“[Kimi to Boku to Ritai will release in North America] Pretty soon. The localization has been a little difficult even though the game itself doesn’t have a lot of text. Once you start playing it, Ritai should feel intuitive, because the motions are very simple. But I was afraid that people would be put off by such a new concept, so the tutorial is quite detailed. There’s a lot of explanation provided to avoid any possible confusion. And there’s lots of different languages to work on, like German, French and Spanish as well. But it should finish development next week. After that, it’s up to Nintendo of America to set a release date.” – Kenji Eno

I’m glad to see that Kimi to Boku to Ritai is being localized and that the game will be available soon. The game definitely has an interesting concept.

Wii not going anywhere anytime soon

“…what you’re seeing is this average business model, the typical business model of, say, the five to six year generation of hardware is just not valid anymore. The Wii is a very approachable, accessible platform that’s going to interest gamers for years to come.” – Marc Franklin, Nintendo’s Director of PR

I’m pretty happy that the Wii will be around for some time. Especially with Wii MotionPlus coming, I see no reason to rush through this console generation.

Before I even begin explaining this rumor, let me say that there’s a good chance that this is an April Fool’s joke. So take the following with a huge grain of salt.

Game Focus is reporting that – after speaking with their Japanese Nintendo contact – a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is in development. An official announcement would follow on April 5. This is something that I personally don’t see happening. If anything, I would expect an announcement to happen at E3, not on some random day, especially when the DSi will be the focus in North America. Who knows though…Stranger things will happen. Find out if this was really an April Fool’s Joke in the following days.
