“Although some of these games may slip beyond Christmas, as far as we know just now Wii gamers can look forward to the likes of Animal Crossing: City Folk, Guitar Hero: World Tour, Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels, Wii Music, WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2009, Sonic Unleashed, Shaun White Snowboarding, Call Of Duty 5, Tomb Raider Underworld, MySims Kingdom, Dead Rising, Skate It, Rayman Raving Rabbids 3 and maybe a few other surprises that some big developers may still have up their sleeve (wink, wink).”

Nintendo’s conference – actually, two events – are scheduled to happen on October 2nd. Last year, Nintendo had some humungous announcements, although the North American conference was arguably not as big. However, I think that there could definitely be something in the pipeline…Perhaps not for this year, but early next year. Pikmin footage and release date, anyone? Or, how about if Reggie were to come bursting out onto a stage in a Link costume with a sword and shield?

Capcom has confirmed that Mega Man 9 will be available next week on the Wii Shop Channel. As far as the release of the game on other download networks, Mega Man 9 will be up on PSN September 25th while XBLA users will have to wait until October 1st. Unfortunately, these dates are for North America only. I’d assume that the game will be heading to other territories in due time, though.

“It’s definitely something that we have been thinking about. We always want to keep the game fresh, so the ideas that we’ve got for taking it to other platforms…it’ll be a very different experience from what you’re seeing on Wii. If we are going to be taking it to another platform, we’d be looking at a very different experience, and of course using the massive power that a next gen platform could offer.” – Nick Hagger, de Blob producer

If there is an actual advantage of putting out de Blob on other platforms, I don’t personally have a problem with it. I do think it would be a big blow to the Wii since it’s a big third-party title, but my motto is that if it will work well somewhere else, why not share the wealth? However, it seems that the Wii controller is a perfect fit for de Blob. Would the controls of a PS3/360 version of the game be beneficial?

Update: Alright, I’ve uploaded a few more pictures. The last five images are the new ones I put up on the site.

So I received my issue of Nintendo Power and have taken some screenshots of GTA: Chinatown Wars that seemed to have been missed before. Some are partial duplicates (I think there are one or two of those). Other than that, these screens haven’t been posted for. And I’ll try to update the photos later because I realize that one picture or so is slightly dark. Also, I’ll have two or so more photos that didn’t come out so well in a bit.

A new Metal Gear Solid has been discovered from the Japanese Trademark database, “Metal Gear Solid Existence.” Of course, this trademark could be nothing at all. It might not be a game, it might not be a new game, and even if it is, it could easily be non-related to Nintendo platforms. Still, one can’t help but wonder that if this is a new Metal Gear Solid Game, would there be any chance of it being for the Wii or DS?
