When a new system is introduced into the wild it needs something to show what it can do. When it introduces a new game mechanic you need it even more. This is what Nintendo Land is for the Wii U. Nintendo Land is going to be a series of 12 games that are situated in an amusement park setting. The majority of these are party games meant for a 3 to 5 people, but there are some single player games for those of us that don't have the time to gather a ton if people around (otherwise know as an adult).
"Young Justice", the Cartoon Network TV series about the younger DC heroes, is getting its own game. This game is 100% canon with the TV series. To get more on this we sat down with the creators of Young Justice for details on how this will work.
First a little background on the series. "Young Justice" has reached the second season, and if you are following it you may have noticed their was a five year gap between season one and season two. A lot changed during that gap. Artimis and Kid Flash both left the super hero life style, Beast Boy and Blue Beetle joined the team, and Aqualad turned to the dark side and works for Black Manta, his father, now. But how did this all happen? When Little Orbit (the studio making the game) approached the creators they decided the game would be the perfect way to tell how what happened. The game focuses on what is initially a search for a missing archeologist, but turns into something much bigger. The mission takes team members to locations such as Greece and Siberia for this major event, and eventually involves members of the Justice League.
This game has been in production since October and is going to play a little like "Marvel Ultimate Alliance" where you choose your team and level them up. This allows you to fell as if you are growing them into the heroes you see in "Young Justice: Invasion". Robin (Dick Grayson) becomes Nightwing and Robin (Tim Drake) is introduced as an example. As you play this, you form these characters into what you see in the show. The game overall will have 12 playable heroes. They are Nightwing, Superboy, Miss Martian, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Artimis, Zataana, Beast Boy, Tempest, Robin (Tim Drake), Rocket and Batgirl. Together the will have to defeat 12 villains. The tag line for the game is "One will rise. One will fall. One will die". Given the series will see Dick Grayson rise to Nightwing, Aqualad fall, but the death is a mystery to me. I can guess that it may be Zatanna since I have not seen her in the series, but that is just a guess. Look for more on the game at http://www.youngjusticelegacy.com/.
Edit: Looks like I was wrong about who will die, the mystery is still alive! Thanks commenters!
E3 – The Final Day Wow, has it been three days already? More pictures were taken, more demos were played, and more swag was had. The events that took place seem almost too much for words. But we will try our best for you. Things started off for us back at the Nintendo booth where we immediately lined up for Zelda, and it was even the correct line this time.
Day 2 of E3 has come to and end. We have more pictures for you to browse through. Now that part is over, lets get on with the info. First and foremost, what everyone was been dying to hear, VALVES BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! Portal 2 is coming to the PS3 and Steamworks now works for said system. Now that is a big one isn't it. Moving on. We attempted to see the official Microsoft Kinect demo, and gave up after standing in line for 40 minutes, moved about 3 feet, and said screw it.
