Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 receive Australian release frame

Nintendo released a statement today revealing that the sequels to Pokémon Black and White will be released during the spring of 2012 in both Australia and New Zealand. The pair of games have already been confirmed for June 2012 for Japan and Fall 2012 for Europe and North America. Those residing in the Northern Hemisphere should note that spring in the Southern Hemisphere begins in September, so Australia will not be receiving the games before Japan.

Hideo Kojima discusses Metal Gear Solid for Wii U

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima stated that if he makes a game for Wii U, it would have to be specifically for that system rather than porting Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 games.

“Wii U is kind of a special case. The way the player interacts with the device is very different than any other device out there. So if I were to make a game for the Wii U, it would have to be a unique game.”

      He’s making an excuse not to make games for Wii U.
      “We can’t just port the game over. We’d have to make it from scratch. We don’t have time for that.”

      Many other developers have already said the same thing.
