This information comes from series director Akitoshi Kawazu…

“There are many fans who want a Romancing SaGa 4, so I believe that it is my duty to make it before I die.”

It’s not a matter of if anymore, but when. Let’s just hope fans won’t have to wait another twenty years to see Romancing SaGa 4. Perhaps he could give the game a shot on the 3DS…

Game of the Year – Wii

Donkey Kong Country Returns
Kirby’s Epic Yarn
Metroid: Other M
NBA Jam
Sonic Colors
Super Mario Galaxy 2

Game of the Year – DS

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
Super Scribblenauts
WarioWare D.I.Y.

1. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (1,470,000) (May. 2010)
2. Wii Party (1,220,000) (Oct. 2010)
3. Donkey Kong Country Returns (920,000) (Nov. 2010)
4. Kirby’s Epic Yarn (880,000) (Oct. 2010)
5. Red Steel 2 (850,000) (Mar. 2010)

Man, this is pretty crazy. Could you imagine if half of those Red Steel 2 downloads contributed to actual sales? Even Kirby could have sold better! Although, I must admit I’m surprised that Wii Party is very high up on the list.

Protocol details

Posted 13 years ago by in News, Wii | 0 comments

You may remember that we posted about the first few Protocol details back in March. Sarabasa Entertainment finally shared new information in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, which you can check out below.

– Plays on the cyberpunk conceit of a virtual 3D world
– Warringhackers run around like Quake marines, battle to obtain fields of hidden data
– “Data lanes” for each player
– The lanes change basic rules of how maps work
– Some lanes unlock teleporters to quickly hop across the stage
– Some lanes show hidden areas
– Other lane example: Change in gravity and coridors, “up” can be whatever you say it is
– Two-on-two matches locally
– Four-on-four matches online
– Class-based system in the Team Fortress tradition
– Choose from four classes
– Snipers can pick up the assassin kit, move around and killing their targets at long range
– Secondary fire mode for all weapons which go beyond simple point-and-shoot
– Heavy gunner’s weapon tosses bouncing grenades
– One game type is similar to Counter-Strike’s Demolition game
– Tag/assassin mode: One player obtains all weapons, needs to hold out as long as possible against everyone else
– Traditional deathmatches also available
– Communicate with allies with a set of basic controller shortcuts
– Releasing early next year

The chart below is based off of Famitsu data taken up to December 19, though the New Super Mario Bros. figure is based off of data up to December 26.

Right from the very beginning, Nintendo has been upfront about potential health concerns relating to the 3DS – particularly for children looking at the 3D graphics. Reggie Fils-Aime stated a few months back that Nintendo “will recommend that very young children not look at 3D images.” Now we’re starting to hear about warnings for those playing the handlheld once again. Nintendo shared the following information today:

– Quicker eye fatigue as a result of viewing 3D
– Some 3D software can cause eyes to become tired quicker than other software
– Nintendo recommends players take a break after 30 minutes of play
– “If your physical condition worsens or you become ill, please stop playing at once”
– 3D has different effects on different people
– 3D slider allows a wider group of people to enjoy the system
– 3D not recommended for children under the age of six as the vision of young children is still in developmental stages (like 3D movies and television)
– “Since the Nintendo 3DS can be changed to 2D to avoid any effects on young children’s vision, it is possible for anyone to enjoy playing it”
– Once again, there will be parental controls for 3D
