Rumor: Sonic and the Black Knight Coming to Wii?

Remember that preview from the 20th Anniversary Nintendo Power, the one which had a mysterious sword and teased Mother 3 and Kingdom Hearts? Well, it looks like someone got their copy and posted the cover online: If it's a fake, then it's a very impressive one.

That said, out of the Jet-ski, frisbee, and other sports (most as of yet unnamed), the one I'm looking forward to most is sword play: One thing this trailer reminds me of, that I hope they do change from the first: Allowing you to face CPU-controlled Miis that you made, rather than a generic lot pre-programmed.

E3 2008: Media: LEGO Batman Developer Walkthrough

LEGO Batman Producer Rich Earl gives us the nickel-tour of Gotham in this video, showing off a bit of the gameplay, including my favorite part: A Batarang that can lock on and hit up to five targets in a single throw. Also, dig the music: It has both Movie and The Animated Series themes going for it. Read More
