Rumour: Mighty No.9 Physical Release Delayed?

A number of high-profile retailers are listing the physical version of Mighty No.9 with a 2016 release date. This includes retailers such as Amazon and GameStop. Whether this is just for the physical release remains to be seen, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the game itself has been delayed for added polish. Let’s just hope it turns out to be a small delay for the physical release.

3D Streets Of Rage 2 For Nintendo 3DS Delayed To July 23

According to SEGA’s official Twitter account, 3D Streets of Rage 2 has been delayed a week — from July 16 to July 23. This is a global delay, so no hopes on grabbing it earlier in certain regions.

Streets of Rage 2 is widely held to be one of the best side-scrolling, beat em’ up games of its time. The sequel to the first Streets of Rage originally launched December 20, 1992 in the United States for the Mega Drive / Genesis consoles. Since then, the game has been released in arcades, SEGA Game Gear, SEGA Master System, Wii Virtual Console, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, iOS, and PC.

Project X Zone 2 Has Been Delayed To Early 2016 In Europe, But Here’s A 7 Minute Trailer

The long-awaited sequel to Project X Zone has sadly been delayed until early 2016 in Europe. I’m not entirely sure what this means for those of you in the United States as the game might be delayed there too. I will update the post once I hear something. With the bad news out-of-the-way, Bandai Namco has released a brand new action-packed trailer for Project X Zone 2 which you can watch, below.

Rumor: Terraria Has Been Cancelled Or Delayed For Nintendo 3DS In The US

It has been no surprise that the Minecraft-esque, indie title Terraria would be heading to Nintendo platforms — in fact, it was confirmed by the developers themselves. However, for those who follow the recent listings of the ESRB (i.e., only gaming journalism blogs), you may have noticed that the new rating Terraria is lacking one thing: the Nintendo 3DS version. In the ESRB rating (seen below), there is only mention of a Wii U and Vita (retail) version:

This is by no means the end of days — there was never an official release date, so this may have been the plan all along (if it is simply a tiered launch timeline). Either way, which system do you hope to pick Terraria up on?

Zelda Wii U Won’t Be At This Year’s E3

We’ve already heard that The Legend of Zelda Wii U most likely won’t be coming out this year. Now we’ve heard that the game won’t be shown at this year’s E3, which is a rather surprising development. The news was posted by The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma on Miiverse. Let’s hope it’s still coming to the Wii U and not being developed for Nintendo’s next console, the NX.

As I said in the video, we would like to take this time so we can bring you a very special experience, by making the ultimate Zelda game. Since we’d like to focus on developing the game we’ve decided to not show the game at this year’s E3. Thank you for your continued support, and I hope you’ll look forward to the game!

Thanks, WhiteEagle

Zelda Wii U Will No Longer Be Released This Year

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has announced in a video that The Legend of Zelda Wii U will no longer be released this year as the company had previously stated. Presumably the long-awaited game will come out some time in 2016. Aonuma says that with such an expansive universe comes new ideas so they’ve decided to push it back Let’s hope it’s still on track for Wii U.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
