While Paris Games Week is not as big of a deal as gamescom or E3, it’s still a nice convention that you should definitely check out if you can. However, if you’re attending this year, don’t expect to see Nintendo there as well. The company confirmed to that they would not be attending Paris Games Week 2016, which takes place from October 27th to October 31st, because it “did not fit their annual plan”.


Over the past few days, the e-Capcom Twitter account has been rolling out photos of the first wave of Monster Hunter amiibo. Along with the figures themselves, we’re also able to see which boxes they come in. Have a look at the various images below.


These days, it’s easy to associate Sonic with Nintendo. The character has appeared in Olympics games with Mario, and SEGA even partnered with the big N on some exclusive games. During the early ’90s, however, things were much different as Mario and Sonic were pretty big rivals.

Game Informer put up a new piece today about how Sonic eventually landed on Nintendo platforms following SEGA’s exit from the gaming hardware business. It contains some interesting quotes from the likes of creator Yuji Naka, Sonic developer Takashi Iizuka, and even Shigeru Miyamoto.

Read up on some noteworthy comments below. You can find Game Informer’s article here for more.

In a recent issue of Famitsu, the magazine posted the results of a recent survey conducted. 893 people participated, and were asked to vote on their favorite game developer.

Update: Choice Provisions has confirmed that Charles Martinet will be returning to lend his voice to Runner3.

Original: Choice Provisions has announced Runner3, the next game in the Bit.Trip Runner series.

A notice posted on the project’s new site reads:

Runner3 is the upcoming (and perhaps unsurprisingly) third entry in the BIT.TRIP RUNNER series. We’re committed to making it the best game we’ve ever made, and we want you to hold us to it. You can follow the game’s development over on our devlog, where we encourage you to chat with us in the comments section of our weekly updates.

We plan to be very open with you about the creation of Runner3, and we even plan to solicit feedback occasionally and offer user polls to give everyone a chance to chime in and help us think of things like level names, possible unlockable outfits, and more.

Let’s work together to make Runner3 the best game it can be!

We also have the following teaser:

That’s all for now. Runner3 is due out next year, so there’s plenty of time to share information about the game. I’d say it’s likely that we’ll be seeing it on a Nintendo platform, though nothing is confirmed at the moment.

Bit.Trip Runner started out on WiiWare, and eventually headed to other platforms including 3DS as part of the Bit.Trip Saga. Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien was then released on Wii U and other platforms in 2013.
