Have you ever thought that the video game industry suffers from a dearth of elephants? If so, this Nintendo eShop update will satisfy you and your beliefs!

NINTENDO ESHOP UPDATE – 10/12/2017

Yono and the Celestial Elephants seeks to increase the representation of Proboscidean protagonists in this industry with its mascot, Yono. Our mammalian hero sticks out like a sore thumb in the kingdom he resides in, since it’s populated by humans, robots and the undead. Regardless, Yono’s innate skillset will see him through the game’s many puzzles.

Wulverblade is a throwback to the 80s and 90s, where 2D beat-em-ups were all the rage. Graphically, the game is charmingly animated, giving a level of charisma to the Romans you will be slaughtering. So, are you up for the challenge?

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will launch for the Nintendo 3DS family on October 17. Unsurprisingly, genre-veteran Atlus accounted for all of the standard RPG features, with players freely able to customize yourself and your party. So, prepare for a grandiose quest across the globe!
