Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end.
With their friendship and respect for each other still very much intact, Watsham and Hargrove will continue developing videogames under the names of their new companies: Atooi and Infitizmo.
The award-winning library of Intellectual Properties that Renegade Kid has created over the past decade will be finding new homes. All of Renegade Kid’s “2D” games, including the Mutant Mudds series and Treasurenauts, will become the property of Atooi. All of Renegade Kid’s “3D” games, including the Dementium series and Moon Chronicles, will become the property of Infitizmo.
We hope you will share in the excitement that both Jools and Gregg feel for their new journeys. You can follow their progress on twitter: @AtooiLLC and @InfitizmoLLC.

While it is sad to hear of the studio’s demise, it is good to know that the IPs will continue and both studios will still be making games.

As Nintendo prepares to show off a number of cool indie games at PAX West in Seattle, the video game maker is making sure that game lovers all across the country can get in on the action from afar: The esteemed “Nindie” community has come together to put the spotlight on independent games in Nintendo eShop on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Every Thursday in September, a new digital release will hit Nintendo eShop for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS or both at an introductory pricing promotion of 10 percent off during the first week of launch. Additionally, the featured developers will share video stories about their projects’ development in Nintendo eShop. The featured developers will also curate a shelf in Nintendo eShop highlighting some of their favorite games.

Our Nindie partners have been hard at work creating amazing content for Nintendo fans,” said Damon Baker of Nintendo of America’s Publisher and Developer Relations. “The #Nindies Summer Jam promotion not only makes it easy for fans to check out all the latest and greatest indie games on Nintendo eShop, but to also learn more about the developers that have worked so hard to create them.”

The release schedule is as follows:

Sept. 1
Axiom Verge from Thomas Happ Games – In this retro-style action-platform-exploration game, use the Wii U GamePad as your map, a way to easily swap between weapons or for Off-TV Play. A failed scientist dies in an accident, only to awaken in a mysterious, alien world. Where is he? How did he get here? And why do the fundamental laws of reality appear broken? Life. Afterlife. Real. Virtual. Dream. Nightmare. It’s a thin line. It’s Axiom Verge. Available on Wii U.

Sept. 8
Jotun: Valhalla Edition from Thunder Lotus Games – Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Jotun: Valhalla Edition features Valhalla Mode, a boss rush mode with even fiercer versions of the already challenging jotun. Exclusive to the Wii U version, the map is always displayed on the GamePad and God Powers can be activated using the touch screen. The game launches on Wii U first, and its GamePad features make this the definitive version. Impress the Gods!

Sept. 15
Noitu Love: Devolution from MP2 Games – The year is 2288. The city is protected by an organization called “The Peacekeepers League” and everything is swell except that it’s under attack by a robot army lead by professor Darnacus Damnation! Or is it… ? Available on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS with intuitive, touch-screen controlled gameplay.

Sept. 22
Severed from Drinkbox Studios – Take control of a one-armed warrior named Sasha, who wields a living sword on her journey through a nightmare world in search of her family. Available on Wii U. Features include: Cross-Buy between Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, Wii U Off-TV Play, in-game Achievements, HD graphical optimizations.

Sept. 30
Azure Striker GUNVOLT 2 from INTI CREATES – Azure Striker GUNVOLT 2 is a 2D action-platforming game in the style of the Japanese classics of yesteryear. The great controls, crisp graphics, unique play mechanics and epic boss battles from the first installment are all here, along with a host of new features. Available exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.

You can see the trailer for the promotion below

This is extremely cool and we hope to cover most if not all of these games in the future.

Additionally, all attendees will have access to EMP’s Indie Game Revolution exhibit, which includes newly installed titles from the Nintendo independent community. The Nindies@Night event takes place 8 p.m.-midnight on Sept. 1 at the EMP Museum, 325 Fifth Ave. N in Seattle.

Indie Lounge at PAX West: For anyone who wasn’t able to make it to the Nindies@Night event, we are bringing the same playable Nindie content to PAX West in the convention center on the sixth floor in Room 612. Developers will be there to demonstrate their games and answer questions, and giveaway free swag. Indie Lounge hours are noon-9 p.m. Friday to Sunday, and noon-6 p.m. on Monday.

Nintendo’s Booth: PAX West attendees can swing by the Nintendo booth (South Hall, Booth No. 2335) to check out a variety of fun games and products. In addition to a number of fun activities themed to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Nintendo plans to have playable versions of the Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and YO-KAI WATCH 2 games on hand. Additionally, visitors can check out cool displays of amiibo figures and the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition hardware, which launches Nov. 11.

XI

No GravatarXI

 

It was initially announced when Dragon Quest XI was revealed that the game would be coming to the NX. Square Enix then backtracked but it has now been confirmed that the game is coming to the NX. The developers are targeting a simultaneous release across platforms.

The following is from the October issue of Nintendo Dream.

 

 

Masahiro Sakurai: Well then, I would like to ask about each of your new games. First, Dragon Quest XI. The 11th installment in the series will be released simultaneously on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4, and including NX it’s coming out on three platforms, right?

Yuji Horii: That’s right. The use of hardware is different for each system, so it’s quite a challenge.

Sakurai: Thank you for working so hard.

 

………………………………..

 

Sakurai: I see. Including things like the release date, it gets dreadful when development is inevitably drawn out and the debugging piles up… But shifting away from the release date, they’re not going to be released apart from each other, right? Since Dragon Quest games are story-driven.

Horii: That’s right. Spoilers will emerge if we release one version earlier. (Laughs.)

And there we have it. The game will be coming to the NX. Now we just need to see the NX be revealed.

No GravatarThe Pokémon Company released the following today.

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—August 19, 2016—At the 2016 Pokémon World Championships today, The Pokémon Company International gave its passionate fans a first look at new Pokémon coming to the highly anticipated Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games, available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The fascinating Alola region Pokémon will appear in the latest generation of Pokémon video games that will launch in North America on November 18. Additionally, TPCi announced Pokémon-GX, a new kind of card coming to the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) as part of the Sun & Moon Series, at the brand’s premier fan event in San Francisco.

Video Games

The newly revealed Alola region Pokémon include:

Name: Crabrawler
Type: Fighting
Crabrawler is a Boxing Pokémon that really hates to lose. It can be found clinging to buildings with its powerful pincers that also pack a powerful punch, or gathering around trees in search of Berries, its favorite food.

The following Alola Region Pokémon were also recently revealed:

Name: Stufful
Type: Normal/Fighting
Stufful may have a small body, but this Pokémon has extraordinary strength. Despite its cute, fluffy appearance, Stufful dislikes being touched and will flail its arms in protest. Stufful evolves into Bewear.

Name: Sandygast
Type: Ghost/Ground
Sandygast emerges when the grudges of fallen Pokémon soak into the sand after battle, and its tunnel-like mouth can suck the vitality from people and Pokémon. Sandygast also features a new Water Compaction Ability, never before seen in other Pokémon, where its Defense stat goes up by two if it’s hit with a Water-type move. Sandygast evolves into Palossand.

Name: Palossand
Type: Ghost/Ground
Palossand disguises itself as a sandcastle, with its shovel on top serving, it is believed, as a radar to search out prey. Unsuspecting small Pokémon are dragged into Palossand’s body through its sandy vortex so it can steal their life force.

 

 

 

These Pokémon look really cool and we are extremely excited for the chance to play as them in Pokémon Sun and Moon.
