Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsA few game announcements (and one that is rumored), some interesting industry tidbits, and the King of Pop round up today's headlines. Check 'em out below! Yes, Michael Jackson DID work on Sonic the Hedgehog 3's soundtrack Sega-philes have known for a while about the rumor that Michael Jackson had contributed in some form to the soundtrack, but recently we've received possibly the closest confirmation we may ever get to an official acknowledgement from Huffington Post's Todd van Luling in a new article that sheds light on the long-speculated matter. Of course, SEGA won't spill the beans, and some of that could be for legal reasons, but in an interview with the game's composers, they all confirm that Jackson did have a hand in composing some, if not all, of the game's tracks. Reportedly, one of them even signed on to the job because he was told he would be working with Jackson. In the end, two things seem to have contributed to Jackson's name being pulled from the credits. One was the 1994 scandal in which he was accused of molesting a boy (in which case SEGA would want to distance themselves from the accusations). The other is that Jackson apparently was disappointed with the way the final soundtrack sounded, with the Genesis not being powerful enough to simulate the music and instead being reduced to "bleeps and bloops." Regardless, it's a fascinating read. If you want to read more, check out the source link below. Original Source: Huffington Post (now seen on GeekWrapped) Mighty No. 9 is delayed for a third time No, unfortunately this isn't a joke. Mighty No. 9 has officially been delayed yet again, as mentioned in a note to backers of the Kickstarter today. The game's creator Keiji Inafune mentions that the delay is due to issues with the multiplayer mode -- something that was added as a stretch goal when the Kickstarter campaign was going on. Inafune has expressed his apologies over the delay, mentioning that there's 'no excuse' for disappointing fans and backers once more. Unfortunately, there is no new release date, though Inafune says he expects it to be in Spring 2016. Source: Engadget Rumor: Paper Mario Wii U will be announced this year Could it be? Even after making his appearance in the recently released Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, Paper Mario might be getting his own standalone Wii U release courtesy of Intelligent Systems. We totally called this last year, by the way. According to industry pundit Emily Rogers (who has leaked game announcements successfully before), both have confirmed with five separate industry sources close to the matter that a Paper Mario game for Wii U is indeed in the works and will be announced at some point this year (probably E3). Whether or not the game is an RPG like the first two games in the series is unknown at this point, but hey, one can always hope. The latter two games have strayed a bit from the original formula, with 2007's Super Paper Mario opting to be a bit more of a platformer, and 2012's Paper Mario: Sticker Star was more of... well, its own thing, I guess (we reviewed that one here). Nintendo has not confirmed this leak, so it remains a rumor for now, but the info does line up with reports from last Summer about how Intelligent Systems put out a job listing with Paper Mario on Wii U being listed, so make of that what you will. If true, this will be the first Paper Mario on a console in 9 years. Source: Emily Rogers (via Twitter) SEGA 3D Classics Collection is coming to 3DS Last Thursday, SEGA gave us a little taste of something they're bringing to 3DS soon -- SEGA 3D Classics Collection! While SEGA has bundled their classic games in collections previously, this collection specifically houses their classic titles that have been ported by M2 to 3DS with 3D functionality added (and sometimes additional options). Here's a list of the games that will be available in the collection: Power Drift Puyo Puyo 2 Maze Walker Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa Fantasy Zone II W Sonic the Hedgehog Thunder Blade Galaxy Force 2 Altered Beast Since the collection is missing some of the more recent 3D classics that SEGA has recently put out (3D Gunstar Heroes, 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2, etc.), it seems likely that there will be a Volume 2 at some point as well. SEGA 3D Classics Collection will be available for $29.99 on April 26.

The game originally released last year on Steam, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita, and features a muscle-bound fish defending the seven seas in a randomized shoot-em-up campaign. Also, isn't that promo image amazing? Source: Choice Provisions Ubisoft dev speaks on why he went indie Ever wonder what drives developers at AAA companies to go indie? You probably already know, but a Ubisoft dev recently wrote at length about his experience at the company and why he chose to go it on his own. He has some pretty interesting things to say about working on games such as Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, the Wii U version of Assassin's Creed 3, and even his own internal game pitches that eventually were shot down and cancelled. Check out the full post at the source link below. Source: gingearstudio.com Are you disappointed in Mighty No. 9's delay? And what are your thoughts on 3D SEGA Classics Collection as well as the new info about Michael Jackson composing Sonic the Hedgehog 3's soundtrack?
GP Daily 2/4/16: Mirror's Edge: Catalyst gets a new trailer, Undertale might be Nintendo-bound, and more
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsIn today's GP Daily, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst leaps back into the headlines, Undertale may be coming to other platforms, and we've got word of a few other nifty games coming out soon. Check out the headlines below. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst gets a new story trailer And holy cow, does it look good. Not that that's too surprising; after all, DICE also released what is possibly the best looking game (in terms of graphical fidelity) of 2015: Star Wars Battlefront. The newest trailer offers a glimpse of what you can expect from the story, and it's looking to be a pretty cinematic adventure. Check it out above. Undertale might be getting a port to Nintendo platforms Despite Undertale's extreme popularity these days, it's still only available on PC, surprisingly enough. However, one platform it could be heading to in the future is one of Nintendo's. Word first got out when some people on Twitter noticed that a Nintendo representative reached out to speak with the game's creator, Toby Fox, but today the latter confirmed that he is interested in getting the game on Nintendo's platforms while simultaneously saying that the whole ordeal is not an announcement and that he isn't promising anything yet. One issue Fox brought up is that the game was made using Game Maker, but that particular program does not export directly to Wii U, so the port would have to built from the ground up. Fortunately, there appears to be at least one studio that is interested in helping in this case, and that's Broken Rules -- the developer behind And Yet It Moves and Chasing Aurora. The studio is no stranger to porting games to Wii U, as they've previously ported Guacamelee, Blek, and Electronic Super Joy to the platform in the past. In any case, we'll have to wait and see what happens. It's pretty interesting to see Nintendo reach out to initiate conversation on this, so perhaps Undertale may be in Nintendo fans' future at some point. Source: GoNintendo Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale dated for release in March If you've never heard of PopoloCrois before, you're not alone. It's a bit better known in Japan where it existed as a series of RPGs on PlayStation and PlayStation 2, before finally culminating in a PSP game that released over here as well. In any case, the series is getting a crossover with Story of Seasons (the series formerly known as Harvest Moon and better known as BokujÅ Monogatari in Japan) and it's coming pretty soon. RtP:ASoSF will feature classic RPG elements blended with life simulation elements, and will also feature a Japanese voice track in addition to the English voiceacting. Also, the game reportedly has a 25+ hour story, nearly 100 sidequests, and over 600 items, and also features activities like crop-raising, bug-catching, rock-quarring, item-synthesis, and forming relationships with others. Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale will be available on 3DS in North America via digital and retail on March 1.

The game was developed by Tribute Games and is an enhanced port of a free Flash game that they debuted in 2010. Ninja Senki DX is coming to both PlayStation 4 and Vita, as well as PC (via Humble Store) on February 23. The best part? It'll only cost you a cool $5.
