GP Headlines 3/30/16: Marin coming to Hyrule Warriors Legends, PS Plus April Titles Revealed, and more
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsToday's headlines bring a mix of good news, bad news, and... interesting news, to say the least. If you're into either Hyrule Warriors or Street Fighter V, there are some new announcements regarding each, and Sony has finally announced the PlayStation Plus free titles for April. Read on to see the rest of the headlines below! Link's Awakening's Marin will be the next DLC character coming to Hyrule Warriors Legends With Hyrule Warriors Legends, it seems Omega Force is really trying to pull characters from just about every Zelda title out there (well, ), and this rings especially true with the next playable DLC character that's on the way: Marin (from Link's Awakening). She'll be part of the second DLC pack coming this Summer, which also will include a new weapon for Linkle, 16 more My Fairy costume pieces, a new adventure mode map, and two new adventure mode scenarios. The final two DLC packs are said to be based on Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, respectively, but it'll likely be a little longer before we find out which characters will be in each of them.

Well, for one character at least. Alex (from Street Fighter III) is officially the first DLC character to make his way onto the Street Fighter V roster. You'll be able to use Fight Money (money earned in-game) in order to purchase or him; otherwise you'll need to use real money on a season pass in order to play as the grappler. And if you don't have the money? No problem - Capcom is allowing players to take him for a test run during a limited trial period, so get to it! Source: Destructoid n-Space shuts down More unfortunate news about studios closures today as it was revealed that n-Space, the developer behind games such as Nintendo's Geist and Square Enix's Heroes of Ruin -- has officially shut down. The news was announced by former n-Space artist Ben Leary. Sword Coast Legends was the studio's final game, though it looks like it wasn't enough to keep the studio going, which had been around for some 21 years before its closure. Source: Nintendo World Report David Hayter's got 'no love' for Kojima In some more surprising news, David Hayter -- the original voice of Metal Gear Solid's Snake -- revealed on a recent episode of The Game Informer Show podcast that he isn't crazy about series creator Hideo Kojima, despite having worked with him on all but one of the games. It turns out that Kojima had wanted to replace him early on with Kurt Russell, but the Hollywood star turned down the role when he was offered the part of Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid 3. In turn, Hayter was forced to re-audition for the role (which he ultimately won back again). However, he was left out in the cold when it came to Metal Gear Solid V, and found out that he had been replaced only when he ran into a producer on the game at a recording studio. Needless to say, this didn't sit well with Hayter, who wasn't even formally contacted about it, prompting him to admit on the podcast that he's got "no particular love for Kojima" and that he probably would never work with him again. Yikes. If you'd like to listen to the whole podcast, you can check it out at the source link below. Source: Game Informer (via PlayStation Universe) PlayStation Plus April 2016 lineup revealed Not a day too soon, Sony has finally revealed what PlayStation Plus free titles we can expect to see in April. Dead Star and Zombi appear to headline the bunch, with the usual indies and one other AAA title from last-gen. Here's the full list: PS4 Dead Star Zombi PS3 I Am Alive Savage Moon PS Vita A Virus Named Tom Shutsumi What are your thoughts on Marin joining Hyrule Warriors and Alex being a DLC character for Street Fighter V? Are you surprised that David Hayter holds no love for Kojima? And what do you think of the PS Plus lineup for April? Let us know in the comments!
Jason Clement posted a article in NintendoToday's Nintendo Direct brought quite a bit of new information our way. While no information was given about NX, Nintendo had plenty to spill on new games coming to both Wii U and 3DS, including announcements on some brand new titles. Check out the headlines below: Project Guard becomes Star Fox Guard; will be bundled with Star Fox Zero Remember Project Guard? It was a quirky concept that Shigeru Miyamoto introduced an E3 or two back that utilized the Wii U gamepad as a sort of security monitor that would have the player tracking different cameras around a complex of sorts while making sure enemy units didn't get past them. Anyhow, that concept has finally been realized as a real game that is now called Star Fox Guard in which players will set up 12 cameras to find and defeat enemies who are plaguing the mining site of Slippy's uncle, Grippy (yes, really). The game will offer 100 levels and the ability to create and share your own online, and will be included with the physical retail release of Star Fox Zero, all for $59.99 on April 22. You'll also be able to buy it standalone on the eShop for $15. Paper Mario: Color Splash announced for Wii U Hey, we predicted this last year (better late than never, right?)! Anyhow, after rumors abounded recently, it was confirmed today that a new Paper Mario game is indeed in the works for Wii U, and it's called Paper Mario: Color Splash. The game takes place on Prism Island, where the island itself has been drained of color, so it's up to Paper Mario to restore its color with his hammer. Apparently there is a battle mode, but not much has been shown of it just yet. However, the game is being referred to as an action adventure game, so this may be more of an extension of Paper Mario: Sticker Star than it is of the early RPG games in the series. Stay tuned for more information at a later date. New Super Mario Maker DLC adding keys, skewers, and more Super Mario Maker is the gift that keeps on giving as the Direct revealed that new DLC is coming that will allow you to shake a Thwomp in order to turn into a giant skewer (like the ones in Super Mario World). Also, keys are finally being added, meaning you'll need to find them to unlock certain doors in levels. Finally, a Super Expert mode will add