Halfway through the year, and we've got a quiet month for the DS. Alright. You can read the Wii version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Super Mario Galaxy 2 was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Mega Man Zero Collection Developed by: Capcom Published by: Capcom Release date: June 8th (America), June 10th (Japan), June 11th (Europe) Genre: Action My Hype Level: I really don't care GBAtemp Hype Level: HOLY SHIT I LOVE MEGA MAN I never really cared for Mega Man after the whole 8-bit era and when they started making him all anime-ized and cartoon-ized or whatever you want to call it. But hey, he now has a larger fanbase than every before, so I guess that's nothing to complain about. Well, this is a compilation of all the Mega Man Zero games on the GBA, now on the DS. A lot of people want this one, but in all reality, I might as well just play the games on my 3-in-1 if I wanted to. Puzzle Quest 2 Developed by: Infinite Interactive Published by: D3 Publisher Release date: June 22nd (America) Genre: Puzzle RPG My Hype Level: DS game of the year, honestly GBAtemp Hype Level: They're not as big Puzzle Quest freaks as me. I will go on and on about how Puzzle Quest is one of the best games of the decade. I love it to death. It's addictive as hell, challenging, accessible, and combines genres perfectly with tons and tons of content. When they announced a true sequel to the original Puzzle Quest (not Galactrix, not Chronicles), I was super psyched. The only bummer is that it's NOT on the PSP, and I love the PSP version over the DS version. But hey, it's a great game regardless. Transformers: War for Cybertron Autobots/Decepticons Developed by: Vicarious Visions Published by: Activision Release date: June 22nd (America) Genre: Shooter My Hype Level: IDK, looks alright GBAtemp Hype Level: Zzz... It's the Autobots cover, deal with it. Anyway, War for Cybertron seems like a good enough concept. An original franchise game that uses the licenses pretty well. I mean, it turned out great for Arkham Asylum, so it could work here. Well, the DS versions had some decent enough screens but, as we all know, the DS/Wii get the short end of the stick on most multiplatform titles. It could be good or bad, who knows. Although Transformers games on the DS have been the exact definition of "incredibly average". Dragon Ball Origins 2 Developed by: Game Republic Published by: Namco Release date: June 22nd (America) Genre: Action Adventure My Hype Level: Meh, it's Legend of Zelda DS skinned with Dragon Ball... I'll pas GBAtemp Hype Level: KAMEHAMEHAAAAAAAA. This came out last month in Japan but it was, of course, in Japanese. This is the official localization. Anyway, Dragon Ball Origins is kinda like the Legend of Zelda DS titles except with Dragon Ball. If you know me, you'll know I'm not very fond of the Zelda DS titles, and that I'm not very fond of Dragon Ball. Putting both of them together basically means "I'll pass" or "I'll play it if I'm desperately bored". Lego Harry Potters: Years 1-4 Developed by: Traveller's Tales Published by: Warner Bros. Interactive Release date: June 29th (America) Genre: Action My Hype Level: Another LEGO reskin GBAtemp Hype Level: Meh. This game has already been delayed a bunch so it could get pushed back for all we know. Well, LEGO games aren't really that bad, the game is that they all seems the same: run around, beat up blocks, and do some puzzles/platforming. I mean, I enjoyed LEGO Indy quite a bit and Star Wars wasn't bad, but they all seem to just be reskins. Anyway, Harry Potter is the next franchise in the limelight, and it could be alright. But the DS also doesn't get the full-on console versions (unlike the PSP), so it could be packed poorly. Other titles - Legend of Kay: 6/7 (...provided it's not delayed again) (Europe) - Toy Story 3: 6/15 (America) - River City Soccer Hooligans: 6/18 (America) - Ghost Trick: 6/24 (Japan) - Love Plus + 6/24 (Japan) Overall Summary Pretty slow, but that's pretty much the DS for the rest of its lifespan. A few decent looking titles and maybe one big one. Puzzle Quest 2 has already given me an erection, and I'm sure the same goes for Mega Man fans with Mega Man Zero. Transformers could be a hit or miss, Dragon Ball is sure to please fans of the first game, and LEGO Harry Potter could just be more of the same. At least we get something to play. Next month is pretty nice. Dragon Quest IX finally hits America, the next Inazuma Eleven in the series comes to Japan (...but of course we don't get one over here), and Monster Rancher DS may finally see the light of day. There's also TrackMania Turbo for TrackMania enthusiasts. Have a nice June!
