Nightly News Roundup

Pit of despair

Kid Icarus Uprising landed less than two months ago and despite both financial and critical success, Masahiro Sakurai, the game’s creator, has already ruled out a sequel. In an interview with IGN, the Super Smash Bros. creator said, he and his team “pushed a lot into the game in order to let people have this short yet deep experience, but the novelty of that would likely grow thin in the next game.”

Pit had gone missing for over a decade-and-a-half before he joined Mario and company in Super Smash Bros. Brawl in 2008. Let us hope we see Pit in his own adventure once again sometime before 2037.

At least we can look forward to seeing Pit again through the Super Smash Bros. series.

The last limited edition

The Last Story finally hits store shelves in the States this July, only on Wii. Publisher XSEED Games is attempting to give North American gamers a chance to pick up a limited edition of the RPG. Europe received a limited edition earlier this year, which included the game, the steel book case, a soundtrack, and an art book.

The Last Story will be one of, if not the, final must-own Wii game(s) to buy and a steel book case would definitely grab my attention.

    Nintendo is kicking ass in japan! Just look at those sales, even tje wii is doing good with many games in the top 20, also the wii sold more units than the vita, and mario 3d la d, mario kart 7, kid ikarus and monster hunter are still strong. Overall and amazing week in Sales for nintendo. Japanese know how to party and certainly know how to play!

    On sakurAi.. He does great games, but i dont like his attitude, is like he never likes the games he makes, i remember him bitching about having to do another smash game, and now he doesnt want to do another kid ikarus pffft, i hope Ninte do gives this franchise to treasure, i know they can make a better shooter than sora.

    Is it wrong that I’m rather intrigued by the sound of a game called “Conception: Please Have My Children!”?
