Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 6's rival prosecutor revealed in new Famitsu scans: It's been a few months since Capcom first revealed Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 6 in Famitsu. Since then, fans have run wild with speculation. Apollo Justice and his Chords of Steel have been confirmed to be making an appearance in Nick's latest adventure. An appearance from Maya has been hinted at with the news that part of the game will take place in Kurain, but Maya and Pearl haven't been officially confirmed. Famitsu is back with more Ace Attorney news. While fans are still waiting on Maya to be announced, Capcom has revealed the name of Nick and Apollo's latest rival prosecutor. Nicknamed the "Funeral Prosecutor," Nayuta Sadmahi is who the beloved ace attornies will be facing off against in the upcoming adventure. Nayuta believes that a guilty verdict means salvation and a peaceful rest for victims. The partial scans that have been made available so far from Famitsu have curiously kept the prosecutor's gender ambiguous. While the screenshots look like Nayuta's a male, the text describing the character in the magazine has kept both possibilities open. Sadmahi's gender aside, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 6 will bring even more turnabout cases to fans when it releases. Japan is currently looking at a 2016 release for the second 3DS Ace Attorney game. The franchise's official Twitter account confirmed the title will be coming west, but no release date has been announced. Comment on this article (0)

Final Fantasy IX is now available for iOS and Android, PC release coming soon: Right as the door was closing on 2015, Square Enix announced that the final game from the PlayStation Final Fantasy era would be coming to Steam and mobile devices this year. It's now February and Final Fantasy IX is now out for iOS and Android devices. Zidane, Blank, and Marcus have left Lindblum to once again kidnap Princess Garnet til Alexandros on a mobile device near you. Final Fantasy IX brings a story of a royally ordered kidnapping turned adventureto save the world to your nearest iOS or Android device. Originally released in 2000, the title was a success in Japan, but didn't quite do so well in the US despite positive reviews. Square Enix continued to push forward despite the low US sales, re-releasing IX in 2010 on Sony's PlayStation Network as a PSOne Classic with no major updates from the original release. Unlike VII or VIII, Zidane's tail in IX never received a PC release. The lack of a PC version will soon be rectified, as Final Fantasy IX is scheduled to launch on Steam in "early 2016." For franchise fans who haven't played the game yet or who just can't wait for the PC version, Final Fantasy IX is available now on the Google Play and Apple App stores. The mobile release will run you $16.99 and comes with an autosaving feature. Seven different game booster options have been added, such as increased speed and even no encounters for those of you rushing to get Excalibur II. Comment on this article (0)

Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians development halted for the foreseeable future: In case you're wondering why Kickstarter backers are up in arms over Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians, there's a good reason for it. The strategy RPG was narrowly funded in 2014, giving fans of the genre hope for a new epic tale. Playdek had teamed up with SRPG mastermind Yasunori Matsun to create a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy Tactics, so many of us were excited by that prospect alone. Unfortunately, those plans have come to a screeching halt following some troubles at Playdek. The developer is now down to a single inernal team, meaning an unknown number of projects have been put on hold or delayed. Unsung Story is regrettably one of those projects, sparking a multitude of questions and refund requests from Kickstarter backers. The Kickstarter update from Playdek announced that the company had lost a few key staff members that led to the move. They also cited the "financial strength" of the company, which raised eyebrows from backers as they'd like to know where the money raised specifically for Unsung Story went. Playdek went on to say that they would pursue the possibility of outsourcing development for the strategy title, but no guarantees have been made. The gradual rollout of the game announced last year is still the plan for Unsung Story's eventual release, but this setback means the dates  Playdek mentioned in that update have been affected. For now, the company has no idea when the Kickstarter title will ever see the light of day. Although the gradual release is still Playdek's goal for the game, they have no idea when that will be possible. A number of backers for the project are understandably displeased with this unfortunate turn of events, as Unsung Story has effectively been all but outright cancelled. One backer has allegedly filed a complaint with their state's Attorney General for fraud. Hopefully things turn around and Unsung Story gets released without having suffered a significant blow because of Playdek's troubles, but at this point it seems unlikely. Comment on this article (0)

