Blizzard Classic Games Team recently did a survey talking about Wacraft 3 and the plans for it’s future.

Some very interesting things were discussed including balance changes,

 

Adjusting balance is a delicate process. We’re believe gradual change is the correct approach, because the Warcraft III ecosystem has been unchanged for so many years. We think good balance starts with competitive map pools. We are crafting a diverse selection of maps to encourage various gameplay styles; there will be maps that result in fast, frenetic games and others that allow for deeper, macro oriented play. As the community helps us make refinements and becomes comfortable with the new pools, we will introduce balance changes with a focus on maximum optionality between races.

Before people get too worried though, they also added that they are aware that too many changes can ruin the game.

 

There are two types of crazy ideas. The first kind: larger control groups, different AI or pathing, and the like would fundamentally break gameplay – and tend to get shouted down by our hardcore players. The second: like convert World Editor from JASS to LUA or add a fifth race are amazing, but would lead to a new game. We have some big ideas that people will be excited about – and we’re excited too – but first we need to get the basics right, and earn the community’s trust to make larger decisions in the future.

Warcraft III’s future seems to be in good hands and the team knows not to mess with the formula too much but does want to improve things. Now if we could only get Warcraft 4.

Friday the 13th: The Game developer IllFonic has denied reports that the studio has moved on from the game.

The following tweet was released.

 

 

IllFonic then went on to note that they have multiple teams and no resources are being taken away from one game for another. Hopefully this puts the false story to bed.

Here is some awesome news. Splatoon 2 has sold over 671K physical copies in Japan in its first  3 days. This far outpaces the sales of Zelda on Switch and shows that Splatoon 2 will be a major player in terms of system sales for the Switch.

In addition, 102K Switch systems were sold in Japan in the 3 days.

For comparison. The original Splatoon’s Japanese debut sales were 156,610 physical copies on Wii U.

Inti Creates is no longer part of the development of Bloodstained…..At least not the main game.

The developers revealed on the game’s forums that Inti Creates left the main project last E3, but they will still produce the “prequel mini-game.” DICO hastaken Inti Create’s place, and  ArtPlay is also still the main developer.

 

Maybe it is best to clarify it here. Inti Creates is not involved in the main development of the Bloodstained game, but they are involved in the prequel mini-game. Part of the vagueness is to avoid unneeded attention and negative speculation. So yes, they are involved but not in the main game since last year’s E3. DICO has picked up the development from where they have left off under mutual agreement.

A lot of parties are involved so it could be quite confusing. ArtPlay is the main developer, while we are hiring DICO as a third party developer. We created the game design, story, direction, gimmicks, and the overall production of the game while DICO creates art assets, design levels, and basically filling in the manpower ArtPlay doesn’t have. In the future, you’ll most likely see 505 Games and ArtPlay credited on trailer videos and articles to come out.

Another game has been confirmed for Nintendo Switch.

 

Coming from Nintendo Everything

 

Superbeat: Xonic will offer over 50 music tracks and 200 different play patterns on Switch. 4TRAX (beginner), 6TRAX, and 6TRAX FX (master) difficulties are included, as well as a tutorial mode. In Free Style, you can experience endless gameplay. Local and worldwide rankings will be supported, too.

According to a retailer source, Superbeat: Xonic is currently planned for October 3 on Switch.

This is great news. The Nintendo Switch is getting more and more third party support, and looks to avert the fate of the Wii U. This is great for not only Nintendo fans but fans of gaming in general. A strong Nintendo is needed for a strong industry.
