Here’s a video by Nintendo of Japan comparing the upcoming The Legend Of Zelda Wind Waker HD for Wii U to the old, non-HD, GameCube one. Let’s see all the big improvements they made.

Zone of the Enders HD is finally in proper HD (but just on PS3)

When Zone of the Enders HD collection came out it was everything but a proper HD. In fact, even Kojima complained about the poor improvements made on his games, promising a new version soon. Well, they didn’t make a bran new version, instead Konami gave the game to japanese developer Hexa Drive, that patched the game in true HD. Below you can find some comparisons between the game before the patch and after.

Shenmue 3 will be released by the end of 2014

shenmue 3

Yep, we can’t believe it too, but IT IS REAL! Yu Suzuki, after all the false news and the never started Kickstarter campaign, just announced that he found a private funder for the long-waited Shenmue 3!

Thanks to this mysterious benefactor, Suzuki has been able to buy all the unused rights of the Shenmue franchise from SEGA (we’re wondering for how much) and finally get to work on the new chapter of the saga. There are still no details about the development team and/or the precise release timing, but the Japanese designere confirmed that the game will be ready by the end of 2014 and it will be released on the current generation consoles (no words about the Wii U).

Suzuki also said that he’s recruiting talented people for the project, and that he will publish a proper press release, including all contact info for joining Team Shenmue.

So, the wait is over (oh well, it’s yet started) and the game that everybody wants is finally becoming real! Stay tuned for more upcoming infos in the next days.

A couple of days ago DREAMCASTER’s Tube uploaded a very interesting video on their YouTube channel. Indeed the video shows how the Dreamcast would look like in HD 1080p.

Obviously this definition has been reached through an emulator and not the real console. But still, some games are really amazing and the details are astonishing! Enjoy!

Yep, you heard it so many times in the past twelve years, but everytime it was just bullshit…probably also this time, but still, here is your news about a possible making of long-waited Shenmue 3.

Indeed seems that Yu Suzuki, acclaimed developer of the Shenmue franchise for SEGA, is seriously thinking about a Kickstarter project to fund the development of Shenmue 3. The news comes from Sebastien Abdelhamid, a french journalist for CANAL+ , that met Suzuki at the Monaco Anime Game Show. Here’s the tweet about the rumor.

(TRANSLATION: Yu Suzuki just said that he is thinking about a Kickstarter to fund the Shenmue 3 developement ! #MAGS)

We don’t know if this will really happen, but we hope so…still, we are a bit worried about SEGA and its ownership of all the copyrights for the franchise.

Stay tuned!

This is how an HD first person Mario game looks like

25 Feb

Earlier today we talked about Freddie Wong and his upcoming VGHS season 2 project, but now we want to share with you a (not-so) little gem he made and uploaded on his YouTube Channel.

It is called First Person Mario: Endgame, and after 50 days of rendering (yup, fifty fucking days of video rendering), it shows how an HD first person Mario game would be. The video is based on an actual game lavel of Super Mario Bros. 3 and appears to be generated from an actual replay of someone playing the game (you can see the 2D map on the upper right). IT IS JUST STUNNING (oh look at that Bowser!).
