Remember, Pokemon Platinum isn’t really a new game, but more of an “expansion” pack of Diamond and Pearl. Still, this should keep Pokemon fans busy while they wait for the next big game. Pokemon Platinum is scheduled for a September 13th release in Japan and other territories will most likely follow soon afterward.

To be honest, the media and gaming fans alike do not know a tremendous amount Monster Hunter 3. The game has received a ton of publicity not only because the game moved from the PS3 to the Wii, but also due to the series’ enormous success in Japan. In general, many people were expecting some news about Monster Hunter 3 at E3 – at least in some form – but at this point, the game looks like it’ll be completely absent from the expo.

On the bright side, an appearance for the Tokyo Game Show in October seems highly probable. TGS has been one of the more well-known events and many Japanese-related announcements have come from previous shows. Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development not only reinforced the significance of Monster Hunter in Japan, but has additionally noted that announcements related to the series would come from more Japanese-oriented venues. “(Monster Hunter 3) is increasingly critical (to the Japanese market)… but it’s probably safer to any major MH announcements to most likely come from more Japan-focused events given the importance of the series to that territory.”

CAMBRIDGE– July 10, 2008 – Zombies across the world will meet their match when D3Publisher (D3P) brings the popular bikini-clad samurai sisters Aya and Saki to our shores in Onechanbara™: Bikini Zombie Slayers on the Wii™ console. Bikini Zombie Slayers will ship to retail stores in early 2009, giving gamers their long-awaited taste of the series famous for its iconic characters and heart-pounding third-person hack-and-slash action.

In Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers, Aya is out to find the meaning of her IMICHI ancestors, even if it leads to the answer she does not wish for. Players can master the sword to take full advantage of the Wii RemoteTM motion controls by slashing, swinging and thrusting into zombie enemy hordes. Play as either sister Aya or Saki in single player or with a friend in Co-Op Mode and utilize each of their unique fighting styles and set of moves. Get too much blood on either sister and be driven into Rage Mode and gain more power and agility to destroy enemies faster and deadlier. Every person met and enemy battled brings the sisters closer to understanding who or what is behind the zombie outbreak and putting an end to it.

England, Stourbridge: July 10th, 2008 – Data Design Interactive – a successful video games publisher and games developer, today unveiled NuYu editor lets you put yourself in the game by creating customisable characters that fit your personality. You can then use those characters in compatible NuYu games and even save them to your Wii Remote to take to a friend’s house.

About NuYu

A NuYu (pronounced New-You) is a customisable player character editor exclusive for our Popcorn Arcade Wii range. NuYu’s are customisable and allow the user to capture a likeness, caricature or personality of themselves and others. After creating them, they can be used as participating characters in NuYu compatible games.

The NuYu Editor will be first featured in our soon to be released Kidz Sports – Crazy Mini Golf.

With the unique color scheme of black helmet and red visor, the Phazon Suit is awarded after defeating the Omega Pirate. Both Samus’ suit and gun are infected with pure Phazon. This gives the Phazon Suit an ability to protect Samus from the deadly effects of the deadly blue substance and shoot the Phazon Beam when standing in pools of Phazon. Just when Metroid Prime is defeated, the Phazon Suit is stolen and used to create one of Samus’ greatest enemies, Dark Samus!

First 4 Figures is extremely proud to present the ultimate version of the Samus Aran’s Phazon Suit. First 4 Figures has used the official game files in order to create an extremely accurate recreation of the Phazon suit, with pose inspiration taken from official Metroid artwork.

Looks incredibly on its own and really completes a display when put together with the Varia suit and Gravity suit statues.

For months upon months now, rumors have circulated that Microsoft has their own Wii-esque controller in the works. By the time E3 blows by, we will most likely know for sure if such a product is in the works. Darwin is one controller than is extremely similar to the Wiimote and is being developed by Motus, although we do not know for sure if Microsoft has struck a deal with Motus as a first-party agreement, or if the controller will come as a third-party peripheral. It would make sense that Darwin is a third-party accessory considering Microsoft would never let something like this slip; Admittedly though, anything is possible. According to the company’s official website, Darwin is expected to release in less than a year.

Even though Defend your Castle is available for free on the PC, the game always manages to top the North American WiiWare charts. The improved graphics and general insanity of the game with a friend really makes the game both hilarious and fun game. Europe, however, still has not had Defend your Castle added to the WiiWare service. A rating from PEGI could change this in the near future though, as the game has finally been rated. Defend your Castle has been given a 7+ rating, so it’s probable that the game will be releasing in Europe shortly.
