Takes place at head of longtime developer
Dan Tudge, a former vice-president and executive producer at Electronic Arts, has ranked up in title to become President of Orlando, Fla.-based independent developer n-Space. According to GamesIndustry International, the former president of n-Space, co-founder Dan O’Leary, is now the company’s CEO...
Sales were ruined
n-Space co-founder Dan O'Leary has admitted that sales for Heroes of Ruin on the Nintendo 3DS have been very disappointing. The game was released for Europe in June and for North America in July, but the dungeon-crawler didn't captivate the hearts of many. We’re not satisfied with the sales. The 3DS attach rate is…...
The game that very nearly didn't make it to WiiWare
Nigoro has released a new trailer for its long-awaited 2D adventure title La-Mulana. As you can see, it's quite similar to the Japanese trailer we saw a while back. Published by EnjoyUp Games - who stepped in at the last moment when the release of the game on WiiWare was looking all but lost -...
Back on the up
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D has been one of those 3DS releases that has been on-again and off-again enough times to be reminiscent of a tedious long-running sitcom relationship. In February it was revealed by Atari that it was on hold, while a March update from developer n-Space stated that it would arrive in late Spring. The developer...
Discussions and fan support vital
Heroes of Ruin is now available in both Europe and North America, so the online action-RPG will have adventurers from both sides of the Atlantic hacking and slashing their way to loot and glory. In terms of functionality alone, it's one of the most substantial titles on 3DS, with a major online co-op component and...
Yes, we're one day late
On occasions when European and North American release dates are weeks apart, in this case a full month, then it's worth giving a quick reminder for anyone that hasn't kept track. This one is all about Heroes of Ruin, the action RPG developed by n-Space and published by Square Enix, and it's in North American stores now. It's...
But struggles in UK
Today brings mixed news on software sales for Nintendo, though perhaps it's a positive in the market that brings the big N the most success. In Japan, Andriasang has translated results published by Enterbrain and Famitsu that show Nintendo as the biggest selling software publisher for May. Covering the period for 30th April to...
Talk about Heroes of Ruin, too
N-Space is a developer that is becoming a regular on Nintendo systems, perhaps best known for producing the DS port of Call of Duty: Black Ops. It's currently in the process of developing Heroes of Ruin on 3DS, a new RPG that will be published by Square Enix. Before we get to that, though, it seems that it's interested...
Gripping or griping?
Battery power. It is both the benevolent force that makes portable gaming possible, and the cumbersome reason some gamers choose to keep their games at home. Throughout gaming history, handheld consoles have been subjected to a slew of power-boosting peripherals promising more game time at the cost of extra bulk. The Nintendo...
Activision is the CO around here
When it was announced that the latest instalment in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series will once again make it to a Nintendo handheld, some were left scratching their heads as to why the game was being developed for the DS and not the 3DS. When fans took to the developer's Facebook page and asked why Call of...
We've got a boat and the size is perfect
It's probably not surprising to see old franchises being resurrected on the 3DS, nor is it to see classic films getting the video game adaptation treatment, the latter of which is exactly what Majesco Entertainment has up its sleeve. The publisher has announced that a new game based on the 1975 Steven Spielberg film Jaws is in the works, due to be released..
3DS is attracting a lot of mercenary activity
With the recent blunder n-Space might or might not have made, it now seems that gaming magazine Nintendo Power was supposed to reveal to the world the first chunk of game details regarding Heroes of Ruin on the 3DS, which it still is, but perhaps the artwork was supposed to debut in print and not on a...
Square-Enix and n-Space's collaboration reverts back to secrecy
Since the European branch of Square-Enix trademarked Heroes of Ruin earlier this year, it hasn't taken long for details to emerge on the publisher's upcoming title; although nothing more than a few words and a piece of artwork, even all that seemed like it was a case of "too much information". A reveal that Heroes of Ruin is..
"n-Space is down, but definitely not out"
It seems n-Space – the company behind several DS instalments of home console titles – is one of the latest development studios that's resorted to reducing its staff numbers due to the pressure of the economic climate of the last several years. Last Friday's undisclosed number of lay-offs has had the company CEO, Dan O'Leary, updating n-Space's official..
A portable companion to the regiments on the home front
With first-person shooters often making more of an impact on home consoles, n-Space is working hard to offer DS gamers something that can be enjoyed as well when Call of Duty: Black Ops launches later this year on 9th November. The company previously brought three other titles in the series to the system, including Modern Warfare, Modern..
Modern Warfare: Mobilised coming 10th November.
Activision announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilised, (yeah quite a mouthful) which is set for a November 10th release date. Developer n-Space will be producing the game, which if you didn't know made Call of Duty: World at War and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the humble DS. Mobilised will have a unique storyline designed to complement..
