Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle coming to Europe and USA in 2014

19 Sep

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

FUCK YEAH! Just fuck yeah! We all were so excited and so sad at the same time for the Japanese exclusivity of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle when it came out almost a month ago, but now we can be happy again!

Indeed, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle is headed to North America and Europe sometime in 2014, Namco Bandai announced at its pre-TGS showcase earlier today.

Also CyberConnect2 president and CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama said that the localized version of the game will be on par with the Japanese version’s character balance:

“We are still making character adjustments – even in the Japanese version – based on the feedback that we’re getting from fans. All of that feedback will be implemented in the overseas [version].”

Poor sales for Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Wii U in Japan

15 Aug

yakuza 1 & 2 HD wii U

We got bad news guys, especially for you Wii U owners and/or Yakuza fans. In fact last week SEGA released its Yakuza 1 & 2 HD remake on the Wii U in Japan, and that’s good, but guess what…sells aren’t going as expected.

Maybe it’s more appropriate say that the first instalation of the Yakuza saga outside a Sony console is facing proper poor sales; the game didn’t even make in the top 50 chart of the week, selling barely 1800 copies. Yes, just 1800 copies, in Japan.

You already know where we are going to say, right? We can now only assume the worst for the series’ future in the West, starting with no hope for an outside-Japan release of this remake and moreover, not many chances to see Yakuza 5 localized. Why? Well, if the series doesn’t sell in Japan, how can it sell in USA and Europe?

Taiwan will get a super limited Doraemon 3DS

14 Aug

taiwan nintendo 3ds doraemon limited editionWe’re used to incredible super cool (and rare) limited edition consoles come from Japan, but sometimes things are different. This is the case of the above Limited Edition Doraemon Nintendo 3DS that is going to be “released” in Taiwan only.

Actually, is not even going to be released. In fact, Nintendo is localising the game Doraemon: Nobita’s Number Adventure in Taiwan, and to mark the game release, is also holding some sort of contest, in which the prizes are five of these wonderful handhelds.

So yes, this is going to be quite a rare console…prepare your wallets collectors.

The 3DS is getting a lot of attentions lately, not just for Nintendo games, but also for licensed titles. So be happy all you pirates wanna-be, because we got quite a lot of good news for you!

Wonderful 101 looks fantastic!

27 Jul

wonderful 101

Today we’ve been to London’s Hyper Japan Summer 2013 (even if with all the rain we took it didn’t look like summer, but hey…finally some chilly temperatures!) and finally we managed to get our greedy hands on one of our most hyped Wii U games of this year, also because, along with Pikmin 3, it is the only remarkable release set for 2013 on the Nintendo’s home console.

We are abviously talking about Wonderful 101, the next big game from Platinum Games, exclusive for Wii U, directed by Hideki “bad boy” Kamiya and produced by Atsushi Inaba.

Unfortunately, like all third-party-Nintendo-console-exclusive, the game isn’t getting the right attention from the media (or from Nintendo, you decide), and that’s a real shame, because we all know how good Platinum games are (ehm…Bayonetta…ehm…Metal Gear Rising), and this is no exception.

We played the only level available at the event, but immediately it seamed pure gold. From the graphics to the gameplay, from the character design to the use of Wii U gamepad touchscreen, everything felt super right. Sure, we didn’t play enough to write a proper preview, that’s why we’re talking about feeling…but hey…we play since we’re born and sometimes we still get it right.

Want a hint? Buy it! Also because it will probably the only good thing to play on Wii U till 2014.
