Now with Orange Pocky!
In the latest issue, Famitsu reported that Nintendo will publish RUNE II, which is developed by From Software. The game will be released on May 23 in Japan.
As reported 2 weeks ago, the limited edition of the orange GBA will be available at the Pokemon Centers in Japan on April 25 at the price of 12,500 yen (around $100 US dollars). Reservations both online and at the store front start today.
On the Top 30 list, Dragon Quest Monsters Caravan Heart (GBA) pops in at second place behind Dai Niji Super Robot Taisen Alpha (PS2). Soul Calibur II for PS2 lands at fifth place while the GC version comes in at the seventh spot. Made in Wario slides from second place to sixth place. Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire drops three places and holds on to eighth place. The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past (GBA) also slips three spots to the ninth spot.
No GC games were reviewed this week. Zoid Saga II (GBA) received 28 (7,7,7,7). Reviewers all agreed that customizing the Zoids with parts and weapons are fun. Some negative comments include a dragging story mode and the lack of surprises.
Boku Jyoh Monogatari (known as Harvest Moon outside Japan) receives a gold mark (8,8,8,8). Reviewers commented that the game stayed true to the series. Like its predecessors, the game lets you manage a farm with crops and animals. Unlike other versions, the game contains much more events. However, the lack of clear goals and complicated control may be difficult for beginners.
