Hideki Kamiya wants to make a true Okami sequel, Viewtiful Joe remake, and more

In the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, PlatinumGames game designer and director Hideki Kamiya spoke about the sorts of projects he’d be interested in working on in the future. Kamiya cited a “true Okami sequel” and a Viewtiful Joe remake as just a couple of things he’d love to pursue.
“I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it’s okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me!”
Capcom needs to find a way to get Kamiya and PlatinumGames involved with a new Okami game. Okamiden was nice for what it was, but a true sequel as Kamiya suggested would be a dream come true. And while we’re at it, we seriously need Okami HD on Switch, Capcom…
The Pokemon Company launches “Project Eevee” Twitter account, teases “something” for tomorrow

The Pokemon Company has launched a new Twitter account seemingly centered on a new project of some kind – Project Eevee. At the moment, we know pretty much nothing about what this is. So far, the account has only made a single tweet, teasing “the start of something” for tomorrow, November 21st, at 9 PM JST. It’s worth noting that this account is in Japanese and so far, only the Japanese Pokemon Twitter account follows it, so whatever Project Eevee is, it may just be a minor, Japan-only thing (for now). Either way, we will keep you updated.
Former Sony exec reflects on original talks with Nintendo for cancelled SNES PlayStation

Not too long ago, Polygon was able to speak with Shigeo Maruyama. Maruyama was previously the chairman of Sony Computer Entertainment and the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment. He was present way back in the day when negotiations were taking place with Nintendo about working on a gaming system together.
As we know, Nintendo and Sony’s partnership wasn’t meant to be. Nintendo went in its own direction, as did Sony. Maruyama reflected on those initial conversations with Nintendo in a recent interview with Polygod, in which he stated:
[Let’s Talk] What would you want out of an animated Mario movie?
Posted on 2 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Let's Talk | 25 Comments | 0 Likes
The Wall Street Journal reported this week that a new animated Mario movie is on the way. Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind the Despicable Me and Minions films, has been apparently pegged to work on Nintendo’s project. It’s far from an announcement, but The Wall Street Journal tends to be accurate with these kinds of reports.
Just the thought of any new Mario movie may strike fear into the hearts of dedicated Nintendo fans. There was a Super Mario Bros. movie way back in 1996, though many would say that it was downright terrible. If Nintendo is making a new Mario movie, you still have reason to be cautious. However, there would be a couple of things going for it.
First, Shigeru Miyamoto should be on board. The Wall Street Journal said that Miyamoto was pushing for a producer role. The fact that it would be animated also helps big time. Live action doesn’t make much sense for Mario, but animation is much more appropriate.
So let’s just say that this movie is in fact happening. Is there anything in particular you’d like to see from it? What about things you’d like to see Illumination Entertainment and Nintendo avoid? Let us know in the comments below.

Reggie: Nintendo working on SNES Classic Edition supply, no plans to discount Switch
Posted on 4 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News, Switch | 20 Comments | 0 Likes
The Super NES Classic Edition has been in much better supply compared to its predecessor, the original NES Classic Edition. However, that doesn’t mean units are readily available. Many consumers are still having trouble finding the hardware in stores.
Thankfully, as we know, Nintendo is handling the situation with the SNES Classic Edition fairly well. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told The Washington Post that the company is working to have a regular supply for the rest of the year. This also applies to Switch as well.
