Top 30, reviews, and more.
Following last week's Zelda announcement, the big news this week is the
announcement of 5 new Capcom games for the GameCube. The magazine includes
a DVD featuring trailers from Biohazard 0, Biohazard 4, Killer 7, Viewtiful
Joe, and Dead Phoenix. According to the magazine, P.N.03 will be the first
of the five titles to hit the shelves in Spring 2003. Viewtiful Joe is
currently 50 percent complete. Dead Phoneix is 30 percent complete and
Killer7 is only 7 percent complete.
Only one GameCube game was reviewed this week. WaiWai Golf (Swingerz Golf elsewhere), from Eidos Interactive, received (8,9,9,7) making it eligible for a gold mark.
Four GBA games were reviewed, but none of them fared very well. In
particular, Jikkyo World Soccer Pocket 2 received (6,5,7,6) and ChoroQ
Advance 2 received (6,6,6,6).
Lastly, three Nintendo console titles populate the top five spots of Famitsu's Japan sales charts. Mario Party 4
came in as number one while Hoshi no Kirby Fountain of Dreams Deluxe hung
on to third spot and From TV Animation ONE PIECE Treasure Battle! slides to
fourth place. Super Mario Sunshine and Star Fox Adventure hang in at 22 and
23 respectively, and Pokemon Crystal version, waiting for its successor to
dominate the charts, sits at 25. Unfortunately, Eternal Darkness has dropped out of the Top 30.
