New Japanese website and video for Kirby’s Return to Dreamland

Bright pastel colors, cute adorable characters, and the power of gluttony; it must be time for another game from Nintendo’s pink sucking machine, Kirby. Marked as Kirby’s epic return to Dreamland, the location of his first outing back in the original Game Boy era, this new game will be a return back to the original platforming style of Kirby’s old games.

In the video below, taken from the Japanese site, you’ll see the game’s truly brilliant plot set up. Something about Kirby stealing a cake and the Black Rock from Lost crashing near Kirby and his friends. I’m not really sure. The game will feature four player co-op and players will have the ability to drop in and out of gameplay. The game is scheduled to come out in October.

Shinobi Trailer shows off street pass potential

Since the release of the 3DS, I have never really understood the concept of the Street Pass with the system. Now with a new trailer released by SEGA for their new entry in the Shinobi series, I’ll probably still misunderstand the concept. In this trailer you’ll see some very cool gameplay footage and learn of how to gain access to some new maps and challenges via Nintendo’s Street Pass feature.

Plus, in the game you’ll be able to unlock Joe Musashi, the legendary hero from the first arcade game back in 1987, as a playable character. Shinobi 3DS is due out in November. Check out the new trailer below.

It’s also very informative regrading how to use a Hook Blade and also says the work “Hook Blade” a lot …Hook Blade.

What would Jesus play?

Looks Legit

Um, Well a woman from Maryland apparently bought a used Nintendo Entertainment System on Ebay, for $31, and was shocked to see an image of Jesus. Although she doesn’t seem to know what to think, she contacted Kotaku stating, “If it is Jesus,” “I think we can finally put the big question to bed…What Would Jesus Play?”

Here are a couple of lads at the EuroGamer Expo showing off some off-screen action of Batman: Arkham City.

This dude enjoyed playing Catwoman way too much. Whips and leather are apparently more appealing to him.

Some highlights:

  • Catwoman Action at the beginning of the video
  • Amazing City landscape at 3:00min mark
  • Batman ownage after 3min mark
