The biggest news at the conference probably revolves around the 3DS. Some news that I’m excited about is the announcement of Megaman Legends 3, a vastly improved Tag Mode, handheld Virtual Console (Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, and “Classics”), and the ability to transfer download data like game. The 3DS is coming out February 26th in Japan and sometime in March for Europe and America. It has two colors for launch, Blue an Black. More blue, really?
Other news about Wii and DS games was also released. There is a Rhythm Heaven Title in the works for Wii.
There is also a Fatal Frame shown in Wii games, I’m not sure if will be a remake of Fatal Frame 2, or if it will be a new game. But seeing as how Fatal Frame 4 was never released in the US, I’m not sure how much interest I want to invest in this news.
There is also a new Kirby game coming to DS, and it has you controlling multiple Kirbys. Could be fun.
All the screens and videos can be found HERE, and hopefully there will be news from Nintendo of America soon, like today.

Through watching anime I have come across three characters that all happen to be Captains and all have very similar characteristics.
The first I encountered was Robotech’s Captain Henry J. Gloval
The next character is Catain Nemo from Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. At First I thought that Nemo and Gloval were the same person.
The third, Captain Harlock is seen in many shows from artist Leiji Matsumoto. He doesn’t look as much like the other two but to me still gives off the same vibe.
There is another character that I can think of but I will wait to bring up that one.
Edit: I just discovered that this other character that I was thinking of actually pays homage to Captain Harlock.
Simon, From Gurren Lagann is the above mentioned reference to Captain Harlock
The Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze from the Naruto Series.

I’m back in less than full force with two videos from up coming WiiWare titles This first I’m posting will likely be out in the good ole’ US of A first. A physics based, till controlled, water moving, puzzle game.
and the second is coming out this month in Japan, looks like 3D intepritaion of the Stage Racer mode from Tetris Party (also on WiiWare) with a slight twist.
