I'm running out the door to work so no time for much analysis, but the big surprise I'd say is that Mario and Metroid are both out of the tournament already! Zelda has to be the odds on favorite with two entries in the semifinals, but anything can happen... (more)
Arguably the biggest music/rhythm game for the 3DS just got bigger, as Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call has been announced for North America. No specific date has been given yet, but it's set for release in 2014... (more)
