Last July, Akira Himekawa teased a new entry in the Zelda manga series. There were plans to have it out last year, but strangely, nothing ever materialized. A concrete update was finally shared today.
A new Twilight Princess manga will begin and published at Shogakukan’s manga app Manga One. They would’ve liked to announce the title during last year’s tease, but there were many states of affairs, which is why they could only announce it today.

Former Ubisoft dev on porting Assassin’s Creed III to Wii U, making Prince of Persia for Wii
Maxime Beaudoin worked at Ubisoft for several years as a technical architect. Last year, he left the company and founded his own studio. Beaudoin thought it would make sense to look back at his time at Ubisoft in a personal blog post.
One interesting part of the piece has Beaudoin speaking about porting Assassin’s Creed III to Wii U. It was no easy task due to the technical challenges involved, but in the end, the team managed to get it done.
After PoP, I contributed on several games here and there, and eventually landed on a technically very challenging project: porting Assassin’s Creed 3 on the WiiU. This was very different from my previous work. The team was super small: we were 2 programmers at the beginning, and at the peak I think we were like 15 or something.

Fire Emblem 25th anniversary book shows unreleased Wii game
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
Earlier this month, a scan appeared from the Fire Emblem 25th anniversary book showing an in-development photo of what was thought to be Radiant Dawn. Fresh information has since surfaced indicating that this was to be an entirely new title/experiment all together.
This mystery game was in development for Wii after Radiant Dawn had shipped. However, due to poor sales stemming from previous console entries, Nintendo and interior staff were trying to create “something new” and appeal to the broader audience brought in by the Wii and DS.
