02/02/2017 - New Information on Dragon Ball Fusions
6:22 pm pst
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe is back with a new gameplay video for DRAGON BALL FUSIONS. And now it’s
time to get into the Battle System!
IT’S TIME TO JOIN THE FIELD OF BATTLE IN DRAGON BALL FUSIONS!
A Dragon Ball game without gravity-defying duels
between champions is no Dragon Ball game at all! Thankfully DRAGON BALL FUSIONS has it all! In this
new video, you’ll discover all the secrets of its Battle System.
First, the Attack
Triangle – Speed beats Power, Power beats Technique and Technique beats Speed – will help you
to choose how best to strike your target with different Standard, Ki and Special
Attacks. Then the Timeline, at the bottom of the screen; this shows you the next character
who will get to perform an action. Pay close attention to this feature! If this character takes damage, they will move slightly
left, back along the line, and another character may take their place. It’s then time to pull out all the stops with
team combos and chain reactions. But attacks alone won’t win the fight, you also have to defend yourself! Guess where
your enemies will strike to block them and reduce the incoming damage.
Stay tuned, we’ll follow up with the
last gameplay video soon, showing off all you need to know about the Fusions!
BALL FUSIONS will be coming to Europe, Middle East and Australasian territories on 17th
February 2017 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system. To learn more about BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment

Austin, TX – Flying Wild Hog, Devolver Digital, OVERKILL
and Starbreeze have announced a special crossover event between first-person shooter standouts Shadow Warrior 2 and PAYDAY

01/30/2017 - Nintendo Hosts Mario Level-Design Workshop at LA Public Library
5:37 pm pst
Nintendo Hosts a Mario
Level-Design Workshop at the Los Angeles Public Library
Kids of All Ages Built Levels Together in Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS Using Tips from Nintendo Experts
REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 30, 2017 – With the Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS game, which recently launched exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, players of all ages can play a wide assortment of fun
Super Mario courses, as well as create their own wild courses using the game’s intuitive interface. To highlight the
engaging creation aspect of the portable game, Nintendo teamed up with the City Dads Group – an organization focused on giving dads a network to bond with their
children and fellow parents – to bring an interactive “Build, Play, Share” workshop to the Los Angeles Public Library. Hosted by Nintendo game experts on Jan. 27, the workshop provided a fun
space for families and local teens to enjoy building together. But in this case, instead of building something physical in
the real world, participants learned to build virtual courses in the world of Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS.
“With the recent national push for more STEM programs for children in schools, partnering with City Dads Group
and the Los Angeles Public Library was a great opportunity to highlight the level-design capabilities of Super Mario Maker
for Nintendo 3DS,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
“This exciting event helped introduce a new playtime activity for the digital era that families can enjoy together.”
“City Dads Group was fortunate to collaborate with an amazing brand like Nintendo to host a game design workshop
in the L.A. Public Library,” said Lance Somerfeld, co-founder, City Dads Group. “The interactive event immersed
dads and their little ones in winning experiences that are fun for the whole family.”
The “Build, Play,
Share” workshop invited people of all ages to the Los Angeles Public Library’s Central Library in downtown L.A.
to work in teams to conceptualize and build their own courses in Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. Game-design
experts from Nintendo were on hand to lend their expertise to attendees, while also providing tips and sparking course-building
ideas. In addition to this event in Los Angeles, video assets will soon be available on the Play Nintendo website for other organizations to access so they can host their own “Build,
Play, Share” workshops.
Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS features 100 built-in
courses, as well as select courses from the Super Mario Maker game on the Wii U console. In addition, courses that are in progress can be shared with other
players via the Nintendo 3DS system’s StreetPass feature and local wireless so multiple people can collaborate on building
courses together. Nintendo 3DS systems provide a fun way for adults and kids to enjoy video games anywhere, whether on a road
trip, at home in the living room or even in the library! With many different models available, anyone can pick up a Nintendo
3DS or Nintendo 2DS system starting at a suggested retail price of only $79.99.
