While everybody seems to be orgasming over Brawl today (me included), this little piece of news seems to have been a little overlooked.

Kirby Ultra Super Deluxe announced, DS remake of SNES' Kirby Super Star.

According to ye olde wiki it will have Wi-Fi CoOp Mode.

The Halberd's design seems to have been a little brawl-ed, heheh.

EDIT: Ooopsie, never mind, little timeline. >.<
Great to learn about it anyway. ^_^U

Irem and Hammerin' Harry return to PSP! Ikuze Gensan!!

I liked the original arcade a lot, but I didn't like all of the console ports and spinnoffs they did afterwards. The original was hard as hell, I remember I witnessed someone 1c it in front of me and I just couldn't believe it.

I wish them the best but between BlazBlue and Capcom's new fighting game offerings SNKP is really going to have its work cut out for it.

EDITED TO INCLUDE SOMETHING BESIDES JUST ME BEING SNARKY: I haven't heard this bit of conjecture before, but Marvel might set up their own game division. Considering how interested the company is in controlling all aspects of their IP's that idea doesn't seem all that far-fetched.

I'm not sure where to put it, but I really, really would hate to own an arcade business in Japan this year :

3/4 Gundam vs Gundam
3/14 Arcana Heart 2
3/18 KOF98UM
4? Sengoku BASARA X
4? Samurai Spirits Sen
6? Fate Unlimited codes
6? Drum Mania V5
6? Guitar Freaks V5
6? Lord of Vermillion (Road ? that SquarE game)
summer Melty Blood Actress Again
7? Street Fighter 4
11? Blablue

Plus some random doujin game I may have forgotten.
There won't be enough people to play all this, and not enough business to buy all this...

The first victim of this rush might very well be Arcana 2 : a rumour states that the Sega and Namco centers wouldn't buy it. Too bad, because the game seems to enhance greatly the first one (and not FULL, interestingly). And the combos are much shorter.
I hope I hope I hope this won't become another TRF2. I'm eager to study all the combinations with all the new arcanas.

Basara and Samusupi don't seem to have a lot of chances to survive the onslaught either. I can't decide for 98UM : will it fail miserably or will it allow SNK to survive until KOFXII is released ?

Either way Gundam and Fate/ should win the first 3 month, then it's up to SF4.

Tough year.

Yeah, this is weird, I don't get if somehow the developers just realized that there ARE people who still like arcade games, especially of a 2D variety, or what. There's not really much accounting for this new surge, to my mind, especially when the scene in 2006 was still basically the standby Capcom and Sammy games from a few years back.

Dang it, nobody told me it was time to switch avatars.

The idea that there is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to fighting games is a strange turnaround. Is there even enough arcades that would appeal to fighting game fans left in Japan to support this surge? While I'm sure that the Japanese arcade scene is a bit better off than their flat-lining American counterparts how many of them are now soley based around crane games or the like?

While I'm certain that not every one of these games is going to survive I do wonder if some of these titles -such as Basara and SF4- are being used more as advertisments for the home release than anything. I also like that no one believes that KoF XII is going to come out in 2008.

Crane games and Mah Jong will never die! In all seriousness, they probably won't. But in 06 Guilty Gear, 3S, Soul Calibur 3 Mildly Less Terrible Edition, Tekken5/6(forget, lost since 3), and Zero 3 (seriously) still seemed like among the most attractive choices, so clearly it's time for something new, but it seems like it's been time for something new since, say, 2004 at least? Is 2D interest on the rise? I really don't get what's going on in 2008.

Yeah, sorry. With the AOU, I forgot for several hours that Vampire was the greatest series ever, and I vowed to never let that happen again.

That's the problem. The times are harsh since 2001, then with the Atomiswave's travesty, and now things have been even worse with the release of the Wii. I don't know where this is going, but it seems like the '98 bubble, except the fighting game scene is ten times smaller. I really don't understand.

Basara is especially an interesting subject in that it aims for a totally different demography : the yaoi fangirls. If they manage to attract them, then they can survive since their public is essentially different from the other's. It might be a good idea for the arcades to buy one, to have a wider offer.
But the game is sooooo late... It could have worked if it had been released last autumn. Now...
The problem with yaoi fangirls is that they fall in love with something new every ten seconds. I'm not sure there will be much Motochika X whoever next summer.

Maybe if the disparate nerd demographics can be united at each location, the resulting increase in nerd population will have a snowballing effect in spending at the arcades.

Or maybe they'll start getting together, then getting married and having children, and find that with so much time devoted to their jobs and their family, the best avenue for their entertainment for the whole family is the Wii, and all returns to nothing.

I'm betting that BASARA X will probably end up on the Wii and PS2 alike, just like its "predecessors" (in different respects), GG:AC and HEROES did so last year. That much is pretty much definite.

