192w ago - Today Mediatonic's Co-Founder & Creative Director Paul Croft has shared a new PS3 and PSP trailer video for Monsters Probably Stole My Princess.
To quote: We are very excited to announce we've confirmed a launch date for our PSP Minis game Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! The game will be released on the 22nd of April at the price of £3.49.
We're also very proud to show the official trailer for Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess!
The game is an upwards-scrolling platformer in which the player must chase down giant fleeing monsters and subdue them by crashing into them three times. More details are available on our previous post on the PlayStation blog.
April 22nd is later than we've announced previously - since I last posted we've been working closely with Sony to resolve a few issues with running the game on the PS3. These are now all sorted and we're super excited about the launch of the game!
192w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has posted up a MLB The Show Opening Day PS3 trailer video today shawcasing the season's first pitch, as follows:
Opening Day is finally here! The 2010 MLB season debuted last night with Yanks and Sox taking center stage at Fenway, with Boston ultimately edging out New York, 9-7.
For those of you who caught the game, the telecast featured multiple airings of our Joe Mauer/Kevin Butler commercial , as well as other in-game mentions – just another way to showcase MLB 10: The Show during big moments in baseball.
I'm also happy to report that The Show is still enjoying some great feedback from the media. Just recently SportsIllustrated.com and the Associated Press posted reviews that are worth checking out, and ESPN.com included the game in their Opening Day Gear Guide.
193w ago - Earlier today we saw a fresh Metroid: Other M video, and now Nintendo has made available a new Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii trailer.
The video comes courtesy of cortjezter via YouTube, and is meant to coincide with a recent play session at Nintendo's office, which reveals footage of the new Rock Mario power-up, a "Light Yoshi" power-up, and some new levels.
Gameplay will be similar to the first Super Mario Galaxy, with a focus on platforming based on and around 3D planets with varying sizes and landscapes. The protagonist Mario will be able to ride the bipedal dinosaur Yoshi, who can use his tongue to swing across gaps, as well as eat different fruits that give him different powers, such as speed boosts, the ability to inflate like a balloon, or reveal secret paths.
While the player retains the ability to collect Star Bits with the blue Star Pointer from the first game, the Star Pointer is replaced by a red dot when riding Yoshi, which allows the player to aim and control his tongue. This can be used for swinging off objects, pulling levers or, like in previous games, swallowing enemies and spitting them out.
Old mechanics will be returning from Super Mario Galaxy, such...
193w ago - Today Nintendo has updated the Metroid.com Web site with a brand new trailer video featuring gameplay from the upcoming Wii game Metroid: Other M.
The video can be seen below courtesy of nintendolife via YouTube, with only a few months to go until the game is released in the US (this summer) followed by Europe later in the year.
The game takes place between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion. Other M opens with a cinematic showing the final battle with Mother Brain at the conclusion of Super Metroid.
After escaping the exploding Planet Zebes, Samus awakens on a Galactic Federation ship. After leaving, she receives a distress call from a dormant "Bottle Ship", which is floating a short distance away from a Federation vessel.
Upon stepping into the ship, Samus encounters a group of GF soldiers, led by Anthony Higgs, who fought alongside her before she left the GF military. She also meets Adam Malkovich, who used to be her commanding officer when she was in the Federation Army.
Something happened that caused Samus to leave the army, causing Adam to be standoffish and guarded, calling Samus an "outsider" and ordering his team not to reveal any details of their mission to her.
193w ago - Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has released the official 3D Dot Game Heroes PS3 trailer today!
To quote: 3D Dot Game Heroes, the PlayStation 3 exclusive that promises to inject retro-saccharin goodness directly into your corneas (those are part of your eyes, whippersnappers), has a full video trailer... And here it is!
So why should you be excited? Aside from the retro 3D visuals, ear-gratifying musical score, and extremely addicting, nostalgic action-adventure gameplay, you mean? Well... BECAUSE IT HAS TRAILER MUSIC!
Did you hear it? Like, the part with the chorus singing in the background? Who cares if the game is awesome (it is, by the way) when you have trailer music with voices chanting in the background!?
Oh, and to address a couple comments that have been popping up in posts relating to 3D Dot Game Heroes:
The huge swords evident in some screens/videos do NOT break the game. It is not a design flaw. You're only that big when you're at FULL health (intuitive, right?), and you'll rarely be at full health for long stretches of time.
Moreover, only near the end of the game will you have a sword THAT large, not to mention one with the ability to penetrate geometry...
