“Given that both titles continue to perform well, there are no plans for any more titles in the series.” – Dawn Paine, Nintendo UK Marketing Director

Brain Age was one of the first Touch Generations titles to release for the Nintendo DS, yet the game still sells at a respectable amount each week. The same goes with Brain Age 2. However, if there is an extreme demand for Brain Age titles, I’m sure the “franchise” could be resurrected in the future. For now, enjoy Dr. Kawashima’s glowing face!

TITLE: Mushroom Men – Rise of the Fungi
PLATFORM: DS
DEVELOPER: Red Fly Studio
GENRE: Action Adventure
RELEASE DATE: October 2008

An ichorous green meteor plummets through the Earth’s atmosphere, fracturing and showering the earth with glowing green space dust that affects all forms of life nearby. Some plant life – mushrooms and cacti – acquire sentience while, the meteor twists and mutates other life forms, transforming insects and animals into semi-intelligent, warlike communities.

The story of Mushroom Men is told in Acts, each Act occurring in a completely unique environment. Each version of the game (DS and Wii) tells different portions of the history of the Mushroom Men universe. The DS and Wii versions are completely different stories from one-another. The DS version, Mushroom Men – Rise of the Fungi, is the first release and shows the development of the Mushroom nations, starting very early in Mushroom Men history. The early days of the Mushroom Men were simpler times as the Mushroom Men were just learning to walk, communicate and interact with their world. As the Mushroom Men learn how their world works, they take the player with them, developing their skills, abilities and histories up to the start of the Spore Wars.

Mushroom Men – Rise of the Fungi throws gamers into the action at the point when the different Mushroom nations form, with each claiming a different part of the world as their exclusive territory. The Bolete Tribe and the Morels live in isolation and thrive for a time in peace and quiet. The Amanitas Empire considers themselves superior to the Bolete and the Morels and remains segregated from the other nations until they build forces strong enough to conquer everyone. The Mushroom Men face many threats in this hostile new world. Their size makes them targets for all manner of creatures: spiders, beetles, hornets, and other creatures that threaten to destroy their villages. The Amanitas therefore build their forces by consuming the prosperity of other groups. Raging territorial attacks lead to the terrible Spore Wars. The mysteries of the Mushrooms’ origins fade completely into myth, a riddle that promises great knowledge and power to the one who can find its answer…

While some efforts from third-parties have reached for the stars, a large majority of third-party developed titles have been less than impressive. Capcom, however, has provided the Wii with ongoing, strong support and seems interested in continuing their pattern. Spyborgs is one of the latest titles that have been revealed by the company. The game did not receive a terribly warm reaction from the hardcore Wii crowd, though numerous Capcom representatives have expressed feelings of faith in the game. Based on recent words, Wii owners should begin to believe in Spyborgs too, as Spyborgs, according to Capcom’s Christian Svensson, will max out the Wii and will make the most out of the Wii’s power. Svensson explained,”Spyborgs will be that product. Wait and see.” Also, on a slightly different note, Svensson gave the unfortunate news that Spyborgs won’t have much of a presence at E3. “Captivate was the announcement with very little detail shared… it’ll lie low for a bit until we’re ready for a bigger reveal (similar to what we did with the Dark Void announcement last October with the bigger reveal at Captivate), so no E3 showing.”

Bristol, U.K., July 2nd, 2008 – Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Marker Man Adventures for Nintendo DS™.

Gamers use logic and can collect power-ups to help solve intricate themed puzzles set in underwater, outer space and ice environments, among others. Three difficulty modes and hidden areas within each level present unique surprises throughout Marker Man’s quest to reunite with Doodle Dog.
