According to a new report on Polygon, the Wii U Miiverse social network will be coming to your PC web browser or smartphone in May, and later on to Nintendo’s 3DS handheld. The news came from Nintendo’s Miiverse producer, Kiyoshi Mizuki, during a talk that he gave at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) this past week in San Francisco. In his speech, Mizuki said that the Miiverse mobile and web browser app should be released by May. He also said that it will initially only incorporate basic Miiverse features, such as the ability to post comments, draw doodles, and engage with the Miiverse communities, but presumably more will be added to this following the app’s release. This announcement confirms what Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said back in January, when he first announced that Nintendo was planning a Miiverse smartphone app, which he said would initially be browser-based, but would eventually be app-based.

The game will also feature original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, and the classic melodies from the original game, but also enhanced with a new twist. Also added to the revamped version of the classic game are an all-new tutorial level, and Scrooge McDuck’s Museum, where players can track their stats and compare their progress via global leaderboards. Expect to see DuckTales Remastered released digitally this summer.
Turning to Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystaria, this is actually the name for a double pack that features both D&D: Tower of Doom, and D&D: Shadow over Mystara. These two classic Capcom arcade games have been revamped with updated HD graphics and will be released digitally in June. Just as in the arcade games, up to four players get to choose a character class before doing battle against mythical creatures from Wizards of the Coast’s D&D universe, using melee, range, and magic attacks. In addition to the classic arcade mode, players will also be able to use the all-new House Rules feature to customise their gameplay. Other new features include a character visualise, where you can track what characters you and your friends... [Read More]
