Nintendo opens Teaser sites for Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Metroid Other M

Today Nintendo opened 3 teaser websites for the games Xenoblade, The Last Story, and METROID Other M.

Xenoblade is the new name for the Monolithsoft RPG that Nintendo revealed at E3 last year originally called Monado: Beginning of the World.

The Last Story is an RPG for the Wii that Mistwalker (the developers behind the Japan-only A.S.H.) has been working on for a while now. A trademark for the game was filed a few months ago.

METROID Other M according to Nintendo is set to release this Summer in Japan. There is still no North American, European, or Australian release set, but are due for this year.
Nintendo's 1st party lineup was revealed, and you can see it here.

Last Window: Midnight Promise & Zangeki no Reginleiv have not appeared on the release list outside of Japan, as well as Chibi Robo 2 for the DS. However, since it is only the beginning of the year this list will change throughout.

Hoshi no Kirby (Wii) and Famicom Wars DS 2 once again appear on the Japanese release list, but still the former has not been revealed. Famicom Wars DS 2 came to the US as Advance Wars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict(EUR). I think it's safe to say it isn't going to be released in Japan.

I got No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

One of the top contenders for Wii 3rd Party Game of the Year has just now been released on the Wii. The sequel to the hit No More Heroes is now on store shelves. Tatsunoko VS Capcom is out now too, and has new characters & online play! Be sure to pick that up as well. I'm gonna buy it this Saturday.

I got Sands of Destruction!

Well, I finally got Sands of Destruction in the mail from Amazon. It took a while because I chose free shipping, and I also got the game for $23.99 because I had a $10 off coupon ^_^

I took a picture of it with my iPhone 3GS:

This game is really cool, yall should definitely give it a try if you are into old-school style RPGs. I definitely haven't had much fun with an RPG other than Pokémon & Golden Sun in many many years. Definitely check this one out guys!

Tatsunoko VS Capcom Trading Cards

While I was reading my latest issue of Nintendo Power (Feb 2010), I ended up finding a cool lenticular trading card for Tatsunoko VS Capcom for the Wii. It turns out, if you preorder the game at GameStop they will give you a 8-card pack of the cards. Here is the Chun-Li/Jun the Swan card:

I already imported the original Tatsunoko VS Capcom game in December 2008 when it came out in Japan. The new game isn't simply a localization, but a brand new version of the original, that also includes online play and some new characters. Essentially it's like how Capcom released newer versions of Street Fighter games.

I really do wish I could get a pack of cards but the game isn't a priority to me right now as I want No More Heroes 2 and also got a speeding ticket.

You can see more pics of the cards at my friends site:

Just want to wish the 5 people who probably read my blog a Happy New Year 2010! Goodbye 2009, you really sucked for me!

Anyways, we celebrated our Christmas on the 31st. Here is what I got:

I took a bunch of pictures with the iPhone at the Sugarland Town Square event. They premiered some new 3D Projection Technology from The Netherlands there, it was really awesome. If you wanna see them I put just a few on my facebook page. :)
