The List: Nintendo's Downloadable Games for Revolution[nintendo]
Speaking to Famitsu, Nintendo confirmed that all of their published NES, SNES, and N64 games will be available for download. While the magazine didn't offer a complete list of the games, some gamers have compiled lists of their own. The number of released titles appears to be ranging between 214 and 221, but in any case, here's the one IGN has up. They're quick to point out that in the end, some titles won't make it such as Banjo Kazooie as Rare holds the license on that.
Studios Bidding on Halo Movie Script[xbox]
Most of the major picture studios received the Halo script today and they are currently engaging in a bidding war for the rights to make the movie. Microsoft tapped 28 Days Later writer Alex Garland to pen the movie adaptation and had messengers dressed as the Master Chief to hit up each studio with the script. The studios were to read it over lunch and place bids in the afternoon. According to Defamer.com, those privy to info on the script say it's a dud. Hmm, a Hollywood insider saying a game adaptation script is a "horrible?" Considering they're the peeps responsible for Alone in the Dark and House of the Dead, maybe that's a good thing!
Ninja Gaiden Black to Sell at $29.99[xbox]
Tecmo confirmed today that Ninja Gaiden Black for the Xbox will retail at $29.99. A Tecmo rep told GameSpot to not be fooled by its value price. "I don't want you to think that NGB is going to be a cheap re-make of NG because Team Ninja has been working their butts off to completely revamp the game from the ground up and adding loads of new stuff," the rep said.
New Donkey Kong for Revolution[nintendo]
Not necessarily surprising news, but it's the first we've heard of it. Nintendo confirmed to Famitsu that a Donkey Kong title is being developed for the Revolution. Absolutely no specifics were given, so it's up in the air if its a platformer, another Donkey Konga, or something completely different.
A New Wreckless Game in the Works?[xbox]
Just yesterday I was thinking, "Hmm, how come they didn't make a sequel to Wreckless?" It was one of the Xbox's first big titles but never was any mention of a sequel muttered.. until now. IGN discovered on a Japanese retail site a listing for Double S.T.E.A.L. The Second Crush. Well, it so happens to be that Wreckless was called Double S.T.E.A.L. in Japan. However, it has an August 4 release date and a reduced price tag. Maybe it's not a sequel and just a re-release?
