Vicarious Visions considered Princess Peach, Kirby, Star Fox for Skylanders SuperChargers

Donkey Kong and Bowser are both included in Skylanders SuperChargers. But interestingly enough, a few other Nintendo characters were considered for the game.

One idea developer Vicarious Visions had was to make a Warrior Princess Peach with a sword. However, Nintendo didn’t approve the idea because that would have been out of character, and all Super Mario Bros. hero characters were off limits.

Kirby was also considered to be a potential character in Skylanders SuperChargers. He would have been able to suck up enemies and bounce around the screen. Since Kirby is partially owned by HAL Laboratory, he couldn’t be licensed out to Activision.

Star Fox was yet another Nintendo character that Vicarious Visions thought about including. He didn’t make it in, however – perhaps so that the Big N could keep the focus on its own title, Star Fox Zero.

Skylanders SuperChargers and its Skylanders SuperChargers Racing equivalent for 3DS and Wii will release on September 20. You’ll find development details about Bowser and Donkey Kong in the game below.

The Great Ace Attorney – final DLC out now in Japan, message from Shu Takumi teases possible sequel

There’s been lots of Ace Attorney-related news lately since the next mainline game was announced this week. However, the latest spin-off title, The Great Ace Attorney, is still trucking along in Japan. Today marks the release of its eighth and final round of DLC. The eighth issue of Randst Magazine contains the following:

– a short episode with Sherlock Holmes on trial
– Nintendo 3DS Theme featuring Kazuma Asougi
– concept-art for the characters Episode 3 and 5
– Behind the Scenes video for the game’s sound effects
– beta music for Naruhodou Ryuunosuke

The most interesting thing about it, however, is that it also includes this message from Shu Takumi, basically the creator of the whole Ace Attorney franchise:

great ace attorney shu takumi 2

“London, at the turn of the 20th century…
I hope you enjoyed your great turnabout voyage.
The team is looking forward to the day we can meet you again in Ryuunosuke’s next adventure.”

(all credit to Court-Records for the translation)

Does this mean a sequel to The Great Ace Attorney is in the works? We don’t know for sure, but it’s definitely a possibility. Sadly, a Western release for a possible sequel seems pretty unlikely, given that Capcom seems to have no plans to localize the first one.
