New Lost in Shadow screenshots

We got a batch of images for Hudson's Lost in Shadow tonight. They show off the eighth area of the game (according to the name of the folder they arrived in) and, apparently, there's a lot of water in the level. I know t...

Birth of Lost in Shadow isn't as messy as actual birth

 Hudson has released the first of a four part documentary detailing the making of its upcoming Wii title, Lost in Shadow.  In this first part, the game's director, designer, programmer, and sound lead discuss the g...

PAX 10: Lost in Shadow deserves a little spotlight
by Jim Sterling

It's looking like a golden year for platformers on the Wii. Sonic Colors, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns and Epic Mickey are all to come, and with such an excellent roster of games, it would be easy to forget this humble little offering from HudsonSoft -- Lost in Shadow

You'd be wise to make a note of this title though, as my time spent with it at its tiny little PAX Prime booth was more than enough to convince me that it could be something very special.

Half a dozen Lost in Shadow screenshot unveiled

A word like "unveiled" gives an air of drama that probably should not be used to describe the release of screenshots. If I go back and change the headline now, I'll have to spend another twenty minutes trying to find a way to...

In April, Hudson announced the third entry (or fourth, if you count Deca Sports DS) in its multi-million-selling Deca Sports series, Deca Sports 3. This time, the franchise is back on the Wii with ten all-new sporting events, although as a sports fan, I feel like Hudson is reaching with a few of these:

  • springboard diving
  • kayak slalom
  • volleyball
  • giant slalom (skiing)
  • log cutting [really?]
  • racquetball
  • air racing
  • lacrosse
  • halfpipe (snowboarding)
  • fencing

Deca Sports 3 is compatible with Wii MotionPlus; in fact, each of the ten sports can be played in Normal mode (Wii Remote alone) or Master Mode (requires MotionPlus). Master Mode, as you probably guessed, presents a stiffer challenge. I had the chance to play air racing and lacrosse last week in New York, and they're pretty fun -- hit the jump for more.

During E3, Hudson announced that it was bringing its Deca Sports franchise -- which has sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide on Wii and DS -- to Kinect this fall. The controller-free compilation of sports offers the following events:

  • snowboard cross
  • beach volleyball
  • figure skating
  • mogul skiing
  • dodgeball
  • paintball
  • archery
  • boxing
  • tennis
  • kendo

As you can see, many of the mini-games in Freedom aren't what you'd typically expect from a sports title. That's because this game has been designed from the ground up for Kinect -- it's not merely a port of one of the Wii Deca Sports games. I saw the game last week in New York, and came away impressed. (Special thanks to PR man Ron Burgess, who suffered through the indignity of the figure-skating mode for me, when he could've picked any of the other, less dainty games.)

Bonk should never have been rendered in 3D

I don't mean to be such a dick tonight, but what is up with these images of the upcoming Bonk: Brink of Extinction? Now, I'll grant you, these aren't screenshots of the final product but it does not look good. I love Bon...

E3 10: Platforming in Bonk: Brink of Extinction

It's been an interesting year for retro games making a return, especially those that were b-level at best. For example, Rocket Knight made an acceptable return in a downloadable platformer, and Nintendo has brought back Kid I...

Lost in Shadow looks like a pretty cool guy. It's a platformer from Hudson in which a boy's shadow climbs a tower. He has to walk along other shadows, aided by Spangle the Sylph who can change light sources to create new shad...

Lost in Shadow is an Adventure with light  photo
Lost in Shadow is an Adventure with light
by Ben Perlee

While last night was a night for Konami, they have a thoughtful policy of including Hudson in the festivities. Off in a separate room, Hudson was showing off a couple of Wi titles they have planned for this year. One of them was the quirky Lost in Shadow.

Equal parts Echochrome and shadow puppets, Lost in Shadow is a game that switches gamers perception on gameplay, and requires them to think outside the box of what they think is really going on on the screen. It is certainly a great basis for an action puzzler, that's for sure. 

Hit the jump for this the light and shadow-based game.

Hudson reveals Deca Sports 3
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Hudson revealed Deca Sports 3 last night and the new entry to the series brings ten new sports games plus some new features to the franchise. Volleyball, racket ball, fencing, lacrosse, logging, springboard diving, halfpipe snowboarding, free style kayaking, air racing and giant slalom all make up the the new sports.

This time around, you'll be able to play the games with the Wii MotionPlus. You'll still be able to play without the MotionPlus attachment, but I found that I had an easier time with the air racing game with the MotionPlus on.

You'll also be able to play online this time around too against two to four players. Only volleyball, lacrosse, racquetball and fencing will be playable online however.

Deca Sports 3 will be out this Fall for the Wii.
