In more Atari-related news, Adventure II for the Atari 5200 and 8-bit computers, now has an official license from Atari Corp to use the Adventure name. There’s a movie available for download on the site, as well as some screens – it’s planned for a physical cart release before the end of the year.
Forget Sony’s PSP, and mock Nintendo’s Play-Yan, because here’s the real hardcore experience for movie fans: a movie played on the Atari Lynx. Sure, right now it only runs at 12fps and lasts about 4 seconds, but the Lynx has never been the bastion of long playtime anyway… Too bad the author, Exceed, had the poor taste of testing it with Taxi 3.
Apparently this guy is very excited with all things related to Atari and even has things to say about the Amiga, so you might want to keep a bookmark somewhere. Thanks Kanu for the link.
The Behemoth have announced that they will be unveiling a new console title at Comic-Con in San Diego this year. The event begins on the 14th of July, so details should surface around then. Is it another flash port? Is it Alien Hominid: After Dark with Missus Hominid? Only time will tell you!
Edge Online has put up a very nice series of interviews, which originally ran in the proper magazine. It’s called The Small Guns, and deals with the trials and tribulations of these three small companies, none of which has a staff size larger than eight. Of particular note is the Milestone interview in the middle, stating that the group are all ex-compile staff. Ranging from very logical to a bit delusional (Triangle!), these are all worth reading.
For those PSP users who were wary of swapping memory sticks to perform the recently exposed hack for 1.5 firmwares, Killer-X and PSP-Dev bring you KXploit, allowing gamers their homebrewed fun (Emus? Those are animals, right?) without the swap.
It already was a loudly-spoken secret, but now it has an official nature thanks to Nikkei: The next volumes in the Neo-Geo Online Collection after The King of Fighters: Nests Hen will have the (provisional) names of ‘Ryuuko no Ken’ (Art of Fighting), ‘Samurai Spirits’ and ‘World Heroes’. They supposedly will include more than one game per volume, but it hasn’t been revealed yet. The first one, ‘Ryuuko no Ken’, is scheduled for this year.
The official US site is up for Riviera, including screens and movies. Watch the last three to get a good taste of what the dialog is like…it seems to have largely been left intact. The game is also rated teen, meaning that nothing has been cut from the original. The game comes out tuesday (the 28th), so buy it!
There have long been unofficial servers for the dreamcast version of PSO, but now there’s also a homebrew quest! The author is french, so the dialog is very frenglishy, but it’s quite cool to see people doing things like this with the game. Thanks to Sweaterfish for the news.
As we reported back in September, Atlus is preparing a PSP version of Saturn’s fabulous Princess Crown from 1997. Today, Rakuten has let us know some bits of information. The game will presumably be a direct port, with the possibility to adapt the screen format to 16:9 and change the text font. We don’t know how they are doing the change to the PSP screen’s hi-res display, though. Release date is September, 22nd.
