Or, as he puts it, Nomura would “love to” work on a follow-up to the game.

The World Ends With You: Advertising player pins

By Jerisaka . May 31, 2008 . 7:53am

The party has progressed through the Game, imprinting memes on people in the Realground, and completing the tasks set by the Reapers. Day Six begins with Neku awakening at scramble crossing, where the story began. He finds he has come to possess a strange new red player pin. Equipping the item seems to do noting […]

The World Ends With You: Haunting Coins on Spain Hill

By Jerisaka . May 19, 2008 . 6:35pm

The Players made it to Towa Records, but not without taking considerable losses to the Reapers.  Both protagonists, bitter about how events have unfolded, lose some confidence in their ability to last a week in the Game.  Neku remarks that his partner would be better off paired with someone she gets along with, like the […]

The World Ends With You: Lights up on A-East

By Jerisaka . May 8, 2008 . 1:36pm

Having cleansed Hachiko of its curse and warded off the Reapers, chapter two ends with Neku turning against his partner in an attempt to escape the Game.  He awakes without a clear recollection of the previous day's events, finding himself in another disorienting unlighted room.  The character's amnesia still appears to be acting up, and […]

More Spectrobes means more money for Jupiter

By Spencer . March 20, 2008 . 12:09am

As we saw from a Tokyo Game Show teaser Disney Interactive is developing a follow up to Spectrobes and today it has a name, Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals. On top of collecting fossilized creatures with Rallen, Jeena, the data collection specialist from the first game is a playable character. More creatures and Nintendo Wi-Fi battles […]

More Spectrobes in 2008

By Spencer . September 21, 2007 . 3:48am

Inside Sega's booth was a small stand for Disney Interactive Japan who was heavily promoting the Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End. Adjacent to a Disney Friends demo was a single LCD monitor with a sign for Spectrobes 2. No system or timetable has been announced, but I think it's safe to assume Spectrobes […]

Strange censorship in Spectrobes

By Spencer . March 14, 2007 . 11:12am

Since Spectrobes is a family title and the names of your Spectrobes are sent to an online database it is natural for Disney Interactive to censor out some four letter words. However, I never knew that “Sega” was as bad a curse word, but according to the Spectrobes team it is. If you try to […]

Spectrobes: Disney’s take on J-RPGs

By Spencer . March 13, 2007 . 3:59pm

Disney Interactive and Jupiter teamed up to make a new series with a manga feel and collectable monsters. It’s obvious that Spectrobes is inspired by games like Pokemon, but there is a little more background than the dream of being the greatest Spectrobes trainer. The story begins with Rallen an intergalactic planetary patrol officer who […]

Watch: Spectrobes the trailer

By Spencer . February 2, 2007 . 6:21pm

This new trailer of Spectrobes shows off some quick CG clips of Rallen and some gameplay footage with him paired up with two Spectrobes in combat. In between the usual footage you can see a glimpse of how the Spectrobes evolve from their cutesy youth form to their battle ready “awakened” forms. Probably the most […]

Playing Picross DS

By Spencer . January 30, 2007 . 2:16pm

Nintendo tried bringing Picross outside of Japan in 1995 when they released Mario’s Picross for the Game Boy. Picross is sort of like a cross between minesweeper and paint by number. You’re given clues to how many squares you need to hit by the numbers on the left and top of the screen. The challenge […]

Spectrobes: More than intergalactic Pokemon

By Spencer . January 26, 2007 . 12:53am

I had the pleasure of sitting in on a call about Buena Vista’s upcoming game Spectrobes. It’s being developed by Jupiter who you might recognize as the developer of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. In Spectrboes you play as the planetary patrol scout, Rallen, who is given the ability to excavate Spectrobes from the Earth. […]
