Warning: There are spoilers below!
Since its announcement, we’ve all known that the Phantom in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks will assist you in defeating enemies and completing goals. However, the actual mystery behind the Phantom has been revealed. In the beginning of the game, Princess Zelda turns into a ghost. In one scene, the Phantom is about to attack Link, but Zelda, in her ghost form, takes over its body and from that point on aids Link in his journey. It is a bit unexpected, and this is certainly Zelda’s most involved role in the series thus far.
Reggie: NSMB Wii will outsell Modern Warfare 2 on one system by the end of January 2010

Over the past few days, there have been a few predictions made about the sales of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Not too long ago, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter stated that “it’s gonna shock you how many units” New Super Mario Bros. Wii. GameStop is also anticipating that the title will be a huge success. Tony Bartel, Executive VP of Merchandising and Marketing for GameStop, noted earlier this week that “it’s going to be a strong seller for the holiday.” Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO of Nintendo of America, offered his own thoughts about Mario Bros. Wii’s sales on the latest episode of GameTrailers TV and said that it will outperform Modern Warfare 2 on one system by the time the January 2010 NPD data rolls by.
“Modern Warfare 2 is on two platforms. On a single platform, absolutely. I say that unequivocally. On one particular platform, I do believe so. You’ve got to give me the entire holiday selling season, so let’s take it all the way through the January NPD data. It’s going to be close. Modern Warfare is a a great title. As a gamer, I look forward to it. The new Modern Warfare, I think is going to be a fantastic title. Not to discount it, it will sell well. Of course I’ll play it. I play all the content out there.”

Atlus announces first-person science fiction RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for Nintendo DS (North American release)
Within our own world, a new frontier awaits…
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 5, 2009 – Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced Shin Megami Tensei®: Strange Journey™, a first-person science fiction RPG for Nintendo DS™. A startlingly original entry in the award-winning Shin Megami Tensei universe, Strange Journey takes the heralded RPG franchise to exciting new frontiers. The game has already released in Japan to strong demand and critical acclaim, earning a 10/9/9/8 from Famitsu, the highest score the popular magazine has ever awarded a Shin Megami Tensei title.
In the near future, a mysterious, growing, black void appears at the Earth’s southern pole. Unable to determine its cause and powerless to stop its deadly encroachment, humanity sends an elite team of explorers into the heart of the phenomenon, just as Strange Journey’s look and feel represent a return to the heart of Shin Megami Tensei, bringing to mind the all-time classic Nocturne™. With over 300 demons to bribe, coerce, and negotiate with to gain assistance in battle, Strange Journey is every bit the deep, rewarding RPG experience fans have come to expect from the SMT franchise, yet delivered with a fresh new sci-fi story that taps into mature themes of morality and introspection.

Big bucks, no whammies – Ubisoft ships Press Your Luck video game
Press Your Luck® 2010 Edition Now on Store Shelves
SAN FRANCISCO – November 5, 2009 – Ubisoft today announced the official launch of Press Your Luck® 2010 Edition.

Press Your Luck® is a true-to-life revival of the famous game show from the 80’s rendered with a dynamic new design. Players assume the role of one of the three contestants competing to win by answering a series of trivia questions correctly, to earn “spins” on the Big Board of cash and prizes. All of the elements of the original TV game show, including thousands of general knowledge trivia questions to challenge players, are included, as well as animations of the memorably mischievous Whammy character to punctuate the game. Whichever player ends the game with the highest earnings wins, while successfully avoiding the dreaded Whammy or risk losing it all. Additionally, there are a host of special unlockable items to reward players for progress in the game.
