Former Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon developers working on comedy RPG

EdenIndustries, a Canadian indie studio that consists of developers who have worked on games like Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Guacamelee and Waveform, launched a Kickstarter campaign today to help it finish its comedy role-playing game, Citizens of Earth. The game, of which there is already a playable demo, puts the player in the role of Vice President of the World. Players will have to recruit ordinary citizens into their party, each with special skills based on their stereotypical roles within society. Some of the kinds of characters the player will be able to recruit include the town barista, the local baker, school teachers, yoga instructors and, of course, your mom. The player's party will travel around the world map under the Vice President's guidance to help him save the world...


Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon won't just rely on nostalgia to win players, developers say

When Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon releases in North America on the 3DS next week, it will do more than serve as a nostalgia trip for fans of the original game, according to Nintendo and Next Level Games. Speaking in an interview with Polygon, the developers said that while they were making a sequel to Luigi's Mansion — a game that released more than 10 years ago on the GameCube and has since become "a precious memory to a lot of people" — the teams had to carefully find a balance between the old and the new. In the former, they had to capture what fans loved so much about the original Luigi's Mansion. In the latter, they couldn't just rely on elements of nostalgia to keep players interested. "When you're sequelling or bringing back a franchise, you need to respect the original...

Iwata: Nintendo plans to increase profits with the help of Monster Hunter 4, Pokémon X/Y, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and more

In a briefing of financial results held today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata gave a presentation outlining the reasons why the company's third quarter earnings took a hit and what it plans to do to return to "Nintendo-like" profits again. Iwata said Nintendo performed well in its domestic market of Japan, but its performance in the U.S. in 2012 was partly to blame for its lower-than-expected earnings. Citing a list of the top 20 games sold in the last calendar year in the U.S. Iwata said Nintendo performed the least favorably, to the point where the downward revision of its financial forecast "is largely attributed to the slow growth in the U.S. sales." Of the 20 titles on the list, only five were for Nintendo platforms. Games that performed well in Japan like Animal Crossing: New...
