Here’s the Nintendo 2DS! Wait…what?

28 Aug

nintendo 2ds

Yep, you read it right and it’s not a typo. Nintendo has really unveiled a new handheld called Nintendo 2DS! Also yes, it is exactly how you can see from the pic above, a one piece handheld device.

When we first heard the news, we immediately check the calendar, looking for an April 1st on today’s date…but not. This is real, and in our opinion pointless.

Nintendo is claiming that the new 2DS is capable of playing original DS and 3DS games in amazing…2D (you don’t say?).

Also, seems that the new portable console will be available this October in NA and Europe only for, at least, the quite cheap price of 129.99$

Here’s the official trailer.

But, what are the real differences among all the Nintendo handhelds now on the market? Here’s a sum!

New Pokémon anime follows Red and Green original games and a new Pokémon game on Wii U (?)

17 Aug

pokemon the origin anime

Following the newest trailer published by The Pokémon Company, seems like the upcoming anime series of Pokèmon will follow the original plot of the first two Game Boy games, Red and Green. The series, called The Origin will be just a spin off, but hey, finally we can get rid of Ash & Co. for a while. Enjoy the trailer.

As you can see from the trailer, it will be aired at the beginning of October in Japan.

But we’re not finished yet. Since there’s the Pokémon Game Show going on in Japan right now, we have another news…or better, rumor. In fact seems like Nintendo has some plans for a new Pokémon game, possibly on Wii U. How we know this? Well, they’re teasing this:

And here’s the entire video from where this pic has been taken (kinda nostalgic!).

So, what’s that…a long waited home console Pokémon 3D RPG?…Stay tuned!

What is SEGA Spectrum?

28 May

sega spectrum e3

The image above was posted by a NeoGAF user a while ago, but still nobody has a clue on what this mysterious SEGA Spectrum is.

For those who don’t speak Japanese, the text says “A new world of entertainment”, but it could be referred to everything. Starting with a long waited return of SEGA in the hardware market with a brand new console (which is highly unlikely) to some sort of digital platform for releasing arcade titles directly to the cabinet’s boards (similar to the one from Taito).

Everything is possible, and we’ll know the truth soon enough as the date points to June 6th, exactly during this year’s E3.

Ron Gilbert reveals Scurvy Scallywags

20 Mar

Well known game designer Ron Gilbert, father of Monkey Island, has releases new details about his next project since leaving Double Fine Production earlier this month.

Gilbert has teamed up with Clayton Kauzlaric, co-creator of DeathSpank, to develop a musical match-3 pirate RPG called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty for iOS (such a freaking long name for an app).

The designer said he has wanted to create a match-3 RPG game for a few years, but publishers indicated little demand for the genre. But now it’s the right time! After the release of The Cave, Ron last work at Double Fine, Glbert said it was time for him to move on and plot his next move.

Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG (or SSITVTDTUSS:AMMTPRPG for short) should be ready in a couple of months, but for now take a look at those screenshots.

Ovosonico signs with Sony

19 Mar

OVO_Banner_ABOUT

Today Ovosonico, an italian independent game studio founded last year by Massimo Guarini, specialized in IP Creation by designing and developing original, unconventional and artistically crafted video games characterized by a strong sense of authorship, signed a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe. SCE WWSE will be working together with Ovosonico on a new (not-yet-revealed) intellectual property.

These are words from Massimo Guarini, founder and CEO at Ovosonico, known to be a former Suda51’s Grasshopper Manifacture director:

“There has never been a better time to contribute to the growth of the video games industry. Ovosonico aims to challenge convention, to push the boundaries further and expand our medium by delivering innovative, emotionally engaging games that deeply resonate with people.
SCE Worldwide Studios Europe understands our vision and we are thrilled to partner with them. We strongly feel that they are the perfect partner for us.”

On the counterpart, Michael Denny, Senior Vice President at Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe, said:

“We’re incredibly excited to be working with such an innovative new studio as Ovosonico. It is through working with creative minds such as Massimo Guarini that ensures that the best exclusive games are only available on PlayStation and we firmly believe that this relationship will result in something special. This is the first studio we have worked with in Italy and due to the growing talent in this country; we believe the first of many.”

We are really excited about this announcement, because Guarini worked on Grasshopper Manifacture’s Shadows of the Damned as director, and we know that Suda always chooses the people to work with very wisely. By the way, we’re not very surprised about this partnership…because we had some sort of feeling when last February we saw this tweet:

So, can we expect a new IP on the upcoming PlayStation 4? We’ll see, stay tuned.

***UPDATE March 21 2013***

Sony UK teased a strange mechanic egg that seems to be the CG version of Ovosonico logo.

European trailer for Killer is Dead

8 Mar

We’ve already told you that Deep Silver will bring Killer is Dead to Europe (and XSEED to USA), and few days ago, finally something has moved. The german company released a series of trailer on YouTube, subbed in all the European languages. You can enjoy the English version below, but you can find all other languages on Deep Silver YouTube Channel.

We also remember that Deep Silver decided to put both Japanese and MULTI5 (en, fr, it, ger, spa) audio in the European version of the game, and we really appreciate this fan-driven choice.

Killer is Dead will be released worldwide on Summer 2013 on a TBA date.

A new game from Increpare is coming soon…and it’s about sausages

1 Mar

stephen's sausage roll increpare game stephen lavelle

We love all the games from Stephen Lavelle, the guy behind Increpare, because they’re possibly always the weirdest mindfucking stylish thing you can find out there. So, everytime he announce a new release (and this happens quite often) we are always overexcited!

This time the game is called Stephen’s Sausage Roll, and yep, it features a sausage…but we don’t know how or why. The only thing we know is that the game will be a puzzle, and it features also some forks. Guess we’ll find out soon.

The game has been announced via a dedicated website. Trust us, check it out
