Splatoon dev on the supporting the competitive scene, Callie vs. Marie

A portion of a Nintendo interview with Splatoon producer Hisashi Nogami ...

Q: What’s your opinion on the Splatoon competitive scene?

A: Splatoon appeals to people of all ages, including families with young kids. We’re very happy about that. On the other hand, we also believe that the game has enough depth to be played competitively. We’re looking forward to watching the competitive scene grow in the future, with this tournament [at Gamescom] as a starting point.

Q: Callie or Marie?

A: As a developer, the game’s characters are like children to me, so this is a very difficult question. It’s like asking which of my daughters I love more. However, I have to admit that I chose Team Callie during the last Splatfest. Unfortunately, that team lost.

Amazon cancelling preorders for physical release of Runbow on Wii U (UPDATE)

UPDATE - The game is not cancelled, so no worries. This update comes straight from 13AM Games...

Runbow Deluxe is absolutely not cancelled. Runbow Deluxe is actually in the process of getting certified, so this must be a mixup. We're getting to the bottom of the pre-order thing for those that have already ordered. I repeat: not cancelled. We encourage our friends and fans to stay tuned to us for updates. If anyone else encounters pre-order issues, please tweet at us and let us know. We hope to have this sorted out shortly.

ORIGINAL POST: Here's something a bit worrying. Amazon has cancelled multiple preorders for the physical Wii U version of Runbow. Those that preordered the game are now getting an email saying that the title is no longer available. It seems that other retailers are still taking preorders for the Wii U version, so let's hope this is just an isolated Amazon issue and not an issue overall with the physical Wii U release.
