Monster Monpiece is coming to the West, publisher Idea Factory International has confirmed.
The PlayStation Vita-exclusive card-battling role-playing game, which originally launched a year ago in Japan, will arrive in Europe and North America in the spring, according to IGN.
Developed by Compile Heart, the title features a card-battling system where matches take place on a grid.
Throughout their journey players encounter Monster Girls, which are embodied into cards that are used during battles.
The Monster Girls come in four main types - Melee, Ranged, Healers and Buffers - and users will be able to purchase additional cards via the in-game shop.
The Join Nintendo Network Promotion has been announced by Nintendo.
The promotion gives Nintendo 3DS owners in Europe a chance to receive Super Mario Bros Deluxe without payment.
To be eligible to get a free download code for the Virtual Console title, 3DS users must perform the latest system update and register a new Nintendo Network ID on a 3DS before February 1.
Wii U owners can instead link their existing Nintendo Network ID to their handheld.
Download codes will be sent out between February 13 and February 28, according to Nintendo.
Last year, the firm ran a promotion that gave 3DS players a chance to receive Super Mario 3D Land for free.
Rune Factory 4 has been cancelled in Europe, Marvelous AQL has announced.
The action RPG, which made its North American debut last October, was scheduled for a first quarter launch throughout the region.
"We regret to inform you that the European release of Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS has been cancelled," a Marvelous AQL spokesperson told Eurogamer.
"While MarvelousAQL has made every effort to secure the title's release for this territory, it is, unfortunately, not possible to do so at this time.
"MAQL and MAQL Europe would like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm for their European releases. Please look forward to announcements on new MAQL titles over the coming months."
A European release was cast into doubt after Runescape studio Neverland filed for bankruptcy last November.
The developer said its financial status had become progressively worse in the months leading up to the filing, with several failed attempts to raise funds in order to continue operations.
In addition to Runescape, Neverland worked on Luifia and the Shining Force franchises.
Resogun studio Housemarque is working on DLC for the PlayStation 4 downloadable shooter.
In a post on Facebook, the team also revealed that it is developing an unnamed PS4 project.
Asked whether the game would be ported to Vita, a spokesperson said: "At the moment we are working on Resogun DLC and another PS4 project."
Housemarque had previously confirmed that Resogun was up for Action Game of the Year at the DICE Awards.
The studio added: "Fun fact, Eugene Jarvis, creator of Defender, will receive the Pioneer Award on the same occasion."
Resogun is a side-scrolling arcade shooter from the team behind Super Stardust HD.
Launching alongside the PS4 last November, Resogun is available as a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Kinect is the reason the BBC iPlayer app has been delayed on Xbox One, a new report has suggested.
A BBC programmer told Ultimate Gaming Paradise that the team is struggling to make the app work with Kinect.
"We can't seem to get it working; it [the Kinect sensor] is causing a major development headache for the team," the programmer explained.
Unable to provide an exact cause and an estimated release date, a separate spokesperson continued: "BBC iPlayer is already available to audiences on over 1,000 devices and platforms in the UK.
"Whilst we are working to bring BBC iPlayer to Xbox One in the future, we have no further details to share at this time."
After confirming that it wouldn't be available at launch, the BBC said that it was working with Microsoft to bring the iPlayer app to the Xbox One in the future.
All apps have been built from the ground up for Xbox One, offering voice and gesture controls, as well as the opportunity to introduce exclusive Snap features and media achievements.
Xbox One has received its first price cut.
Microsoft's next-generation console has been given a £20 discount by online retailer Zavvi, lowering the price to £409.99.
Xbox One outsold the PS4 in the US during the month of December.
Top-selling titles for the month include Xbox One exclusives Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and Forza Motorsport 5.
The firm previously announced that the Xbox One exceeded three million units in 2013.
Nintendo has suggested it won't put Mario games on smartphones.
Following a recent report that the firm will be looking at smart devices, president Satoru Iwata said the strategy won't be straightforward as putting games as traditional as Mario on the platform
"The spread of smart devices does not spell the end of game consoles. It's not that simple," he said according to The Wall Street Journal.
"It doesn't mean that we should put Mario on smartphones."
While 3DS forecasts were down for the financial year, Nintendo management stated that it was the best-selling games system globally for 2013 - including in the UK and US - proving its strategy is on the right track.
Nintendo has slashed its forecast for Wii U sales from 9m to 2.8m for the financial year, which Iwata has refused to resign over.
Analyst Michael Pachter has suggested that Nintendo should go third-party.
A Square Enix representative has told Digital Spy that the port will release by "the end of winter", suggesting a release in weeks rather than months.
Original story: Final Fantasy VI has been released on Android devices.
The port of the SNES role-playing adventure is available to download for £10.99 on the Google Play store.

The visuals have been given a high definition makeover, a Mog help system will direct lost players, and an album feature rewinds the story to previous points.
It is also based on the 2006 Game Boy Advance remake, which introduced additional magicites and events.
Square Enix said the success of the port may lead to a Final Fantasy VII re-release for mobiles.
Final Fantasy VIII was released on Steam last year with additional features.

China's social media equivalent to Twitter has lost millions of users, a report has claimed.
Government-backed CNNIC has revealed that Weibo's user count dropped by 9% at the end of 2013 to 280.8 million, from 308.6 million the year before.
The decline is the first drop in user numbers Weibo has experienced since figures from 2010, leading many to believe the social network is losing out to new instant-messaging apps.
CNNIC's report suggests this theory may be correct, as around 37% of users who stopped using Weibo began using WeChat, which has grown in popularity.
The instant-messaging app has also contributed to an increase in the number of Chinese users doing financial transactions on their phones - WeChat users are able to order a taxi and McDonald's, driving its growth in the last 12 months.
China's strict government laws on social networking have also impacted on Weibo, making it dangerous to engage in any controversial political discussion without the risk of facing jail.
A new law allows the government to jail any microbloggers whose "inaccurate" messages are reposted over 500 times or viewed 5,000 times, leaving many to resort to safer discussions about celebrities and food.
Despite the decrease, Weibo's user count is still above Twitter's, which stands at 14 million.
