EGM has the full reveal, including over 20 screenshots and interviews with 300 and Watchmen director Zack Snyder, original Watchmen illustrator Dave Gibbons, and veteran comics author/End Is Nigh scripter, (and Alan Moore's original mentor on the Watchmen series) Len Wein. In fact, EGM went all the way out to Copenhagen, Denmark to visit with the development team, Deadline Games (which features an international cast of talent, including one designer who worked on Shenmue, Super Monkey Ball, and F-Zero GX).

Kai and Zero to Adventure with Elebits on DS in Late Summer

Konami has announced that it will be releasing Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero on August 12th, 2008 for the Nintendo DS. A direct sequel to the Wii title, it takes place in a universe where humans live in harmony with small energy-producing beings known as Elebits. Eponymous characters Zack and Kai must use the magic powers of the Elebits to help them along their quest to find an even more powerful breed, the omega Elebits. Along the way, they'll encounter puzzles which require puzzle solving, freezing running water, and using light to cast away the darkness in order to continue their quest. Other details are few, but the DS title will feature a multiplayer option for head-to-head competition over the internet. Locally, the game can support up to four players for battle.
