After approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court this past Thursday, Atari is preparing to enter the world of business again after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy back in January of 2013. The company (Atari Inc.) will get $3.4 million from its parent company (Atari S.A.) to get it out of bankruptcy, and then another $1.75 million to restart operations and try to turn a profit. No specific plans have been revealed for what they might do differently this time around, but we’ll likely hear news soon enough.

Did you know that Nintendo’s head honcho is celebrating a birthday today? Yup: it’s now December 6 in Japan, which happens to be the day when president Satoru Iwata was born. Iwata is now 54 years-old.

Ubisoft has sent out a new Assassin’s Creed-related survey which may give some insight into what kind of ideas the publisher is considering for the franchise as well as a potential pirate spinoff.

One question asks of an original pirates title, “In such a game, what would be the most important elements among these below?” Customizable pirate character, ship, and hideout, a deeper economy, and additional activities at sea or on land are listed as choices. The survey also asks if participants would like to “sail and fight with my friends” and “sail and fight with other players.”

Specifically regarding Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft asks if players would be interested in seeing a new modern day hero and more high-level subjects, such as desired gameplay improvements and historical settings.


The latest addition in the Iwata Asks series focuses on the Fit Meter, a device used in conjunction with Wii Fit U. You can check out the full discussion here. The interview features Nintendo president Satoru Iwata as well as various developers that assisted with the Fit Meter’s development.
