New Dragon Quest IX video

Posted 9 years ago by in DS, News | 0 comments

Yesterday, a rumor broke out that Monster Hunter 3 might not release on just the Wii. The chances of a PSP version are likely,, but now Capcom has updated the official game website with new information. The notice explains that Monster Hunter 3 will remain as a Wii exclusive – for now, that is. Though, the site update may be nothing more than an attempt to lessen any possible backlash that Capcom would receive if the game released on other platforms after all. Don’t rule out other versions just yet, such as a PSP edition, which could easily end up as a reality in the future.

London (10th December 2008) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces that FINAL FANTASY® CRYSTAL CHRONICLES®: Echoes of Time™ will be released across PAL territories in Spring 2009, exclusively on both Nintendo DS™ and Wii™ systems.

Introducing the World’s first cross-platform multiplayer adventure for the Nintendo DS & Wii systems! Set in the fun and friendly CRYSTAL CHRONICLES universe of the FINAL FANTASY series, FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: Echoes of Time delivers a unique and innovative experience where both Nintendo platforms come together in perfect harmony.

December 9th 2008 – Prepare for a touch of the paranormal as detective-adventure Lux-Pain is confirmed for a UK release by Rising Star Games.

To accompany this announcement, the first set of screenshots and the official trailer have been released, highlighting the dark anime atmosphere. Lux-Pain will be released in the UK during March 2009.

Bizarre and paranormal murders have put Kisaragi City into a state of fear. A powerful mind parasite known as SILENT is spreading throughout the city. It infects humans and pushes them to perform horrendous acts by controlling their minds. Atsuki is a member of FORT, a secret organisation devoted to eradicating this parasite. Despatched to Kisaragi City as an undercover student, Atsuki has a special skill that can gain him the advantage against an invisible enemy: he can see SILENT.

Independent developer ClockStone Software is working on a DS version of the successful RPG series.

Innsbruck, December 10, 2008. Wicked black humor, a dark and sinister setting, an elaborate magic and fight system – these are just some of the elements that make the RPG series Vampires Dawn such a hit. Now, the Austrian development studio ClockStone – best known for their action-RPG Avencast – is planning a Nintendo DS version of the award-winning series. For this project, they will be working with Vampires Dawn creator Dawnatic and the Munich-based production company remote control productions.

Game designer Tri Do Dinh is crazy about Vampires Dawn: “It’s incredibly fun to play a villainous vampire who strikes fear into the heart of the villagers in a humorous and very entertaining way. The character controls and the mechanics of the puzzles will transfer easily to DS.” CEO Michael Schiestl adds: “Our team learned a lot about the RPG genre when we were working on Avencast. We’re highly motivated to continue our work in this area and to increase our involvement in the handheld sector.”
