In which the ever-affable Nintendo CEO sits down with the makers of Resident Evil: Revelations to discuss the game's roots in TV drama and GameCube titles...
Did you import the 3DS's controversial add-on? Now you finally have a localized game you can it on...
Cheer up, Jill - it's all better now. Or at least it will be in 24 hours' time. In the mean-time, we suggest finding yourself some shelter, a towel, and a new tailor. Anyway, here's what we're getting on the new eShop demo service in Europe and the US.
New ratings for future Rayman and Prince of Persia titles have emerged from the ever-reliable Australian Classifications Board. It's unknown whether Ubisoft's new titles for Wii and 3DS will be Virtual Console rereleases or entirely new adventures, but either way, ain't much crap in those series' backlogs...
Rayman creator Michel Ancel
is flattered by labels like “The French Miyamoto,” but says that as far
as he's concerned, the Mario games haven't
been an influence on his signature series at all. In fact, the designer says
he's not a fan of Nintendo's mascot: “I understand that people love it,
but it's not my cup of tea.” Yeah, well, Shigeru Miyamoto wasn't
too hot on Beyond Good & Evil either...
With Nintendo’s Mario-heavy game barrage on the 3DS this
holiday, the system is finally starting to get some real titles for a change.
That trend seems to continue in the new year with releases like Metal Gear Solid 3D,
Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Tales of the Abyss scheduled for early 2012, but the
standout is probably Resident Evil Revelations. The full-fledged original
Resident Evil adventure featuring franchise stars Chris Redfield and Jill
Valentine involves zombies and a giant boat, but this trailer delves a bit
deeper into its background…
We’ve accepted that the 3DS has an add-on for a second
thumbstick called the Circle Pad Pro, we just wish Nintendo of
America would admit it’s coming here. First announced in Japan to the befuddled
internet, the Circle Pad has been treated with mystery outside of Japan. Now at
least one other area of Nintendo has something concrete, and the European
branch of the N says the add-on comes out January 27...
We know all you have on your minds today focuses on Warfare that's Modern,
but if you get tired of World War III and need colorful cartoon people to unwind,
tomorrow you’ll get an early taste of next week’s release of Rayman Origins.
Maybe you’ve seen gameplay from it before, but were confused about the game’s
story, so today’s launch trailer for Origins makes things a little clearer.
Though we’re less clear on why this launch trailer was released a week before
the actual launch…
Resident Evil's first outing on the 3DS was met with a less than enthusiastic response from gamers, but it did one thing really well: proved that a Resident Evil title is possible on the 3DS.
Apparently the lukewarm response was enough for Capcom to think that
fans are excited enough for their next Resident Evil game, Resident Evil
Revelations, to charge $10 more than the typical going rate for 3DS
games, and that's without the optional (see: likely makes the game a lot
better) $10 Circle Pad...
Resident Evil’s 15th anniversary
is in full swing, with HD remakes
and release dates for Operation Raccoon City,
and things are also picking up for handheld survival horror too. The February 7
release of Resident Evil Revelations for 3DS is getting ever closer, and a
whole new co-op mode got revealed for it today, along with confirmation Capcom
learned from at least a few of its mistakes with The Mercenaries 3D.
