New Epic Mickey 2 Screens Show Fort Wasteland

New Epic Mickey 2 Screens Show Fort Wasteland

The first Epic Mickey on the Wii didn’t get as much success in terms of sales, despite being critically lauded and receiving good reviews. Disney, Warren Spector, and co. seem to be chalking this up to a fluke as they are once again ready to revisit the franchise in Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, but this time they’re going to go multiplatform, as the game will be released for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii. There will also be a 3DS port that will be a 2D sidescroller instead of 3D platformer.

Release date for Epic Mickey: The Power of Two is November 18.

As 2012 opens we look back at the year 2011 to see what was the best and most inspiring thing that came into the year. What was it you say? Why it’s the 25th anniversary of “The Legend of Zelda” of course!

In 2011 Nintendo celebrated the 25th anniversary of The legend of Zelda in 2011’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (Otherwise known as E3 expo) and opened their conference with an Orchestra performance.Not only did Nintendo celebrate,  the fans also joined in the celebration by remembering all of the past games they have been playing for over the years. Either being  old fans from the NES days or new fans who are only starting to get hooked on Link’s current gen adventures. The young hero Link has been battling Ganondorf  and winning our hearts all throughout these 25 years, as he went on tirelessly saving princess Zelda and slaying wicked monsters.

Lets take a  quick look into the past and see how Link started his Adventure (a gaming history lesson you all need to learn if you want to be in the gaming industry. Click the words that are in blue and underline for a quick look up if you don’t know what they mean, kids. Like cartridge, Famicom, Gameboy, etc.)

Raving Rabbids TV series licensed by CPLG

Raving Rabbids TV series licensed by CPLG

The Copyright Promotions Licensing Group (CPLG) has recently acquired a non-exclusive license for the upcoming Rabbids TV series, which is scheduled for a 2013 TV launch in the EMEA region. The Rabbids TV series is an upcoming show based on characters that originally appeared in the Rayman: Raving Rabids Wii game from Ubisoft. The Rabbids’ wacky antics and cartoonish behavior were so well received by gamers that they have started to overtake the franchise’s main character, Rayman, in popularity polls. With the Rabbids popularity comes appearances in merchandise and media that even the Rayman character didn’t appear in: kids merchandise and viral Youtube videos that were viewed by millions of fans.

Raving Rabbids CG series is a scream for Ubisoft and Nickelodeon

Raving Rabbids CG series is a scream for Ubisoft and Nickelodeon

They have funny ears, and they scream. They run at you with various attacks, and they scream. They fall down holes, get electrocuted, or just put on funny disco costumes and dance. …and they scream. Ubisoft’s Raving Rabbids have, for years, been entertaining video game fanatics around the globe, long since stepping out of Rayman’s shadow. With their popularity spiking through hits on the Nintendo Wii, we often thought how fun it might be to see the Raving Rabbids on our televisions, as their own animated series. It seems like the good folks at Ubisoft Motion Pictures were listening to us, as they’ve been hard at work on over 70, 7-minute episodes featuring the rude little bunny mutants, ready to hit their air on Nickelodeon in 2013!

Pokemon the Movie: White: Victini and Zekrom hits December 3rd and 4th

Pokemon the Movie: White: Victini and Zekrom hits December 3rd and 4th

After all these years, we’re pretty sure Pokemon is a popular franchise. The success of current Pokemon games across the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii, as well as Cartoon Network’s Pokemon Black & White animated series, is a testament to this franchise. But that wont stop The Pokemon Company International from dreaming up the next big thing; like teaming with Cinedigm to release Pokemon the Movie: White: Victini and Zekrom! The film hits select theaters in the U.S. for just a single weekend during the holiday season, December 3rd and December 4th, so, absolutely, you Gotta Catch’em all! …don’t be too upset, because you’ll never know when a second film (like, oh, I don’t know… Pokemon the Movie: Black: Victini and Reshiram) will hit. Check out the teaser trailer and some screen grabs!

PokePark 2: Beyond the World brings Pokemon back to the Nintendo Wii

PokePark 2: Beyond the World brings Pokemon back to the Nintendo Wii

In the clearly never-ending case of “gotta catch’em all!” Nintendo Wii is getting yet another Pokemon game! No, we’re still not going to get the classic handheld Pokemon format on the big screen, as this latest console adventure is yet another sidequest type. However, it is another Pokemon game, so it’s difficult not to love it! The title, PokePark 2: Beyond the World, is a sequel to last year’s game, PokePark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure, and again follows the format of minigames. Creatures Inc hopes to have the game to stores in Japan this winter, with Pikachu returning as the star Pocket Monster.

Puppy, Planet Sheen, Fanboby and Chum Chum, Danny Phantom, Invader Zim, and last but certainly not least, Ren and Stimpy. If that’s not enough, gamers will have access to over 300 MLB pros, with stadiums from both the real world and animated world.

Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D becomes ChipWrecked

Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D becomes ChipWrecked

Few things sound more enjoyable than taking a trip around the tropics on a luxury cruise ship. Unless, of course, there’s constantly the angry yelling of the phrase, “Alvin!!!” in the background. With that in mind, you’ll likely not want to board with Alvin, Simon, and Theodore this December, when they cast off in the latest 3D adventure, Alvin and the Chipmunks ChipWrecked. The film, formally titled Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D, follows the Chipmunks and the Chipettes (Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor) turning the cruise ship into their personal playground until they become shipwrecked on a desert island. As David Seville searches frantically, the 6 critters do their best waiting for rescue by singing, dancing, and generally rocking the island! Oh, and maybe there’s some buried treasure. We’ll see.
