OC ReMix's FF6 Kickstarter brought back from the grave

We didn't report on it originally because we didn't want to jump the gun on any new developments, but OverClocked ReMix's Final Fantasy VI album Kickstarter was shut down a while back, way after it had blown past its target g...

La-Mulana IS coming to WiiWare after all on September 20!

Good things come to those who wait! When Nicalis decided that it would not be publishing the WiiWare version of La-Mulana, it felt like a bitter end to an extensive but ultimately fruitless dev cycle. It was eventually releas...

Fifty Shades of Grey got b*tch slapped by Hyrule Historia

Who says there's no justice in the world? Just yesterday, we learned that the highly demanded Zelda bible Hyrule Historia is being localized for the US, UK, Australia, and certain other parts of Europe. I originally used the ...

OH MY GLOB! WayForward is making Adventure Time for DS! photo
OH MY GLOB! WayForward is making Adventure Time for DS!
by Tony Ponce

I'VE SOILED MY TUNIC! COMPLETELY BY CHOICE!

That's right! You heard me! WayForward will be making a game based on Cartoon Network's Adventure Time, and I couldn't possibly be any happier! This is, like, the perfect marriage ever!

Series creator Pendleton Ward tweeted the good news just a while ago. At first, he said it was a 3DS game, but subsequent tweets clarified that it's for the vanilla DS and will arrive later this year. It's a shame that the game won't be specifically for the newer hardware, but whatevs!

What will the game be about? Who knows, but Pen will be working closely with the WayForward folks to make sure everything is totally algebraic. And now, a bunch of doodles courtesy of Mr. Ward.

(Thanks for the notice, rexwolf, Yamilia, and Tim!)

Ace Attorney film director planning worldwide release photo
Ace Attorney film director planning worldwide release
by Tony Ponce

What a glorious week it's been so far! First, Ace Attorney 5 is a really real thing, and now this bit of concentrated awesome. What do we have in store for tomorrow? Localization confirmation of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney perhaps?

The Ace Attorney movie premiered a few days ago at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in the Netherlands, where it was received extremely well. The film's subtitles used the characters' Western names as opposed to the Japanese ones, which director Takashi Miike confirmed as part of plans to release the film worldwide with region-specific dubs and subs. That... makes me happy.

Film site Twitch goes on to say that the film runs over two hours long but that not a minute is wasted. The narrative is packed, the characters are deliciously hammy, and the hairdos are stars in and of themselves. Everything sounds wonderful. I can't wait!

Ace Attorney 5 is happening! photo
Ace Attorney 5 is happening!
by Tony Ponce

Please, try to contain yourselves!

Technically, only Gyakuten Saiban 5 has been announced with no word on an international release. Capcom kept Ace Attorney Investigations 2 from us; those butts in Japan better not hold out on us again. No platform has been announced, but I'm going to take a wild guess and say it will be on 3DS.

That's just half the announcement, though. The other half is that the first three Ace Attrorney games are getting an HD release on iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad, with Android versions also planned. Again, no international word yet.

Still, YAY!

Fatal Frame 3DS spin-off to spook America on April 13

Okay, so Fatal Frame 4 never left Japan, and the Wii remake of Fatal Frame 2 seems to have completely vanished. Tecmo Koei and Nintendo wouldn't keep holding out on the West forever, would they? Looks like they've finally co...
