More Project Cafe Rumors

My sources threw me a few extra tidbits on what to expect with next Nintendo console.

Hey guys, it’s Emily Rogers again.  I hope you guys have a great Easter next week.

Earlier last week, I posted an article reporting some rumors I’ve heard from reliable sources saying that Nintendo had been in contact with Rockstar and Pikmin 3 might have been moved from Wii 1 to Wii 2 (Project Cafe).  I feel good about my sources because they have been right a million times before, and now sites like 01.net and GONintendo.com and others are reporting that GTA5 might be in development for the system.   If you scroll to the bottom, you will realize that I revealed the Rockstar news/rumors way before 01net or any of these other guys started coming out with their own sources.

http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=155973

As you can see, I reported the Rockstar thing way before 01.net caught wind of it.

I always knew there was some substance to the rumors that my sources gave me.  Not surprising since my source was the one who told me about 3DS and Donkey Kong Country Returns before anyone else knew about it.   Anyways, the point is, I was the first one to report the Rockstar thing before all of these french sites started to report on it.

Anyways, I am getting more and more confident about Pikmin 3 being on Wii 2 instead of Wii 1, and I would be shocked…absolutely shocked, if Pikmin doesn’t end up as a Wii 2 (Project Cafe) launch title or at least  it comes out close to its launch.  The only way I could see Pikmin for Project Cafe not showing up at E3 this June is if they redid the game completely from scratch midway through development.  The game is really far along in development.

So anyways, my reliable sources dropped me some more info.  Some of it I can share, some of it I can’t.  But these are still rumors, no matter how you slice them.  The follow are rumors based on information I’ve been given by people who work inside of the industry.

Rumor Nuggets

  • Square Enix, Capcom, Sega, Konami, Activision, Rockstar/Take Two, Electronic Arts, Namco and Ubisoft all have development kits.
  • They each have at least one game in development for the Wii 2.
  • Expect games to be coming to this system that you would never expect on a Nintendo console.
  • Nintendo is kissing third party ****s with this console.
  • The new Nintendo controller sounds more ridiculous on paper.  When you actually see the thing, it makes a lot more sense from a design standard.
  • Expect Nintendo to roll out the red carpet for third parties so their games don’t get overshadowed.  Nintendo has been preaching to third parties that third parties won’t get screwed this time around, so if you’re expecting a ton of amazing first party games at launch…well…think again.  Nintendo wants a launch that creates confidence in third parties again so expect very few first party games at launch similar to the 3DS.
  • Nintendo solved every storage issue a third party could possibly have with the new console.  No harddrive though.
  • Nintendo revamping their WiiWare and virtual console services.  I don’t think it will be called WiiWare anymore. 
  • Almost positive that we’ll be seeing Pikmin in some shape or form.
  • A first person shooter that people love will be ported to the 3DS.  I can’t say what game, but it’s popular among FPS gamers.
  • Expect a crapload of 3DS love at this E3.  The show will be wayyy more 3DS than Wii 2 (Project Cafe).  3DS stuff will be at least 60 percent of the E3 pre-show.
  • Don’t listen to anyone who says new Nintendo console will launch by end of 2011.  They are idiots.  This holiday season is all about the 3DS and Nintendo’s E3 show will focus on that.
  • Don’t expect many games to be shown at E3 for new Nintendo console, but expect all of the key features to be revealed.
  • I am 90 percent sure you will not see a Zelda: Skyward Sword port to the Wii 2.  It will remain a Wii 1 game.
  • Nintendo approached Hideo Kojima about the new Nintendo console.  Nintendo and Hideo Kojima have a good relationship with each other.
  • A Resident Evil game is in development for the new Nintendo system.  I don’t know if Capcom is developing an RE spinoff or something part of the “main” Resident Evil series.
  • Retrostudios started working on a Wii 2 game.   It is NOT Metroid.  Retro is done with Metroid.

    How many times can you use the word “anyways” in a single article? It says you’re trailing off the topic a lot. Once or twice is okay and can add character to the article by touching on a few points off subject, but every paragraph shouldn’t begin with it.
    Just a little constructive criticism. Thanks for the info.

    I hope Retro are working on StarFox Café.
    I think as a Western developer, they’d do a great job with it.
    That is, if they stick to the Lylat Wars / StarFox 64 approach.

  12. Posted April 19, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    I just want to apologize to everyone if I came off whiney in this article. I don\’t mean to sound that way. I guess I was just having fun bragging, but I can see how some people would get irritated by it.

    I think you guys will dig E3. I just saw something really cool right now, and it\’s making me even more excited for June.

    Thanks for all that info. Hopefully, it’s not bogus. And all the people getting pissed off, I do believe she only said those things to ensure readers that she’s somewhat trustworthy. People just tend to lose civility on the interwebz, lol.

