Currently a top-rated show on Cartoon Network in the U.S., the story of Blue Dragon centers on a young boy named Shu and several of his friends who possess the ability to control phantom shadows that mirror the actions of their masters. In Blue Dragon Plus, one year has passed since Shu and his companions defeated the tyrannical remnant of the Ancients, Nene. In the midst of the battle, the world split in two and now consists of a myriad of “cubes” that exploded from its depths. King Jibral notices a mysterious cube in the distance suddenly start to move violently, and from it he sees the Shadow of a Balaur, a three-headed dragon, emerge. The enormous and sinister Shadow is just the beginning of the new turmoil and devastation to come.

Disaster: Day of Crisis has been given official release dates in Japan and Europe, but strangely, the gamers of North America have been left clueless when Monolith’s title will launch. However, rumor has it that Disaster will be available in North America this November. The gossip comes from Nintendo Power’s 20th anniversary event, in which one partygoer was approached by a staff member of If this story is to be believed, the newsarama staff member told the person attending Nintendo Power’s event that, although Nintendo has yet to announce a release date for North America, he can “guarantee” that Disaster will launch this November.

I honestly don’t think that anyone should take this rumor seriously. First off, the story easily could have been fabricated, hence why you should take this rumor with a huge grain of salt. Also, I question (if the story is even true) what sources are available to newsarama to back the claim up. But remember: This is a rumor, so you never you know what will happen! I’d be completely satisfied with a November release date if it were true.

DERBY, ENGLAND, September 16th 2008
– Following on from its debut on Xbox Live Arcade, Pinnacle Software are excited to announce that it has teamed up with the game’s original developer, Derby based Strawdog Studios, to bring an all new definitive version of arcade action game Geon to Wii™ in February 2009.

Developed specifically for the Wii with a plethora of brand new gameplay features and enhancements, Geon is a fast paced arcade action game played in an energised geometric grid environment. Playing as a ‘Geon’ cube, players frantically race against up to three other opponents to collect pellets and deposit them in the opponent’s goal to score. At the same time players fight desperately to prevent their opponents from scoring by the tactical use of eight different powerballs including ‘Rage’ which lays down a layer of spikes that can block an opponent or trap them, and ‘Greed’ which sucks up pellets enabling the scoring of a fast goal. All of the powerballs significantly alters the ebb and flow of each game and allows each player to develop their own unique strategies in their quest to be the first to score five goals and win the game!

Geon features a variety of single player and multiplayer modes including Duel Career Mode where your aim is to progress to the top of the four Geon leagues, or Duel and Time Attack modes which features 16 and 32 unique grids respectively and where mini games can be unlocked along the way. Alternatively take on your friends in two or four person split screen multi-player battles to become the undisputed Geon master!
