BlazBlue Fighting Game Gets Anime Adaptation

It was announced on the wraparound sleeve of the latest and second volume of the BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger novels that an anime adaptation of the fighting game series has been green-lit.

Nintendo finally steps up to talk about WiiU

President Satoru Iwata is finally going reveal the launch details for the WiiU, tonight at midnight Pacific Time (3am in Japan). After keeping quiet for so long about the WiiU, including it’s capabilities, it’s not surprising that this announcement comes as a long awaited oasus in the desert of WiiU news. Iwata will be releasing the date of launch as well as the pricing information for the WiiU.

But the bonuses don’t stop there. As stated in the video below, a U.S. Wii U Preview event is also set to air tomorrow at 10 am Eastern Time. There is also a European Preview event scheduled for the same time (3pm Greenwich Mean Time). One would think after keeping it under wraps for so long, more information would be released on the WiiU, but a launch date and price is all Nintendo’s ready to give out just yet.

Ace Attorney 5 Sees Phoenix Wright Back Again

Phoenix Wright is back and he’s making his way to the 3DS.

A screenshot of the announcement in Famitsu

The latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed that the fifth Ace Attorney game – set to be released on 3DS – will see a return from the all-famous Attorney Phoenix Wright, after he took a short break from the courtroom to concede to newbie Apollo Justice.

Although there is no set release date for the new title as of yet, Phoenix Wright apparently also has a mysterious new female partner who serves as a “central figure in the game”.

The site Andriasang suggests that the in-game characters will be in full 3D, with the lower screen on the 3DS showing icons for facial expressions that your characters can use during testimony.

However the mere suggestion of ‘Phoenix Wright is Objecting once more’ – not to mention also having a crossover title on the 3DS with the infamous Professor Layton – will see fans bursting with anticipation over the lawyer with the gravity defying hair.

For more details, head over to Andriasang’s Article on Ace Attorney 5.
