Okay, so some of the higher ups wanted the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) to do a wrap-up for the Tokyo Game Show in this week’s Retro Wrap-Up. So I went onto YouTube to find something even remotely close to being retro. The best I could find was this fake-retro commercial for the Tokyo Game Show.
Here are some of the highlights from this past week.
Trailers, trailers, trailers! We got all kinds of trailers! We got trailers for Puppeteer, Dynsaty Warriors 7: Empires, Phantasy Star Online 2 Professor Layton, Ace Attorney 5, Atelier Totori, Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2, Fantasy Life, La-Mulana, Final Fantasy XIV, God Eater 2, Project X Zone, pick-up trucks, RVs, tractors, boats, jetplanes, and even for your tricycle!
We learned that the 3DSXL gets its own version of the “boat” (a second slider-stick add-on), PSVita will be released in new colors blue and red, and Sony revealed the PS3 ‘Super Slim,’ and also stated it will support its current console until 2015.
Will Whitehurst reviews Infinite Space for the DS in this week’s Games of the Past review.
Killer Instinct got its trademark renewed. Whether this means we’re getting a new installment in the franchise or not remains to be seen.
We take a look at two fan movements this week; Operation Zero for the Fatal Frame series and Project Crystallis for Final Fantasy Type-0 and Versus XIII.
Team Ninja and Keiji Inafune reveal Yaiba, a Ninja Gaiden spin-off with zombies. Can’t go wrong with that, right?
Finally, we ask ourselves if we’re ready for a new console generation. We also ask you, the readers, what you think.
