Spider Man 3 and Animal Crossing Revolution

It's been a big day today with the unveiling of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hour Glass and plenty of other things, but as the day comes to a close so does the news, but there's a bit more big news before this day ends. First off Actavision revealed that Spider Man 3 Revolution is being developed from the ground up in order to take advantage of the Revolution Controller. Also it is now officially and definitely confirmed that Animal Crossing Revolution is in the works. Series producer Katsuya Eguch today talked about Animal Crossing DS, and of course, Animal Crossing Revolution. He stated that they are looking into the different things they could do in Animal Crossing for the Revolution. Check out the full articles by clicking the source link below, and of course, stay tuned to Revo-News for more news as it pops up. Source: IGN.com

Metroid Prime Hunters is in my Hands!

Finally, three days after launch, Metroid Prime Hunters is in my hands! My bro picked it up for me while he was at work since my pre-order still hadn't shipped. It's funny how I pre-order it from, online fromWal-Mart but then ended up just picking it up at the store. Crazy stuff. I managed to squeeze in some singleplayer play and also played a few online matches. I just have one thing to say, THIS GAME KICKS BASS! The graphics in the game are incredibly detailed, and aiming with the touch screen is almost as good as the old keyboard and mouse. Although I'll hold off on my final impressions till I review in around a week, I'd just like to say that Hunters online totally blows away Mario Kart, it's that good. Also I took plenty of pictures of me opening the the package and will make up a documentary for the new site when it launches.

GDC Conference Coverage

Okay, sorry for not updating live through out Iwatas speach, I was to busy with other things, so, I apologize. But now that I'm here I might as well talk about todays events. Not much was revealed but what was was HUGE.

First off Iwata revealed that Sega Genesis, Master System, and even Turbo Graphix 16 games will be coming to Revolution Virtual Console. Iwata stated that not all games will be featured, rather Nintendo will pick the best of the best on those three systems.

Finally, most likely the best news of the show, Iwata revealed the upcoming DS title The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The game takes on the exact style of Wind Waker with beautiful cel-shaded graphics. The game is set to come out this year.

Follow the link to check out all the info and stay tuned to Revo-News for more news on the Virtual Console and Phantom Hourglass.

My Quest For Metroid Prime Hunters

Since I pre-ordered my copy of hunters from Wal-Mart a month ago I've anxiously awaited the "Your item has shipped" e-mail. Well today I looked in my e-mail, there was one letter in my inbox, it was adressed by Wal-Mart, it is an advertisement for Spring products, I weep. So for yet another day I am left with another reason to say "Screw you Wal-Mart".

Nintendo Metroid Prime Hunters/Tetris DS Press Release

REDMOND, Wash., March 20 /PRNewswire/ — Nintendo’s wireless gaming service welcomes two incredible new games that will raise the level of competition to dramatic new levels. Metroid(R) Prime Hunters is Nintendo’s first real first-person shooter for Nintendo DS(TM), while Tetris(R) DS features classic puzzle action remixed with retro Nintendo themes. Both games launch today, and both are playable on Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo’s wireless gaming service. Together they reinforce Nintendo’s commitment to making games that appeal to both hard-core and casual gamers.

“These two games really showcase the range of abilities of the world’s favorite new portable game system,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “They will further help drive Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection as the hottest Wi-Fi format ever introduced to games.” In Metroid Prime Hunters, the legendary Metroid franchise continues with new hunters, new abilities, new weapons and new alternate forms. Withworldwide Wi-Fi connectivity, there’s always a band of hunters eager to challenge a player’s skills. Metroid Prime Hunters is also the first Nintendo DS game to offer real-time voice chat, letting players talk to one another before and after they face off in a multiplayer match. The chat technology functions much like a two-way radio and lets players intimidate opponents with some friendly trash talk. With this free service, players who have exchanged their Nintendo DS friend codes can converse through Nintendo DS across the Americas. Players must be logged on to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to use the chat feature.

Metroid Prime Hunters lets players battle in more than 20 action-packed arenas across seven multiplayer modes, including Battle, Capture, Bounty, Survival, Defender and Nodes, as well as the exciting Prime Hunter mode, where players battle to become the most powerful hunter in the arena. New hunters join the Metroid universe, including Trace, Sylux, Noxus, Spire,Kanden and Weavel, all battling against Samus in both single-player and multiplayer games. Each new hunter has a unique background, fighting style and individual alt forms to match up against Samus’ Morphball.

