Space Station Tycoon

The following can be found on IGN. Here is an excerpt from their newest preview of the recently announced Space Station Tycoon:

February 27, 2007 - Namco Bandai Games revealed to IGN Wii on Tuesday that is planning to bring Space Station Tycoon, the latest in its series of Tycoon simulation titles, to Nintendo's new console. The game is developed by Wahoo Studios, whose last project was the well-received Outpost Kaloki X for Xbox Live Arcade, and Space Station Tycoon shares much in common with its predecessor. Players use the Wii remote to manage galactic space stations, all the while increasing their income. The game comes to life with a unique storyline that revolves around witty banter and humorous plot progression. Space Station Tycoon is set for a summer 2007 release on Wii.

Click here for the rest.

My Thoughts:

Add yet another game to Wii's library. This title looks rather interesting and I cannot wait to here more about the title. It is great to see Namco Bandai throw their hat into the ever growing 3rd party developer list that the Wii has.

I also have a feeling that this isn't the last announcement that we will here this week. Keep it locked to Gameonrevolution.

More Titles on The Way For Wii

The following is a report from Nwiizone.

These are due for release in second quarter 2007, DDI will follow these 6 with another 6 later in the year.

My Thoughts:
It's such a wonderful thing to see a ton of 3rd party support this early on in the Wii's lifecycle. It seems like every 3rd party, one way or another, has thrown their support Wii's way and it's only going to get better gamers. Since the Wii has already sold upwards of 5 million systems, it wont be long until we see everyone jumping on the Wii bandwagon. Stay tuned Nintendo fans. The grass is getting greener.

Shvitzel's Forever Blue Preview

Looks like Shvitzel has come through yet again with an amazing preview. Enjoy this lengthy, but incredible preview.

Nintendo has successfully launched the Wii now and sales show no sign of stopping anytime soon. And yet, we’ve now entered that drought of games that always occurs right after a system’s launch and usually begins in January for any console. However, the silver lining on this dark cloud is what will be coming by the end of 2007. We’ve got a big titles coming like Battalion Wars II, Super Mario Galaxy, Brawl, but the focus of this discussion will be a less known title, one that has been around since we first saw footage from Wii games. Today, we’ll be discussing:

Forever Blue

The game is published by Nintendo but developed by a small company in Japan called Arika. Arika was founded by former Capcom employees and brought a few Street Fighter games and Mega Man games to consoles. Oh, they also made some games called Everblue for the PS2, but more on that later.

Footage of Forever Blue was first seen in the big E3 video comprised of Wii games last year and again at the Nintendo conferences held around the world in September. This footage was significantly improved and offered some new sights, but still, the footage was limited to about eight seconds.

The game, to the public’s knowledge, takes place in the ocean or in the sea where you, a scuba diver, can interact with the animal life and investigate it. Footage of the game has shown our friendly character swimming amongst whale sharks and manta rays around beautiful coral backgrounds. There was also a small clip of footage with a first person perspective showing a fish around coral. The Wiimote is supposed to be used in a variety of ways to perform diving maneuvers, but no controls have been confirmed at this time.

Nintendo has said that the ocean and weather in the game will change depending on the time of day and season. This probably means that at different points of the day and during different seasons, you’ll be able to see different fish and marine life. You could compare this to being like the fishing in Animal Crossing. Also, the game will be featuring Wi-Fi so you and friends can meet up and dive together!

As I said earlier, Arika developed some games for the Playstation2: Everblue and Everblue 2. Do the names sound familiar? Yeah, I thought so. IGN reported on this in early January and they believe that due to the history of Arika and the title of the game, Forever Blue will be either a direct sequel or a Wiimake of the game. The titles received minimal reviews from IGN, who said that the experience was very fun, "a sometimes beautiful scuba diving experience, but lacked character and story development." Perhaps this is Arika’s chance to redeem themselves while giving the Wii an exciting and innovative, although un-conventional title. But then again, isn’t that what the Wii is all about?

The game is due to hit in Japan in 2007 and it is presumed it will hit in the U.S. by 2007's end as well.

