A new video just came out with more details on the Ghostbusters video game that comes out on June 16th. It’s going to be awesome, and I’m going to obtain copies for both Xbox 360 and Wii, as well as the game for the DS. All three feature the same storyline, but with different graphics, and controls, should offer a lot of fun regardless of the system of play.
What a day. It’s been a long and arduous day, but I did manage to find this really great looking trailer for the TMNT fighting game coming out this fall for Wii. This isn’t just a rehash of the old TMNT: Tournament Fighters game that was released on the SNES all those years ago. This is from a creative team that worked on Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Now, the trailer that has surfaced isn’t as action packed as I would have liked, when it comes to the fighting; but the graphics and the feel of the gameplay are about right.
I’d rather have a table of characters like the one in Smash Brothers, but I suppose this will do. Take a look at the trailer after the break, as well as screenshots.
Ubisoft has announced a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for Wii, to be released later this year. The creative team developing it is called Game Arts, who had a hand in preliminary development on Super Smash Brothers Brawl. That is great news, as far as the Ninja Turtles are concerned. Smash Brothers is one of the greatest games ever released on any console, period, and to have this team on the Turtles property speaks volumes for the game.
The first video game that I ever had was Bubble Bobble for the NES. It was and is a very addictive game with a couple of small dragons that attack their enemies by capturing them in bubbles that they spit from their mouths. I just learned about a new game coming soon to WiiWare on Wii.
Four-player Bubble Bobble action. It’s going to contain the 100 old stages from the original NES Bubble Bobble (now available on the Wii Virtual Console), though the graphics have been enhanced. In addition, there will be 100 new stages. That’s 200 total stages, with harder versions of all of them, which I find to be incredibly frightening, as the game seemed almost sadistic at times.
I had never heard of Klonoa before this late last year. When I did hear about it, I wasn’t all that interested in it. But since reading about the game-play mechanics, consider me interested in giving it a shot. This game came out in 1997 on the Sony PlayStation (no wonder I missed it!) and features 2 1/2 dimensional game-play.
Old games being remade for the Wii have tended to be games that were released on other, non-Nintendo, consoles. They also have a tendency to be great games that the developer believes can find a new audience, and perhaps to breathe new life into a property.
