Sweet looks like Bangai-O Spirits will make it out of Japan after all. I still can't believe that Prey The Stars is down for Q2, I think I featured that in my first "DS games next week" thread back in April, its out in Europe next week though.

Was hoping to maybe see a few unannounced games there though.

Why isn't Dungeon Explorer in there? It's release is supposed to be what? feb 4?
US 12th Feb, Europe 28th March.

According to the statement issued with it, it was only a "partial" release list so obviously some games will be missing and some dates will be wrong/changed quickly etc.

There's a decent amount of those games that look good, and a few I never heard of that look good as well, also a bunch whose titles interest me yet I have no clue what they are:

Jan. 21: Advance Wars: Days of Ruin from Nintendo/Intelligent Systems
Jan. 21: Mazes of Fate DS from Graffiti Entertainment, LLC (probably gonna be a GBA port, hopefully they touch it up a bit)
January: N+ from Atari (thought this was coming in march?)
Feb. 5: Nanostray 2 from Majesco Entertainment
Feb. 12: Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney from Capcom
Spitfire Heroes: Tales of the RAF (no clue what this is, pretty sure its based ona childrens book)
February: Assassin's Creed Altair's Chronicles™ from Ubisoft (looks kind of like the new Prince of Persia for XBLA)
March 1: Project Exile from Graffiti Entertainment, LLC (looks like Chrono Trigger, which isn't a bad thing)
March 11: FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: Rings of Fate from Square Enix(FF action RPG, haven't tried it but shouldn't be bad for fans of the genre)
March 11: Lost in Blue 3 from Konami (I just started playing LiB 2 and I'm addicted to it, so I'm looking forward to this)
March 25: Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword from Tecmo, Inc.
March: Alone in the Dark from Atari (I heard this was cancelled, not sure though)
March: Drone Tactics from Atlus USA (looks like Advance Wars with robo-bugs, who knows..)
March: Commando from XS Games (is this 07 Commando? If not I'm curious about this one..)
April: Super Dodgeball Brawlers from Aksys Games (these games were always fun)
April: Rondo of Swords from Atlus USA (this game looks cool, rather than walking next to your enemy and choosing "Attack" and going into a little cut-scene of you smacking the guy, you just move through them and any other enemy that happens to be in the way, causing combos and what not, should be interesting)
May: Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles from Aksys Games (looks like a gritty detective story, judging by the screenshots)
Spring: Don King Presents: Prizefighter from 2K Sports (we really need a boxing game for the DS..)
Spring: The World Ends with You from Square Enix (really looking forward to this)
Q2: Bangai-O Spirits from D3 Publisher of America (used to play this on the DC quite often, hopefully this lives up to it)

Pretty good line up to look forward to, also you never know what other games they may announce between now and then.

Naruto ninja destiny is actually the american version of Shinobi Retsuden, which was released in Japan earlier. This version of the game will have additional features over the Japanese version, such as 3 new characters, (Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade) new outfits and new special attacks. The game will also receive a cel-shaded graphical enhancement and feature a much faster frame rate.

  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    touchscreen?????
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    is there any gba homebrew that would offer use for that?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    The Touchscreen makes using system menu options for brightness and filter adjustments easier
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @ColdBlitz, who said anything about touchscreen?
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    the video title is
    "We Now Have A Touch Screen And OLED Modded Game Boy Color"
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    On screen keys would be cool if the rubber ever fails
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I feel like at that point might as well go emulation lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One of those RG things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Some people just like using original hardware for the hobby point of it
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You can easily buy replacement buttons but it's a good fall back
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    on screen keys would be cool but the gba screen is pretty tiny though :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I'd rather use emulation but it's cool regardless again the main point of the Touchscreen isn't just for buttons but for menu options
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    would be way better for menu options
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    although I have huge doubts anyone would be able to make homebrew that would give support for the touch screen
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    then again theres still people who develop games on systems as old as the nes for fun
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    (
    micromages is amazing btw)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I doubted 360 emulation would be possible
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    yet here we are seeing ps4 and even some (very experimental
    ) ps5 emulation
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Ps5 emulation? Why
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I always thought Saturn emulation would straight up be impossible
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Just the atchiture is insanely complex
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's why it annoys me when people rant about things being impossible when it comes to software some things should just be focused on more than others
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    because they want to flex their insane developer skills ofc
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    We have ps5 exploits where's an article talking about ps5 emulation?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    if i wanted to play gb games on a touch screen device i would just use my phone
