With the Consumer Electronics Show seemingly dominating the recent headlines, you would be forgiven for not noticing the other gaming news that has been trickling out from various sources. So in the interest of keeping you up to date we here at the MCM Buzz have compiled a few stories that you may have missed!

Ninja Gaiden 3 Collector’s Edition revealed:

With the game’s March 20th release almost upon us, Tecmo Koei have released the official shots of what the collector’s edition of the game (priced at $100) will look like to those lucky enough to be purchasing it. The CE version of the games comes with the following:

  • An “Unmask” art book
  • A soundtrack CD
  • An awesome looking figurine and
  • A premium Dead or Alive 5 demo code that will allow players to have access to a demo with four players unlocked.

And if that does not get you salivating, then head on over to the Official Xbox magazines website for a look at the first 30 minutes of the game, which appear to be set in London!

Ninja Gaiden 3 is set for a cross console release on March 20th in North America and March 23rd in the UK.

New Pokemon Crossover game to feature 6 on 6 battles?

Yes you read that right, the newest Pokemon game, Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition will apparently feature 6 on 6 battles, in which 6 players using only one Pokemon, will be able to fight each other using standard Pokemon rules.  

The game, which is a crossover with Techmo Koei, in particular their Nobunaga’s Ambition strategy role-playing game series, will see new Pokemon addition Zekrom team with the title character Nobunaga. The player meanwhile will start the game by choosing from either a male or female character, who is then teamed up with Eevee and together you will have to conquer 17 castles in the game’s single player campaign mode.

Nintendo has also added a multiplayer mode that will allow players to compete against each other online via Nintendo Wi-Fi  when the game is released on Nintendo DS in Japan on March 17th.

And finally in our mini gaming news round……

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance announces another whole new world!

My bad Disney puns aside and it looks like more good news for Kingdom Hearts and Disney fans as Square Enix have confirmed that fans will get to travel to yet another new world in their forthcoming 3DS Kingdom Hearts title. This new world is called, “Symphony of Sorcery,” and will see our heroes Sora and Riku travel to a world based on the classic Disney movie, Fantasia.

In the screenshots released in the V-Jump magazine, Sora can be seen standing in front of Sorcerer Mickey, whilst in another scene we see Mickey commanding brooms who are holding buckets. This new world joins the previously announced three which are:

  • “Country of the Musketeers”  based on The Three Musketeers,
  • “Prankster’s Paradise” a world that is based on Pinocchio,
  • and “La Cité des Cloches” a world which is based on The Hunchback of Notre Dame. 

These worlds aside, the V-Jump magazine page also shows Sora decked out in what appears to be a Tron Legacy costume, a move which is sure to send Cosplayers worldwide into a frenzied dive for their sowing kits.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is set to be released on the Nintendo 3DS this Spring.
