Konami and Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be coming to the 360 and PS3 early next year, but the game’s producer Yuji Korekado has said that there are currently no plans to bring the Metal Gear Solid 4 sequel to the Wii U.
Apparently the reason has to do with the controller.
“One of the strongest appeals of the Wii U is the GamePad. However, we’ve constructed Metal Gear Rising so you can fully enjoy the game on the controllers whether it’s on the PS3 or the Xbox. So, currently we aren’t thinking about Metal Gear Rising on the Wii U.”
It’s okay. I don’t get it, either.No comments
The latest issue of Nintendo Power gives us our first look at Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate for the 3DS.
Developed by MercurySteam, the same studio that worked on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for the PS3/360, Mirror of Fate retains a few elements from the first game. The hero Trevor Belmont wields his version of Lords of Shadow‘s Gabriel Belmont’s Combat Cross. Players will still be able to upgrade their weapon and unlock new combos to use.
Mirror of Fate will go back to the side-scrolling style of previous handheld Castlevania games. However, it will sport a visual style similar to the 3DS Shinobi game from last year.
It appears that Konami already has another game planned after Mirror of Fate. According to Nintendo Power, the game will have a “climax that will set up the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.”
Expect to hear more about Mirror of Fate soon. The game will be at E3. Maybe we’ll also hear more about how the game will lead into Lords of Shadow 2.No comments

It won’t be easy to get one of the snakeskin-styled Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D 3DS bundles. Rather than merely shipping out a limited number of 3DSes to stores, Konami will be holding a raffle to determine who gets to buy the special bundle.
So, it’s not enough to just win, you’ll also need the cash to back it up. And you’ll need a lot of it. The bundle is priced at ¥22,980 (≈$298 USD), but it comes with the 3DS, a copy of Snake Eater 3D and a couple of MGS-themed clear folders.

One of New Love Plus‘ new features is the “Anywhere Date Editor,” which allows the game’s ladies to interact with real world objects captured with the 3DS cameras.
Konami has a couple of images of the editor on the game’s official site. It looks like players will be able to mark specific objects so the girls know what they can hide behind, sit on or lean against.
It’s a neat feature, but it would be more impressive if the game could auto-detect objects instead of making players fiddle around with an editor.No comments
Despite Konami’s decision to dissolve Hudson, it appears that the house of Bomberman may live on in name.
“We will continue to work to deliver new entertainment to our fans, now as a member of Konami Group.”
The message goes on to say that development on products and services with the Hudson name will continue. In addition, Hudson’s official website will stay open.
A report submitted to the Kanto Local Finance Bureau today revealed that Konami plans to dissolve Hudson on March 1, 2012.
Hudson, which was acquired by Konami early last year, is best known for creating the Bomberman and Adventure Island games. Though, some Nintendo fans may recognize them for their work on Mario Party 1 through 8.
It’s unclear as to what will happen to Hudson’s IPs.No comments
