Metroid Blast revealed as an attraction for Nintendo Land
New screenshots leaked from an upcoming issue of Game Informer show a previously unrknown game, Metroid Blast, which will be in the upcoming Wii U title Nintendo Land. Metroid Blast appears to be run and gun game based around the universe of Metroid. Players’ Mii characters will don the armor of legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran, and screenshots indicate that there may be modes of Metroid Blast that are both co-operative and competitive. Other details such as how Metroid Blast controls, to what extent the Wii U GamePad will be used with it, and if any other modes are available are unknown now, but we’ll probably find out when the next issue of Game Informer comes out.

Still hope for a true sequel to The World Ends With You?
Fans of Nintendo DS game The World Ends With You were disappointed last month when Square-Enix’s special announcement turned out to just be an announcement of an iOS port. But is there still a chance that we’ll get a real TWEWY sequel? A secret ending in the iOS version, Solo Remix, was discovered last week that shows a new character standing in front of building adorned with the cryptic phrase “NEW 7 DAYS”. Could this possibly be an indication that Square-Enix intends to create a new game? Or is this just something indicating that there will be future DLC for the iOS game?

Sakura Samurai rated for Australia
A rating for the Nintendo 3DS eShop game Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword was filed today with the Australian Classification Board. It has been titled Hana Samurai for the territory, and a European rating and release seems inevitable considering that Nintendo’s distribution with the PAL regions go hand-in-hand. Hopefully players in Europe and Australia will be able to cross swords along with the rest of the world on the eShop soon.
