The sceenshots are not direct-feed from the game and are scans from the latest Nintendo Power, so obviously the quality of the images aren’t at their best. However, before passing judgment, it’d be best to see the game in motion. I do admit though, the game looks decent considering the images are scanned.

In the preview page for Nintendo Power, there is a sword and a text blurb to once again entice the Nintendo Power reader base. The writing states, “We’ll kick off the next 20 years of Nintendo Power with more big reveals including a top-secret cover story fit for a king. It’s got a lot of heart. Just kidding. It’s Mother 3. Just kidding. Please look forward to it.” E3 is just around the corner, so could this be a game related to an upcoming Nintendo announcement? Or, is the magazine set to reveal that a game will be coming stateside?

The past day or so has been a bit like a mini-E3 for Nintendo fans. We learned that we’ll be seeing a new Mega Man on WiiWare, a Castlevania fighting title, and now…The revival of Adventure Island. In a Hudson conference call yesterday, Takahashi Meijin revealed that a new Adventure Island game is in development and that it will “probably” end up on WiiWare. Unfortunately, specific details about the game were not discussed, although there is an encouraging sign about the game’s motion controls. The developers explained that they are not interested in forcing motion control – unlike many other developers – as forcing them would “change what the game is about.”

There were a few interesting tidbits from the conference call as well. Between Alien Crush, Blue Oasis, and Karaoke Joysound Wii, two out of the three will be localized for North America. Furthermore, Hudson is creating a “puzzle action;” there’s a chance the title may take advantage of the Wii balance board.

About Prince of Persia: The Fallen King

Facing imminent danger, the Prince flees to a deserted kingdom that seemingly offers sanctuary. Already touched by the evil Corruption, a dark substance that physically contaminates the land and the skies, the kingdom is filled with adventure, challenge and intrigue. As the Prince seeks a way to fight the spreading Corruption destroying the land, he encounters a partially infected creature that promises salvation. But is the creature truly an ally or merely an enemy in disguise? It seems this perilous alliance may be the only way for the Prince to face the forces of darkness and save the Persian kingdom from the Corruption once and for all.
