On the latest 8-4 play podcast, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the mind behind games like Rez, Space Channel 5, and Lumines, hinted that there would be another Lumines for Sony’s next handheld, the PlayStation Vita.
When asked about what Mizuguchi was working on next, someone on the podcast brought up Lumines. Mizuguchi kept quite, but sounded as if he wanted to say something but couldn’t. James Mielke, a producer at Q Entertainment, was also in the cast of podcasters, and he said the idea “sounds pretty good”.
Look, I think everyone is expecting a Lumines for the Vita. The PSP games are some of the most loved games for that system. It’s just nice that we are at least a little bit more assured the puzzle game will be on the PSV.
Tekken 3DS was one of the new 3DS games announced at E3. Gamespot got an interview with Harada-San of Tekken fame, and they discussed the new Tekken coming to Nintendo’s handheld.
During the interview, Harada-San said that the Tekken 3DS demo being shown at E3 was just a tech demo, but it should be used as a general idea of what the game will look like. As far as the character roster goes, Haradan-San has stated that all the usual characters will make it to the 3DS version, but he “also has a few surprises planned”, and that doesn’t just go for the character roster.
We got some even more exciting news through a written preview GameSpot did. It turns out that Tekken 3DSwill be running at an incredible 60 FPS, even with 3D enabled. That is not a feat accomplished by any existing fighting game on the 3DS. In addition, the demo included five characters: Asuka, Bryan, Heihachi, Kazuya, and Lili. Gamespot states that the 3D is very impressive. The demo wasn’t playable, but the camera was movable.
The release date hasn’t been announced, but Harada-San hopes to have it out “as quickly as possible”.
