Hatsune Miku to guest star in Monster Hunter Frontier G & 7th Dragon 2020-II

Its crazy how popular Hatsune Miku is in Japan. The vocaloid goddess herself will ‘guest star’ in Capcom’s Monster Hunter Frontier G and will do the opening music for the intro to 7th Dragon 2020-II from SEGA. She also did the for the last 7th Dragon game, properly titled 7th Dragon 2020. One thing that always excited me about the 7th Dragon franchise was that they are being produced by SEGA’s legendary Rieko Kodama.

As for the Monster Hunter cameo, she isn’t really in the game. What they do have is a costume so you can dress your character up like Hatsune Miku herself. If you didn’t know, Monster Hunter Frontier G is a online enabled Monster Hunter game for 360 and PC that requires a monthly payment to play.

Aliens: Colonial Marines coming this November?

Jesus, how many times have I reported about this game making an appearance in the last 3 years and it never showed up? Frankly I’m tired of talking about it, want to see it actually be shown. SEGA has been tight lipped about this title and it might be their E3 surprise.

The ‘release’ date this time around comes from Gamestop, saying it will come out on November 12th. I see this as a retailer just taking an educated guess. They also listed Binary Domain as coming out this year, when SEGA already said early 2012. So I wouldn’t get excited at all about this news.

Platinum Games working on big multiplayer title

In a new interview with NowGamer, Platinum Game’s Atsushi Inaba says they are working on  a big multiplayer title. This is all that is said regarding the title.

“We haven’t officially announced it yet, but we have a big multiplayer title that we’re working on right now. There are many different projects running internally, but please look out for the announcement.” – Atsushi Inaba

Other things in the interview, Inaba says he does not regret the games that he created at Clover studios, which most turned out to be finical failures. This is a good, they were great games that weren’t marketed correctly. Read the rest of the interview here.