six additional levels to play through, and 12 more Mystery Mushroom costumes are also on the way. Atlus' Fire Emblem spin-off finally has a name ...and it's called Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (the last part is pronounced "sharp eff-ee"). I... still kinda don't get what this one is about, but apparently J-pop and fashion figure greatly into it, and it's still an RPG at its heart. In any case, expect to hear more about it soon as it's releasing on Wii U on June 24. Bandai Namco's Lost Reavers coming in April We first heard about Lost Reavers when it was announced as a free-to-play joint called Project Treasure last year. Now it's finally coming to Wii U on April 28, with a beta starting on April 14. It plays as a co-op action game where you'll team with other players online to fight zombies, solve puzzles, and find treasure. There's also a skill-based system and level progression for your characters, so if that appeals to you, keep an eye out when it launches in late April. Kirby returns to 3DS with Kirby: Planet Robobot and a new amiibo line Yep, a new Kirby game is upon us. This time Kirby will put on mech suits to dish out punishment against invaders that have mechanized Dream Land. Additionally, while piloting the mech, it will absorb any abilities that Kirby sucks up from enemies. Neat! The game will also contain a mode called Team Kirby Clash that allows up to four players with four different roles to team up against bosses and earn experience points that they can use to level up. Finally, a new Kirby amiibo line is coming! The new amiibo line features a Kirby variant with him riding a star, a Meta Knight variant, a Dedede variant, and an amiibo debut for Waddle Dee. Both Kirby: Planet Robobot and the four new amiibo figures will be releasing on June 10. Metroid Prime Federation Force coming this Spring Yup, it's still alive. After a less than welcoming reception from fans when it was announced at E3 last year, Nintendo confirmed that Metroid Prime: Federation Force is alive and well. A new trailer was showcased for the game, in addition to being confirmed for a late Spring release. Rhythm Heaven Megamix bringing the series' biggest hits to 3DS We knew it was coming sooner or later since it launched in Japan last year, but now it's official -- Rhythm Heaven Megamix is coming stateside and will offer 30 new rhythm games as well as 70 ones handpicked from previous entries in the series -- including the never-before-released-in-US GBA game. Rhythm Heaven Megamix is coming to 3DS later this year. Capcom localizing Monter Hunter X as Monster Hunter Generations in North America Another game we knew was coming sooner or later. Monster Hunter Generations is the follow-up to last year's Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and will feature crossover Fire Emblem costumes and bonus content if you have Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate save data present on the 3DS you play the game on. Monster Hunter Generations launches later this Summer. Medli and a season pass heading to Hyrule Warriors Legends On March 25, players will get to delve back into Hyrule Warriors Legends with brand new characters. One of those new characters was revealed to be Medli, who will be available as free DLC. Also, a transfer code will be made available to those who buy the game that will allow them to download the five new characters to the Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors. Additionally, players can buy a Season Pass for four upcoming DLC packs for the game; the first of which will include a new costume for Ganondorf. SNES Virtual Console games coming to New 3DS For the longest time, Nintendo fans have wanted Super NES Virtual Console games on 3DS, and now it's going to happen, albeit on New Nintendo 3DS exclusively. Super Mario World, F-Zero, and Pilotwings are currently available to buy on the New 3DS eShop right now. Then on March 24, Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario Kart and EarthBound will join the lineup, with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy“s Quest coming on April 14. The New Nintendo 3DS will enable a "Perfect Pixel" version of these games, enabling them to play in their native resolution, looking better than ever. Best of the rest Splatoon is getting some updates that will add some fixes and balances to weapons and matchmaking. Disney Art Academy is coming to 3DS on May 13. It is exactly what it sounds like. Bravely Second: End Layer is coming to 3DS on April 15. Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked members will receive a special 16 digit code to access the demo early on March 7. It will then go public on March 10 and allow players to transfer bonuses into the full game when they buy it. Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past was given a new trailer but no specific release date just yet. It's still planned for Summer 2016. Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations is launching digitally for $19.99 on March 10 for those who don't have the Special Edition. Two new maps are being released for purchases today at the Dragon's Gate, and Royal Royale will be coming on March 17, with new maps coming every week thereafter until April 21. Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is coming to 3DS this Summer and includes Gunvolt's rival Copen as a playable character. As a promotion, the original Azure Striker Gunvolt is on sale for $9.99 on the 3DS eShop until June 1. Pocket Card Journey is a new game coming to 3DS courtesy of Game Freak, which meshes Solitaire with horse racing. It launches in May. Mini Mario and Friends amiibo Challenge is a free game coming to 3DS and Wii U that will let you use amiibo to play as 1 of 11 characters with their own specifically designed levels to play through. You'll be able to play the game through a download code provided with the purchase of an amiibo on March 25, or you can download it for free on the eShop starting April 28. Isabelle amiibo figure will be available for purchase separately on June 10, along with an alternate figure featuring her Summer outfit on the same day. Series 4 of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards will be available for purchase on June 10. Which announcements are you most excited about?
