Can You Dig It? Fossil Fighters Brings Dino-Sized Fun to Nintendo DS
Posted 13 years ago by Brian in DS, News | 0 comments
REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Dinosaurs may be long gone from the earth, but for owners of the portable Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo DSi™ systems, a new breed of prehistoric excitement is just now coming to life. With today’s release of the Fossil Fighters™ video game, Nintendo is delivering a dino-sized gaming experience that fans of any age or background can pick up and enjoy.
Fossil Fighters invites players to enter a world in which fearsome creatures are hidden as fossils for players to collect, using the unique touch-screen controls of Nintendo DS. Players can clean, collect and battle their discoveries. The game features more than 100 dinosaur-like creatures called Vivosaurs, each of which can be revived and deployed in strategic turn-based battles. With fun tactical elements, vast environments to explore and a lighthearted storyline and characters, Fossil Fighters allows players to control and customize a team of Vivosaurs as they battle their way through the mysterious Vivosaur Island. Players can also connect over local wireless with friends to battle customized teams of Vivosaurs or trade their fossils.
The developer of titles such as Demon’s Souls, Armored Core, and Tenchu: Shadow Assassins have begun to tease a new game on their website. Unsurprisingly, there isn’t much too it right now. More concrete news will be released in eleven days, which is when the countdown is expected to end.

Iwata: Next Nintendo console won’t be releasing in the near future
Posted 13 years ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 1 Comment
With Wii sales at their current state, it almost seems silly to be discussing the next Nintendo console. Of course, the Wii isn’t at its highest demand as it once was, but overall sales have remained stable. Even so, Satoru Iwata was asked about the possibility of a new console at the first quarter financial results briefing. Don’t get too excited – Nintendo has no plans of releasing a new console in the near future.
“…Numerically there is still a possibility to even double the current user population of Wii and DS. Thus we do not believe at all that the expansion has come to an end nor do we need a new console any time soon. So we have not set specific years for the lifespan of current game systems. Of course our employees are researching hardware and those in charge of hardware are already working on developing it. When our internal ideas and trend in the world match up, and when it’s clear that we would be able to manufacture an abundant amount at an affordable price, we will be able to publicly speak about next hardware. At this time, we do not think that is in the near future.”
