A New rumor war released by Falafelkid’s blog site about Manhunt 2 coming to the Wii with the AO rating still attached:
I have contact to someone who claims to work for NOA in Redmond. That person has told me in confidence that a memo was circulated about two weeks ago about Nintendo publishing ´Manhunt 2´ despite the AO rating.
I have been seeking to verify this with my sources at Take 2 and Rockstar. Also, I have asked for the memo to be forwarded to me. I am still busy on those two fronts, so please bear with me until I get more detail and can actually write a proper post.
Let me just close by saying that I do regard the source as reasonably reliable, while I simply cannot believe that Nintendo would ever consider such a move.
Mario Kart Wii In Europe This Year?
Sources say that the Wii version of Mario Kart – which is said to be revealed at E3 – will be out this year in Europe…
One of our trusted sources has given us some news about the Wii version of Mario Kart.
The game will be shown at this year’s E3, which is something that everything expects anyway. What’s more is that it will be release this year in Europe. Specific details on the game are still unknown – just the planned release date and the fact that it exists is known – but we will find all that out next week anyway.
Mario Kart for the Wii will be a “replacement” for Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Europe, which will sadly miss Europe this year, and it will be out early 2008 instead. However, this also means that the US will not see Mario Kart until early 2008, and they will be getting Smash Bros. Brawl in 2007. This means that Nintendo fans in both Europe and the US will have something to moan about (they’ll have something to be glad about, too….but there will probably be more moaning).
Also note that at the beginning of June Patrick Nagel, Deputy Marketing Manager for Nintendo Germany, stated that Europe will see Metroid Prime 3 and Mario Kart in 2007. We have reason to believe that he really was speaking the truth then.
As we have already said, we trust this source, but have put this up as rumour rather than news because we have no official way to back it up. You’ll just have to wait and see.
