I’m not entirely sure whether you guys will find this useful or not, but I’ve added a new feature to NE’s version of WordPress. At the end of each news post article, you can find a couple of links that are related to the news post you are currently reading. That way, if you want to read additional information about a particular subject, you won’t have to go searching for related content. It’s not perfect, and I’ve been tweaking the system, but I hope you guys find it useful.

Over the past few days, Nintendo fans have been forced to understand that E3 is no longer a place for hardcore games to be shown. Instead, it’s where new and casual products can be introduced. In a (roughly) translated interview with Spiegel, Satoru Iwata further explains why Nintendo decided to hold back on hardcore games at E3. “We understand that people were disappointed [with E3]. One must bear in mind that the E3 is always a good place to capture mass audience attention because the media interest is so high. So we concentrated on the games that we share with a new customer in mind that we have developed. We wanted to show what we have this year and early 2009 on the market. We have our games for the hard core of gamers, and there are still teams working on such games. But it just takes longer to finish developing these games, they finish within two to three years. The beginning of 2009 we will not bring, so we could at the E3 show none.”


Okami sequel unlikely

When Okami was released back in 2006 for the PS2, it received stellar reviews. Unfortunately, in spite of the positive feedback, not too many people purchased the game. Once Okami launched on the Wii however, people began to hope that there could be at least one more sequel down the line, as the game was given new legs. Still, the ruinous situation with PS2 sales continued with the Wii version. For this reason, it is probably not too surprising that Capcom’s Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development, Christian Svensson, is doubtful of an Okami sequel. “I think we need a lot more people buying the current version before we seriously consider a sequel.” The one striking detail about this quote is that a new game wasn’t fully denied. One would expect that when Clover Studios dissolved, there would be a 100% assurance that Amaterasu would be taking a very long rest. Based on the quote though, the fact remains that more Okami in the future is highly improbable.