Not to be outdone, Tetris DS includes six modes, each based on a theme from a famous Nintendo character or game. The classic block-building game finds new ways to entertain. Some of the modes make use of the Nintendo DS touch screen. Newcomers and longtime fans alike will find new surprises. Using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, up to four players compete in two- orfour-player battles against friends or strangers. And with just one game card, up to 10 players can clash using DS Download Play.

New Super Mario Bros Features 80 Levels

For those of you who enjoyed the huge amount of levels in Mario 3 for the NES New Super Mario Bros is for you. The newest Nintendo just brought confirmation that the game will feature 80 LEVELS, a huge step up from the 3D Mario games where you have around 10 levels and multiple missions in each. Stay tuned to Revo-News for more info as it creeps closer to it's May 7th release.

Yoot Saito Making DS Game

“The Nintendo DS is a wonderful handheld. I’m glad it comes with a built-in microphone. That’s why we have things planned for it. We’re working on a different title right now that will use the network and microphone, but unfortunately I can’t really discuss it yet.” Yoot Saito

For those of you who don't know who Saito is, he is the man behind the upcoming GameCube game Odama. This is official confirmation straight from the game designer that he has a DS game in the works. He mentioned that it will use the DS network, hopefully this means Wi-Fi Connection. Stay tuned to Revo-News for more info as it arrives.

Tales of the Tempest Screens

I only have one word for this game... HOLY CRUD... oh, wait, that was two. The graphics in this game just keep getting better and better the more I see of it. It appears as though Namco has pulled off a winner as far as graphics, let's just hope it has winning gameplay too.

Shoot! Well it turns out that Blogger is acting up and it won't let me post pictures. The sooner I get the site moved the better. Follow the link to check out the screens.

IGN Metroid Prime Hunters Hands On

Every little bit I see of this game it makes me drool so badly that the second floor is the only livible place in my house. This new hands on and video footage, from IGN, made it even worse. Now as you read this I am currently trapped in my attic waiting for rescue workers to break me out.

Craig Harris from IGN gave a basic run down of the game in the preview, talking on things such as controls, gameplay, and of course the games marvelous graphics. Craig Harris is quoted as saying "Many people put the Nintendo DS up around the Nintendo 64 capabilities, but honestly, I can't recall any N64 game looking this good". Mighty strong words, especially for a system being called by many "underpowered".

Click the link below to check out the full preview and also 10 minutes of direct feed footage. I personally held back on watching some of the footage just not to spoil anything. ;) I'll have a review up sometime early next month.

Site Problems

All right as some of you might have seen, Revo-News has been experiencing problems all afternoon, so I guess now I'll reveal my big plans for the site. The problems with the site were due to me trying to import all my Blogger posts into Wordpress. Stupid wordpress screwed up the entire site after doing so, and it turns out it didn't import all the posts it was supposed to anyway.

But anyways I managed to find some good hosting to put the site on, and as you might have guessed, we will be switching over to Wordpress. This will make it much easier for all of you to post comments and I'll also be able to have a page dedicated to special features and the Reggie Pic of the Week. Also with the switch will come a much better cleaner site design. And the best part is the adress will now be www.revo-news.com

So just hang in there everybody, I'm working as fast as I can to get the new site up. It should be up sometime next week. See ya.

Pandemic Studios on Revolution

Today IGN posted an interview with a member of Pandemic Studios, the company best known for Full Spectrum Warrior and Star Wars Battlefront, about the Nintendo Revolution and their plans for the system. Check out a little snippet from the interview then follow the link for the full article. IGN Revolution: What do you think of Nintendo’s Revolution controller? Greg Borrud: Everyone around here is pretty excited about it. We’ve just started thinking about how we could use it with our games and there are a lot of interesting ideas that are coming up. I think the new controller has huge potential to push games in more exciting directions than just having better graphics. That said - I’m hoping the controller will prove more than a novelty. It remains to be seen if it can play like a traditional controller while offering all the unique aspects that make it so attractive. I think it will need to be able to do both well or else it could become regarded as a niche product.

Happy St. Patricks day!

Hey everybody! Just like to wish all you readers a happy St. Patricks day! And in honor of this day I have a special Reggie Pic. Enjoy. :)

Reggie Pic - Special Edition

Although I'm not supposed to be posting a Reggie pic until Thursday I decided that in light of the recent PS3 delay I'd make a special one. As most of you know the PS3 has been officially delayed in Japan until November. They claim this is because of problems with the Blu-Ray copy protection system but I think otherwise. The following photo shows Reggie Fils-Aime fleeing the scene of Sony HQ blowing to pieces. Copy protection or Reggie? I think this photo makes it pretty clear. PS. You'll have to click the following link, because Blogger is acting up.

