new naruto game for wii? yes... :D
It's just Gekitou Ninja Taisen EX... already announced.

Maybe the experts can confirm but it looks sorta different from the GCN Narutos... is 8ing not handling it? Maybe it's being done by Dream Factory like the DS fighter?

Holy wow, DQSwords honestly has the best Akira Toriyama art I've seen in a damn long time. (no, I don't like Blue Dragon's art nearly as much...) It's different in a way, I can't put my hand on it. But I like it a lot.

edit: eh, though it's a bad scan, it looks like FFXIIRW more mimmicks something like FFVII in graphical style. I was kinda hoping it to be full 3D. :\

Indeed... I'm not a fan of his characters designs, but I'm liking these ones...

Hajimete no Wii = Wii Play = 7 / 7 / 6 / 8 - (28/40)

If IRC, Wii Play also had a 5/10 in a western magazine.
Quite disappointing.

It got a 91% from OPM and an 8.3 from IGN... It also comes with a Wii remote controller.

Uh... it looks like FFT characters on FF7 backgrounds. Blech!

His name on the scans is "Hero", so either he's nameless or you have the option of naming him yourself.

Yeah, they seem like Toriyama was picking up brain wave interference from Jhonen Vasquez and created this really unique blend of his artwork and gritty punk character design. I totally dig it.

DQ heroes never have default names
Well, I'm sure that with the word "shujinkou", translated as "hero" or "main character", being plastered under the main character's face where the name should go OBVIOUSLY says differently, especially when all the other characters on the page have REAL names.

This publication has lost all credibility.
If you forget about the actual reviews, Famitsu is still one the best sources of informations about upcoming Japanese games. By far.

Would it really matter, the quality of the pictures we're getting here? :/

You misunderstand. These are Jump scans. Jump is a 500 page weekly magazine printed with newspaper quality single-color paper. What we want are Famitsu scans, printed on high quality full color paper!

I really do not understand how Famitsu can afford to print a 400 pg magazine with color on most of the pages (some are newspaper--y). That **** is expensive. AND IT COMES OUT EVERY DAMN WEEK

Huh? Famitsu is just a little over 200 pages every week.

compared to our monthly 90-ish-page PSM that's over half ads, that's pretty darn impressive.

I bet if you took PSM and added the number of ad pages Famitsu has, you would end up with a 200+ page magazine too! :D
