Nin3DSWii ULeave a comment


As you’ll probably recall from earlier this year, Capcom announced that their classic NES game ‘DuckTales’ would be receiving a HD remake with revised graphics and gameplay by Way Forward.  This news set most of the internet on fire for a good few days or so, and excited fans across the world. And now, they’ve gone and released some new screenshots of the game showing three levels in all their remade HD glory!  You’ve got the Amazon level, Transylvania and one more, and you can find pictures of all of them below: So as you can see, the game looks absolutely fantastic on Wii U and other modern systems.  Could this be the best remake of a classic NES game […]

Sega uploads mysterious trailer; Castle of Illusion remake confirmed?

Nin3DSWii U2 comments so far

Castle Of Illusion teaser

Let’s see… it starts with a view over an ominous castle, it cuts to some toy soldiers like those in the Toyland level and shows what appears to be Mizrabel (the original game’s finale boss) and ends with a mention of Disney and the game coming in Summer 2013. Seems like a fairly good hint that this is meant to be a teaser trailer for a Castle of Illusion remake. What do you think the mystery game shown in the trailer is?

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse Getting a Remake like Duck Tales?

That’s the rumour anyway, and it seems like the evidence is piling up.  First and foremost, here’s what we now do know; this game will be rereleased on at least the Xbox Live Arcade sometime in the future with Sega as the publisher and this as the ‘box’ art:   Yes, it’s been rated by the Brazilian rating board for the Xbox 360, Wii U, PS3 and Playstation Vita so far.  So with that box art and that near cast iron evidence of the game’s existance, it seems at minimum a Virtual Console style rerelease is right around the corner. But this aside, there’s some far more interesting rumours going around about this game too.  Namely that it’ll get a […]

Okay. I am not kidding here.  They have quite literally announced a new Duck Tales game for the Wii U (and PS3, Xbox 360 and other systems).  It’ll be available on the eShop, and here’s the first trailer for it: So what is this game?  It’s a reboot of the classic Duck Tales series Capcom worked on back in the days of the NES, except now with beautiful HD graphics and all the trimmings of more modern games and platformers!  So in other words, a remake of the original with remixed music, redone graphics, new levels and missions and stuff in addition to the old ones and god knows what else!  Here’s the official press release for it: BOSTON – […]

Castle of Illusion

Long, long before Epic Mickey was ever a thing, when licensed Disney video games were actually seen as good and when 2D platformers on the SNES and Genesis were a major thing, there was this rather well known Mickey Mouse game called Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse.  It was a fantastic 2D platformer that ended up getting multiple sequels, and one that’s forever been held in licensing limbo due to Sega not having any control over the Mickey Mouse license any more. But could this finally be about to change?  Could Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse really be about to be rereleased for the Wii U, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Playstation Vita?  Perhaps so, and I have […]

Epic Mickey 2 3DS

Well everyone, looks like the rumour that sprung up yesterday has turned out to be real, since Disney has officially announced that Junction Point has been shut down for good.  Here’s their original comments: It was with much sadness that we informed our teams today of changes to our Games organization, which include the closure of Junction Point Studios. These changes are part of our ongoing effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace and to align resources against our key priorities. We’re extremely grateful to Warren Spector and the Junction Point team for their creative contributions to Disney with Disney Epic Mickey and Disney Epic Mickey 2. Yeah, as people have predicted, Disney want to save resources for […]

Well, that’s what the latest rumours are saying, and I’d go as far as to say they might be plausible.  The first piece of potential evidence is a Twitter post by Roberts Space Industries, who have gone and talked about a ‘salute for a studio’ and said ‘farewell to Junction Point’.  Here’s the Tweet in question: Second 21 gun salute for a studio in 7 days.Fare-the-well Junction Point!We hope that you all find new studios soon! — RSI (@RobertsSpaceInd) January 28, 2013 To add fuel to the fire, George Broussard from 3D Realms then added that: The Junction Point rumors have been circulating a while. Warning signs when you give employees 2 months off after shipping. — George Broussard (@georgeb3dr) […]

Disney; No More Ties in due to Disney Infinity

Disney Infinity

Say what you like about the price of the figures, Disney Infinity is an interesting concept on it’s own.  But to make it even better, Disney have actually announced they won’t be making more tie in games while Disney Infinity is being updated by extra figures, playsets and ‘downloadable’ (uploadable?) content.  Here’s what they have to say on the matter: In the past, we used to do a game based on Tangled, and a game based on Tron, and a game based on Epic Mickey, and every single time whether it was an internal developer or external developer, we were starting from scratch. That team, starting with the film-makers and establishing the relationship, that always takes a very long time, […]

Disney Smash Bros; A Decent Scrapped Idea?

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News, Nintendo ArticlesLeave a comment

Disney Smash Bros 1

Finding characters for a viable mascot fighter game like Super Smash Bros can be a challenge, Sony’s lack of suitable ones led to the disappointing roster in Playstation All Stars and the lack of other companies with their own characters tends to be why so few such games even exist. But Disney making their own Super Smash Bros like fighting game with figures of their famous characters? That actually sounds like a decent idea. This isn’t idle speculation either.  Documents and concept art have been leaked showing a Disney crossover fighting game that was once in production at Buena Vista Games.  Here’s the concept art:       And really, it seems like a great idea for a new game.

Warren Spector hopes for more Epic Mickey games

As you can see in this recent quote by him about the series and the potential it has: I’d love to see the Disney Epic Mickey series continue – there are plenty of stories still to tell about Wasteland and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse! I’d love to see some Oswald games, where he’s on his own. He deserves a shot at solo stardom. Then there are the ‘duck’ games – Donald, Scrooge, etc – that are just waiting to be made. And a bunch of us at Junction Point have thoughts about Goofy and the Gremlins and a hundred others. He’s right, there are plenty of stories still to be told about Wasteland and Oswald the Lucky […]