Any way, I'm still willing to bet that things will probably work out, even for supposedly "lower-tiered" games like SBX, KOF:UM, Akatsuki and SSS. For the first time in a long while, arcade-goers will actually have multiple things to look forward to over the course of Golden Week and the Summer months, times which usually are dry, utterly-boring months. Instead of going to the arcades, and only having old crap to play, now they got a whole bunch of new stuff to play! There's gotta be SOME THING that will attract everyone. :D

If nothing else, this plethora of arcade gaming will hopefully do more to stimulate the business for at least a good spell. And furthermore, the "big guns" that everyone is waiting to see more of still won't arrive until a number of months down the road.

"KOF MIA 2 is not dead (yet)" , posted Sat 23 Feb 00:51post reply

So, I was feeling naughty and I was thinking "let's make fun of Falcoon".

Turns out the game is announced for summer. Yes, against SF4. I LOLed.

As for the characters, two are mentioned on the side storis published on MIA's site : Andy on one hand, A NEW CHARACTER who happens to be... Joe's student on the other. Female student. A new female Thai fighter beside king ? The equivalent to Kim's Chae Lim ?
Who knows. Also, nothing says they will be in the game, maybe they only have a role in the scenario (and we all know what MIA's scenario is worth).
There were other characters as well (including a pathetic scene with Ninon talking to Goenitz's ghost) but these two seem the most important.

Also, we know one (some ?) characters will be from RyŻkŰ no Ken, and rumor on the street say TŰdŰ would be the first (or the only one)(with maybe Kasumi as a copypasta).

At some point SNK could put out a game populated with nothing but young female versions of previously established characters. She-Joe, Leona, Kasumi, Rock... they could all be in there.

Yes, I know it's easy to make fun of the MI series and the addition of Andy isn't helping matters. Still, unlike SS Sen, I'm certain the game will at least be playable on a fun, silly level.

You know I was JUST THINKING about Muy Thai representation for MI since that was still missing. I was figuring King would be the best bet since I;m sure Falcoon would just LOVE to get her out of her business suit and intro something with more fanservice.

But a female student of Joe's? That just sounds incredibly odd, not to mention repetitive as it's just the same thing as Chae. But Chae actually made sense as Kim isn't a ladies man (unless she was some goofy fan or something and resembled MKomoko, that I could see). I was also hoping for Joe to see some Joe/Lily interaction. I mean are they still dating?

So I do fear that in March Gundam Vs Gundam will swallow Arcana 2 and KOF98...KOF98 will be safe due to his presence in the next tougeki, but still...

Then in April SS Sen et Basara will keep the player warm, but nothing much ...

in summer KOFMIA2 et SF4 will as I said negate each other and melty blood will survive due to his fan crowd...

Finaly it KOF 12 that will get all the "place" he need when he'll be out...
At least I thtink that thing may happen like this...

Soul Calibur IV is slated for a June release. Tekken 6 has no exact release date, although US video game shop/conglomerate of evil and tyranny Gamestop/EB lists this game as a November 28th release.

If I were a betting man, I would say that Tekken 6 will be released for the PS3 in Japan in about 3 months time. And if I were a betting man, I would have no money to pay for my bets, so I would end up an indentured servant to someone who preys on betting men. And praise Jeebus I'm not a betting man...

Yes, for me first Maximo was good,too. But if they referring MAximo vs. Army of Zin that was bad. Really, it sucks. I dont know how they achieved that but it sucked.

I dont know whether FF:Streetwise sucked or not cause I didnt care to play the rest.

Double post for Persona-ness -which piques mny interest ever since ifrit_crisis showed me P3 ^_^-

Persona 4 announced for PS2, seems they're going for the direct sequel approach (at least gameplay and presentation-wise, dunno about the plot).

First Famitsu scans:

Some points someone brought up (can't give sources as where I got it from don't give 'em)
quote:
- Trailer on DVD
- July 10th release
- 85% Complete
- Looks like Persona 3 but better
- 180+ Personas
- Hashino is directing, Soejima is art director and character designer, Meguro is composing

- Takes place in the countryside, a more nostalgic environment
- The theme is murder mystery/suspense, it's a mystery thriller with twists and turns
- Multiple endings
- 1.5x the size of P3
- 60-70 hours
- There is a weather forecast system, and whenever there is a fog, a murder occurs.


So it's weather this time instead of moon phase, Japanese mythology-inspired Personas (Izanagi, Tomoe, Jiraiya) instead of Tarot, more realistic, present day looking ambientation... And the "dating sim" part seems to cover all of the town instead of just the school?

