Merges with a medical tech company, of all things
Video game veteran Majesco has merged with PolarityTE, a company which operates in the medical industry, signalling its exit from the video game arena. Founded in 1986, Majesco has published titles like Cooking Mama, Data East Arcade Classics, Bomberman Generation, BattleBots and BlastWorks on...
No, it's not Mother 3. It's Gardening Mama 2!
Cooking Mama refuses to be pigeonholed into the culinary arts. After a commercially successful green-thumbing spinoff adventure on DS in 2009, Mama is back for more in Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends on 3DS, which is shipping to stores in North America today. Like a well-tended backyard, bask in the...
Sometimes just one serving isn't enough. Majesco understands that, so it's pulled together a few Cooking Mama double-game packs for Wii and DS. They're currently only announced for North America. For starters there's a pair of DS appetisers. Mama’s Combo Pack Volume 1 is a stew of the original Cooking Mama and Camping Mama: Outdoor...
Have a blast
Just checking: is Shin'en Multimedia's Nano Assault still one of the best looking games on 3DS? Yes, yes it is. That's good, then. The new trailer for the game — out in North America on 22nd November for just $29.99 — shows off more of the same fantastic graphics we've come to expect from Shin'en. The accompanying press release also...
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..
How good does it look?
If you were impressed with Shin'en's graphical mastery of WiiWare in Jett Rocket and the upcoming FAST — Racing League, you're going to be very pleased with what the studio's first 3DS game looks like. Nano Assault is a shooter set in a microscopic world, with your Nanite ship sent in to destroy a rapidly spreading virus...
Strange goings-on afoot
Update: PR firm Reverb Games has responded, clarifying that the second platform is already available. Project Café jets: powering down. Zumba Fitness currently sits atop the UK all-formats chart in the UK, out-selling every other game available, mostly thanks to its recent release on the Wii. The announcement that publisher Majesco is bringing a second instalment to the Wii..
Have a blast
Shin'en Multimedia has made a name for itself with pushing superb graphical performances from Nintendo hardware, from Nanostray to Jett Rocket, so the news that the developer is working on Nano Assault for 3DS should have you pricking up your ears. The fact it's a shoot 'em up set inside a world that resembles electron microscope...
Augmenting reality, paranormal-style
The 3DS has shown gamers how they can manipulate what they see via the system's external cameras thanks to the built-in Augmented Reality applications, and Majesco Entertainment's recent announcement shows that the publisher also wants a slice of the proverbial AR pie. The Hidden is in development for the 3DS by 1st Playable Productions, the studio that's behind..
Were you the lucky one?
We recently gave you the chance to win a signed copy of Monster Tale and soundtrack, and we were overwhelmed by the response, with countless entries flooding into the Nintendo Life Twitter account. We tossed all the qualifying entrants into an empty 3DS box and drew a single winning name... Congratulations to NRLegge! Thanks to everyone who entered the competition and stay..
DS adventure Monster Tale is available in North America now, so we've teamed up with publisher Majesco to bring you an exclusive contest for DreamRift's outing. Created by the key leads behind superlative DS puzzle-platformer Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, the game merges a top-screen platformer with a pet-raising simulator...
But is another studio?
Back in June, when the 3DS was revealed, Nintendo released a long list of games on their way to the system, with Majesco's A Boy and His Blob right at the top of the list (alphabetically speaking, anyway). Now developer WayForward has confirmed it's not currently working on the title, and that the announcement of the game was...
Henry Hatsworth team's new game gets a publisher
There aren't enough DS games with "monster" in the title, so when Project Monster was revealed our ears pricked up in anticipation of more news. Now it has arrived in the form of Monster Tale, a 2D platform adventure game from most of the team behind everyone's favourite bemonocled gentleman Henry Hatsworth, due to be published by Majesco..