    Awesome to read Em. Take that suckers!!!! If Ninty gets GTA5 solely for their console then it’s goodnight for the PS3 and xBox! I’m not much of a Nintendo fan, I had the Wii but sold it 3 months later, so to read this has got me really excited. I also had the 360 and sold that too, not interested in a PS3 now, I’m basically over games, and if i do play any games these days, it’s done on my iPod touch, quick, cheap and easy.

    I am looking forward to the NGP though, but by the time that comes out, smartphones will have matched its power, plus Sony sell their stuff overpriced thinking their brand name still carries wait, it doesn’t.

    Brag all you want, there will always be haters, remember, hate the game not the player and of course, these are just all rumors but juicy ones at that.

    Peace.

    Whats the supposed “strategy” you speak of that they had with Black and White that Skyward Sword would copy? In terms of deliberately delaying it closer to the release of the new platform? Whats the logic in that?

  20. Posted April 20, 2011 at 6:58 am

    Hi Emily,

    congratulation for your news….one of those is report on 01.net: Rockstar is developing a game for Project Cafè.

    Sorry for my english, i’m italian :)

    Wither what this blog says is true or not, you guys are all naive to think that it would hold up its arguments as well, without stating past success with the sources. Most people wouldn’t even bat an eye.

  24. Posted April 20, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    ah maybe if not true not believe it

    What a load of bull sh…article. You really think you are in the inside in the industry and you are reporting on the crap penny pay website? If you were legit this report would of shown up on gamespot or IGN or some other reputable gaming site. This is all a load of BS and the project cafe is nothing but rumor until E3 comes up this year. The previous comments are right, your head is stuck up your butt lady. And your comment about being the first to report it is total BS also woman. This news appears before your article appeared on this website. You can do a simple google search to see all the sites that reported this before April 15th. Your no more in the “inside” for the industry than my pet doggie is!

    Oh and another thing, miss know it all. Your Skward Sword bologna can be debunked in a split second. Now lets think about Twilight Princess and what happened with that. Nintendo delayed it to release two versions for the Gamecube and for the Wii. You are saying they are delaying it just so it can be played on the Wii and the new Cafe system, just because its backward compatable. Nintendo has stated and gone on to promise this as a Nintendo Wii game. It uses the motion plus exclusively that is on the Wii system, so it will be released for that. 100% Skyward Sword will come out this year during the third or fourth quarter. There is no way in hell they would delay it to be released on another system, especially with the promised Wii controls.An exclusive developed Zelda title will be made for the Cafe, but no way will it be a launch title. We might get a Mario game if we’re lucky, but Zelda, nope. Your so called sources are those voices that you’ve been hearing in your head, hon.

  27. Posted April 21, 2011 at 10:54 am

    I said it will stay a Wii game most likely.

    As for when Zelda will release, since when are release dates concrete? The most reliable websites around can report a release date for Zelda, and it doesn’t mean squat because release dates change regularly.

    Zelda was only half way finished at the start of January this year. My sources tell me 2 things might happen. Nintendo could rush the hell out of this game and release it in November of this year to make investers happy at next weeks meeting. Or Nintendo will delay it closer to Wii 2’s launch.

    People can grill me on something subjective like a release date for a game. But how about you grill me on concrete stuff that has no chance of changing?

    I said Rockstar was working with Nintendo. Then that french site said the same thing.
    And I said Retro was working on a Wii 2 game. Then that Paul guy came around and said the same thing.

    Notice a trend? Websites are reporting stuff AFTER I report it.

    Not every single rumor that I post will be 100 percent accurate. But I know 90 percent of my stuff is pretty spot on. I said Star Fox is coming but there’s a higher chance it won’t be at E3 than it will. I said Pikmin was moved to Wii 2. I stand by all of this.

    I don’t know if you’ll see the Retro game because it’s very early in development.

    Not even Gamespot or IGN are always 100 percent accurate with everything they post. IGN once said Kid Icarus was in development for the Wii. They were right about Kid Icarus being in development. They were wrong about it being for Wii.

    But I can tell you, that 90 percent of my rumors are accurate, even if they are still rumors.

  28. Posted April 21, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    Great job!! Man is this article hot right now!! As for the rumors, we will have to wait for awhile and see what happens with them. Keep the articles coming, you are sure to get back in hot content!!

    Skyward Sword was not only halfway done this January, that quote was from an interview conducted during E3 2010. Releasing it before 2012 would not be rushing the hell out of it. It was long ago stated that the game was in its final stages of development, I think everything (before the café rumours started) have been pointing toward a release more or less around the end of 2011. If they considered releasing it close to Wii 2 that would mean the second half of 2012. Seems like a forced delay to me.

    So if by any chance your referense of people ‘grilling’ you included me, all I asked for (and still wonder) was what you meant the point of copying B & W’s strategy would be.

    Oh and I think the trolls are fat enough, theres no need to defend yourself.
