Nintendo still lists Xenoblade for North America in 2011

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2395 days, 2 hours, 46 minutes ago
Sunday, January 30, 2011 9:20:35 AM GMT
Depending on how optimistic you are, there is good news for those of us who want to see Xenoblade localized. Many gave up hope on this roleplaying game, believing it even less likely to get a Western release than The Last Story, but Nintendo says otherwise. (more)

Nintendo opens teaser site for Wii 'Pandora's Tower'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2396 days, 2 hours, 45 minutes ago
Saturday, January 29, 2011 9:20:45 AM GMT
Today, Nintendo of Japan posted a teaser site for a new Wii game called "Pandora's Tower: Until I Return to Your Side." Not a thing is known about it other than what can be seen and heard on the site, which means all we can confirm at this point is a back tattoo and the spoken line "Dying and becoming beautiful, or living even though you're ugly. Which will make you happier?" (as translated by Andriasang). If we had to guess, we'd say this looks like the work of Xenoblade developer Monolith Soft. (more)

Pokemon Typing DS' comes with Bluetooth keyboard

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2396 days, 2 hours, 49 minutes ago
Saturday, January 29, 2011 9:17:39 AM GMT
When Battle & Get: Pokemon Typing DS was first revealed during last year's Nintendo Conference, we figured "players" would have to use their styli on an on-screen soft keyboard in order to type out pokémon names. But, of course, that would have been exceedingly silly. (more)

Unconfirmed video of Evil Ryu and 'Oni Akuma' spotted

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2401 days, 4 hours, 35 minutes ago
Monday, January 24, 2011 7:30:41 AM GMT
Here it is, the first footage of Evil Ryu and the character that fans (such as myself) were calling "Oni Akuma" in Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. Well consider the Oni Akuma name dead, as according to these screens and videos, this new purple demon is named "Oni". The new name fits, as he appears to be more fearsome and devastating than Akuma ever was (Shin or otherwise). (more)

Last Story too much effort for Nintendo to localize

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2404 days, 1 hour, 47 minutes ago
Friday, January 21, 2011 10:19:01 AM GMT
Nintendo has further explained its decision to keep Mistwalker's The Last Story in Japan, claiming that it's "not viable" to bring the game overseas. The justification makes specific reference to Europe, where Nintendo doesn't feel it's worth the compulsory language options. (more)

Yuji Naka unveils 'Machinist of the Sky Rodea' for Wii and 3DS

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2405 days, 4 hours, 4 minutes ago
Thursday, January 20, 2011 8:02:25 AM GMT
Here's something refreshing: 3DS news that isn't from a Nintendo event. The latest Famitsu magazine unveiled a new 3DS and Wii game by Yuji Naka and Prope: Machinist of the Sky Rodea, published by Kadokawa Games. Machinist is an anime-style flight game in which you control a character's flight by pointing (with the Wii remote, at least) and shaking, then pressing B in mid-air to fly in different directions. The A button fires projectiles or launches spinning attacks (more)

Kisai Console is a Refugee from Star Trek

Thursday, January 20, 2011 7:40:53 AM GMT
When it comes to creating watches that defy all common sense, you know you can count on Tokyoflash Japan. Of course, it's hard to keep up with the madness, so they opened a blog for budding designers to submit their own nightmares for consideration. The latest logic-warping wristwatch to graduate from this blog is the Kisai Console. (more)

Yuji Naka has said in the past that his upcoming flight-focused game, Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea, is the game is he "might" have made into a sequel to NiGHTS. As a huge fan of the NiGHTS series, I'm all squeaky with joy over the game's mere existence. (more)

Rumor: Monster Hunter headed to 3DS

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2422 days, 2 hours, 8 minutes ago
Monday, January 03, 2011 9:57:50 AM GMT
If you're the incorrigable Tony Ponce, you're sarcastically "putting on your surprise face" right now. For the rest of us, this could be big news. The Monster Hunter series has long been exclusive to the PSP when it comes to the portable gaming world, which is part of why the PSP is so popular in Japan. If this rumor is to believed, then that exclusivity is about to end, which is great news for Nintendo, and terrible news for Sony. (more)

World disappoints us once again: Japan loses 2022 3D holographic World Cup bid

Sunday, December 05, 2010 11:26:40 AM GMT
Look, we don't know anything about World Cup bids. They probably have a lot to do with "infrastructure" and "taking turns" and stuff like that. But really, world? You couldn't pick Japan just this once? Japan's incredibly great 2022 World Cup bid involved projecting 3D holograms of the games live onto soccer football fields around the world, allowing folks that can't make it to Japan (more)

Kinect sells 26,000 in Japanese launch weekend

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2457 days, 2 hours, 57 minutes ago
Monday, November 29, 2010 9:08:54 AM GMT
Kinect had what most people would call a successful launch, moving over one million units worldwide during its first week on store shelves; however, the device wasn't met with quite as warm a reception in Japan. According to Media Create, Microsoft's new all-seeing eye had a "quiet start" in the region, moving just 26,000 units during its launch weekend of November 20 -- that includes both standalone and 360-bundled Kinects.

Touchscreen phones get psuedo-buttons with Tactile Plus stickers

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 7:31:09 AM GMT
It's difficult to execute a Hadouken -- or any special maneuver, for that matter -- on the iPhone version of Street Fighter IV without keeping a constant eye on the on-screen controls. It's a problem that many games on touchscreened smartphones suffer from; fortunately, it's a problem that can be solved with a little outside the box thinking. Why not just add some buttons to your phone using the reusable Tactile+Plus sticker set pictured above? (more)

Titanium Blue PS3 Hitting Japan This Month

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 9:30:07 AM GMT
What you see here is the titanium blue PS3 that's set to hit Japan on November 25. Part of a Gran Turismo 5 bundle, there's no word on whether or not American gamers will get a chance to purchase one of these colorful consoles. We wouldn't be surprised if, as with many colored versions of popular electronics, it's a limited edition and only available to Japanese customers. (more)

Taiko Drum Master Wii adds four-player support, party games

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2492 days, 9 hours, 55 minutes ago
Monday, October 25, 2010 2:11:24 AM GMT
For some, the sound of one person banging on a plastic drum peripheral just isn't enough. Two? Not gonna cut it. Now four, that might get the decibel level high enough. Good thing, then, that Namco Bandai's next Taiko Drum Master game for Wii, Taiko Drum Master Wii: Everyone Party, will let four players cooperate and compete simultaneously when it launches in Japan on December 2.
