It’s really happening: Yumi’s Odd Odyssey is out today ⊟
As confirmed by the Nintendo Download email/release today, yes, Natsume’s localization of Sayonara Umihara Kawase will arrive on the North American eShop when it updates today. After all these years, all the import-only releases, the false-start localizations, the delays, and uncertainty, today we can swing a fishing line and put a giant gross eel thing into our virtual pockets.
I thought it was extra important to point out this momentous release, because rather than give it a prominent announcement, Nintendo put Yumi in the “Also New This Week” category, well below a sale on Wii U game show games.BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games
One Piece: Unlimited World Red hitting the West ⊟
Not long after putting out its RPG One Piece: Romance Dawn in the West, Namco Bandai has announced action-adventure game One Piece: Unlimited World Red for North America, Europe, and Australia, releasing this year.
Oddly, while Red was only a 3DS game when it hit Japan in November, it will release for 3DS, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and Wii U in the West — the later two editions will be digital-only. Here’s a trailer after the break:
For LotR and Batman fans, you can now get Arkham Asylum GOTY and LotR: War in the North for a mere $1 (65p in the Queen’s money) in the current Humble Bundle. On top of that, you get F.E.A.R. 2 and F.E.A.R. 3.
Pay a little more (currently just under $5) to add Arkham City GOTY along with Scribblenauts Unlimited.
As always, it’s for a good cause, too.
