Secret of Mana makes its way to iTunes

Square Enix seems to have entered the holiday spirit in quite the special way. Instead of just sending off cute Christmas cards to games journalists, like many other publishers, they're turning on the deals for consumers. Well, not typical Square Enix consumers, but iPhone and iPod touch gamers will now be able to pick up pretty much the entire Square Enix content library for half off. But that's not even the most exciting part! The exciting part is that they're releasing an iPhone/iPod Touch version of the seminal favorite, The Secret of Mana. This old favorite from 1993 isn't as beloved as some of the Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest classics, but there are some major fans for the adventures of Boy, Girl, and Sprite. Even more, this is one of the few games in which you get to take on Santa Claus, making The Secret of Mana one of the few videogames with a distinct Christmas element. Hit the jump for a complete list of discounted titles. Read More

Akihabara Strategy Guide: Game Purchasing In The Land of the Rising Sun

If you're a fan of video games, and you're visiting Tokyo, then I can only assume that one of your first stops on your whirlwind Japan tour will be Electric Town Akihabara...and why wouldn't it be? This neon district of electronics stores, arcades (some of the most famous in the world), Japanese junk food, maid cafes, and quirky manga/anime retailers makes up one of the most characteristic - if not sterotypical - places to explore in Tokyo. Although Akihabara is generally fairly easy to get around as a foreigner, in general you need to be careful where you go and what you buy - it's easy to get caught up in the chaos only to regret it later.

Wii-kly Update: Secret of Mana, World of Goo, Street Fighter II Special Champion Edition, and Art St

My wife hasn't been feeling very well for the past few days, but thankfully Nintendo has come to the rescue with this week's Wii-kly Update. Alongside new WiiWare titles World of Goo and Art Style: CUBELLO, they've also finally released one of her old favorites from the Super NES to Virtual Console in Secret of Mana. It's no cure for what ails, but at least maybe this will take her mind off things.WiiWare World of Goo (2D Boy, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone—Comic Mischief, 1,500 Wii Points): World of Goo is an award-winning, physics-based puzzle/construction game made entirely by two guys. Grab living, squirming, talking globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins and giant tongues. The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo are curious to explore—but they don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious. World of Goo Corporation is contractually obligated to state that everyone is a winner, and is enthusiastic to celebrate everyone's Goo building opportunities equally. Art Style: CUBELLO (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Art Style: CUBELLO mixes the strategy and feel of a traditional puzzle game with the precision and reflexes required in a shooter. As each stage begins, various colored cubes form into one large object called a Cubello, which floats and rotates as you play. Launch additional cubes from your magazine and try to connect four or more of the same color, removing them from the Cubello and eventually leaving only its core. Take on the challenge of either Stage or Endless mode and watch what happens when Bonus Time is activated. The straightforward controls and goal ensure that anyone can play, while offering enough depth that even advanced players will find themselves quickly addicted to the unique world of Art Style: CUBELLO. Virtual Console SECRET OF MANA (Super NES™, 1-3 players, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older—Mild Fantasy Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes, 800 Wii Points): Good and evil battle for a young warrior's heart. There is one force in the universe that keeps good and evil in perfect balance. It is called the tree of Mana. But a magic sword has tricked a young warrior into upsetting this balance, spreading evil throughout the land. Thus, the warrior must undertake a dangerous journey to find the seeds of the Mana tree, which have been hidden for centuries. Only then can perfect harmony be restored. In this incredible adventure, things are not as they seem. Magic swords release evil as well as fight it. Treasure chests hold booby traps. Monsters are friends and friends are enemies. Potions give power, black magic takes it away. Dragons fly, weapons change. It's a world turned upside down that you must help the warrior make right. And the only way to succeed is to solve the Secret of Mana. STREET FIGHTER II': SPECIAL CHAMPION EDITION (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated T for Teen—Violence, 800 Wii Points): STREET FIGHTER II': SPECIAL CHAMPION EDITION was the first STREET FIGHTER game released for the Sega Genesis console. The STREET FIGHTER series can be considered one of the first fighting games to popularize competitive video game fighting. This version of the game contains both the CHAMPION and HYPER rule sets, from the two editions released in the arcades. It also introduced an exclusive Group Battle mode that is now a general feature in most fighting games. Play as one of 12 different characters, each with their own distinctive fighting style. Try single-player mode or challenge a friend in this legendary, classic fighting game.Also of note is the release of the Genesis title Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition. And here we used to think that Capcom was good at exploiting Street Fighter II; all of these Virtual Console releases seem to put Nintendo in a position to take that crown. But I have to know: With Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II Turbo, Super Street Fighter II for the Super NES already available, is there any reason why anyone would want the Genesis title? Could nostalgia run that deep in anyone? And what's more, I wonder if Nintendo will ever release Super Street Fighter II for the Genesis on VC. Read More
