The image above comes from a classification on Korea’s RRA website. At the moment, it’s unclear as to what the listing pertains to.

The unknown Nintendo device is described as a “portable video player” and features the model name WIS-009. I won’t even try to speculate about this, as it could turn out to be nothing at all. We’ll keep the post updated with additional news (if there is any).

Ubisoft is rumored to be making a new 2D Prince of Persia game built with the UbiArt Framework engine – the same tech used in the creation of Rayman Legends and Child of Light.

French website Le Portail du Jeu Video claims that the title utilizes “the same techniques of animation [as used] in the last Rayman” and has the Prince’s body “divided into several parts (torso, pelvis, leg, shin, foot, forearm, hands, etc..) that can be animated independently of each other.”

The site goes on to say, “This provides a real diversity / credibility in the postures and movements of the hero…. The quality of the work is to believe [it is] 3D modelling [with] transitions [that are] are fluid and feel well made.”

Officially, Ubisoft has said that the publisher “does not comment on rumours or speculation”.

Will Diddy Kong be in Mario Kart 8?

Might Diddy Kong be included on the roster for Mario Kart 8?

The Spanish edition of ONM has posted a preview shot from its latest issue featuring the upcoming racer. You’ll notice that Diddy Kong is clearly shown among Mario Kart 8′s characters.

I wouldn’t say this officially confirms Diddy Kong’s appearance in Mario Kart 8. Still, it’s interesting that he’s included in ONM’s preview. Could the magazine have made a mistake? We’re just a little more than a month away from Mario Kart 8′s launch, so it shouldn’t be too long before we find out if this is the real deal.

Rumor: Voice actor suggests Raiden appearance in the new Smash Bros.

Update: Debunked. The quote now reads:

“Let me think about that. Well the Metal Gear series is always coming in and out of my ‘field’. We have put bids out on it a couple of times. Raiden was always a character that I had wanted to play. I did end up playing him on PlayStation All-Stars (*amended at the request of Mr.Langdon); so I actually did kind of end up playing him eventually (* Amended- Reuben here is referring to playing Raiden in Mocap- not as a voice actor). But NOT to the extent that he exists in the other games.”

Original: I’m only going to mention this in passing – at least for now – since this may be a misunderstanding or plain confusion. But as the title reads, there’s talk of Raiden playing some sort of role in the new Smash Bros.

When asked in a recent interview about a franchise he’d like to appear in, voice actor Reuben Langdon said:

Let me think about that. Well the Metal Gear series is always coming in and out of my ‘field’. We have put bids out on it a couple of times. Raiden was always a character that I had wanted to play. I did end up playing him on Super Smash Bros; so I did end up playing him eventually. NOT to the extent that he is in the other games.

Langdon’s comments have led to speculation that Raiden will be in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be playable though, nor does it exactly confirm Snake’s appearance. I’d personally advise taking all of this with a grain of salt until we have some sort of clarification.
