This information comes from Grasshopper’s official blog…

“But this clash of legendary heroes is just the tip of the iceberg! Grasshopper’s taking Grasstream to a new level this year with more interviews, more live music, more guests, and best of all, a new game announcement!”

Hmmm… Suda51 has expressed interest in the 3DS before… Might we see a game announcement for Nintendo’s new handheld? Only time will tell!

Gallery 2 – spoilers

A bunch of Metroid Prime art has been collected from the sites/profiles of numerous Retro Studios, which even includes an image of Kraid (who would have been used in a boss battle). The gallery contains material from all three games in the series. Although some of the images above aren’t concept art, they all epitomize the impressive talents of the staff working on the games. Be warned, though: the second gallery contains art that most would probably consider spoilers… if you haven’t played Prime 3, that is!

The latest edition of Iwata Asks contains an interesting piece of information about one of Namco Bandai’s more esteemed employees. As was revealed in the interview, Ridge Racer 3D producer Yozo Sakagami came very close to working at Konami. Sakagami actually planned on applying to the company, but accidentally dialed Namco Bandai’s number instead as a result of a mix-up with katakana characters. Of course, we now know that the error led to Sakagami’s future with Namco Bandai.

Sakagami: Yes, but I actually wanted to get into KONAMI!

Iwata: Huh?

Sakagami: I was going to apply to KONAMI, but (in Japanese, ) their names are both composed of three katakana characters, so I got confused and applied to NAMCO! (laughs)

Iwata: Are you serious? (laughs)

Sakagami: Yes! A friend of mine was working at KONAMI. I told him I was thinking about getting into the gaming industry and he said I should give it a shot. At the time, KONAMI was headquartered in Kobe.

Iwata: Not far from your home in Nishinomiya.

Sakagami: Right. So I put in a phone call, but got NAMCO instead!

Iwata: (laughs) So if you hadn’t dialed the wrong number, you might not be sitting here today. (laughs)

Sakagami: Maybe not. (laughs)

This information comes from Nintendo UK’s Head of Communications, Rob Saunders, who was asked if positive reactions to the 3DS will mean we’ll see 3D in future Nintendo consoles…

“It’s a good question. The honest answer is that if I told you I’d have to kill you. We’ve had 3D running on past consoles for a number of years and we have had 3D running on the original DS, the Gamecube and the Wii. That’s no secret, we said that at E3 last year, but now it feels like the right time to bring 3D to the market. ‘So ‘never say never’; we’re always working on new consoles and new applications, things like that. We’re always very keen at Nintendo, we always start work on the next home console as soon as the previous one’s released. So we are working on something and we’re always looking at new ideas and new developments, so that work is underway. As to what it pertains to and what it is… Even I don’t know!”

I wouldn’t expect Saunders to know too much about Nintendo’s next home console. However, Satoru Iwata has indicated that 3D functionality could be possible for the Wii’s successor…

Yet another discovery has been made today on the profile of a person’s Behance profile. Nubytech’s Alfredo Tato designed a number of unique controllers in the past, including one for Resident Evil 4. One controller never made it to market, though – a Zelda prototype based on Twilight Princess. Check out some photos of the controller above – it’s definitely interesting, to say the least!


Junichi Masuda, co-founder of Game Freak and director of Pokemon Black & White was first asked if there could be a Pokemon title that was a main part of the series on Wii…

“I don’t think so. I think the Pokemon core series is always going to be with handheld hardware, in the future as well. I consider handheld hardware you can carry around with you as almost being equal to being with Pokemon, always. I think handheld really matches the idea of Pokemon that we have. Also, you can communicate and transfer data all the time, whenever you want with a handheld. That’s also a match with the Pokemon concept.”

Masuda was then asked if the increased connectivity of home consoles would allow them to overcome the portability concept…

“What I think is best for the Pokemon series is to be able to carry it in a portable device, to be able to go anywhere and have fun with people, to not be bound to any one spot. I mean in the future it’d be nice to work on other systems if they were more portable.”

Lastly, Masuda was asked what form a Wii Pokemon title would take…

“Obviously the home console allows people to get together, for parties, and those sorts of things. Maybe in the future, if we can think of a way to do something cool with that, then that’s the sort of environment we can work in.”

I know this sounds discouraging in terms of receiving a proper Pokemon RPG for Wii, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Although we know that there’s a game in development for the console, literally nothing has been said about the project… we don’t even know how involved Masuda is. Let’s just hope it isn’t a party game!
