Posted on 4 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in DS, News | 0 comments
BioWare had ideas for Sonic Chronicles 2 back in the day, but the sequel never materialized. However, lead designer Miles Holmes has now shared details about what the studio had in mind for the story.
For those that never played Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood on DS, that game actually ended with a cliffhanger. The sequel would have picked up right where things left off with Eggman taking over the world, and BioWare had planned certain plot points that would leave the door open to even more games.

We all know that the all-time classic Star Wars game, Knights of the Old Republic, originally developed by BioWare, got rereleased onto Switch not that long ago as of the time of writing.

BioWare made one game for DS back in the day in the form of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. It turns out that the company was also tinkering with an exclusive entry in the Mass Effect series, but the project was ultimately scrapped.
The same team behind Sonic Chronicles was also working on something called Mass Effect: Corsair. This would have been a Star Control-inspired game set in Batarian space that ran alongside the original trilogy.
Former BioWare producer Mark Darrah told MinnMax:

EA and BioWare are bringing back the Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect Legendary Edition. While there’s no news on a Switch version at present, it’s something that hasn’t been ruled out entirely.

Portuguese retailer lists Mass Effect Trilogy for Switch
Posted on 3 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 0 comments
Portuguese retailer Gaming Replay has listed Mass Effect Trilogy for Switch. That doesn’t mean such a release is happening, but it’s interesting to speculate about the possibility.
It goes without saying that a Mass Effect Trilogy would include the series’ original three games. Gaming Replay seems to suggest an October 2020 release window – at least as a placeholder – which would probably be unlikely.
Mass Effect Trilogy has been rumored previously, but there hasn’t been any talk regarding a Switch version. If EA does happen to make an official announcement, we’ll have it here on the site.

Hello, you beautiful Shy Guys and Shy Girls! This week on NEP, please excuse Oni’s sick voice… BUT! The gang has several great discussions you’ll want to hear. This includes Best Buy leaking games allegedly via their website, which Galen provides some extra insight on, as he used to be a terrible employee back in the day. We then discuss Labo VR and muse over what future ways Labo could be used (Oni freaks over Metroid). We then get a little heavy as we find ourselves talking about the games industry and publishers capitalizing on the social phenomenon of FOMO.
Thank you for listening! Please help the show grow by sharing the podcast with someone you think might enjoy.
BioWare rules out Mass Effect Andromeda for Switch, but leaves the door open to the possibility
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 26 Comments
BioWare producer Michael Gamble is officially ruling out Mass Effect Andromeda for Switch. Gamble published an inconclusive tweet in October, but has now clarified that the game won’t be on Nintendo’s new platform – at least not initially. Gamble did leave the door open to the possibility in the future, indicating that it’s something that could happen if the fans clamor for it.
“Yeah, not right now, no. We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that.”
Several years ago, EA published Mass Effect 3 for Wii U’s launch. That was handled by Straight Right, the same team that ported Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