But perhaps the most curious thing is that now personas are summoned not through firing a gun but... wearing glasses? Guess they clearly don't want any polemics this time... ^_^U

P3 IS TAKING ME FOREVER TO COMPLETE.I've played 81 hours and I am still in December . While I enjoy it, the S.Link system sometimes bothers me. Besides that, P4 looks nice( even though the main character has lame hair)! The weather system seems neat and I wonder if you can control your party in battle ( one of the in-battle screens shows one of the secondary characters interface/HP-MP thing highlighted with the word COMMAND under it )

Finally first pics on Persona 4!!

The premise really looks really interesting.

On the one hand, I like the direction they have given to the characters. While looking pretty plain, I'm sure that they will be well-built, with complexities and lights and shadows. And this apparent plainness on the surface suits with the rural setting this time around, as opposed to the urban vibes of the P3 characters.

In my opinion, the timing of the events in P3 was very skillfully set, and this, I hope, will be an axiom on how the plot on P4 will unfold intelligently. This is a key point in a mystery/murder plot premise, and I have high expectations on this one from my experience with P3.

On the other hand, this issue about glasses sure is... striking, to say the least. I was really sure that they would come up with something even more farfetched and controversial than the guns in P3, but this thing about glasses is... well, for the moment I'll say that it is a pretty clichť idea (some people who can see whatever for whatever reasons that most people does not detect). However, this will give the opportunity to all those closet meganekko lovers will have a great time being able to put glasses on all the characters not seen since the likes of Biko 3.

Looking forward to more info on it!

I can agree with this, but that's about it. I want to be hopeful, but look. LOOK.

We have a cool hero, a buddy guy character and a semi-spunky girl. Could there be a worse start?

It's looking like Persona 3 all over again. I tolerated the changes in P3...I even enjoyed a lot of them, but having finished the game now, I can't call it anything other than a complete insult to Persona. The game was crushed under the weight of its own mediocre writing.

The characters barely had an hours worth of development in them, let alone 100, but the game just plows on with pages and pages of text from people who don't have anything good to say. This could have been saved if the social link scenarios were interesting, or required any thought from a gameplay perspective. But no... you max out your personality stats by halfway through the game and still have 40-50 hours of 1-dimensional characters in meaningless scenarios to sit through.

I admit, I've seen worse writing and worse characters than in P3, but it's about as far from my ideal model as you can get and still have me pick the game up.

When I finished Persona 3, I felt like calling it "Persona 3" was a much greater insult than it would have been calling the first Persona "SMT 3".

Ah, but on the bright side, even if I'm not excited about the characters behind them, the designs look great, the world looks good, the concept seems solid enough and I'm sure the music and cut-scenes will be awesome.

EDIT: And if it's shorter than P3, that's good too.

EA wants Take-Two.

Take-Two is the developers of games such as Grand Theft Auto series and the Sega's 2k sports. It seems that EA is trying to do a hostile take over on Take-Two.

In my opinion, other than "FUCK EA," is that EA wants to buy them out before the next Grand Theft Auto comes out, reap in sales, and then close the studio.

This reminds me of Microsoft's supposed one billion dollar bid for Epic Games, which Epic promptly laughed off. I think these big companies just like to occasionally dangle their hooks and see if any fish bite. It doesn't cost anything to throw around numbers, and it's free press once the journalists start treating it like news.

quote:

It would be rather ironic if EA could buyout Rockstar, have them create a game, then close them down before the game comes out (and not give them any credit for having worked on it). Especially since that's exactly what Rockstar has done to their own workers in the past.

Both games will be at 4480 yen. For the first one, that's cheaper than I thought. For the second, it's ridiculous.

Well, because they took so long to just release the damn game, they'll basically give arcade goers a 2 month lease on the game, before it will hit PS2s. Almost like a karmic balance for having us wait practically two years between HnK and its PS2! XD

But any way...it's not like Arcade Owners would stand to have that much to lose. The game is already dirt cheap (thanks to being on the System 256), and the quick PS2 port will just mean that people will have an additional means to practice their game before they may "take it to the streets".

Besides, it would be best to release the game now, as opposed to releasing it later, amongst the slew of other fighting games that may stand to overshadow it, or the eventual, proper BASARA sequel that would be of more importance to fans than a "mere spin-off".

So, such as it is, this is probably the best move that ASW and Capcom could make for the game.

El Fuerte's profile says something about him being a fighter and a cook, but he can't cook very well. He's basically what Dan was to the Alpha/Zero series.

I like how you can control Edgey like a regular platformer, running around the crime scene, even if it were just a cosmetic change, though I feel like it might create problems in terms of control if you were to move edgey with the d-pad and then switch to stylus for the investigations and such.

Funny how after introducing the new cast of characters on Apollo justice/Gyakuten Saiban 4 Capcom is going back to regulars like gumshoe and edgeworth. I guess the new guys weren't really popular.

