Maybe early this week? Syoboonline has an unusual source, but one he trusts enough to post on, and since he has to keep a reputation, it seems at least trustable enough to discuss; it's not as proven-reliable as Imas's posts that I usually work from, but has the seal of approval from one of the about three big-name amateur blogs.

NEWS

Legend of Zelda: Link's Crossbow Training (** The Japanese for "Adventure" is read 'Daibouken'; the Japanese title for this game replaces that "bou" with the English word "bow", thus both referencing Zelda 2 and making a truly horrible pun.)

All the news stuff makes it hard to believe (new Wii colors, and actual good colors? Nobody ever makes red consoles! Animals in Mario Kart? Star Ocean on 360?), but I want to believe, especially because this:

Would be hilarious.

So is SO4 a three volume game with each volume being named after one of the earlier ones? Or Remakes (which wouldn't make any sense because of the PSP ones)

wasnt there supposed to be some final fantasy info in this issue? What does nomura say?

Nice that another rpg is dropping, though Ive never really bothered with the series, might pick up the psp game though...

High score for GT prologue, would like to play it, but the cost is a bit high in this circumstance...GT5 is day 1

I can't wait to see what those new Wii colors look like if this is true. It's a very smart move by Nintendo... releasing it with Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Japan. With the holiday season and this, Wii sales should be ramping up a lot.

Cool, hope it doesn't suck like SO3 did.
