Mega Man Legacy Collection devs working on a "new compilation" with Capcom

Coming from Mega Man Legacy Collection producer and director Frank Cifaldi...

- Digital Eclipse are working on a new Capcom game compilation
- it could be announced relatively soon

"I shipped a collection called Mega Man Legacy Collection the year before last (it's been a while), and we've got another one coming out soon that they're gonna announce any day now. I don't know when - I wish I could talk about it but it's really cool."

Just to be clear, we know that the project is Capcom-related, but we don't know if it's Mega Man related. Let's hope we find out soon!

How Miyamoto And Aonuma Are Training Nintendo's Next Generation - video interview

Check out the video interview here

- Miyamoto says game design has two different aspects: building the core and then decorative exterior design
- Miyamoto says the older devs can't keep up with the decorative design, so they have the younger folks take that on
- if the younger generation takes on all that work, they tend to follow the current trends or what everyone else is doing
- this is why it's important for both generations to work together
- Aonuma believes the younger generations are a bit more serious in some ways, which causes them to get lost
- the older generation goes on instinct, and they teach the younger generation to trust instinct and go with the flow
- the philosophy of Nintendo has always been to be unique and different
- they don't try to compete with the current trends or fads
- Miyamoto tells the younger devs to think seriously about what they want to make
- Aonuma wants younger generations to use the older generation's point of view for reference
- Whenever Aonuma finishes a game and shows it to Miyamoto, he gets unexpected comments he could never have envisioned
- these lead to new ideas
- incorporating those unexpected comments to create new ideas is important to Nintendo

Happy 21st anniversary, Pokemon Red/Blue!

21 years to the day. Believe it or not, it's been 21 long years since the Pokemon franchise first debuted on the Game Boy. I cannot believe it's been so long! I remember my first days with the game very well, and I was in high school! Oh man, I am so old...

Japan's latest Pokemon Sun/Moon commercial features Usain Bolt

This is the latest in a series of Pokemon Sun/Moon commercials in Japan that feature Olympic gold medalists. Certainly Bolt is the most high-profile athlete they've featured yet!

Circle is pretty impressive with the amount of 3DS eShop titles they release. It seems like they have a never-ending schedule of games. They've teased more lined up for this year. I can't wait to see what they're localizing!

Aonuma shares his favorite music from the Zelda series


Question #8: What’s your favourite music track from the Zelda series?

EA: As you may already know, I’m the president of Nintendo’s wind ensemble, and I’m the one in charge of percussion.

My favorite music track from the Zelda series is the music from the Molgera boss battle, in the Wind Waker. I really like it because that track starts with powerful percussions. It begins with Taiko Drums, which are big traditional Japanese drums, but what you hear is not the sound you get when you hit the drumhead, but the outer edge of the drum instead, which gives a very peculiar type of percussions that I’m going to perform for you now…

It’s that kind of rhythm, that continues throughout the whole track, that I find really powerful. Also, there’s a real mix between symphonic sounds and traditional Japanese music sounds, and I really like that in this song.

By the way, the name of our wind ensemble is “The Wind Wakers”.
