We found out that Tekkaman Blade is being added to the new “version” of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom through Famitsu yesterday. But it looks like the other three characters have been leaked, too. Capcom opened a website for Ultimate All-Stars, and the code lists what appears to be the rest of the unannounced characters. The filenames discovered are oncharactor_btn_zero.jpg, oncharactor_btn_frank.jpg, oncharactor_btn_joe.jpg, and oncharactor_btn_tekkabla.jpg. In order, those names would most likely turn out to be Mega Man Zero, Frank West, Condor Joe, and Tekkaman Blade (which we know about already). It won’t be long before Capcom officially reveals the characters though, as TGS is just a few weeks away.

Although Scribblenauts will undoubtedly provide countless hours of entertainment, many gamers are wondering how enjoyable the game actually is. Well, there’s at least one publication that believes it’s practically perfect. Ultimate Nintendo Magazine published the first review of Scribblenauts in its latest issue and awarded the game a perfect ten.

The title was praised for having the ability to “capture the attention of any person and have them experience an instant sense of delight,” its easy-to-use controls, addictiveness, creativity, and replayability. The magazine did manage to find some minor faults, however. Stylus-only controls can be slightly problematic in tight spaces and the numbers of objects allowed in a level can occasionally be limiting. Still though, it’s clear that the editor enjoyed the game and went as far as to say that “if you buy this game and cannot get some pure enjoyment out of it, there is something medically wrong with your brain.”

This is what a SEGA spokesperson had to say when asked if Project Needlemouse will be released for Wii…

“It’s called Project Needlemouse and we’ll have more information at a later date.”

The statements made to GameSpot about the game being in HD certainly made it seem as though the game will only be for the PS3/360. However, since SEGA isn’t truly commenting on the situation, we’ll have to wait and see if a Wii version is in the works.
