At E3, Nintendo revealed Demo Play, a ploy of sorts that the company is featuring to make experiences less frustrating for casual gamers. Essentially, players can allow the game itself to take over and skip parts that he/she finds difficult. The first title to be making use of this function will be New Super Mario Bros. Wii, although Nintendo isn’t stopping there. Japanese reports from Nikkei say that the Big N will be implementing Demo Play in DS games as well. No specific titles were mentioned, but seeing as how New Super Mario Bros. Wii will be the first representative of Demo Play, implementation of the mode in handheld games shouldn’t be expected until after the holiday season.

Province supports Ubisoft in development of first Ontario-based studio

LONDON, UK – JULY 7, 2009 – Ubisoft announced plans today to open a full development studio in Toronto, Ontario – a first for the company in the province. This significant announcement is expected to result in the creation of 800 net new jobs within the province over the next decade. The government of Ontario is investing CA$263 million over ten years in the company and Ubisoft’s net investment will be over half a billion CAD in the new studio, which will begin operations in late 2009.

“Today’s announcement marks a strategic move for Ubisoft as we continue to expand our internal development force,” said Yves Guillemot, president and chief executive officer at Ubisoft. “We are in an excellent position to grow and after extensive analysis we are thrilled to have reached an agreement with the government of Ontario to found our new studio in Toronto. The city is one of North America’s economic and cultural epicenters and our expectations are high. We’re excited to be able to count on the exceptional local talent, who will contribute to our accelerated growth and will have a profound impact on the video game industry with the excellence of their creativity.”

At last, the teenage turtles and Rabbids can fight in the same arena. A demo of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up, which was present at this year’s Japan Expo in France, confirms that at least two variations of the Rabbids will be playable in the game. This isn’t the biggest surprise in the world considering that the Rabbids have become an IP for Ubisoft, but some will probably feel that the little beasts serve as a nice addition. While a typical Rabbid can be selected, there was also some sort of Sam Fisher-like Rabbid as well.