Funny how after introducing the new cast of characters on Apollo justice/Gyakuten Saiban 4 Capcom is going back to regulars like gumshoe and edgeworth. I guess the new guys weren't really popular. I haven't yet played Apollo justice so I'll reserve my judgement (no puns intended) until I can play it.

I played through Apollo. Not as good as the trilogy. And I guess Apollo didn't inspire horny amateur yaoi artists to launch endless waves of Apollo porn meet the high standards of the Ace Attorney series.

This game looks interesting, though. I wonder if Phoenix will be a regular in this game.

The game looks like crap, the new character looks like a reject villain from Sakura Taisen, and apparently Ero is not even working on it. Capcom broke the cash cow with 4, and now they are milking the last pennies out of it.

Confirmed. I will be there.

If I can sneak in some vids, I'll do it. I'm not going to risk getting kicked out, though. Last loketest, no cameras were allowed.



That's great! Thank you!

I wonder if El Fuerte will be the only new feature in this loketest... wasn't Abel revealed only at the first SFIV public demonstration?? Maybe this time Capcom could also reveal a fourth new character? Or another returning character (Vega, Cammy, etc.)? Or at least making Sagat and Balrog playable this time?

Yeah, maybe none of these things will happen, but at least we'll find out more about El Fuerte! Yay!

"EDITED: SFIV Loketest info" , posted Fri 11 Apr 13:17:post reply

Reno from shoryuken.com has reported that the phone website for SFIV now features a use for "zenny", which is currency you win during games played with your IC card. You can use zenny to buy new colors for your character's outfits.

"Zenny" of course, refers to the old type of currency used in classic games such as Forgotten Worlds and Black Tiger. The zenny feature was in the last loketest, but you couldn't buy anything with it. All records of last loketest were wiped, so the zenny on my IC card may be gone with it.

Also, there is rumors flying about, saying that a new character named "Rufus" is in the game. Although the person from 2ch (source of the rumor) says "Rufus" is a Chinese-African who is female, nothing has been confirmed about what the character looks like. However, checking the keitai site, I did see the name "Rufus" in katakana for the character rankings.

I am leaving now for Osaka, so this is the last time I will post until after midnight Japan time.

So, the fanboyism about the II series is true...they have seriously made the entire cast playable! How lame, I think I'll get bored soon of SF4 if there are always the same characters. Guilty Gear A Core is making me sick because of the very same characters, the game is different from Slash but the charas are the same. Pretty annoyed hearing this.

Vega is playable twice? Or are they referring to Vega and M.Bison? Then again, I wonder how Bison can be in SFIV if he died in SSFIIX (story retcon? it's actually a clone, a cyborg or a twin brother? maybe he time-travelled to the future?)...

EddyT's description about this rumoured Rufus character sounds interesting. I like the idea of a Chinese-African female fighter. If she's fatty, like Iggy said, that makes her even more unique (hey, not every videogame woman needs to have a fit body...).

However, are both information related to the same character? Or is one of them a rumour and the other is the real one referring to the character?

Anyway, I'm really glad with SFIV team so far: I was just expecting for Fuerte, Balrog and Sagat playable in this loketest (together with Viper, Abel and the 10 World Warriors, I mean); and not only they showed that, but also included Vega (and maybe M.Bison) and another new character! On the other hand, I hope there are more new characters; after all, four new characters + 12 SFIICE characters = "Super Street Fighter II Turbo '08: The NEW New Challengers"...

Oh... okay, then. I hope SFIV will still have at least one more new female character (nothing against C.Viper, it's just that the game needs more than just two women).

Is the "Chinese-African" part about Rufus true, though? Plus, what did you mean when you described him as a "heart-sama class"?

Anyway, thank you both for the news!! And please, keep'em coming!!

It's an online SF/social network site designed to tie into a Revoltech toy line. I'm sure the Japanese Fred Durst at the bottom of the linked page has more to say on the subject but who cares what he has to say?

Yes, yes, oh god yes. Best news I've heard this year so far.

Is it true that Matsukawa isn't going to have any part in this? That woman's been like poison to Gyakuten (despite getting the games localized).

It means he is gigantic and incredibly, incredibly fat. Probably deflects people with his belly and whatnot level fat.

Here are the pages for Iggy.

Toyama interview.

Remake of the first game (was it necessary?).
PS3 exclusive (I like how even SCEI feels obliged to precise this point).
It seems the episode system is presented slightly more clearly.
Demo in April; this confirms the leak from last month.
I am circonspect about the new title & english dialogues in the teaser site. I would assume the Blu Ray contains all languages on the same disc?
Maybe they want to double it as a 死TOEIC learn English with your expatriate hanshibito friends software?
