Iwata Asks – Bravely Default Vol. 2 As Translated By A Fan

iwata asks japanese logo Iwata Asks   Bravely Default Vol. 2 As Translated By A Fan

KameDaniRyuu has translated a second part of Nintendo President & CEO Satoru Iwata’s Iwata Asks with the creators of Silicon Studio’s & Square Enix’s 3DS RPG Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. This is part 2 of a fan translation. Here’s part of the Iwata Asks translation as seen on KameDaniRyuu’s Tumblr:

“Asano: The truth is each of the 4 characters stories is created to fit elements of the game system.  First, the main character’s motivation is that “he wants to rebuild his destroyed hometown.”  However, it would take say 1000 hours to rebuild so it would be futile by himself. Using Streetpass, we made a system that increases the town’s population so with 2 people it would take 500 hours, with 4 people it would take 250 hours, and so on.  The town’s restoration pace is planed to exponentially increase.  In short, the main character, when it comes to his design, is the character we gave the wireless functionality.

Iwata: I see.”

Rumor – Wii U To Miss Out On Up To 15 EA Games

frostbite engine logo Rumor   Wii U To Miss Out On Up To 15 EA Games

If you’re a Wii U owner and were hoping to play some of the games EA has planned for future releases, you may be disappointed by this news. According to CVG, EA’s DICE studio has not tried testing the Frostbite 3 Engine on Wii U because when they tested the Frostbite 2 Engine it didn’t work too well according to DICE technical director Johan Andersson. It’s planned for the Frostbite 3 Engine to be used on the next entries in the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series as well as for Battlefield 4. It’s possible it will also be used for EA’s newly acquired license to make Star Wars games. This all follows on the news that Madden NFL 25 would not be releasing for Wii U and the rumor that FIFA 14 would not either. It sure looks like EA is writing off Wii U completely at this point.

“Team NINJA, today confirmed that DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is being developed for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

The game will be published by Tecmo Koei Europe this fall as both retail packaged goods and digital download. DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE heightens the signature DOA fighting style with the inclusion of all of the new modes from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS, new stages and new fighters, including the first ever DOA appearance of Momiji and levels from the NINJA GAIDEN series to deliver the best in fighting entertainment.

“DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is a great addition to our franchise,” said Yosuke Hayashi, Team NINJA leader. “The game has a lot to offer and we’re excited that our fans will have the opportunity to enjoy an experience that delivers on our signature high energy fighting entertainment.”

DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is the definitive DEAD OR ALIVE 5 package, with new content aimed to bring players the best 3D fighting experience to date. The addition of modes from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS, including “Skill Info Plus” and a tutorial mode, will allow novice and expert fighters to refine their fighting style with razor-fine precision.

Players will take on the roles of their favorite DEAD OR ALIVE fighters—as well as combatants new to the franchise—in an intense, action-packed brawler set in visually striking locations from around the world. The game’s dynamic interactive stages include the return of classic fan favorites as well as new locations from the NINJA GAIDEN series such as Sky City Tokyo, and features deadly new danger zones, including the Great Buddha Statue, that change with the flow of the fight.

Characters in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE continue to push a sensual yet realistic style, rendered in incredibly lifelike detail bringing every fighter to life in the heat of combat. The dream lineup is joined by the first ever appearance of NINJA GAIDEN’s Momiji who utilizes the Hayabusa-style Aiki-jujitsu taught to her by the master himself, Ryu Hayabusa.

Soon to be announced additional characters will also add to the massive cast of fighters from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 which includes Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate, Ayane, Kasumi, Hitomi, Bayman, Christie, Lei Fang, Zack, Kokoro, Bass, Rig, Jann Lee, Helena, Lisa, Brad Wong, Eliot, Tina, along with Akira, Pai and Sarah Bryant from the Virtua Fighter series.

Along with a plethora of single-player modes including story mode, DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE will retain Online battles allowing players to compete head-to-head in a variety of playing fields and battle modes with another opportunity for fighters to improve their skills as they watch competitive matches.

Currently in development by Team NINJA, more details about DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE will be revealed in the coming months.”
