A developer blog for Kizuna has opened, confirming that, once again, the game has not been canceled. The creators say that they are sorry to those who have been anticipating the software and that they wish to live up to expectations. It is also stated that the slow development can be attributed to the fact that they wish to create a high-quality title.

In terms of actual game details, the notice says that the social aspect of Kizuna will be important. You meet people in the game and overcome difficulties together. Besides growing in strength, you will be able to see the character grow spiritually.

Thanks to Isai for the news tip!

* As expected, it confirms that this is a third version of the previous games; Darkness & Time, but includes loads of extras
* The story runs the same as previous Dungeon games with you being a character who has turned into a Pokémon
* The main hub is Treasure Town again and contains the same shops, but it appears there is more added to Treasure Town this time. The contents of which is yet to be revealed

A few small changes

While our tech guy was making the site ever faster about a day or so ago, I’ve begun doing a bit of a cleanup of my own. First, I’ve taken down a few pages that I believe no longer have any use – The “Help” and “OWN” pages.

I’ve also added in the Polls Archive, which has been changed from the “vs. Feature” page. Now everyone can take a look at all of NE’s past polls. The vs. Feature was just too pointless to have up there by itself.

Last but not least, we now have our own video player. It’s nothing fancy, but you’ll be able to watch high-quality videos (in some cases) right on NE. We’ll be hosting the video files by ourselves too, so no need to rely on YouTube on anymore (though keep in mind YouTube and other video players may be included on NE…Any special/important video will definitely be posted with our own video player – Sorry if that sounded confusing!)

Thanks to joclo for the news tip.

SEGA has three significant titles planned for Wii owners coming up: The Conduit, MadWorld, and Sonic and the Black Knight. The Conduit and MadWorld will undoubtedly appeal to hardcore gamers, but Sonic and the Black Knight may be a different story. SEGA’s Tetsu Katano, who is part of the Sonic Team, said that the game is “aimed at a younger, more casual audience.”

“Sonic and the Black Knight is aimed at a younger, more casual audience. We’ve changed a lot of things, essentially. It’s thinking as children; approaching things from their point of view, thinking what they want to see. Sonic is kind of a cheeky, edgy character, and so we like seeing Sonic challenge new things all the time. The Wii is a big part of it, because it appeals to a wider range of people who maybe have not played a Sonic game before.”
