SUNFLEX EUROPE GmbH LAUNCHES NEW NINTENDO DSiTM ACCESSORIES RANGE
Snakebyte DSi range available now
ISERLOHN, GERMANY (March 3rd, 2009) – Sunflex Europe GmbH, an independent premier video game peripheral and accessories manufacturer, today announced that the Snakebyte™ accessories range for the Nintendo DSi™ and DS™ lite is now available to retailers in the United Kingdom. The range includes a range of accessories from a Silicon Case, to a Carry Bag and a robust Extendable Metal Stylus.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of our latest Snakebyte product range,” said Mike Steup, Managing Director of Sunflex Europe, “With its well crafted and ergonomically designed accessories for the DSi and DS lite, the range has something for everyone whether young or old for what will be the first must have gadget of 2009.”
“Get your friends together and grab your Wii Wheel (TM) accessories for action-packed raucous racing. ExciteBots: Trick Racing takes the big-air thrills and simple controls of Excite Truck (TM) and ramps up the fun with a non-stop barrage of funky challenges and mini-games performed at blinding speed. You won’t believe your eyes when you find yourself shooting goals, throwing pies and even playing poker in the middle of racing robotic animals and insects around off-road tracks.” – Retail description
I’m really not sold on the minigames aspect of Excitebots. Aren’t there enough games on Wii that feature minigames?!
“If Little King’s Story turns out to be a big hit and if I can get everyone together again then maybe we will consider it. At the moment I can’t say whether we will or not because we are concentrating on getting this one finished. I can say that we have never considered making a series out of Little King’s Story, we only thought about getting together and making a good game. Let’s wait and see.” – Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada
I’ve really liked what I have been able to see thus far of Little King’s Story. If the first game is successful, I see no reason as to why a sequel couldn’t be created.

Werehog from Sonic Unleashed will return says Black Knight director
Posted 8 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 5 Comments
“For the improvements, I can’t think of anything right now off the top of my head. If I think of any ideas then Sonic Unleashed 2 will be the time for that, so I don’t really have an answer for that. But you will see the Werehog again. I like Secret Rings very much, but when it came to making this title [Sonic and the Black Knight] we chose to do something different. All the good things about Secret Rings belong to that specific game. So in the same way, unless we’re going to make Sonic Unleashed 2 you might not see him again. But if we are going to make it, you might see him again. It’s a possibility.” – Sonic and the Black Knight director Tetsu Katano
I hope I’m not the only one that believes bringing back the werehog is an absolutely terrible idea. If anything, the werehog was criticized more than anything else in Unleashed.
