Sonic dashes into Smash bros Brawl in Wii

Date: Wednesday 10th October 2007 [18:25] | Posted By: Azure
Category: > Gaming

Forget the Olympics, Sonic will be a playable character in Nintendo's Smash Brothers Brawl. He'll be joining the likes of Mario, Peach, Link, and Solid Snake.

The official site has a preview video, in which he looks delightfully old school. Best game with Sonic in for years, we it think it might be so!

Dance Dance: Revolution keeps you fit

Date: Monday 17th September 2007 [18:20] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Gaming

It seems that physical education teachers in the UK have discovered what gamers have known for ages, that Dance Dance: Revolution keeps you fit. Schools in the UK have taken up DD:R classes to keep children fit in school. Apparently you can burn about 400 to 600 calories an hour in these classes, so it can be fun to keep fit and exercise. The classes are being used as a platform to get children fit, help them exercise regularly and encourage them to go to the gym.

Pokemon GTS- it's super effective

Date: Friday 14th September 2007 [18:35] | Posted By: Azure
Category: > Gaming

Nintendo have launched a site called Pokemon GTS, to compliment the online trading system for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. It's also semi-educational since you can find Pokemon by spinning a giant globe and clicking in various cities, you then find out various stats and info about that city.

Not sure abut the pronunciation for "Hello" on the London page though. Hardly regional. The annoying Pokemon music on the loading screen? Now that's great.

Ba-dum-dum-dah-dum-da-dum-duh-daaaamu!

Sony turns PS3 into DVR. Typically this makes us think of anime

Date: Wednesday 22nd August 2007 [16:04] | Posted By: Azure
Category: > Gaming

Sony will be launching PlayTV in a number of European PAL territories (UK, Germany, Spain Italy). PlayTV is a device which allows the PS3 to record one channel whilst you view another. Another big plus is that you can stream content to your PSP via Remote Play or transfer it to the PSP to view outside the home.

Whilst I could make a lot of coments about the technlogy, what I'm really thinking about is that combined with Anime Central and Anime Network this could be very useful. Shame I don't have Sky, or a PSP or a PS3.

Naruto but not as we know him

Category: > Gaming

Whilst the confusion over the inclusion of the Japanese voices in Ubisoft's Naruto 360 game still reigns supreme (did they never think they might release it in Japan in these post IdolM@ster days?) it seems that a Naruto themed character will appear in Rayman: Raving Rabbids 2.

This means keen fans will be able to pitch him in mini game battle against other themed Rabbids including Spider-man.

Wii quite popular then

Date: Friday 8th December 2006 [5:45] | Posted By: Azure
Category: > Gaming

The UK is officially 2/3 into the next gen, with Nintendo's Wii the second off the block and it seems that it's doing extremely well, with reports of extremely crowded Oxford Street launches.

Nintendo are promising four more shipments before Christmas but it's likely these will go toward fulfilling pre-orders. If you haven't pre-ordered looks like you'll have to wait until new year. After recieving a newsletter from Nintendo we'd like to add a small update for Wii owners who might be pleased to hear that Nintendo is supporting the stars system (it's loyalty club) with the Wii, so you'll be able to use those hard earned stars for Wii points. Yay! ^_^

Every so often we get stories which I'm sure will generate some interesting key word stats next time Joe checks them, this is one. Panty Explosion is a good ol' fashioned RPG available in book and PDF form here's what the website says:

"Panty Explosion is a psychic schoolgirl adventure game. Each player takes the role of a normal Japanese student. One of you, perhaps more then one of you, is a psychic with devastating and terrifying powers."

I'm currently wondering if a rat flail +5 could beat a a psychic schoolgirl...

Keen gamers out there will want to get to London's Science Museum as they'll be running a computer games exhibition called Game On. It's set to run from 21st October 2006 until 25th February 2007 and will feature games from the 1960's to the current day.

Interestingly enough, this exhibition will also feature the design processes involved with game production. Nintendo fans will also be pleased to hear that drawings by Shigeru Miyamoto will be only display. So for fans and wannabe games developers, it's well worth a look!

