Pokepark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure opening in Europe this July

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2556 days, 5 hours, 15 minutes ago
Friday, May 28, 2010 8:37:34 AM GMT
The latest Pokemon spinoff game, Poképark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, is being localized for Europe, according to a press release from Nintendo. As you might have surmised from the title, the game stars Pikachu and takes place in a Pokémon theme park. As Pikachu attempts to collect the shards of the "Sky Prism" that protects the park, he and new Pokémon friends take part in the park's various attractions. Yes, Pikachu's idea of "helping" is to have fun on all the park's rides. Pikachu is kind of a hedoni... (more)

The latest media released for image epoch's WIi RPG Arc Rise Fantasia introduces "Rogress," the game's summoned creatures. They act as powerful attacks, of course, but also apparently as the source of the "Ray" energy that powers the game's cities and vehicles. (more)

Battle vs. Chess coming this Fall to just about every platform

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2556 days, 5 hours, 35 minutes ago
Friday, May 28, 2010 8:17:20 AM GMT
SouthPeak's infringement-skirting Battle vs. Chess has apparently been pushed back from its initial May launch window, according to a press release. And the fact that May's almost over and the game's not out yet. However, the game is now set to launch this Fall, and will be released for 360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP and PC. So, like, everything except the iPhone and the Lynx. (more)

US Navy considering fitness video games for boot camp

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2557 days, 5 hours, 59 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:53:33 AM GMT
Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket effectively scared an entire generation away from boot camp. However, a new tactic being considered by the US Navy may completely change our perception of boot camp: video games. In the latest issue of Navy Times, Navy Surgeon General Vice Admiral Adam Robinson (he does sound important) suggested that games like Wii Fit and Dance Dance Revolution could help "newcomers to the military service build up the endurance they need to get in shape safely."

Sega announces Sonic Colors, coming to Wii and DS in late 2010

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2557 days, 6 hours, 1 minute ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:51:01 AM GMT
Man, Sega's just full of surprises, isn't it? Earlier today, the company announced Sonic Colors (or Colours, if you live in a country that spells that word that ridiculous way). a new platformer featuring the blue hedgehog and his new troupe of polychromatic friends. Sonic will have to navigate a sci-fi themed amusement park to thwart the plans of -- who else -- Dr. Eggman by saving multicolored aliens, each of which bestow a certain special ability upon the series' attitude-filled protagonist. That soun... (more)

Phoenix Wright's extra DLC case available on WiiWare

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2557 days, 6 hours, 2 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:50:13 AM GMT
Capcom announced that "Rise from the Ashes," the fifth case of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney created for the DS version, is now available as DLC for the WiiWare version of Phoenix Wright. The timing is a little weird on this, since it's DLC for the first game, coming after the release of the second and third Phoenix Wright games. Not that it really matters -- the series jumps back and forth along its timeline anyway. (more)

Last Flight teaser trailer comes in for landing

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2557 days, 6 hours, 3 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:49:03 AM GMT
Bloober Team's extremely gradual rollout of media for Last Flight continues... In October, Bloober Team sent out screenshots; today, there's a teaser trailer, which shows what would appear to be real environments from the game -- we hope. Even at this glacial pace, we're pleased to see progress toward a release of Last Flight, the now-episodic WiiWare action game about a plane full of vampires and the food critic who loves kills them. Being trapped on a plane with a bunch of monsters is a great setup fo... (more)

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Golden Sun series

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2557 days, 6 hours, 26 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:25:59 AM GMT
Yes, I know. Calling Golden Sun a series is a little laughable, but this RPG tournament qualification process is all about including every game the Dtoid Army demands, and the Golden Sun games were high on that list. In last week's debate we opened the flood gates to what will surely be one of the fiercest competitors in the tournament that lies ahead. I basically asked everyone what "generation" of Pokémon games was their overall favorite, and "it was super effective." With almost 200 votes cast, I'd c... (more)

Modder transmits Wii games to iPod touch, which isn't really as fun as it sounds (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2557 days, 6 hours, 47 minutes ago
Thursday, May 27, 2010 7:05:24 AM GMT
Three years ago, a certain obiwan22222 wowed us when he played Wii on his PSP (with a little help from Sony's LocationFree technology). For his next trick, our man has done the same thing on an iPod touch. But wait, you ask -- is there a LocationFree client for iPhone / iPod touch? We don't think so, so we've pinged him for an explanation. He's being extremely tight-lipped about it all, saying only that 1) this is not fake, 2) he got rid of the five second lag, and 3) all will be revealed "soon enough" (... (more)

