I bet Zelda's release date is one of the things that Nintendo will announce during today's supposed retailers conference.

**** YES!
(I'd have used a blink tag if there was one)

Now please be localized. THIS IS NISAAAAAAAAA.

Ar Tonelico 2? Did it do well in the US or something?
It's my 1 imported copy! And the one I forced a friend to buy! I knew it! :lol

MySims has a different name in Japan?
Yeah, it's called "Boku to Sim no Machi" = Me and the town of the Sims.

Speculation time...
Phantom Hourglass is due out on a Saturday.
That's pretty unusual unless they release new hardware, so I guess they're gonna announce a new DSlite colour or something.

Which likely indicates a fall release for NA, as if we needed another great game to steal away our monies.

At least, I hope it's great, haven't seen or heard much about it in a while.
 
#21
Yeah, it's the GC game.
Some details of the game are in the mag, so I guess it's coming out this summer, but I dunno the date yet.

Zelda snap uploaded in first post, sorry about the poor quality.

Atelier Lise (DS) 6, 5, 7, 6
Well that sucks. Another Luminous Arc situation where I was liking the design from the looks of things, but I guess it didn't translate to a great DS game.


Power of Observation Training, though, now there's an interesting concept.
 
#26
Can anybody say whether that article mentions Zelda's control scheme? As in, still only stylus control, or was the conventional method added?

Surprised NISA hasn't went out of business yet. There must be a bigger market for subpar animu RPGs than i once thought.

DK Taru Jet Race = Wave Race? [edit: nevermind]

Now this is what I call an epic thread.
Rune Factory 2 is hot although Im still waiting to play the first one.
Zelda is a total suprise launch.
The new Nintendo training game is also a suprise and should sell billions.
And finally...
OUENDAN! 2!

My mom tells me Im not supposed to hear this many good things at once because I get too excited.