Now, I’m going to sit down with Kaiser_Glider to have a little discussion about this game. We each ask a question and then respond to the other’s response. It’s a little something new we’re trying in previews, so we’ll see how it goes. Let us know if you like the debate! So, I ask the first question:

Shvitzel: How do you think this will affect sales on the Wii? Will it draw in more nongamers? Attract traditional gamers?

Kaiser: I really don't see this title garnering much attention really, not from gamers, and not from non gamers. The problem with these kind of games is the lack of marketing and the fact that only people who are willing to search al of the information regarding the title will know it.

Shvitzel: That's an excellent point. This game has gone under the radar for this long and there is no evidence of that changing anytime soon. However, I feel that this has the potential to be a sleeper hit, something we saw a lot on the GCN. That might inspire people to pick it up a few years after it launch. Also, once we get more footage of it and Nintendo starts to comment more on it, the response to it might change.

Kaiser: Oh most definitely, if Nintendo decides to hype this game up then the response and the attention will go up; there is nothing wrong with sleeper hits, but I can't help but think that the lack of sales that these games have will affect the company, not developing a sequel, prequel or whatever, afterall without solid sales there is no future.

Shvitzel: I think that there always is the chance for the game to show up again. Everblue didn't sell well and it would appear that Arika is already trying again.

Kaiser: Yeah, and chances are this Forever Blue will be kind of a remake, or so it seems. The game has a lot of potential, IGN confirmed online play when the title was first announced and also it seems the graphics look amazing; this would make a title a little better known, but it doesn't seem that way.

Second question:

Kaiser: What makes this game interesting to you? Is is the fact that it's a different kind of game, is it the thought of exploring the vast ocean with friends, or what would you say has gotten your attention?

Shvitzel: I don't know what about it is so appealing but from the moment I first saw the video of it, I was so intrigued. I guess it is just because the title appears to be so un-conventional. It is different. It isn't what we've played time and time again. Wi-Fi sounds good and I'm sure it will be fun, but it's just the premise that has me so interested. I'm eagerly awaiting more news because everything I've heard this far has been only kept me interested.

Kaiser: The game really seems fun, in a not so conventional sort of way, similar to what the Touch Generations on the DS is doing, titles that are "out of the norm" per say, but turn out to be pretty fun. What has gotten me excited about Forever Blue is the fact of exploring the ocean, be it with a friend or alone, and maybe, just maybe take snapshots and send them to friends on my Wii Address Book, just like I told Kezay. As I said before the game has a lot of potential.

Shvitzel: I think they should be called Point Generations! It's un-conventional, but looks fun. That's just what Nintendo seems to have a lot of the time. Hopefully, titles like this will continue to pop up. Who knows what the next one will be....

So, what do you all think of this title? Interested, or would you rather have another more traditional title? Why are you interested if you are? Also, what are your responses to Kaiser and my conversation? Does this title have the power to attract nongamers or traditional gamers?

It seems like Nintendo was looking for a hit, and I think they found it. What about you?

*New Gameonrevolution Podcast Coming Tonight!*



Cryptic Words From Matt C

A portion of Matt Casamassina’s latest blog post states some really interesting vague facts about upcoming unannounced projects that are making their way to Wii. Although nothing specific was discussed, he had some very positive things to say. Check it out:

There are some potentially crazy-awesome games coming down the pipeline for Wii, by the way. You guys have no idea. I know that’s vague — has to be, but I’ve seen some stuff that you simply have no idea even exists and frankly, if you did, you’d flip out. Comments like these have a way of backfiring on me and i’m sure some people will be annoyed that I’ve even brought up, since I’m unable to give even a hint about the projects in question. Others will undoubtedly say that I’m merely making crap up because there’s no way anybody can disprove statements that are intentionally so unrevealing. But whatev. I know that if I was in your position, I’d be happy just to know that some very cool, unexpected stuff is brewing somewhere way behind-the-scenes. I swear, when this stuff finally shows up, I’ll let you know that I blogged about it way back when. In the meantime, this is probably good material for the IGN Wii message boards......

