The World Ends With You — previously known as It’s a Wonderful World — coming April 22 to North America

By Phil | February 15, 2008 at 3:11 am

Square Enix’s DS RPG It’s a Wonderful World will be released in North America on April 22 as The World Ends With You.

The game is a quirky RPG set in modern-day Tokyo. The game features art from a team led by the infamous Tetsuya Nomura of Kingdom Hearts fame and, consequently, stars an emo 15-year-old boy whose hair defies the laws of physics.

Mass Effect downloadable content announced

By Phil | February 6, 2008 at 4:05 pm

On March 10 at 10am, owners of Bioware’s Xbox 360 RPG Mass Effect will be able to download “Bring Down the Sky”–the game’s first downloadable content pack–for 400 MS points. The pack is the first in a series of planned downloadable content.

Containing “approximately” 90 minutes of action and a new Achievement worth 50 Gamerscore points, Bring Down The Sky features a new uncharted world that introduces a new alien race called the Batarians; an extremist group that has hijacked an asteroid station in the Asgard system, setting it on a collision course with the colony world of Terra Nova. Possibly some of that “virtual orgasmic rape” I’ve heard so much about too. We’ll have to wait and see for that last one.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World announced for North America

By Phil | February 6, 2008 at 3:45 pm

When last month’s issue of Nintendo Power promised that an RPG “so fantastic, so engrossing, so epic, and so hush-hush that we’d have to erase your memories if we told you what it is” would debut in the next issue, it led to a lot of wild speculation. “Chrono Trigger 3!” “Mother 4!” people predicted, as if they live in a fantastical fairy land where wood nymphs prance through the countryside and distribute dollops of ice cream every morning.

Predictibly, the announcement in question was a lot less “fantastic.” According to this bloke at the GameTrailers forums Tales of Symphonia: Knights of Ratatosk, renamed to Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, will be making the trip over to North America. Considering the success of the original Tales of Symphonia on the GameCube, this comes as no surprise.

It’s not currently known whether Nintendo will fund the localization of the game like it did for the original Tales of Symphonia, or if Namco Bandai will bust out the ol’ tin can microphones again for the localization process. It has, however, been confirmed that there are now way too many games that have “the new world” somewhere in their subtitles.
