Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 demo unlocks Reactor item in Dragon Quest X
Square Enix has made the Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 demo official. It’ll be released in Japan early next month.
Those who play the demo can receive an original item in the form of the Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 protagonist’s “Reactor” that can be worn in Dragon Quest X. The Dragon Quest X: Boukensha no Odekake Chou Benri Tool for 3DS will be required for this. As for the campaign, it will begin in mid-March.
Sakurai considered Geno for Smash Bros.
There’s a pretty big interview with Masahiro Sakurai in this month’s issue of Nintendo Dream. We already covered quite a bit of it earlier today, but there’s additional news emerging from the magazine as well.
As spotted by Source Gaming, Sakurai states that he wanted Geno to be a playable fighter in Brawl, and apparently Wii U/3DS as well. He also acknowledged that Geno is popular, especially when talking about old characters.
We did end up with a Geno costume in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Obviously that’s very different from a playable fighter, however. Maybe we’ll see him in the franchise’s next entry?
Zelda: Twilight Princess – features trailer comparison
A new video comparing the HD and non-HD versions of Twilight Princess has been posted from Gamexplain, this time focusing on the recent “Features” trailer. This video only shows the sections of the game that are in both versions, as the official trailer is partially devoted to new features such as amiibo and Hero Mode. The comparison can be seen below:
Retailer says new Nintendo Selects are coming on March 11
A new wave of Nintendo Selects will hit North American retailers on March 11, according to Video Games Plus. The lineup includes several Wii U/3DS titles, and surprisingly, some old Wii releases as well. Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and Super Mario All-Stars are just some of the included games.
For those that are unfamiliar, Nintendo Selects typically bring about lower prices for games. It looks like some older ones will be seeing reprints as well – notably Pikmin 3 and Super Mario All-Stars.
Video Games Plus lists each new Nintendo Select at $29.99 CDN. That should amount to $20 USD.

Nintendo has not yet officially announced this new batch of Nintendo Selects. Presumably though, we should be getting an announcement soon.

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.
