EDISON, N.J., January 15, 2009 – Dive into life as a Puffin as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Puffins: Island Adventure for Nintendo DS™. Developed by Other Ocean Interactive, Puffins: Island Adventure is an adventure simulation that lets players experience what it’s like to be one of Nature’s most unusual and endearing seabirds.

In Puffins: Island Adventure, players become part of a Puffin flock and experience their arduous, but rewarding, existence as they learn to fly, dive, start a family and more. While navigating through the island, they will interact with other Puffins, play games to earn the favor of their peers and raise a family to carry on their legacy. Puffins: Island Adventure features mini-games that relate to real-life Puffin activities underwater, in air and on land. By mastering the Puffin 500, Puffin Plummet and Tide Pool Fishing, players earn reputation points that unlock pictures and videos of real Puffins in their natural Canadian locales. If players make it far enough, they will unlock new levels and even their very own Puffin burrow. Gameplay through the untamed wilderness is accompanied by traditionally-styled Atlantic Canadian music composed of exotic instruments including the tin whistle, fiddle and bodhran. Music composition features the talent of one of Canada’s most popular artists, Alan Doyle, frontman for the world renowned band Great Big Sea. In addition, Puffins: Island Adventure also features 4 player local and 2 player Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection multiplayer modes.

“You’ll have to get it [Monster Hunter Classic Controller] from an import shop. Neither MHG or that controller is coming to the US. Sorry.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

It is a bit unfortunate that North America will miss out on Monster Hunter G, but at least Monster Hunter 3 has a good chance of heading stateside.

It’s unclear at this time if this game will be released for a Nintendo system – or even for any console – but this footage looks pretty legitimate if you ask me.


1. Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360, Rockstar)
2. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360, Activision)
3. Halo 3 (Xbox 360, Microsoft)
4. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Xbox 360, Ubisoft)
5. Army of Two Army of Two (Xbox 360, Electronic Arts)
6. Mario Kart Wii (Wii, Nintendo)
7. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, Nintendo)

8. Fallout 3 (Xbox 360, Bethesda)
9. Assassin’s Creed (Xbox 360, Ubisoft)
10. Mario Party 8 (Wii, Nintendo)


North America has traditionally been the first country to receive the Metroid Prime games, but in the case of the original remake for the Wii, gamers overseas will have to wait a bit longer compared to Japan. The Metroid Prime remake has been given a February 19th release date. The obvious attraction here is that the game will make use of the Wiimote and nunchuck similar to Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. A true 16 x 9 mode and some finer textures are expected to be present in the game as well.


If you live in Japan, there are some special Monster Hunter goodies on the way for you. Capcom has revealed that retailers will sell a special Classic Controller. Gamers will be able to pick it up when Monster Hunter G releases (April 23rd), and have the choice of purchasing the controller in a bundle. Not enough to motivate you to buy Monster Hunter G? Well, it has been additionally revealed that the game will come with a demo of Monster Hunter 3.

Game Description:
The first officially licensed MotoGP title ever for the Nintendo Wii platform, MotoGP turns the Wii remote into a virtual set of handlebars to deliver the definitive two-wheeled racing experience.
The development team’s overriding aim is to deliver an unparalleled handling model that allows access points for gamers of all skill levels and just as importantly provide a challenge to meet each player’s abilities.

MotoGP for Wii puts the player at the centre of the world’s premier motorcycling championship by letting them join a team and compete alongside their sporting heroes in all three race classes – 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP. Recent MotoGP titles had excluded 125cc and 250cc at a cost and Capcom is keen to ensure that all the riders are faithfully represented, which also enables complete progression through the ranks as well as giving the gamer a different racing experience per class. The game features a scaled and competitive AI which adjusts within limits to give a more enjoyable race experience on the lower levels but shows no mercy in the higher levels.
