Shuuhou Imai Will Reveal New Nintendo 3DS Game This Week

Shuuhou Imai, the Tokyo Majin Gakuen series and Mato Kurenai Yuugekitai director, has announced that he plans to reveal his new Nintendo 3DS game this week. Imai both wrote and directed the new announced title. Here’s what he had to say on his blog.

“Even though we finished working on Yuugekitai, what with making Yugekiwalker and following the progress of other projects, it’s like there’s no time to relax,” Shuuhou said. “Rather than thinking about being able to take any holidays during Obon, I was worried about launching it in time. Also, this week I’ll be able to release information about the new 3DS game that I wrote about previously, the one I wrote and directed.”

Nintendo DSi Ware Developer Defends Wii U

Hugo Smits, a game developer from Goodbyegalaxygames, has written a blog post titled “Shut up! Nothing is wrong with Nintendo Wii U!” which attempts to defend the Wii U. Smits says the real problem with Nintendo is communication with consumers and developers coupled with Nintendo’s own services. Smits doesn’t think the Wii U is a bad console, but thinks it was just marketed poorly. He goes on to say that the same thing happened with Nintendo 3DS as consumers thought it was just a revised Nintendo DS after all the iterations of the Nintendo DS systems.