Wii Price and Date Announced for the UK

Date: Friday 15th September 2006 [10:53] | Posted By: Azure
Category: > Gaming

The Nintendo Wii will be launched on December 8th in the UK. Bundled with Wii Sports, one wireless controller and one nunchuck add on it will cost £179. Nintendo first party games will retail for between £34 and £39.

There will be 20 launch titles which include Zelda: Twilight Princess, Red Steel and Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz.

Additional controllers will be £29 for the Wiimote, £14 for the Nunchuck and £14 for the classic controller.

The price is pretty competative considering that it inludes Wii sports, though the Wiimote looks a little steep. Though I'm certainly hoping that One Piece will be out soonish.

Rare Games Collection Stolen

Date: Sunday 20th August 2006 [15:36] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Fandom

We've been passed a press release from DDR:uk, a group of hardcore Dance Dance Revolution fanatics, on the 18th of August their equipment was stolen (with the exception of their custom build DDR machine, as it too big to easily move), their £25,000 collection includes a wide variety of rare and sought after games, most of which are no longer in production, along with specialist hardware and games controllers.

Since the items in question are rather unique, we would like to ask community minded otaku to be aware of the items stolen and keep a look out for them on places like popular auction sites, specialist games dealers and other places second hand goods are traded. The DDR:uk crew are offering a reward for any information.

The DDR:uk crew also help run events at anime conventions such as the games room, which was a huge success at AmeCon 2006, with the DDR machine being a huge attraction, along with the more unusual classic games. DDR:uk also put a plea out for hardware and games donation to help replace what was stolen.

On a side note the AmeCon manga library (which is made up of generous donations from Tokyopop and Tanoshimi and is stored with the DDR:uk hardware), was also vanadilised by the same criminals, with boxes of manga thrown out onto the street into the rain, and is now spoiled as a result.

We've deliberatly posted this to all editions of Otaku News, as although the items in question were stolen in the UK, many of the items stolen are rare they're desirable internationally, so all our readers should be made aware.

Free Visual Novel Construction Tool Released

Category: > Gaming > PC

Fans of dating games will be pleased to hear that the nice folks from CuriousFactory and Buredo have released a free game engine and construction kit, designed at making Visual Novels easy to produce in English. In a nutshell this will allow users to create their own interactive stories, anime and manga fans will probably be most familiar with dating games, but the companies are keen to promote that you can also produce other games using their game engine.

A good story is a must, good artwork is always nice too, but there are some crafty ways around this, such as taking photos of things and then using a bit of photoshop magic. It’ll be interesting to see if any otaku take up developing games on this engine. Currently the engine is Windows only.

Dragon from the London Anime Club has sent us the following message -

"I know it's short notice but there is a Japanese film crew in town over the weekend filming for JTV. Although they are concentrating on Japanese Games in the West (the programme is sponsored by the creators of Naruto) they want as many fans as possible. So if you happen to be in the vicinity of Cafe Manga on 11am on Sunday morning then you are very welcome. And if you could also pass this info along to anybody else who you think might be interested."

So if you can get to London on Sunday 9th April (and head to Cafe Manga which is near the London Eye), you'll get a chance to be on Japanese TV. Naruto cosplayers get extra bonus points!

Gainax, the anime studio behind Neon Genesis Evangelion (currently airing Thursday nights on Adult Swim), has announced a new contest for the latest video game spin-off for the hit series. The contest is calling for fans to design a new character for the second part of Neon Genesis Evangelion Supplementary Story: A Midsummer Night's Dream, a game designed for cellular phones.

The guidelines for the contest can be found on Gainax’s website. Unfortunately for American Evangelion fans, they are in Japanese. The few guidelines that are known is that the character must be female, and must be in the same class as EVA pilots Shinji, Rei and Asuka. Contestants will not simply be limited to only submitting designs for the physical appearance of the new character, but can also create her personality, manner of speech, and so on. There is no explicit statement saying that the contest is only open to Japanese residents. Other rules and guidelines, such as a final submission date, are not known at this time.
