Game Description: Embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping, belly dancing genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses…and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy? The third Shantae game is the biggest yet! Beyond Sequin Land lie cursed islands and labyrinths each hiding a new piece of Pirate Gear – Flintlock Pistol, Pirate Hat, Scimitar, Risky’s Boots, and even a Cannon. Upgrade Shantae’s hair and weapons or unlock advanced Fighter’s Moves. Locate maps, return lost Heart Squids, collect rare loot, and laugh out loud at the weird, wild, and wonderfully humorous cast of characters. Unlockable Pirate-Mode, multiple endings, and an unforgettable soundtrack make this one game you won’t want to miss!

Alphadia Genesis

Alphadia Genesis™ (Natsume Inc.)
Wii U (Download)

Game Description: A Battle of Epic Proportions! Alphadia Genesis boasts a rich, complex story starring Fray, a member of the local guild, and Corone, a knight. As their journey progresses and conflicting national interests come to the forefront, it becomes apparent that it may take more than a little work on both their parts if their relationship is to weather the foreboding storm on the horizon. 3D battles feature beautifully rendered graphics, dynamic camera angles, and more skills than you can shake a sword at! Learning to harness these skills will allow you to become more adept in battle, which will come in handy, as some of these baddies will seem nigh unbeatable at first!

Game Description: One year after the events in Mega Man Zero, the hero gets tricked into helping Neo Arcadia’s new commander; becoming caught between Reploids and humans in a new battle to save the world. Blast your way through multiple levels of intense platform-shooter action, using the new Chain Rod to grapple onto ledges, grab items or attack enemies. Also new to Mega Man Zero 2 are Forms – which grant Zero even more powerful abilities, but at a price – and EX Skills which reward the most skilled players with weapons from fallen bosses.
