Enroll in Magic Academy, Build Friendships, Cast Spells and Embark On Adventure In This Brand-New Title That Is Fun For All Ages

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today revealed new game details and screenshots from the upcoming real-time adventure title Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times for Nintendo DS™. Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times is a unique combination of an adventure game and simulation RPG. Players are tasked with attending classes at Magic Academy while learning the mysteries of magic and the art of casting spells while building relationships with other students. As players attend classes, they’ll be immersed in a living, breathing world where time progresses as it does in the real world, and each week, player’s skills are put to the test in a new magical adventure. Using their spell casting abilities and unique interactions with other characters and their surroundings, players are confronted with puzzles and adventures that will challenge their skill.

Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times contains over 50 mysterious events and introduces a variety of unique characters. Additionally, the town in Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times is packed with all sorts of crazy characters and different locations to make purchases. While the majority of the people in town are students, each with their own personality, there are a number of others who live and work in town. Here’s a guide to just a few of those people, what they do and where you can spend your hard earned Ritch, the currency gained within the game.

“Nintendo holds the publishing rights to ‘Fatal Frame Wii,’ which was developed by Tecmo LTD. and Grasshopper Manufacture and released in Japan on July 31, 2008. Nintendo of America has since then decided not to publish the title in North America – consequently, the title will not be released in this territory. As the owner of the IP, Tecmo feels very unfortunate that the fans of the series in North America will not have a chance to play the game, but respects the final decision made by Nintendo of America.” – Tecmo spokesperson

Looks like something fishy is going on here. You may remember that Reggie Fils-Aime stated a few months back that Nintendo “is not the publisher” of Fatal Frame IV in North America. But apparently, the onus is all on them to see the game come stateside. All I can say is – There will be some very disappointed Nintendo fans if this game doesn’t see a North American release – myself included!

It was announced a few months ago that the Wii would soon be receiving a video service from the big N. Now Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has expressed possible interest in extending the service to the DS and has reaffirmed that it may arrive in overseas territories.

“If the Wii and the DS are connected, it should be possible to download video through the Wii and take it with you on the DS…When the service begins, you’ll see how we’re going to do it differently in a Nintendo-like way. There are a lot of on-demand video services, so there’s no reason to do the same thing, so we’re going to do something different. We’ll start the service in Japan, and if it does well, we’d like to take it overseas. [Nintendo wants to make the Wii] something that people will turn on even if they don’t have a purpose in mind. We’re not there yet though, and there are a lot of things we have to do to achieve that.”

NEW YORK, NY, April 7, 2009 -Vogster Entertainment, an international developer and publisher of interactive entertainment, today announced a new addition to its critically acclaimed, robot warfare-themed Robocalypse™ franchise with Robocalypse – Beaver Defense. The new game is a “tower defense” style action title planned as a WiiWare™ download for Europe and North American customers in summer 2009.

“We are excited to deliver Robocalypse – Beaver Defense as a convenient and accessible WiiWare download,” said Alan Martin, Producer at Vogster Entertainment. “Written by Jay Lender (SpongeBob Squarepants™) and Micah Wright, the story is hilarious and offers a fitting back drop for this fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek game where the player must thwart the plans of a maniacal beaver.”