Miyamoto Knighted

Today in Paris Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of such franchises as Mario and Zelda, was knighted along with Micheal Ancel and Frédérick Raynal. Although we can't really call him "Sir Miyamoto" in my mind he desereves the title, so let's all cheer for Sir Miyamoto! YAY!

Captain N is Coming to DVD

Oh Gosh help us. Why dost though torture us with such agonizingly cheap Nintendo shows. *sob* DVDInsider: I am the producer of the DVD line of DiC titles at Shout! Factory, beginning with the recent COPS: The Animated Series. For the past couple of days, I’ve been going around the net researching Captain N: The Game Master, because I will, in fact, be producing it for OFFICIAL release (so, PLEASE stop any and all bootlegging you may be working on) later in the year. I’d like to clear up a few things that I’ve noticed posted here and a couple of other sites. For starters, Shout! isn’t owned by Sony. Sony is our distributor, so for a small percentage, Sony stocks retailers with our product. Shout! Factory is owned by Richard Foos (the founder of Rhino), his brother Garson, and Bob Emmer. Secondly, regarding Captain N’s masters… I’m dealing with DiC even as I write this and the masters are in excellent condition. There’s virtually NO difference between a production master and a broadcast master when you’re dealing with animation. The major difference is that a broadcast master has several minutes of black where the commercials should be. Therefore, the masters I’m working with look as good as any that were “destroyed” when Disney took over. I’m actually in the process of putting together a list of possible special features. While the lists I receive from people are in no way guaranteed extras– because as people have mentioned, Captain N isn’t a show on which most companies can spend a LARGE amount of money and expect a return–, I would very much like to hear what the fans are looking for. If you’re interested in throwing out suggestions, please do so here. Do not email me, as I’m working on far too many projects to look and answer a ton of emails from fans. But I assure you, as you can witness in other forums around the web, that I will check back and respond here OFTEN. Thanks in advance and tell all your friends that the Captain’s finally coming to DVD!

Brain Age Press Release and Screens

Check out a brand new press release then follow the link to see five brand new screens. It’s easy to tell when your body is out of shape, but what about your brain? International Brain Awareness Week begins March 13 as baby boomers and others are looking for the best way to exercise their brains. Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day for Nintendo DS™ launches April 17 on the heels of the week designed to increase public awareness about the brain. Users write their answers or draw a picture on the portable Nintendo DS touch screen to keep their “DS brains” young and fit by performing mental activities quickly. Dr. Elizabeth Zelinski, dean and executive director of University of Southern California’s Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, says games like Brain Age can help keep older generations of Americans’ minds active. “Americans can do a great deal to maintain and even improve their mental abilities,” Zelinski explains. “Aging is about taking on new challenges for our minds. Nintendo’s Brain Age is a great way to do that.” Americans of all ages are always looking for ways to get a mental edge and Brain Age acts as a treadmill for the mind. In Brain Age, first-time users take a few tests to establish their DS brain age. Holding the DS like a book, users perform activities like drawing lines to connect letters and numbers in order, counting the syllables in well-known phrases and other brain-stimulating activities. Sharing a game card allows users to compare their results with family and friends.

Check out what the president had to say about the game below. “Online capabilities, magnificent graphics, and an intense use of the revolutionary control of the platform.” Square-Enix President - Youichi Wada Sounds pretty good to me. Especially online play. Something that wasn't mentioned here though is that Crystal Chronicles will reach the US by the end of the year meaning it will be a luanch title here. Now let's hope that they decide to release info on the DS version sometime within the next millenia.

Fifa Street 2 DS Videos

Up until today whenever I saw screens of this game it looked like crud, but after seeing the new vids of the game over at IGN it really doesn't look that bad in motion. The game has good animation and a solid frame rate, definitely not how I envisioned it in motion through screenshots. Just follow the link to check out the three new videos.

Cars Coming to Revolution.

At long last another 3rd party Revolution game with a name has been announced... although it will probably turn out too be a huge dung heap as most movie games are. IGN recently asked THQ about their plans for the Revolution THQ stated that they have several games in development and that Cars is one of them. On the release date THQ stated "around the launch window." Stay tuned to Revo-News for more information as it drives in. Hahaha! Get it? *Runs off*