Xenoblade ads are packed with epic RPG Wii-ness

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2558 days, 6 hours, 7 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:45:29 AM GMT
We just wrapped recording the latest episode of Bit Transmission, and the show had more than a few weird moments. I was particularly shocked by Colette Bennett's genuine joy for the upcoming Wii RPG Xenoblade. Colette loves her PS3 and her HD and her Blu-rays, and she also has a history of feeling genuine pain when forced to squint at the crappy jaggies of yesteryear. For a game like Xenoblade to get her excited, it must be pretty special. My guess is that the soundtrack, put together by several renown... (more)

Review: Bit.Trip Runner

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2558 days, 6 hours, 36 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 26, 2010 7:16:08 AM GMT
Bit.Trip Runner is profoundly difficult, as anyone who has played a previous Bit.Trip game would guess. It's probably one of the hardest games I've ever played, and in a way that most developers don't dare to make their games. Basically, if you already have high blood pressure or a short fuse, you should stay far away from Bit.Trip Runner. And if you don't, you should wear the Wii wrist strap while playing. Not because it uses motion controls, but because you'll occasionally get the impulse to throw so... (more)

NintendoWare Weekly: Art Style Light Trax, Viral Survival, Metal Torrent

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:08:05 AM GMT
There hasn't been a new Art Style game on WiiWare since October 2008 -- they've all gone to DSiWare since that platform launched. Today, the series returns to Wii, in much the same way as it started: with a fancy update to a GBA Bit Generations game. It's accompanied by a compelling, odd-looking game from NIS America. (more)

Hands-on: Puzzle Quest 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2559 days, 6 hours, 46 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:06:48 AM GMT
"So would you call this a return to form?" I asked Infinite Interactive's Steve Fawkner right before I picked up the controller to play Puzzle Quest 2. "Yes, very much so," he replied. Fawkner isn't shy about admitting that Puzzle Quest Galactrix deserved a few of the lumps it got from fans ("They didn't like it when minigames blocked progress on the main game"), and so when his team set out to create a full-fledged sequel to the gem-matching, role-playing hit, they wanted a good mix of updated gameplay ...

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 7:04:40 AM GMT
Treasure knows its shmups, and this week's Nintendo Channel content you just have to see is none other than a Developer's Voice for Sin & Punishment: Star Successor. It's full of interesting behind-the-scenes stuff, like weighing the pros and cons of different control schemes and highlighting some multiplayer stuff. Seriously, if you're going to watch one thing, boot up your Wii and watch this. (more)

The "WiiWaa" doll introduced us to the concept of cramming a Wiimote into a doll's mouth and using that to interact with a game. Majesco is bringing that same idea to a much more mainstream game: the previously trademarked Babysitting Mama. (more)

Dragon Ball Origins 2 demo on Nintendo Channel next week

For all the time we spent expressing our admiration of Game Republic's Dragon Ball: Origins (admiration that will probably also apply to the sequel, though we don't really know yet), Namco Bandai's latest effort will be a lot more effective in convincing people to try it out before its June 22 release.

Super Mario Galaxy had one of the most delightful, transportive soundtracks of any game in the current console generation, with themes both new and familiar set to a sweeping orchestral score. To show off the sequel's equally impressive accompaniment, a YouTube channel purportedly belonging to composer Mahito Yokota has uploaded every single track from Super Mario Galaxy 2 onto a single playlist.

New Legend of Zelda will release when it's 'perfect'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2561 days, 5 hours, 51 minutes ago
Sunday, May 23, 2010 8:01:17 AM GMT
Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has chosen to sidestep the news that the latest Legend of Zelda would release in 2010, instead claiming that fans should not expect the still-in-development Wii game to release until it's absolutely perfect. "Right now it's still in development but the key message that Mr Aonuma and Mr Miyamoto are telling us is that it really has to be perfect when it launches," says the beefy boss. "That is what the fans are expecting. (more)

Nintendo doesn't enjoy making mature games

The other day, Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime stated how Nintendo isn't very good at making mature games. The beefburger boss has since elaborated on his comments, stating that part of the reason is that Nintendo simply doesn't enjoy creating them. "It's a priority for us bringing a range of entertainment. It's a priority for us to have a range of third party licensees see success on the platform," claims the medium rare executive.

Reggie says more Wii MotionPlus games on their way

Sunday, May 23, 2010 7:57:22 AM GMT
I love the Wii. In fact other than Mr. Holmes, I think I might be the most ardent Wii supporter at Destructoid. My Wii is played just as often as my PS3 and 360 if not more, and not just when friends are over. I am a serious Wii gamer. I tell you all this not because I want to be ridiculed by haters, but because I want you to understand the full impact of me saying that I don't own Wii MotionPlus. Not a single one, nor a game that works with it. There just aren't enough games that function with it for me... (more)
