Eduardo the Samurai Toaster officially announced for WiiWare
Indie developer Semnat Studios is excited to finally announce the upcoming Wii™ release of Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, an incredibly fast and frenetic sidescrolling, run‘n’gun 2D shooter. The game will be released exclusively for WiiWare™ this winter, developed and published by Semnat Studios.
With visuals drawn and scanned in from several different art mediums such as pen & ink, acrylic paint and charcoal, Eduardo sports an untraditional aesthetic design for a videogame. Jump, shoot, whip, drive, fly and throw your way through hordes of Peking Opera pastries, spear toting carrots, robotic mangos, and more. Play with friends as you learn to cooperate effectively, or be annoying by throwing each other around the screen and attacking one another.
* Drop in co-op play for up to four players.
* Ride scooters equipped with laser-blasters and fly around in rocket packs in single player or co-op.
* Use 5 different pastry pickups to upgrade your firepower.
* Battle enemies through 13 unique levels.
* Several different difficulty options to choose from, allowing players to pick their desired level of challenge.
Eduardo the Samurai Toaster has been Rated E for everyone by the ESRB.
About Semnat Studios, LLC
Daniel Coleman and Robert DeMaria formed Semnat Studios in early 2005. Starting out as a hobby, the team began working on games in 2003. After a couple of projects (one of them being an early version of Eduardo) they decided to focus more seriously on game making. So for the next several years they would work their way up, now with the support of Ian Bowie and musician Raymond Gramke, designing numerous versions of Eduardo for the PC. After working on these prototypes for a few years they found the opportunity to make a version of Eduardo for the WiiWare service on Nintendo’s Wii system. In late 2007 they began development on a new Eduardo, learning from their experience on the PC versions

Analyst: Christmas Wii sales “up more than 100%”
Christmas Wii sales are expected to be “up more than 100%” according to Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter. Patcher said, “I haven’t done the work for NPD yet, but my guess is that 360 sales were flat or up a little, PS3 sales down a little, and Wii sales up more than 100%. That would end up around 1.2 – 1.3 million 360s, around 700,000 PS3s and around 3 million (or more) Wiis.”
Official estimates from Patcher should be released early next week. The NPD sales numbers for December will be revealed on January 15.

Capcom hopes to surprise gamers soon
Posted 9 years ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 1 Comment
“2009 will also see Resident Evil 5 finally released, and it’ll also then see us on to our next step. We haven’t shown what Capcom has in store for 2009 yet, so I hope we can surprise you all soon.” – Jun Takeuchi, producer of Resident Evil 5
Capcom’s Christian Svensson stated not too long ago that the company has some tricks up their sleeves for 2009…And then Monster Hunter G was revealed. I’m not entirely sure if Takeuchi is referring to the Wii when he mentions that he hopes Capcom can surprise us, but it is possible.
