Is Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind seeing localization? That does seem to be the case based on a new rating from Australia.

“Attack on Titan” was recently rated, with Atlus listed as publisher. We know that the rating pertains to The Last Wings of Mankind since Spike Chunsoft is included in the rating.

Atlus hasn’t officially announced Attack on Titan for the west. Perhaps that will change soon…

Persona Q artist on the game’s style

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth employs a very unique art style compared to other games in the Persona franchise.

Atlus went for a “super-deformed art style” due to its connections to Etrian Odyssey. There’s also the fact that the 3DS’ screen is a bit on the small size.

Artist Shigenori Soejima explained to USGamer:

“There are two big reasons for the super-deformed art style. One being that, because this is a crossover with Etrian, which has always had that style, we wanted to keep that iconic look so that when people saw it they’d know, ‘Oh, this is similar to Etrian Odyssey.’ If it were in the regular-looking Persona style, especially on 3DS, people might be confused and wonder, ‘Is this a new Persona game, a new Etrian title?'”

“Secondly, on the 3DS, the screen is much smaller. My usual type of character designs… trying to squeeze them onto a tiny screen just wouldn’t look good. In order for my characters to shine, basically we had to scale them down.”

A few interesting words from Nintendo’s former handheld designer

Satoru Okada was a pretty important figure at Nintendo. He played a big role in the creation of the company’s earliest handheld systems, which continued until his retirement back in 2012.

Okada was recently interviewed by the Japanese publication “Shooting Gameside”. Here are a few of the more interesting excerpt that specifically pertains to Nintendo:

—Since you’ve participated in the creation of so many different handheld gaming consoles, I was thinking you’d be more particular and high-strung. But in fact you’re very open and relaxed.

Okada: The first thing I made using a computer was the Game and Watch series. After that handheld gaming consoles became the main focus of my work at Nintendo. Speaking of being particular, you know, I didn’t originally apply to Nintendo with any special ambitions or designs. Originally my friend was supposed to have taken the company’s entrance test, but due to circumstances he couldn’t make it out. In his place I was chosen to take the test. When I say “in his place”, though, I don’t mean that I was a mere susbtitute; I was given the chance as part of a job-search program at my school. I knew if I took it lightly that it would damage the reputation of my school, and I couldn’t allow that. Still, I didn’t really know what I was doing, so I ended up being late to that test, but thanks to the kindness of the test administrator, I was allowed to take it anyway.

Nintendo’s entrance exam had a section where you had to actually engineer something. You were given a design and had to make a model of it using small metal pieces. Since I had spent so much time in Junior High doing those electrical engineering projects, it was an easy task for me. As a result, rumour got around at Nintendo that “someone good at soldering has joined!” It seemed I was the first person to join Nintendo with any electrical engineering abilities, a fact which would turn out to be a huge investment in my future.

Buy Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker from Nintendo UK store, get a keychain

Those who purchase Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker from the Nintendo UK store will receive a special gift. Orders will come with a keychain featuring Toad himself. Since Nintendo doesn’t explicitly say “pre-order” in its tweet, I assume that some consumers will be able to nab the keychain if they purchase Captain Toad after launch as well.
