Guilty Party, Metroid Other M, and Valkyria Chronicles 2
Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Guilty Party, Metroid: Other M, and Valkyria Chronicles 2!
Disney Guilty Party
Get the whole family together and solve mysteries with Guilty Party, a Wii party game following the exploits of the brand new Dickens Detective Agency. The Master Criminal Mr. Valentine is up to no good, but you and up to three other people work together (and against each other!) to stop him. Your Wiimote will function as your all-purpose mystery-solving tool, becoming a flashlight, lockpick, or magnifying glass in different mini-games. Kind of like Mario Party, it's a bit like a board game, and it's guaranteed to provide a new experience every time you give it a go.
Metroid: Other M
Samus Aran, one of the first female protagonists in gaming, has never really revealed who she is and what she's about, but that all changes with the latest Metroid game, Other M. Nintendo is teaming up with Team Ninja (of the Ninja Gaiden series) to combine a fresh storyline with laser-precise and fast-paced action. You hold the Wiimote sideways to play the game in 3rd person, but can at any time flip the controller around to look and shoot in first person instead, a really neat combination of the two gameplay methods.
Valkyria Chronicles 2
The original Valkyria Chronicles was an under-appreciated classic tactical RPG with an anime look and feel. This sequel is coming out exclusively for the PSP, bringing the same strategic action and beautiful graphics to the small screen. The game is set in an alternate version of World War II-era Europe. You control several recruits in the Gallian Army who must prepare to combat a revolution and civil war. You control each soldier or tank individually by turns, but fighting and moving in real time, making the game a hybrid between tactical, role-playing game, and shooter.
