“…With No More Heroes 1, the idea came when I was literally sitting on the toilet. It was the result of trying to empty my bowels, if you like. With No More Heroes 2, I tried to get rid of whatever was left in my bowels, and luckily it happened. What we are hoping to do now with No More Heroes 3 is probably to digest everything we eat, and then purge absolutely everything in our guts, just like diarrhea.” – Suda51

Suda51 has stated numerous times that he would like to create another No More Heroes title. However, it will probably star a character other than Travis. Suda51 has also mentioned that he would like to develop the new title for the Wii’s successor. But since it doesn’t seem like Nintendo will be launching a new console anytime soon, perhaps Grasshopper will make No More Heroes 3 for Wii.

“Discipline is freaky, really mind-bending stuff. I don’t think the US market is ready for it.” – Ken from XSEED Games

In other news, XSEED will not be localizing Kimino Yusha. The game was released in 2008 for DS in Japan and was published by SNK.

“We are very happy that Just Dance has topped the All Formats Chart once again. We have just sold through over 2 million units worldwide so it’s clearly a title that is really resonating with so many Wii owners. We went back on TV over Easter weekend with a Nintendo bundle ad – HMV are offering Just Dance free if you buy a Nintendo Wii. We hope the love that is clearly out there for Just Dance continues and that everyone just keeps dancing!” – Just Dance brand manager Rachael Grant

It’s amazing how well Just Dance has sold. The game received some awful reviews, yet it has managed to top the charts in the UK and exceed expectations in North America. It’s a shame that Red Steel 2 probably won’t match half of Just Dance’s sales…

Celebrated Composer Records A-List World Music Talent for Evocative Original Score Featured in New Prince of Persia® for the Nintendo WiiTM

New York, April 6th, 2010 – Tom Salta, one of the most decorated and prolific music composers for multimedia, has produced an original music score for Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™ for the Nintendo Wii™ system. Salta is renowned for crafting memorable, emotionally engaging scores for the medium and delivers a melodic and deeply immersive soundtrack that is essential to the rich gaming experience of Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™. Developed by Ubisoft®’s Production Studio in Quebec and built entirely from the ground up, Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™ for the Nintendo Wii™ is a new chapter in the critically acclaimed Prince of Persia® The Sands of Time series, which introduces players to a brand new storyline complete with new characters, and powers that transcend both nature and time. Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™ is scheduled to be commercially released on May 18, 2010.

“An outstanding composer, Tom Salta is extremely passionate and truly committed to our project,” said Aurelien Baguerre, audio director for Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™ on the Nintendo Wii™. “The action and gameplay are remarkably enhanced by Tom’s beautiful orchestrations which unmistakably evoke Persian colors, providing a grandiose and emotional dimension to our game.”


– Sakaguchi said something like “How about stopping with the Final Fantasy rehashes? on Twitter to Final Fantasy Gaiden director
– Also said “I think you’ll feel this once you’ve tried it. LS is not a rehash.”
– Sakaguchi won’t say who is composing the game yet
– One person doing the whole soundtrack
– Part of Sakaguchi’s Mistwalker blog update: “The weather doesn’t clear up, but my heart is clearing up. This is because I shut myself up with the development team every day and am able to feel The Last Story being born. It’s finally off from the creator’s hands and has begun to move on its own — like always. It’s like a living creature. It breaths on its own, it speaks on its own. It’s fascinating, even though its spirit is digital data.”

Captivate seems to have turned into an annual event for Capcom. The company has confirmed that Captivate will once again take place this year. You can expect the company to reveal a few games as well as feature already-announced titles. Keiji Infaune – as well as other producers and directors – will be attending. You guys know what I want: An official North American localization announcement for Okamiden!
