E3 PREDICTION: Nintendo

Nintendo_Logo

  • Mario Maker (recently spotted)
  • New Zelda
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Majora’s Mask remake 3DS
  • Yarn Yoshi
  • Smash Brothers
  • Metroid
  • They patented something the other week – whatever that turns out to be
  • Xenoblade will get a name
  • Gamecube games will be made available for download which ties in with the discontinuation of the current Wii U in japan, to make way for something with a large on board storage.  I’d like for it to be called the Wii cUbe but that’s never going to happen
  • SMT x Fire Emblem

I”ll update this post with what actually happened later

NEWS: Project X Zone

As this is coming in via a touchscreen mobile phone on my lunch break expect a lot of this to either not make sense or be displayed ridiculously.

Project X Zone is another cross over title that features well known characters from some of the biggest franchises on the planet.  From Space Channel 5 from Sega through Resident Evil from Capcom and out the other side to Tekken from Namco, Project X Zone takes all your favourite characters and drops them into a really well worked RPG for the 3DS.

Namco Bandai seem to be habitually making my life right now.

I hoped.

NEWS: Ghostlight Announce More SMT for PAL

On 19/04/2012 Ghostlight games announced that more Shin Megami Tensei goodness will be making its way across the pond and into our DS’s and 3DS’s in the form of Devil Survivor 2 and the remastered prequel, Devil Survivor Overclocked.

Ghostlight have been working hard over the past couple of weeks with a flurry of other news in the form of PSN releases for the PS2 Devil Summoner games and also the upcoming release of Fate/Extra on the PSP shown below.

Where will the JRPG madness end?  Let’s hope it doesn’t because guys, you are saving me money on import tax.  Good work.
