Posted 10 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 0 comments
When asked about the likelihood of bringing Kizuna over to North America, an XSEED Games representative explained that the company “will definitely look into it.” So, it looks as though XSEED is interested in releasing the game in other territories. Kizuna has already received accolades for its art style. The title is set to release this Winter in Japan.
Free Radical asking fans where they want TimeSplitters 4
Posted 10 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 10 Comments
TimeSplitters 4 could truly end up on any console. The previous TimeSplitters title ended up on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube, so it is more than likely that Free Radical will follow up with a 360, PS3, and Wii release for TimeSplitters 4. However, Free Radical wants to know what the fans are interested in – A poll is up and running on the company’s website and is asking which console people wish to play the next TimeSplitters game on. As of the time of writing, the Wii is leading the poll with 65% while the PS3 and 360 are trailing with about 15% each. This poll could end up as being superfluous if Free Radical makes the decision to release TimeSplitters 4 on all platforms, but it would be interesting to know if the results will influence the development of the game in one way or another.
Thanks to Fernando for the news tip!
Nintendo provides hard drive enabled Wii to hospital children
Posted 10 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 4 Comments
A Wii hard drive has been something that consistent Wii downloaders have been begging for, but did you know that Nintendo has created a HDD-enabled Wii already? Nintendo and the Starlight Foundation for the Youth have teamed up and are providing numerous hospitals with unique Wii units. These systems are different that the average Wii, in the sense that they not only come with a hard drive, but they also store full games. So that means hits such as Super Mario Galaxy, Zack and Wiki, Twilight Princess, and more are all available on these special Wii units.
This graph pretty much speaks for itself. I suppose developers are beginning to see that the Wii is a viable platform that is capable of handling games with high-quality. Let’s jut hope that this trend will continue into next year.
– Port creatures from first Spectrobes game
– DGamer support
– Spectrobes website being launched – updated by data that users load from their DS
– Individual player achievements, community achievements (ex: be part of first 10,000 to upload data during the game’s release)
– Global + local Wi-Fi matches
– Sell Spectrobe creatures online, users set their own values
Nintendo October conference confirmed

“In terms of the press conference, its content and announcements are still being finalized so we are not announcing anything at this time.” – Nintendo statement
So, all doubts about the conference’s existence can finally be put to rest. I just hope that Nintendo will be able to match the quality of surprises and excitement as they did last year – Monster Hunter 3 on Wii, DS demos, Fire Emblem DS, and WiiWare’s launch date were all spectacular announcements.
1 DS, 2 Wii announcements coming from Marvelous soon
Jimmy Soga, PR agent of XSEED Games, has stated that Marvelous Entertainment USA will be co-publishing three unannounced titles for the North American market. One of these games is for the Wii and will be revealed before the end of September. Also, there are two DS announcements which should be known by the time TGS rolls by. There are plenty of realistic options that the announcements could be related to, but we’ll know for sure very soon.
Small update: Not too much information to share, but it looks like this game, Sorcery Blade, is from Kemco and is a new entry in what is a slew of mobile RPG titles. Also, the Wii controller is apparently utilized for attacking in real-time.
I couldn’t help but post this because it’s an RPG and it’s for WiiWare. There are plenty of great games available on the Shop Channel for download, although I’d really love to soak some hours into a RPG…This game could be my fix.
