A Tribute to Satoru Iwata: Rest in Peace, Iwata-San

12 July 2015 8:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“Although many believe that technology automatically enables more realistic expression, I believe that is just not correct.”-Satoru Iwata

I rarely write obituaries about famous people — because while I admire what many people have done in their careers, I feel it is somewhat disingenuous to write about someone at such a tragic time when I myself have no personal connection with the person who has passed away. We actually have a policy here at Sound On Sight; I discourage our writers to avoid publishing news about celebrities or industry folk who have died unless they have something deeply personal to say or have an extensive knowledge of the person’s life and work. In other words, we restrain from publishing click bait articles, and so this is not a news story. I’m not here to announce the death of a great man. This is instead a small tribute »

Capcom Is Selling Wearable Mega Man Helmets

9 July 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ever wanted a helmet to look just like your favorite character Mega Man? Well you are in luck because Capcom is finally selling them. Yes we are serious, come check it out!

The helmets are up for pre-order on the official Capcom storefront for $150. It is noted this is the only place you will be able to get them, at least for now. They will ship "winter 2015." Better hurry though because Capcom has noted "extremely limited quantities will be produced based on advance pre-orders."

The helmets are 14 inches tall by 11 inches wide and weigh 3 pounds. The helmets are made out of high quality Abs plastic, with a polish finish and working Led lights and fit like a clamshell. The helmets are also said to come with a "decorative box" for display purposes, but the box has yet to be revealed.

Ranking Nintendo’s Consoles #2: Nintendo Entertainment System

6 July 2015 4:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nintendo Entertainment System (1985)

The Japanese video game giant Nintendo emerged as a global leader in the video game industry when it unveiled the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. The Nes went on to become the best-selling gaming console of its time and thirty years later, the Nes still play a major influence on the entire industry. Now I’ve heard the argument that the admiration toward the Nes is largely due to nostalgia, but one can make that very same argument towards anything we hold dear, including any one of the consoles appearing on this list. However, the Nintendo Entertainment System stands the test of time, proven by the simple fact that gamers still purchase and/or play Nes titles to this day. And even though Nintendo stopped production of software for the Nes, the aftermarket library keeps growing, with countless new titles made by many diehard game designers who’ve »

Update: Mega Man Legends successor Red Ash hits Kickstarter

3 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of the release of Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune has teased Red Ash - a new game thought to revive the spirit of Mega Man Legends...

Update: As predicted, Keiji Inafune's next game inspired by his own Mega Man series has appeared on Kickstarter. Called Red Ash: The Indelible Legend, it's a return to the 3D, free-roaming action of Mega Man Legends (or Rockman Dash as it was known in Japan) - the Mega Man spin-off Inafune created at Capcom before he left in 2011.

As Mighty No. 9 was when it launched on Kickstarter in 2012, Red Ash is currently in its very early pre-planning stages. Inafune's campaign video has little more to show than some charming but very sketchy animatics and concept art - plus the Inafune's celebrity to front it, of course. The Japanese game designer aims to create a "freely explorable anime world" with his team at Comcept, »

Mighty No. 9 Hands-On Preview [E3 2015]

21 June 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As cynical as I am, Mighty No. 9 was one title I was looking forward to getting some hands-on time with, especially considering the amount of fanfare that has already been built around it. Although I’m not a huge fan of the Mega Man series, it was one I was hoping to see get revisited, and if this is as close as we can get to that, then Mighty No. 9 will have no problem satisfying fans new and old.

Technically more of a spiritual successor than a true sequel, Mighty No. 9 is being produced by Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune, who is definitely bringing some old-school flair to the title. The version we were given to play had multiple stages available for play, so we went with the first two to get a feel of where the story is heading.

E3 2015: Masahiro Sakurai’s Super Smash Bros. presentation is a smashing success despite early leaks

14 June 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nintendo has big plans for E3 2015, and it began with Masahiro Sakurai’s special video presentation for Super Smash Bros. Unfortunately, footage showcasing Ryu from Street Fighter and Roy from the Fire Emblem series as playable characters in the game was leaked yesterday, taking a bit of the fun out of the presentation that streamed live earlier today. The leak was a result of hackers exploiting a Japanese update for the games that went up earlier than expected. Either way, the special video presentation unveiled a smashing amount of new content for the games. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect.

Ryu from Street Fighter®: For the first time in Super Smash Bros. history, a character from the fighting game series Street Fighter® joins the battle. Iconic character Ryu, whose look in the game is based on Street Fighter II®, brings a new fighting style and feel to Super Smash Bros. »

Ryu, Roy And More Confirmed For Super Smash Bros. Via Leak

13 June 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Big N has planned to stream a Nintendo Direct conference tomorrow offering new details on upcoming content for the Wii U and 3Ds entries of Super Smash Bros., but a lot, if not all of their potential surprises may have gotten out early. A new patch recently hit the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and fan Liam Robertson did some analyzing of the data within the patch and found proof of two previously unannounced fighters who will hit the game as downloadable add-ons in the near future.

One character, Roy from the Fire Emblem series, previously appeared in the Gamecube entry Super Smash Bros. Melee, but has been absent from the series up to this point. The other character will probably be seen as the more enticing announcement, due to this being their first appearance in the series. None other than Ryu, the lead character »
