Somehow the thing that has me most excited of this lot is Ghost Trick. The new trailer is interesting.

BlackNMild2k1April 20, 2010

So no Resident Evil game huh.....
well the Rearmed 2 rumor turned out true so I was hoping the RE one did too.
Maybe at E3 then.....

NWR_KarlKarl Castaneda, Contributing EditorApril 20, 2010

I seriously doubt this is their entire schedule for next year, or even their entire big release schedule for next year. A new Resident Evil game on Wii could still happen.

BlackNMild2k1April 20, 2010

It was rumored to be announced this week (after Captivate 2010), revealed @ E3 and released this year.

But it's possible they're saving it for E3 assuming it's true.

D_AverageApril 20, 2010

Resident Evil Shmizident Evil. All that matters is the new Rearmed. Now with jumping!  Can't wait.

ReArmed 2!!! This may seem odd, but I wish it was being announced for DS as well as the download platforms. And while they're scaling it down, a WiiWare port would be nice... No info yet, but it may be in development at the new studio formed by ex-GRIN staff.

In other news, I'm very happy that Okamiden is confirmed for America, and yet disappointed that it's penciled in for 2011. Isn't it coming out in Japan very soon? Well, I guess it'll be the system's last hurrah before 3DS takes over.

ViewtifulGamer?  WTF!

It's apparently being developer by another company made up of ex-GRIN staff members.

This line-up is sadder than Nintendo's non-existant holiday 2010 line-up.

Yeah, for some reason, when my site ID got reactivated, it apparently linked to my old forum account, not my new one. Go figure.

ShyGuyApril 20, 2010

Yay, Karl is back!

vuduApril 20, 2010

You know, I can just reset your password on your old account if you want to start using that one again.  ;D

NWR_KarlKarl Castaneda, Contributing EditorApril 20, 2010

Nah, it's cool. I actually prefer this one - I haven't gone by ViewtifulGamer in years. Thanks, though.

Vudu, stop trying to stomp out what I do just because you were given mod permissions.  I brought you into this world...I can take you out!

LOL, do not trifle with Lord Lindy, Sith Master. ;)

In other thoughts:

YAY for Okami!!!

Marvel vs Capcom 3?! Not for Wii?! Come on!

Surprising considering Tatsunoko Vs Capcom has reportedly done well Stateside despite the lesser known franchise.

Mop it upApril 20, 2010

No new Mega Man games? That's a bit surprising. This can't be all they'll release.

You mean NOT surprising because it would make money, right?

Hey, now!  I'm just trying to do my part.  I may not be able to implement Facebook integration but I can help with password resets.  ;)

MorariApril 20, 2010

I think I had a nergasm just reading the title "Marvel vs. Capcom 3".

NinGurl69 *hugglesApril 20, 2010

Hope it's 2D sprites of live actors just like the Street Fighter Movie arcade game.  It can have all the current cast members we've seen in the Marvel films.

CalibanApril 20, 2010

Okamiden for 2011... why the torture, why.

(Unrealistically,) I'd also accept it if it came for Dreamcast. :) (But seriously,) as a moderate fan of Capcom and their fighters and as a HUGE marvel fan, I'm very sad that it's not for Wii... I don't have a 360/PS3. :(

Please no.  ::barf::
