Microsoft has accidentally put up the product page for the next Just Dance game on the Xbox Live marketplace ahead of the game’s reveal later today. The latest opus of the Just Dance franchise will make you dance even more and will be once again the ultimate casual rendezvous of the year. This new opus will be even more social as you will be able to connect and dance with players from all over the world and share a unique dancing experience with them. It becomes the party expert and features today iconic pop culture references. New modes will be available, letting you and your friends experience parties the way only Just Dance knows how.
I was sent the above image yesterday and automatically assumed it was fake, however you will notice that Halo Spartan Assault is listed which was confirmed today by Microsoft as being in development for Windows Phone and Windows 8. Microsoft has previously said that Rare is working on a historic franchise for Xbox One, so Banjo Kazooie makes a lot of sense. Consider this a rumour for now, but we should know more on June 10th.
A hidden page on Ubisoft’s official Assassin’s Creed site states that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will launch on October 29th for Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 3, and PC, as well as next generation consoles. The site’s countdown is due to go live on Monday and will include an official trailer for the game. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is currently under embargo until 5pm Monday.
The 2013 software lineup for the Nintendo 3DS was apparently leaked at a Paper Mario: Sticker Star press event, which took place in Spain. There aren’t any unannounced games on the list, but there’s a fair few that need to be localised. These include Time Travellers and Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright, amongst others. What do you think of the list?
Nintendo Europe has apparently uploaded three Gameboy Advance games onto their press server. The games which have been uploaded are Super Mario Ball, Mario Golf: Advance Tour, and Mario & Luigi: Super Star Saga. These box-arts could have been mistakenly put up early in preparation for the European Nintendo Direct presentation which is taking place on Thursday. We shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out.
Several never before seen New Super Mario Bros. U screenshots have been leaked from Game Informer’s latest issue that covers Wii U games. The images confirm that baddies from previous Super Mario games, including Monty Moles, Piranha Plants and Cheep Cheeps, will return in Mario’s first Wii U title. New Super Mario Bros. U is expected to launch this holiday.
Peripheral manufacturer PDP allegedly revealed its plans on releasing Wii U accessories on Nintendo’s upcoming console’s launch date, which is supposedly November 18th. PDP is claiming, however, that it wasn’t referring to the Wii U console when it was discussing release dates; instead, the manufacturer says it was talking about accessories for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, which is scheduled to launch on November 18th for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
“During PDP’s presentation of our fall line of gaming accessories to customers at a trade event, we stated that our Wii U accessories would be available at launch. Much later in the presentation we showed our Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2 accessories for the Wii and confirmed that the Wii accessories will be in stores by the game’s November 18 launch date. Connecting the Wii U launch and Epic Mickey 2 peripheral launch dates is inaccurate and false. PDP has no knowledge whether this is the official Wii U release date or not.”
Maximum Games recently announced that Jet Tailfin will be released on the Wii U. The company apparently leaked the Wii U retail games’ box art design on their website. It looks almost identical to the box art of Wii games – the only difference is the extra blue letter for Wii U. Nintendo hasn’t revealed the box art designs for Wii U games themselves, so perhaps Maximum Games is just showing which platforms the title will be released on.
A NeoGAF member is claiming that he has information about a Wii U version of Diablo III from “someone who seems trustworthy.” The anonymous source claims that Blizzard, the company behind Diablo III, has a couple of games that are not yet publicly shared. The source is certain that at least one of the games is Diablo III for Wii U.
The source also claims that this year’s Blizzcon was cancelled so that the company can focus on the console versions of Diablo III. The game is currently on the PC and its director has shown interest in the past about whether he wants to develop a console version.
