Epic Mickey the Power of Illusion; More Screenshots!

They show more Disney characters featured in the game too, like Jiminy Cricket (from Pinocchio) and Tinkerbell (from Peter Pan), as well as the ‘no not Malecifent honest’ character Mizrabel, who was the villain in the original Castle of Illusion game.  Have a look:

Why does the main villain in this series always seem to take the appearance of a random well known female Disney villain?

Wondered what a Pinocchio, Mickey Mouse and Beauty and the Beast crossover would look like? Well here’s your answer. Interesting, Mr Cricket doesn’t seem to even show up on the top screen, and it looks a bit odd if you ask me.

Another screenshot. Seems to be of a haunted house/castle level, and helps confirm that those weird Mushroom creatures seem to be enemies.

Travelling across the rooftops.  I’m going to assume this level is based on Peter Pan, the short part of the story before they reached Neverland.  More Mushroom enemies too, and they look really out of place in this location.

Mickey talks to Goofy on the pirate ship.  Of interest are the Pete shaped Thwomp like creatures, there’s definitely some inspiration taken from the Mario series in this area!

So yeah, there are some new screenshots of Epic Mickey the Power of Illusion.  It really does look like a neat 2D platformer, with a fantastic art style and a level of charm almost unheard of  in today’s 2D platformers.  And hey, it’s even a crossover without all the angst and drama of the Kingdom Hearts series, which is nice to see!

Want another Golden Sun game? Make yourself heard!

You know how people were thinking Golden Sun Dark Dawn was the end of the series and how the fans still want more games?  Well Camelot’s response to that is quite interesting, it’s that if enough people request one, they’ll presumably make a sequel.

From an interview about Mario Tennis Open (because the same company made that game and Golden Sun), they said this:

A big reason for us making RPGs comes from the requests from all the people who have enjoyed our RPGs in the past. Perhaps if there are enough Nintendo users asking for another game in the Golden Sun series, then this will naturally lead to the development of such a game.

and

But of course, if there are enough people saying that we really must create another game, then we may just have to listen to them. Still, you would need to give me a bit of time to work on ideas for the story before we could release a fourth game in the series.

You know what this means!  Want another Golden Sun game?  Go begging Camelot for one and start your petitions now!  As they said themselves, if enough people request one, Camelot might have to give in and make one!

Animal Crossing 3DS still in development

Good news Animal Crossing fans!  Despite the game being a complete no show at this year’s E3 and all the fears about what happened to the game (understandable given how nothing has been said about it for a few months), Nintendo of America/Reggie can at least confirm the game is still in development.

As they said:

Animal Crossing is a game that is in development.

So look on the bright side everyone, it’s now confirmed the game isn’t cancelled, just being worked on and presumably delayed a bit longer.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate; More News (possible release date confirmed)

Two main things to see here.  First of all, here’s another piece of artwork that goes with the game, presumably one which Konami have officially released quite recently:

The next and more interesting bit of news however is a bit more interesting, at least to the people who visit this site.  Apparently, it’s rumoured it’ll be released on September 30th of this year.

Considering it’s a Spanish gaming site, it’s best to presume that this date would be the one used for the PAL version’s release, aka the release date in the UK/France/Spain/Germany/anywhere else in the general region. It seems like quite a plausible release date too, given that most new 3DS games shown at this year’s E3 seem to be coming out sometime during September, and it’d make quite a bit of sense in general for this title to come out just a month before halloween.

So what do other people here think of the latest artwork released?  And is September 30th a likely release date for Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate?

Code of Princess; English Version Footage

Thanks to BN Games, we can now see the first ever video footage of the English translated version of this upcoming 3DS title (which was announced at this year’s E3).  So if you were wondering how the game worked and what everything meant in the Japanese versions screenshots, watch the video below:

How is this game?  Does it look good enough that anyone here wants to buy the English version once it’s released?
