Game Informer recently spoke with Mark Pacini from Armature Studio. Although some of the discussion touched on Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate and his new game ReCore, he also spoke quite a bit about his days at Retro and directing Metroid Prime.

One interesting anedcote was about when Retro was meeting with Shigeru Miyamoto and other folks from Nintendo’s main headquarters in Japan. After the meeting, Pacini’s boss said that they were upset with him. Why? Pacini didn’t have a pencil and paper at the meeting, so Nintendo felt he wasn’t listening. Pacini called it a “very noobie mistake” on his part, and wanted to make sure that wouldn’t happen again.

Making Metroid Prime was the toughest project for Pacini from a development standpoint and getting it completed. “I think it was just the amount of stuff we were trying to do in the time we were doing it,” he said.

A new video from Liam Robertson, Unseen64, and Did You Know Gaming? provides us with a look at a few Star Wars games that never saw the day of light. The different projects were slated for Nintendo platforms, including one for Wii that would have taken advantage of the MotionPlus accessory in an additional mode. Watch the full video below.

Mark Pacini acted as director for Nintendo and Retro’s three Metroid Prime games. Then in 2008, he went on to co-found Armature Studio.

Pacini is now directing the Xbox One title ReCore – a game that actually takes a decent amount of inspiration from the Metroid Prime series. GamesBeat took a brief trip down memory lane with Pacini while interviewing him about his new game, and asked if he’s surprised by the longevity and how people still play the titles he made back with Retro.

He said in response:

“For sure. I was thankful to be part of the team that made those games. When we were making those, that was never one of our goals. We were just trying to make something cool. It was an unexpectedly great thing, that people started to do that. It’s awesome that people are still playing those games, but it’s a big surprise to us.”

After originally launching for the Xbox in late 2001, EA and Pseudo Interactive’s Cel Damage came to the GameCube a few months later. Its reception was a bit mixed, but the developer hoped to create a sequel that would build on the original while taking feedback into account.

Unseen64 and Liam Robertson take a look at what Pseudo Interactive had in store for Cel Damage 2 in the video below. Ultimately, the project never picked up steam as it was unable to secure a publisher. EA, who handled the original, wasn’t interested – nor was SEGA, Ubisoft, or Midway.

Update: As a bit of an aside, Fire Emblem 0 series 6 is due out on September 29 in Japan.


Two new Fire Emblem art books were announced for Japan during a Fire Emblem 0 live stream today.

In Japan, a Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance art book is due out on July 29. Amazon Japan has it up here for 3,456 yen.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn will also be getting an art book at some point. There’s no pre-order link just yet.
