According to Nintendo Avalon Code was on track for February. Since we haven’t heard or seen much written about it Siliconera inquired if this was still the case. A representative from Xseed let us know our suspicions were well founded.   Avalon Code won’t come out here until “early March” now. Actually, that doesn’t sound […]

Avalon Code is possibly joining the already long list of Nintendo DS RPGs slated for February 2009. This isn’t definite, but two retailers plan to ship Avalon Code in North America then. When XSEED announced Avalon Code for North America it was scheduled to arrive in “Q1 2009” so these listings correlate with XSEED’s original […]

As expected, Avalon Code is aesthetically pleasing

By Spencer . August 29, 2008 . 9:18am

Check out Avalon Code’s combat system

By Spencer . May 28, 2008 . 7:43pm

Avalon Code is an action RPG and with the genre comes a certain amount of 3D slashing. The first movie of Marvelous’ game demonstrates that and something new. While whacking Hobgoblins you can scan them by hitting them with a giant book. This skill rewrites the information in the book and you can align stones […]
