While Nintendo was at the top of its game during the Wii era, the same can’t be said of Wii U. Wii managed to sell 100 million units while Wii U unfortunately couldn’t even make it to 15 million. There were certainly dark times, but Nintendo navigated through those difficult years and has found success once again with Switch.

During an appearance at GeekSummit earlier this month, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was asked about how he and the company as a whole went about leading its staff during the Wii U era and keep them believing in their larger vision. Reggie’s response included a note about Nintendo’s constant reinvention, that the Big N is about doing things differently from others, and how “there will always be stumbles along the way.”

Yooka-Laylee currently exists only as a game. However, Dreamprism Press is looking to expand the IP into a new area.

Having received developer Playtonic’s blessing, Dreamprism intends to open a Kickstarter tomorrow for a Yooka-Laylee spin-off comic. It’s been written and illustrated by D.M. Cumbo, a former artist at Insomniac Games. According to IGN, the comic takes place after the game and involves Yooka and Laylee entering a new tome world in a race against Dr. Quack to grab an artifact rumored to grant invincibility.

The project will be realized if the Kickstarter campaign reaches $40,000 in funding. It’ll run until November 16, with rewards to ship in June 2019. Fans can purchase a digital edition for $15, a hand-sewn hardcover at $30, a Kickstarter-exclusive edition at $50, and the limited Grand Tome Collector’s Edition at $75.

Level-5 announced Megaton Musashi in 2016. We’ve barely heard a peep about it since then, but it sounds like we’re due for an update in the somewhat near future. It seems that Megaton Musashi will finally be back in the news at Jump Festa 2019.

Megaton Musashi is intended to be one of Level-5’s next big franchises following the likes of Yo-kai Watch and Inazuma Eleven. It’s a sci-fi cross-media IP set in a place where 90% of mankind has been killed off by aliens.

Jump Festa 2019 will take place between December 22 and December 23.
