Dead or Alive 5 Last Round

From the return of certain carrot-colored, foul mouthed hurdler in Q*bert Rebooted to Dead or Alive’s conventional collection of both burly and bikini-clad fighters in Last Round, this schedule of new releases hosts a number of familiar faces. It’s also the week that Nintendo unleashes their New 3DS model, so naturally launch titles such as Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D are on hand to accompany the hardware.

Robert’s Pick: When Monster Hunter was given a stateside release back in 2004, I didn’t quite know what to make it. Although I could perceive months of depth by using the carcasses of fallen creatures to strengthen my weapons and armor, chasing that ambition in solitary form wasn’t always easy given the game’s push toward communal play. But gradually, I stuck with the game, digging into the franchise’s third generation with steadfast gusto. This week’s release of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, with its Nintendo-themed cat costumes and weekly quests is poised to continue my pursuit of bones, scales, sacs, minerals, herbs and horns for at least another fifty+ hours.

  1. If Q*bert: Rebooted was cross-buy, I’d HOP on that.

  2. I really want a NEW 3DS, but three games isn’t a launch for a new system, Nintendo. Make it 7 or 8 and we’ll talk.

    • True, but the New 3DS isn’t really a “brand new” system, just a hardware update. When the XL came out we didn’t exactly get a ton of new games. That’s just Nintendo’s business model.

      • Right- but here’s the thing- people who are interested in a 3DS probably have one. So that leaves people who already own one but want to upgrade. Where’s the reason to upgrade? I see no Amiibo-enhanced games. I see one exclusive New game (Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+) but no one’s buying a New 3DS for that.

      • Too many “news” for me.

        I just found out the New XL has a smaller screen that the old XL, but the form factor is a little bigger. What’s going on there?

  3. You forget to mention the DoA 5: LR free game, where you buy the characters piece meal.

  4. I’m surprised that Fantasy Zone never got an official reboot but Qbert did.

  5. Pong Pong Candy? really?

    Nintendo’s eshop is full of garbage.

  6. Are you going to review Dead or Alive 5: Last Round?
