Square Enix has a new 10-minute video online that takes a look at the upcoming Nintendo 3DS action-RPG, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The whole thing's in Japanese, but it's easy to overlook the language barrier when you're getting peeks at a variety of Disney franchise nods from the upcoming game: The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Three Musketeers, Pinnochio, Sorcerer's Apprentice (the Fantasia one, not the live-action movie) and, awesomely, TRON.

We also learn a few new things about the game. Ursula, the villainous evil queen from The Little Mermaid, is back as one of the game's boss encounters. You also get to see digitized versions of Garrett Hedlund and Jeff Bridges -- both versions -- from TRON: Legacy. Also: digitally re-created young Jeff Bridges still looks creepy in the 3DS game. Just saying. Dream Drop Distance arrives in Japan at the end of next month, though North America's release date continue to stand as a hazy "2012."

Battleship Video Game Announced

A Battleship video game is coming, gamers, so prepare thyself! Developed by Double Helix Games for the Nintendo DS, 3DS, 360, PS3 and Wii, Battleship is inspired by the the well-known kids' game as well as the movie version of the well known kids' game. It is a "seek and find" adventure that is aimed as a stand-alone story from the motion picture. The idea is to provide a "blend of strategic naval command and first-person action gameplay."

“We’re geared up for an outrageous sea and land conflict with the all new Battleshipvideogame,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing.  “Inspired by the film’s exciting action and stunning backdrop, the game is next-gen naval warfare that thrusts players into the middle of humanity’s last stand against an unfamiliar menace.”

Nintendo Hires A Movie Star Spokesdog. Finally.

I'm going to let Nintendo take this one away, since the press release that just arrived in my mailbox starts off on such a deliciously punny note. "In a move that’s got tails wagging from Hollywood to Manhattan," -- holy crap, really?! -- "Nintendo of America is teaming up with Uggie, the talented Jack Russell terrier known to moviegoers as the canine co-star of The Artist."

Uggie will follow in the grand tradition of product-pimping pups like Spuds MacKenzie, the Taco Bell chihuahua and that fat golden retriever from the weird Volkswagen/Star Wars Super Bowl commercial (has anyone figured out why that exists yet?) in helping to hawk Nintendo's nintendogs + cats 3DS game/pet simulator. Kidding aside, Uggie is actually serving the good cause of helping to celebrate February as Responsible Pet Owners Month.

Resident Evil: Revelations Box Art Typo -- Capcom Botches Packaging Once Again

You might have missed this if you don't follow the Twitters too closely, but Capcom's Nintendo 3DS release this week, Resident Evil: Revelations, arrives with an unfortunate typo on the game case's spine that reads: "Resident Evil: Revelaitons." And yes, it's just a typo, not some odd (and incorrectly spelled) hint toward a coming cross-franchise effort featuring characters from RE and Professor Layton.

The publisher is aware of the error, and promises in a Capcom Unity post that it will only be a problem in the initial North American shipment of the game. Spelling-obsessed fans who simply cannot abide seeing the typo on their game shelf can politely request a replacement sleeve from Capcom customer service; call them at 650.350.6700 or e-mail them at accounts@capcom.com.

Battlefield 3

While Battlefield 3 didn't outsell its rival Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the game has done very, very well for parent company Electronic Arts. According to EA, Battlefield 3 sold over 10 million copies. That's not copies-shipped, either. That's copies sold.  Soccer simulation FIFA 2012 also topped 10 million in sales, and Madden NFL 2012 sold over 5 million copies.

The good news comes by way of EA's quarterly financial results. Overall, it's been a really good quarter for the company. They boast:

"We recorded our highest operating cash flow in 31 quarters and grew segment share in both Europe and North America," said Eric Brown, Chief Financial Officer. "Third quarter non-GAAP digital revenue grew 79% year-over year, and we achieved our goal of generating over $1 billion in non-GAAP digital revenue on a trailing-twelve-month basis."

That's another way of saying, "Cha-CHING."

Ace Attorney 5 Announced By Capcom

Capcom officially announced Ace Attorney 5 and revealed its logo at the series' 10th anniversary event in Tokyo. However, even though they announced the game, they didn't give any details about it including the release date, platforms it will be offered on, or characters it will include.

