Talks about . . . - City of Santa Destroy has been taken over by the huge conglomerate Pizza Butt - Fixing the overworld - New enemies, new AI - Tuning the physics engine - Making the combat "cooler." - More than 10 boss fights happen in the game - More innovative situations for ranking battles, may not be limited to 1 on 1 fighting - Jeane (Travis's cat) is returning and has gained some weight. Thinking about having a minigame where you put her on a diet. Want it to be even better than Ubisoft's Petz titles. - Girl with Blondie hair and glasses is Travis's fan and becomes an assassin herself - Have motel, do more in it such as redecorating. - Travis's bike is back, Mark 2 version though. - Want this game to be as successful as possible, don't want it to lose to any over titles.
Hey, hey, I've got exciting news! I don't know if this was revealed before, but UBI Soft has picked up the sequel for NA, and the release date willbe 1/28/2010. I pulled this from my book distributor's video game listings.
Some control news: 1UP reports that Grasshopper has decided to impliment Classic Controller support for NMH:DS, and that the Motion Plus will NOT be in the game after all. You can thank Monster Hunter 3 Tri's success for this.
