“Right now we have just completed Spirit Tracks, [and] I am in the mindset that we have created the most enjoyable Zelda game ever.” – Eiji Aonuma

I know one thing for sure: Spirit Tracks is much, much better than the CD-i Zelda games! I also have a feeling that Spirit Tracks will be more enjoyable than Phantom Hourglass, for me at least. I’m very pleased that you can skip previously cleared areas in the Spirit Tower. Being forced to go through the same places in Temple of the Ocean King over and over was one of my main gripes with the last DS Zelda.

Nintendo has been slouching on N64 releases for the Wii Virtual Console, but it looks like things are beginning to change. The original Super Smash Bros. is already confirmed to be releasing this year and Ogre Battle 64, a classic Nintendo 64 game, has been rated by the OFLC. This is an Australian rating, but it could mean that the title will release in other territories in the near future.

Biggest year ever for the home of Japanese games as Fragile Dreams, Rune Factory Frontier and the staggeringly brilliant Half-Minute Hero bag European release dates
21 November 2009 – Rising Star Games, Europe’s most prolific publisher of Japanese-originated games, will begin 2010 with a bang, as the publisher announces its first eight titles for its first quarter of next year.??

Rising Star Games’ first-quarter releases – confirmed to Hoshi members ( HYPERLINK “http://www.risingstargames.com/hoshi” “_new” www.risingstargames.com/hoshi) last night – cover all formats and all genres. Including one title from affiliate label Gamebridge, the release schedule offers staggering diversity, and include the firm’s first Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles.

On Saturday, while it was the five year anniversary of the Nintendo DS’ original release in North America, the DSi XL launched in Japan. Famitsu has reported on the system’s first two days of sales and has determined that it sold 103,524 in two days. It should be noted that this data is from Enterbrain and not Media Create, which is sometimes a more trustworthy source for sales numbers. Still, it seems as though the handheld is off to a fairly good start, especially considering that the handheld isn’t a major upgrade to the DSi.
