Two more characters from The Legend of Legacy have been revealed in a new character trailer. Liber is a treasure hunter that has set out to Avalon to find riches, and specializes in bare-fisted melee combat, swords, and spears. Garnet is a Templar knight who isn’t seeking loot but heretics to bring to justice, with her trusty long sword and shield at the ready.

3D Gunstar Heroes now available on eShop for 3DS

3DS Gunstar Heroes (3DS) Launch Announcement - Screenshot 1

Treasure’s legendary action side-scroller Gunstar Heroes has been added to Sega’s 3D Classics line. 3D Gunstar Heroes, now available on eShop, features two versions (Japanese and International), local co-op, emulation options, stereoscopic 3D support, and new gameplay modes. The added modes include Mega Life (more health), Mega Shot (double damage), and Gunslinger (allows for players to discover new weapon combinations, a la Alien Soldier). The game’s extensive scrolling and high-intensity action made it particularly difficult to port to 3DS, and it was actually passed over previously. The technically minded curious about how it was accomplished can find some answers in a new interview with producer Yosuke Okunari and M2 president Naoki Horii at Sega’s blog.

As Alto, players will lend a hand by tuning the witches, which will require him entering their hearts in order to rid their psyches of anxiety and fear. Alto has a limited amount of time, so players must carefully consider which witches they will build trust with in order to Tune them.

Bianca is an amnesiac whose stats favor her taking on a support role, while she prefers to arm herself with axes, bows, short swords, and spears. Meurs is one of the few living elementalists, summoned to Avalon for mysterious reasons. He also excels in a support role, armed with a short sword and shield while harnessing the wind.

Chloe revealed in Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight trailer

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold The Fafnir Knight (3DS) Chloe and City Trailer  - Header

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold hits stores and online outlets next week, and today marks the final character reveal for Chloe, the party’s War Magus. As the resident mage, Chloe will be the first to summon when in need of health, resurrection, or debuffs. Her abilities work well with other storyline characters, as well as those the player can recruit when going through the game in classic mode. She is a touch brusque, though. Her trailer can be found below, along with another video that describes how the old town-improvement mechanic works with the new ability to set up advertising campaigns for the local eatery.
