Oh, yeah. Which platform will it run on?
My mind is telling me no... My body is telling me no too, just so you know.

Arzest is developing the game
I'd never heard of Arzest before, so I looked them up.
Quote from: Wikipedia
It was formed on June 25, 2010 by key members of Artoon
But what's this Artoon you speak of, Wikipedia?

Well, there go my expectations for this game.

Yeah.. I don't know why Nintendo allowed them to make another one, after the travesty that is YIDS.

YI should be on consoles anyway, not handhelds.
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

It never stops bothering me that a game which used to basically be Miyamoto's statement about imaginative, visually-unique games triumphing over prerendered drek has been farmed out and recycled at least twice in the last five years.

Quote from: List of games Arzest has worked on
Wii Play: Motion (Wii)
StreetPass Mii Plaza (Nintendo 3DS) - Additional new features
Time Travelers (3DS, PSP, Vita) - Character models
Yoshi's New Island (Nintendo 3DS)

Well, at least two of those are actual games. Time Travelers is a choose-your-own-adventure story on cartridge.

That's the hypothesis that seems the most likely to me. The translation (quoted on page #2 of that thread) has some rather obvious errors.

That makes me wonder, though... Could Yoshiaki Koizumi's infamous statement of "DKC characters aren't fresh enough so that's why we didn't include them in Jungle Beat" similarly be tabloid hokum? The site that translated the interview (NSider) is apparently not very reliable....

To the people that made Vampire Rain, at that.

If that Jungle Beat interview was actually mistranslated, then that means DKVine may have gone through about 2-3 years of feeling insulted for nothing.

Upon looking at today's screenshot update, I am slightly more impressed with the game. They're screaming "Snes YI inspired level design" at me, and that is a good thing.

I still don't like how the game looks (particularly Yoshi..and everything in the foreground), but I am willing to play a demo now, at least.

If they try to be more SNES-inspired, they might put Mini-Battles and Poochy in that!
So once again, Lucario has returned to Super Smash Bros. 4 thanks to Nintendo!

The final box battle  is a microcosm of all of Nintendo's recent issue with badstalgia. And lol[wtd] @ the ending.

Most reviews claim it's decent. Most that gave it a 5 have 5 as their average game. IGN gave it a 7.8.