...Next week should be fun. We've got some companies stopping by to show us some Wii games. We'll be announcing a new project or two during the week. Nothing earth-shattering-major, so don't hype yourselves up, but kind of neat all the same. And if we can ever actually play them, games like SSX will be reviewed. By the way, EA never announced its new Wii project, did it? That must be forthcoming, too

Keep it here and I promise we will keep you informed. Game ON.

Neo Geo coming to the Wii’s Virtual Console! More

The following report was from the good guys over at Codenamerevolution.

Nintendo has confirmed that in Japan, Neo Geo games will soon be available via the Wii’s virtual console in the coming months! The Neo Geo, a video game console from SNK, was one of the most expensive systems around that survived through a cult following with classics from King of Fighters to the Metal Slug series. It’s unknown how many Wii Points a Neo Geo title would cost, but even at 1200 Wii Points, it would easily be worth it as some games at the time cost around $200 and are selling for around $300 on eBay. With Neo Geo being supported, this proves to skeptics that the Wii’s architecture is in fact capable of handling Neo Geo emulation! It’s unknown as to when Neo Geo games will hit state-side and Europe.

Nintendo has also re-confirmed MSX games for the VC. The MSX was a system released in Japan that first brought the Metal Gear series.

My Thoughts:
"I'm speechless". Bring it to the states Nintendo. "Do it, do it, do it."

January Console Sales - Nintendo’s Official Press Release

Following a story that was run earlier on the site, Nintendo's official press release has been....released. Read it below.

Nintendo’s new Wii™ has become the best-selling video game system of any kind in January in the United States, and the fastest-selling new-generation home system. According to the independent NPD Group, Wii sold through 435,503 systems to customers in its January reporting period. By comparison, that’s 70 percent higher than any other new video game system in its first January of availability during the last 10 years.

In addition, Nintendo DS™ once again triumphed as the top-selling portable system, with nearly 239,000 hardware and more than 2.4 million software units sold. In combination, Nintendo game systems accounted for nearly as many unit sales (46 percent of the total market) as those of all other manufacturers combined.

The continuing success of Wii and DS demonstrates that the public has embraced Nintendo’s philosophy of entertaining current gamers in new ways, and expanding gaming for the masses. Four of the top 10 best-selling games in January were for Nintendo systems, both home and portable.

The only limit on Nintendo’s success is the availability of Wii and DS systems, which continue to sell out as fast as Nintendo can ship them. Shipments are being made continuously to feed the huge demand around the country.

President's Day Palooza!

Hello gamers, check this out! Our good friends over at NES Online are holding a Presidents Day Palooza! Check out the info below and show your support and make sure you drop by. Thanks again for the e-mail Havortexdude, and good luck!

This Monday, in an effort to gain more members, make NES Online more active, and provide something for people to do on their day off from school, I am holding something I call the NES Online President's Day Palooza. The President's Day Palooza starts this Monday at 10 am eastern time until 10 pm eastern time. Here are the scheduled events:

10 am to 12 noon: The festivites end with some online gaming. You got everyone's friend codes and Wii Numbers earlier so go in the NES Online Chatroom and arrange a game.

12 noon to 2 pm: Break time. Eat Lunch, or do something else. I will be gone from 12 to 3, anyways.

2 pm to 3:30 pm: Get your DS or DS Lite ready and go near your Wii. It's time to get in the NES Online Chatroom and exchange Wii Numbers and Friend Codes.

3:30 pm to 5 pm: Post like crazy! Post in every topic you can and try to rank up once, twice, or more than that.

5 pm to 8 pm: Take a break and eat dinner or whatever else you n eed to do.

8 pm to 10 pm: The festivities end with a Special Chat in the NES Online Chatroom. We will have people from various gaming websites/blogs attend.

If everything goes well, it should be a fun day. It may be President's Day, but we don't have to celebrate the Presidents of the US. In fact, we're going to celebrate the Presidents of Nintendo, like Satoru Iwata and the President of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime. It's going to be a great day, so please tell everyone you can about this special day. I can't wait!
