Splendid visuals, fascinating characters and a high-powered battle system to be featured in the next epic Japanese RPG experience

SAN FRANCISCO (December 4, 2008) – SEGA® of America, Inc. announced today that the exclusive Nintendo DS™ title, Sands of Destruction™, will be releasing in North America. Critically acclaimed in Japan and gaining recognition through the television anime World Destruction: Sekai Bokumetsu no Rokuni™, gamers will experience an action-packed story featuring a unique range of characters, a gorgeous artistic atmosphere and an intense RPG battle system.

“We are very excited to bring this original RPG to the U.S.,” states Yoichi Shimosato, producer of Sands of Destruction. “Our very talented team is eager to showcase the unique world and gameplay experience of Sands of Destruction and they firmly believe we have created an RPG world that can be enjoyed by everyone.”

Mind Your Language poised to revolutionise language tuition on the go

PlayV, the UK-based publishing venture co-funded by V2.Play and Playlogic, has announced that its suite of language tuition titles for Nintendo DS will be released in February 2009. On the shelves from 13th February and with full accreditation from international language school Inlingua, Mind Your Language revolutionises language tuition by constructing a detailed and fun-filled adventure in which the player learns interactively through exploration and mini-games.

Mind Your Language puts players in the shoes of a user-customisable schoolchild at a language school. With versions for Spanish, French, German and Japanese, the game is arranged into four levels of increasing difficulty, with each language taught from the bottom-up. This elemental approach provides a full and complete understanding of written and vocal language to a standard beyond that possible with ‘parrot-fashion’ learning aids. As the player progresses, they amass a huge dictionary covering every facet of each language, and with each word represented in text and spoken aloud, Mind Your Language provides a remarkably accessible means of learning without resorting to phrase books or rote learning. Targeted predominantly at young learners, the inclusive and accessible nature of Mind Your Language’s approach makes it the ideal learning aid for students of any age, as well as providing an excellent method for parent/child co-operative learning.

“While this is a licensed game, it’s not tied to any movie or TV show…for this game to succeed on its own it needs to be a great game.” – Ubisoft producer

Update: More details about the game have been confirmed: Online play, confirmed to be for Wii, will be published by Ubisoft, set for a September 2009 release date.

A sneak peak in a gaming magazine has the first information on a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Although only a few details were shared, the blurb explains that the title will focus on fighting. Also, members of the Super Smash Bros. Brawl dev. team and former Team Ninja developers have been confirmed to be working on the project. The teaser doesn’t mention which system the game is being made for, though I am pretty sure they are referencing the Wii.

“To kick off our big 2009 preview special, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peak at a game that’s so early it hasn’t even been named yet! For now we’ll just call if TMNT. A new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game is always worth at least a raised eyebrow (despite the, er, mixed results of the foursome’s last several titles), but when it’s a four-player fighting game made by some of the folks who worked on Super Smash Bros. Brawl and former members of Tecmo’s famed Team Ninja (who worked on the Ninja Gaiden and Dead of Alive series), then we’re looking at one of the most exciting stories of the new year.”
