Dumpster Dive! heading to Wii U and 3DS
Back in 2013, Temple of Yog developer CHUDCHUD Industries made Dumpster Dive! for mobile platforms. In the studio’s own words, the game “is an endless runner through garbage, a trash surfing, food-fetching simulator.”
Dumpster Dive! is now planned for both Wii U and 3DS. CHUDCHUD Industries’ Cody Diefenthaler shared the news in a brief Twitter message, which you can find below. You can also see the original trailer in the attached tweet.

Splatoon producer on pre-launch jitters, possibility of a sequel
Posted on 5 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U | 14 Comments | 0 Likes
GamesMaster spoke with Splatoon producer Hisashi Nogami in its latest issue for a brief interview. At one point, Nogami reflected on how there were some jitters within the team before launch, as they weren’t sure how the multiplayer-focused game would be received.
Nogami told the magazine:
“We’ve dealt with online multiplayer in a number of titles up until now, but this was the first time we’d taken up the challenge of releasing a package game where multiplayer was the main mode. We were not 100 percent sure about how a few sections would be received, and so we’re really happy to see them being well received not only by experienced online gamers, but by a really broad range of players including children and female players too; it’s a real confidence boost. If we have the chance in the future, I’d like to build on online gameplay even more.”
GamesMaster followed those comments by pressing Nogami on the possibility of Splatoon 2 happening one day. When asked, he responded with the following:
“We want to raise this new IP with care, so maybe we’ll get a chance to make it happen if players support us.”
Splatoon updates technically ended last month. But at the Splatoon Koshien 2016 finals a couple of weeks ago, Nogami hinted at possible new content for the shooter.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate producer – factors behind western success, lengthy localization
Posted on 17 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 10 Comments | 0 Likes
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is the franchise’s most successful entry in the west. How did that happen exactly? In an interview with GamesBeat, series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto touched on some of the factors that led the game to become a hit in North America and Europe.
Localization changes helped lead Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate to overseas success. But even more importantly, Fujioka says online play “was huge”.
Fujioka told GamesBeat:
“… More than anything the addition of online play on the 3DS was huge. Obviously in Europe and North America it’s very difficult to play with others locally due to everyone being so spread out, so having online multiplayer in the game really showed the appeal of Monster Hunter’s multiplayer to a wide range of players.”
“Given that Japan is a small island country, there are more opportunities for people to meet directly, so the barrier for local play is low enough that lots of people can take advantage of it. This time around, especially outside of Japan we had a lot of people asking for online multiplayer, which of course was a big thing for players.”
