GN 1.0 / 2.0 has posted a ton of Revo related news stories all of a sudden, so I will put them all here in one giant update!

Nintendo has ordered NEC to start production on one of the key chips found inside the Revolution. The release of the system will take place somewhere inbetween September to December.

A game version of the popular anime One Piece could be in works for the Revolutoin, according to the latest V-Jump magazine. The title is rumored to be called One Piece Unlimited Adventure, but there has been no confirmation of the titel by Bandai-Namco.

New Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin information has come out. The names of the two vampire daughters are Loretta and Stella. The subtitle of the game has to do with a painter being involved. The painting portion is used to teleport your character to different areas/worlds in the game. There is more focus on accessory and arms collection then the demon collection from Dawn of Sorrow. The female main character is related to the Fernandez family, and maintains a platonic relationship with the other main character, Jonathan. Michiru Yamane will be providing the soundtrack for the game. Action will take place on the bottom screen, while the top screen provides a close up on the enemy you are fighting, statistics, and a map. Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin will be larger then Dawn of Sorrow. Some enemy designs have come from Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (my favorite), and Symphony of the Night. The development team behind the game is larger then the team from Dawn of Sorrow, and involves people that worked on Circle of the Moon. The engine for the game will be revamped, by stylus play will not be included. Wi-fi support will exist as either a co-op or versus mode, and there may be an online shop for players to purchase certain items. Finally, a brand new animated intro is being planned.
