37: Wii Be Dead, Borderlands 2 Vita Tease & Poked on the Bus

Hey there and welcome to episode 37 of Heroes Of Handheld!

[Ignore the Youtube Gaff, it is indeed Episode 37!]

There’s loads to talk about this week, broken up into three easy chunks:


  • The announcement of Batman: Arkham Knight for PS4 and XBox One, along side its fabulous debut trailer:
  • The “Nintendo Wifi Connection” for DS and Wii is shutting down in May- bad news for Wii and DS owners who still play games online!
  • Another potential Borderlands 2 Release Date leaked on Dell’s site – though it’s yet to be officially confirmed (we’ll edit this article if it’s confirmed before next week!)
  • VGChartz  have released their top ten list of games sold for 3DS last year – makes for an interesting read!
  • Sony are abandoning their FourSquare support for PS Vita
  • Pokemon is on Netflix! Including all of the first series (The Indigo League) and some of the more recent movies – makes for a great binge.
  • Fez is coming to PS3, PS4, and our beloved Vita on March 25th – and it’s a cross-buy title! Trailer below:
  • There’s a hidden trailer in Bravery Default, found using the Konami code – watch at your own spoileriffic risk:
  • Twitch Plays Pokemon managed to finish Pokemon Red on Sunday, and you can watch the triupmphant final moments below:


There’s two new maps for Killzone Mercenary on Vita! Colin briefly talks about them both. You can hear his original review of the game here.

Chris has been sinking a daft amount of time into Pokemon Y, and still only has one gym badge! You can hear his initial impressions of the game in this ep, with more to come in later weeks I’m sure.


We’ve made predictions about how long we see the 3DS and Vita lasting, as well as guessing what’s next in terms of portable hardware from Nintendo and Sony.

That’s it!
