The_Legend_of_Zelda_Twilight_Princess_wii_wallpaper3

Nintendo might be remaking The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess 3D on the Nintendo 3DS. This rumor starts with a tweet sent out by David Tarakanoff. He received a streetpass from a user at The Legend of Zelda Symphony Concerts, and the game that streetpass user was currently playing was The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess 3D….. Yeah, that game is not announced yet. Considering the original game was on the GameCube and Wii, I would think this game would be a New Nintendo 3DS exclusive.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is a First Party game, Nintendo Owns 96% (or more) of Monolith Soft

Xenoblade-1-670x377

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of people claim that Xenoblade Chronicles X is a second party game, it should come to PC, and all sorts of nonsense. Sooo…. I’m here to set the record straight. Nintendo owns nearly 100% of Monolith Soft.

Back in 2007, Nintendo acquired 80% of Monolith Soft from Bandai Namco, later, Bandai Namco sold their remaining 16% of stock to Nintendo, making Monolith Soft a “first party developer”. I saw this thread over on the VGChartz forums, in addition to “some” of my own users on YouTube saying that Monolith is a “second party” studio for Nintendo. Just so we’re all clear. Xenoblade Chronicles X and Monolith Soft are as first party as Metroid Prime with Retro Studios. Hirohide Sugiura and Tetsuya Takahashi might own the remaining stock for the company, as they are the original founders of Monolith Soft. However, it’s completely possible Nintendo acquired the remaining 4%.

Project X Zone has sold over 400,000 Units, says Bandai Namco

Project-X-Zone

Project X Zone 2 will be heading to Nintendo 3DS systems this fall, thanks to the good sales of Project X Zone 1. Bandai Namco announced the first game has sold over 400,000 units worldwide. “With more than 400 000 units, the first episode of this Tactical-RPG series surprised not only fans but also press thanks to its massive line-up, stirring gameplay and unique humour,” said Bandai Namco. That’s the great thing about the 3DS. You don’t have to sell a crazy amount of units to be profitable.

Project X Zone 2: Brave New World Coming to the 3DS – HYPE!

Project-X-Zone

Well this is freaking hype! Capcom has announced Project X Zone 2: Brave New World will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo’s own Monolith Soft helped out with the first game, so it’s good to see a sequel is coming out. Project X Zone got off to a slow start in Japan, but the US and digital sales ending up being better than Bandai Namco thought it would do based on the Japanese sales. No info on the game at the moment, but I’m super happy to share this info with you guys. Via: Nintendo Everything, Source: NeoGAF
