility.
Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid has posted updates on multiple incoming Nintendo 3DS eShop games over at his official blog.
First up is a surprising announcement regarding an update for Mutant Mudds on the 3DS. Details of this update weren’t announced, but fans can expect to download the update – for free – during 2014. On the topic of Mutant Mudds, Jools also announced that development for Mutant Mudds 2 has been put on hold in favour of finishing up Treasurenauts.
Expected for release in 2013, Treasurenauts has unfortunately been delayed into 2014. The delay is put in place to help Renegade Kid make the game be exactly what they want it to be, which will ultimately give fans an even more polished game.
Cult County was briefly mentioned, although Jools said that more information about the survival horror game would come in 2014.
Lastly, Renegade Kid is also announcing the existence of two more games in development, one of which will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS early to mid 2014. Jools promises more information on that particulare game in January 2014.

Using the Aeterno Blade, Freyja can manipulate time to get herself out of some sticky situations.
