Nintendo Announces Pushmo Sequel, Nothing Else Matters

Okay, okay, so they announced a bunch of other 3DS games, too. I guess.

PUSHMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the list of reasons to own a 3DS and load up the ol’ eShop, Pushmo is high on the list. I’ve been hoping Nintendo would get around to making another one, and it’s happening with Crashmo.

The announcement of Crashmo comes alongside a series of other 3DS news this morning from Nintendo, which includes a lineup of new games for the eShop, previously released retail Nintendo games become available digitally, what’s coming through Virtual Console in the near future, and a list of upcoming game demos.

Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D and Mario Kart 7 can already be purchased in box form, but on October 18, each of them will be available as a $39.99 download on the eShop. Nintendo’s promising more of this, as well.

Here are your eShop heavy hitters, with descriptions courtesy of Nintendo:

  • NightSky launches Oct. 25. NightSky is an action-puzzle game that offers an ambient game-play experience with cerebral challenges that fill uniquely designed, picturesque worlds. Each of these worlds is broken into different areas in which the player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance.
  • Crashmo launches Nov. 22. Players can embrace the laws of gravity and challenge themselves with a whole new kind of action-puzzle play in this exciting sequel to the critically acclaimed Pushmo. New gravity mechanics and gadgets like floating blocks, doors and move switches await, testing players’ skills as they push, pull and slide each puzzle’s colorful blocks in order to climb to the top. Just be careful where those blocks are moved—unsupported blocks will come crashing down. Crashmo contains lots of puzzles to test your brains, and enhanced puzzle-creation and -sharing features mean that even when all the puzzles are cleared, the fun never has to stop.
  • Fluidity: Spin Cycle arrives on Dec. 27, letting players tilt, turn and even rotate their Nintendo 3DS system 360 degrees to maneuver a puddle of water named Eddy through a maze-like, magical world. Change from liquid to a block of ice or a steam cloud to solve fun, gravity-defying puzzles and defeat Goop monsters. Fluidity: Spin Cycle features a new storybook setting to explore that spans the ages, from a lost world full of dinosaurs to the modern world and beyond.
  • Three original games from Level-5 and several well-known Japanese collaborators will launch in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS before this holiday season. The first of these games, Suda 51’s Liberation Maiden, is set 100 years in the future, when the president of Japan boards her Liberator, Kamui, and fights to free her country one region at a time. Aero Porter by Yoot Saito and Yasumi Matsuno’s Crimson Shroud are also slated for release by the end of the year.
  • Get ready to unleash pedestrian-tossing pandemonium with Grace and Savannah in Tokyo Crash Mobs, a fast-paced action-puzzle game coming to the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS in early 2013. Players will need lightning-fast reflexes and an eye for strategy to survive the three chaotic weeks that lie ahead for our heroines, as they take on anyone and anything that gets in their way.

And here’s your Virtual Console lineup:

And here’s some upcoming game demos:

Nintendo is stealing all of my money this Holiday season.

Jerks.

Also they released this piece of video.....goodness?

I don't.....what is....WHAT IS GOING ON?!

Posted by vonFlampanker

Digital Mario Kart 7 might be a good deal. It's one of those games that'd be nice to always have on the system.

Posted by mdnthrvst

Nintnedo?

Really?

Posted by Rolyatkcinmai

Pushmore.

Edited by CommodoreJenkins

I noticed you wrote "Crushmo" at the top. I'm hoping that is next year's game.

Posted by Thoseposers

I feel like Nintendo has been really nailing it lately :)

Posted by jasonlblair

I'm really looking forward to playing Pushevenmo.

Posted by TheEvilCory

Pushmo is cool and all, and I'm excited for Crashmo . . .

but I'm way more excited about the Suda 51 eshop game announcement!

"On the list of reasons to own a 3DS and load up the ol’ eShop, Pushmo is high on the list."

I didn't want to comment. But that first sentence is throwing me a bit. I mean no insult and this isn't one of those "this syntactical error is the gravest I've ever encountered - you're a terrible writer" comments. The sentence is just weirding me out a little. As a lede, you started the sentence with a prepositional phrase and then ended it with the same phrase.

I can't figure out how to read it. Could you change the last "the" to "that"? Could you change "On the list of reasons to own..." to "Of the reasons to own..."? Could you change "...is high on the list." to "...is near the top."? Again, I'm not saying something like "why didn't you think about these other options? Aren't you a professional writer?" - the sentence just struck a dissonant chord within my mind.

Sorry. I'm done. Much love, Patrick. I'm so happy for the success you've had in your personal and professional life. Keep doing what you're doing.

The Guild 01 games coming out separately on the eShop is a nice move. If that's the only way they can get them out here, I'll take it.

Posted by Meepasaurus

More Pushmo! YESSS. This is the most expensive Nintendo holiday season ever. :(

Yeah, it's definitely a redudant sentence. He could've just written "Pushmo ranks high on the list of reasons to use the 3DS's eShop" or something .

A Suda e-shop game? Yes... Yes!

Posted by Zommunism

The worst thing about Pushmo is how every time I play it I really just want a new Picross.

Gee I wonder what Nintendo Europe will end up calling it... Crashblox? Fuck Nintendo Europe.

Posted by King9999

Awesome. I would agree that nothing else matters at this point, but Matsuno's got a game coming, so...

I find the lack of Picross disturbing.

Posted by Pkshields

Fuck yes Pushmo sequel!

Edited by Shaanyboi

Hey, the more awesome shit to play on my 3DS, the better.

Posted by Gilby

Fluidity! If you haven't played it yet, do so. It's a tight, puzzle-heavy metroidvania. Don't be put off by the visuals, you'd be missing out!

Posted by Cybexx

It is nice to see Nintendo leaning into digital releases, I assume this means the release on New Super Mario Bros. 2 went well enough to justify this.

Posted by Driam

Metallica's playing in the eShop? Nice!

A Suda e-shop game? Yes... Yes!

It's part of Guild01, a Japanese retail game that collects four completely different games from four different leads. The Suda game is the first of three which make their way onto the eShop.

Pushmo 2 and Wario Land 2 is all I need.

Edited by Nameless2000

Judging from the footage, I can assume Crashmo is going to have some really brutal levels later on.

Whenever Ryan leaves the room, Jeff nods to Patrick, exchanging no words, only a knowing glance. Patrick checks casually and cautiously over his shoulder and mutters "can't stop the train motherfucker" under his breath.
