While Mario and Sonic and their respective casts face off every few years in their Olympic Games crossover games, Sonic creator Yuji Naka still has not given up on his original idea. He gave an interview with Famitsu recently where he discusses what he originally envisioned for a crossover

 

 

Actually, I wanted Mario [and Sonic] to appear together, so one time I went to give Miyamoto-san a presentation on how I want to create an action game which is co-starred by Mario and Sonic. It was in the GameCube days, and I took around four planners with me. It is a pity that the discussion was ‘clearly it isn’t necessary for Mario and Sonic to co-star in an action [game]’ and it didn’t become a reality, but SEGA was able to get the license for the Olympics just at that time, so in order to make the best use of the license, companion characters appeared together. A little later Sonic appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. However, this too came into reality because I requested from Sakurai-san, ‘I want Sonic to appear [in Smash Bros.]’. The Olympics is a bit different from my wish, but I think it’s a good thing that children around the world are happy about them co-starring. But someday I want to realize an action [game] together with Mario. I think I’m going to give another presentation so that Takashi [Iizuka] finds the necessity [of a Mario & Sonic action game] (laughs).

Original Sonic designer Naoto Ohshima, who participated in the interview as well, also chimed in with the following:

“I also agree. Previously they were considered rivals, but when I saw them co-starring, I honestly thought that Nintendo acknowledged Sonic.”

I and no doubt millions of others, would love to see a true crossover between Sonic and Mario. I hope that one day, Yuji Naka is able to help get this game made.

No GravatarAtlus and SNK sent out the following

We’ll not beat around the bush. Team Ikari Warriors is an elite mercenary agency,
led by Commander Heidern, that’s tasked with gathering intel about Antonov and some
of the other… undesirables in
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament.
These soldiers of fortune are big, strong, and not afraid of getting up close and personal in combat. Leading these warriors into the tournament is Colonel Ralf Jones, nicknamed the One Man Army, who is no stranger to fighting. Although Ralf is a bit hotheaded, he is an exceptional leader who utilizes a dangerous mercenary combat style that focuses on deadly strikes. Oh, did we mention that he’s ripped a tank wide open with his bare hands? Yeah, he’s pretty dangerous. His brother in arms, Lieutenant Clark Still, is a pretty dangerous dude too. Clark also trains in mercenary combat style, but he’s geared more towards wrapping his opponents up like a pretzel and slamming them. That being said, he’s calmer and more level-headed than Ralf and just as formidable. Lastly, we have the cold and professional operator Leona Heidern. Leona is the adopted daughter of Commander Heidern who uses a hybrid fighting style that combines martial arts with Heidern style assassination techniques. Although she is simply a soldier, she has the powerful blood of Orochi running through her veins and must keep her emotions in check to prevent bad things from happening. She’s not a total ice queen though, because Leona is very loyal to the Ikari Warriors and will fight to protect her friends.

Also, don’t forget to get ahead of the competition and download the free demo. Practice local versus with seven characters (Kyo Kusanagi, Mai Shiranui, Iori Yagami, Sylvie Paula Paula, King of Dinosaurs, Shun’ei, and Nelson) before the game comes out on Aug. 23!

No GravatarGOG.com sent out the following press release

 

GOG.com and Disney have teamed up to bring three beloved classics
of the 16-bit era to a new generation of gamers and Disney fans. Disney Aladdin,
Disney The Lion King, and Disney The Jungle Book are available now, for Windows,
Mac, and Linux, exclusively at GOG.com.

Previously unavailable to modern gamers, all three titles have been meticulously
updated to be compatible with modern operating systems while preserving the original
graphics, sound, and gameplay. Each game is available separately for $9.99 USD
($8.99 with launch discount), or together as a discounted bundle for $19.99.

Developed during the golden age of platformers, Disney Aladdin, Disney The Lion
King, and Disney The Jungle Book established themselves as hallmarks of the genre,
earning the praise of fans and critics alike for over two decades.

Of course, no mention of these revered platformers would be complete without a nod
to their groundbreaking visuals. With the advent of Digicel technology, hand-drawn
cels from Disney’s animation team brought the characters to life with a level of
vibrancy that was unparalleled at the time, and remains impressive today.

