To conclude this week, here’s an overview of the news ‘you might have missed’ and of that which ‘just came in’.
*Sonic and the Black Knight will be targeted at a younger and more casual audience than the other Sonic games. This was said by Sonic Team’s Tetsu Katano. If that means the frustation level will be way below that of Sonic Unleashed, that’s sounds good to us. Check out some recent media HERE.
*High Voltage software reports that the MotionPlus hardware will -after all- not be supported in The Conduit. Tests were run with MotionPlus controlled melee weapons, but High Voltage were unhappy with the results.
*Virtua Tennis 2009 will also come to the Wii. The game was originally announced for the PC, XBOX 360 and PS3 but SEGA now confirmed that the game will also be released on the Wii. The game will have roughly the same new features as the next generation versions and even the release date will be the same; May 2009.
*Yet another 7th Dragon trailer? You better believe it.
*MadWorld is nearly here. Check out some more screenshots in anticipation of what might be another SEGA hit on the Wii.
*Also nearly here is Yakuza 3. Check out some of its Japanese commercials.
*Review score update:
-The House of the Dead: Overkill: 8/10 (Videogamer)
-The House of the Dead: Overkill: 4/5 (G4 X-Play)
-The House of the Dead: Overkill: 8/10 (Gamespot)
-Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis collection: 4.5/5 (Gamepro)
’till next week!