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsIn today's news, more NX rumors surface, SEGA teases Sonic news soon, we get some more information on Dragon Quest VII, and more! Read on below for the full scoops. New NX Rumors Surface Still no official word on what Nintendo's next platform codenamed 'NX' will be, but new rumors are circulating about the console's technical specs. A survey from GFK (a client of Nintendo) which was leaked from Liam Robertson (who has ties to Unseen64, a site about unreleased and cancelled video games) seems to add further fuel to the fire about connectivity between a handheld and console unit. Furthermore, it makes mention that video calls will be able to be made through your TV through the NX and it will support 4K/60fps video streaming and gameplay graphics at 900p/60fps. Finally, a sensor bar is also reportedly supposed to be bundled with the system; an interesting tidbit for sure, if true. As usual, take this all with a grain of salt until we get actual confirmation from Nintendo, which will hopefully come sometime before E3 (if not at the trade show itself). Source: Nintendo Inquirer SEGA teases Sonic news in February If you're a Sonic fan, good news -- you might be hearing more Sonic game news very soon. Apparently SEGA's teased an announcement of... some announcements to come in February on their Tumblr page. Might they reveal a new Sonic game or two? It's possible considering that this year is the 25th anniversary. Stay tuned... Source: Sonicthehedgehog.tumblr.com New Info on Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past Many fans have long been awaiting Dragon Quest VII remake here in the US, and yesterday brought a slew of new info on the localization. Namely, Dragon Quest VII is basically a brand new game with all new writing and no random encounters (you'll see the enemies on the map). Also being implemented are a story summary feature and Streetpass feature that will net you tablets. Keep an eye out for more Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past news leading up to its release later this Summer. Source: Siliconera https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuzx7OKR40Y&feature=youtu.be&t=6m10s Aryll speaks for Toon Link in Hyrule Warriors Legends Hyrule Warriors Legends on 3DS is slated to include a few new characters that weren't present in the Wii U version of the game. Chief among them is Toon Link, and recent information has revealed an interesting tidbit about him. Other incarnations of Link usually have a fairy speaking in behalf of him throughout the game but Toon Link will have none other than his kid sister Aryll speaking on his behalf, which should be a nice change. She'll be speaking to him through the power of the Pirate's Charm, the same item that Tetra and The King of Red Lions used to communicate with Link in The Wind Waker. You can hear her talking at the 6:10 point in the video above! Of course, you'll also be able to hear her for yourself when the game launches on March 25 in North America. Source: Zelda Informer Twilight Princess HD amiibo functionality detailed Wondering what the Wolf Link amiibo will do when used with the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD? Well, we finally have an answer. According to this week's Famitsu magazine, using the amiibo at a certain location will allow the player to experience "Thorough Battle: Trial of the Beast." Clearing it will net you a "Bottomless Wallet," which can carry up to 9,999 rupees (the max amount, safe to say). Also, the amiibo will allow you to import data from Twilight Princess HD into the upcoming Legend of Zelda Wii U game. What the data is is currently unknown still; expect to hear more leading up to the game's release. Finally, other Zelda-related amiibo will be able to be used once a day for different effects, such as replenishing arrows, hearts, and even making enemies dish out twice as much damage (thanks, Ganondorf... I guess). Source: Nintendo Everything Knuckle Sandwich is a visually stunning, upcoming Earthbound-inspired indie RPG Who doesn't love Earthbound (am I right)? 2015 saw a slew of indie games inspired by it, such as Citizens of Earth and the ever-popular Undertale (which I hear may have won our Game of the Year 2015 honor). Anyhoo, an upcoming indie RPG from Andrew Brophy called Knuckle Sandwich looks to be inspired by the SNES classic as well. The game stars a boy who's living on his own for the first time, and gets caught up in a mystery where people are disappearing from town. No release date has been detailed just yet, but Knuckle Sandwich will be coming to PC at some point. Be sure to check out the game's trailer above. Source: Polygon What news stood out to you today? Do you think the new NX rumors have any merit? And will SEGA announce something exciting for Sonic?
