Gegege no Kitarou: Youkai Olympics, A Competition with the Classic Series

I don’t usually cover Wii news unless it’s related to one of my favourite subjects. In this case, Gegege no Kitaro.


Supporting up to 4 players and making full use of the motion sensing Wiimote, “Gegege no Kitaro: Youkai Daiundoukai” allows you to play as any of the Youkai characters such as Kitaro, Neko Musume or Nezumi Otoko. Of all the different events involved, Game Watch introduces three of them.

There’s the “Grave Yard Dodging Race” where you must wave your Wiimote in 4 different directions to avoid obstacles and race to the goal. Wave up to jump, down to slide and also left or right. You can also use the nunchuk to move left and right.

Sega to Produce New Doraemon DS Game Based on 2008 Movie

Unlike the previous two DS games, “Doraemon Nobita to Midori no Kyojinden DS” isn’t going to be a card game but a platformer it seems. Not much detail have been revealed about the game other than it will be based on Doraemon’s next movie, “Nobita and the Legend of the Green Giant” which is out next year in 2008, March.

At the same time, a Wii game has also been announced featuring a bundle of mini games and a board game that make use of the Wiimote.


I just hope the platformer will be as fun as the 1992 Game Boy game, “Animal Wakusei no Densetsu“. And being the fan I am, can’t wait to see the movies!

The Wii title, “Doraemon Wii: Himitsu Douguoh Ketteisen!” is due Winter 2007 and the DS title is due Spring 2008.

Trauma Center:New Blood, Announced at E3 with Voice Acting and Online Rankings

Great news but too bad it will probably take forever to get to Europe. The official press release from Atlus goes like this:

All-New Characters, All-New Emergencies, All-New Excitement!

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — JULY 10th, 2007 — Atlus U.S.A., Inc., a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, today announced Trauma Center: New Blood, a new entry in the award-winning Trauma Center franchise, exclusively for the Wii™!

Keep your hands steady and your mind focused – this time around there’s a lot more on the line. Every cut of the scalpel, every pinch of the forceps, each and every second that ticks by is of the absolute greatest importance. If you think it’s too much to handle alone, invite a friend to assist with the operation and work together to save patients from flat-lining. The adrenaline is pumping, lives are at stake, and only you can save the day. Have you got what it takes?

Trauma Center: New Blood has not yet been rated by the ESRB.

About Trauma Center: New Blood:
At a remote hospital in Alaska, Dr. Markus Vaughn quietly toils, a surgeon who has forsaken the politics and power struggles of his former ward. He is content to use the power he has discovered within himself, the Healing Touch, to positively affect the lives of those in need. His partner is Valerie Blaylock, a promising young doctor eager to unlock her own dormant abilities.

When the facility unexpectedly closes, they are forced to return to Concordia Medical Institute, where politics are more important than patient’s lives, and doctors more concerned with image than their ministration. There they are recruited into the government organization Caduceus, where they will learn of a conspiracy with dire ramifications, and their lives will be changed forever!

Key Features:

  • Two Player Cooperative Play! For the first time in the series, work with a friend to race against the clock and save lives…success will require teamwork and communication – Every second counts!