Pokkén Tournament is compatible with all amiibo, cards and figures unlock in-game items: Back before Pokkén Tournament's global release was announced, rumors popped up regarding the game's compatibility with near-field communication technology. Nintendo recently confirmed that the rumors were true via their official website. The Wii U Pokémon brawler will accomodate every amiibo card and figure that has been released to date. Unfortunately, sticking your fancy Lucina amiibo will not bring the blue-haired swordsman into Pokkén Tournament. Instead, each amiibo figure or card is said to unlock an exclusive in-game item. Whether these items are fashionable accessories or power-ups for the various Pokémon fighters is currently unknown. There is also no word on whether Pokkén Tournament will receive its own series of amiibo figures outside of the already-announced Shadow Mewtwo card that can be used to unlock Shadow Mewtwo before beating the game's campaign. Pokkén Tournament is set to launch for the Nintendo Wii U next month. Gamers across the world will be able to pick it up and fight it out on March 18. Comment on this article (0)

Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo looks like it will be episodic: When Pikachu put on his detective hat and began acting like Sherlock Holmes,  everyone fell in love with his voice. His adventures in Great Detective Pikachu:Birth of a New Duo have begun, but the short length of the title appears to be just the beginning. It seems the game takes about five hours to complete, but Mewtwo doesn't want you to think Pikachu's adventures as a detective are over just yet. When players reach the end of the game, Mewtwo shows up and leaves you with a mysterious "To Be Continued..." screen. Great Detective Pikachu launched yesterday in Japan for the price of 1200 yen, or about $10 USD, so the short length of the title makes sense for the small price tag. What we don't know is how many more episodes are planned and how much they'll cost. Nintendo has yet to confirm the title will indeed join the likes of the Final Fantasy VII remake or the upcoming Hitman title by becoming an episodic release, but the abbreviated length and to be continued screen seem to tell that story for us. There are no currently announced plans to bring Great Detective Pikachu to the west. Nintendo may be waiting for the full series to be released in Japan prior to localizing the game for a single, full release in the  west, or they may be working on localizing each part as they become available. For our Japanese readers, Great Detective Pikachu is available now on the 3DS eShop. Comment on this article (0)

Japan reportedly facing Wii U shortages after better than expected holiday sales: In a rather interesting turn of events, the Wii U is reportedly having trouble staying on store shelves in its home nation. Yes, the very same system that took nearly three years to sell ten million units is suddenly facing a shortage all across Japan. The reason why the Wii U is suddenly so scarce is anyone's guess, but it's very possible higher than anticipated holiday sales have a hand to play in this sudden turn of events. The system sold 146,348 units in Japan to end 2015. Combine that with the 47,890 Wii U consoles sold two weeks prior and the week in between that we didn't report and the system's sold almost 200,000 units in one month. Given the Wii U's average weekly sales usually hover around the 10,000 mark, it's not too far of a stretch to imagine that retailers went through their stock much faster than Nintendo anticipated. Even Amazon Japan is having trouble keeping the console in their warehouse, although third party sellers operating through Amazon may still have some available. How long the shortage will last or what actually caused it is anyone's guess, but it's unlikely to have anything to do with the NX. Nintendo is yet to begin divulging information about the upcoming successor to the Wii U, although analysts speculate we could be looking at a holiday 2016 launch. Whatever the cause for the shortage is, Nintendo is almost certainly looking to resolve it as fast as possible. Comment on this article (1)

Broken Rules is interested in porting Undertale to the Wii U for Toby Fox: Last week, Undertale's creator revealed that Nintendo approached him about possibly porting his game. Toby Fox tweeted out that he's interested in a Wii U port, but he's not a programmer and Game Maker doesn't have an option to export projects for use on Nintendo platforms. This news was met with excitement from fans of the role playing title, a number of whom have expressed interested in a 3DS version. Indie developer Broken Rules has since extended an offer to Fox to do the necessary programming to bring Undertale to the Wii U. Broken Rules already has experience with the Wii U, having ported Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition to the platform. The developer also created the launch titlte Chasing Aurora for the Wii U, so it isn't like they have no experience in programming game from scratch compared to just porting existing code. Fox hasn't issued a statement in response to the offer. Things are looking up for Undertale fans. If Fox decides not to work with Broken Rules, there's always the possibility another developer may extend a similar offer. If a deal is reached, Wii U owners could be experiencing the beloved title sooner rather than later. Comment on this article (0)

