Solid Snake to Black Ops: "Take this job and shove it!"

Hideo Kojima recently confirmed that he plans to end the Metal Gear series with Metal Gear Solid 2. Previous to this report, I’d seen Kojima comment that he would like to end the Metal Gear series and move onto something else, although he knows that people love MGS and want it to keep going. No...

Yamauchi disses Square in todays episode of The Young and the Squareless.

Today, FGN Online posted its translation of Hiroshi Yamauchi's hotly-debated Square comment. Here ya go:

"There is no truth to an agreement between Nintendo and Square. Square is free to say what it wants, but there are no plans for a contract, and the chances that there will be one in the future are low."

Those cute and cuddly little psycos are headed for the Game Boy Advance. Who didn't see this coming?

In his recent interview with Bloomberg Japan, Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi stated that a new Pokemon title would find its home on the Game Boy Advance early next year. He said that it was going to be a launch title but the programming wouldn't be done on time so it has been delayed.

For Those Who Like Good Translations

Justin asks for a translation and gets four of them.

Haha, I guess we Planet staffers are the only sorry souls who are either too unskilled or lazy to get a better translation of the article going as a flood of email came in either helping with sections or pointing to proper translations. I figured it would just be easier and a better way to spread... Read more...

Puissance Nintendo gets over 30 exclusive shots of two upcoming GBA games.

Between working on the FAQ update, the new site and cleaning my apartment, I haven't had much time for sleep or other Planet daily activities.

Justin posts an Altavista translation of an interesting article.

It appears that between this and the Gameboy Advance post below that the folks at Consoles France have been busy. Here's a translation of the linked article above, of course it has its quirks since it is just a machine translation... if we have any fluent French speakers who feel inclined everyone would obviously love to hear a better one.

Screen shots of Napoleon and Golden Sun for the Gameboy Advance courtesy of Consoles-France.

For anyone eagerly awaiting either the Camelot-developed RPG Golden Sun or the Nintendo-developed strategy title Napoleon it appears that consoles France has your hook up. Ever-so-kindly it appears that someone on their staff sent me an email telling me about it and with anticipation for the Gameboy Advance slowly building I figured it would be a crime to hog all of them for myself.
