Tales of Symphonia 2 Renamed, Confirmed for US

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

The newest issue of Nintendo Power has an exclusive 10-page story on what they call “the first epic RPG for Wii”, which is probably true. The title has been changed from “Knights of Ratatosk” to “Dawn of the New World”, a more American oriented title that should appeal to the American crowds. The Japanese version has been announced to come out in Japan during Spring, but unfortunately the US release date has yet to be announced. To find out more about Tales of Symphonia 2: Dawn of the New World, be sure to pick up a the newest issue of Nintendo Power.

Drawn to Life Comming to the Wii

THQ and 5th Cell have announced that the DS platform Drawn to Life, will now be heading to the Wii. It’s expected that players will be able to draw their own character, weapons, enemies, races, and environments, as they were able to do so in the DS game.

I’ve played the DS game. The game felt like it was doing something that was never done before in a game. If you don’t abuse the system by making a World made of wieners and boobs, then you truly feel like you played a role in creating the world the hero travels through in the game. But even with this cool new dynamic, the game still felt it was missing something; maybe the Wii version will fill the void that was in the DS game. In addition to information on Drawn to life, THQ will release more exclusive titles, to be announce soon.