Disney Interactive made its DRM-free, GOG.com debut in October, 2014, and together
they have re-released over a dozen must-play classics, including Star Wars™: X-Wing
Special Edition, Star Wars™: TIE Fighter Special Edition, Star Wars™: Rogue
Squadron, and Sam & Max Hit the Road, to name just a few of the titles that have
become staples of the GOG.com catalog.

Disney Aladdin, Disney The Lion King, and Disney The Jungle Book are available now,
DRM-free at GOG.com

It should be noted that Aladdin is the genesis version, widely regarded as the superior version of the game.

You can check out a trailer for the three releases below

No GravatarAtlus sent out the following PR email detailing upcoming DLC in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

 

It wouldn’t be a Shin Megami Tensei game without plenty of demons. Thankfully, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse has a series record of 450+ demons from various mythologies to fight, fuse, or recruit. If you’re new to the series and this sounds a little complicated, don’t fret. Collecting demons is ADDICTING, and it’s pretty much like that monster catching game everyone’s been playing on their phone… except, no
joke, its way better. When encountering demons in Tokyo such as the fabulous Napaea or strong Centaur, players can fight, negotiate, or flee. While annihilating every single demon may be the knee jerk reaction, negotiating with them opens up a wealth of options that can greatly benefit the party. Choosing to talk to demons opens up a dialogue tree that gives players to opportunity to recruit them or receive items/bonuses. A successfully recruited demon can be summoned to fight alongside the protagonist, but if negotiations fail demons will happily tear you to shreds. Once a demon has been added to the party, they’ll gain experience, new abilities, and stronger attributes with every victory in battle. The protagonists can also learn powerful new skills from demons that level up, but that’s not even the best part about demon collection. Using the Cathedral of Shadows, monsters can be fused together to create even stronger ones! Mix and match or use recommended formulas to create the demon of your dreams (or nightmares)!

* Divine Intrigue – Choose between peace or anarchy while being a pawn in the gods’
chess game.
* Combat Partners – Hunting demons is dangerous, so count on some backup! Alongside
the standard three demons, players will be able to rely on one of seven partners
to help win battles.
* Oodles of Demons – Be on your guard because Tokyo is infested with a series record
450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit.
* Revamped Demon Fusion – Demons will have affinities for certain skills, so players
can better plan the outcome of fusions.
* Classic SMT Combat – Prospective Hunters will exploit weaknesses, boost attributes,
and unlock skill bonuses with the returning Press Turn and Smirking systems.
Oh, and we have information about a ton of DLC we’ll be releasing for the game.

No GravatarIn an interview with Nintendo Life, Rive developer Two Tribes has revealed that the game will be delayed on Wii U and might in fact switch to NX

Having been confirmed during the Spring for a September release on Wii U, PC, PS4 and Xbox One, there’s now some disappointing news for Nintendo fans. Two Tribes has confirmed to us that the Wii U version of RIVE won’t be hitting that window, and at this moment of time doesn’t have a fixed date. Two Tribes is keen to bring the game to Nintendo hardware and it may transition to NX – depending on what the next-gen system actually is – as the studio wants to ensure that the experience reaches its standards of 60fps performance, a benchmark vital to shooters and bullet-hell titles of this nature.

…….

First of all, can you talk us through the reasons and thoughts behind RIVE being delayed for Wii U, or perhaps being moved to NX instead?

It’s very important to us that Nintendo users will get a great version of RIVE, but unfortunately we don’t know at this point when or how we’ll be able to deliver this. There are two main reasons for this, one technical and one business related.

….

The market has also changed. The game was supposed to ship over a year and a half ago, and things are a lot different now. Nintendo is exiting the Wii U market early in favor of the NX which means a long tail in sales is not looking likely. So that is the business part; do you release a game on a platform in its last days or on a new one that’s better suited and can reach gamers for years to come?

 

While this is disappointing , we can hope that Rive will be a success when it does arrive on a Nintendo platform. Whether that be on the Wii U or the NX. It is understandable that many are worried about the long term viability of putting a game on the Wii U with the NX looming, considering that Nintendo is winding down support. That said however, there is still a market of Wii U owners who would like games to play and this would be perfect. Either way, we wish them the best.
