Nintendo Media | Electronic Arts Has a Brain

By Jorge Ba-oh 26.10.2006 10

With many gaming trends Nintendo seems to be the starter, and with the training/skills games it's certainly no exception - Electronic Arts has joined the fad with a training game based on a Japanese TV show, Dragon Zakura.

The game is based on the 2006 show series with a storyline from the Mita Norifusa manga of the same name, allowing up to four people to take place in mutliplayer (online as well, apparently) battles.

More screens can be found in the game's art album, here.

Stick with C3 for future updates.

So....anyone up for a sub-par clone of a game to aid a company in their development of endless sequels with the hope of destroying creative thinking in the games industry??

......Me neither.

Dude yuor totally awesome. And i won't be killing you anytime soon.

EA want to get some market share in japan and this is probably the best way to do it.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

I watched all of Dragon Zakura!!!

In the picture it says student notebook...what could that be?

And this probably might be a good way to sell games in japan...seeing as Dragon Zakura was really popular.

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

They should make a game of Takeshi's castle, fuck that show is brilliant.

NO

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

I looked at that title & thought...

BULL.

SHIT.

Smilie Nice use of title there! Brilliant! Smilie

As for this game, it'll prolly end up full of sports questions or something Smilie

Or they'll mess it up. What happened to the Electronic Arts of old? Smilie

EDIT: I do like the tree in that screenshot though.

Well, perhaps we should give the Japanese arm of EA a chance. It has Sim City DS and this in the works...So far it's a much better line-up than the Western side of the company! Smilie

Trying to cash in on us.

I'm glad EA are trying a game like this.

Thank goodness for optimism. We could dwell on the negatives all day. Where does that leave us? Depressed, with an EA training game still coming.

Although, it'll probably turn into Dragon Zakura 07. I betcha. Smilie
