“With Twilight Princess, we challenged ourself to create the most vast and realistic world the series had ever seen, but we don’t feel that we were able to fully complete this objective. With that as a starting point for our improvements to the series in the future, we are of course working on a new game for Wii. For any game to be remembered for a long time, just like Ocarina of Time was, the game must give the strong impression that it has set a new starting point for future sequels to build upon. We are working to further improve upon the experiences found in Twilight Princess so that our future games can realize these innovations.” – Eiji Aonuma

It sounds like some elements from Twilight Princess will be carried over to Zelda Wii in some way, but I wouldn’t get too concerned about this quote if you’re thinking it will just be a rehash. It wasn’t too long ago that Aonuma said that the team is looking at ways to change the traditional structure that the series has been known for.


Unfortunately, not much is known about this title other than the information provided by the ESRB (see below)…

Platform: Nintendo DSi

Rating: Everyone

Content descriptors: No Descriptors

Rating summary:

This is an activity game in which players can use a camera to take pictures of themselves. Players can then customize the pictures with a variety of stamps, photo effects, and text boxes.

I’d imagine that this will end up on DSiWare rather than in stores, but we’ll find out for sure soon enough.


Bundling software with DSi systems isn’t a new thing for Nintendo. In fact, the company ran a promotion on black Friday, in which five DSiWare Mario came pre-installed. In China, however, gamers will get a taste of a full retail title, Nintendogs. The only thing is that, for now, it isn’t clear if the full game or a sampling will be featured. The DSi, under the brand name iQue, will be launching in China on December 15.

Update #3 (12/9 – 3:00 PM EST) – According to our tech guy, things should be up and running for good. I’m a bit hesitant to say that, but we’ll be watching the situation on the site very closely. I sincerely apologize for the downtime the past few days.

Update #2 (12/9 – 12:30 PM EST) – Turns out everything isn’t okay, but you guys probably know that at this point. We’re still working on the issue and hopefully should be back soon. I’m going to try and see if I can add any additional posts in the meantime (see posts below).

Bumping this to the front page. We SHOULD be completely fine now. Turns out our host was having router issues.

You know how our most recent site maintenance was supposed to fix all future issues with the site? Well, our tech guy put it best: “The server froze to hell.” Because of this, we were down for a number of hours. I honestly don’t know how that happened and believe me when I say that I’m not happy that the site was down. We are back now, though, and I’ll have to pester our tech guy a little later on today to see if we can prevent this from occurring again.
