SEGA: No Plans to Bring 7th Dragon III Code: VFD to Europe

Category: Uncategorized

While 7th Dragon III Code: VFD is set to launch on July 12 in North America, SEGA currently has no plans to bring the 3DS JRPG to Europe.

SEGA community manager Dan Sheridan confirmed the lack of release plans during a Q&A session in a recent YouTube video for the upcoming SEGA-published Motorsport Manager.

Even though they cannot confirm a release for Europe, SEGA is aware of the fan demand for the game and they are looking into the feasibility of a European localization.

Nintendo President Claims NX Will Not Be A Successor to the Wii U

Category: Uncategorized

Tatsumi Kimishima

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima recently told Japanese publication The Asahi Shimbun that their next platform, codenamed “NX,” will not be a successor to the Wii U. Instead, it will be another device sold alongside the Wii U and 3DS.

Kimishima’s statement not only echoes former company president Satoru Iwata’s message regarding the DS — that it would be a “third pillar” system to coexist with their home console and Game Boy lines — it is also essentially the same thing Iwata told investors last year.

“Though I cannot confirm when [the NX] will be launched or any other details of the system, since I have confirmed that it will be ‘a dedicated video game platform with a brand new concept,’ it should mean that we do not intend it to become a simple ‘replacement’ for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U.”

And then also awkwardly rotate in a couple of top-down Mode 7 levels because the SNES classic Contra III: The Alien Wars is out today for the New 3DS Virtual Console.

There’s also PokéPark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure out today for the Wii U. Not exactly a game on the top of people’s most wanted list for the Wii U’s Virtual Console, but Nintendo seems to just do their own thing when it comes to choosing what games get brought over.

Comic Style Pikachu

The Pokémon Center online store recently introduced a new line of clothing and accessories featuring the iconic Pikachu in a stylish black and white “comic style” design.

Some of the items are pretty pricey, like the $200 messenger bag or $70 hoodie, but they are arguably some of the best looking things the store has to offer.

Nintendo Logo

In conjunction with Nintendo’s previously announced transition to a company with an audit and supervisory committee, the company will also be updating their corporate charter to better reflect the expanding scope of their business plans.

On June 29, Nintendo will amend their Articles of Incorporation, an official record where a company defines its purpose, to include four new proposed areas of interest for the company:

  • Development, manufacturing and sale of medical devices and health devices
  • Development, manufacturing and sale of computer software
  • Management of and investment in eating establishments, stores and entertainment sites
  • Licensing of intellectual property rights

These additions aren’t a confirmation that Nintendo actually plans to work in these sectors, it just grants them the freedom to diversify their operations.
