  1. To be honest:

    No. 1: Useless

    No. 2: Its worth

    No. 3: Awesome

    No. 4: Useless

    No. 5: A plus!

    There you go.

    1. No, Boss Rush never is useless

  2. All of those updates are AWESOME !!

  3. Inti is doing such a great work, glad they decided to do their own thing without any publisher.

  4. God yes now just give me lumen theme and ill be happy

  5. Now if only we'd get releases of those LUMEN themes, too.

    Especially The One and Rouge Shimmer.

  6. Update did really speed up load time jesus. Also boss rush i love it

  7. So... would it be safe to assume the game is Circle Pad Pro-compatible now? Or is there some bass-ackwards thing to where the game is like "Nope, nope, I don't see any extra buttons or a second analog stick" unless you're playing specifically on the New 3DS?

    If so, that's stupid, given that the New 3DS is basically a 3DS that ate a Circle Pad Pro.

    1. not every game needs to use every buttons and sticks. if they want to use it, they could.
