This version would have had unique visuals and a co-op mode. Ancel then teased that he would like to see this ROM brought to the Nintendo Switch in some form or another. That would be amazing

How to describe Ninja Pizza Girl. It isn’t like most other games available today and the best way to describe it is as a cross between Mirror’s Edge, Paperboy and Spider-Man. If that sounds strange, well it is. The game involves playing as a pizza delivery girl for her father’s shop. You must deliver the pizzas within a time limit while dealing with enemy pizza delivery agents from the megacorporation that is trying to muscle in on her father’s territory.

Gameplay is fast paced and needs to be done a short time or you fail the mission. You are delivering pizza after all, cant be too late or it loses its warmth and tastiness. You must dodge the enemies or attack at the right time in order to progress. A few mistakes can be made, but too many will make you need to restart because you will have lost far too much time. The music in the game is quite good and helps keep you focused on fast paced gameplay. It has the right touch to get you pumped up. The art is also well done and gives the game a unique feeling to it.

The gameplay is the high point of the game, but the story on the other hand? Its not all that good and has some rather cringe writing. It goes for a message about bullying and harassing but it just doesn’t come off right and feels awkward and stilted instead.

Honestly this is a hard one to talk about. The gameplay is quite decent but its story drags it down unintentionally. I would give it a play just for its gameplay though, but that is just me.

Nintendo sent out the following


REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 20, 2016 – In an introductory video released today (, Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”

Developers can design their games supporting a variety of play styles, which gives gamers the freedom to choose an experience that best suits them. Some of the publishers, developers and middleware partners announcing support for Nintendo Switch are as follows:

No GravatarIt was announced today that Razer, the manufacturer of gaming peripherals has purchased the majority of assets of THX Ltd. Razer be the parent company and will continue to operate the company as an independent entity under its current management and employees.

In May 2015. Ty Ahmad-Taylor came aboard THX as the CEO and made a commitment that the company would branch out into the consumer electronics sector. Whether the plan was for the company to be purchased is not known, he stated in a post in March 2016, that the certification of quality included development of headphones, virtual reality and more.

THX was formed by legendary film maker George Lucas in the early 1980’s to fill a void that he found in the quality of the playback of movies in commercial cinemas. The original certification program of THX began in 1983 to coincide with the release of “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.”


“For over 30 years, THX has maintained a proud legacy of being one of the leaders in audio technology and certification worldwide,” said Laurie Fincham, senior vice president of Audio Research and Development at THX.

“With their focus on quality, design and innovation, Razer supports our vision to optimize and deliver the best audiovisual experiences to audiences worldwide.”

Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said, “Razer has a vision for innovation at every level of entertainment, a vision which THX has championed since its inception more than 30 years ago. This acquisition will allow us to reinforce Razer’s leadership in gaming and extend the brand into broader areas of entertainment, while at the same time empowering THX to develop into a global powerhouse, independently.”

“Our focus has always been on ensuring that anyone can experience high quality entertainment, regardless of their medium of choice. With Razer, we can now continue to strengthen our core lines of business while delivering excellence for our customers’ ever-changing needs,” said Ty Ahmad-Taylor, CEO of THX. “As a standalone company, THX will work with Razer but will primarily continue to service our partners in the industry in order to deliver great products to consumers.”

Details of the transaction was no disclosed.

No GravatarRockstar’s Red Dead Teaser Brings Out Spoofs For Other Titles

As we reported earlier that Rockstar Games has been releasing images for the last two days, to what most of us are assuming is an impending announcement of a new Red Dead Redeption title. While this has pleasantly surprised fans, other studios have jumped on the bandwagon also.

The original image is a red back ground with seven cowboy-esque type men most of them wielding either a shotgun or pistol, standing in front of a setting sun. Since the image has gone viral with fans excited two studios have taken the same image but put their own spin on it, adding their own character of their individual IPs.

Final Fantasy XV Twitter account was the first one to post the spook with the sillouttes of Gladiolus, Ignas, Noctis and Prompto.

Within the last hour, Dead Rising’s Twitter feed showed up with their own spoof with Frank West in the middle surrounded by zombies from their upcoming title Dead Rising 4, which is to be released on Xbox One and PC, December 6.

It is obvious that these studios are just playing off of the excitement of the upcoming announcement, but it also shows how much love there is for the Red Dead franchise. Stay with Real Otaku Gamer for the latest on the announcement of a new Red Dead title, and all your video game news.

No GravatarRockstar Games has a habit of leaving gamers hanging when it comes to announcements. Perhaps they like to see them squirm, and social media blow up with excitement and anticipation. Either way, they got to see both when the video game publisher has now posted two pics on their Twitter account, with nothing else.

We reported yesterday that Rockstar posted their logo in a big red rectangular box, which anyone knows is the first word in the popular action game which was released in May 2010 on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

Then this morning, twenty three hours and fifty nine mintues after the first pic showed up, a piece of artwork was put up with this western theme. Showing what looks like seven cowboys in front of a sunset.

Of course we can only speculate, hope and pray that this is the beginning of announcing a Red Dead Redemption sequel, though it could be a remastered version of the original.

As was expected, Rockstar Games did not answer any of our questions through email or phone calls, but stay with Real Otaku Gamer for the latest on Red Dead Redemption and all the latest news and reviews.

No GravatarSFV

It has been announced that both Capcom and SNK will be bringing their newest fighting games to the arcade scene. For now SFV and KOF XIV will only be coming to Japan, but hopefully some of the cabinets will make their way west.


Capcom will be bringing Street Fighter V to arcades in the near future in the form of the the PC version. Details will be clarified at a later time.

For Taito, the company announced NESiCAxLive 2, its follow-up arcade digital content platform. Companies such as Arc System Works, Examu, FK Digital and French Bread have pledged support for the system. SNK will also take part by announcing that The King of Fighters XIV will be coming to Japanese arcades through this platform.

While SF V will be based on the PC version, this does raise some questions. Does the game coming to arcades mean we will get a proper arcade mode is the first and foremost question on my mind. The lack of a proper arcade mode with character ladders and endings did hurt SFV, so this introducing an arcade more could help.

For KOF XIV, the game is already near perfect but this can be used to find ways to refine the game and make it even better. It can also be used to determine if DLC should be done and who should be DLC.

Most importantly though, this could help the sales of both games. SF V has done notoriously poorly in sales, and KOF has been lagging. Arcade versions could get more people interested and help get more sales for the games. Whatever your opinions are of these two fighters, the FGC needs more fighting games to sell if it is to continue, and this can help greatly.
