Rumors have gone wild after NeoGAF user “FiddlingTaco” leaked a single picture of the nostalgic flash game Sexy Maid Hentai running on his 3DS console.
His post went on with a few details: the game is being worked as an e-shop exclusive remake for Nintendo 3DS, it will feature 3D enhancements and unspecified new content. The user also added that he personally believes a PS Vita version may come out in the future.
This should be taken as a grain of salt, as Nintendo has yet to comment on the matter.
Fans of the cute japanese hamster Hamtaro may rejoin to celebrate the sudden appearance of a teaser website that, along with a Nintendo logo, seems to imply the future announcement of a new Hamtaro game.
The teaser site shows a single line: “he’s back”, along with a timer. The fans are actually the ones who, by checking the website’s code source, have found a picture named “ham_unite.jpeg”, which seems to hint that the big reveal will actually be a remake of the game boy color classic Hamtaro: Ham-Ham’s Unite!, released back in 2001.
Rumors are also floating around that this may be a gritty reboot of both the show’s characters and game, instead of a simple remake. Due to Nintendo owning the right of the original game, the platform of choice will probably turn out to be the Nintendo 3DS. You can see a screen of the website right below, or check it out by yourself by visiting it.
The last global hardware selling charts just came out, and the Playstation Vita does not seem to be performing well.
The Nintendo 3DS is stable at 51.1M, followed by Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. The Wii U is further away from his rivals, standing at 9.2M copies sold. What really strikes though is the fact that the PS Vita is nowhere to be seen in the charts, leading fans to speculate if the portable console is doing well at all.
Sony has yet to release any official statements, but it was pointed out already by multiple fans that the lack of sales may or may not be directly correlated to the lack of exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh games for the system.
Nintendo know his fans are hard to please, but things really got out of hands when a man that goes by the name “TheGoronSmasher” filed a lawsuit against the japanese publisher in which he called the fight against the third boss in the newly released Majora’s Mask 3D “unfair, frustrating and all around shit“.
The original lawsuit goes on with crude details that TheGoronSmasher shared on the internet: “I was promised redesigned boss fights and I’m the first in line to admit that the superb, original Majora’s Mask for the Nintendo 64 was faulty of a boring and hard-to-control boss fight with the Water Temple’s last stand, the masked fish Gyorg. My hopes bursted like a bubble the moment I reached said fight in the 3DS remake of the game – while all the issues with the fight have been resolved by the new first phase, the second one that has been added is pure bullshit. The camera spins every time I start swimming, making Zora Link a pain to control; the mines are sporadic and Gyorg’s random pattern makes him impossible to attack. Your only weapon underwater are Zora Link’s spastic arm-boomerangs which moves too slow and do no shit. It was painful and even worst than the original game. Fuck you.”
Nintendo has yet to comment on the matter, and is likely that the case will be resolved out of the court. As for now, TheGoronSmasher has simply been called “an entitled crybaby” around the forums.
