Citizens of Earth will reportedly be removed from the Japanese 3DS eShop at the end of this month. At the time of writing, a reason for its removal has not been provided. The game was originally released in 2015 on both the 3DS and Wii U and draws inspiration from Nintendo’s EarthBound / Mother series. Right now, it’s unknown if the game will also be removed from the 3DS eShop in Europe and North America.
Interestingly, this is not the first time the game has been removed from Nintendo’s digital storefront. You might recall how a homebrew exploit was discovered in the 3DS version in 2016. It resulted in Nintendo immediately pulling the game from the eShop and this followed with the local publisher Atlus re-releasing the game two and a half months later.
So, if you’re eager to try this out on the 3DS after all these years, now might be a good time to download it, just in case it is removed from the local eShop as well.

Long before EA got the rights to create Star Wars video games, LucasArts and Factor 5 produced the Rogue Squadron trilogy. The first game was released on the Nintendo 64 and PC in 1998 and the second and third game landed exclusively on the GameCube a number of years later.
While Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader and Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike are no longer readily available to the gaming public, the original game – Star Wars: Rogue Squadron – can still be purchased from various digital platforms such as GOG.com.
If you do decide to play it or your old copy on Nintendo 64, you might notice the close-range draw distance and extreme levels of fog from time to time. With this in mind, a group of Star Wars fans is currently working on a high-definition version of the first game in Unreal Engine 4. Take a look below:
It makes us wonder if there’s a chance we’ll ever get to play this series on a Nintendo platform again. Even a direct port of the original Rogue Squadron would be enough, similar to what we saw with the first two Turok games.
If you are seeking a Star Wars fix on the Switch now that you’ve seen this, unfortunately, you’ll have to hold out until September, when Zen Studios releases Star Wars Pinball.

If you play action-adventure games similar to The Legend of Zelda on a regular basis, appreciate cel-shaded visuals and have experienced a Ni no Kuni game before, Baldo by Naps Team – for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC – might be worth keeping an eye on.
The first trailer for this game has been exclusively published by IGN. Apart from this, there’s no other information available. All we do know is it’s coming to the above-mentioned platforms in the future.
The gameplay trailer below gives us our first look at the top-down action adventure. There appears to be plenty of dungeon crawling, puzzle-solving and exploration. It also seems like you’ll meet many different characters and encounter a variety of monsters in the wild.
As for the finer details, such as story, we guess we’ll find out more in time. For now, though, enjoy the stunning trailer below and view some additional screenshots, courtesy of the game’s Twitter and Facebook page.
