I dunno about those other things, but we've known about Dillon since E3 2011.



I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.

Check out Ohga Shrugs!

Love and tolerate.

Did it not have that ni no kuni game as well? Or whatever that Wii game was? I forget now, dont think it did too well anyways in Japan.

Never knew about that. Etrian Oddysey leaked a few days before too, but it was supposed to be show here for the first time, I believe.

The Last Story: Second Most Wished For Title on Amazon
By Breana Melvin on April 19, 2012 9:21 PM | Permalink | 8 Comments
laststory.jpg As of this month all three Operation Rainfall titles have made it as far west as Europe. Xenoblade Chronicles has finally reached North America, The Last Story will be here this summer, and Pandora's Tower has yet to be confirmed.

With the movement maintaining momentum for nine months, there's no doubt that there is a large amount of anticipation for these RPGs in the Nintendo gaming world.

This excitement is reflected on Amazon, which has Mistwalker/XSEED's The Last Story ranked in as the second 'Most Wished for' title this week.

The game comes in second only to Diablo III, beating out big names such as Assassin's Creed III and The Last of Us.

While I was never very interested in Xenoblade, and recent reviews for Pandora's Tower have made be wary, I am nothing short of excited for Sakaguchi's latest RPG.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl - fan-made Project M team discusses the project
"Project M started as a hobby to try to replicate Falco's functionality from Melee inside of Brawl. Since then, the scope of the project increased greatly. Interest in the project exploded into an international effort across more than ten countries, with over twenty people working on it on a daily basis.

For the most part, development is a closed-doors private project. Our efforts are worldwide, with members of our team present in US, EU, and Japan developing a product for each market. While a vast majority of the content included in Project M is done by our developers, we've also received permission to include impressive work done by other individuals who modify the game independently as well." - Project M dev team

Project X Zone: Everything We Know

From confirmed characters to early game details - here's everything we know so far about Project X Zone.

April 18, 2012

LATEST IMAGES

It's an exciting time to be a 3DS owner. In addition to the 3DS's hot summer lineup, as well as all the titles still in the works (Luigi's Manson, Paper Mario, Animal Crossing 3DS, Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, Smash Bros. and so on), we also have Project X Zone to look forward to.

In case you missed the big Project X Zone reveal last week, this 3DS strategy RPG is an epic collaboration between three of the biggest publishers in Japan: Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai. While details are still relatively slim, what we've learned so far is quite exciting. Below you'll find all the early details we know about the game, followed by the confirmed characters that each company will be contributing (complete with character art and screenshots). Prepare to be very, very excited.

Basic Details
As mentioned, Project X Zone is a collaboration between Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai. This strategy RPG will have notable characters from each company's biggest franchises fighting in pairs (Chris fighting with Jill and X teaming with Zero, for instance). Each character will perform moves fans should recognize from their respective games. For example, you can count on both Ryu and Ken pulling off their fair share of Hadoukens in this adventure. Below you'll find the game's Japanese logo.

The developers have already confirmed that the character roster (currently at 26, with about eight or nine characters per company) is not final, and will be expanded to include more secret and unlockable characters.
Those who do not lend themselves well to the strategy RPG style of combat will apparently still fight, just in a way that fans might expect from that specific character.

As you can see in the image above, it looks like the game will find some way to mix the worlds of all these characters into one continuity. In the center we see Colby's Movie Land from Dead Rising's Paradise Plaza (perhaps a hint that Frank West is one of the unannounced characters?), as well as the Chattes Noires night club from Sakura Wars. We still don't know when this game will hit Japanese store shelves, nor has a global release been confirmed, but more information is expected to arrive in the coming weeks.

Now onto the roster! Let's start with Capcom…




Chris and Jill

Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine join the Project X Zone ranks as representatives of Capcom's classic survival horror franchise, Resident Evil. Full character art still hasn't yet been released for Jill, but you can see her in-game depiction in the screenshots below. You can also see an Ooze from Resident Evil Revelations oozing it up in the second screen, as well as Jill using Revelation's Genesis scanner in the last one.






Dante and Demitri



Up next we have Dante from Devil May Cry, pairing up with Demitri Maximoff from Darkstalkers. How cool is that?! It looks like this unlikely duo is going up against a Marionette, care of the DMC universe.




Ryu and Ken



Here we have fighters Ryu and Ken jumping in for the Street Fighter franchise. The screens below show them pulling off signature moves like the Hadouken, Shoryuken and Tatsumaki.













X and Zero



Last, though certainly not least, Capcom is offering up X and Zero from the Mega Man X series. The screens show X using his signature Mega Buster while Zero kicks ass with his Z-Saber. The two are going up against a giant Mettaur.







Head on over to page 2 for a look at the SEGA characters confirmed for Project X Zone, and then to page 3 for the Namco Bandai characters!



I should have left off with the brilliant post above, but I will not.

 

 

There was a Good Super Mario Bros. Movie. Let’s Watch it!

When someone talks about the Super Mario Bros. movie, you'd be forgiven for assuming they're talking about the 1993 live-action flick starring Bob Hoskins. But there are actually two Super Mario Bros. movies, the first one - a feature-length anime - having been released in Japan in 1986.

It was called スーパー マリオ ブラザーズ ピーチ姫救出大作戦! (The Great Mission to Save Princess Peach!) and, compared to both the 1993 movie and its home-grown syndicated sibling, wasn't too bad!

The plot of the film is pretty standard stuff. Two plumbers (who for some reason are working at a grocery store) get sucked into a video game world, starring just about every bad guy from the franchise you can think of, and have to save a Princess (and kick Bowser's ass) while they're in there.

Spoilers: they save the day. Fun fact: the movie also foreshadows perhaps Mario's greatest ever boss encounter, as Mario 64's "grab Bowser by the tail" move actually makes its debut in Great Mission. It had decent animation, a nice "covers all bases" plot (in terms of getting all the game's characters and locations in) and some pub-trivia-esque voice actors, including Mario being Sega Rally 2's narrator and Luigi being, awesomely, Telemachus from Ulysses 31.

What's more interesting is what's become of the movie in the years since. Despite being released at perhaps the peak of Mario-mania, featuring renowned voice actors and doing pretty well during its theatrical run in Japan (it even had its own extensive line of cash-in products), by 2012 the film way as well have never existed.

It was released once on VHS in Japan, and that was it. No international release. No DVD release. Nothing. Unless you want to pay a mint for a Japanese video cassette, in fact, the only way you're going to be able to watch it at all is on YouTube (and, well, right here, right now).

So thanks, Akua1997, for not only uploading the movie, but for providing English-language subs so we can actually understand what the hell is going on!
