Cygames, the Japanese mobile game developer responsible for hit titles Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut) and The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, is opening their own anime division. While Rage of Bahamut and Cinderella Girls have both received anime adaptations (Cinderella Girls is currently airing now), the studio would like to start creating their own anime, both based on their current properties as well as original works.

The studio is currently recruiting the positions of anime producer, production assistant, and IP management. Cygames accept applications through its official website.

Yacht Club Games has revealed details on its upcoming Shovel Knight expansion, Plague of Shadows. The expansion will be free to owners of the original game and is slated for a Q2 2015 release.

From their blog:

In this adventure, you play as Plague Knight, the villainous master of alchemy, in a quest all his own. Using his maniacal scientific mind, Plague Knight is seeking to concoct Serum Supernus, the Ultimate Potion. However, to retrieve these ingredients, he must extract them from his former allies… the villainous knights of the Order of No Quarter!

The studio promises that Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will deliver “a new play style, new story, new bosses, and more,” including a new alchemy crafting system.

Plague of Shadows will be on-hand and playable at PAX East at the Yacht Club Games booth.

Second and–arguably–most important of all: Nintendo released a new teaser for an upcoming Fire Emblem game for the 3Ds.  And after basically living and breathing psuedo-European fantasy thanks to (wonderful) months of Dragon Age: Inquisition and The (less wonderful) Hobbit , I must say that this trailer was a refreshing breath of fresh air, one to get any Fire Emblem fan really excited:

So now that we know that feet are confirmed for all in-game models–let’s get down to the nitty gritty and have a brief chat over why this is really something special.
