Block-a-Pix Colour Launches May 17th on Nintendo 3DS!

SteamWorld Dig surfacing February 22nd on Nintendo 3DS!

In the last six months, we here at Image & Form have been busier than ever. SteamWorld Dig 2 launched on multiple platforms to great fanfare. Just recently we brought both the original Dig and the ultimate edition of SteamWorld Heist to Nintendo Switch. But we’ve kept quiet on purpose about one platform… because it’s very special to us. It’s the hardware that put us on the map with the original game, and now that we’ve come full circle, we couldn’t be more proud.

*DRUMROLL*

I’m thrilled to announce that SteamWorld Dig 2 launches on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems next week on February 22! The release will be exclusive to Nintendo eShop and go for $19.99 / €19.99. It’s the ultra-portable version of our biggest adventure, optimized to run at 60 fps even with stereoscopic 3D turned on! It runs like a charm even on the earliest iterations of the hardware, and many of us still enjoy this machine to the max.

We expect great things from the 3DS in 2018, and we firmly believe Nintendo will keep supporting the system for a good while yet. I and the team hope you will enjoy SWD2 when it surfaces next week!

New Details Revealed For Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon!

BELLEVUE, WA—October 5, 2017The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today revealed further story information and new Ultra Beast details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Ultra Wormholes were strange pockets of space that mysteriously appeared throughout the Alola region and were shrouded in mystery. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, these Ultra Wormholes return and players can ride on the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala to travel through them to reach the various worlds that lie beyond. Players can visit many different worlds via these Ultra Wormholes—including Ultra Megalopolis! The world of Ultra Megalopolis is a place that has had its light stolen by Necrozma. Within this world, a mysterious tower-like building shines with brilliant light but whatever waits at the top of this structure is currently unknown.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon players will meet the Ultra Recon Squad, a strange group that have come from a world that lives beyond an Ultra Wormhole. Players will see the story told from different perspective in each version of the game, with Dulse and Zossie playing a central role in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Soliera and Phyco taking that role in Pokémon Ultra Moon. The Ultra Recon Squad bring with them a new Ultra Beast—UB Adhesive.

UB Adhesive

Type: Poison

This Ultra Beast’s head is filled with venom and it shoots this venom out from the poisonous needle on the top of its head. It is said to be intelligent enough to understand human speech and displays many emotions.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, players will be able to meet other new Ultra Beasts in addition to UB Adhesive. In Pokémon Ultra Sun, players will able to meet UB Burst, while in Pokémon Ultra Moon, it will be UB Assembly.

UB Burst

Type: Fire/Ghost

UB Burst has a head made up of a collection of curious sparks, which it can remove and make explode. It tricks targets into letting their guard down with its funny behavior then, when its opponent is close, it surprises them by blowing up its head without warning.

UB Assembly

Type: Rock/Steel

This Ultra Beast is a collection of many life-forms. While it appears to be made up of stones stacked atop one another, each “stone” is in fact a separate life-form. When confronting opponents, the eyes on each of its stones begin to glow bright red.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon launch on November 17, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. For more details about today’s announcement, please visit:
