I like how it takes them a year+ to re-release SB2 with new characters and a few new stages.

Wtf!?!

This game should be out in a month or two...WINTER!?

I guess porting from PS2 -> Wii is a difficult time-consuming process :(

But they're not even doing anything in the port... really, your "wtf" seemed pretty accurate.

The assault on Megalith was ****ing EPIC, in every sense of the word.
I guess your sarcasm detector is broken. He probably broke it with:

damn another game republic game really is a sony obituary.
which is either true or false, depending on whether you like shitty games.

For them to be taking THAT long with SB2: Heroes, there had better be good amount of content added to make it take that long...

Ah well, I suppose that'll free me up to purchase other things this summer, then.

How about them review scores? I'm interested in seeing how Hokuto no Ken's PS2 port did with the reviewers...

My money's on a traditional RPG. SE's action RPG plate is rather full at the moment with FFVersus XIII, the "you know it's coming" KH3, and FF: Crisis Core.

Probably for the wii/DS, as the demographics are exactly where Disney wants/needs to be, and SE's done well there so far.

Edit: I know wikipedia is highly unreliable, but there's a quote in the KH2 entry that nomura confirmed "multiple" KH projects in the works, and the next one would be announced sometime in '07.

if this is true, odds are pretty high that this "new" project is a KH spinoff, and not a totally new property

Looked interesting at tgs. Blue dragon was made by artoon and turned out decent, so things can change up, eh?

Hey duck, is there any indication of when Capcom will be showing anything Wii related? For that matter, any rumors of some new Wii games coming down the pike?

It appears that Sengoku Basara 2 HEROES will feature anime-style illustrations and artwork instead of the painting style in the original. Anime versons of a total of 30 characters are being prepared.



Persona 3 Fes:

- New Personas include old favorites like Hell's Angel, Empusa, Paz, Calticaya, Sparuna, Alp, and Mara (DICK LORD!!!!! :D)!

What about realtime weapon change?

Realtime weapon change was cool when DMC3 first did it, now everyone and their moms are doing it.

That..and I don't think there are enough buttons.


R. stick - move camera (click to recenter)
L. stick - movement
B - devil arm
A - jump
X - shoot
Y - melee
Left trigger - acceleration modifier
Right trigger - target lock, combo modifier, devil arm modifier
left bump - style change down?
right bump - style change up?