The event also revealed a few more things, like that Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney for the Nintendo 3DS will be out this year. We also learned that new HD versions of the first three Ace Attorney games are going to be released on the iOS.

I'd say that's a lot of pretty great news for Ace Attorney fans. Are there any objections to any of these titles from you?

Resident Evil Revelations

Capcom has announced Resident Evil Revelations will be getting a price cut. The title was originally set for $49.99, higher than most 3DS titles, since it came on a 4GB card rather than 2GB. "After weeks of effort" Capcom was able to lower the price to $39.99. According to the Capcom blog, "Revelations has enough content to warrant the $49.99 price."

Now that it's cheaper, will you be picking up Resident Evil Revelations when it's released on February 7th?

Mario Hails A Cab

More Nintendo news, readers, specifically, news of the dear leader of the world of Nintendo, Mario. There is a new 2D, side-scrolling Super Mario game in the works for the Nintendo 3DS. No other information was revealed about the title, beyond the expected launch window sometime within Nintendo's next fiscal year. That means the new Mario will be out sometime after March 2012.

Nintendo Reveals Nintendo Network

During an investor presentation held last night, Nintendo's Satoru Iwata gave the world a glimpse of what we can expect from the Wii U when it launches later this year. One of the most interesting pieces of news concerns Nintendo's online plans: The revelation of The Nintendo Network, Nintendo's online platform.

The Nintendo Network seems planned as a fully functional online hub, like the PSN and Xbox Live. It will allow "competitions and communication among users, as well as the sales of digital content." On the Wii U, you'll have personal user accounts, too.

Resident Evil: Revelations Box Art Typo -- Capcom Botches Packaging Once Again

Unfortunately for Capcom, it seems as though the company has mistakenly botched the Resident Evil: Revelations box art packaging. The company accidentally put Resident Evil: Revelaitons on the spine of their upcoming Nintendo 3DS game.

I'm not going to say that I never make typos. In fact, many of you point them out to me on a daily basis. But this is a game that has already been sent out to retailers as it has a February 7th release date, which means it's definitely too late to fix.

Punch-Out!! Knocks Out The 3DS eShop Next Week

Fans from Nintendo's good old days of dominating the video game console scene will be pleased to learn that the classic NES boxing game, Punch-Out!!, will be entering the 3DS eShop ring in Japan next week. That's not much help if you live in North America, but it does make an eventual stateside eShop release of the game a very real possibility. Which, I think we can all agree, is excellent news.

Nintendo's official product page (via Siliconera) confirms that the game will be coming on February 1 with a 500 yen price tag, which converts to around $6. There's nothing special about this release, no 3D support or anything like that... but it's Punch-Out!!! It's also the first Virtual Console NES game release in the 3DS eShop that isn't part of the handheld's Ambassadors Program lineup.

Rayman Origins is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. The charming, whimsical platformer is already out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii but now you'll be able to play it in a whole other dimension on March 20.

Ubisoft also confirmed that the Vita version of Rayman Origins is still on track to debut on February 14, a week before the handheld console actually hits store shelves. But you'll be able to look at the pretty box and pretend you're playing it, which is neat.

Nintendo 3DS Battery Lets You Void Warranty For 10 Hours Of Play Time

Nintendo continues to see improving sales for its 3DS handheld, especially now that there are such strong games to play on it, but the device's short battery life is still a sticking point for a lot of people. There's a new third-party solution out in Japan that promises to improve the 3-4 hour play time you get with a stock unit to more than 10, Andriasang reports. It's definitely of the "warranty voiding" variety, since you actually have to remove the handheld's rear covering and replace it with the battery pack, making your 3DS 9mm thicker in the process.

The battery pack comes from Japan Trust Technology and it's available in multiple colors: white, red and pink for roughly $130 U.S. dollars (¥9,980) or blue and black for roughly $120 U.S. dollars (¥9,480). Andriasang hasn't actually tested the product, but you can see it yourself, as well as pics detailing the installation process, on JTT's website.
