I had been waiting for The Last Guardian on any Playstation platform for the longest time, I imagine like a lot other gaming fans as well. When I heard that it was finally being released this year for the PS4, I couldn’t believe it and pre-ordered the limited edition of the collector’s edition anyways. Well, I’m so glad I did as this things is absolutely stunning and totally exceeded my expectations of what I thought I was going to be receiving!

March 20 is the day the DOA5 Plus hits stores so start checking with your favourite importers if you want to snag yourself the Limited Edition version.
The anime, One Piece, does amazing business in Japan more so than what it probably does in other parts of the world and now Sony are acknowledging that by releasing a new One Piece bundle for the Sony PSP.

I blogged a while back about the special 3DS units that Club Nintendo of Japan are offering via a raffle system which some one can enter by buying any two selected games and registering the game’s code. Nintendo will then choose lucky gamers at random to receive one of the 3DS units of their choosing. There have been 1000 allocated for Japan and we have since learnt that there are are also 1000 allocated for Australia.
Well today some pics of the in units in the wild, so to speak, have begun to surface of lucky Japanese gamers that have begun to receive their limited editions already and don’t they look amazing. Fingers crossed, we score one too!
The European arm of Nintendo have released some shots for the limited edition packaging for Japanese RPG, ‘The Last Story’. But it’s not all just looks, the limited edition will be shipping with a mini art book, a soundtrack cd with seven tracks and a premium steel book which should be great for collectors. This packaging along with the game both look absolutely amazing.
Look for it around February 24th, it should be one of the last swan songs for the Wii before more concrete news of the Wii U emerge.
My Nintendo News have just revealed the absolutely gorgeous limited edition black Zelda 3DS model that Nintendo intends on releasing later this year. There really are no words, just feast your eyes on the pic below and if you’re mot moved then check your pulse 🙂
It’s hitting Europe later this year, no firm ETA as yet but if Nintendo are doing this then I hope the Monster Hunter 3DS isn’t far behind either.
UPDATE: This will be releasing across Europe on November 25th, nothing mentioned as yet for USA
