EA Prepping Game for 3DS Launch
If everything we saw at E3 this year is true, it’s safe to say that the 3DS launch is stacked, with more games from third parties than have been published on the Wii in the last year. Add EA to the list, their Play label currently developing a 3DS game called My Garden. According to EA, My Garden is a game that will “allow players to create custom gardens in a variety of unique and beautiful environments.” EA also claims the game to have “vibrant, realistic graphics.” We’ll let you be the judge of that:
“With My Garden, our aim was simple: to make something beautiful that comes to life on the Nintendo 3DS like no other platform,” said Rod Humble, Executive Vice President of the EA Play Label. “We hope to offer a game that’s so immersive that it truly brings the delight of owning a garden to life through a visually stunning 3D experience.”
As previously said, the game will ship along with the hardware launch of the 3DS, a date which won’t be specified until next week. Nintendo-related news from Tokyo Game Show has been rolling out pretty slowly, but remember, the show hasn’t officially started yet, and we expect to see more from Nintendo and it’s new handheld in the next few days.
Nintendo and Twin Galaxies Partner for Nationwide Sin and Punishment High-Score Competition
Nintendo of America announced a special competition for players of cult hit Sin and Punishment: Star Successor today. Nintendo is challenging players to earn the highest possible score in the third level of the game, using the Wii Remote+Nunchuck control scheme. Nintendo is partnering with Twin Galaxies International for this competition, who will verify scores. The winner will receive a customized plaque, two black Wii Remotes, two black Classic Controller Pro’s, and two Wii Zapper controllers, and a chance to be in Guinness World Records 2011: Gamer’s Edition. In my opinion, Nintendo could do better than prizes like that. Who’s to say the winner of the competition doesn’t already have all of those controllers?
The competition runs starting today through October 6th. The game’s online leaderboards will be used to monitor high scores. However, in order to officially enter in the competition, you must submit a video of yourself playing the game. Official rules and other details can be found at the Twin Galaxies website.
