At last, the teenage turtles and Rabbids can fight in the same arena. A demo of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up, which was present at this year’s Japan Expo in France, confirms that at least two variations of the Rabbids will be playable in the game. This isn’t the biggest surprise in the world considering that the Rabbids have become an IP for Ubisoft, but some will probably feel that the little beasts serve as a nice addition. While a typical Rabbid can be selected, there was also some sort of Sam Fisher-like Rabbid as well.

“We have a lot of gameplay situations, enemies and powers that are still in the drawing board! Hopefully those will see the light in the next chapters of NyxQuest. First we want to see how well the game is received by the players.” – Over the Top’s Roberto Alvarez de Lara
North America has yet to see the release of NyxQuest as of yet, but I’m anticipating the game’s arrival. Hopefully the game will be as good as some have claimed it to be. If it turns out to be a decent WiiWare title, I’d be up for a sequel for sure.

Ueda “expected a little more” out of Super Mario Galaxy
Posted 8 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 4 Comments
Shadow of the Colossus and Ico director Fumito Ueda was interviewed in a recent edition of Level magazine. In the interview, one subject discussed is Ueda’s opinion on Super Mario Galaxy. Apparently there is one level in the game that some members of the press and even fans claimed had borrowed from Shadow of the Colossus. However, Ueda believes that too big a deal was made out of it. Speaking about Mario Galaxy in general though, he thinks that the title “wasn’t as entertaining as it could have been” and that he “expected a little more.”
“Of course I have played it, I couldn’t resist after hearing that Miyamoto-san was inspired by me. But I have to say that I had expected a little more. That particular level (and the rest of the game) wasn’t as entertaining as it could have been. I think the press and the fans made too much of a fuss about him (Miyamoto) borrowing from me. And the atmosphere on the internet became a little heavy. What I’m critical against isn’t the fact that they borrowed something that actually isn’t even originally from me, but the fact that they didn’t make anything more interesting out of it.”
