Wreck-It Ralph Comes to Nearly Every Nintendo Console
In an unsurprising move, Disney’s new film Wreck-It Ralph– which ties in several iconic video game mascots, and looks hilariously awesome– will inspire a game to be released on Wii, 3DS and DS all thanks to the fine folks over at Disney Interactive and Activision. In classic, movie-to-game form, Wreck-It Ralph will feature sidescrolling goodness where you play as the misunderstood villain, Ralph, in an attempt to save the day and prove, despite his sometimes villainous ways, he’s a hero, too. If this sort of thing gets you going, you can mark your calendars for the game’s release, which is set for this coming fall.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter Coming to 3DS
If uninspired war games are your thing, and you absolutely adore generic video game titles that could be conjured up by my nine-year-old brother (note, I don’t have a nine-year-old brother), then direct your attention to Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Despite its miserable name, GameInformer.com posted a profile page for EA’s upcoming shooter, indicating it was scheduled to see a 3DS release. On the page, it also mentions Danger Close as the title’s developer, and that the game is slated for a 2012 release date. Interesting. Maybe Medal of Honor will one day be able to, I don’t know, be a good series again, but after the reboot last year, and now this, I can’t help but shake my head in disappointment and wonder just how many cookie cutter FPSs we really need.

Dragon Quest X Gets some Bundle Love
So Dragon Quest X looks pretty gnarly, right? I’ve covered it on a few occasions thus far, and each time I look at the game, or write about it, I get more and more excited. This sentiment applies to the post I’m typing right now. With a Japanese release just over the horizon, Square Enix announced that it has big plans for its coveted franchise’s latest installment. And by big plans, I actually mean a bundle package that includes the Dragon Quest X software, a black Wii, Classic Controller Pro, a Wii USB stick– needed for the game’s DLC and updates– and ¥1,000 Nintendo Points Prepaid card. Though this package is currently exclusive to Japan, an RPG aficionado can dream about it coming stateside, can’t he? In truth, the bundle isn’t all that glamorous– if the console itself was emblazoned with some sort of Dragon Quest moniker, then I’d be frothing at the mouth– but it’s still nice to see Square Enix treating the game’s release with so much prestige. Oh, and that boxart is mega rad. You all know how much I love boxart. Keep rocking, Squenix… keep rocking.
