The next closest film was Big Hero 6, which pulled in $5.4 million (¥642 million). Despite being shown on only 408 screens, Youkai Watch doubled up on Disney’s movie (shown at 540 locations).

In the latest issue of Famitsu, a slew of Japanese developers spoke about their ambitions as we head into 2015. We’ve rounded up some of the responses below. Not all are confirmed to be Nintendo-related, but we’re including the ones that may have some relation to the company.

Tomonobu Itagaki (Valhalla Game Studios) – Itagaki alludes to 2015 being the year he sets off a big, brand new bomb, which is surely alluding to Devil’s Third.
Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Capcom) – In 2015, he has a number of titles both to be announced and to be released.
Tsuji Bonbon (Capcom) – The 11th year of the Monster Hunter series will be a new start.
Ichiro Hazama (Square Enix) – Working really hard on another game that’s proving arduous to make.
Kotaro Uchikoshi (Spike Chunsoft) – Has lots of things brewing that will be exploding onto the scene. Will be continuing along on some things and will have stuff to announce down the line.
Yuichiro Saito (Spike Chunsoft) – Has a few unannounced titles.
Makoto Osaki (Sega) – “We have unannounced titles in development.”
Masaaki Hoshino (Bandai Namco) – More information on Pokken is coming soon.
Hideki Kamiya (Platinum Games) – The Takarazuka opera should be hot in 2015.”(2015年も宝塚(歌劇)は熱い)
Yusuke Hashimoto (Platinum Games) – New projects are underway.
Kenichiro Takaki (Marvelous) – Might have several non-Kaura original new game announcements.
Akihiro Hino (Level-5) – There are plans to start a new big project.
Jiro Ishii – I’ll be able to announce a number of titles in 2015.



Cancelled Toys “R” Us amiibo pre-orders involving PayPal or gift cards not automatically reinstated, but can be reordered

Toys “R” Us started sending out emails yesterday about amiibo pre-orders that were accidentally cancelled due to an internal error. You likely received one of two messages. The first one states that your order (or orders) was automatically reinstated. We’re also now aware of a second that informs consumers that their pre-order couldn’t be reinstated, but the items can be re-ordered.

So what’s the difference? Toys “R” Us has explained that those who paid with PayPal or gift cards couldn’t have their orders return automatically. Still, the retailer will soon send out instructions about how they can reorder their item.

The difference is in fact due to the form of payment. If paid through PayPal or gift card it is not possible to automatically reinstate an order. However, as mentioned, all customers will receive communication with instructions on if they need to and how to reorder their item.

Late last week, Toys “R” Us cancelled a slew of amiibo pre-orders. We later learned that the issues came about due to an error within the retailer’s system, and the company was working on bringing back reservations.

Emails going out today confirm that Toys “R” Us is working on reinstating pre-orders. Keep track of future updates from the retailer. Here’s hoping any figures pre-ordered that were wrongly cancelled will be successfully restored.