Earthbound-inspired Knights and Bikes announced, save the island and defeat spirits: What do Earthbound, Ratchet and Clank, LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway all have in common? At first glance, nothing but "video games" comes to mind. Newly-developed indie studio Foam Sword, comprised of former Media Molecule and Insomniac Games developers, Rex Crowle and Moo Yu, hopes to change that with their recently announced title Knights and Bikes. Knights and Bikes is the story of two young girls on a quest to save their home -- the island of Penfurzy. A legendary relic, the island's tourist incentive, is proven to be fake. Nessa and Demelza, along with Captain Honkers the Goose and a great hero with a tiny head who calls himself the Pickle Knight go on a quest to help the island's citizens, defeat the spirits, and save their home. Foam Sword has stated that Knights and Bikes is inspired by their childhoods and memorable things that have impacted their lives, specifically Earthbound and The Goonies. At first glance, Earthbound's influence on Knights and Bikes is a bit difficult to recognize, but further digging makes it incredibly obvious. The game takes place on an island in the 80s, and the player is simply a regular kid that goes out and fights paranormal creatures with only some friends and a domestic pet to help out. If that doesn't scream Earthbound, then I don't know what does. For now, Knights and Bikes is simply a dream on Kickstarter. Provided the game reaches its goal of approximately $143,000, it is set to launch on PC, Mac, and Linux in April 2017. Comment on this article (0)

Square Enix may be bringing Adventures of Mana to PlayStation Vita: It's finally happened. Final Fantasy Adventure has been reborn as Adventures of Mana. We first covered the game last month, but Square Enix Europe took to their blog today to talk about the remake of the original Mana title. North American fans know it as the Game Boy classic Final Fantasy Adventure European gamers may recognize the game under the name Mystic Quest, not to be confused with Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. If neither of those names ring a bell, Adventures of Mana took the name Sword of Mana when it was remade for the Gameboy Advance. It's now been remade yet again for mobile devices, but Square Enix is also considering a Vita release. A PlayStation Vita version has been widely requested by fans, so Square Enix is looking into whether they can make that happen. There's no guarantee Adventures of Mana will find its way to the Sony handheld, but the team's giving the idea some serious consideration. For now, the game is still available for iOS and Android devices. The mobile release takes everything you knew about the original title and makes it even better. The graphics are vastly improved, showing things that were impossible to show in the original Game Boy release. The soundtrack has also seen vast improvements as the score has been completely rearranged by the game's original composer, Kenji Ito. For the Mana fans out there, Adventures of Mana is avialable now on both the Google Play store and the App Store for $13.99. If a PlayStation Vita release becomes a reality, we'll have news on that front as it becomes available. If Square's plans for a Vita version fall through, nearly everyone has either an Android or iOS capable device. Comment on this article (0)

Undertale creator Toby Fox is considering a Wii U version, but would need help: Who's ready for more Undertale? Nintendo seems to be keen on the idea, as the game's creator Toby Fox announced on Twitter that the company had reached out to him. Apparently, Fox had already contacted Nintendo months ago about possibly doing a Wii U port of the title. Once word got out that Nintendo's developer support contacted Fox, the rumor mill began running wild with speculation that Undertale would be heading to Wii U or the 3DS. There's just one catch that slows the rumor mill down a bit. Toby Fox created Undertale in Game Maker, which doesn't export to Nintendo platforms, and he doesn't know anything about actual programming. That being said, Fox is open to giving a Wii U port a shot. He isn't making any promises at the moment, so fans will just have to wait and see if anything comes of Nintendo's contact. Whether the game would come to 3DS was briefly touched on in the ensuing Twitter conversation with fans, but Fox has no ideas how to use the handheld's second screen and would feel guilty about not using it in some way, so if Undertale does find its way to consoles it would most likely be on the Wii U. Nothing's set in stone, so don't be too disappointed if Undertale stays on Steam instead of branching out to consoles. It's surreal that it's newsworthy that a Nintendo rep tweeted at me. I actually already talked to Nintendo about a port months ago... ^^;;— toby's Fox (@FwugRadiation) February 4, 2016 Comment on this article (0)
