Cult County was announced for the 3DS eShop earlier this year, but quickly fell off the radar. Good news: the game is still in the works. Bad news: we won’t be hearing about it again until next year.

The Wii is on its way out, and the Wii U hasn’t performed up to Nintendo’s expectations. Given these two factors, MCV decided to ask Activision’s UK MD, Roy Stackhouse, about whether the publisher’s expectations for the game have been negatively impacted.

Not at all, Stackhouse said. In fact, he along with Activision as a whole “expect to sell a lot of Skylanders on the Nintendo platforms.” Stackhouse also said the company still considers Nintendo to be “a very integral part of our sales mix going forward.”

Stackhouse’s comments in full:

“Not at all. We still expect to sell a lot of Skylanders on the Nintendo platforms. Just because the sales may have softened doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of consoles out there that children are still playing on. We still see Nintendo as a very integral part of our sales mix going forward.”

Nintendo decided against launching Wii Party U on the eShop in North America and Europe. The situation is different Down Under, however.

Yep – Wii Party U is up on the Australian Wii U eShop. It’s been available since the game’s launch late last week, in fact.

Why is Wii Party U being distributed on the Australian eShop but not the North American and European stores? Your guess is as good as mine!

Square Enix tends to hold its Final Fantasy franchise close to the vest. The series hasn’t changed hands in the past, with Square Enix deciding to develop each new game internally.

Now here’s a crazy thought: how about an Eidos-made Final Fantasy? You may remember that Square Enix absorbed the company a few years ago, and is now a close partner as a result.

Interestingly, Square Enix has considered bringing in an outside developer to work on Final Fantasy – including Eidos. There have been discussions about the possibility, according to Yuji Abe. Abe said Square Enix would “think about” allowing an external team to take on Final Fantasy “if we find the right team of developers, the right people who really wanted to do it, and we had the right game”.

A brand new Pokemon title has been revealed through the latest episode of NHK’s “Professional—Style of Work” program. Details are still coming in, but it’s a detective title that has players partnering with Pikachu.

The unnamed game’s total development is expected to be two years, according to The Pokemon Company president Tsunekaz Ishihara. In it, players will encounter a rare Pikachu, which is apparently the enemy players will take on, and Ishihara believes that people won’t end up liking it. Also planned for the game: a blue Pikachu and a talking Pikachu.

The new title is due out sometime in 2015.

We’ll bring you more as it comes.
