Sonic and the Black Knight - Nintendo Power Details Revealed

Over the weekend, the cover of the new issue of Nintendo Power started making the rounds, and with it, news of the new title from SEGA, "Sonic and the Black Knight." Now, there's finally some information from inside the magazine to help bring some of the game's mysteries to light. As noted previously, the game comes as a successor to Sonic and the Secret Rings as part of the "Storybook Series" of Sonic games, and is developed by the same team as well; this would be a good thing, one might surmise, given that the flaws of that game were more by design than by bugs or inability to manipulate a camera. The story follows Sonic as he is summoned to the realm of King Arthur by a sorceress named Merlina. But all is not well in Camelot; as the King has become corrupted, and now rules as the tyrannical (and titular) Black Knight. Sonic, aided by a talking sword named Calibur which serves as his mentor, begins his quest to overthrow the Black Knight as a mere knave; in order to have any hope of defeating Arthur, Sonic himself must become a full-fledged knight.

Nintendo Releases Second-Half Line-Up of Games

In an interesting twist (I guess, maybe they do this all the time, and I never noticed), Nintendo has released their US game line-up for the second half of 2008 and into 2009... to Europe. Some highlights included on the list are Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Call of Duty World at War, Guitar Hero World Tour, Skate It, Mushroom Men, two Star Wars games, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers, Sonic Unleashed, Ghostbusters, and quite a bit more. Better still, Nintendo says that this is an "incomplete" list, meaning more titles could sneak their way into the lineup. Here's hoping more from the Big N themselves. For the full bill of goods (as it stands), both good and bad, click the jump. Read More


New Soulcalibur IV Warrior Revealed: Algol

A new warrior has stepped onto the stage of history, and according to character designer Hideo Yoshie, he may be the strongest in the series' history: Say hello to Algol. No, that's not an Engrish take on Al Gore; Algol is the king of an "ultra" ancient civilization. "So, he's wearing a costume from the ancient kingdom that isn't recorded in history," says Yoshie, "and it was really difficult and troublesome to make the design of his costume as so just by looking at it. The final motif of the amour ended up being the 'bird', but there were many other ideas like the lion, cobra, dinosaur and more. I believe the design combined dynamism and splendor, and is very cool." He continues, noting that "His right hand glows red and his left hand glows blue because he holds the Soul Edge in his right and the Soul Calibur in his left. Also he has ten kinds of weapons built in his body and shows a variety of fights never seen before, including flying in the air and sitting in the throne. I want people to have fun by his buzzard actions." "There was an idea for an additional option which he causes an off-site brawl with a pipe chair instead of the throne, but we were not able to put the idea in the game this time." Unfortunate. And finally, Yoshie offers a friendly challenge to fans and players: "By the way, the Algol that shows up in the opening demo is Algol when he was still a human.. That's why his hair has a different colour from within the game. There are some more detailed differences, so please go on and find more differences on him for fun through the game." You can find more pics of Algol at CVG. Read More


Capcom Announces MegaMan Star Force 2 for US

In addition to other information revealed at Capcom's Digital Days comes the word that they are doing what was felt to be an inevitability with the announced release of Ryuusei no Rockman 2 in the US as MegaMan Star Force 2. There will be two versions: Zerker x Saurian (Berserk x Dinosaur) and Zerker x Ninja (Berserk x Shinobi), thankfully removing the need to go to GameStop for a third version. As before, the game spans two worlds: The real, human world and the virtual reality-like EM Wave World, normally invisible to the human eye, and protagonist Geo Stelar can move from one to the other by combining with the alien Omega-Xis to become MegaMan. The game functions much as its prequels do in the Battle Network series of Game Boy Advance games, but from an over-the-shoulder perspective. With the DS' online capabilities, you can exchange Battle Cards with friends, as well as "Brother Band" friend codes that will greatly enhance your power. In addition, by collecting the powers of different "Tribes," MegaMan can transform into a more powerful "Double Tribe" form, and gaining all three for a "Triple Tribe" transformation enables the "Tribe King" form, seen above. Go it alone, and you'll instead get a dark "Burai" transformation. Both versions of MegaMan Star Force 2 will arrive this June at a MSRP of $29.95. Read More
