Out Today (11th Feb) on eShop (Europe)


Once again it’s Thursday and that means only one thing. It’s update time for the eShop in Europe. Today JRPG fans can rejoice because the wait for Project X Zone 2 is over, bringing more brilliant crossover strategic RPG action. Also the wait for Bravely Second is sort of over with the big release of this week being the Bravely Second demo, yes that’s right a demo. The Bravely Second demo is just any old demo though it is apparently a whooping 10 hours long and can carry across data to the actual game. So what are you waiting for, go download it!

You’ve caught them, you’ve trained them and you’ve battled them – but now you can find out what it’s actually like to be a Pokémon! In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team, you wake up in a world inhabited entirely by Pokémon, as a Pokémon yourself, with no knowledge of how you got there or how you can return to human form. But perhaps there’s a reason for your arrival. Now that you can understand the Pokémon language, you learn that a series of natural disasters is threatening the community. You soon befriend another Pokémon and form a Rescue Team to help Pokémon in distress. You receive missions to rescue Pokémon trapped in dangerous dungeons, which are always randomly generated (meaning that you’ll never play the same dungeon twice), battling wild Pokémon using a turn-based style of combat.

The Legend of the Dark Witch 2 (Download) 

€6.99/ £5.59 / CHF 8.30

Created by indie games company INSIDE SYSTEM in 2014, Legend of the Dark Witch 2 is a 2D action story sequel to the “Legend of the Dark Witch for 3DS”. True to its predecessor, Legend of the Dark Witch 2 retains its simple controls and enough challenges to satisfy the completionist. Players have 8 stages to choose from and must use SHOTs to make their way through a variety of obstacles to reach the boss enemy. Within each stage there are hidden “Pura Syega” which are helpful to power up player characters.

So there you have it, a big day for JRPGs with a retail release (Project X Zone 2) , a download (Alphadia) and two demos (Bravely Second and Stella Glow) on 3Ds. My advice is don’t gloss over Stella Glow as it developed by Imageepoch who have quite a history of RPG gems such as Luminous Arc and Fate/Extra.
