New Zealand Story for the DS!

Looks as though New Zealand Story is gonna make an appearance on the Ninty DS!

http://news.spong.com/article/10420

From the look of the screenshots the bottom screen is gonna be used for a map, and it looks like they've changed the belly of the whale boss to take advantage of the dual screens.

I'd like to playtest this once it comes out (if it finally makes it)

Another day, another remake

The graphics look good and it has been given an overhaul. If only I have, and are able to use, an DS.

You could actually see Tiki enter the whale's stomach when he gets eaten.

Yeah I know you could see inside the whale on the Amiga version but that was only when you were eaten, if you look on the DS screenshot the inside of the whale is visible from the start.

Also, there appear to be crates/boxes in the air, possibly to protect tiki?

Have a DS with Supercard. But there is not a lot of cool games till now.90% japaneese crap, and just the rest for european and US releases.
The best game so far is NANOSTRAY by ex ABYSS dudes.
But sadly this is the only shoot em up for the DS.

Hope to see looooots more euro releases soon.

I've played Bubble Bobble Revolution. It has two modes, one an exact arcade port (emulation?) that only uses the bottom screen, and the updated version shown in DamienD's screenshot. The updated version plays like a PD game written in AMOS.

Exactly my thoughts. The remake is poor.

Nintendo is going to battle superior hardware with more 'fun to play' games, they say (regarding Revolution). I think that's a good move. I've also heard from people at games studios that they will have freer licensing so that essentially anyone that buys the development kit are allowed to publish games (for the Revolution). They won't interfere with that at all, it's up to the developer to get a publisher and market the game. Let's hope this will be true for DS also.

Jocks and wannabe soldiers can have their PS3 and be bored witless by sports sims and wargames, and leave the really fun stuff for us.

IMO those graphics are completely crap: how the hell could they make that cute little kiwi look so fat and sad?!
Best way to play TNZS these days is on a PSP, where the original arcade is packed into the Taito Memories Pocket umd -> http://www.the-magicbox.com/0512/game051214c.shtml

Wow. Among the classics it has Elevator Action, Rastan and Rainbow Island

Pity I don't have a PSP

Oh well, I can play them through MAME32 of course

its a shame the arcade version of NZS is so different to the amiga one (which imho is the superior version).... but that compilation sounds interesting, so i think i might look into it!

hmm What arcade version are you playing?

Apparently Amiga version is based on the Japanese Arcade version.

ps: I live in New Zealand, TNZS has many flaws.
