Here's a cluster of shots from Microsoft's Xbox 360 combat game Ninety-Nine Nights, which is sure to dazzle gamers with its outstanding visuals and epic battle action.
The game is similar to such titles as Kessen and Dynasty Warriors as you control one super-warrior scything through hordes of enemies with only token back up.
The big difference though is that, thanks to the power of 360, the graphics look incredible and co-developers Q Entertainment and Phantagram have managed to fill the
Nintendo will announce a new franchise for Revolution at the annual E3 games show this May, with the goal of creating another big success story like gaming behemoths Zelda, Mario and Nintendogs.
"This year's E3 will be Revolution's coming out party", according to Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo's executive vice president of sales and marketing. In an online interview Reggie confirmed that new franchises and "a lot of information" will be uncovered at this year's event.

A Nintendo executive has started hinting that the company wants World Of Warcraft-style massively multiplayer online games to appear on its next-gen console, Revolution.
"I hope [MMOs] are really explored on this system. That's a genre, from the home console standpoint, that really hasn't been explored very well," Reggie Fils-Aime, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Nintendo of America, told CNN recently.
And while Reggie was daydreaming so publicly about getting the big N on
Will Wright, the genius (and we try not to use that word flippantly) behind Sim City and The Sims, has expressed his delight at Nintendo's Revolution controller.
"I'm really interested in Revolution and to see how the controller works out. That looks pretty cool," the founder of Maxis revealed during an online interview. "I like the idea of taking the games outside the box and into that close-body kind of space."
Revolution wasn't the only Nintendo innovation to catch Wright's eye as he said
Nintendo has seemingly set the date for when it will completely lift the lid on its intriguing next-gen console, Revolution.
In an email sent to various members of the media, recipients were told that 9 May 2006 would be the date for Nintendo's E3 media briefing at the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood, and that attendees would be able to "hear all the incredible details about Nintendo's upcoming games and hardware, including our next home console, code-named Revolution."
It was at last year's E3
Here's a duo of images for New Super Mario Bros, the platforming plumber's handheld outing, which show just how the DS touch screen will be used while smashing, stomping and leaping through the nostalgia-tastic 2D levels.
The touch screen works as a scoreboard and inventory, and you can select power-ups with the stylus for instant mushroom energy. There's also a progress bar to flag up Mario and Luigi's position in the level - great for tracking a wireless rival as you race through the levels
Tecmo producer Tomonobu Itagaki has confirmed that hibernating Xbox title Dead or Alive Code Cronus will be shifted on to Xbox 360, where its development will continue.
Speaking to Japanese magazine Famitsu, Itagaki apologised for the delay of the game and went on to explain how he simply couldn't return to its Xbox development once he'd seen the power of Xbox 360.
First announced at the Tokyo Game Show back in 2002, DOA Code Cronus has endured three years of silent development. And with

We've just obtained the first pair of shots of DS virtual pet game Nintendogs - although you can't help but think that they came up with the name first and the game design second. (What next: a fairground game called Nintendodgems?)Ahem. We first caught wind of Nintendogs at E3 in May but have had little in the way of firm details since then. As with most pet sims, you'll have to raise and look after your pooch and we wouldn't be surprised to see the game make use of the DS's built-in
