Gotta see if there's any Filena stuff in Akemi Takada's Tir na Sorcha (all-fantasy artwork).

Now, what's the first thing everyone noticed about this cover?


I think Puar's more concerned about being thrown off the dragon and going splat. Rolling Eyes

Not until I get a U.S. release of Mother 3. Mad

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
I wanted the second Another Code (or as you call it, Trace Memory...) to be for DS like the first one was! I like my mystery/puzzle games portable D:

The whole announcement of XSEED getting Muramasa was a key thing on the cover of Nintendo Power and I just went, "ZOMG, WANT."

I'm just glad it's been licensed... It's a major relief, knowing that Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World won't be the only JRPG I have to look forward to in the future for my Wii.

Awesome... finally the Wii is about to be worth the other $100 I paid for it, after Mario, Zelda and Metroid.

It's in that art book. That book was never popular against Kimagure Orange Road in the U.S. I thought that her Filena illustrations were purely for light novels, so I never expected Anime version and even a video game version. I guess I have to check the book again.

If there is no DVD version, then I'll look for LD version.

Cave Story! Woot! Razz

I wonder what the new material entails... though I'm not planning on getting a Wii anytime soon, so sadly I may never find out.

Muramasa looks like magic. The trailer was beautifully well down and I'll be keeping my eye on the game.

lol, poor Glass Joe. King Hippo scared me as a kid, but ...I feel like I'm ready to take on the world.

Well in this context: hardcore = things that aren't Wii Music

Wii Fit is pretty HARDCORE! (See: Nina's comic strip, panel 5)

Odin's Sphere was by far one the most gorgeous action RPG game I have ever played for the PS2 so I'm really excited for the coming of Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Though I don't know if I should be that way considering I don't have a Wii! Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop

Momohime looks sassy to play though, and I hope the game doesn't give off any slowdowns during gameplay.

Oh-My-God! I finally found a reason to hold out on selling my Wii! The ever ever ever slim chance of that Klonoa remake hitting the states. I have it already on the PS1 honestly, but its my favorite game series in all of existance and I will pay Namco another $50 (and keep the Wii) for the privledge of playing it again.

If it comes to America again, I hope that no one wastes this oportunity to play this game. Assuming its the same at the original PS1 version (+updated graphics and sound), we can safely assume another good 3rd party game is heading to the Wii (which, due to rarity of good 3rd party support, is sure to get it noticed this time around in the states).

Cave Story is one of my absolute favorite games ever. The fact that it's freeware makes it even better, but I'm pretty sure I'll be getting this for the Wii. Hopefully there will be some extra content to make it worth spending 10 bucks on.

The Mario RPG games are the only Mario games I can stand. I'm glad to hear we'll be seeing more of those gems - maybe Nintendo will think crazy and reprint Mario & Luigi 2!

Really enjoying the reviews.

Some good stuff that I'm really interested. I might considering the 'Dragonball' game. It looks good. Definitely, 'Oboromuramasa'. Vanillaware rocks! These guys do some really incredible 2-D work. I want to see more from these guys. Would also like to see a DS title from them. But considering their intensive work on their games, (sure folks heard of the problems the PS2, had with 'Odin Sphere', y'know sloooooow down) the DS wouldn't be able to handle it. It's called, we take pride in care in what we do to produce the best possible game even if that means not realizing that the system couldn't handle it until it was finished. I'm going to keep a close eye on these guys.

New DS looks interesting. Does anyone know what the "i" part stands for. It's amazing that the DS has already had 2 face lifts now.

Eien no Filena. Just goes to show you that only in Japan can you get away with the story plots. If that game ever did come here most likely they'd change the story. I wonder if they would have allowed the pseudo shoujo-ai?
