Sony Pictures Entertainment’s upcoming film “Pixels” will feature classic video game characters such as Donkey Kong and Pac-Man, the company announced today. The movie, which stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, and Brian Cox, is slated for May 15, 2015.

For those who haven’t heard of Pixels previously, below is a quick overview of the film:

In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Dinklage and Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Monaghan plays the team’s unique weapons specialist.

And here’s the listing of companies with classic arcade games that are teaming with Sony Pictures on Pixels:

• Atari Interactive: (Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede and Missile Command)
• Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. (Frogger)
• BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. (PAC-MAN, Galaga, and Dig Dug)
• Nintendo (Donkey Kong)
• Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. (Q*bert)
• Taito Corporation (Space Invaders)
• Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (Joust, Defender, Robotron and Wizard of Wor)

Those attending San Diego Comic-Con 2014 this week will have the opportunity to engage with many of these classic original arcade games and try them out again as the studio features a Pixels Electric Dreams Factory arcade at the Hard Rock Hotel, 209 5th Ave., San Diego.


Mighty No. 9: The Animated Series details

Mighty No. 9: The Animated Series was announced at Anime Expo 2014 this month with a teaser but not much else. Speaking with Polygon, Digital Frontier’s Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour shared a little more about what we can expect.

Osei-Kuffour told Polygon:

“That being said, there are parts of the Mighty No.9 universe that simply can’t be explored in the game. For instance, what does Beck do outside of his battles? How does he feel about the pressure on him to be the hero? What mistakes has he made as the hero? With this cartoon, we are trying to add to the Mighty No. 9 universe by filling in the parts gamers can’t see in the game.”

Other bits about the show include:

- Won’t follow the game’s plot completely
- Will adapt it to incorporate elements that make it comfortable for an episodic show
- Some of the main cast’s character traits have been “revisited”
- This will allow for more interesting, varied stories
- The “essence” of each character will be close to that of their game counterpart
- The cartoon gives companions such as Beck’s assistant Call their own time to shine
- The robotic girl, who has “no emotion at all,” will constantly and playfully clash with Beck
- Beck feels human emotions and is very excitable
- The cartoon will further explore their relationship in addition to how the pair get along with two other game characters, Dr. White and Dr. Sanda
- Much of the show will focus on Beck learning to manage his emotions and function as a Mighty Number
- Beck doesn’t want to save the world and his “human heart” makes him an anxious combatant and a clumsy fighter
- Action-packed show that hopes to glean laughs from both children and adults
- It bears Inafune’s stamp of approval as well as a ton of wiggle room for players to get to know the characters on a deeper level

The Nintendo Treehouse has been around for plenty of years, and is one of the main reasons why games are localized from the Big N these days. But there are plenty of different departments inside such as the marketing support team and brand management/Pokemon team.

Bill Trinen, Nintendo of America’s director of product marketing, recently spoke with Siliconera about the different divisions at Nintendo Treehouse as well as the team as a whole. He also discussed his origins with the company and shared a tiny bit about Shigeru Miyamoto.

Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto dished on his impression of western players – primarily in America – as part of an interview with Siliconera.

Tsujimoto said that the original assumption was that they’d have a more aggressive playstyle. However, he learned that this wasn’t actually so and they were more careful like Japanese players.

Here’s Tsujimoto’s comments in full:
