This is some pretty sad news. On March 1st, CING filed for bankruptcy having suffered liabilities totaling 256 million yen. The company developed titles for Nintendo platforms since 2005 and created games such as Hotel Dusk, Another Code, and most recently, Little King’s Story. Last Window, CING’s latest project, was released in Japan in January, but failed to light up the sales charts. Unfortunately for CING, poor sales was a common occurrence for most of their products.

While it looks as though Famitsu’s mystery reveal has been solved, a different Japanese magazine has an announcement of their own on the horizon. The next issue of Jump will feature the first details of a new title in an established game series. Jump stated in its teaser that “you definitely won’t want to miss this”. Although it’s possible that the magazine will reveal a new Tales or Square Enix project, no one really knows for sure at this point. If it’s Nintendo-related, we’ll have some news about the game in a week’s time.

This is pretty neat and something that most Nintendo fans probably aren’t aware of. There’s a small music nugget that comes from the results screen in Mario Kart 64. After about fifty minutes, a different type of loop will play for a minute and a half or so. After that, the music will return to normal. Take a look at the video below to see for yourself!

Why Nintendo would change up the music after fifty minutes is beyond me. But this a nice little secret that Nintendo fans may appreciate!

“I would have loved to have started making small games. When I was younger I was thinking, how come the team has to be so big to make one game? So it’s really good to have a small team and people can put forward their own ideas into the game. It’s like for a music artist, they can just put out their single right away, not wait to do the full album. It’s like that, so it’s a really helpful industry. I’m jealous actually.” – Goichi Suda

I can definitely see where he’s coming from with this one. If you’re a small developer, you have a lot more freedom to do what you want without the hassle of having to deal with publishers.

SAN FRANCISCO – March 4, 2010 – Today Ubisoft announces the creation of Shaun White Skateboarding, a video game in development with dual-sport professional athlete and two-time Olympic gold medalist, Shaun White. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Shaun White Skateboarding will arrive this holiday 2010.

As the first skateboarding game in the best-selling Shaun White video game franchise, Shaun White Skateboarding will provide an innovative twist and fresh take on the skateboarding and action-sports genre.

Today, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix announced Lara Croft and the Guardian of Life. The press release, however, did not state which platforms the game is in development for. The only detail shared is that it “will be released via digital download in 2010.” As we know, Nintendo has their own downloadable services in WiiWare and DSiWare. I don’t really expect the game to land on DSiWare, but WiiWare seems like a more realistic possibility. Information about the title will be revealed soon, but we’ll have to see if Lara Croft and the Guardian of Life ends up on the Wii or DS.
